Beyonce’s ‘7/11′ Tops Urban Radio / Becomes Fifth #1 Single From ‘Beyonce’ Era

beyonce-711-video-1-thatgrapejuice

Once the Buffy to Rihanna‘s Faith, the latest era of Beyonce‘s career has seen her swerve into the the ‘Pour It Up‘ singer’s “crazy, sexy, cool” lane and- if we’re being really honest- beat her at own game.

The result? A cooler and far more relatable Beyonce sat at the top of the brand arguably fresher today than it ever has been.

That might be one way to explain why her latest single ‘7/11 now sits atop Urban radio this week, becoming the fifth bop lifted from her ‘Beyonce‘ campaign to do so.

It success comes as the album’s Urban singles continue to outperform its Pop siblings, topping the Urban radio tally after the Hip Hop single ‘Drunk in Love’ outperformed the Ryan Tedder- penned ‘XOon the Billboard Hot 100.

And The Predictions Are In: Ne-Yo’s ‘Non-Fiction’ Set To Sell…

ne-yo-non-fiction-thatgrapejuice

Fact: Despite being greeted with mixed critical review, ‘Non-Fiction,’ the latest album from serial hitmaker Ne-yo, is bound to break into the Billboard 200’s top 10 upon the chart’s refreshing next week.  Coming as the only new title predicted to impact the chart’s currently reigning dectet, the album will give the singer-songwriter his sixth consecutive top 10 entry.

Fueled by the Jeezy-assisted ‘Money Can’t Buy’ and top 40 hit ‘She Knows’ ft. Juicy J, ‘Non-Fiction’ is set to be the crooner’s second release to hit charts without a top 10 single to support it.  A feat arguably to blame for its first week sales performance, as the project is on track to deliver his lowest numbers to date.

Chart Check: Nicki Minaj Close To Trumping Taylor Swift Hot 100 Record As Country Star Loosens Grip On Billboard 200’s Top Spot

nicki drake thatgrapejuice wayne

This week’s Hot 100 and Billboard 200 saw little movement in their respective top 10s, but elsewhere on the charts, the shakeups are making history.

As her album ‘The PinkPrint’ continues to leave its mark on album charts’ upper ranking, Nicki Minaj is seeing her latest release – ‘Truffle Butter’ ft. Drake & Lil Wayne – edge her closer to surpassing chart titan Taylor Swift‘s status for entries on the Hot 100.

Becoming the rapstress’s 60th mention on the tally, only Swift (66) and Aretha Franklin (73) block her ability to claim the title of “most entries on the Hot 100 by a female.”  Her Young Money co-stars, Drake & Wayne, also have reason to rejoice as ‘Truffle’s trek up charts lands them in Hot 100 history books as well.

“Lil Wayne logs his 124th entry, second only to the cast of Fox’s Glee‘s record 207. Drake makes his 74th visit, tying late icon Ray Charles for sixth place…” (source)

The good tidings bring the trio a much needed distraction from their growing label drama, but tuck in below to see who else is celebrating for chart moves on the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 this week:
