Beyonce Update

Published: Thursday 4th Dec 2008 by Sam

Beyonce was among the performers at the Christmas In Rockeller Center show in New York City last night. The 27 year old superstar performed ‘Ave Maria’ from her top selling ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’ album. As ever she delivered a top notch performance.

In other Bouncy news, her smash ‘Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)’ has hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, following a surge in digital downloads.This serves as her 5th solo #1 – one more than she achieved with Destiny’s Child. Congratulations! {Source}

Also, reports are mounting that Beyonce has been lined up for the X Factor final next week – with a major performance with hot favourite and ‘diva in the making’ Alexandra. Should be interesting… {Source}

    I’m not really feeling her this time around. No shade, Im a huge Beyonce fan but she’s not giving me nothing this time around. The album is weak as hell, she really could have came harder. It just makes me so mad becuz all of these other artist really have GREAT music but those are the one’s who get slept on. That is all!!

    Random: BRANDY’S NEW ALBUM “HUMAN” IN STORES DEC. 9, GO GET IT..IT’S REALLY GOOD!

    Oh so bey album sold well I thought the haters said it didnt sell to good.

    We technically can’t say yet that “Circus” will go straight to number 1, just because of it’s iTunes position. Though I hope it does, because if we all remember “Gimme More,” went to number 1, but it only ended up peaking at number 3. I do think if “Circus,” holds the number 1 position on iTunes it has a great chance of becoming her 3rd Hot 100 number 1.

    That being said, “Single Ladies (Put A…)” has only became so successful in my eyes because of it’s dance routine, promotion (all of the performances, and the fact that it is an up tempo song. Not a bad song, but not the best either.

    It’s really as if “Single Ladies (Put A…)” is being force fed to us, by how many times we have to hear hear. Nonetheless it’s sadly growing on me more and more-especially the ending, like last 45 seconds!

    WOOOHOOO!!! AT LAST! i knew it! it was unavoidable! i’m soooo happy 4 her!!! xD
    as for the performance…. need i say that it was beautifully performed?! as usual… “If I Were A HATER” i’d defenitely hate her for this and comment some rubbish… as expected ;P

  7. !watevaisayistrue! December 4, 2008

    I didn’t like the performance it was lacking the emotion that the song has…You can tell at some parts she was out of breath….It is a hard song to sing…..As far as Britney….Her album is gonna sell more than Beyonce’. Alot of people are upset at “I Am…Sasha Fierce”….(Raises Hand)……Her dress was nice though (LOL)

    GLAD KELLY ROWLAND LEFT MATTHEW KNOWLES WITH HIS TACKY F***** UP MANAGEMENT SKILLS…..NEXT WE NEED MICHELLE TO LEAVE…SOLANGE HAS ALREADY SWITCHED….SORRY DC3 STANS….LIKE ME….THAT REUNION MAY NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY ! ! !

    Very lovely performance and she looks nice.

    #1 on Billboard Hot 100, Billboard R&B, Billboard 200 Albums, UK Charts, iTunes Singles, iTunes Videos, iTunes Ringtones, etc …. yeah…. defenitely a world domination! ;P slow, but still the final result counts! can't wait for the HALO and DIVA video premieres!

    Single Ladies may be not that good, but it is defenitely a GROWER! i was really dissapointed at first but now i'm kinda ADDICTED to it! lol!

    I really admire this woman. for her talent, inner & outer beauty, personality, and especially for her HARD WORKing! she really deserves it!

    WOW. its funny how people stress the fact that Beyonce is wack but still they take the time to sign a petition…lol….get a f****** life….and she is out of breath because its 30 degrees out side and she is wearing a dress that is bearing her chest….and she still sounded amazing….people always have to find something to hate on this chick with…

  14. antertain December 4, 2008

    Flawless full of emotion and well executed if any1 really says that's emotionless has bad ears STR8 up… There's nothing wrong with being diverse sometimes and i really think she sings it well..

    As for "Single Ladies" it is defo about the routine and live showings. Most times Bee does simple songs there's a bigger reason behind it and i wasn't a fan of the song until the video came & the live performances. She tearin it up..

    I really hope her & Alex get to duet on X-factor be an interesting blend of the vocal tones they have..

  15. Anonymous December 4, 2008

    Hate the song, as for a matter of fact the album is weak, but its going to sell because of who she is. Her best album was her 1st one, Destiny Child need to come back.

    Can’t wait for that Keyisha Cole album. Now I know that will be hot.

  16. Anonymous December 4, 2008

    LMAO! Bey(once) will NOT be at the inaguration. You might as well hang that up to dry. No one has invited her, she invited herself. That is not a place to swing your wig around and twork your body fat.

    Samual, Samuel, Samual…whatever the f*** your name is, I don’t care. Bey(once) gets a number one, she gets a congratulations…Rihanna gets a number one, she gets a SMDH…. your a lame.

    I think she still needs destiny’s child cause bee you kinda boring girl and your album is wack

  18. Anonymous December 4, 2008

    the performance was flawless and good…it doesnt matter if she mess up so what she still does the dam thing…you can keep saying it was good she needs to go away but she here to stay sorry

    I think the lp is fire from song to song fast and slow the album is a banger….some people might not like it but i think its her best album to date imo lol dil was good but it had to many slow songs for me but this album here is that stuff…it addictive very addictive

    SHE IS AMAZING!!!!

  20. Anonymous December 4, 2008

    I must admit,

    I truly do not think Beyonce would be where she was today if she just started out as every other regular solo artist. Destiny’s Child and her being the front piece really helped edge out her solo career. Not saying she isn’t a good artist, but D.C. really is what made her a household name. Majority of her fans are original Destiny’s Child fans…

    Not to mention a good reason why her music sells is because it damn near could be a Destiny’s Child song, with the girls on it as backup. For instance when I first heard “Lose My Breath,” I seriously thought it was a solo Beyonce song=NO JOKE!

    Not dissing Beyonce either, but I’d love for somebody to refute that claim, and do it well.

    beyonce sold well but not great! i thought she would pull atleast 700 k if not a milli but she pulls only 400 k thats kinda wack although not bad. she would sell much better if if she appealed 2 both males and females. almost all her songs got ‘all my ladies in it wat about “all my fellas ” ? you would swear de r only ladies in her life

  22. Anonymous December 5, 2008

    We can debate if Beyonce would be Beyonce without Destiny Child….But then we will have to do the same with Michael Jackson, Patti Labelle, Diana ROss, Justin Timberlake,Tina Turner, Glady’s Knight….I mean come one lets stop with the foolishness people…

    Alicia Keys sold 741K with “I AM” and still sold less than BDAY….Lil Wayne SOld 1.5M his first week and he is not even 3x’s platinum yet….FIrst week sales is a big deal yes I am not going to front…but what does it mean when it underperforms in the long run…Beyonce BDAY out sold ALicia and Lil Wayne album..

    Beyonce sold 482K her first week, thats excellent…people wish and pray for that type of success…Just because its Beyonce doesnt mean she have to sell 700K to 1m in her first week…Destiny Child biggest first week sales were 630k…and they still sold over 60 million records….

    Its seems to me that Beyonce only does these movie to be the 1st woman in history to win a grammy and a oscar.

    But Beyonce is not a actress at all, she really cant act to save her life. With J-Hud on the hills to be the very 1st woman to win the grammy and Oscar b4 Beyonce.

    J-Hud already upset Beyonce 1 time will she do it agian???

    Beyonce seems to rush at all the movies b4 any one else get to them. Beyonce name alone will draw money, but if she cant act y keep givin her roles to a movie??????

    Beyonce can sing her ass off, but the point is that every movie she has done its been about singing, if she is already a singer tell me where the hell the acting come in at????

    Singer playing a singer???
    A gay boy play a gay boy??
    A teacher playing a teacher???

    Where the hell is the acting in that??? Thats not acting at all.

    Beyonce is not a actress till she do somthing outside of her own box!!!

    J-Hud I’m rooting 4 u, J-hud u already won the oscar, now win yo Grammy so u can be the 1st girl in history, to win a Grammy and A Oscar!!!!!!

    Go J-HUD!!!!!

    The problem with Kelly is not that she lacks talent. Clearly she’s talented. The problem is not that she lacks star quality or that ‘X’ factor. Clearly she’s a star with some form of appeal;she’s been making music for over a decade,and has six years of solo stardom under her belt. The issue is not her looks. She’s one of the most attractive women in the industry. In fact she’s gorgeous. The issue is not her body. Her body is amazing (breast implants or not). The problem with Kelly is she spends more time ‘big-upping’ everyone else than she does herself. She’s always talking about what an “incredible” manager Matthew is. She brags on Tina Knowles. At one point in time she couldn’t make it through an interview without mentioning Beyonce’s name. She even praises Solange for her song writing skills. She’s always giving others props. She never gives herself enough credit for anything. Unfortunately,Kelly’s most admirable quality is also her biggest draw-back. She really is humble. She doesn’t just pretend to be. She’s modest and even meek,but that sometimes makes her look passive and inhibited. Kelly has an incredible voice but she often holds back when she sings. Where as Beyonce does not have the best voice in the world but Beyonce is an uninhibited singer. She never holds back and she controls her voice well. Not to mention she has great showmanship. Kelly Rowland,in my opinion,is a raw performer. She’s spontaneous which is both good and bad. Her performances are fun and at times passionate,While Beyonce’s are more mechanical. EVERYTHING Beyonce does is rehearsed. Even her ballads are choreographed. Both these women have commonalities but they also have contrasts. One is,Beyonce has no problem taking all the credit. She had no problem taking it in DC and she certainly has no problem taking all of the limelight as a solo artist. Kelly needs to learn how to be a little self-centered. Make people respect you as a solo act by carrying yourself like a solo act. Stop referencing Destiny’s Child. Don’t mention anyone with the last name Knowles. Don’t hold back on your craft,and don’t let the audience sing more of your song than you do. If Kelly portrayed her self as a star maybe people would see her as a star. Then,maybe they’d buy her records and pay to see her in concert. No one wants to support someone who seems content playing second string all of the time.

    (above time/person)GOOD POINTS about Kelly Rowland.

    I think she also needs to stop straying away from what needs to be her genre, Hip Hop & R&B with a little Pop influences. Drop your album a week after Beyonce's did, because you should be confident in the fire hot records you have on it, so that even if it doesn't sell 1st week, it will when the 2nd and 3rd singles drop!

    I’m a very Quiet person but i’m going to have to ghetto on y’all asses.Y’all don’t know s*** bout Beyonce.Let’s take this in Steps
    (1)If y’all don’t like Beyonce,why take time to write s*** about her.It’s obvious your typing in her name in the search bar to find Blogs about her.Why waste time.
    (2)What’s this stupidity about her taking all credit for Destiny’s Child.I’ve seen Interviews and she would try her best to promote her friends and her sister.When one of her songs leaked on the computer,she said”This is not my time for my music to be released,please support Solange’s,Michelle’s and Kelly’s new albums”.SO SHUT UP!!
    (3)About her acting.Beyonce never proclaimed to be the best actress in the world,but she has alot of potential.If not,all the movies she was in wouldn’t be a Block Buster hit,excluding “Carmen hip hopera” because that was exclusively released to HBO.You say her acting is bad,then what is Mariah Carey.EXACTLY.And to those who say she only acts as a singer.she actually is playing in a movie next year named “Obsessed” which has nothing to do with singing.SO SHUT UP!!
    (4)Her album is not weak.All y’all want to do is gyrate on eachother or some perverted song related to sticking my d*** in your p****.If any album doesn’t have that it’s weak to y’all.Isn’t it.Her album is very classic and has more damn meaning than RIHANNA’s.The point is, New Beyonce,New sound.SO SHUT UP!!
    (5)About the sales of her album only the end results would tell us thatIt’s not how it starts that matters it’s how it will end.SO SHUT UP!!!!!

    Hey, just don’t bring Mariah into this… OK??? You haven’t seen her in “Tennessee” yet. So shut up. When we all see it, then we’ll discuss it… :))

    And I guess you haven’t watched “Wisegirls” either… 🙂

    You know what?
    i think I am…Sasha Ferice
    did realy poorly not hating on the girl cause shes a fantastic singer (one of the best).
    But she had 2 singles out not 1, but 2 and they had really great success on the hot 100 chart and also had heavy promotion (way more than kelly and michelle put together) but the album only managed too sell 480,000 way less what the label expected.
    I believe her album is great but the rest of the songs are not single material which i doubt will bring huge numbers, then she will re-release like she always does and release a spanish version a top of that but I don’t think this will help at all because she has appeared on every damn show on Tv already whats next?
    just cause im keeping it real don’t mean im hating I do think she is the BEST…
    but I noticed too she is loosing many gay fans and party people.

    F** WHAT ALL YA’LL SAYING BEYONCE BETTER THAN ANY OTHA FEMALE IN MUSIC RITE NA N ONE OF DA BEST EVER!

ER B**** KNO BEYONCE DA BEST DEY JUST DON’T LIKE TO ADMIT IT.

    That was a really lovely performance from Beyonce. I don’t even like the song that much but her voice was on point in this one and she looked great (not that that means anything but it’s true. lol)

  34. Anonymous December 8, 2008

    Actually Sasha Fierce has been selling better than B’day:

    Sasha Fierce
    482k first week
    254k second week
    170k third week
    =906 overall third week

    Bday
    541k first week
    170k second week
    80k third week
    =791 overall third week

    So whoever said that Sasha Fierce is performing poorly is sadly mistaken!!!!
