Who runs the world? Clearly not Beyonce. The entertainer’s new single, ‘Run The World (Girls)’, has made its debut on the Billboard Hot 100 but at a much lower position than her fans would have hoped.
‘Run The World’ entered the lineup at #33, selling only 77k downloads and garnering just over 18 million audience impressions. The figures earn the song a placement at #23 on the Digital Songs tally and #65 on the Radio Songs chart, respectively.
In contrast, both of Lady GaGa and Britney Spears’ 1st singles – ‘Born This Way‘ and ‘Hold It Against Me’ – debuted at #1 on the Hot 100. However, both records received more promotion than ‘Run The World’.
Hopefully, Beyonce manages to tear herself away from her escapades in France and give the single the push it needs to succeed. If not then it will be on to the next one. Okay aunt Bunni?
