Beyonce Sparks ‘Obama Earrings’ Sales

Published: Monday 29th Oct 2012 by David

With 13 million albums sold in the US alone, four Box Office #1s, and 9 US #1 singles scored since her 1997 debut, it’s safe to say anything Beyonce touches turns to gold…or triple platinum.

However, a Ms. Erika Pena learned the true power of Brand Beyonce this month when earrings she designed in support of 2012 Presidential candidate Barack Obama were worn by the singer on a night out with husband Jay Z.

Her story below…

On October 20th, Knowles took to dinner in NYC’s Tribeca sporting the above hand made earrings, of which only five were available…at the time.

However, once snaps of her date hit the net, Ms. Pena- a jewelry designer- received an influx of orders requesting the accessory, which come in support of Obama’s second bid for the White House this November.

As it stands- just one week after Knowles wore them- Pena has sold 1,300 pairs at a price of $32.

Speaking exclusively to TMZ, she revealed she has received orders from across the globe and if our math is accurate, has generated $41,600 in a single week because of the singer’s support.

So, before she headlines  Super Bowl 2013 at New Orleans’ Mercedes-Benz Superdrome , we ask…

Will you buy a pair?

    • CALL ME HATERRRRRRRRR October 29, 2012

      you sound very stupid talking about a internationally known MEGA star who doesnt have to say a world and become a trend! Her God giving talent is the power to persuade!!! as she said in RTW

      and “4” was a platinum record selling over a million!

      Live your life with your miserable ass

      • CALL ME HATERRRRRRRRR October 29, 2012

      • WTF October 29, 2012

        Sorry I didn’t understand a word of what you just said but its not your fault you’re illiterate. Maybe you should come back to the blog scene when you’ve brushed up on your grammar skills 🙂
        Then again, its not your fault – listening to Beyonce songs would create that problem for anyone.

    With 13 million albums sold in the US alone, four Box Office #1s, and 9 US #1 singles scored since her 1997 debut, it’s safe to say anything Beyonce touches turns to gold…or triple platinum.

    I think even they delusional Beyhive knows all of this is false. She has only sold 11 million albums, has 5 number one singles and her last album did not go near triple platinum.

    Good for her and Obama, but that doesn’t change the fact those earings are pretty ugly. Why do people wear hoop earrings, they look hideous.

    • DragginForBey October 29, 2012

        Goodbye, Rihanna has 54 number one songs worldwide if we wanna count every single market. Plus madonna has like 200, those do not count, she has 5, get over it or go buy some more copies of I was here so it can get past its peak of 100.

      • BIG DOGG October 30, 2012


        I did NOT say “she has 13 #1’s around the globe”, I said she has 13 #1’s which topped either the Hot100, or the GLOBALTRACKCHART, OR topped them BOTH.


  8. tits mcgee October 29, 2012


    I’m glad the exposure beyonce brought this woman helped her sell some earrings. But please stop acting like 1,300 set of earrings are a stupendous amount sold for such a high profile wearer….

    Just stop.

    • The Boss October 29, 2012

      Yeah, but to go from only making 160.00 for earrings to 41,600, has to be nice for her bank account. Plus more sales are to come.

  9. DOSSOME October 29, 2012


  10. Cramped October 29, 2012

    Ahh Beyonce is a REAL superstar, worth much more than a singles seller.

  11. Monstarebel October 29, 2012

    Sam is the most delusional queen of them all!!!!

    • DragginForBey October 29, 2012

      Beyonce helps the economy as Rihanna helps herself to the Vagisil. Win win!

  12. F October 29, 2012

  14. Gilberto October 29, 2012

    Madonna was interviewed by Elle Degeners, and she said Beyoncé has an INCREDIBLE voice. She was also asked about other b******, like Katy, R******, Gimmick, Lipsyncney, and she only said things about their looks. Picture the difference, b******? Beyoncé is known for her talent. The other b****** are know for their looks, because they don’t have any talent to show.

    • Suicide Blonde October 29, 2012

      Oh now you follow Madonna and care about what she says.

      • Rihanna Navy October 29, 2012

        IKR LOL

  15. Try Again October 29, 2012

    Still trying to convince people how great this thirsty copycat liar is.

    She’s not. She is overrated and under-educated.

    • TinaMinaj October 30, 2012

      And yet can still spark sales in a snapshot and knows more than you. Please sit! Education doesn’t only happen in a classroom…

      • Kesha K October 31, 2012

  16. B_STANNING(BEY STAY WINING) October 29, 2012

  17. NEVER THAT SERIOUS October 29, 2012

    so how many sets of earrings would she have sold without Beyonce “help”?2,3,6,20 sets?Then she’s in the wrong profession coz 1300 sets ain’t nothing to brag over…

    She does it so effortlessly …….
    @Beyon4life…….. lmaoooooo ……

  20. R****** Navy: Broke,Ugly & bitter October 29, 2012

    YAS BEYONCE!!! NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF BEYONCE!!! There is a reason why the big brands(Pepsi,L’Oreal,Nintendo,McDonalds,etc) flock to her for endorsements. Hence why she’s maintain her L’Oreal endorsement for the past 10yrs & counting since she was 19yrs old(meanwhile the lessors can’t even maintain for a year)

    LOL @ the bitter fugly haters trying to shade her album sales. Don’t do it! Check the recent receipts from Billboard Sound-scan.

    Beyonce has sold 13 million albums in the U.S., according to SoundScan. That’s in addition to 17.1 million in album sales that’s she logged as a member of Destiny’s Child.

    Here’s how her four solo studio albums have sold:

    4.9 million, “Dangerously in Love” (2003)
    3.3 million, “B’Day” (2006)
    3 million, “I Am … Sasha Fierce” (2008)
    1.3 million, “4” (2011)

    And, here are Beyonce’s top-selling digital songs:

    4,995,000, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” ( 5 platinum next week or the week after. )
    3,191,000, “Telephone” ( Lady Gaga featuring Beyonce)
    3,137,000, “Irreplaceable”
    3,123,000, “Halo”
    2,844,000, “If I Were a Boy” (I hope it will be the 3 plat one day.)
    1,691,000, “Sweet Dreams”
    1,597,000, “Crazy in Love” (featuring Jay-z)
    1,438,000, “Check on It” (featuring Slim Thug)
    1,350,000, “Beautiful Liar” (Beyonce & Shakira)
    1,037,000, “Diva”
    1 million (as of this week), “Best Thing I Never Had”

    I mean, Beyonce generated 13mil in solo, along with 17.1mil in sales with destiny’s child(as the leader singer), which would bring a total of 30.1mil in album sales in her whole music career. Which is why Beyonce named her the female artist of the decade(2000s). I see why the haters are upset and bothered. She’s just getting started.

    • SPILLING TEA STATING FACTS October 29, 2012

      and rihanna 37 million in just 6 years all. by. herself. BAHAHA #POOR DAT

      • BALL SO HARD October 29, 2012

        37 million albums?????????????

        YEAH right now I feel even more blessed with a 97/100 grad at math.

        AT LEAST, I don’t let any Beauty And Care Magazines fool me about my own fave’s numbers, and force myself to believe something I don’t even think is possible.

        Instead, I take it from worldwide year-end charts and certifications released by RECORD LABELS and OFFICIAL CHART COMPANIES.

        Tell’em the f*****’ TRUTH, bruh ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

  21. Kelvin (BEYHIVE B****) October 29, 2012

    I see alot of rihanna fans talking s*** about album sales but where is rihanna number 1 album? Isnt this her 7th attempt? Yea pretty pathetic you think! I also see some “1300 earrings isnt a lot” but lets not forget she sold 5 prior to that day DIP SHITS! On top of that she has more ORDERS coming in from all over the world which means they will have to pay full price, plus shipping&handling and the owner can up the price because the value has gone up now that they are a hot commodity. Think about things before typing it

  22. BIG DOGG October 29, 2012

    Her star power . . . . . . . .

  23. slimsexy October 29, 2012

    According to holywood reporter the designer only made 2000 pairs of the earings,thanks to Beyonce she sold 1300 pairs and she has shipped like 16000 pairs to countries where there is demand for it.Also as at the time the report was made she got like 400 orders in one day
    What more can I say beyonce wore a pair of earings for “dinner”not a red carpet event or even a music video and its a hit!more power to brand beyonce

  24. fatu sankoh October 29, 2012

    every Rihanna stan needs to go have several seats next to the recycle center where you’ll find all refunded receipts of Battleship. This post doesnt concern any of you.

  29. mddiva37 October 30, 2012

    Those are ugly earrings and they look like it says ‘BAMA’ not OBAMA. Just because half a word in in the loop doesn’t mean it’ll read what it’s supposed to say. But her fans would buy her s*** if she was selling it.

  30. CURLY SUE October 30, 2012

    Those earrings are GROSSLY GHETTO!
