Beyonce Blazes Billboard Hot 100 With…’Get Me Bodied’ / Song Achieves New Peak

Published: Thursday 14th Nov 2013 by Sam

In an era where artists are making fast food music just to jump from point “A” to “B”, there’s increasing premium attached to songs and albums with long-lasting impact.

Just ask Beyonce.

For, the ‘Single Ladies’ siren is enjoying renewed success with ‘B’Day’ anthem – ‘Get Me Bodied’.

It’s been seven years since the Swizz Beatz cut had the clubs snapping for the kidz and Naomi Campbell Walking. However, the track has staged a remarkable rebound on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 – acheiving a new peak on the tally in the process.

All a bit random, right? Well, find out why after the jump…

Last week saw a viral video of a Dr named “Deb” dancing to the track (along with surgeons) as she prepared to undergo a double-mastectomy. Haven’t seen it yet? Check it out below…

Currently sitting at 7 million views in less than seven days, the clip clearly renewed interest in ”Bodied’ – as digital sales and streaming have seen the dance-floor jam jump to #46 on this week’s Hot 100. The placing represents a new peak for the track, which had previously climaxed at #68 in 2007. (Note: Much like ‘Upgrade U’, the track has never received a “formal” release and was instead an integral component of Beyonce’s ‘B’Day’ re-release – which included a video anthology)


As one of our favourite King B cuts, it’s great to see the the song back in the spotlight – and because of such an inspiring cause. Good stuff.

Tidbit: Peep the ‘Get Me Bodied’ video below, as well as our favourite live performance of it!

    Yass motha GET ME BODIED.

  3. DIGGER BEY November 14, 2013

    I was just listening to GMB the other day. The song is still fresh and can impact the charts today. Lmao @ THE QUEEN music being timeless and influential after 7 years. When the lessers h*** say she’s irrelevant and makes garbage. Well it looks like the public have spoken and the garbage will always remain u b****** bwahahahahhahahahahahhahahahahahahahahha. #THE QUEEN IS COMING

    • RICHIE_RICH November 14, 2013

      And they say her music is generic…..The irony of it all.

    • Aquarius November 14, 2013

      Her music is garbage yet it helps cancer patients feel good… These haters need to come much harder.

    What happened to the comments??

    • RICHIE_RICH November 14, 2013

      I know , I guess TGJ did two post by default.

  5. 5 November 14, 2013

    This site is a long lasting slow news day / a Beyonce Fansite.
    There hasn’t been been good “Urban news” here in years. The same “artists”, the same ass licking every single day.
    I can still remember how the site was the S*** back in 2009/2010

  6. ADC November 14, 2013

    Weird, but okay. GMB always sounded like a precursor to Single Ladies to me. They won’t, but Columbia should use this sudden jump to officially re-release the song.

    • EnRanc November 14, 2013

      No they shouldn’t because that would just make Beyonce look like she was taking advantage of this sick woman’s health condition for her own gain. Even if all the proceeds went towards breast cancer research, trolls would still have something to say…right Lovebird? 😉

    • Special Delivery November 14, 2013

      Hell no. Beyonce would be the one that would get dragged for being thirsty as hell if her label decided to do that.

    • JB102 November 14, 2013

      They should just take this bit of random promotion and the positive effect it’s having on the song in stride. Doing something to force it more wouldn’t look good.

      It’s a good sign though, IMO. A wildly successful world tour, a renewed interest in her older music makes, all while everyone sits on the edge of their seats for new music, leads me to believe that Bey’s next era will be a successful one.

  7. Special Delivery November 14, 2013

    That vid put a smile on my face. Go Deb!

  8. Applause November 14, 2013

    Something fishy is going on how does a 8 year old song just happen to re enter the charts and then re debut in the top 50s. Hmmm

    • Special Delivery November 14, 2013

      Because of the trending Youtube video of the woman in the hospital dummie can you not read?

      • Applause November 14, 2013

        Purchase ARTPOP

    • Bey-Minaj November 14, 2013

      No one wants to.

  9. Applause November 14, 2013

    She must be selling the single for 50 cent on iTunes or something

    • Special Delivery November 14, 2013

      A gaga stan talking about discounts? Read the article fool.

      • Applause November 14, 2013

        Hmmmm whatever B**** make sure you buy a copy of ARTPOP 😉

      • Special Delivery November 14, 2013

        I just might cos Gaga needs as much help as she can get after those tragic first week predictions.

      • Applause November 14, 2013

        Oh B**** only thing thats tragic is 4 not being able to sell 3 million worldwide.

      • Special Delivery November 14, 2013

        Honey, by the looks of fartpop not doing any better, 4 sold more first week and it leaked and had no top 10. So watch it.

    • DIGGER BEY November 14, 2013

      B**** don’t worry about it. Why don’t u worry about why Gaga ass is on the way out the door, after 5 years in the business bwahahahahaahah. #POOR DAT

    • Absolved November 14, 2013

      Probably somewhere scratching the fleas from the crevices of her elbow flab.

    • Davis November 14, 2013

    • Bonita Applebum November 14, 2013

      Somewhere seething bc Perfume debuted at #76, while Bey reenters @ #46 with a 7 year old song.


  21. Davis November 14, 2013

    Beyonce makes some of the best FEEL GOOD music.

  22. WE FOUND RIHANNA. November 14, 2013

    BEYONCE is the QUEEN? Ciara is the biggest FLOP of the music industryyyyyyyy!!!!!!

  23. Amanda Bynes November 14, 2013

    Beyonce is ugly.

  24. Bionic November 14, 2013

    I actually like that song. Good to get dressed up too on a girls night out.

  25. B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare November 14, 2013

    ‘Get Me Bodied’ is a certified classic. STILL being played on radio, clubs, weddings, etc… today. This is what you call true impact.

  26. UniversalChic November 14, 2013

    Beyonce strikes again. Like I said before and I’ll say again people got to comfortable when “4” under performed. I really believe y’all talked so much junk about her that you actually started to believe that this chick who has been dominating her lane for 15 years straight from her solo to her group career could not snatch a wig or two if she actually desired to. All this “where da single” “she is so scared to release ha single” “snippet queen” comments are quite funny now seeing as how you can see by this she can EASILY impact the charts with her new material because people actually want to hear music from her and as long as it is radio friendly why would she NOT be able to get another hit? Beyonce punches y’all without saying sh!t and I live for it.

    • RICHIE_RICH November 14, 2013

      Aint that it. She is a boss

      • UniversalChic November 14, 2013

        I mean how is the queen shitting with a 7 year old song on a chart that she would “Neva” see her name on again?Remember her is music is so “sub-par/boring” and has “No impact” though? how is the queen selling out a tour that is grossing more then their faves with her “subpar/boring” music that “flopped” though? I didn’t know it was possible to be irrelevant yet SLAY the relevant gurls. Can you imagine the future excuses when the new era arrives? Can you see the meltdowns when forbes highest grossing tours and entertainers is released?I can sis.

      • RICHIE_RICH November 14, 2013

        The kids are going to GAG. I’m sorry Beyonce IMO is the Best in the game. SHE IS THE OVERALL PACKAGAE.

      • UniversalChic November 14, 2013

        I and the entire world agrees with you! She has the respect,sales,acclaim,beauty,talent ,work ethic and power all in one hand in in the other hand she has a loving husband who is just as successful as her , a beautiful baby girl who adores her, family and friends who never lay her out in the street and love her. She doesn’t have to TRY to outshine others she just does and that’s why she is the best. The only star I can really think of who has kept her career steady and personal life sane.

      • RICHIE_RICH November 14, 2013

        You put the hammer dead on the NAIL. That’s the reason the haters hate her. I live, she has everything a women could ask for.

        MONEY, POWER AND RESPECT along with a FAMILY.

    • RICHIE_RICH November 14, 2013

      Everybody was on their feet including you’re FAV.

      Yasss motha give it to em. Catch how she drops the mic. So much SHADE, I got my life.

      • #NoMoreHoes November 15, 2013

  27. Amanda Bynes November 14, 2013

    OMG! RuPaul is looking flawless and fabulous. When a drag queen looks so much better than a real woman.

  28. mypenizfresh November 14, 2013

    This truly shows the impact Beyonce has.. I’m telling you the fact that she can sell out tours with no new music, and impact the charts with 7 year old singles is a testament to that.

  29. UniversalChic November 14, 2013

    #46 HOT 100
    #1 R&B Streaming Songs
    #5 R&B Songs
    #14 R&B / Hip Hop Songs

    But she has no chart impact?Her music is boring?

    Punch them B!

  30. CEE November 14, 2013

    I still think Bday is Bey’s best album! This video made me smiile! Good Luck, Miss Deb!

  31. Not my goodies November 14, 2013


  32. Mwah November 14, 2013

    Cool! Hope the lady is better

  33. Vandrea November 14, 2013

    On one hand, I’m thrilled that GMB benefitted from the streaming effect, but on the other this just proves how ridiculous the altered Hot 100 rules are.

    :: Taking my Bey stan hat off for a second ::

    A 7 year old song re-entering the charts solely based on a popular viral video on YouTube made by someone who was joking around with it is pure absurdity. The randomness of it all makes Billboard look uncoordinated and subsequently less credible.

    :: Puts my Bey stan hat back on ::

    I hope the video gets more views and triggers airplay so that the song climbs into the top 40.

    • #NoMoreHoes November 15, 2013

      The viral video actually made ppl more interested about “Get me bodied” and they started to order it on demand and ask for it on the radio. That’s why it re entered the charts:). Don’t forget, the puplic are responsible for any chart topping songs, because they’re the ones one buy and order the songs on the radios and stuff.. so yeah. It just shows how ppl still love bey’s music.

  34. Third Ward Trill (aka quetta) November 14, 2013

    Aww that was cute..she was gettin down a lil bit lol and bey when are you going to let these girls shine?

  35. LA LA November 14, 2013

    Love this video of Beyonce crying for Babygirl Aaliyah. It’s a shame how people like to make it seem like they hated each other when Beyonce herself said Aaliyah was the first person to embrace Destiny’s Child.

    • Mwah November 14, 2013
