Beyonce’s Self-Titled Album Eyes US 1 Million Mark

Published: Tuesday 24th Dec 2013 by David

Christmas has certainly come a day for early for ‘Now That She’s Gone’ singer/songwriter Beyonce today, now that US sales of her new self-titled album see her stand no more than a few days of unwrapping the sweet gift that is the ‘1 million mark’ in the United States.

Confused? Well, don’t be…because this is happening and it’s happening now. For, no more than three weeks after its release, it is now on course to scan its 1 millionth copy in a matter of hours thanks to the continued support of her domestic market’s general public!

Billboard’s good news below…

They share:

“Beyonce’s new album is nearing one million in U.S. sales and seems certain to top the Billboard 200 for a second week.

After the set blasted in at No. 1 a week ago on the Billboard 200 chart with 617,000 sold in just three days, industry forecasters suggested the surprise album would sell perhaps 260,000 in its second week on the chart (and first full week on sale).

Well, that number turned out to be far too low, so say sources. Industry contacts suggest the album sold at least 340,000 copies in the week ending Dec. 22, greatly surpassing its 260,000 forecast. That 340,000 sum should easily place it at No. 1 for a second week on the Billboard 200 chart.

The official final weekly sales figure for the album — as compiled by Nielsen SoundScan — will be announced on Thursday, Dec. 26 on Billboard.com and Billboard.biz. SoundScan tracks U.S. music sales on a weekly basis, and their tracking week ends on Sunday.

If “Beyonce” sold 340,000 in its second week on the chart, then that would bring its cumulative sum (through Dec. 22) to at least 957,000. That number could be higher, once all of the data from the thousands of stores that report to SoundScan has been processed.

Also notable: if “Beyonce” sold at least 340,000 in its second week, that would mean it sold more than what the diva’s last album did in its first week. Beyonce’s previous album, “4,” debuted with 310,000 at No. 1, and then sold 115,000 in its second week (also at No. 1).

The new album was exclusively available through the iTunes store until late last week. After that, the physical CD version of the album started to reach brick-and-mortar retailers, and the download became available to other retailers.

“Beyonce’s” robust 340,000-plus second-week will not include CD sales from Target and Amazon.com, as the retailers opted not to stock the album. It is, however, available at all other major sellers of music, like Walmart, Kmart, Best Buy, Starbucks and so forth.”

  27. Lainey December 24, 2013

    I admire Beyonce, because she is a great performer. But how can people say she did it without promo? She’s been promotin het next album since Revel. Mrs. Carter Tour is one hell of a promotion. she’s been singing new songs, whether they made the cut or not. So everyone knew the album is coming, noone knew when. When she dropped the album as a surptise, everyone was quick to buy, because they expected amazing music, and since there was no direct promo, noone knew what the music was, which made it easier to sell more. If she did promo singles and videos, it might not have done as well. The reason 4 didn’t do well. Despite being an amazing album, her lead single made an impact on sales, because it was rubbish, despite having a catchy phrase = “Wh run the world”. So it is not fair saying she came out of the blue and surprised peple with an album. David Bowie did, not Beyonce.

  28. JARED (WHITE DUDE) December 24, 2013

    And…

    I have yet to find my wig and scalp cream!!!

    🙁

  29. Yolo December 24, 2013

    The slayage! I thought she was supposed to flop second week because she was ‘buying her albums’???

    Keep scalping Bey 😀

  30. Nicki Is queen other b****** take a seat> December 24, 2013

    @iconic cici
    wow b**** really? because these beyonce stans keep bringing up gaga! the first comment for goodness sake! kii

    like wtf how are you gonna sit up here getting mad at the haterz for coming at bey but your just gonna go at gaga? the hypocrisy? i cannot. You h*** need several rows of seats. and these “when will gaga?” remarks how about she already did 1.1M in one week! choke on it! and do not go saying they bey had no promo when she actually did.

  31. Yolo December 24, 2013

    But thats a Ciara stan not a Beyonce stan lol have several and read the name^^^^

  32. Nicki Is queen other b****** take a seat> December 24, 2013

    @YOLO
    don’t even try to get smart with me. there was a reason why i put a space between the damn comments the first half for that idiot and the second half for you idiots. i’m the one who should have several? b**** please.

  33. RoyalKev December 24, 2013

    Perfect debut week for such a FLAWLESS album! Well done B!

  34. Lou December 24, 2013

    Omg I just love it ch… Just accept the fact she is snatching wigs this era.

  35. Yolo December 24, 2013

    @Nicki So why are you talking about beyonce stans when no one mentioned Gaga? Stay pressed.

  36. Nicki Is queen other b****** take a seat> December 24, 2013

    OMG i cannot! @yolo are you blind? did your mind not completely comprehend my comment? did you miss the part about me talking about the very first comment of this post? well go check it asshole and while your at it check the second one! whose pressed? you bey stans are “winning” right? then whats with the cheap shots? i can’t deal.

  37. Yolo December 24, 2013

    @Nicki There is still no relevance for you bringing it back to Beyonce stans boo. Are you obsessed with Beyonce stans? Because we are not the only one to do that and again, I don’t see any Beyonce stans bringing up others. So again. Remain pressed.

  38. Yolo December 24, 2013

    You should know to differenciate one troll from all the stans and stop worrying about stans.

  39. Yeah i said It December 24, 2013

    Congratttssssss!

  40. Yeah i said It December 24, 2013

    I can’t wait for her to perform the songs live!!!!!!

  41. h2o December 24, 2013

    @ Nicki is flop

    Fact still remains that GaGa discounted her album to $1 to get 1.2m first week

    in other words,
    1 copy of “Beyonce” >>> 16–20 copies of “Born This Way”

    do the math :mrgreen:

    But good for you clinging to something from almost 3 years ago, seeing as “Artpop” is doing … Like she can’t even beat Failey Vyrus anymore

    I can’t

  42. Nicki Is queen other b****** take a seat> December 24, 2013

    Thats cici stan could be a bey stan too.. so i’d say what i’m saying is relevant. you’ve been dragged pretty bad. and tbh i’m done arguing with a delusional H**+ f*** like you kiiii!

  43. Yeah i said It December 24, 2013

    Lol you haters will be the first call 4 a flop because it underperformed, why didn’t she just buy some sales then? Your excuses are getting stale.

  44. Nicki Is queen other b****** take a seat> December 24, 2013

    H20 the reason i brought those sales was to silence the “when will gaga” comments

  45. Yolo December 24, 2013

    No stunt: Beyonce’s sneak attack on the music industry resets the rules

    By Teddy Riley

    December 23, 2013 — Updated 2020 GMT (0420 HKT)

    Beyonce performs on stage during “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” at Staples Center on December 3, in Los Angeles. She surprised fans by dropping her fifth LP, entitled “Beyonce,” exclusively on iTunes with no advance notice. Here is a look back at her life and career: Beyonce performs on stage during “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” at Staples Center on December 3, in Los Angeles. She surprised fans by dropping her fifth LP, entitled “Beyonce,” exclusively on iTunes with no advance notice. Here is a look back at her life and career:

    In 1998, Beyoncé was known simply as another member of Destiny’s Child, a four-member girl group who released a self-titled debut that year and had a breakthrough with the remix of their single “No, No, No, No.”

    Seen here with the final version of the group that put her on the map, Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé performs with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams for President-elect George W. Bush during a pre-inaugural event in Washington on January 19, 2001.

    When Beyoncé took the stage in Melbourne on April 29, 2002, she was just a year away from releasing her first solo album, “Dangerously In Love.”

    Back in November 2002, before they tied the knot, Jay-Z and Beyoncé fueled rumors that they were dating by becoming musical collaborators. Bey appeared on Jay-Z’s 2002 single, “03 Bonnie & Clyde,” and he appeared on her single “Crazy In Love” the following summer.

    A decade before she wowed viewers at the 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show, Bey jammed with Carlos Santana during the Super Bowl XXXVII Pregame Show in San Diego on January 26, 2003.

    Having stepped out on her own, Beyoncé presents the humanitarian award to Michael Jackson at the 2003 Radio Music Awards in Las Vegas on October 27, 2003.

    The singer is affectionately referred to as Queen Bey, not in the least because of her heralded work ethic, which is often put to good use on stage. Here, she performs during the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards in New York on August 28, 2003.

    Beyoncé was right back at the Super Bowl in 2004, as she performed the the national anthem to kick off Super Bowl XXXVIII on February 1 of that year.

    At the 46th Grammy Awards Show in February 2004, she joined Prince on stage to perform a medley of his hits. The singer left the ceremony with five Grammys in hand.

    Although her solo career had taken off by 2005, Beyoncé still performed with Destiny’s Child that year in Sydney, Australia on the heels of their 2004 album, “Destiny Fulfilled.”

    After releasing another best-seller with 2006’s “B’Day” and starring in “Dreamgirls” that same year, Beyoncé was readying to release a third solo album, “I Am … Sasha Fierce” when she took the stage at the 50th Grammy Awards Show on February 10, 2008. Somehow, she snuck in a secret marriage to Jay-Z that April.

    In this publicity image Beyonce Knowles is shown during the filming of her music video “Single Ladies (Put A Ring on It).”

    Just months after giving birth, Beyoncé was red carpet ready at the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on May 7, 2012.

    In 2011, Beyoncé stole the show at the MTV Video Music Awards when she walked the red carpet and, with the careful placement of her hands, revealed that she was expecting. The star and husband Jay welcomed Blue Ivy in January 2012.

    In this undated image released by Beyonce.com, Beyonce Knowles holds her daughter Blue Ivy in a recent family photo. A hand-written note accompanying the photos reads, “We welcome you to share our joy.”

    In April 2012, Bey stepped out for a stroll in New York with her daughter, 4 months old at the time.

    Earlier this year, Beyoncé found herself at the center a firestorm after it was revealed she used a “backup track” to sing the national anthem at the inauguration of President Barack Obama on January 21.

    After the inauguration dust-up, Beyoncé had something to prove when she held a news conference for her Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show on January 31. After belting out “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the singer paused and turned to the press and asked: “Any questions?”

    Kelly Rowland, Beyonce Knowles and Michelle Williams reunited as Destiny’s Child to perform during the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show on February 3, in New Orleans.

    In March, the singer reveled in her “Queen Bey” image with the song “Bow Down.”

    In early April, the singer and her husband were once again the subject of critical headlines when they took a trip to Cuba to celebrate their fifth anniversary.

    In early May, Beyoncé was the subject of pregnancy rumors as observers noted that her dress to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala conveniently covered her midsection. The speculation grew stronger after she had to cancel a concert due to exhaustion and dehydration. She denied that she was pregnant.

    STORY HIGHLIGHTS
    Music producer Teddy Riley says Beyonce surprise release method sets new standard
    The industry had used a traditional formula for new releases
    Riley: Beyonce, however, just proved she is not afraid to try new things

    Editor’s note: Teddy Riley is a Grammy Award-winning producer, composer, recording artist. He has produced artists from Whitney Houston to Michael Jackson, with whom he co-wrote hits “Remember the Time” and “Jam.” He created the new group BS2 Ft. Dave Hollister and just released their single “I Luv Her My Christmas Girl.”

    (CNN) — The game just changed. And Beyonce just changed it.

    The music industry has a track record knowing how to market the extremely prolific, gifted, inspiring, highly-credited icons. They’ve done it for years.

    There’s a formula: Put out a single on the radio first, then blanket the market with promotion, then schedule a big release party.

    Teddy Riley

    Sure, there are the legends who have created their own vine, their sonic signature sound,their own untraceable music landscapes — The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley and the “King of Pop,” Michael Jackson.

    For those icons, the rules — and techniques — are a bit different. But none of them tried what Mrs. Carter just pulled off.

    When Beyonce surprised the entire music industry this month by releasing her latest album, “Beyonce,” only on iTunes first — with no warning, no other promotion, no launch parties, no advance radio play, none of the traditional pre-sale retail hype — she showed how only a true star can break this industry glass ceiling. When it comes to business savvy, she just joined the lists of the greats.

    The album quickly became the No.1 seller on iTunes, moving more than 1 million copies worldwide in just its first week. And, at the same time, she also released 17 full-fledged music videos.

    Beyonce releases surprise album online
    This was no stunt. It was a smart and honest way to let the fans decide for themselves if they wanted the LP without major promotion and publicity. And, by announcing it first on Instagram to her millions of followers, it was a masterful nod to her true, loyal fans — and they have responded in kind.

    No one in the music industry could have pulled this off except Beyonce. Her global fans follow her 24/7 online, on the air and on social media. And, like Michael Jackson, her stardom keeps fans anticipating her next song, her next dance move, her next fashion statement and her next signature on the dotted line.

    And she reset the retail music business, too. It didn’t matter if retailers like Target — who just announced their plans — decided not to sell the LP that hit retail outlets Friday because it was released on iTunes first. Other outlets, such as Walmart (where Beyonce made a surprise appearance), have stepped up and will sell out before they can order their next shipment. Target’s loss, Walmart’s gain.

    Related: Beyonce’s surprise album: What’s the verdict?

    Beyonce is unique. She has shown that she is not afraid to try new things to reach greater heights, to change the game.

    I am curious and excited to see what she will do next. As I’ve noticed on iTunes, this is just Part 1.

  46. BEYONCE OUTSOLD YOUR FAVES! December 24, 2013

  54. AMMIE LEANN December 24, 2013

    beyonce this bayonce that,so much hype but she is not touching Taylor, Adele or Michael bubbles numbers.Her first album was in 2003 and it didn’t reach Diamond, while many others artists did. Destiny’s child never reach reach diamond as well.
    By reading the comments you may think she sold so much, but 4x platinum is her peak with DIL. How many Billboard Hot 100 Nº 1s she has. The standard are very low for beyonce.

  55. ROSEGOLD December 24, 2013

    Just accept the fact that your faves (Nicki, Gaga, Rihanna, Ciara, Mariah) have been slayed, and move on. Queen Bey is here to stay! Congrats girl!

  56. Mark111 December 24, 2013

    Yasssss King Bey!!! I love how she spent 37,000 dollars on Walmart gift cards and the fact Ciara sold that 37k the first week lol Bey shady.

    Anyways I’m still upset Standing on the Sun didn’t make the cut. I love that song lol

  58. Mark111 December 24, 2013

    Lol that even the monsters are ignoring ArtPoop, by bringing up an album that came out two years ago and not the one that came out last month. Let me state some facts…

    Beyonce is the highest selling digital album of all time. They say it’s we’d cause of Boring This Way, but how’s that when that week was the first time in history that Amazon out sold iTunes with 400 99 cents albums? That 600K was not just from iTunes, so that you make Beyonce the highest selling digital album on iTunes.

  59. Megan December 24, 2013

    Beyonce album lacks so much, waiting on Ashantis Braveheart, she always has great songs and substance with meaningful lyrics

  60. lisa December 24, 2013

  61. XXX December 24, 2013

    @Lisa the reviews disagree. She has universal accalim and the most critically acclaimed album by a pop artist this year. And no one is forcing anything down your throat if you don’t like it don’t click on the article.

  62. truth December 24, 2013

    How can people say beyonce just slayed mariah? Did beyonce just sell over 250 million albums. Did beyonce just ger 19th number one? NO? then she has not slayed Mariah Carey. She just joined mariah in the legends camp. Thats all. Love beyonce but stans are delusional

    Zania U mad Crack Brown will never see the 10 million sold chart and Hoeianna had to release close to 8 Albums to see that chart. #UR FAVS ARE LESSORS

  73. SLAY_HIVE December 24, 2013

    @Zania

    Bxtch BYEEEEEEEEE!!! DO YOU NOT SEE THE YEARS ON THAT OLD LIST??? THIS IS 2013 ALBUMS ARENT SELLING LIKE THAT ANYMORE, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ADELE’S LAST ALBUM!!!

    BEYONCE SLAYED YOUR FAVES THIS ERA!!!! DEAL B****!! LOOOOOOL

  74. TinaMinaj December 24, 2013

    Haters will ALWAYS come for Beyonce. Nothing new here. The FACT remains she SLAAAAYYYEEDD this go around and you will deal! There is nothing left to say/or do but to

    #RESPECTTHAT AND #BOWDOWNB******

  75. zania December 24, 2013

    @slave hive-Adele name is on that list, and she actually sold her albums, not bought her own itunes albums from her pepsi deal.

  76. zania December 24, 2013

    At least all his music,sales and art isn’t stolen and wasn’t bought to stay on top. She is a thief and she bought her itunes album. How is her singles doing? I will never respect her, because she is a thief in all areas. Only Women I respect is Whitney, Mariah, Adele, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, women who actually accomplished sales from honesty.

  77. zania December 24, 2013

    When this album sales more than her top album, then you can say she slayed. When she sell over 4 mill WW, than you can say she slayed. Taylor Swift and Gaga only been in the business half the time she been in music and still out sells her world wide, not to mention Rihanna.

  78. The Truth Will Set You Free December 24, 2013

    Is that why it has universal acclaim on Metacritic? Oh okay.

  79. SLAY_HIVE December 24, 2013

    Didn’t i say with the EXCEPTION of Adele?? Adele slayed everyone, which is not common in today’s industry!

    Where are your receipts of Beyonce buying her music or stealing? I’m sure you would have no problem finding one since you went out your way to post that irrelevant list!!

    Beyonce SLAYED!!!! Over 1 million in less than two weeks.. What other pop girl has done that with their recent release? Beyonce is 16+ years in. The huve will CELEBRATE AND BRAG all we want, especially with the hate we received this year!!

    Ill wait on that receipt BXTCH! kiii SEETHE

  80. AMMIE LEANN December 24, 2013

    DIL just 4x platinum in USA, her best selling album. She is not that big. Adele is Diamond already, Taylor best selling Fearless 6x platinum. Why cant bayonce reach those numbers, if she is the queen, the biggest artist ever.
    Aretha is the queen of soul, a legend for her voice, not for sales. There no excuse for bayonce, she is not even in the Top 50 seller of the soundscan era.

  81. SLAY_HIVE December 24, 2013

    Death @ you using two WHITE pop artist sells to come for Beyonce!! Gags is only five years in and FLOPPING HARD, NEXT! TAYLOR has young fans that support her, like when Britney slayed, she had the teenager audience that bought her albums…She has been in decline since Beyonce went solo! NEXT!!!!!

    BEYONCE 1MILLION+ IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS!!!

    NO PROMO
    NO #1SINGLE
    NO PERFORMANCE!
    #SLAYED

    YOU WILL MF DEAL!!!!!!! #LEGEND

  82. SLAY_HIVE December 24, 2013

    Beyonce sales are great!! Its huge enough to keep her relevant for 16+ years!!

    Death@ her giving Aretha a pass but Beyonce doesn’t get one!! HATER!! Kiii

    No matter how you dice it, beyonce is STILL slaying and breaking records

    The fastest album to sell on itunes ever!!! No promo, just released! Kiii i know why yall mad

  83. SLAY_HIVE December 24, 2013

    Oh and lastly Rihanna isn’t slaying s***! She has more #1 singles and albums than Beyonce, YET her American album sales are behind Beyonce’s!!! Lol

    Bxtch you tried it!!! Loool

  84. DIGGER BEY December 24, 2013

    I can’t @this Bum Crusty B**** @Ammie Lean…….H** can u understand anything?????? Nobody ever said anything about her being the biggest ever. She’s the biggest of this generation and ur favs will tell u so w****. And THE QUEEN’S DIL = 12 MILLION SOLD! BDAY = 7 MILLION SOLD! IASF = 8 MILLION SOLD! So who the hell is Taylor Swift?????

  85. ZANIA December 24, 2013

    Does it really matter, how much she sells in one week. What really matter is how much she will sell in one year with this album. Adele and Taylor Swift is coming out in 2014, I would like to see if she is the top selling female artist in 2014, not one week, because she bought her own itunes album. If she is slaying this weekend her WW album sales better be close to 2 million.

  86. AMMIE LEANN December 24, 2013

    Whit promo, with no promo, it doesn’t Mather the strategy bayonce uses, she wasn’t the best selling female last decade and this decade Adele has the tittle and it is too late to join the Diamond sellers club.

  87. DIGGER BEY December 24, 2013

    Zania H** u can Seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeth on while THE QUEEN sets her ass on ur favs!

  88. ZANIA December 24, 2013

    Beyonce 31 total records and album sales 118,000,000
    Rihanna 25 total records and album sales 150,000,000

  90. ZANIA December 24, 2013

    Beyonce should have 3 singles in the top 10 on itune, not one only at #10 if her album is selling so well on itunes. Like Taylor and other artist, when they released their albums they had at least 2 songs at the top of itune. That proves that she bought her album. Justin Timberlake at two songs at the top of the chart when he released his albums, people who wanted the album and people who wanted the single. I guess she needs to go buy up some of her singles so it can match her album sales.

  91. DIGGER BEY December 24, 2013

    Lies C*nt…….Media Traffic isn’t a reliable source. THE QUEEN’S DIL has sold over 12 million. BDAY has sold over 7 million. IASF has sold over 8 million! Add n 4 sales she’s sold over 32 million with BEYONCE sells. That’s five albums combined. Not 7 like Hoeianna, who hasn’t hit 30 million sold. B**** nobody don’t believe u and ur lies. Worry about when Crack Brown will see a platinum album. And when Hoeianna will ever see sells of 7 Million or more again. THE QUEEN 5TH ALBUM IS ALREADY ON RECORD TO OUTSELL R****’s last 4 albums. Hell ALL HER ALBUMS! #BOW DOWN B****

  92. DIGGER BEY December 24, 2013

    RECEIPTS H**? RECEIPTS H**??????? Where are the receipts that she bought her album. Why didn’t she buy 4?????????????? Why oh why didn’t she buy 4?????? Seeing how u h*** said it flopped. Why didn’t she buy 300k more copies??? B**** stay mad. Its so funny that since THE QUEEN has outsold ur favs. U wanna bring n artists that u don’t stan 4 lmaoooooooooooooo. #THE STRUGGLE

  93. DIGGER BEY December 24, 2013

    BEYONCE HAS SOLD MORE N 7 DAYS THAN UNAFLOP DID N 6 MONTHS! #THE FAWKIN SLAYAGE

  94. DIGGER BEY December 24, 2013

    Ammie Lean …….B**** u don’t know what’s n store for THE QUEEN’S ALBUM. Bum b**** she was the most certified and the most successful female artist of last decade. Britney just sold more albums. Who got the Millennium Award at Billboard Music Awards???? OK then dirty s***. And THE QUEEN IS STILL REIGNING THIS DECADE! #ASK ADELE

  95. zania December 24, 2013

    Just because she bought 1 million of her albums, doesn’t mean she will outsell Rihanna yearly sales. Look at Jayz and Drake and how they barely will sell 2 million and they had great two weeks sales.

  96. SLAY_HIVE December 24, 2013

    This slow h** is still saying Beyonce bought her albums, BUT STILL NO RECEIPT! Epitome of pressed! Loooool

    What was that list of Rihject albums suppose to prove??? How Beyonce is only 3million behind with LESS albums…She will easily surpass that this era!!! SEETHE

  97. AMMIE LEANN December 24, 2013

    Adele leads this decade, Im sorry its the way it is 10x platinum in USA its too much for bayonce, and better not bring Britney into this, she just sold soooooo much, its unfair even for beyonce to be compared.

  98. XXX December 24, 2013

    Zania girl until you can provide receipts your opinion is void no matter how many essays you write.

  99. XXX December 24, 2013

    Zania=Pressed

  100. XXX December 24, 2013

    Just bought my physical copy of Beyonce for my sister for Crimbo. Told you she wasn’t playing games this era! She just proved everyone wrong!!!

  101. DIGGER BEY December 24, 2013

    SLAY HIVE…..Hell yes that H** is slow as hell lmfao. I mean where is the proof she bought her album sales. We can say the samething about Hoeianna album sales. Even though shes still struggling to catch up with THE QUEEN with 7 albums lmaooooooo. And @Ammie lean Ur just dumb as that delusional h** @Zania. THE QUEEN has been dragggggggging Britney n sales since she became a solo artist. N Sync, BSB, Christina, Nelly, Em and a couple more artist was getting diamond certified albums 98, 99, 00, 01, 02, because sells. where high n the pop world. Britney wasn’t the only one seeing great album sales. What is she doing today??? What are all those artists doing today? B

  102. XXX December 24, 2013

    How does the fact she does not have a top 10 ‘prove’ she bought her album? Unlike Taylor and others there was no lead before the album release and she also has alllll the songs accompanied by videos its very unlikley a single would equate to that success, the marketing is all about the album not the single… Especially in these first few weeks while the album is still selling like fire.

    Its in: She did 383k SLAYYYYY!

  103. AMMIE LEANN December 24, 2013

    But if Britney wasnt the only one with diamons sales, why destinys child never went diamond, DIL just 4x platinum in 2003, why, WHY! if she is the greatest, well I know why but its a hard pill to swallow.

  104. DIGGER BEY December 24, 2013

    Besides Em and JT, nobody n that group are seeing sales like they did n the early 2000s. If THE QUEEN was solo during those years, she would of had diamond certified albums. DC came close with TWOTW. Still THE QUEEN is THE REIGNING SELLING QUEEN from 2000s till now. Where is Britney and Christina. No longevity. Save it b******. THE QUEEN IS ABOVE ALL! #SUCK IT H***

  105. XXX December 24, 2013

    Keep clinging to Diamond albums. Tina Turner does not have a Diamond album like many other legends do not. Its not a Diamond album that makes you a legend. Expand your knowledge of legends beyond just MJ, Whitney, Mariah etc.

  106. XXX December 24, 2013

    Beyonce has proved her longevity and impact now, this era is the cherry. You people are just gonna have to deal.

  107. DIGGER BEY December 24, 2013

    B**** just STFU @Ammie. Solo artists where mainly the ones scoring diamond certified albums. And still dumb h** DIL sold more than any Britney album during that present time and beyond. B**** u just stay pressed. @ XXX PLEASE TELL ME THOSE AREN’T THE NUMBERS! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. CAUSE IF SO THE B**** HAS REACH PLATINUM N 2 WEEKS! ITS FAWKIN OVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER FOR UR FAVS! THAT GUY FROM BILLBOARD WAS RIGHT ABOUT UR FAVS. I FEEL SORRY FOR THEM! #RIP BITCHESSSS

  108. AMMIE LEANN December 24, 2013

    When it comes to britney, it is impossible to mantain the level of succes that she had, do you realize how huge britney was, TWO Diamond albums back to back, the most web searched person ever existed What Im asking is if beyonce is the queen and the best seller, why she never reached that level of suscces, her singles never debuted at Nª 1 not even one or sold as much albums as other artist did during the same time.
    And how can christina not have longevity when say something is the most dowloaded song right now.

  109. XXX December 24, 2013

    But the fact is, Beyoncé CURRENTLY is STILL selling yet she came out the same time and never had Diamond sales. She has longevity and the most consistent sales out of her whole generation who came out in the late nineties (Britney, Xtina etc). Just because she did not have mammoth sales in the early 00s doesn’t take away from her longevity and being able to sell over the years and proved she can outsell the likes of Britney who suffered once her white teenage fans grew up and out of her.

  110. XXX December 24, 2013

    The only exception is Pink. Pink, Beyoncé and JT are the dark horses.

  111. XXX December 24, 2013

    @Digger Bey Chile yes! I just read it on HDD.

  112. AMMIE LEANN December 24, 2013

    But how can you be consistent, when ALL your singles flop like the 4 era, if you dont have a hit since 1999. Lets not get carried away, its a known fact that bayonce can flop just like everybody else.

  113. XXX December 24, 2013

    She can underperform but that does not change my point. She still has the most longevity sales wise. And she has 3 PLATINUM singles from 4, her most underperforming singles era. And death @ you switching lanes to singles sales now anyway. Don’t have a hit since 1999? ….. Say no to drugs.

  114. XXX December 24, 2013

    Sidenote: ‘ALL’ her singles, in your words, flopped yet she still outsold Femme Fatelle which had a hit. People throw the word flop around too easy anyway. To me a platinum selling single does not equal a flop just because it did not go top 10. A flop is… Let me not. I don’t want the lessor stan getting their feelings hurt.

  115. AMMIE LEANN December 24, 2013

    2009 no hit single since 2009, anyway now we call it “underperformance”, Run the world is considered a flop, a terrible flop for a song that was promoted so relentlessly. Video after video she tried but she didnt get a hit from 4.

  116. XXX December 24, 2013

    And yet 4 still outsold Femme, which justifies my point even more. Thank you.

  117. DIGGER BEY December 24, 2013

    Ammie I really believe ur dumber than a rock b****. It doesn’t matter she hasn’t had a debuting #1 single. She has had more #1s than Britney and Christina. And b**** her #1s total up to over 36 weeks. That’s n Billboard record books. Em still sells like he did bac n the 2000s. Britney ass just can’t hang b****. And every single from 4 didn’t flop. She went platinum. Did Britney or Christina go platinum with their last releases??? Save the excuses honey. BEYONCE IS THE REIGNING QUEEN!

  118. Special Delivery December 24, 2013

    She is now platinum! I will wait for more meltdowns. I’m so over people trying to bash her. She is winning just deal.
    This is not about Britney, her glory days ended like a decade ago.
    Stop using Britney old sales because you can’t use your favs.
    Baby One more Time sold like triple DIL yet who is using that s*** today. I hear more people using DIL. Bey is still here and going strong. You go girl.

  119. DIGGER BEY December 24, 2013

  120. AMMIE LEANN December 24, 2013

    Which proves my point, the standars are very low for bayonce. why someone who went Diamond 2 times back to back and sold sooooooooo much would be worried. But bayonce never reached that level of success so other artists accomplishments are dowmplayed in order to make her look better.

  121. XXX December 24, 2013

    Ammie Leann. Back to square one. See: Tina Turner comment. And the ‘currently’ comment. No point repeating.

    There are no ‘low’ standards about seeing sales of 1 million in 10 days after 16 years into your career…

  122. XXX December 24, 2013

    ‘so other artists accomplishments are dowmplayed in order to make her look better’

    Pot calling the kettle black much? Was your original comment not downplaying BEYONCES achievements by using other artists.

  123. XXX December 24, 2013

  125. AMMIE LEANN December 24, 2013

    After all is said and done, bayonce is not on the BEST SELLING ARTISTS list of the Soundscan era 1991 – 2013 Real sales, not even top40, Im sorry she didnt sold as much.

  127. XXX December 24, 2013

    @Ammie Leann I never said she was. It still does not change my point.

  128. Jessie December 24, 2013

    People are always trying to discredit her. Just have a f****** seat. You just look stupid because she is seriously winning now. I don’t even stan hard for her, more a casual fan but her naysayers are very dedicated, as dedicated as fans. She’s had endless praise this era from people who actually know what they are talking about, from the music quality, her decision to release it the way she did, and its success. There is seriously nothing to hate on.

    Oh Aimmieeeeeeeeeee. THE QUEEN has just went platinum n 10 DAYS. And the funny thing is…..i bet ur not an Adele or Taylor stan. Ur just bringing their names up, because THE QUEEN has snatched ur favs skulls! Taylor is a local b**** anyway. She isn’t fawkin with THE QUEEN’S Global sales. Especially this era. Sorry c*nt but u lose bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  134. nery December 25, 2013

    No only 17 free videos that cost the record label 15 mil. And yet she still didn’t break Taylor Swift ‘s record. 1.6 mil albums sold by the second week in the US. As NY magazine said Taylor Swift is Queen and all others are vying for second place.

  135. nery December 25, 2013

    17 free videos..let me see that probably cost the record label about $15mil. Still second best to Taylor Swift ‘s 1.6 mil albums sold by second week in the US.It just proves NY magazine November issue “Taylor’s queen and all others are 2nd best.

  136. nery December 25, 2013

    Taylor still has Beyonce beat by 2 mil. And yet Beyonce’s Queen. She needs another 1mil to catch up on her 5th solo album. TAYLOR’s 5 th album won’t come out to next Fall.

  137. nery December 25, 2013

    She still hasn’t beat Taylor Swift ‘s numbers whom NY Magazine named the biggest Pop star in their November issue.. Try again Bey….

    Child Taylor is n the kitty league when it comes to THE QUEEN. Taylor also had promotion, songs playing on the radio and huge deals marking the albums debut. Gurl bye. And like @XXX said, she’s also experiencing high sells due to her enormous teen following. This will end once they reach young adults. Remember Britney Spears. The Rave of The Music Industry is how THE QUEEN has changed it! With no promotion. No song debuting months n advance. No deals with the album. Nobody other than her circle knew about the album 24 hours before it dropped. Now has become the fastest selling album ever in Itunes history. She also broke someone’s record lmfaoooooo. #TAYLOR COULD NEVER?

    But taylor sold 9 mil. albums since 2010, Adele Diamond sales already. Its not just britney. So why bayonce struggles if she is the greatest. Why cant she sell as the others if she is so critically acclaimed,the best vocals, the best dancer, the best performer etc. As I said the answer is a hard pill to swallow.

    B**** ur still here commenting????? Lmfao U lost sweetie. THE QUEEN has won! Let me know when Taylor can produce 3 or more albums. That have sold over 7 million. And once again ur tired ass is throwing the best of everything. Nobody said she was the best ever. She’s the best of this generation though. And when have sells mean ur the best of everything b****??? MJ is behind Elvis and The Beatles n WW sales but he’s THE KING OF POP! So swallow that hard pill b****. #NICE PLAYING WITH U

    Diddy ” Beyonce name will be said along side Diana Ross, The Rolling Stones and etc one day. #TAYLOR WILL NEVER

    I wonder were that pressed Taylor fan coming for her second week sales went. Not so quick to rush to this post.

    I also find it HILARIOUS people cling to white people like Adele and Taylor and Britney because they can’t drag her with their favs. Beyonce is a black woman, still slaying after almost 20 years. Call me when any of them can do it
