  9. Yolo December 16, 2013

    Removes wig slowly and bows tf down.

  10. The Truth December 16, 2013

    And JT, Adele and Taylor Swift DID NOT have to make 17 music videos, because they dont need videos to sell their music

    Let me QUOTE ADELE,

    ” I make music for the EARS “

  11. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! December 16, 2013

    She’s basically gave 17 music videos away free to get this..

    No beyonce fan can really say anything against other artists sales..because no other artist has given away 17 music videos…

    Take for example.. Taylor swift and red.. if you got 16 music videos free on that.. Taylor swift would have nearly top 2 million in the opening week in the states, rather then 1.2 million.

  12. Lady Germagonorrhea Named Gaga December 16, 2013

    Congratulations Beyonce. You success have prove that you are in the same level of Mariah, Madonna, MJ, Aretha and Whitney.

    The rest can sit their lame asses down and bow. 😀

  13. IOWNTHEWORLD December 16, 2013

    THE PEOPLE CANNOT TAKE!!! #BEYSLAYS #BOWDOWN

  14. Yolo December 16, 2013

    And JT, Adele and Taylor did not drop their album WITHOUT a lead single, to ITunes alone or on a Friday.
    Motherfucking slayage.

    I ACTUALLY CAN’T…. LORD, MY POOR GAGA. BEYONCE HIT HER WITH A ‘THIS IS HOW YOU DO ARTPOP’……WHAT KIND OF 10YEAR ANNIVERSARY SLAY.
    THIS IS HOW ARTPOP WAS SUPPOSED TO TURN OUT.

  22. BEY LIKE KING BEY December 16, 2013

    Let’s celebrate this victory and not trash the stans of the flopping artists like the Ci-Squand, Starz and the Monsters. This is about celebrating a music milestone.

  23. Rellz December 16, 2013

    Before I comment on the post, I just want to get this off my damn chest! I am soooo sick and tired of the ignorant stan with these stan wars! Obviously yall don’t realize that these women ( Beyoncé, Rihanna, Ciara and Kelly Rowland and I added the other two cause yall talk trash about them too) are very different artists and have very different and uniqueness about them that makes them stand out from one another!! While yall on here trying to tear them down they uplift ( except Rihanna vs. Ciara even though Ciara stay positive and Rihanna sometime be shady towards her, which I wish they can squashed it and just influence positivity in Black Female Power got to work on that) each other!!! These women are living their dreams, Make our culture look beautiful, and accepted to other cultures that look past us for magazine covers, and beauty! I commend all of them on their achievements this year! Rihanna on have the most number one singles on billboard, Kelly on x-factor, Ciara on have a hot summer smash with Body party and getting engaged, and Beyoncé for her fifth studio album being number less than 3 hours!!!! I am an African American male and I love to see African American women in the music industry do positive things cause for many years females were look as not successful artists but more like s** objects! Yes Rihanna, Beyoncé, Ciara , and Kelly Rowland sing about their sexuality but so did Janet, SWV, Mary J Blige, Mariah Carey, TLC, Aaliyah, and etc. doesn’t make them a h** or anything they just playing the game like the fellas do ( R.Kelly, Trey Songz, Chris Brown)!!! It is annoying to see these stan wars on these blogs site! My motha always said if you not checking for someone then do not give him or her any attention! Now back to the post congrats to Beyonce on her amazing album!!!

  25. RICHIE_RICH December 16, 2013

    Wow this is how you SLAY………

  26. Rellz December 16, 2013

    @Truth b**** shut up and seethe. Until you can provide receipts for any of that wallow in your pressed anxiety that Beyoncé OFFICIALLY snatched and scalped for the GAWDS.

    I expected this from Artflop not Slayonce oh honey how the tables have turned.

  38. MRMinajesty December 16, 2013

    Obviously, some of y’all missed the point of Beyonce’s songs. Don’t know why you need to come for other pop divas and create competition instead of congratulating Bey. As she said, “It’s the soul that needs the surgery,” with some of y’all.

    Poor Gaga, she must feel so foolish and hopeless.

  41. RICHIE_RICH December 16, 2013

    What does it mean to be a woman, especially a woman of color, in America in the year 2013? We’re writing about that difficult, important, and rewarding question in myriad articles, discussing it across a multitude of social platforms, and seeing it debated in political forums both mainstream and microcosmic. It seems at best silly and at worst impossible for an album of pop music to attempt to parse out the answers to these questions, but that’s exactly the length of Beyoncé’s ambitious reach with her complicated, fascinating self-titled surprise album. That Beyoncé even begins to manage to answer that question is impressive. That the multimedia excursion does so with deft intelligence and memorable tunes means that Beyoncé should carve out a place among pop’s most important moments.

  42. SLAY_HIVE December 16, 2013

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

    I bet reality is finally dawning in on Gaga, how does she let herself get outsold by Bangerz.

    Wrapped in red is getting more buzz than Do what you want music video.

    So Gaga spends $25 million on promo, $3 million Artrave party in NY broadcasted by Vevo to millions, multiple twitter meltdowns and bragging about shipments only to have Bangerz sell more copies than you, even with multiple discounts.

  52. Flop Like Lady Caca December 16, 2013

    Monsters have been defeated and nobody talks about ARTFLOP anymore.

    That’s so nice for Beyonce to come and to break Monsters in pieces.

    Embarrassing to be Gaga’s fan these days. 🙁

    Gaga must feel hopeless and finished, she has not tweeted since this album dropped.

    How do you dress up in Halloween costumes and get outsold by Bangerz, even when you’re more talented.

  56. KingMac December 16, 2013

    I woke up like dis…..bow down b******

  57. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 16, 2013

    So Gaga is more talented and gets outsold by Bangerz, even after taking her clothes off like Beyonce and stl Bangerz is selling more copies at full price….I can’t.

  58. Brandys Starr December 16, 2013

    The album is fantastic she totally deserves it. You can tell she put a lot of thought into this album and the direction she wanted to take, and also listened. Congratulations Beyoncé.

  74. Kendall December 16, 2013

    Come on guys, if Beyoncé bought her s*** 4 would not be considered a ‘flop’ by you and she would have a Diamond album. You lose all sense of logic while hating. She is slaying, give her credit and move on.

  75. BLOW December 16, 2013

    Beyonce is such a KING!

  76. Flop Like Lady Caca December 16, 2013

    …without the 99cents discounted sales.
    Unlike Lady Gagarbage. 🙁

  77. Dark Horse December 16, 2013

    Gaga must be pissed getting crushed by someone who came out in the 90s and someone who is supposed to be a ‘singles artist’.

  78. BEYHIVE_ MINAJ December 16, 2013

    @Slay_Hive Mutt is obviously Troll Bynes and Mr.M chile

  79. Mark111 December 16, 2013

    She’s also the only artist to have her first 5 albums go #1. She was tied with DMX with 4, A Keys with 3.

  80. Flop Like Lady Caca December 16, 2013

    On the other news, ARTPOP remains in the discount rack !!!

    La la la….we could..we could..belong together…ARTFLUNG.

  85. Mark111 December 16, 2013

    “gaga will sell 500K her first week cause she’s an album seller.” “Gaga will have the biggest single this year cause she’s bigger than Katy.” – Gaga stans 250K and no #1’s this year.

  86. abi December 16, 2013

  91. xo December 16, 2013

    25 million in promo vs No Promo besides the fans

    260k – Artshit
    618k Slayonce

  92. Anon December 16, 2013

    Didn’t Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” sell more than this in the first week?

    You can’t say it was because of the Amazon price and say she cheated because Beyonce just cheated also with dropping something with no warning.

  93. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 16, 2013

    Remember when Born this Say dropped, and Rihanna outsold that with LOUD in the end. Never underestimate RIHANNA, you might be slaying but Rihanna will be there slaying with you.

    Not like Gaga who brags about 80K shipment to Canada but only sells 25K there and falls off, even with camping in Toronto.

  94. WHUT December 16, 2013

    EXUCUSE S*** B****?!!!!!!

    EXCUSEEEEEEE????? BUM I KNOW A SELF PURCHASED ALBUM WHEN I SEE ONE HOG!!! KIIIIIIIII!!!!!!

    @Anon you know a week consists of 7 days right? Beyoncé has done this after three days.

  98. Lydia December 16, 2013

    LOL this person with a cat in their avi is having a mental break down.

  99. Why Bother December 16, 2013

    Born This Way- a million seller album with an asterisk (99cents)

    😆 😆 😆

  100. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 16, 2013

    Do people even remember that Artpop is still on the shelves? The way things are going it is like Artpop wasnt even released.

    Honestly I think people would rather buy BangerZ than Artpop, which is what is happening.

  101. Bey Fan December 16, 2013

  102. seeSeeCC December 16, 2013

    I love and appreciate the hard work Beyonce puts in because it’s showing! I’ve always been a fan of hers. It’s just kinda ridiculous to see some of you waste your time lashing out at other fans. Let them talk! S***….Beyonce is doing great. 🙂

    @Slay Hive notice how he is saying the same s*** as Amanda bynes- their levels of delusion and stupidity both hit 20 on a scale of 1-10. I’m sure they are the same person

  117. MC!! December 16, 2013

    people already gave credit 25 post ago on TGJ when her album first dropped!! any way its no use talking to these stans on this site tbh this only blog site that keeps talking about beyonce constantly while Huffington post and daily mail only posted when her album dropped ans then MOVED ON!!

  118. Fran December 16, 2013

    She did that. Enough said.

  119. shapy December 16, 2013

    so she tops 104 countries and sold 800k , 600 in the states …just 200k in the rest …internationalpower#
    people should calm down and wait for the second week sales , you were talking the same about jay z with MCHG and look now…

  120. WHUT December 16, 2013

    DOG QUESTION, WHEN HE SELLS 66k IN THE 2ND WEEK WILL YOU BE HEREEEEE?!!!!

  121. BEYHIVE_ MINAJ December 16, 2013

    @Slay Hive if beyonce was really the one purchasing her albums,wouldn’t she have hit 1 mill by now?

  122. Vee December 16, 2013

    @MC well this is a blog that stans for beyonce if you don’t like it then YOU move on. TGJ run their blog however they want and it still gets people like you coming.

  123. KD December 16, 2013

  124. BEYHIVE_ MINAJ December 16, 2013

    @MC This is SAM’S blog,he can post whatever the hell he wants. This is a season of celebration for every bey stan from sea to shining sea. Same is a beyonce Stan. If you don’t like it,leave and come back in the fall of 2014 when the hype of part 2 has cooled down as well

  125. Yolo December 16, 2013

    I wonder where honey child pissed, Rated X, Blue Ivy Carter Rodrieguez and all the other regular Beyonce haters have been lately? Pretty quiet. Lovebird is the only one who has the nerve to show up and give credit.

  131. Yonceliqua December 16, 2013

    1st week sales without even having a FULL WEEK selling & KILLED the digital world.

    This is not about other artists this about a visual pt.1 album of superb artistry and a gamble paying off.

    GENIUS move.
    “Woke up, FLAWLESS”

    PROUD OF HER FOR THIS!!

    In all honesty I don’t love all the songs but majority of it I do and video. Super idea put together.

    Wonder what Part. 2 will bring?? Hope Ghost is a full song on there

  160. Grump December 16, 2013

    Not hating or anything but why do people keep saying no promotion, Beyoncé had a groundbreaking world tour, she is on every Pepsi billboard worldwide, she had h&m commercials.That is more than enough promotion. Stop acting like she went into her house and was silent for 2 years. She’s been all over the place the whole year but congrats to her. Great numbers.

  161. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 16, 2013

    OMG WHUT is killing me, I cannot deal with all that shade.

  162. SLAY_HIVE December 16, 2013

    BXTCH PLEASEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

    YOU ARE HIVE FIRST! I SEE YOU STANNING CHILE!!! KIIIIIIIIII YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    YOU STILL HAVE THAT PARTITION VIDEO ON REPEAT??????? 🙂

  163. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 16, 2013

    The tour wasnt exactly groundbreaking, she had 19 half empty shows, that’s not groundbreaking.

  164. JOHNVIDAL December 16, 2013

    Hmm dear Beyonce fans: congrats, this is being amazing.
    But don´t let it get out of hand. Why are a few of you acting as if Lady gaga didn´t do these numbers before? Or real true greats? All of them have done it. Congrats but stop. Also, it´s natural she broke an itunes record like this one: the album is available ONLY on itunes, all of you can´t buy it any other way. If those big 600,000 copies had been sold at different retailers in a normal way then she probably wouldn´t be breaking this particular record.
    Just defend your selves when needed and enjoy this fabulous moment. If anything, you have Rihanna or Katy Perry to shade on all fronts, commercially and talent wise.

  165. Julien December 16, 2013

  167. SLAY_HIVE December 16, 2013

    @grump

    She had no promo. She NEVER spoke about her album. She didn’t release a single to radio. She did no interviews. She didn’t have a release date for her album. She didn’t perform any of the songs on her tour!

    NO PROMO> EFFORTLESS SLAYAGE!!!!!!!! DEALLLLLLLLL 🙂

  168. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 16, 2013

    @boy toy

    Do you actually watch that stripper show partition video? Just the thought of a married woman with a child putting on a stripper show for the whole world to see rubs me off the wrong way.

  169. Yolo December 16, 2013

    @Johnvidal Gaga did it with discounts and heavy promo stfu.

    @Lovebird Bruce Springsteen is a Touring king and he had more empty seats than beyonce. Its about what you make in the end that counts. Her Tour is about to be one of the most successful by a black artist period.

  170. KING B December 16, 2013

    beyonce is out for blood there is no end to her wrath XO has been released on vevo it will be the main single like really beyonce? gives these h*** a break the slayage is strong even I can’t deal right i just can’t deal

  171. Bey-Minaj December 16, 2013

    @GRUMP do u even know what album promotion is? I swear Ri’s h***** done went to yall brains.

  172. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 16, 2013

  175. JOHNVIDAL December 16, 2013

    Dear @trollbird: how are you? Are you coping at all? 🙂

  176. Navy Commander December 16, 2013

    WOW! Great sales. Can’t wait to see next weeks tho

  177. The Boy Toy December 16, 2013

    @Lovebird I thought the video was hot. The Cierror stans were dragging it though. 😆

  178. rihanna is getting bigger and beyonce is decreasing. December 16, 2013

    Rih is number 1 on BB

  179. SHAWTY December 16, 2013

    YOOOOO…The fact that she just made $13 million in just THREE DAYS and only via iTunes is INSANELY ICONIC! Wow…these numbers will also go up once physical copies are released….sheesh! GONE HEAD MRS. CARTER!!!

  180. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 16, 2013

    The real question is why did the non talented Britney Jean sell more copies than Flop me back to retirement?

    Why is Bangerz selling more copies than Artpop?

  181. The Boy Toy December 16, 2013

    @Skank_Hive Kiii at “d****” b**** you would know all about that wouldn’t you??? 😉

  182. Lolz December 16, 2013

    @Slay hive Mutt is a pressed soul. One of the 6539876234678889225 lessors destroyed by the queen. Idk why he is tripping tho. Does he want us to feel sorry for him? He ain’t the first and certainly won’t be the last

  184. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 16, 2013

    Johnvidal I’m fantastic, I went to target today, found Bangerz on the best sellers rack and Artpop on the discount rack, why is that?

  185. SLAY_HIVE December 16, 2013

    “Do you actually watch that stripper show partition video?”

    kiii The fact that you actually watched it though!!! You are the biggest Beyonce hater, yet I’m sure your desk top crashed and burned when Beyonce released her album! looool

  190. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 16, 2013

    Rihanna, loved pour it up video, she has no example to set.

    Partition and Yonce videos, just the thought of a MOTHER and WIFE putting on a stripper show for the world to see made me uncomfortable, especially since Blue is at an impressionable age.

  191. JOHNVIDAL December 16, 2013

    @yolo
    NO! Gaga DID these numbers at full price and huge numbers worldwide too. Let´s not. The discount made her break the million mark (1,1 million) but she sold 700,000 copies full price in the USA alone.

    @the boy toy
    It´s not our fault Rihanna and the likes are clearly inferior on all fronts. Occasionally, when they are at their best commercial moments, it can seem to some of you like they aren´t. But they are, they are inferior. It will show in the long run. I´ve seen this before. You shading Mariah Carey??? Why? Shading a single released in her 24th year of career? Really? Call me when Rihanna can do something like this! Not even now at her peak she´s able too. Mariah and true greats been there done that, multiple times.

  192. rihanna is getting bigger and beyonce is decreasing. December 16, 2013

    THE 829 ARE HER WW tally. But, add the 617 and u get over 1.4 WW in a weekend. THAT IS VERY GOOD. SHE HAS OUSOLD BANGER, katy and artpop.

  193. Lolz December 16, 2013

    Whut is pressed lol.

  194. BEYHIVE_ MINAJ December 16, 2013

    “THAT IS VERY GOOD”

    WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR PREDICTIONS????????????? BEYONCE PROVED YOU WRONG AGAIN, EH??? LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL BYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  203. The Boy Toy December 16, 2013

    @JOHNVIDAL and Mariah couldn’t do it today. She wouldn’t even be able to sell out a world tour off of her legendary name. She couldn’t even do this in her PRIME! None of our faves could pull this off. I’m shading Mariah for the same reason you’re shading Rih. ALL of your posts mention Rih. Obsessed much? You know…kinda like how Mariah’s coo coo ass was obsessed with Eminem?? 😆

  204. JOHNVIDAL December 16, 2013

    LOL @trollbird doesn´t get it!!!
    Celine Dion is respected. Britney Spears isn´t. Celine Dion has sold almost double albums than Britney (and most of Britney´s were thanks to that teen boom nobody respects), Celine Dion just released an Englisg album without even caring and disappearing for 6 years between albums and still did better worldwide than Britney (yes 70,000 in the USA and Britney 100,000, but Celine smashed first week in Canada and was #3 in the UK, just to give two examples, while Britney debuted … #30 in the UK? I can´t remember). And last but not least Celine is doing better in Vegas in her 10th year there than Britney in her first!!! LOL How the hell do you have the nerve to shade real legends your faves will never top? After what you are suffering this week??? Can´t you learn from this experience?
    And I didn´t even go in with the talent…

    About Gaga and Milye: LOL Miley is only doing slightly better than Gaga despite being at her best moment commercially and Gaga at her worst. That says it all. In fact, having one of the biggest easy hits of the year should make her sell way more, but she isn´t. Milye had all the attention this year, and still can´t make it. Without gimmicks, she´ll do 300,000 copies in total next time, like her previous albums.

    Do you get it now @trollbird??? It´s hilarious seeing how you stan only for talentless girls. Sad thing is that they also get outshone commercially.

  205. The Boy Toy December 16, 2013

    @JOHNVIDAL btw hows (ch)ArtFlop doing sis? You know…the album with the real music and vocals? How’s that tour selling? I saw her on all fours in a bikini crawling under R.Kelly in the DWYW video. Too bad all the desperate, attention seeking antics in the world couldn’t sell that disaster of an album. You should apologize to the Interscope employees who were laid off because of her floppage in the middle of the holiday season. 🙁

    BJ 100K

    Bangerz selling more copies that Art pop
    Katy selling more copies than Artpop

  208. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 16, 2013

  212. SLAY_HIVE December 16, 2013

    THE WORLD DIDN’T EVEN KNOW IF THERE WOULD BE AN ALBUM A WEEK AGO FROM TODAY, NOW IT’S OUTSELLING EVERYONE WHO HAD ALBUMS AND SINGLES OUT!

    KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

    I DON’T WANNA HEAR ANOTHER SOUL MENTION ANYTHING ABOUT A CHART OR A #1 SINGLE KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

  213. The Truth December 16, 2013

    Who’s checking for Taylor Swift??? Grade school girls and deaf people. The name of the game is do what need be to make what needs to happen happen.

  214. JOHNVIDAL December 16, 2013

    @trollbird
    LOL Britney is not a songwriter. Neither is Celine. Stop it with your delusions. Now that you mention it, I´ve seen Celine credited as songwriter in a couple of songs. Does that make her one? NO. Britney was destroyed by my simple comparison. Now deal, like you have to deal with this Beyonce big moment.

  215. BEYHIVE_ MINAJ December 16, 2013

    @The boy toy lmao I love Mariah,but I had to laugh when eminem dragged her for filth on “the warning”

  216. SLAY_HIVE December 16, 2013

    LOL

    GAGS only sold 1.1. million due to her 99cent discount! She would have easily outsold gags and taylors #1’s IF she would have had a full week of sells!

    this is only three days!

    stop shading yourself hun!!

    when will Poptarts finally go gold????? Gags is a mega star right?? she sold 1 milliion in a week right???? kiiiiii

    Hun i’m not trying to hear what you’re saying. You were the one who said Beyonce would only sell 195k first week! remember???? kiiiiiiii

  225. The Boy Toy December 16, 2013

    @Johnvidal no babes…what I DON’T get is why Miss BlahGa couldn’t outsell Katy and Miley. You were the MAIN ONE calling them basic and talentless. Didn’t you say BlahGa was an “album seller”? Well what happened sis? Why aren’t those albums selling? $25m down the drain. Her old gimmicky ass better “break” her other hip for some sympathy sales. 😆

  226. rih rox((U Mad Bro?)) December 16, 2013

    By third week its going to drop. This s*** has no longevity. Most people that bought that on iTunes just wanted to see what the fuss was all about as that was the only outlet available.

    The people who got sucked into iTunes won’t be buying the physical album.

  227. BEYHIVE_ MINAJ December 16, 2013

    @The boy toy Lmfaooooo her and nick cannon. “your gonna ruin my career you better get one” I had to laugh at that for weeks. Notice how she didn’t say anything since it dropped? Lol glad someone finally clocked her diva attitude

  228. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 16, 2013

    I’ve checked Celine’s credits all through her 3847294738 English and French albums and she has not a single song writing credit, don’t lie.

    MICHEAL EARNED HIS #1’S AND HIS ALBUM SELLS MATCH!!! KIII

    HE DIDN’T RELEASE 6,0000 ALBUMS EVERY YEAR TO ACHIEVE THAT KIIIIIIIIIIII

    SPEAKING OF THE QUEEN’S TOUR, ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT THE SAME TOUR THAT OUTSOLD RIH’S ON AVERAGE

    87 DATES BEYONCE 145 MILL >>>> RIHJECT 89 STADIUM SHOWS 137 MILLL

    POOR DAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I KNOW WHY YOU SEETHING MUTT!! KIII

  231. rih rox((U Mad Bro?)) December 16, 2013

    Her music is not for the ears…it’s visual. This is going to flop because without the visuals its really boring.

  232. BEYHIVE_ MINAJ December 16, 2013

    Slay Hive,mutt is an insecure trick. Don’t bother with him anymore. I’m sure even rihanna would feel humiliated and ashamed knowing she has a psychopath like it stanning for her

  233. BEYHIVE_ MINAJ December 16, 2013

    Not it comparing King Michael to rihanna. Even rihanna would laugh at that. You can’t compare rihanna to the greatest entertainer of all time who has sold over a billion records worldwide.

  234. MuzikLuv December 16, 2013

    Not everyone has the resources to pull this off but the one’s that do DON’T maximise in this way as it’s a huge risk, plus depends on talent levels also.
    That’s the whole GREATNESS about this move from Beyonce, she had faith in it and now look at those numbers from just a FRIDAY release.

    Her tour money is clearly going into the craft (while some turn to drugs). The art comes first and song wise I feel there’s even more to come.
    GAME CHANGER! RESPECT!

  237. rih rox((U Mad Bro?)) December 16, 2013

    4lop went to number 1 but it’s still struggling to scan 3mill after 3 years since its debut…despite the re-release, selling singles for 69cents, doing revel, and world tour for it its still not selling. This is 4lop 2. She relied heavily on “visuals”. When she takes her songs to the radio then what? No visuals there…without the “visuals” its a snooze fest.

  238. Mya December 16, 2013

    Her best album. And I listen to it more without visuals. Well done chick!

  239. Mya December 16, 2013

    Rih Rox don’t be so insecure. This isn’t about going to #1 or 4 anymore. Her NUMBERS are slaying. She will probably overtake unapologetic. Plus she hasn’t released hard copies in store.

  240. rih rox((U Mad Bro?)) December 16, 2013

    Her “strategy” for the next will not work…. fool me once…..

  241. Mya December 16, 2013

    Now they’re saying it won’t have longevity. But remember, Beyonce is always proving you wrong.

  242. Navy Commander December 16, 2013

    Tbh I don’t see the longevity in this album.

    And let’s not pretend like she erased rihanna when the monster is still sitting pretty atop the charts Hun. No singles from this album will ever see #1 . Bookmark me.

  243. Lolz December 16, 2013

    RIHANNA FANS TALKING ABOUT AN ALBUM HAVING LONGEVITY?AHAHAHAH THIS JUST GETS BETTER!

  244. Lolz December 16, 2013

    Who cares if her single does not see #1. Beyonce is all about the ALBUM sales this time. She can give the Hot 100 to basic b****** who she tops with ease after 16 years.

  245. WHUT December 16, 2013

    MUPPET BETCHES THE LORD SHARES A RECORD WITH THE ONLY KING THIS INDUSTRY HAS EVER SEENNNNN!!!!!!!!!

  246. Navy Commander December 16, 2013

    Got this from another site. But true tea

    “Like I said already, giving all at once, all the songs, music videos and everything was obviously great idea, since no other female artist did it before, but after hype and buzz is over, what then? There aren’t hit worthy songs on there. She basically started and finished the era already.”

  247. BEYHIVE_ MINAJ December 16, 2013

    The ghost of MJ is shaking his head at this blasphemy

  248. DEM LESSORS December 16, 2013

    Beyoncé you’ve owned all your haters this time round. They can’t call you a flop or attack you about “4closure” any more. Bey is now the biggest artist in the world, bow down!!! Your my second fav after Britney. Pretty Hurts, Grown Woman & Yoncé are my jams in that order!

  249. Navy Commander December 16, 2013

    I see a massive decline after this week is up. Cause some people will go buy the hard copy cd

  250. Lolz December 16, 2013

    @Navy Commander you can be as sceptical as you want we’ll just have to wait and see. She proved you guys totally wrong once she can do it again.

  251. BEYHIVE_ MINAJ December 16, 2013

    @Dem Lessors Britney Jean is awesome. It’s a shame though. I wanted her and beyonce to show these gurls how it’s done

  252. Rosie December 16, 2013

    The Navy are just embarassing themselves right now. Breaking out every excuse possible. Mess.

  253. BrownSuga December 16, 2013

    The meltdown from some of these people in the comments section on TBJ “That Beyonce Juice.net” oopps mean TGJ is tooo much.

    Beyonce threw you ALL off and now all I see is reaching.
    She did a very good move and she caters to a few genres on here. Not all songs get my life but appreciate the vision

  254. Dray December 16, 2013

    What is this obsession with Rihanna? She didn’t even drop an album this year. She’s not bothered. This is the closest she’s come to the old DIL Bey. When you don’t like someone but they have you bumping their jams, that says a lot. I HATE Chris Brown but can’t deny he has bops. Again grats Bey and her Hive. . . . . .

  255. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 16, 2013

    @Slay_Hive & @JohnVidal why you guys keep wanting to claw off Rih’s wig? Half the Hive act like she slapped your momma and walked away. . I mean, the real tea is her peers like Gaga etc who dropped albums should be who you drag and not ICON. I just want to know why can’t the Hive celebrate without bringing Rih into the equation? I just can’t with yall. . . . . . but if it makes Yonce’s success feel better for yall by dragging Rih. . have at it. .she’s not bothered.

    we all know if she had released a single and performed on every show, she wouldnt get any closer to these numbers with that album. She was very smart cuz she knew ppl would want to see what her album sounded like after 1 year of waiting for some new material.

  262. Tyler December 16, 2013

    LOVE ME LIGHTS OUT!!!!!

  263. rih rox((U Mad Bro?)) December 16, 2013

    @yolo but I thought the tour was sold out? How come 19 shows were not? They used to claim rih did not sell out but only 4 shows were not.

    SN: so beyTHIEFce put her Album on iTunes so she can buy it herself? Much like Tamar eh? It all makes sense now. Let’s see how this plays out.

  264. AMMIE LEANN December 16, 2013

    Finally beyonce peaked,it’s been a long struggle but it happened. Sadly she will never reach diamond sales in usa, I don’t see this project getting there, it’s too late.

  265. DemHoes December 16, 2013

    Beyonce just checked mated any female in the industry.

    #No Cheesy/Corny Gimmicks
    #No Promo
    #No Awful teasers and month long campaigns
    #No Performances

    She shows a diverse range and visual art her best work to date. Every song is powerful. Although her fans where expecting a thumping dance number. She surprised everyone and created a mellow and strong set of songs. I am excited to see her work and nail every live performance. I will definitely be going to see her on tour in 2014.

    The drake song and video is an anthem my instant fav.

  266. cookie – Toni Braxton, Rihanna December 16, 2013

    Yesss,, finally Beyonce made an album with substance! LOL. Let’s thank Rihanna for the inspiritation shall we?!. She even went so far as using the same song title ‘drunk on (in) love.’ The similarities in the music videos is such a honor. Don’t worry,, we forgive you! But we have a surprise waiting for you in 2014…

  267. Dray December 16, 2013

    .. .and for the record, next year, yes Rih will drop a singles and let them dominate the charts and then drop her album cause her singles are that strong to stand alone

  268. cookie – Toni Braxton, Rihanna December 16, 2013

    Why isn’t the album on Amazon!??? No comment.

  269. Dray December 16, 2013

    . .Beyonce promo’ed all year long so make no mistake. . .she built up the anticipation which was good marketing but superbowl, etc had people waiting for new music so this was a gimmick all in itself so don’t make the mistake of thinking she didn’t promo. . . . .

  270. Yolo December 16, 2013

    @Rih Rox did you miss the point? Shes still outgrossing Rihanna. Which makes her the winner.

  271. Yolo December 16, 2013

    Do or say what you want but QUEEN BEYONCE has broken records with this album! The numbers speak for themselves!

    And let’s all remember this is ONLY FROM 3 DAYS!!! WHAT KINDA SLAYAGE???

    #RESPECTTHAT #BOWDOWNB******

  275. Dray December 16, 2013

    @Rosie . .Navy breaking out excuses for what? Trust me, from what I’ve seen most of the Navy was congratsing bey until some Hive felt they needed to pull Rih’s name and drag it. Why you guys do that–I will never understand, so we just respond in turn. . . . .why do you always mention Rih anyway? If she so irrelevant, then call out other more deserving popstars of the Hives vitriol. . . .

  276. h2o December 16, 2013

    This’s getting out of control

    828,773 worldwide in 72hrs?

    #1 in 108 countries 4 days later?

    Wtf is she made of

  277. Dray December 16, 2013

    @OhYeah. . .she’s working. .what do you want her to do? Do a round of interviews calling out Yonce’s name like Kelly Rowland. . . .it will never happen. Keep waiting. . .Rih is working and relaxing. She’s fine.

  278. ItsjustL December 16, 2013

    I love this album because she made each track an experience with the visuals, now these figures are deserving and she will continue to Slay because she has created a perfect piece of artistry. No point comparing her to your favorite becuase she IS YOUR FAVORITES FAVORITE artist!

  279. ZANIA December 16, 2013

    No fan base, Rihanna, Katy,Lady Gaga, Britney, should be upset, because they basically worked for their first week sales, they didn’t buy half of their own itunes. I know for a fact that she bought half of her albums off of itunes, to give the impression that she is selling off the charts, which is a marketing tool that Jayz uses. Originally Hitsdaily stated that her one day sales was around 200,000, than they change the amounts. Not one person will convince me that she didn’t buy some of her albums off itunes. If you look at all the comments on the mainstream blogs, most of them are negative. She bought her album sales like Jayz got company to buy 1 million albums because he regular sales bearly sold close to a a million, thanks to Justin Timberlake, Like I said Beyonce was going to put the hottest artist on her album to sale, Drake , Justing Timberlake, Miguel, she covered every genre, and she will get a couple of number one’s of the hot 100.

  280. Adriana December 16, 2013

    DAYYYYYYYYUM!!! You go Beyonce. No promo, just rumors and BOOM!!! 800,000 copies sold in 3 days. Sucks to be a Monster and sucks to be the artist collaborating with The Monster (talking bout Gaga and Rihanna). This is how you do it people. She is now officially on the level of MJ, Madonna and Janet. So Rihanna tied Michael Jackson…Big wow, she’ll ahve to do more than that to even be in the same sentence as the greats, even with 13 #1 singles, Beyonce still makes her look like an amature. No one can f*** with Beyonce, she the King of Pop!!!!

  281. Bey-Minaj December 16, 2013

  285. bravo!! December 16, 2013

    A good week for Beyonce. The writer of this article mention “Adele” which her cd sold over 5 million records in the u.s alone. With a great start will Beyonce sell more than adele in united states?

  291. Jeff December 16, 2013

    @Zania

    Funny how no one said s*** about Rihanna buying her own cd’s, fans on facebook & twitter. Even if this was so, big deal because they all have been doing this for years. Do you remember Drake made a video of himself & J. Cole buying up all J. Cole cd’s. Now the only one I believe don’t buy their own cd’s is Chris Brown because if he did his F.A.M.E. CD WOULD HAVE WENT PLATINUM BACK THEN AND NOW

  292. Sass December 16, 2013

    LOL @ the meltdown from the defeated and slayed haters. Just accept the fact that not only have you LOST, but you’ve also been OWNED. All the hysterical and inane rants are just you trying to cover up how HUMILIATED you are because of it. You said Bey was over, yet she’s been the talk of the entertainment world for the past 3 days and counting…breaking sales records, getting showered with adoration from else, being heralded as a genius!

    You mad? Upset? Seething? Got a headache? Stomach cramps? Ulcers? Diarrhea? Heh!

    It’s clear what you have to do now: you’ve got to kill yourself! I mean, how can you possibly live with the shame and angst of being on the LOSING side of all this? That would be too much for me! Just go ahead and pop the bottle and go to sleep. It’s the only way to get away from all this earthy praise BEYONCE is getting! 😆

  299. Go FIND SOMETHING U ENJOY December 16, 2013

  304. TrueMusicLover December 16, 2013

    So Beyonce’s album has managed to sell over 800k in 3 days on her brand alone. Just the name Beyonce! Adele went diamond in the US based alone on actual music praise. And basic band wagoners who felt guilty for sleeping on Adele in the first place. Lmfao I mean after listening to Beyonce’s amazingly underwhelming album I’ve only found 3 songs that Im kind of partial to. Songs which will soon be forgotten once the next hottest club banger is released. Which is literally every 15 minutes. This is a great example of for the kiddies!

  309. ZIGGY STARDUST December 17, 2013

    While these are impressive numbers for Beyonce, it’s amazing that she didn’t do more. People have called this album, “monumental”, “a masterpiece”, “epic”, etc. With such descriptions as these, Beyonce should have at least moved 1 million units. Sunday was the last day for her first week sales to get counted. Which is why she should have put the album out on Tuesday as opposed to Friday. By doing it on Friday, it only gave her a few days to work with. If she had released it on Tuesday, she would have easily sold 1 million units. Other than that, she still did pretty good.

  310. lesotho finnest December 17, 2013

    Hopefully it will sale well because the production budget is so expensive! 17 videos will cost 17 million (in average). Plus 14 songs produced cost abt 7 mil. It’s a lot

    the salvation army is so pressed right now. What does rihanna becoming the face of a fashion house have anything to do with beyonce dominating the album charts right now? its obvious that the salvation army is threatened by their constant need to give their FALSE predictions of the outcome of this album. Beyonce continues to make fools out of all of you because at the end of the day she continues to change the game and outdue s***-hanna in every way.

    DEAD @ the navy saying this album doesnt have longevity. according to the same pack of idiot b******, “4” didnt have longevity yet the tour for the album is outgrossing the diamonds tour. Your theories and predictions just keep getting shitted on by the queen. stay pressed. maybe if the salvation army would scrap their coins together and start buying albums they could brag like the hive.

    I love Beyonce too but Rihanna is not “DEAD” as everyone seems to think.. Rihanna has the Number 1 song on Billboard’s Hot 100 right now.She has 13 no1’s the youngest artist ever with that many. Beyonce has 7 solo no 1’s. Give Rihanna her props too.

    for free? she sould the album for 15 EUR… it’s not like she sold that for 8 EUR….

    That’s good and all congrats Bey. But when will she ever sell 1 mill in one week though? She has the potential in the future I would say.

    She sold over 1 million records world wide in under a week, 800k over the 1st weekend (3/4days) and is close to selling 1 million in just the US alone. So she didn’t only sell a milli in a week with no promo or lead single, she did it in under a week and only via iTunes.
