Beyonce Breaks African-American Chart Record With New Album

Published: Wednesday 8th Jan 2014 by David

1 million digital copies.

For fans of ‘Carmen: A Hip Hopera’ performer Beyonce, the above figure has become a welcome sight- moved by the entertainer’s latest album in record breaking time last month.

What these fans may not know however, is how this sales figure has solidified her status as one of the world’s leading African-American entertainers, breaking a record she’s set to be celebrated for for eternity.

Details below…

With over 1 million units sold in the US alone, Beyonce now becomes the first and only African-American to sell this many units digitally with a single album.

In adding to the joy this record will no doubt bring the star, the three weeks the LP spent atop the Billboard 200 also make her the first African-American entertainer to do since Lil Wayne did the same with 2008’s ‘The Carter III.’

Quite interestingly, 2013 marked the first time a husband and wife have placed albums in a Year-End Top Ten, with Jay Z‘s ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ coming in at #10, while the aforementioned ‘Beyonce’ occupies #8.

Thanks to its sales, ‘Beyonce’ marks the sixth Beyonce album to hold a spot in a Year-End Top Ten, a feat achieved when her work with Destiny’s Child is thrown into the sales mix, doing so as her tell-all ‘Life Is But a Dream‘ DVD returns to #1 on the Top Music Videos tally.

So, let us know…

What do you make of Beyonce’s latest record?

    BOOP!

  2. mya January 8, 2014

    The headline should read “The fastest album to sell 1 million digital copies in the US” What you have limits it.

  3. JazThatBoi January 8, 2014

    The album is solid. A little something for everybody. I wonder how do u top this album tho. Setting the mark high for herself!! good thing tho

  4. JOHNVIDAL January 8, 2014

    Seriously! She´s doing amazing.
    But if you want to constantly invent records we can do that with everybody and make even Ciara´s chart history look good 🙂
    If there´s one African American who broke TRUE records, the big ones, that is Whitney Houston. First black female to be an international sensation of that caliber, biggest debut album ever in the USA by ANY artist (black or white, female or male, and in the 80s), first woman to debut at #1 in USA album chart (black or white), diamond albums, biggest era for a female (black or white) in history (17xplatinum in the USA), etc, etc. I mean, come on, that´s what I call records.
    For these girls like Beyonce, Rihanna and the rest who are constantly breaking “records” in many a blogger´s opinion, they should be doing at least Adele numbers or something. That´s when you start to break real records.

    Congrats Beyonce anyway, a year ago almost nobody expected she could sell this good again. Sweet moment for her fans too.

  5. Rosie January 8, 2014

    “‘Carmen: A Hip Hopera’ performer Beyonce”
    A mess.

    But congrats Bey! I can’t at her breaking all types of records so fast.

  6. Quan January 8, 2014

    Good Job, beyonce! I wonder has any white artists achieved this?

  7. TinaMinaj January 8, 2014

    Loool! The haters just can’t seem to catch a break! Beyoncé is SLAYING and you will deal!! The records speak for themselves!!

  8. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 8, 2014

    Congratulations.

    That’s all I have to say. 🙂

  9. idgi January 8, 2014

    WOW! That’s amazing, congrats B!!

  10. Lovebird January 8, 2014

    And she only had to dodge the competition to do it.

  11. Lovebird January 8, 2014

    She dodged Katy, Miley, Gaga, Lorde and released in BOB week. She had the advantage of 3 weeks with NO new releases.

  12. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 8, 2014

    @Lovebird:

    Keep It Moving Buddy, Life is but a Competition.

  13. Quan January 8, 2014

    @Lovebird never looked at it that way.

  14. ***flawless bitchesssss January 8, 2014

    *Usually I’m humble, right now I don’t choose, you can leave with me, or you can have the BLUES*

    YASSSSSSSS BEY

  15. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    Yeah… Since no one could buy individual tracks when it initially came out. Let’s talk when this sells 1 million physically.

  16. Lovebird January 8, 2014

    This album Sold based on manufactured hype, timing and dodging of the competition.

  17. Kyle January 8, 2014

    Yes the slayage continues and they will continue to seethe.

  18. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    HISTORY! LEGEND!

    This is how you make history OUTSIDE of a single chart! 😉

    LEGENDONCE!

  19. just sayin’ January 8, 2014

    Why does tgj seem to post the same stories about beyonce. Scroll down two stories before this and we will read similar news.not hating just saying it seems redundant to keep posting the same story with different headings. Lol

  20. Lovebird January 8, 2014

    Congrats Beyonce for smartly manipulating your way to the top by dodging the competition. We know you’re afraid of Miley, Katy, Gaga and Rihanna. Even Lorde had you scared.

  21. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    Her album sales are weak. She’s one of those people that sell well initially but struggle in subsequent weeks. She sold 310k last week and only sold 130k (hive said she’d do 250k btw) week. What is that like a 50% sales decrease?

  22. Yazmine January 8, 2014

    Congratulations Beyonce, she is doing brilliantly. I am proud of her.

  23. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    An album released out of the blue is sold on hype??! Oh wow! I wonder could rihanna, katy or Gaga do the same, and get these sales?? NO LOOOOL

    Still selling more than your faves in the second and third week with their OVER HYPED album promo and generic singles!

    EXCUSES EXCUSES

  24. The Great Lacefronce. January 8, 2014

    No one cares about this local album

    It has peaked and will continue to tumble from here on out

    And lol @ her flopping singles even with the 17 free music videos to accompany FLOP FLOP 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  25. Rosie January 8, 2014

    “LOL why didn’t she release on Katy/Miley/Lorde/Gaga/my mom week? That’s because she’s so SCARED!!!1”
    “LOL when will it sell 1 million PHYSICAL copies?¿”

    The excuses from the haters keep on coming in. Only in their delusional little minds is Beyoncé flopping in any way.

  26. Yazmine January 8, 2014

    And she still has solid sales in January in her fourth week.
    She was supposed to flop after the first right?

  27. Rosie January 8, 2014

    Borde ain’t scaring no one. If y’all think Beyoncé is local…LOL, look at Pure Heroine’s worldwide sales.

  28. Lovebird January 8, 2014

    So why didn’t she release in Lorde week? Even Lana is scared of Lorde.

  29. really??? January 8, 2014

    lol

  30. Revolution January 8, 2014

    OMG just GIVE UP. Her haters seriously go as hard as fans! The struggle excuses! She is slaying right now just DEAL WITH IT! And its the SAME few people. The negativity aint cute.

  31. Lovebird January 8, 2014

    Pure H, will hit platinum before BTD.

  32. The Great Lacefronce. January 8, 2014

    Bleachonce has sold 500k ww lol 🙂 🙂

  33. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    “She’s one of those people that sell well initially but struggle in subsequent weeks.”

    DEATHHH I remember when she wasn’t going to scan GOLD?? Now she starts off well and struggles! kiii

    Yasss for the FAILED pyschics! kiiii

  34. Revolution January 8, 2014

    Let me get this straight. All the pop girls had the OWN week of release but its an issue when Beyonce does it. Keep grasping at straws.

  35. Lovebird January 8, 2014

    The other pop girls had weeks with other full album releases, Beyonce only had BOB.

  36. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    I never said she won’t scan gold. I said she’ll FAIL to sell 5 million like the rest of her albums. Death at DIL stalling at 4.9 million. She can’t sell albums and she can’t sell singles.

  37. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    She’ll never be the best selling female of Soundscan and her name will remain absent from the best selling artists list. Sorry but you’ll have to deal.

  38. Revolution January 8, 2014

    @lovebird and? Were the people who bought her album forced?

  39. Emeral January 8, 2014

    Congrats, some things are better left unsaid haters. Just give credit and move along.

  40. Rosie January 8, 2014

    Death at Lana being scared of a basic ass Tumblr-wannabe local ass try-hard 2 hit wonder. Born To Die is actually outcharting Pure Localness in almost every country in continental Europe and beyond and is still selling. Meanwhile Borde is selling worse than Lana. Lana was nearing 2 million the point where Borde is now. Also ~80% of Pure Localness’ sales come from the US, Australia, and New Zealand.
    Let me know when Borde sells 5 million with no US support.

  41. Emeral January 8, 2014

    So happy for her the only female who managed to keep up with the men this era!

  42. Rihanna’s Face January 8, 2014

    I COULD NEVER!

    LOOK @ MY FACE. CAN’T YOU TELL I’M THE REAL PERSON THAT BLEACHES?

  43. Hivy January 8, 2014

    Congrats King B. 🙂

  44. TinaMinaj January 8, 2014

    Slariah and Lovebird stay perched in a Beyoncé post LOL. For someone you hate you really devote a lot of time to her. Anyway, more fans for Beyoncé! Lol

  45. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    “She’ll never be the best selling female of Soundscan and her name will remain absent from the best selling artists list. Sorry but you’ll have to deal.”

    DEAL?? LOL I’m sorry but the only person that seems to be bothered by those ANCIENT accolades, is YOU! SMH

    Beyonce is breaking records from this decade. SEETHE

  46. AMMIE LEANN January 8, 2014

    The first album with 17 free videos, she is not even hiding the thirst. Saddly she will never reach Taylor or Adele’s numbers in the US and It’s true when they say that Rihanna is taking over, she is really the biggest star in the world.

  47. Marley January 8, 2014

    Death @ Rihannas face.

    It never ceases to amaze me how far people will go to discredit this woman.

  48. Rihanna’s Face January 8, 2014

    How many numba 1 singles will i have to sing before any of my albums accomplish anything?

  49. TinaMinaj January 8, 2014

    If another artist was getting the acclaim my fave once possessed, and my fave turned to a has been, I would probably be having a meltdown like Slariah so I understand lol. Mariah is DONE!!

  50. TinaMinaj January 8, 2014

    “BEYONCÉ” is the ninth album to sell 1 million digital copies. It’s the first by an African American or R&B artist.

    LET THAT SINK IN!!

  51. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    “never said she won’t scan gold. I said she’ll FAIL to sell 5 million like the rest of her albums”

    No hun. I’m talking about a few months before the album was released. Did you forget??

    You said it would flop remember? Hold on i’ll post a receipt 😉

  52. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    Lol @ hive celebrating her being best selling female of 2013. Seriously though?? Try being best selling of an entire decade. Death at the gurls reaching with these weak statistics. I thought bey was King. I expected more slayage, not those weak album sales and flop singles. Smh

  53. Marley January 8, 2014

    Slayriah whats your problem? Like why do you care so much?

  54. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    If Mariah is done then what happened to Nicki? She must have died. All these collars and she still can’t go #1 on the hot 100. Lol @ the Re-up still collecting dust.

  55. Lovebird January 8, 2014

    You’re dissing Lorde with Lana when Lorde is performing at the Grammy’s, Lana is not.

    Lorde will more likely win a Grammy before Lana.

  56. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    I did say it would flop (and it is) but I don’t remember saying it wouldn’t go gold. If I was gonna be that shady I would’ve said something like it wouldn’t go copper. And death @ you running back to old posts to try and bring receipts. The desperation is real.

  57. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    @Marley
    The real question should be What is YOUR problem? Don’t read my comments. Just keep scrolling child.

  58. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    This girl is so bothered by Beyonce! It’s a shame!

    Honey we know Mooriah slayed in her day, but you WILL NOT bring your pressed ass in here and say Beyonce is NOT slaying, when you bandwagon with the NAVY and their WEAK statistics !

    *slaps you* 😀

  59. Kendall January 8, 2014

    She is doing so good wow. Good for her! No other black female out now can do what she is doing now. We’ll done Bey.

  60. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    Fact: mariah sold more albums in the 2000s than Beyonce.

  61. Unbiased January 8, 2014

    @John I see you are trying to throw shade. I love and adore Whitney, but she came from a generation that didn’t have pirating and album leaks. Stop comparing Beyonce to Adele, two different audiences. Also, she is just the first black artist, she has the record of selling 1 million digital copies the fastest, which was previously held by Adele. How can you say the records she break aren’t real? Also, The MSCWT is the highest grossing tour by a black female artist, and it’s not finished yet. Don’t downplay this woman’s accomplishments.

  62. Rosie January 8, 2014

    Still doesn’t change the fact that Lana is more global and a better album seller than Borde.
    No one outside of America and Oceania uses her. She’s flopping in all of Europe. Like the UK. You would think they would stan hard for Borde since Royals went #1 there and they love flash-in-the-pan b****** like Jessie J but nope, her album debuted at #3 after all that hype and is plummeting down their albums chart.

  63. Marley January 8, 2014

    @Slayriah I don’t have a problem. I just find it odd that a lamb would harbour this much animosity for no reason. Which is why I’m asking.

  64. RICHIE_RICH January 8, 2014

    lovebird is having that breakdown chile. I thought Rihanna was the digtal Queen?

  65. DIGGER BEY January 8, 2014

    LMAO That MooMoo stan checks for THE QUEEN more than her lesser fav bwahahahahahaha. At least ur a smart b**** though. Cause The Public sure isn’t check for MooMoo and neither is u lmaooooooo. And MooMoo will not see any more gold or platinum albums. THE QUEEN has reduced that Moose To A LifeTime Of Flops lmao. #SORRY FLOPIAH

  66. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    And from 2003-2014 Beyonce has sold more albums than Mariah from 2003-2014 ;)!

    Mooriah is from a different generation!! Did you think it was still 2001? kii

  67. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    “The Public sure isn’t checking for MooMoo and neither is u lmaooooooo.”

    OKAY! LOOOOOOOOL

  68. MC!! January 8, 2014

    yes slayriah!!!! I feel like the.only reason its still selling beacause no one hasn’t released anything yet its literally the only new album that’s out now

  69. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    From 2000 – 2010… Mariah sold more albums (I’m not including 90s albums)

  70. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    “lovebird is having that breakdown chile. I thought Rihanna was the digtal Queen?”

    Chile she is the SINGLES digital Queen! Kii

    Beyonce dealing with ALBUMS, that she released overnight!

    LMAO

  71. Mezzo January 8, 2014

    Shouldn’t Riri the digital queen be doing this first? Proof that her success is comprised from singles.

  72. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    How is it gonna say in not checking for Mariah when 47% of the songs on my phone is MARIAH! Lol u tried. I already get Mariah news from Mariah fan sites. TGJ is slow on Mariah news.

  73. DIGGER BEY January 8, 2014

    Um…If THE QUEEN was scared of The Lesser b******. Why didn’t she wait till 2014 to drop???? Lmfao @LoveShit is so damn pathetic and delusional. You were the same dumb bytch saying she was scared to drop n November and December. So now that she dropped BEYONCE n December and OUTSOLD the lessers. Your simply ass can’t deal bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah

  74. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    You can’t even be fair. You’re steady trying to pull out receipts BEFORE Beyonce was a solo artist! SHAME LOL

    Beyonce 2003-PRESENT

    Mariah 1967-2005 She’s Done! She had a nice run tho 😉

  75. Marley January 8, 2014

    That makes no sense whatsoever, the fact that not many people have released does not automatically mean you will go and buy Beyonces $16 album to compensate. Seriously just stop !!!

  76. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    Lol it is so slow. FROM 2000-2010 MARIAH SOLD MORE ALBUMS THAN BEYONCE!

  77. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    “TGJ is slow on Mariah news.”

    Maybe they, just like the GP, doesn’t care?

  78. Unbiased January 8, 2014

    @Lovebird Bye! I know you aren’t talking about dodging competition, when a certain someone released every November. Don’t be mad Bey came out of nowhere and snatched all of them, she gave them a head start and they still couldn’t beat her to the finish line! However, Katy is still doing very well.

  79. DIGGER BEY January 8, 2014

    SLAY HIVE….THE QUEEN HAS SOLD MORE ALBUMS MOOMOO SINCE HER DEBUT AS A SOLO ARTIST. #DEAD HOG N THE ROAD

  80. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    They are slow on everybody’s news except Beyonce. Even people that are far more relevant than she is. U tried

  81. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    No b**** you are slow. How are you going to count years that Beyonce wasn’t even an artist. You are so desperate to discredit Beyonce, it’s a shame!

    Like i said Beyonce 2003- PRESENTTTTTTT
    Mooriah 1889-2005 R.I.P.

  82. Lovebird January 8, 2014

    And yet Lorde has Grammy noms, Lana does not.

  83. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 8, 2014

    Rihanna is the Best Selling Digital Artist of all Time.

    Best Selling … Digital … Artist… of all Time.

    i see no Specifications.

    You know how Rihanna OWNS the Digital Scene and Let’s not go There, I know it, YOU know it and we all know it.

    That’s a fact. 😀

    Now Go Enjoy your fav’s good News and Stop going back and forth.

  84. Lovebird January 8, 2014

    I only talk to people who know what sells and sales are.

  85. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    “They are slow on everybody’s news except Beyonce. Even people that are far more relevant than she is. U tried”

    DEATHHH who is more relevant than Beyonce at this moment b****??

    I’m not talking about album sales( your favorite subject)

    I’m talking about STAR POWER! Hating ass b****

  86. RICHIE_RICH January 8, 2014

    Damn all of these excuess. Either congrat or move TFO

  87. Lovebird January 8, 2014

    Lana is supposed to be global and yet Pollstar skipped her name?

    Why is Britney’s Vegas show estimated to make more money than paradise tour?

  88. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    Does the Grammys even know who Lana is though? After all, it is an American show. She has no relevance there.

  89. LOL January 8, 2014

    Mary J. Blige breaks a record with every single albums of hers, even with her Christmas album she did something major yet it’s never posted on here

  90. Lydia January 8, 2014

    @Richie_Rich lol. Singles Queen. The struggle that you have that title but have not achieved that feat yet with all those albums and the ‘fading starlet’ has achieved it before you.

  91. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    @lovebird

  92. RICHIE_RICH January 8, 2014

    If that’s the case Why did Beyonce just break this record? …..Maybe for single but not ALBUMS.

  93. Rosie January 8, 2014

    BYE @ that compete and utter lie. Both Paradise and Young and Beautiful are nominated this year.
    Please do your research before you try to “drag.” Maybe you’ll learn a few facts, such as “Lorde is local.”

  94. DIGGER BEY January 8, 2014

    FAKE BYTCH ALERT! FAKE BYTCH ALERT! FAKE BYTCH ALERT! @The MooMoo stan….Bytch Stop It. Your delusional ass leave over 20 to 30 comments on THE QUEEN posts.The last two MooMoo posts, ur retarted dumbass barely left one or two comments. #BYE FAKE BYTCH

  95. SLAY_HIVE January 8, 2014

    “I only talk to people who know what sells and sales are”

    Grape at the end of the day RIHANNA HAS SOLD MILLIONS WITH HITS.

  98. Rosie January 8, 2014

    Kii b****. Keep being up Pollstar and other irrelevant s*** such as S****** to bring down Lana’s receipts when Lana only has 4 reported tour dates.
    Speaking of S******, has it’s album sold 500K worldwide yet?

  99. DIGGER BEY January 8, 2014

    And if ur Slow Ass is getting news for MooMoo fansites. Why are u here and checking for THE QUEEN???? Bytch u fake ass MooMoo dried up titties.

  100. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    @SLAY

    I’m not just talking about right now. TGJ has been like this even before Beyonce released this flop album. And Rihanna, Katy, Justin Bieber, etc are some of who are more relevant than your fave… Remember you said star power.. Not sales
    I guess Taylor Swift as well

  101. RICHIE_RICH January 8, 2014

    Y’all do know Albums>>>>>>>singles 15.99>>>>>>1.29. You can have you’re single hun!!!!!!

  102. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 8, 2014

    @Richie_Rich:

    Rihanna is The best Selling Overall, Singles AND albums.

    It is still considerably New for Beyonce when it comes to the Digital Era, and her Feat is in the albums Department, not Overall, See The Difference now?

    Congratulations nonetheless, That is a receipt I will respect as a navy, beyonce or anyone else, i will respect it, The Hive can use it, I ain’t mad.

  103. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    @Digger Bey
    I come to this site to get news on other artists that I like such as Rihanna.

  104. Rihanna takes over 2014 January 8, 2014

    Rihanna is an washed up h***** w****. Her next album will flop. She will barely go gold. Its almost over for The W**** of The World.

  105. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    Mariah has sold 100 million records in the US alone. More than Beyonce has sold worldwide. The hive should have respect for me and my fave.

  106. RICHIE_RICH January 8, 2014

    I understood from the jump. The shade was ….nevermind@pop lol

  107. mya January 8, 2014

    Over 2.2 million worldwide in 4 weeks. *giggles*

  108. Dezi January 8, 2014

    @ – Kendall. A lot of black female artists are not selling themselves out. They rather keep their clothes on, stay true to themselves and push out quality music. That’s why i love janelle monae and jill scott true talents.

  109. DIGGER BEY January 8, 2014

    Lmfao The only person that has an Certified Flop is MooMoo. Memoirs of An Flop is stuck around 400k bwahahahahahahahahaha

  114. mya January 8, 2014

    The record she broke was Adele’s. Sam don’t put limits on her success.

  115. bye bxtch. u tried it. January 8, 2014

    I million digital copies? Oh ok.

    Call me when its one million physical copies and she has that platinum plaque

  116. AJ January 8, 2014

    Why is race always bought into things? Does it really have anything to do with? Black people keep on creating segregation but want equality? Also, the album is a digital release ONLY, so obviously all copies sold will be digital. The only way to listen to the album was to buy it. No one could even buy individual tracks for the first week. She also release during a 3 week period where no one else was releasing, Beyonce said herself that the date was finalised only 7 days before. The entire project has been schemed and marketed beyond belief to ensure that is does well after 4 didn’t perform like expected. Stop making up records. It’s so stupid, especially by using the race card. This is no record, it carries no significance.

    Mariah Carey Is the Best Selling Black Woman of all Time, right?

  118. mya January 8, 2014

  119. mya January 8, 2014

    The record she broke was Adele’s as The fastest album to sell 1 million digital copies in the US” Sam don’t put limits on her success.

  120. Hadley January 8, 2014

    @AJ wrong it is not a digital release only.

  121. mya January 8, 2014

    It all adds up the same LMAO! Dear. The album has sold over 1 million copies in the US. It’s platinum LOL

    @POP
    I honestly don’t even know. A lot of people wouldn’t give her that title because she isn’t fully black, she’s multi-racial. I think she has to be the best selling multi-racial person of all time. Lmao

  123. AJ January 8, 2014

    It was when it was released, exclusive to iTunes.

  124. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    @Tyler

    I wasn’t even talking to you, I was talking to the hive. Honey, I’m a mariah Carey fan. My fave has sold more records in the US alone than Beyonce has sold worldwide. The lambs are superior to the Hive and Mariah is superior to Beyonce. Hence, respect shall be given and Beytches will bow down. #Peasants

  125. AJ January 8, 2014

    Mariah identifies as black, but why bring race into it? It’s so unnecessary. We are in the 21st century. Btw, I love Mariah and Beyonce.

  126. Hadley January 8, 2014

    @Aj I know.

  127. DIGGER BEY January 8, 2014

    @AJ:

    dec. 13th : Beyonce released “beyonce” to Itunes in a Digital Format.
    In iTunes, you Had no options to buy tracks individually, you had to buy the whole album JUST to preview the Songs, 15.99$ ain’t a thing for a 33 Tracks and a Digital booklet if you asked me, but it was a trick, a marketing trick, and to be honest, i don’t blame her, she wanted anything to up her game after what happened to “4”.
    dec. 19 : Manufacturing of CDs began and shipments began taking places, every store had it “even Starbucks!… minus target, amazon only has the Mp3 Download and not the CD version.
    her older fans will get the CD in stores the old-skool way and probably in iTunes and her younger/casual fans will have it from iTunes… and you can always find it on the internet if you have no Money or simply think it is not worthy to spend your hard-earned coins on a beyonce CD, is up to U!

    Personally I’m waiting for her Physical album sales and her album sales after a Year.

  129. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 8, 2014

    I don’t care BXTCH!

  130. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 8, 2014

    @Slayriah:

    then Congratulations, a New Festive Title and receipt was Curated for her. 😉

    I know she’s UNbothered, but…

    Btw, why you don’t rock her new pic in Fb? she looks hot in it. (I like the one in the Fb cover more!)

    I’m here for “My All” single cover, best romantic Song to be honest, ok maybe a tie with “I will always love you” By Whitney, i always struggle choosing between those 2.

  131. Just Sayin January 8, 2014

    After all is said and done, no one had to buy an album for $16. You know it, I know it, and everyone who purchased knew it. And if you think anyone could do this and have her success you are foolish. She is winning!!! And still selling! I give credit where it is due.

  132. Baby Love Me Lights Out January 8, 2014

    @SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE)

    Mariah will never have another album sell over 1 million copies. DEAL with that!

    Btw, how are those flop Christmas albums doing? Still haven’t gone platinum yet? Lol.

  133. Tyler January 8, 2014

    B**** I don’t care WHO THE F*** u are talking to. Evidently, Mariah isn’t as superior as u claim. Because instead of letting ur fave’s “legacy” speak for itself and acting like u have some damn sense like most people who stan for vets i.e. Whitney, MJ, Janet, or Madonna’s stans ur over here”slummin” with us. Mariah’s bloated ass isn’t even relevant to the topic at hand. And I consider myself a Bey stan. Thus, I will do and say as I please in my motherfuckin fave’s post…U act like u have too much to prove. People around these parts are always quick to drag ur thick ass fave for that very reason. So f*** respect.

  134. fatusankoh January 8, 2014

    Congrat queen bey hatters have noting on you you are born talented star more success in all you do you made one of the amzine classic album hatters are mad about that long live queen bey thanks Sam for posting good job

  135. DIGGER BEY January 8, 2014

    Just like how The General Public doesn’t care for MooMoo anymore and it will show once The Art Of Flopping is released. If it ever sees an release date. @THE HIVE …Moofausa isn’t s*** anymore. And @Flopiah knows it. That’s why the piece of s*** is always checking for THE QUEEN. THE QUEEN is already over that hog anyway as an greater artist. MooMoo is on Katy Perry and Kesha level now.

  136. Tyler January 8, 2014

    Respect??? Hahaha I wish I would. PigInABlanketRiah will never get the respect that I give MJ, Madonna, or Whitney from. Not until u lambchops stop running a muck on TGJ #SorryBoutIt

  137. Bey Fan January 8, 2014

    Wait…. how was beyonce dodging competition? Because she didn’t release the same week as Gaga or Katy or Britney?

    None of those ladies released the same week as each other….

    I dont get that argument. Her 2nd and 3rd week sales were still higher than their first week. I need to understand the logic behind this argument….

  138. h2o January 9, 2014

    QUEEN!

  139. cocobutta January 9, 2014

    “Yonce filling out of this skirt, I look so good I ain’t lost it. And I didn’t miss a beat”

    YESSSSS you sure didn’t miss a beat when dropping this album lol. Good girl and deserved numbers for the work that’s put in to being that beast entertainer.

    sidenote: Bills, Bills, Bills just reminded me to shout out another true hustling child of Destiny in LeToya Luckett. She gave life in that 1st episode of the new season 3 of Single Ladies (title ironic right lol). The shade was tooo much that she gave April.

  140. Lily January 9, 2014

    Poor you worrying about Rihanna. Go take your meds

  141. LOL January 9, 2014
