Beyonce & Jay Z Rock Billboard’s ‘Power 100’ List

Published: Thursday 23rd Jan 2014 by David


‘Crazy in Love’ collaborators Beyonce & Jay Z have seen their long-running reign atop Pop culture celebrated this year, topping Billboard’s 2014 ‘Power 100′ list.

Hailed the ‘King & Queen‘ by the outlet, moves made by the couple in 2013 have secured them the top spot, as both continue to reap rewards made from mega-selling albums, lucrative brand partnerships and the element of surprise both employed to shock, shake and slam their closest rivals!

Full story below…

Billboard explains:

Then there’s Beyoncé, Queen Bey’s Dec. 13 midnight surprise, which arrived through a one-week exclusive, album-only release on iTunes. Like Jay Z’s everything-at-once-release with Samsung, it shut out streaming, retail and individual track sales, forcing listeners to focus on the album as a cohesive work. The result seemed to transform everyone—industry executives, journalists, Twitter cynics, casual listeners—back into a fan.

“She took a high risk and was highly rewarded for it,” says Guy Oseary (No. 38), who manages Madonna and U2 at his Untitled Entertainment. “I love what she did. Thank you, Beyoncé—it brings much-needed excitement and buzz to our industry.”

Though there was great discussion of the game-changing implications of both releases—and whether they can ever be re-created—perhaps what’s most important is that Jay Z and Beyoncé found ways to focus attention on music itself. For years label bosses have said that audiences will pay for music if they’re excited, and that turns out to be true: Magna Carta . . . Holy Grail sold 528,000 in its first week, which beat Jay’s previous recent releases, according to Nielsen SoundScan. In total, the album sold 1.1 million copies in 2013, one of only three rap releases to go platinum last year. Beyoncé moved even quicker with the singer’s surprise blitz—in the first three hours of release the album sold 80,000 copies through iTunes and, sources say, 850,000 in the first week. In its four weeks of release it sold 1.3 million. That total was enough to make it the eighth-biggest-selling album of 2013 in less than a month.”

“The release of Beyoncé’s album was a great way to finish the year, and a chief reminder for me that artists, songwriters and producers have really good ideas,” says Warner/Chappell Music president of creative for North America Jon Platt (No. 51), who brought both Beyoncé and Jay Z to the powerful publisher. “We’re supposed to help them nurture and realize those dreams, not kill them. At times, experienced company executives can be so smart at outlining every reason why an idea can’t work instead of focusing on how it can work. In the case of Beyoncé’s album, her team focused on how it could work.”

Island Def Jam and Columbia, Jay Z and Beyoncé’s respective labels, worked closely with the artists and their management teams to execute these disruptive deals, but other label heads remain most impressed by the artists’ take-charge approach. “Just watching [the Beyoncé] phenomenon happen was really exciting—and admittedly more enjoyable watching it from the sideline than being in the midst of it,” says Republic Records president/COO Avery Lipman (No. 17). “It said, ‘Look what a certain type of artist can do with the press of a button.'”

And RCA Music Group president/COO Tom Corson and CEO Peter Edge (No. 21) see the moves as part of a shift toward social media and partners outside the traditional label system. “The dynamic of social media moving the needle is now at the center of any smart campaign,” Corson says. But more than ever, Edge argues, “finding [new] opportunities has become more significant—Jay Z with Samsung, Justin [Timberlake] with Target and Budweiser. It’s not terribly new, but it seems like this is the new dynamic of the business—to find partners. We see ourselves as partners not only with the artists and their camps but with other companies and aligned businesses.”

  32. Iconic cici January 23, 2014

  34. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT January 23, 2014

    and im waiting for ciara to reach gold mind you this is the self titled album.. shows how much people give a s*** about her! KIII

  35. Lovebird January 23, 2014

    Sorry, I can only give props to Beyonce for this. Jay-Z buying 1 million copies of his own album is nothing to brag or moon over about.

    That is payola gone wild; that is far worst payola that it puts Mariah’s to shame.

    So congratulations Beyonce; as for Mr Carter, you’re going to have to come harder.

  36. Iconic cici January 23, 2014

    F*** you cared enough to dedicate your name to the Queen.

  37. MRD January 23, 2014

    The Z-Squad always drag themselves…
    A used tampon from Beyonce would garner more attention than a new album from Ciara.

    Stop shading yourselves,you sound just like Ciara!It’s only the beginning..The beginning of the end!

    Jay-Z>Future!!!(Future will be forgotten in about two years top!)

    Ciara is done and has been done since the fantasy ride era!

  38. Iconic cici January 23, 2014

    @Grace mind your business and go shave your v***** no one was speaking to you.

  39. Lovebird January 23, 2014

    Who is running Billboard for them to write a propaganda piece on Jay-Z who bought 1 million copies of his own album?

    Basically Eminem SOLD what Jay-Z PURCHASED of himself; come one let’s bring credibility back to the industry, it has been too shady.

    I cannot at them giving props to payola gone wild by salivating over someone who bought 1 million copies of his own album, this is propaganda at its worst.

    Congratulations Beyonce for the smart move, you truly deserve this one.

  40. Ciara Is A Flop … January 23, 2014

    Beyonce does not yell!!! She has very good control & vibrato control…

    But I guess stanning for Ciara EVERYBODY will seem like their yelling since your so use to Ciara’s WHISPER VOCALsss ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz BYE ICONIC C-FLOP-Error

  41. Iconic cici January 23, 2014


  42. Iconic cici January 23, 2014

    Beyonce is the most overrated performer IMO she shouts and pops her sweaty p**** and her fans think that’s LEGENDARY? Girrrrrl please.

  43. Lovebird January 23, 2014

    “Beyonce does not yell!!! She has very good control & vibrato control…”

    LMAO, so much delusion in one statement. I wonder if you guys actually believe your own lies.

  44. YONCE AKA BEYONSLAY January 23, 2014

    What Top Vocalist lists has Ciara been on? I’ll Wait….
    Beyonce is on Each and EVERY one of them!

  45. Iconic cici January 23, 2014

    @Lovebird i know right but what do you expect the hive is the most delusional fan base on earth.

  46. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT January 23, 2014

    that’s cute considering i shut you b****** down with 1 comment. Ciara doesn’t even have a grammy for vocals so no one gives a s*** about it. and nicki will have her platinum plaque before ciara can go gold!! kii

  47. Iconic cici January 23, 2014

    She doesn’t deserve to be on any when all she does is yell lipsync and yell some more.

  48. Iconic cici January 23, 2014

    And Nicki is the most pathetic performer of all time lil mama is a better artist then that made in China b****.

  49. Lovebird January 23, 2014


    ^^^^^ even with 351841361681343518416313184135 features

  50. Stephy Tha Lambily January 23, 2014

    @LoveBird, What song exactly did Mariah Carey used Payola for… –

  51. Iconic cici January 23, 2014

    B**** it doesn’t matter what she has a Grammy for when Nicki has none! & death at the GRAMMYS completely disowning Nicki after that pathetic demonic mentally ill performance of roman holiday that B**** has been done ever since.

  52. Iconic cici January 23, 2014

    “BUT NICKI MINAJ DOESN’T HAVE A GRAMMY ^^^^^ even with 351841361681343518416313184135 features”

    That’s beyond pathetic the grammys doesn’t take Nicki seriously…

  53. Lovebird January 23, 2014

    Are you seriously coming for Ciara with this?

    So much struggle in one performance, I don’t know whether to feel sorry for her or get mad at American Idol for making the public endure this nonsense.

  54. Lovebird January 23, 2014

    And I do not even know what leg you Ciara fans have to stand on when Ciara loses money every time she books a stage.

  55. Lovebird January 23, 2014

    Anyway back to the slayage that is the way this album was released by the S** Merchant herself.

    You better strip and take all them XXL clothes off madam carter, yasss ma’am.

  56. Truth B Told January 23, 2014

    Well you get put at the top if you dish out money and have alternate deals with people who sponsor you these two are killing the art of music

  57. Lovebird January 23, 2014

    Oh and shout-out to my favs

    @Pop Royalty

  58. Stephy Tha Lambily January 23, 2014

  62. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT January 23, 2014

    beez in the trap is gold, a certification ciara will never see

  63. #Beautiful January 23, 2014

    @LoveBird… Please get a life. You have so much hatred it is so ridiculous! I don’t understand how you can call Beyonce a “s** merchant” but stand for Rihanna… Please! We all know Beyonce for the most part was very clean as far as her content goes but the moment she puts out a s***/mature album she’s a s** merchant??

    PLAYS (S&M, Pour it Up, Birthday Cake)

  64. Stephy Tha Lambily January 23, 2014

    Nicki Minaj’s music is horrible!

    No wonder she has no Grammy Awards & no #1 hits after 23234123412341234123 single releases/features…


  65. ratedxx(love is beautiful) January 23, 2014

    what’s the purpose of getting all hyped every time beyonce and her husband are on top of a list?

    I actually already expect the broad to make every list..she’s not touring because she wants her fans to see her..once you seen a beyonce concert, you’ve seen them all..

    you would think since the carters are suppose to be worth a billion combined, both of them can afford to go away, stay away from the spotlight for a year or two…

    nope..they have to be able to afford to be on every list….and paying people off for fugging them over..doesn’t come cheap

  66. ratedxx(love is beautiful) January 23, 2014

    and I’m curious if beyonce is above everybody else..why do you keep bringing up her so call lessors, like keri hilson, Ciara, rihanna, Mariah?

    I always wonder why the beyonce stans can’t just let beyonce’s work speak for it self instead of trying to drag strangers over a dumb broad, who doesn’t even take people who knows her(Kelly) seriously?

    I noticed also..the people who used to so call drag beyonce suddenly are now fans of hers….

    and those people who flip flops….and those people who only cares about albums sales and hits…pathetic

  67. ratedxx(love is beautiful) January 23, 2014

    I posted the keri hilson picture for a reason…lets see who falls for the bait…..

    because we all know in order to make beyonce better, the stans have to bash or try to drag(it’s 2014, drag and hater needs to die), somebody’s elses fav..

    I enjoy watching them write the same dumb shid…nothing makes me sleep better watching a bunch of mental patients attempts to drag a so call lessor…

    One, two them boys coming for you
    Three, four, better lock your door
    Five, six, hide your bich

  68. Skyfall January 23, 2014

    Nicki minaj makes good music when she actually puts time into the lyrics

    Moment 4 Life
    Save Me
    I’m the best

    Basically her first album was everything, if she goes back to her roots than generic
    Pop then she will do good and personally I feel she was robbed for best new artist

  69. Stephy Tha Lambily January 23, 2014


  70. Belladonna January 23, 2014

    Congrats to both of them they deserve it. They’ve reached hights know other Black Artists in the last 10years have reached. They said fu*k having a number1 song. They sell albums & Tours. They own there own music & they make multimillion doller deals with big Company’s. There Friends with the first President & First Lady of color. And to top it all off they empower & give back to the world. There ICONS & they make me proud to be black!

  71. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014

    B**** Nicki is a KNOT!!!

    The Barbz will deal!

    She was hot two years ago, and only gives life in Urban gay clubs….

    Ciara went Gold with Body Party so lets not you silly raggedy anne! And that was NOT a feature unlike to Nickis 913819378129322189 efforts

  72. istanformusic January 24, 2014

    @Flopconic Cici you seem to hate on EVERY artist mentioned on TGJ. Is there any other singer out there that you like besides Ciara?

  73. istanformusic January 24, 2014

    The Z squad stay pressed as usual about everybody elses fav doing better than ciara, but I guess I would too if I was a stan for a flop. Everybody had a better year and outsold Cierror, who came dead last.

    Beyonce 1.5 mil sold
    Unapoligetic: 1.1 million
    Girl on Fire: 750k
    Keyshia cole woman to woman: 375k
    Love & War: 320k
    Side effects of you: 275k
    Rebellious soul: 250
    Talk a good game: 175k
    Ciara: 160k

  74. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014

    B**** you clearly dont come here often if all you see are comments of me dragging the other artist. I am very supportive of talent and successful projects. Probably the most unbiased personality on this site. So lets not!

    And what a perfect and very common way to make a first impression on TGJ by coming for Ciara and Csquad ^^^^

    You can go back to hiding in the shadows now, and just being a spectator!

  75. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014

    And Ms.Thing, Iconic cici and I are 2 different people. Dont try to merge us together with that pitiful effort to try and shade my name with leftovers that you stole from the other TGJ commenters.

    Its spelled @FUTURECIARA dahling, Thanks!

  76. istanformusic January 24, 2014

    @FutureCiara if your comment was directed at me then you’re way off. I wasnt even talking to you. I was talking to Iconic cici. chill out.

  77. BeyIsKing January 24, 2014

    Work Bey!!!

  78. Naomi January 24, 2014

    Congrats Beyonce! SHE STAY WINNING!!!!! DEALLLLL

  79. Naomi January 24, 2014

    And wasn’t it just on the other post that mess of a lamb was coming for their power? #Irony.

  80. Kingboss January 24, 2014

    no, no one SHOULD care. But you clearly do. You’re here after all.

  81. Suicide Blonde January 24, 2014

    Let me think what to type…….Sighs….Congrats.

  82. h2o January 24, 2014



  83. mekaela January 24, 2014

    You behive trip me out Beyonce won’t stay on top forever and when her failures comes I will sit back with popcorn because u Hateful hives are the worst scum of the earth hating on someone else’s failure u just wait sips tea

  84. TinaMinaj January 24, 2014

    Hahahahaha the ENDLESS POWER AND SLAYAGE!!

    Spin it whichever way you want to help you feel better about your faves but the FACTS are in our faces! The Carters are doing it big and keep their eyes set on greatness! Hopefully some of these other black artists take notes! There’s a lot to learn from them and other great black entrepreneurs.

  85. quetta January 24, 2014

    Congrats bey n jay. And lmao @iconic cici getting dragged. Also, don’t say it takes 5 hive members to drag you when it takes the entire c-squad to attack rosie & she still holds her own!

  86. Rosie January 24, 2014

    Congrats to them. And death at the Z-Squad being dragged like its nothing on this post. I would be angry too if my fave couldn’t sell 200K (worldwide!) in six months.

  87. RoyalKev January 24, 2014

    I’m still amazed at how Bey pulled off this album’s roll-out. It was so daring, so boss, but also great for music. She’s bringing back to the fundamentals. I appreciate the way Bey makes you soak in her music. ‘Beyonce’ gave me an experience that I don’t often get to indulge in these days!

  88. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014

    Nobody from the Csquad is pressed though!

    Its always a battle wit you gorls, and when we attack back its never in groups. But then you want to say that we are always dragging every artist, and gang up on people which is furthest from the truth!

    As far as active Csqaud members go
    @Molly holds her own,
    @IconicCici holds her own,
    and so do I.

    I cant recall a post where we sat there and dragged rosie all at the same time, But there are plenty of posts where we each drag simultaneously, but yet individually….

    You gorls just cant take it!!!!

    But I totally understand, I would come for Ciara too if her fans dragged me for filfth everyday as well!

  89. Lolz January 24, 2014

    @Future Ciara did you not see the first comment?

  90. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014


    I would also be upset when fresh puss (Lorde) Takes my favs shine away, that Lana worked so hard (7years) to achieve even a blink from the GP.

    We’ll see who will be doing the dragging come Grammy night! After Lorde walks with all her Grammys.

  91. Lolz January 24, 2014

    Anyway congrats Quuen Bey and Jay Z. Blue Ivy has already broken more billboard records than Ciara.

  92. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014


    What does the first comment really have to do with anything sweetheart??

    Thats how TF @Iconic feels, So what is your point???

    We are all entitled to our own opinions, so when will people stop acting so pressed when someone’s comment shows they are not checking for a certain artist….?

  93. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014

    I actually like, Listen and support Beyonce… As she has shown love to Ciara multiple times.

    So stop pointing the finger towards the entire fan-base for one individuals opinion/comment.

  94. Lolz January 24, 2014


    Ummm you saying no one from the C Squad is pressed. It’s pure LIES. How can yoi say don’t care yet you’re here and first to comment? Certain C Squad members are forever pressed trolling Beyonce and Rihanna posts before anyone comes for Ciara. Iconic, Cici, Super Cisus, Cici slays stay on Bey and Rihs c*** more than their fav shading them with something Ciara could never do usually. They are the reason Ciara gets dragged on this site. I don’t Ciara stans on any other site like this. Beyonce and Rihanna have bigger fan bases so of course they will attack in groups.

    Just because you’re not pressed (you are tye only sane C squad member on here along with Molly when she wants to be) doesn’t speak for the whole fan base darling.

  95. Lolz January 24, 2014

    you* I don’t see*

  96. Lolz January 24, 2014


    Ugh this phone

  97. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014

    Point taken doll.

    But isnt it ironic how a stan base can alter the opinion of somebody liking an artist or not…..

    It needs to come to the point where people recognize the artists talent, hard work and zero tolerance for fraud, foolishness and fuckery!!

  98. Lolz January 24, 2014

    Certain Ciara fans just need several seats. I used to think some of them just came on this site hiding behind Ciaras name to troll they sounded so pressed and delusional. But they’re very persistant. You’d think they would have learned by now.

  99. Lolz January 24, 2014

    @Future Ciara. I like Ciara. But I’m not going to hold back if her fans try it.

  100. Jen January 24, 2014

    Why do they have to cheapen everything by making it about “rivals” or killing th competition. Find a new angle to bait these dumb stans whom fall for it or simply just say RIHANNA’S name.

  101. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014

    My time is precious and I treat it as such.

    I don’t have the time or energy it takes to respond to every person that literally hates Ciara. I simply wont do it.

    I will drag every now and again. Especially when I send for @Rosie, we go way back, and truth is, she just cant take me….

    But its fact that she has also made just about everyone HATE Lana and the ground she walks on.

  102. FutureCIARA January 24, 2014


    Drag for filth doll,

    Geeta Doyal of Slate compared the album to Michael Jackson’s Thriller, calling it a “Tour de Force”, “Unstoppable”, and suggested it is helping to reinstate ideas of “the album as an Event. The album as a Grand Career Defining Statement. #FAWKIN TRAILBLAZER

    And just think even though they stay a top most of the List, they still will not be able to buy themselves a
    seat next to the Almighty.

    I’m sorry but the Z-Squad can’t come for nobody when their fave can’t even scan 500K copies. Don’t even come for Nicki cause she’s still doing better than Ciara.
    Ya’ll Z-Squad should just join the Beyhive once for all and we can run the world ;).

    I wonder why can’t she sell like Taylor or Adele.
    There’s always so much hype with bayonce,somehow she has to work twice as hard to be half as goodd.
    Taylor sold 10 mil. albums just this decade and Adele is diamond already and last decade Britney sold so much it was impossible for bayonce to compete, maybe next decade there will be room for bayonce.

    Well well well… Beyonce proving why she is that b**** as usual. So proud of this BLACK woman.

    @Ammie Leann are you from the US? Beyonce is the only black woman to sell this much in years. If you are black you need to stop trying to put her up against white artists who have it easier, which is the truth. Not only that, Beyonce is selling a very R&B/Hip Hop driven album. I hate to pull the race card, but do you honestly think Adele would have sold as much if she was black? Same with Taylor. People like Adele have old white audiences on their side. The type of music Beyonce makes does not stretch that far. Taylor has the pure pop audience on her side. I want you to name one other black female… No wait, black artist period who is selling like Beyonce right now.

    People like you are sickening. Instead of embracing Beyonces success, you want to tear her down with others accomplishments. She is doing WELL period.
