‘Sales Forecast’: Lady GaGa & Lana Del Rey Gear Up For Platinum Showers

Published: Monday 24th Mar 2014 by David

It may have taken it longer than her fans would have liked, but it would appear Lana Del Rey‘s ‘Born to Die‘ debut now stands no more than 4,000 units from hitting the 1 million units sold mark in the USA!

Want the 411 on her impending Platinum glory?

Come with us…

Opening with 77,000 units in the US, Lana’s ‘Born’ has spent the last two years gliding towards the 1 million milestone and now has the enviable prize in her sights, after its sales twirled past the 996,000 units mark last week.

As it stands, the LP is now placed just 4,000 copies away from reaching the spot, looking on as Lorde‘s ‘Pure Heroine‘ touches down at global sales of 2,021,000 copies and Katy Perry‘s ‘Prism’ sings to the merry tune of 2,615,000 units!

Elsewhere, last week brought with it 2,000 more units moved by Lady GaGa‘s ‘ARTPOP‘, placing it at #156 on the ‘Billboard 200′ and pushing its US sales to 677,000!

Expected to benefit from the release of its second supporting music video, ‘POP’ joins ‘Born’ on its quest for Platinum ground, with 323,000 copies to sell before it arrives there.

Meanwhile, on a singles tip, last week saw Iggy Azalea‘s ‘Fancy’ slip eight spots to claim the #96 spots on the ‘Hot 100’ while Ciara‘s ‘Body Party’ continues on its journey to reach the ‘Platinum promised land’, before the release of her sixth studio album and first baby with ‘Honest’ performer Future.

    I thought her career in the US ended after SNL?
    It’s almost impossible for most artists to even go gold after only debuting with only 77K. Congrats queen of longevity.

    • Molly March 24, 2014

      Congratulations to your fav sis i mean it took forever but hey atleast she got it #Respect

      • Rosie March 24, 2014

        Aw thanks.

    • Mark111 March 24, 2014

      You always rep her, true fan. It shows that even if your first week sales is low, you can still go plat by supporting your album, rather it’s a year or 2.

      • Rosie March 24, 2014

        Thanks 🙂
        I always knew her time in America would come, lol. I think Young & Beautiful was the real turning point tbh.

    • FutureCIARA March 24, 2014

      The Great Gatsby film really helped your girl out! With all the Oscar buzz that film garnered it really gave her a boost here in the US for being featured song in the film….

      Im glad that movie won a few Oscars for the costumes… That was my favorite movie last year and favorite time in Fashion.. And that Lana song did really play in well with that theme.

      So big ups s****!!

  2. BeyHive March 24, 2014

    ARTPOP sales….pathetic. I guess because Gaga is a pathetic pop star.


    • Leebe March 24, 2014

      600,000 is pathetic? a director, writer, activist, Singer, pianist has 5 grammy’s and 160 million records is pathetic. I guess I would be jealous of that like you hence your comment 🙂

      Beyonce didn’t do great with 4 but she sprang back.

  3. JohnVidal March 24, 2014


  4. Molly March 24, 2014

    Omg the first Lana post in like forever lol this will be messy.

    Born To Die >>> Artpoop

  5. LORDE March 24, 2014

    Only took her 2 years 😀

  6. Mileys movement March 24, 2014

    Lana and Gaga both STRUGGLE for platinum.

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      Kinda like how Viley struggles to sell 2 million worldwide with twice as much promo and even more publicity stunts than every other female singer worldwide combined.

  7. JJFan1814 March 24, 2014

    Underdogs always prevail !! In terms of longevity anyways. Congrats P!nk & Lana! Hurry with Ultraviolence! I love that woman! Lol

  8. Mileys movement March 24, 2014

    Wait but how is a 2 year old album selling more than a 4th month old album.

  9. LDN Chick March 24, 2014

    Death @ Artpops struggle. Well done Lana. She is natural ART not forced like Flopga.

  10. slay_hive March 24, 2014

    LOL There is NO hope for GaGa. Selling only 2,000 copies last week? *chuckles* At this rate she’ll get to platinum by this time next year. Which is very sad, considering she went platinum in a week with her last release! LOL With the help of the 99 cent discount, of course! 😀

    All of this promotion and she can’t outsell BaddieBey! Congrats Lana! 😉

  11. Mileys movement March 24, 2014

    Let me stop you Hoesie because Miley doesn’t get vomited on like your favs embarrassing label mate.

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      Death, what does Fadga getting puked on have to do with Lana? The reach. Worry about your fave’s tour struggling to sell out.

  12. RICHIE_RICH March 24, 2014

    To be real Roise put me on to lana…..I see it for Ms.Lana, she is doing her thing.

    Yesss Ms. Rosie gurl@Roise

  13. Rosie March 24, 2014

    “Lorde‘s ‘Pure Heroine‘ touches down at global sales of 2,021,000 copies”
    Congrats but death at 75% of that total coming from the US and four other countries.

    • FutureCIARA March 24, 2014

      Lets be realistic here sis….

      She still hit platinum before Lana, and US is the biggest market. so 75% is huge considering every musical artist longs for American relevance. And Lorde just happened to have the right formula for star/selling power in the US.

      Dont be a bitter queen.

      No T.

  14. Meena March 24, 2014

    Let’s be real here, lorde is slowly fading, only song that clearly has done well is royal. One hit wonder yep.

  15. lovebird March 24, 2014

    Wait a minute, hasn’t it been like close to 3 years now and this album is still not platinum? Considering the way Lana fans are out of control, it is pretty embarrassing that Pure Heroine has sold over a million copies in a shorter time span than Born to die.

    Considering the way Lana fans brag about her, one would think she was doing some Adele type numbers, instead she is just getting by with barely selling over a million copies after close to 3 years; Lana fans need to explain this.

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      And it still sold 5 million worldwide.
      We always knew the US was her least supportive market, it is not the end-all-be-all. Some artists are successful without a lot of US support. Lana is one of them.
      Meanwhile, ask your fellow Borde bandwagon why more 75% of her worldwide sales come from 5 (English speaking) countries.

    • slay_hive March 24, 2014

      Looks like Lana will be outselling UNAFLOP in the U.S. soon without a #1.

      If anyone should be doing Adele numbers, it’s the one with 13 #1 hits! 😉

      • lovebird March 24, 2014

        And they have both sold more copies than 4 (waits for RnB excuse).

      • slay_hive March 24, 2014

        unaflop didn’t outsell 4 in the U.S. with all of that promo and that generic “hit” tsk tsk.

        4 was R&B. could your fave do the same? kii I doubt it, she struggles to sell pop albums! 😉 Everyone slays Rihanna in album sales

      • lovebird March 24, 2014

        Una sold more Worldwide; and it’s not Rihanna’s fault Beyonce CANNOT get a hit. Rihanna is too DIVERSE of an artist to release a boring album filler like 4.

        Beyonce will never release a song to the quality of no love allowed, cold case love, firebomb, Russian roulette, love without tragedy/mother Mary without stealing from somebody.

        Oh I forgot, 4 was such a boring failure that Beyonce is releasing stripper anthems now.

      • slay_hive March 24, 2014

        I would expect a Pop album with more WW generic hits to outsell a strictly R&B album with no commercial success. The fact that 4 is not too far behind Unaflop doesn’t make Rihanna’s sales look any better either! LOL

        DIL is a hit! What do you mean Beyonce can’t get a hit! #REACH

        It’s not Beyonce’s fault that she can take a three year break between each album, and still sale without over-saturating the industry and desperately d*** riding trends for “hits”!

        Rihanna could NEVER deliver the musical or VOCAL quality of : Love on Top, Listen, I Care, Resentment, Flaws and All, Dangerously In Love, Ave Maria, BTINH, I Was Here ETC

        4 was boring to you because it didn’t consist of lifleless, horrible monotonous vocals hidden behind catch pop beats! Beyonce is superior b****. DEAL!

      • slay_hive March 24, 2014


  16. Suicide Blonde March 24, 2014

    Applauses for Goddess Del Rey, such a gift to the music industry, smart, talented, original and beautiful.

    Plays: Never Let Me Go.

  17. Meena March 24, 2014

    Do you have a life outside tgj?????????

  18. lovebird March 24, 2014

    And not Artpop selling LESS copies than Pure Heroine, Gang BangerZ, Disneyism, and Bore to death.

    She should have started out with G.U.Y slayage instead of the attention seeking antics; I cannot.

  19. Kim Kardashian stan March 24, 2014

    Not checking neither, one can’t sing and the other is desperate.

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      And what talent does Kim Kardashian have?

      • Himeros March 24, 2014

        Spreading legs like butter to bread yeh

  20. applause March 24, 2014

    Lmao death at Rosie praising a 2 year old album that struggled for platinum im sure Artpop will go platinum before its year anniversary.
    & The hive really needs to stfu weren’t yall the same hos clinging to Gaga during born this way era while Beyonce was flopping hard with 4? kiiiiii

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      Not when it’s only selling 2K a week after 18 weeks.
      If G.A.Y. flops it’ll be off the Billboard 200 by at least May.

      • applause March 24, 2014

        Lmao sorry sweetie G.U.Y. will not flop d*** its a future top 20 hit. Meanwhile you should be trying to find your favs vocals & stage presence she’s a garbage performer/singer watching Britney is more entertaining then Lana ugly duck lip ass.

      • Rosie March 24, 2014

        LMAO G.A.Y. isn’t even top 100 on US iTunes after over 36 hours. And it’s already getting airplay on both radio and MTV. Stop.

  21. lovebird March 24, 2014

    Rosie babe, that 5 million figure was reported by Interscope, the same Interscope that reported Artpop worldwide figures at 2.3 million ( do you believe that?).

    We don’t have to go this, we all know the criteria labels use for sales.

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      Mediatraffic isn’t even that far off from Interscope plus they don’t even count the majority of countries outside of Europe.
      I remember when IFPI and MusiCharts clocked them on BTD’s 2012 sales.

      • lovebird March 24, 2014

        Lol, so Artpop has sold 2.3 million then right? IFPI is reporting that.

        Media traffic counts 32 countries, not the most reliable but more reliable than others.

  22. Yolo March 24, 2014

    Not 156 though.

  23. Meena March 24, 2014

    The only way artpop goes platinum is if she reduces the price to 99c

  24. applause March 24, 2014

    Remember when 4 struggle for 3 million worldwide?

    • slay_hive March 24, 2014

      4 went platinum within 5 months tho. WITHOUT a top ten singles kii. ARtpoop is the struggle baby!

      ARTshit won’t even see 4’s WW sales 😉

      • applause March 24, 2014

        Artpop is already at 2.3 million worldwide Gaga is not local like Beyonce.

      • slay_hive March 24, 2014

        ArtSHIt is not a 2.3 million. Stop with the lies molly

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      Chartflop is struggling to outsell Borde’s local ass. Stop.

      • applause March 24, 2014

        Like how Lana struggle in the US?

      • Rosie March 24, 2014

        Struggling and still 97 spots above Fadga on the Billboard 200.

    • RICHIE_RICH March 24, 2014

      Chile a mess, But 4 went platinum within 4 to 5 months

  25. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 24, 2014

    Congrats to both. I’ve been getting into Lana lately,she deserves it.

  26. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 24, 2014

    Can someone tell me why a Kim Kardashian stan is trying to talk about talent?

  27. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT March 24, 2014

    • applause March 24, 2014

      lets not babe when roman reloaded still isn’t platinum been stuck at 800k for 2 years now?

      • NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT March 24, 2014

        LOL really b****? you wish artpop was in the same position as reloaded! artpop will struggle to reach platinum till 2015 deal b****!

  28. Yolo March 24, 2014

    Gaga has stayed at 600k for weeks now. She makes the most shittiest pop and is still struggling. I can’t.

  29. Mimi carey March 24, 2014


  30. Yolo March 24, 2014

    How is G.A.Y doing on Itunes?

  31. Yolo March 24, 2014

    Artpop is not at 2.3 million WW in sales. It is at 1.7 million.

    • applause March 24, 2014

      Yes it has Mother Monster said so.

      • Rosie March 24, 2014

        So using the same source (Interscope) Lana is at 5 million plus. Don’t try it.

  32. Suicide Blonde March 24, 2014

    March 24, 2014 at 11:44 am
    Considering the way Lana fans brag about her, one would think she was doing some Adele type numbers, instead she is just getting by with barely selling over a million copies after close to 3 years; Lana fans need to explain this.

    Lana is not a commercial artist, her music is not made it for charts, she’s an Indie artist, add that to the lack of support from the US since the SNL fiasco, she didn’t even bothered to promote the album here after that, she focused on Europe mostly after that, like many US musicians from Rock bands to solo artists, Lana has seen herself experiencing more success outside her own country, Americans barely support talented musicians these days so the fact that the album is almost platinum considering the kind of artist she is, says a lot of her power, a testament of her growing fan base. Lorde on the other hand, has a US #1 hit, that helped her album, no f**** given about that ancient looking teen, she’s a one hit wonder, mark my words, the real kiii here is Mainstream artists like Lady Gaga struggling to go platinum in her 3rd album, Lana is winning.

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      How did I just skip over this post. Piping hot tea right here.
      And Team only went top 10 in 7 countries, the US and Canada were the only major ones. Local one hit wonder indeed.

      • Suicide Blonde March 24, 2014

        I know 🙂

  33. DIGGER BEY March 24, 2014

    4 Struggled????? @ Applause…..4 reach platinum status in 6 months without an top ten. Caca is heading towards her 6th month and stuck in the 600s kiiiiiii

    • applause March 24, 2014

      I really dont care about what your ghetto ass has to say.

  34. Yolo March 24, 2014

    People need to learn the diffrence between shipments and actual sales.

    • applause March 24, 2014

      B**** and you need to learn the difference between live and playback #LipSyncYonce

  35. applause March 24, 2014

    Its hilarious that Rosie thinks Lana is the Queen of Interscope because of one decent selling album Lmao.

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      Interscope will never give Fadga a big budget again after Chartflop. G.A.Y. will be the last time.
      All this era accomplished was persuading Interscope to increase their budget for Ultraviolence, especially since as of late 2012 she is their bestselling female artist worldwide.

  36. Yolo March 24, 2014

    Does not change the fact Gaga has not even sold 2 million.

  37. applause March 24, 2014

    Lmao Lana and Beyonce fans clinging to each other i can’t .

  38. Del Bey March 24, 2014

    I have s

  39. lovebird March 24, 2014

    Born to die has sold 4 mill and shipped 5 million. Just like Artpop has sold 1.7 million and shipped 2.3 million.

    If you’re going to shade Gags for 1.7 million, use the same figures for Lana.

    • lovebird March 24, 2014

      *same source

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      Mediatraffic has Lana at 4.6 million.
      And that doesn’t even include the Paradise EP/rerelease.

  40. Yolo March 24, 2014

    ‘Mother monster’ is coveniently stating how much it shipped. Not sold. She was already clocked for that.

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      Just like how she supposedly went platinum first week here in Canada when she is barely over 80K.

  41. applause March 24, 2014

    Even if Gaga did sell 1.7 million she still sold a million elsewhere showing she isn’t local like some artists (Beyonce,Miley, Katy etc)

    • bye March 24, 2014

      Beyonce has sold 1.5 Million outside of the U.S. lmao

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      Katy also sold over a million outside of the US.

  42. Yolo March 24, 2014

    Beyonce has sold over a million elsewhere so whats your point?

  43. Yolo March 24, 2014

    And not a Rihanna stan coming for Beyonces music when her latest album is more acclaimed than Riherpes entire discography.

    85 metacritic>>>> Your opinion.

  44. applause March 24, 2014

    Bye Rosie!!! Gaga will always have a bigger budget then Lana you really letting one album hype yourself up when you don’t know how the 2nd album will do Lana can bearly sell 77k first week :(. When Lana makes the culture impact that Gaga has made then get back at me.

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      And Fadga’s cultural impact is stuck in 2012, just like her relevancy.
      Why wouldn’t Interscope more money to Lana? They lost millions on Chartflop and barely promoted Lana yet she still sold 4.6-5 million. Chartflop won’t come close to 3 million.

  45. applause March 24, 2014

    Applause to me & @Lovebird for dragging these h***.

    Gaga> Your Fav

    Congrats Ci

  47. lovebird March 24, 2014

    My dear slay hive, you have a right to remain pressed.

    Whilst your bragging about an album that is surviving off of a gimmick, my fav is about to receive another icon award in the realm of fashion (to add to her music icon award collection) and will be playing STADIUMS all over America.

    You can BS all you want about Rihanna selling albums but remember that whilst 4 was struggling for 2 years to sell 2.8 million; Rihanna had sold a cumulative total of 6.9 million albums in the same period and earned herself 13 #1s.

    You can forever remain pressed for there’s no stopping the Megaforce that is Rihanna Fenty.

    • slay_hive March 24, 2014

      LOL baby I’m NEVER pressed. I can could never be pressed while my fave released an album with NO prior promo, NO lead single, NO album release date, No ex-boyfriend controversy and STILL slays!

      Alot of these artists could have 50 #1 hits and couldn’t pull off what KING Bey did! It’s far from a “gimmick”. More like a risk. A risk that is setting a trend in the industry!

      IDGF about a made-up NONFACTOR fashion award that should really be given to her stylists! I’m here for the music and Beyonce will always be superior to her!!

      LOL @ you bragging about that 6.9 Million when 4 is @ 3million WW and this new ablum is at 3 Million (ongoing), bringing her total to 6 Million with TWO albums. the latter just being released in Decemer! You just proved your point on how basic Rihanna is, even with her multiple albums!!

      Beyonce out here breaking album and touring records and you’re bragging about a f***** “fashion” award! LOL I”M DONE!!!

      • lovebird March 24, 2014

        Baby you’re always pressed and you will forever remain pressed whilst Rihanna continues slaying your favorite like she effortlessly has been since 2007.

    • slay_hive March 24, 2014

      Honey if I’m pressed you are PRESSED to the 1000th power. You prove that every time you clock in on ALL of Beyonce’s post! 😉 LOL

      5 albums- 15 Million>>>>
      7 albums- 10 Million

      LOL gurl please!

  48. Stephy Tha Lambily March 24, 2014

I dont even know who you stan for, thats how vague and un-stimulating you are, stay PRESSED

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      I don’t even know who is in his avi 98% of the time. At least Zooey is A-list.

      • lovebird March 24, 2014

        Oh the shade was sharp@Del Bey yasss ma’am

      • lovebird March 24, 2014

        Lol what obsession if you can count over a million of my comments. When do you have time to listen to Lana’s boring elavator music when you spend most of your time fuming over my comments.

  50. How Many Drinks (Miguels Wifey) March 24, 2014

    Lol Beyonce put all these h*** to bed. While Rihanna gets fashion award, Beyonce is called the Queen of music by MTV upon receiving an artist of excellence Innovator award. She slayed them all and she has been around the longest.

    But i like Lanas music shes doing great for someone alternative.

    • kimbella March 24, 2014

      My N!gga what is Miguel doing besides kicking b!tches upside the head?

  52. Del Bey March 24, 2014

    Its nice to see all members of stan bases congratulating my fav, I inevitably knew this plaque was coming, to all those flip floppers who shaded lana before but now platinum has come into the equation want to start applauding, no thanks>>> give those applause to gaga, she needs it.

  53. kimbella March 24, 2014

    @DelBey you should be lucky anyones congratulating your fav you ungrateful piece of sh!t.

  54. RICHIE_RICH March 24, 2014

    The kids don’t know the difference between sold,shipment nor dragging…..

    If anything the kids are clocking them T’s boo…….

  55. ozzyone March 24, 2014

    TBH I’m not a Lana fan but I see a long career for her, unlike Gaga, I think she has more to offer and isn’t as REDUNDANT…

  56. Del Bey March 24, 2014

    Oh Kimbella yes I am grateful, I didn’t mean to sound arrogant

  57. Yolo March 24, 2014

    So lets put it into perspective where everyone mainstream currently stands.

    Beyonce 3.1 million (Since December 2013)
    Rihanna 3.5 million (Since November 2012)
    Katy Perry 2.6 million (Since October 2013)
    Lady Gaga 1.7 million (Since November 2014)
    Miley Cyrus 1.6 million (Since October 2013)

    The kiis write themselves.

      Unapologetic sold 4 million sis.

      • slay_hive March 24, 2014

        UNAFLOP shipped 4 Million sis. Why is everyone using shipment sales all of a sudden? Beyonce got ya’ll that pressed? LOL

      • Rosie March 24, 2014

        Then BTD sold 5 million.
        Do you want me to take the inflation game up a notch and add the 900K from the Paradise EP?

    • slay_hive March 24, 2014


      • ozzyone March 24, 2014

        Correction, IT SOLD 4 MIL. We’ll leave fake sales for ur fav.

      • slay_hive March 24, 2014

        ok baby, where are the receipts?! I haven’t seen one yet

  58. Yolo March 24, 2014

    2013 for Gaga*

  59. Stephy Tha Lambily March 24, 2014

    LoveBird, im blowing you a kiss on your sweet lips. 🙂

  60. Yolo March 24, 2014

    I have already clocked the delusional Gaga stan for the difference between shipments and sales Kimbella. You might want to re read.

  61. Suicide Blonde March 24, 2014

    Oh no, i hope you’re not referring to me, i’ve been a fan of this woman since day one, i’m in love with her.

    • Suicide Blonde March 24, 2014

      That was to @Del Bey 🙂

      • Del Bey March 24, 2014

        I like you suicide, I remember an exchange of nice words once, no I’m talking about a few non avi individuals that would of thrown lana under a metaphorical bus before this post was made. x

      • Suicide Blonde March 24, 2014

        Alllllright 🙂

  62. lovebird March 24, 2014

    No honey, only you don’t know who they are because you don’t look at hot guys that way. Ask any straight girl that can get a man and they know who Colton Haynes is.

    • lovebird March 24, 2014


    • Suicide Blonde March 24, 2014

      He is Gay tho. (meaning his a$$ belongs to Blondie)

      • lovebird March 24, 2014

        You wish, he is mine. We’ve already been through this.

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      Even if they did know him it wouldn’t change the fact that he’s D-list, sorry.

      • lovebird March 24, 2014

        But that’s just it Rosie, I don’t give a f*** that he’s D list, I give a f*** that he’s hot. If you were straight, you would know that.

      • Rosie March 24, 2014

        No straight person over the age of 16 knows who that is, sorry we prefer men who look like they’re past puberty.

      • lovebird March 24, 2014

        Good, that means I can have him to myself.

        That goes for you too Blondie.

  63. ozzyone March 24, 2014

    According to IFPI, my child. Now run along

    • ozzyone March 24, 2014

      For the Bey stan coming at me

    • slay_hive March 24, 2014

      according to IFPI Beyonce sold 2.3 Million in 19 days! IFPI also has lady gaga at 2.3 Million. Which means Beyonce should be nearing the 4 Million mark as well since we’re going by those reciepts! LOL run to a seat and take it b****!

      • ozzyone March 24, 2014

        Oh please that albums ridiculous shock tactic resulted in quick sales, and will quickly fizzle away as a result of Bey’s inability to get a number one.

      • slay_hive March 24, 2014

        That makes no sense. So if your fave was to release a “shock” album she would sell 1 Million in a week as well??!

        A #1 single isn’t everything and #1 singles don’t help album sales *looks at unaflop’s U.S. numbers* kii

      • slay_hive March 24, 2014

        meanwhile it’s been thee months and the album hasn’t fizzled yet! She sold more in the second week and third week than Rihanna sells in the first with her cancer healing #1 singles! LOOL

  64. Sarah March 24, 2014

    Wait a minute?? Did I miss the memo..Body Party isnt platinum yet? I remember people saying it was going on double platinum…the delusion is real

    • FutureCIARA March 25, 2014

      You should take time to research for yourself…

      And sis how is Kelly’s Re-Release coming along???

  65. h2o March 24, 2014

    As if multiplatinum and platinum certifications around the world weren’t enough …

    Slay Lana Del Global 😀

    GaGa isn’t going “platinum” anytime soon @Samantha. Her career is a mess, everything sucks. Flop songs, flop album, flop tour, flop everything. Hope this doesn’t last too long.

  66. Yolo March 24, 2014

    @Ozzyone IFPI use SHIPMENTS. According to them, Beyonce has done 5 million! Unpurchased has not sold 4 million. And Artpop has not sold 2.3 million. Death @ the fanbases inflating in a struggle yet you’re the same ones who comes for some Hive members for that.

    • ozzyone March 24, 2014

      Oh here we go again, IFPI COVERS SALES AND SHIPMENTS. When it comes to UNA, they counted the sales to stand at 4.1 Mil worldwide. Don’t even get me started at what it shipped.

      • ashley March 24, 2014

        well Beyonce has sold 5 Million in three months! lmao

  67. Yolo March 24, 2014

    I can’t @ the double standards. Everyone wants to use Mediatraffic for Beyonce but IFPI for their faves.

  68. Del Bey March 24, 2014

    @stephy the flipflopily, genuine question, do you have bipolar disorder? you show signs of spontaneous mood change, its worrying, we already witnessed your ‘speech’ DENOUNCING Mariah as your queen, so why would you think we would all just forget that? IM a true lamb,and you ….

    • Stephy Tha Lambily March 24, 2014

      I’m a dramatic QUEEN. I tend to overact on things that are small. I was just having a moment that day. I was just disappointed as a LAMB. Also, im very crazy! So to answer your question I AM VERY BI POLAR and probably many other things. 🙂

  69. Stephy Tha Lambily March 24, 2014

    Rosie. Please, dont watch Mariah’s video! I hate that song & it needs to stay a flop. However you can purchase anything from her catalog 2005 & back…

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      Oh, no! I didn’t watch You’re Mine LOL.
      I decided on Vision of Love.

  70. ozzyone March 24, 2014

    And I can’t with dumb b****** ignoring the facts because their pressed. Have several seats

    • ashley March 24, 2014

      post a receipt then………..

  71. Del Bey March 24, 2014

    Hunny I am a GAY male, I clock the hot guys from miles away, HELL I was on Taylor Lautners d*** when he was in cheaper by the dozen, the years later all the female population clocked onto my leftovers! YOU hunny watch vampire diaries and gossip girl, the boys in your avi are D-LIST tv actors who play stupid frat boys… NEXT

    • Del Bey March 24, 2014

      This was to @LOVEBIRD and her team of irrelevant white boys she tortures us with weekly

    • Rosie March 24, 2014


    • lovebird March 24, 2014

      I cannot at the obsession with me though. I’m screaming. I keep you pressed lol.

  72. Yolo March 24, 2014

    @Ozzyone. Honey Im talking pure sales. If you’re gonna inflate Rihannas sales then same goes for everyone else, and Unpurchased would still fall short.

  73. ozzyone March 24, 2014

    Oh how I remember the shame within in the hive when 4 was struggling for it’s dear life and now with the most ridiculous tactic to sell an album, they think they’re all that. If were gonna sit here and praise this stunt, ask yourself this. Do u honestly think she could’ve sold this album based on promo/singles when all they do is disappoint? Hell no, she NEEDED A GIMMICK TO SELL THIS TRASH. Sorry but not sorry

    • ashley March 24, 2014

      4 was not a struggle. 4 sold more in the U.S. than Rihanna sells with her bubble gum pop!

      How was this a stunt? Could Rihanna do the same and sell 1 Million in a week?

      If Beyonce was that desperate for a hit, she would have released a single to itunes instead of her album and it would have SHOT to #1! Beyonce is an album aritst. She isn’t concerned with just a single. Even with her lack of promoting she is still selling!

      Make sense before you type

  74. Yolo March 24, 2014

    And Unapologetic has still not sold 4 million. And you have not posted a receipt.

  75. Del Bey March 24, 2014

    But do you not act in the very same manner towards others? told ya’ll I sterilized my scalpel

    • Del Bey March 24, 2014


  76. ozzyone March 24, 2014

    My fav would’ve sold more than that boo, are u going to tell me she would’ve done those numbers had she released it the traditional way? Ofcourse not! Singles do help sales, look at katy perry for example

    • slay_hive March 24, 2014

      LOL your fave can barely cross the 300k mark first week with her generic hits! GET REAL!

  77. Yolo March 24, 2014

    I’m not here for the ‘gimmick’ excuse. Last year she was tired, washed up and nobody was checking for her anymore she shouldn’t be selling by that logic. Look at gaga, gimmicks for the Gods and no one cares.

  78. Yolo March 24, 2014

    Ozzyone. Where is that receipt?

    • ozzyone March 24, 2014

      You have hands, go check wikipedia and IFPI

      • slay_hive March 24, 2014

        you post it! We know the truth. We want you to back these lies!! LOL

  79. Del Bey March 24, 2014


    • ozzyone March 24, 2014

      OMG I’m obsessed with song, do u know when the next album is coming?

      • Del Bey March 24, 2014

        I think its predicted for the first half of this year, but nothing has been confirmed, its also going to be name ‘Ultraviolence’

    • Rosie March 24, 2014

      Gods & Monsters and American are my two favorites.
      Also maybe Cola.
      I don’t know, it’s hard to pick just one.

      • Del Bey March 24, 2014

        Yes I love all 3 so much, I was tweeting ‘my p**** taste like pepsi cola’ for a whole month, and I’m a male so you can imagine the awkwardness.

  80. Yolo March 24, 2014

    Nope Im asking you to post it. Whats so difficult?

  81. Valerie March 24, 2014

    Unaflop hasn’t sold 4 million. She got a 4 million plaque for shipments. The navy are hypocrites.

  82. lovebird March 24, 2014

    I act whichever way I want but I love the fact that I keep you so pressed and fuming to the point where you read all of my 1 million comments.

  83. lovebird March 24, 2014

    Such dedication though

  84. slay_hive March 24, 2014

    I like how the navy forget Rate R happened when they try to come for 4! LOL

    Calling Beyonce’s new album a “gimmick” Is the most hilarious thing I’ve heard. How was it a guarantee that her album would sell. She took a big risk! Everyone can’t do it. Especially not a has been “FLOP” so make sense IDIOTS!

    • ozzyone March 24, 2014

      Most major artists like bey, riri, katy could easily do this my friend, it’s smart for a flop but doesn’t prove anything…

      • slay_hive March 24, 2014

        LOL Than why do they struggle to reach gold first week with their “hits” and album promo?? None of them even sold over 300 k first week LOL

        How could a “flop” pull this off? I’m still waiting for you to make sense!

      • ozzyone March 24, 2014

        Im not denying beyonce was a successful artist but this mess of album needed this gimmick. Damn, half of it sounded like rejected rihanna tracks that even rita didn’t want

      • slay_hive March 24, 2014

        85 metacritic >>>>>> Your pressed opinion 😉

        This album sounded nothing like Rihanna. Beyonce has always had her lane since DC! #REACH

        Rihanna is a label charater, and is so not genuine. LOL

  85. Del Bey March 24, 2014

    Hunny I visit this sight DAILY, and reading the comments is a part of what I do, I’m a lurker because by the time I get onto this site, you’ve already spewed your dribble all over the comments… so I don’t bother, next

  86. ozzyone March 24, 2014

    Wow looks like my first time commenting on the site left some people really flustered but its okay, your forgiven for ur misinformation.

    • slay_hive March 24, 2014

      Where are your receipts troll?

  87. Valerie March 24, 2014

    But wait. You responded to my comment first. And you still have not posted that receipt.

  88. ozzyone March 24, 2014

    But who’s sells in the long run? my fave. Even releasing albums year after year, the audience eats it up without it feeling overexposed and saturated. That is remarkable.

    • slay_hive March 24, 2014


      So you’re basing this off of ONE under-performing era of Beyonce’s??

      While Rihanna has THREE? LOL

      oh ok

      • ozzyone March 24, 2014

        What three? other than her first album, she’s done amazingly well

      • slay_hive March 24, 2014

        Her 1st, second and rated R!

        What other album can you come for other 4 boo?….I’ll wait! kii

    • ashley March 24, 2014

      It’ll be even more remarkable if Rihanna could finally get her second double platinum album in the U.S. 13 #1 hits. It’s about time right?

      • ozzyone March 24, 2014

        B**** sit down in a corner “ashley”, let the grown ups talk. As for u, Rated R was a success as well as AGLM. Both albums sold well and spawned number 1’s like rude boy and S.O.S unlike 4 and Beyonce

      • ashley March 24, 2014

        #1’s lmao. Is that all the navy can comprehend? Why are 4’s WW sales the same without a #1? Why is BEYONCE about to be double paltinum in the U.S. without a #1 unlike Loud, TTT, and UNA? lmao

      • ashley March 24, 2014

        Rihanna should have no problem selling 1 Million first week with all of the exposure and features she’s done recently. If she doesn’t, she will be dragged with not an ounce of mercy!

      • ashley March 24, 2014

        I guess Beyonce held a gun to the 3 Million+ people’s head and made them purchase her album without even hearing a lead single first. lmao. If you haven’t noticed the hive invests money in albums. Not 1.29 singles. A shame that Rihanna’s singles outsell her albums. Ya’ll should focus on getting her that double platinum album. It’s time lmao

        Can’t wait to see Rihanna next album sales

    • ozzyone March 24, 2014

      I’m sorry, are you in need of ESL classes with ur fav? Listen b****, a gimmick is responsible for those sales and not because people wanted it. And with all these “sales”, you’d think her fans could spend $1.29 on a single but no. She would’ve clawed her way to barely platinum without it.

      • ashley March 24, 2014

        I guess Beyonce held a gun to the 3 Million+ people’s head and made them purchase her album without even hearing a lead single first. lmao.

    Girl don’t try to backpedal now, you’ve already admitted that you’ve dedicated most of your time on this site reading my comments.

  90. Del Bey March 24, 2014

    Oh Huntyyyyyy your IQ is obviously very low because you did not pick up my shade, a million as in how many units lana is about the sell in the us, please do NOT flatter yourself

    • Del Bey March 24, 2014


  91. ozzyone March 24, 2014

    I’m sorry, do u need a minute?

  92. Skyfall March 24, 2014

    I still prefer Lorde to Lana but I like both, I hope that Ultraviolence does good numbers, but there’s still many people in America that still doesn’t know her.

    • JOHNVIDAL March 24, 2014

      I like both too. They make haunting music and are very involved in the musical process. Not being the best live singers doesn´t take away their other talents from them. On the other hand there are some completely talentless people out there 🙂

  93. Slayty Perry (Birthday is coming) March 24, 2014

    I can’t with Artpop still not being pass 700k! Thanks for the laugh TGJ, but she’s not going platinum. I expect Iggy to rise next week since Fancy is rising on radio.

  94. JOHNVIDAL March 24, 2014

    TGJ posts are pathetic!
    What´s the point of mentioning one artist´s domestic album sales to date (Lana) next to other two artists worldwide sales (Lorde and Katy), in the same sentence? So incoherent! Wannabe journalists or just biased and uneducated people writing this.

  95. Music lover March 24, 2014

    I think Gaga’s art was only forced and overthought after the fame monster. Oh well. She’s still talented though. No one is perfect. She’ll still be getting paid and u will still sit on your fat a*** hating with no payroll, bum.

  96. Music lover March 24, 2014

    That last comment was for LDN loser.

  97. Music lover March 24, 2014

    Art Pop isn’t platinum cuz Gaga took a break since December and hasn’t been promoting it nor releasing sinles or music vids from it. On the day of the release there was hardly any hype either. Yes, the sales are mediocre. She’ll think of a way to get back on top though. Maybe it just takes time.

    • excuses March 24, 2014

      excuses excuses. after doing vma’s , youtube awards, the voice and american music awards. Remix with Christina, she should be way ahead in album sales. She promoted her enitre album at itunes festival before it was released. gaga fans are such sore losers lol she is just a flop. no one is here for her garbage edm pop. her career is in decline

  98. MusicLover101 March 24, 2014

    R u kidding me? Y’all seriously waste this much time having arguments about an artist, their sales, relevancy, fashion, Etc? You people obviously have a LOT of spare time in your lives to waste this much time on nonsense like this. Just enjoy the damn music and stop being little shits and dragging everything and throwing the world FLOP everywhere like it’s a damn ball!!

    • shut up b**** March 24, 2014

      shut up b****! These people have a right to do what they please with their time and keyboards! you must be a b***-hurt gaga fan lmao

      • Music lover March 24, 2014

        B****, people with actual lives have better things to do than be butthurt by idiots that spend all day on this irrelevant ass blog site. F*** on this site count their fave’s sales like their lives depend on it day in and day out. That’s y I don’t come on this drama filled site all the time. I already know Gaga came and slayed so she will be remembered. What about you?? Who cares if she’s reaching a low point in her career like it doesn’t happen to everyone at some point. Get your life, Get a life, and get a job and stop worrying about the next b**** who is more impactful than you will ever be in your lifetime.

  99. Music lover March 24, 2014

    Excuses, and you can just kiss my ass cuz everyone has at least ONE bad era and are sore losers too like Rihanna fans that are always saying she’s the best thing since sliced bread yet has some of the most basic sales in the industry!!! Only thing that makes up for that is her number 1’s, sweetie. I defend Gaga cuz at least she is the creative force behind her artistry and she’s talented. Go f*** yourself.

  100. Fran March 24, 2014

    Gaga has promoted since December what kind if lies? Did she not just get vomited on the other day for example ?

  101. Fran March 24, 2014

    She went quiet, because it was FLOPPING. it’s not flopping because she went quiet. She’s trying to figure her next move.

  102. Music lover March 24, 2014

    Fran, she did major appearances and promo prior to december. Mind you Applause was not a big enough hit for people to really care so they moved on. DWUW wasn’t that popular either anyway. And yeah you bring up a show she RECENTLY got vomited on and sparked controversy. Who cares. She wasn’t putting herself out there like Miley with publicity stunts NON STOP every month.

    • Leebe March 24, 2014

      Yes three month ins the top 10 and 6 million copies odf applause sold WW. WOW what a flop….like a prayer and Holiday sold the same as that! Top 10 in 70 countries….wow you guys have high standards. She doesn’t have to reach number 1 and sell a billion copies to prove herself don’t be soo narrow minded and petty.

  103. Leebe March 24, 2014

    600,000 is pathetic? a director, writer, activist, Singer, pianist has 5 grammy’s and 160 million records is pathetic. I guess I would be jealous of that like you hence your comment 🙂

  104. Leebe March 24, 2014

    You people me sick, Music is not about sales or number ones or who is better then the other. Jesus it’s like cults fighting! get a grip and get some fresh air. Stop hating on people just because you want to let your anger out because daddy use to beat you, you were r**** or whatever s*** you have had to deal with. free yourself in the music.

  105. BEYAWNCE March 25, 2014


  106. whoiam March 25, 2014

    your right music is more than sales & charts but sales & charts keep artists on record labels to make more music just ask the artists who have been dropped in the last 6 months for bad sales. Making music is not free.
