    Congrats to Rihanna and the others.

    • Oh baby(Bishes will deal) April 25, 2014

      and queen Bey sits in her throne unbothered gazing at her TIME magazine MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE COVER! I highly doubt itunes/download SINGLES positions even matter to her. Atleast her name appears twice on the list,regardless of position,it’s still a lot more than some girls i won’t mention(til provoked).

      • Oh Baby(B****** Will Bow Down And Deal) April 25, 2014

Yes,I agree the cover was not her best shot in the shoot,but she still looks good and the main point is she made the cover that your favs cane only dream about making!

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014


      • Beys us April 24, 2014

        Hit a nerve?

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

        My bad. I read your comment incorrectly. I thought you were shading Rihanna. #sorry . Proceed…

    • FreeNFair April 25, 2014

      This is the first time I have ever commented on this site, though I have regularly followed it for few years. Over the years I have noticed a heavy swaying of all news reportage towards some artists, and against some others. Seeing the way people ‘come for’ and ‘drag’ each other over opinions and comments has stopped me from ever putting up my own opinion, but I now feel I must.What you have said is also something that was glaring on the list. Though Rihanna’s name appeared on the list several times before Beyonce (whose name appeared just once), the headline would make one believe that Beyonce was leading the pack. While I adore both ladies,I question whether my beloved ‘thatgrapejuice’ is not turning into a pro-Beyonce fansite, rather than staying true to reporting relevant music news :-/

      • Oh baby(Bishes will deal) April 25, 2014

        her name appeared twice,Beyonce thatis,but proceed…

  6. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT April 24, 2014

    YASS congrats ladies and @molly stay pressed GURL

    • Molly April 24, 2014

      Never pressed babe.

  7. OrangeJuiceInstead April 24, 2014

    Congrats to all three. But especially Beyonce & Rihanna! So happy for them.

  8. Beys us April 24, 2014

    Explains why TGJ decided to post a link rather than the full list. SMH

  9. Barbie’s World April 24, 2014

    Congrats are in order for these music Queens.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

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

    • Beys us April 24, 2014


  13. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

    Mariah is a legend. Nicki is a peasant who flopped on her second album.

    • Bionic Bonnie April 24, 2014

      But sis, where is Mariah’s name on the list? facts don’t lie…

  14. Bionic Bonnie April 24, 2014

    What about the good sis Ciara? did anyone spot her name on the list anywhere? her last stan seems to think it has a valid opinion on anyone relevant.

  15. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT April 24, 2014

    @Futureciara and @molly stop your embarrassing yourselves

    Not cute.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

      I agree… But your fave is still a lesser.

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

        Be sure to buy Mimi’s album in when it comes out. We already know it will flop but just be ready cuz you will get dragged.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

        Who gon’ drag me boo?

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

        All the posters on this damn site! You spew way to much venom with your hating ass

  16. Mark111 April 24, 2014

    Why is Rihanna is all up and down this chart and Beyonce is at 87 and 99. Barely on the effing list! But she supposed to be superior? Ha!

  17. LOL April 24, 2014



  18. Kelly Kelly April 24, 2014

    I’m telling you, there’s no wifi by the laundramats that 80% of beyonce’s fan bases hang out at hence the t***** being near the bottom of the barrel

  19. Skyfall April 24, 2014

    If Rihanna made a compilation of all her #1s with one or two new songs like Mariah did, that would absolutely destroy the charts

  20. Kelly Kelly April 24, 2014

    Haha not the flopga having 3 songs in the top 40 of this list and t********* in the bottom 10

  21. Skyfall April 24, 2014

    I find it funny how Someone like you outsold Rolling in the deep in the UK and vice versa in America. It shows the difference in musical taste between the two countries

    • Mark111 April 24, 2014

      10 years ago it was the other way around. All this EDM crap is from the UK. Just like the US was full of jazz, rock and soul until the Beatles aka the Roaches came over. Boy band alway make it big in the UK before the US as well. So no, we just get all the UK shits ever once in a while.

      • Dom Dom April 25, 2014

        That’s not Skyfall meant, silly h**. Reading and comprehension clearly aren’t your strong points.

  22. RDK April 24, 2014

    Congratz to Beyonce,Rihanna and Nicki.

  23. Fran April 24, 2014

    @Mark111 iBeyonce doesn’t need singles stats to make her seem superior or solidify her status like your fav needs Huffington Posg said it best:

    ‘Beyoncé landed at the top of the TIME 100, TIME Magazine’s annual list most influential people. Hailed as the first “Titan” mentioned and the issue’s cover star, Beyoncé was lauded for breaking all the rules in the music biz and championing women’s rights to lead.

    In keeping with TIME’s tradition of casting cultural icons to write affectionate blurbs about the honorees, founder Sheryl Sandberg wrote the ode to Beyoncé. “Beyoncé doesn’t just sit at the table. She builds a better one,” she wrote.

    Beyoncé’s whirlwind 2013 centered around dropping her self-titled LP in complete secrecy in December. She ran a sold out Mrs. Carter Show world tour, was a full-time mom and became the leading voice in support of women in pop culture and music. “Her answer to the question, What would you do if you weren’t afraid? appears to be ‘Watch me. I’m about to do it,'” Sandberg wrote. “Then she adds, ‘You can, too.'”

    Her husband Jay Z was labeled a “Titan” last year and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg sang his praises, adding, “He even put a ring on Beyoncé.” The couple is set to continue music domination and will embark on a major summer tour together, the Mr. And Mrs. Carter Tour.

    Bey also nabbed a spot on the list last year, where she was then labeled as an “Icon.” In the article written by director Baz Lurhmann, he complimented her work ethic and warmth. “When Beyoncé does an album, when Beyoncé sings a song, when Beyoncé does anything, it’s an event, and it’s broadly influential,” he wrote. “Right now, she is the heir-­apparent diva of the USA — the reigning national voice.”

    Only a year later and Beyoncé is no one’s heir-apparent. She’s pop music’s queen.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

      Save the essay Hun. #ZeroFucksGiven

      • Frans April 24, 2014

        Its not an essay its an article and no one asked you to read it so why are you here?

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

        Your fault for posting it while I’m present. Next.

      • Fran April 24, 2014

        Ok and? Who are you?

    • LOL April 24, 2014



      • Fran April 24, 2014

        Is that all you people can say when you can’t find a logical response? Its getting boring. Beyonce has sold past 3 million. Its over the 3 million mark so what are you talking about?

    • beyugly April 24, 2014

      Lmao I stopped at single stats…b**** nobody got time for that long ass scroll..king Bey should be slaying Rihanna in all formats including singles sales if she is all that

      • Vee April 24, 2014

        What formats is she slaying her at? Its not albums, not Touring, not acclaim so what is it?

      • beyugly April 24, 2014

        Rihanna is the most watched artist on YouTube, has the most followers, she has the most Vogue covers, biggest selling singles, both of their album sales are average..beyugly doesn’t sell big numbers… her tour is huge right now but look how long it took her to get her biggest tour…Rihanna is 26 years old.Bey she have.more views than Rihanna if she is that big.

      • Vee April 24, 2014

        Death. Slaying everything worth less than $2.
        My point exactly. Beyonce only released her SECOND album on her 26th birthday of course rihanna will have more to her name. Navy logic smh.

      • Starr April 26, 2014

        LMAO. The logic you people use to measure success. Im so happy that Rihanna has a few singles and features on a list of digital downloads. The fact that Rihanna has MORE songs and MORE albums as she saturates herself in the market. You do know that people TURN DOWN magazine covers clearly Rihanna needs all the cash she can get. And with allllll of this, she still has not outsold Beyonce in the ALBUM arena; keep those $1.29 hoop dreams going. How has Beyonce already outsold Unapologetic… lol. Just understand and accept that no matter how many video views or singles downloaded and albums NOT purchased. Beyonce is still going to best Rihanna in the areas that really matter. Let’s pray Rihanna can get a SECOND #1 album out of 8 or wont have to cancel tour dates this time around.

  24. Lovebird April 24, 2014

    Rihanna has more entries on that list than those other two LOCAL whores.

    FLOPtition tumbling down the charts faster than FLOP coast whilst looking ass flop failing to chart anywhere.

  25. Bionic April 24, 2014

    Lol only Rihanna fans find this kind of thing impressive. *Exits posts*

  26. Lovebird April 24, 2014

    Beyonce doesn’t need singles and yet she roles them out per album like a Nicki Minaj wig collection (she’s getting sued for this lmao).

    The ONLY reason the hive try to shade Rihanna based on singles success is because BEYONCE CANNOT GET A HIT (she’s been trying for 6 years now).

    • Fran April 24, 2014

      Drunk In Love was a hit though.

    • FutureCIARA April 24, 2014

      I like how you snuck that lawsuit in there!!!


  27. Skyfall April 24, 2014

    Rihanna – 6 entries
    Adele – 4 entries
    Lady Gaga – 3 entries
    Katy Payola – 3 entries
    Beyoncé – 2 entries
    Nicki Minaj – 1 entire

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

      DEATH!! Nicki and Beyonce at the bottom as usual. #Lessers

  28. Lovebird April 24, 2014

    And since we are on the UK, how many 1 million+ selling albums does Beyonce have there? Rihanna has 3 (LOUD, TTT, GGGB).

    In fact LOUD is nearing the 2 million sold mark,

    • Vee April 24, 2014

      Dangerously In Love and I am Sasha Fierce have both sold 1+ million in the UK.
      Rihanna has 4/7 while Beyonce has 2/5 SAME RATIO mathmetician.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

        DIL was released in 2003 though. Next..

      • Vee April 24, 2014


      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

        You Beyonce Stans always talking about others using “past receipts” yet here you are doing the same. #TheStruggle

      • Vee April 24, 2014

        He asked how many 1+ million albums she has and I gave an answer so wtf does being in the past have to with anything?

  29. Lovebird April 24, 2014

    Drunk in love was a hit where? In the ghetto clubs of Houston maybe but certainly not anywhere else. Are you counting streams now?

    I’m talking about a REAL HIT.

    • Oh baby(Bishes will deal) April 25, 2014

      umm,the song was number 2 on Billboard,it charted higher than R****’s second single from Unflop (Stay) so yeah,it was definitely a hit in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. it was in the top 5 in South Africa,Lebanon,Belgium and Australia as well as top 10 in France,Ireland,New Zealand and the UK so let’s not….

  30. Mark111 April 24, 2014

    It’s Kill A Bey Stan day again. Lol

    • Vee April 24, 2014

      Whag do you want F** some pom poms to go with that cheerleading?

  31. Vee April 24, 2014

    Why is this b**** going off. Beyonces UK stats are fine didn’t she sell like almost 200,000 tickets in just LONDON.
    And she doesn’t need to churn out 7 albums like wild fire to add to quantity.

  32. Lovebird April 24, 2014

    Gurl read, I asked how many 1 million+ selling albums does Beyonce have in the UK?

    • Vee April 24, 2014

      Sis the only one having trouble reading is you. DIL and IASF have both sold 1+ million so she has 2.

  33. LOL April 24, 2014



    • Vee April 24, 2014

      You still have not answered my question. Why is Gaga getting outsold by Miley.

      • LOL April 26, 2014



  34. Lovebird April 24, 2014

    This album has already run out of steam, hence the desperation of releasing flopping hurts, endless magazine covers and paid for accolades.

    The hive counted their chickens before the eggs hatched.

    • Vee April 24, 2014

      The only one counting chickens is you. You have a knack of being proved wrong. Rated R acclaim, no Top 10, Album NEVER coming ring a bell.

    • beyugly April 24, 2014

      Lmaoo death!! Why is t********* still releasing singles if the album is not meant for single success( according to Hives) and she doesn’t need them??

      • Vee April 24, 2014

        Because its an era dumbass

  35. King_rico April 24, 2014

    B**** ur fave is a has been
    GTFO with those ancient receipts
    Anything B.C doesn’t count in this generation
    And lets not talk about her voice it’s been gone
    For a min.
    The only pressed one here is u.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

      Pressed @ the queen’s golden pipes and slayage I see? #BowDown

  36. Lovebird April 24, 2014

    And still this surprise album hasn’t outsold a girl like me in the UK, and looking at what it’s selling now, will not.

  37. Vee April 24, 2014

    DEATH @ it comparing Beyonce to AGLM sales. How long ago did that s*** come out?

    • LOL April 26, 2014



  38. Vee April 24, 2014

    And theres a reply button. Only basic b****** need to post separte comments to make it seem like they’re dragging smh.

  39. Stephy April 24, 2014

    Rihanna: Sold 20,000,000+ Records In The UK

    Madonna: Sold 30,000,000+ Records In The UK

    Rihanna is about to snatch Madonna’s wig for the best selling female artist in the UK.

    Them singles be adding up like shitt tho…

    Rihanna the SINGLES queen!

  40. Stephy April 24, 2014

    Why are the UK sales sooo low…

    Yall aint got nothing on us AMERICANS!!!

    America still remains the LARGEST market in the music industry…

    The Beatles sold 75% of thier records in AMERICA ALONE!

  41. Lovebird April 24, 2014

    Stephy, I know you’re not going to forget TTT is one of the highest first week selling albums in the UK by a female artist (not Beyonce).

    I know you’re not forgetting LOUD is about to cross the 2 million sold mark in the UK (Dangerously in love hasn’t passed that mark, and that came out when album sales were strong and off the hype of DC).

    Singles queen? More like MULTI-PLATFORM QUEEN.

  42. Lovebird April 24, 2014

    The US has a higher GDP and purchasing power per capita than the UK, that’s why.

  43. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

    Mariah’s golden pipes >>>> your fave’s rusty strings

    • FutureCIARA April 24, 2014

      Self dragging much???

  44. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 24, 2014

    Death at Beyoncé and Nicki being lessors to gaga and Rihanna. Hippo only local, poor dat

  45. Just Sayin April 24, 2014

    Dead the Navy must be in their glory with their cute little UK stats. Meanwhile Beyonce has outsold Rihannas entire discography in the biggest music market in the world with less albums.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

      Point? Rih still sold more records… In less time.

      • Just sayin April 24, 2014

        Rihanna sold more records than bey with how many albums in that time slayriah?

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

        Rih’s record sales were still higher than Bey’s before Unapologetic though…

      • Just sayin April 24, 2014

        And she still had more albums then.

    • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 24, 2014

      On my way! our fave has only 5 million ahead of Rihanna in the states but sis please tell how much she did in Japan or Uk, or Germany or France? I’ll wait

      • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 24, 2014

        Oh wow your***

      • Just sayin April 24, 2014

        You tell me?

  46. Stephy April 24, 2014

    Yes, LovelyBird! I can admit that Rihanna is an ALBUM seller in the UK ONLY!

    Those little ass number are so small to our American eyes. But in the UK selling a million albums there is like selling 5 million albums in America. So, YES she is an ALBUM seller IN THE UK!!!

  47. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 24, 2014

    Where’s floptiton?

    • Oh baby(Bishes will deal) April 25, 2014

      where is What now?

  48. Lovebird April 24, 2014

    Gurl, Lorde is selling more albums per week than Beyonce. You guys were hyped about it doing Adele numbers but it’s now doing Katy Payola numbers

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

      Lol they said it would be diamond yet it hasn’t even crossed 2 million yet in MONTHS! #PoorThemAndTheFlopAssFave

      • Oh baby(Bishes will deal) April 25, 2014

        LOL! Not a Mariah and R**** fan talking about not having crossed the 2 million mark. Has Rihanna ever had an album sell more than 2.5 million in the States alone? I’ll wait,even her relative hit album which was eons ago,GGGB still hasn’t sold that. Mariah,none of her recent albums(the last 2,3 including this upcoming one) have crossed the 1 million mark. They stale at the 500k mark. YOU GUYS HAVE NO SAY! Watch the MOST INFLUENTIAL Artist SLAY! Biggest grossing tour by a black(female) Artist EVER! Mariah will never,Rihanna can only DREAM!

    • LOL April 26, 2014




  49. Stephy April 24, 2014

    Hmmmm Why Oh Why are people calling Queen Beyonce Local? The woman is very very very successful outside of America. Not as much as Gaga or Rihanna (due to the fact that she is not trying to make white peoples party music) but she is NOT local.

    To be honest, none of our (USA) pop stars are local. Only our (USA) COUNTRY stars are local.

    1.) Shania Twain

    2.) Garth Brooks

    3.) Taylow Swift

    are very local compared too Beyonce, Mariah, Gaga & other USA made pop stars…

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

      Beyonce is local. She sold 1.9 million in the US and barely 3 million worldwide. Those are local stats Hun. Like I said in the previous post, only Lana, Rihanna, and Adele sell really well worldwide.

      • Stephy April 24, 2014

        Slayriah, STOP BEING DELUSIONAL! Im not talking about her last album. Im ting about her career AS A WHOLE!

        Beyonce is NOT local. Also, why is the UK the place to be considered un-local. Beyonce is extremely successful in lots of other countries as well.

        If the UK’s success dicides whether or not USA stars are local or not then Mimi is very local cause Beyonce has outsold Mimi in the UK…

  50. Stephy April 24, 2014

    Question: Is Rihanna a USA made Pop star? Since, she did come to AMERICA to start her career. Hmmm

    • Hadley April 24, 2014

      Yes it does. Her label is based in the US.

  51. Lovebird April 24, 2014

    How is Rihanna not an album seller when she sells in less a time what favs take years to sell. LOUD sold in one year what TD and IASF took 2-3 years to sell. And even though LOUD has not sold more copies than IASF, she achieved huge numbers in a shorter time.

    Whilst 4 took 3 years to sell 2.8 million, Rihanna sold 6.8 million albums in the same time span. How is she not an album seller again? Just because she also slays in singles (something Beyonce cannot do), is the most streamed artist on Spotify/Pandora/Vevo/YouTube (Beyonce cannot), is selling out stadiums (Beyonce wasn’t selling out stadiums at Rih’s age nor did she have a $100 mill+ tour) the only thing that stands out is singles, which you try to diminish simply because Beyonce can never.

    • beyugly April 24, 2014

      Because the hives look at her singles success which takes away from the albums…They are dumb..GGGB came out of no where and snatch wigs.

  52. Hadley April 24, 2014

    You American idiots need to shut up you don’t know anything. I am from the UK and Beyonce is NOT local. She is just as big and respected as rihanna here. Of course Rihanna is going to sell more in a European market she makes more POP music. Beyonce barely comes to the UK which is why we went crazy over her Tour.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014


      • Hadley April 24, 2014

        Beyonce has sold more single than Mariah in the UK without the 90s though sit down no one cares for her here.

        Who ares about the irrelevant ass UK? Mariah has bigger worldwide success than B*****. Bye!

      • Hadley April 24, 2014

        Beyoncs is bigger than Mariah in Africa, Brazil and the UK to name a few. And you can post all Mariahs 90s achievments all you want. Beyonce was not at her peak then.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

        Mariah has the longest running #1 single in Brazil so keep quiet.

        + Mariah shitss all over B***** in North America, Asia, Australia, and Europe.

      • Hadley April 24, 2014

        And when was that #1? Beyonce still shits in her there statistics doesn’t reflect your cultural impact all the time in a country. This is why people like you need to stop being so closed minded around receipts. Mariah was bigger than her IN THE 90s. Not anymore.

    • LOL April 26, 2014




  53. Lovebird April 24, 2014

    Stephy stop please, Rude boy is not white people party music and it slayed everywhere. Man down is not white people party music and yet it was a bigger hit in France than any Beyonce single there.

    Jump is not white people music and yet it topped the charts in NZ and Aus off of word of mouth alone, something Beyonce cannot do. Save the excuses.

    • Vee April 24, 2014

      And Beyonce has topped the album charts more times than Rihanna in Australia and South Africa so what?

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

        Mariah has 6 #1 albums in Japan.

      • Vee April 24, 2014

        Who cares about her?

    • Vee April 24, 2014

      Rihanna is so global, why can she not even go Diamond in Brazil?

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

        DEATH @ you clinging to that one irrelevant diamond plaque in Brazil! Crying @ the reach.

      • Vee April 24, 2014

        It is basic but why cant Rihanna get it?

  54. Hadley April 24, 2014

    Local = Rita Whora and Cheryl Cole.

    You need to stop throwing that word around. Beyonce is an international Popstar! She is a household name across the world.

    You are the FIRST fan base to get offended when people call Rihanna a singles artist, well its pott meets kettle!

  55. Stephy April 24, 2014

    LovelyBird, very true. I guess you have clocked my tea there. Welp, I guess Miss Rihanna is loved by everyone huh? She does go number 1 in more countries around the world even when the saong are terrible. She is a SINGLES queen. But albums Queen NOPE! She should be selling 10+ million albums per album tbh…

    • beyugly April 24, 2014

      10 million albums?? Album sales are down..Nobody is selling 10 million nowadays…people download albums for free..

  56. Stephy April 24, 2014

    Rihanna is selling like she does because of her Island accent & Pop Tone. She (her TEAM) gives her great catchy material & she sells it very well threw sexual/demonic content. She captured the world threw her looks, accent & YOUTUBE! Her (Writters/Producers) music is extremely catchy & fun. But LoveBird, she is NOT a REAL artist just remember that…

  57. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 24, 2014

    If Rihanna is selling 3 million plus an album them that makes you an album seller if you are a singles queen then your album sales won’t go past gold. Learn your s*** dumbasses

    • Hadley April 24, 2014

      And if you are local you wont be going platinum and selling out in countries across the world.

  58. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 24, 2014

    I forgot to add that Mariah also slays Bey in France.

  59. Rih Rox April 24, 2014

    If beyFATce didn’t care about singles….then why is she releasing countless of them?

    • Hadley April 24, 2014

      Um because she has fans?

      • beyugly April 24, 2014

        Lmaoo save the damn excuses

      • Hadley April 24, 2014

        Is not an excuse its an answer. Why is Beyonce not performing her singles all over the place if she cares so much? Why is she holidaying instead.

      • Rih Rox April 24, 2014

        She’s trying to land that number 1 spot…she’s been miserably trying for 6 years.

      • Just sayin April 24, 2014

        So why isn’t she promoting it?

    • beyugly April 24, 2014

      Because she knows they will flop like 4 singles…what’s the point when she has 17 free music videos that her fans can eat up???

      • Hadley April 24, 2014

        You just contradicted yourself. She wouldnt have put 17 videos on her album if she cared that much about singles.

      • LOL April 26, 2014



  60. Stephy April 24, 2014

    Anyways, congrats to Rihanna! She is the biggest pop star in the world RIGHT NOW in terms of SINGLES success.

    As for Mariah Carey & Beyonce Worldwide accomplishments.

    Mariah Carey: Sold 20,000,000+ Records In Japan ALONE

    Beyonce has NEVER dominated another country/island like that outside of America BYE

  64. Stephy April 24, 2014

    Mariah Carey has also outsold Beyonce in Australia, Canada, Mexico, South Africa, France, Germany, Italy, Romania, Brazil, Spain, Switszerland & Poland amoung other countries…

    • Just sayin April 24, 2014

      Obviously she came out in the 1990s. Step into 2014

      • Stephy April 24, 2014

        In 2014, Mariah is being outsold by Beyonce. But so is Patti, Aretha, Stevie & Michael Jackson BYE!

        That still does not mean anything. After only 9 years into her career she has almost sold just as much records (mostly SINGLES) in most countries & surpassed all legedns in the UK. RIHANNA of course so stop it

      • Just sayin April 24, 2014

        So whats your point comparing 90s standard sales to todays ones?

      • Stephy April 24, 2014

        My point is Marih has worldwide success just like Beyonce… THATS MY POINT!!!!!!!!

  65. Tara April 24, 2014

    Damn do any of you get tired of the whole Beyonce vs Rihanna thing?
    At the end of the day Beyonce has more acclaim than any current singer in this generation,while Def Jam has brought more singles and airplay than any label in history.
    Why else do you think Riri is murking Beyonce in singles but not an actual tour, same with Mimi, Katy and other queens of payola. You can use album/single sales all you want, the only way to really tell nowadays that the general public is interested is if they buy your concert tickets.
    Rihanna isn’t touching Beyonce in the talent,touring or acclaim department, Beyonce isn’t touching Rihanna in fashion,social media presence or singles.
    Can we please move on TGJ? It’s not 2009 anymore.
    Also Billboard,Forbes,Time,Pitchfork opinions> Yours..stop trying to discredit that woman and let her live.

  66. Stephy April 24, 2014

    Beyonce has only sold 40+ million records in the United States Of America

    Rihanna has sold 71+ million records in the United States Of America…

    Madonna has sold a CERTIFIED 88+ million records in USA (Estimated 100+ due to 80s sales being lost)

    Mariah has sold 90+ CERTIFIED million records in USA (Estimated 100+ due to her first album singles & album sales being lost)

    • Vee April 24, 2014

      Girl shut up one minute you’re bandwagoning for Beyonce calling her the biggest and dragging Rihanna next you’re on Rihanna c***. Rihanna has 7 damn albums do the math. Beyonce outsold her albums in the US with less albums.

    • whut April 26, 2014

  67. FutureCIARA April 24, 2014

    I dont understand why some people are still turning a blind eye towards the BLATANT receipts that I provide, regarding Bey not giving Future writing credits!!!!

    Here is the complete article & VIDEO proof!
    www. lovebscott .com/news/future-says-wrote-melody-beyonces-drunk-love-doesnt-know-didnt-get-credit
    There’s been a lot of confusion surrounding the similarities between Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love” and Future’s “Good Morning.” We’ve seen Future briefly address the situation — but he never fully explained what went down.
    In an interview with CRWN host Elliott Wilson, Future attempted to clear up the controversy.
    “Detail came to the studio like. He cut the music off – ‘Man I’m about to work with Beyoncé. Can you please do this record man? She like the way you do yo’ songs’ ..and she this and that. We were working so much together, he ended up getting me to do it.
    He put me in the booth. The song was already pre-wrote. I started doing the little melody – my melody that you can pretty much tell from “Turn on The Lights.”
    If you listen to the records these are the same melodies I’ve been doing — “Never End,” “Turn Off The Lights”. If you go back to my mixtapes you hear my melody all over it — so it wasn’t that issue.
    It was just, he was working with her, ended up cutting the record first & gave it to her. We had did the record about 8 months before she put it out.”
    He goes on to say that during that time, he made “Good Morning” thinking Beyoncé wasn’t ever going to put “Drunk in Love ” out — but she did and thus “Good Morning” was scrapped.
    Still unclear as to whether or not Future wrote anything on “Drunk in Love,” Elliott Wilson points out that both songs feature the line “we be all night” and Future clarifies that everything was written around the same time.
    Elliott : “Why aren’t you properly credited for that song and why can’t you just put yours out?”
    Future: “I don’t know. You gotta ask them that. I was like ‘Let me put “Good Morning” out since y’all put “Drunk in Love” out’. [They were] like ‘nah’”
    Elliott: “But you weren’t credited on ‘Drunk In Love’”
    Future: “Nope. That’s why they won’t let me put it out *laughs*”

    • FutureCIARA April 24, 2014

      J & B are really living up to the Thievery ass Bonnie & Clyde title…. I wont fully respect her until she starts giving credit where credit is DUE!!!!!

      Like why fukking lie, cheat and steal!!!

  68. Revolution April 24, 2014

    Beyonce local? Lmfao. This is what happens when you spend to much time on blogs and not enough time in reality.
    Shes been the biggest star of this generation for a while now shes watched her 00s peers some and go and now shes still the ranks with (and outdoing) the stars currently peaking (Katy, Rihanna etc) Isn’t that telling you something?

    At the end of the day, Rihanna can sell a billion records but she still won’t be respected. Not as a singer or all round artist. Besides Instagram and the number for her weed supplier she has no control over her career. She is essentially a puppet, I can’t WAIT until I hear a song written solely by her. To be honest, I think you Navy stans should stan for Ester Dean – the real Rihanna lmao

    • beyugly April 24, 2014

      • Magnificent Michael April 24, 2014

        …she got an award for singing songs the label pick out for her whilst getting promoted like crazy because the label know if they do she’ll sell more and they’ll get money off her ass.

    Why is he clinging onto it after his album bombed?
    Why can’t he make another drunk in love? Aloe blac didn’t
    Cling to wake me up after he didn’t get credited, he made
    Another top 10 single. When will future?

    • Kisses Down Low April 24, 2014

      Okay! Not him after Beys money to pay off that ring and child support debt.

    • FutureCIARA April 24, 2014

      First lets address his album bombing allegations when it JUST came out on Tuesday and a full week hasnt even been counted for yet!!

      You sound ignorant as all hell.

      Secondly, there is no doubt in my mind that Future will continue on making hits!!! Look up his credentials, He is a hitmaker first and songwriter
      The Drunk In Love song opened doors for him in the future, which is why he states he is not pressed…….

      Listen to the man speak before you assume these false feelings that he is supposed to have over being b*** hurt about simple credits….
      Thirdly, you stan for a local ass UK artist who works for Simon Cowells flop TV show that got axed in the US…

      No further comments

      • CherylSoldier April 24, 2014

        I’m screaming because you were the first to drag West Coast based on predictions. Also, who is future? When has he had a hit? Why is he literally clinging to Drunk in Love? Cheryl has plenty on hits. In fact, none of her singles have missed the top 20. If you want me to start to Ciara, I can, but Cheryl’s one album single-handedly outsold both Ciara and Future’s last albums. And this is by a “talent show has been.” When will your fav(s) even book a spot on tv? kii

      • FutureCIARA April 25, 2014

        Girl nobody is pressed about Drunken H**………. You are really getting in a tizzy and I WILL NOT waste my time!!!

        He is releasing 2 albums this year, and nobody even knows your f****** fave!

    As the King of all Dance, I have to ask this question. Ciara stans, gather around my shoes and answer me this. Why do you attempt to ‘drag’ successful artists who are prospering and outselling your favourite? Another question, why is it that when Ciara releases new music you don’t buy it?

    I’m curious…

    • FutureCIARA April 24, 2014

      Curious, Why are you trolling under a Michael Jackson name to attempt dragging Ciara!!

      You look insanely pathetic and ignorant as all hell…. Stop disrespecting Michael like that

    Congrats to all….. Same tired A$$ Bey hate. Hive why do y’all waste time with the lessor?

    The Ciara fans are a joke. I see why y’all be so mad(Molly and FutureCiara). Well, Future explained the sequence of events to Angie Martinez on Hot 97 Thursday (March 27). “I recorded the song first, for her, for BEYONCE’… I did the actual ‘Drunk In Love.’ Along with Detail,” he said. “I demoed the record for [Detail] and I put a little twist on it, but at the same time he wrote the record, Detail did write the record.” So what’s all this she stole from future……..DETAIL WROTE IT NOT FUTURE. I understand your hate for Beyonce’ and all but please come with FACTS.

    Rasool Diaz

    Brian Soko


    Beyoncé Knowles

    Drunk in Love, Composers

    Rihanna fans are funny. Keep in mind Rihanna is nothing but a slave for the Carter’s and the Navy knows this!!!!!(We keep y’all MAD and Pressed)

    Attn all Beyonce’ HATERS. Are you mad or Nah? At the end of the Day y’all can say what you please about her, but it don’t change the facts.

    She’s the boss

    Beyoncé doesn’t just sit at the table. She builds a better one. Today she sits at the head of the boardroom table at Parkwood Entertainment.

    In December, she took the world by surprise when she released a new album, complete with videos, and announced it on Facebook and Instagram. Beyoncé shattered music-industry rules — and sales records.

    One song includes words by novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: “We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much.’ ” Beyoncé has insisted that girls “run the world” and declared, “I’m not bossy, I’m the boss.” She raises her voice both on- and offstage to urge women to be independent and lead.

    In the past year, Beyoncé has sold out the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour while being a full-time mother. Her secret: hard work, honesty and authenticity. And her answer to the question, What would you do if you weren’t afraid? appears to be “Watch me. I’m about to do it.” Then she adds, “You can, too.”

  94. Someone April 25, 2014

    Starships is such a horrible song. It’s ashame cuz nicki has better
    songs that deserve to be on that list.

  95. rihanna is bigger than beyonce April 25, 2014


    I will call it out: rita whora, the girl u said will end rig rig, the girl beyonce seems to really like is hovering between 80 – 85 on iTunes,HA! The song has been out for 4 business days and still cannot break into the top 50 iTunes and she has HAD PROMO. THIS IS HER SECOND time in the USA.

    HOW long did it take for SOS to pop? SOS was smash the moment we heard it.

    HA HA HA HA HA Now, she is so desperate, she is going on what happens live on BRAVO; how cheesy,trying to appeal to RHOA crowd.

    Mark my words, blow jobs or not: she is getting dropped.

  96. Lioness April 25, 2014

    I am sick to death of RihYAWNa and Beyonce (though I do like Bey). I hate that the media is so controlled and rigged that only a handful of artists can actially receive entrance into the game. I am bored with the same old two or three people all the dame time.

  97. kim July 12, 2014

    If your talking about album sales.. Beyonce is the first female artist to have all six her first album reach number one.. Beyonce has 6 albums in 11 years and Riherpes has 7 in ten years coz her white rhino looking ass keep releasing albums every year.. Just face it Navy your captain is nothing but Queen B’s Footstool.. #BeyonceBeSlayingTheseHeifers..
