Super power.

That’s exactly what Beyonce is being hailed as following her show-stopping performance at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards.

The superstar diva delivered a dynamite showing of her entire self-titled album. And it appears it wasn’t just the audience in attendance that she delighted. Because, the set – released as a surprise last December – has rocketed back into the top ten of the iTunes US tally.

Details below…

As at writing, ‘Beyonce’ sits at #9 on the Stateside count.

The added sales join the 3.5 million the set has already accumulated worldwide since its release.

There are many ways to win and it seems King B is making a beeline for them all. More power to her!

    Not a huge fan, but this woman right here is in a league of her own! She absolutely murdered the VMA’s, and anyone who says otherwise is a bona-fide hater!

    Finally outselling Unaflopagetic and all the basic pop b****** out there the navy must be seething kii

    • Cupid August 25, 2014

      Unapologetic numbers haven’t been updated since December. So who knows. But this definitely will be a cute increase

    • Stephy. August 25, 2014

      Spill that tea poo’thang

  3. Royalkev August 25, 2014

    Far too often talent and commercial success doesn’t come hand in hand. It’s wonderful when you get to enjoy both from the same artist! Congrats B!

  4. Nope, not here for it August 25, 2014

    Yawnce’s performance was a YAWN. Michael Jacskon would be ashamed she got that award. She uses HEAVY backing tracks and LOTS of reverb to make her voice sound better than it is. She lip synched too, and didn’t even dance that much. So, Sam, what was her excuse for lip synching.
    Best living performer.. How sad for this generation.

    • Stephy. August 25, 2014

      Recycled ass comment from the other post BYE hater!

      • Nope, not here for it August 25, 2014

        Eat $hit, monkey kunnt.

      • Si August 25, 2014

        Why is it that if someone has a different opinion than you and doesn’t think Beyonce is “perfect” then that makes them a hater? People are allowed to have different opinions and that’s ok. It’s beyond childish to think that everyone HAS TO think alike and like the same things.

      • DIGGER BEY August 25, 2014

        Um @ Si….These are the same raggedy biitches that are always hating. They never say anything good about THE QUEEN. So miss us with the BS.

    • cunty August 25, 2014

  5. Iconic Cici August 25, 2014

    So she’s finally gonna outsell Unaflopagetic? kiii still waiting on her to do Adele numbers

    • DIGGER BEY August 25, 2014

      I’m still on somebody to revive Ciara’s career kii kii

      • DIGGER BEY August 25, 2014

        *waiting*

      • Memo August 25, 2014

        Hahaha, dragging Ciara is not an option to Beyoncé not doing Adele’s numbers.

    • Shay August 25, 2014

      You need to just concern yourself with the reality that the only reason Ciara (after her dozen failed attempts at a commercial comeback) hasn’t been dropped is because Epic is using her as a tax write-off. You better hope that they don’t release something else big enough to the point where bothering to hold onto that perpetual Lil John/Bush-era washout becomes even less necessary than it is now.

  6. You don’t see ? August 25, 2014

    Already fell out of it. It’s #11.
    her performance was cute btw, too long (especially from someone who doesn’t know the songs, i didn’t know what i was hearing lol) but the blu ivy moment was cute !

  7. Stephy. August 25, 2014

    I love her. Slay Miss Beyonce!

  8. M August 25, 2014

    Beyoncé’s performance was good, not epic, good. Want to see epic? Watch Michael Jackson’s 1995 VMA Performance.
    Honestly, I was expecting more from her and I am a fan.

  9. M August 25, 2014

    Her performance was good, not epic. Want to see epic? Watch Michael Jackson’s 1995 VMA performance, definition of epic right there.
    Honestly, I was expecting more from Beyoncé and I must say I am a fan.

      Kiss my ass

  10. Beysus August 25, 2014

    She’s ALREADY outsold Unaflopagetic, idiots…

    LOOK AT THE SLAYAGE!!!!

    • Jamie August 25, 2014

      Unapologetic sold 4 million try again

      • Beysus August 25, 2014

        Yes but that’s only WW and it took her a year and a half…
        Bey will easily trump that without the aid of a big single…

    • B. Hill August 25, 2014

      Unaflopagetic barely sold a million in the U.S., and took a YEAR to do that. BEYONCE is RIAA-certified 2x platinum. The US is the biggest and most important music market, and it’s Rihanna’s domestic market…yet Rihanna always struggles to do only barely okay in the land where she’s based! Ha! WW is just extra gravy. America is meat and what matters most!

      • Absolved August 25, 2014

        Rihanna can’t get a multiplatinum album to save her life. She hasn’t seen one since effin 2007! That’s almost 10 years ago. And up to now, her stans would try to use the “well she releases every year, so of course her sales are gonna be cut off” thing as an excuse. But it’s coming up on 2 years since she last released and it’s still sitting at only 1.1 million Stateside. Care to explain Navy? How come after 2 years she’s still only narrowly in platinum in America and only in the 3.5 million range abroad when no other album has come out to c*** block it from doing more than that (which was always a bad excuse BTW.)

      • rita ora can win a oscar August 25, 2014

        AND HER ALBUMS GET DISCOUNTED VERY FAST. I have never bought an Rihanna album on full price. BEYONCE IS THE ONLY ONE IN THE CHARTS AT 15.99. If it was not for Chris brown thing she would not even be around today. Rihwhore is just smoke and mirrors. Style over substance her sack album sales prove it.

        EVEN JLO has sold more albums than Rihanan. RIHANAN DRUGGED UP W**** cannot even do 500K 1st week and she is YOUNG.

  11. Jamie August 25, 2014

    Cool her performance was good but it definitely wasn’t epic i’ve seen better from her. But congrats.

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 26, 2014

  14. Slay_Hive August 25, 2014

    Beyonce murdered that stage last night. ALL of your faves are talking about it. I knew this performance would spike her album sales and hopefully this is the beginning of more promo.

  15. Keri Qween August 25, 2014

    It’ll only be temporary, the performance was average, her fans are easily impressed

    And the way y’all hype her up I thought she would have done like 5 mil

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) August 25, 2014

    She is BEYONCE,QUEEN BEY,YONCE. What ever you want to call her it still equals the same thing she is PHENOMENAL! And to compare her to any artist in History would be to discredit one of the Greatist artist in Music History. BEYONCE IS TRULY A ONE OF A KIND ARTIST!

  23. DIGGER BEY August 25, 2014

    Well its not like she needs to sell anymore albums because she’s already outsold whorres who had more hits and did it within 3 weeks. THE QUEEN owned The BET Awards and now the VMAS. Next up The Grammys. The most awarded female musician alive! I can’t believe I’m witnessing a Great in their prime. She went from star, to superstar, to global superstar, to Global Icon, to Living Legend! #BKC

      I live for Rihanna as well , I don’t believe anyone is threatened babe.

    • Slay_Hive August 25, 2014

      I can say the same about Rihanna stains. Why are they so threatened by Bey?? Is because she has longevity. Or maybe because she can sell WW without the aid of a nes single.. I see Rihanna flopping in the near future.

  28. True that August 25, 2014

    Nobody is threatened by beyonce, rihanna is doing HER thing quite nicely , the roach hive attacks her and her navy defends, there is internet history to prove who started it and it was the insecure roach hive, they are as insecure as their leader. She had been praise and outshining others her white life and can’t deal with competition or shining alongside others. Oh well That Rihanna reign just don’t let up. Can’t wait for R8, for many, beyonce is boring , just deal and leave Rihanna alone..,and Kim too while y’all at it …it’s so not a good look and reeks of desperation , immaturity and envy

    • RICHIE_RICH August 25, 2014

      You sound stupid . I thinks it’s you that reeks of desperation with this long a$$ essay full of nothing.

    • rita ora can win a oscar August 25, 2014

      Rihanan is doing her thing. YEAH she could barely get through the monster tour sober. Now she is back sleeping around doing drugs. What kind of life is that? UNA is not a smash. It has not crosses 5 million in 2 years. HER singles must be payola. R8 won’t do anything for rihanna. It is not gonna 10 mill and it is not gonna show any growth as performer.

      • Memo August 25, 2014

        It’s been 3 years since Beyoncé ”4” and it hasn’t even sold 3.5 million copies.

      • rita ora can win a oscar August 25, 2014

        HA HA HA AS OF 2013 4 sold 3 million and 2014 it has sold 1.41 IN THE USA which means it has outsold RIHANNA’s album.

    • rita ora can win a oscar August 25, 2014

      Rihanan is heading for a Britney style meltdown. BEYONCE AND HER FAMILY will just laugh.

  29. Blacksista August 25, 2014

    I am happy for her she deserves it.

  30. rita ora can win a oscar August 25, 2014

    I left rihanna titanic at the right time. beyonce is better than madonna. She has more talent and is better business woman. Where was rihanna, sleeping around as usual. This time she was f****** Kevin Durant’s friend and doing drugs. I went to the monster tour; she is younger than Bey, but she cannot sing, perform or dance. She will be washed up at 30, just like Britney.

    In terms of Album sales. Rihanan has 1 or 2 payola big radio hits and her albums still flop in the usa and do average WW. How comes UNA did not sell 7 or 8 mill? When they stop playing her on POP RADIO. There goes her career. I see she is back with Drake and Chris; she needs stunts to sell. She cannot sell on talent alone

  31. rita ora can win a oscar August 25, 2014

    Rihanna fans, of which I used to be be one. Are threatened by beyonce, cos she lives a clean, drug free life and has love and family, while there fave has new man and woman in her bed every night. She cancels shows cos she overdoses on PCP and deep down Rihanan annoy know she won’t last past 30. When all the twitter antics, narcissistic fame whoring ( see the world cup ) using Chris and Drake scenario and walking around half nude, when all that gets stale, and it will……..that is her career. When rasp stop playing her cos she is 30.

    BYE BYE H**.

  32. rita ora can win a oscar August 25, 2014

    THE ALBUM OF BEYONC EIS NUMBER 10 AT $ 15.99 unlike Rihanana, it has STILL not be discounted. I told y’all I only copped rihanna albums when they were discounted. Ariana Grande is at $ 12.99; Taylors new joint is at $ 12.99

    I was so happy for beyonce I was crying. She has the best life. AND JAYZ is not even ugly; he just has African features. But, who cares, he is rich and powerful and he can handle her in bedroom and he is loving father. They have it all. Beyonce has what Whitney, mariah , madonna and RIHANNA don’t have.

    Rihwhore is 26 and she is still sleeping around doing drugs. No on wants her. She tried to throw herself at Gerard butler and he sent her packing.

    • Memo August 25, 2014

      Mariah has a legendary status and DIAMOND-certified albums, some things Beyoncé, with all of her ”superstardom”, hasn’t achieved. Stop trying to make us out she’s like the biggest thing when she’s just doing fine.

      • Slay_Hive August 25, 2014

        Diamond album sales doesn’t make you legendary. Just look at Britney Spears. Beyonce is in a league of her own. She is the highest selling African American in the industry. She is also the biggest star in the industry. The haters know it, Bey knows it and your faves! kii 😀

  33. rita ora can win a oscar August 25, 2014

    BEYONCE HA SNOT LEFT THE USA ITUNES CHART AND IS STILL SELLING AT 15.99, the most expensive on the chart. It is not even a year yet. SHE HAS OULSOLD THAT drugged up w**** in the usa and WW. UNA is 3.7 and BEYONCE IS OVER 4 by now. WHEN IT GETS TO DECEMBER, IT WILL BE NEARER 5.

    • Dara August 25, 2014

      • rita ora can win a oscar August 25, 2014

        You are angry cos beyonce has a her mental health in tact, while your fave rihanna is drug addict, bound for rehab and Betty ford. Now what? HA HA HA HA HA

  34. LB (Shanene > Wanda) August 25, 2014

    Well I guess the hive will get their little life, Beyonce might actually outsell Unapologetic (who’s figures haven’t been updated from last they were reported in December).

    But then again the hive are more interested in outdoing Rihanna than they are praising their fav.

    • Slay_Hive August 25, 2014

      Please! The navy has been waiting for Bey to outsell UNAFLOP.. “Why hasn’t Bey outsold UNA yet?”

      Remember that? (Especially you)

      No one is as obsessed about Beyonce more than the navy. The only thing ya’ll can cling to is singles, and those American #1’s do nothing for her American album sales

  36. MariahIsMusic1 August 25, 2014

    Who cares about sales in this decade I stan for talent and people who are future legends.. Mariah Carey may sell poorly now but she’s already a legend and built her mark based on god gifted Talent same applies to Whitney, Mahalia, Aretha, Janet, Beyoncé etc etc. Lady Gaga is the only one from this decade who actually has talent I wish her all the best

  37. Memo August 25, 2014

    Hun this is my day off, and you are on here MORE than I am. The nerve of you to even use the words “No Life”. You’re the one with no life b****. Hating on Beyonce is a 24/7 thing for you!

  43. Mingxx August 25, 2014

    Thief beyonce cld set her hair on fire and perform and still hasnt sold more than 3.5 million records what an overexposed joke

  44. MariahIsMusic1 August 25, 2014

    You spend 90 percent of your time in this world hating on Beyoncé but you have the audacity to say other people should get lives.. You’ve been using this site for years hating on this woman who has never done anything to you! You’re the one who needs to get a life.

  45. rita ora can win a oscar August 25, 2014

    BEYONCE’S album is the only album, that is still in global charts, that is advertised at full price. Everyone, new and old is at very cheap prices. Rihanan has always sold her album’s at cheap price and discount early. Qaulity over quantity.

  46. True that August 25, 2014

    Y’all spend so much time telling about Rihanna, she is doing her what foes west she is doing have to do with Beyonce. rihanna is the youngest pop star doing the things she is found, she is living her life. She wasn’t even at the vmas can y’all stop obsessing over her. She is young fresh fearless and doing her, bey should try it instead of competing and trying to be better than everyone. Dag, enough!
