Welcome to another edition of ‘The Stream Scene‘, the ‘That Grape Juice’ original feature shining a light on digital feats made by Pop & R&B’s biggest movers and shakers!
Launched in response to the inclusion of streaming points in many a chart across the globe, each edition will see us breakdown the facts and figures behind by each member of ‘The Scene’s release!
So, which four acts made it into ‘The Click Clique’ this time?
Find out below!
Kicking this week’s digital party off is R&B royal Beyonce, whose steamy visual for her single ‘Partition’ bumps and grinds to VEVO streams of 65,114,144!
Meanwhile, as Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Pills n Potions‘ edges closer to US sales of 500,000 units, her ‘Flawless’ collaboration with Mrs.Carter surpasses the 40 million mark less than a week after its release.
Reaching the milestone with help from user uploaded HQ versions of the number, the cut’s continued success comes without an iTunes release, while its original version can be found on the singer’s self-titled studio LP, released in the December of 2013.
Elsewhere, ‘She’ chanteuse Keyshia Cole sees the single pick up 438,245 views since its video release on August 1st, doing so as 2007’s ‘Heaven Sent’ burns bright on VEVO with 28,415,594 streams. Impressive to say the very least, ‘Heaven’s success came two years after the release of the singer’s debut album ‘The Way it Is’, whose sales now sit well over the 1.6 million sold.
Joining ‘The Scene‘ for the very first time this week is Lyrica Anderson, the 90s R&B beauty behind the new single ‘Feenin’, now available to spin above.
Though yet to score the notoriety currently enjoyed by genre sisters Jhene Aiko, a rising and loyal fan base have pushed ‘Feenin‘s views to 69,246 in a week alone, less than 20,000 views from outperforming its older ‘Unf*** You’, which now resides at the 81,000 mark.
Last, but certainly not least is Hip Hop icon Lil Kim!
Though slammed for supposed obsession with rival Nicki Minaj, her decision to take new aim at the rapper after the release of her new single ‘Anaconda’ seems to be paying off the star, with her latest diss track ‘Identity Theft’ nabbing 52,079 views on ‘RapNHipHopTV2‘ alone!
Indeed, while riding high on Minaj‘s digital wave is unlikely to secure the star backing from any major recording labels, striking while her iron is at its hottest has done wonders for the performer’s digital stock in the last week, seeing her score commendable streaming numbers on each and everyone of her Nicki-related numbers.
