Beyonce Re-Release EP Blasts Into iTunes Top 10…Based On Pre-Orders Alone

Published: Thursday 13th Nov 2014 by Sam

Beyonce‘s chart pull continues to prove oh so potent.

The singer is gearing up to re-release her self-titled visual album on November 24th and, as reported, will roll out a standalone digital EP in parallel comprised of the project’s new songs, remixes, and live performances.

Retailing at a modest $8.99, the “add on pack” (aimed at those who already have the original LP) went up for pre-order on iTunes yesterday and has already rocketed into the top ten of the outlet’s US store.

Details below…

As at writing, ‘Beyonce – Platinum Edition (More)’ sits at #6 on store’s main tally:



Beyond being a testament to buzz the ‘Beyonce’ project is still generating a year on, the charting suggests King B could be set to add a healthy # of new sales to the project’s total numbers. Roll on November 24th!

  2. Prismatic November 13, 2014

    • TheElusiveLamb November 13, 2014

      No need to hate on Queen B.

  3. X November 13, 2014

    If beyonce was that of a force, why can’t she just land at no 1. Like Taylor etc

    • How Many Drinks November 13, 2014

      She did tho

      • How Many Drinks November 13, 2014

        How long has 1989 been out for you to come to that conclusion?

    • Prismatic November 13, 2014

      Her sales are front loaded. Taylor is consistent,

      • Unbiased November 13, 2014

        Umm Bey outsold Prism, and made more money than Taylor and Katy combined this year. I’m going to need you to have a seat.

    • You tried November 13, 2014


      U idiots! BEYONCE’s record already debuted no.1 and stayed there for 3weeks! On billboard! This ITUNES U CLOWNS! Lol Pre-Purchased! B**** for her to even get on top TEN the SECOND go around is GOOD NEWS! Some of your FAVS can’t bust open TOP20 on the FIRST try!

      King/Queen Bey got u girls SCARED!!

  4. Bey-Minaj November 13, 2014

    And the lessors will kneel before King Bey, cuz even her rerelease is slaying their lives. All I need now is TPP in my life and I’m good for the year.

  5. Beysus November 13, 2014

    Go Bey!!! #18 in the UK!!!

    • Beysus November 13, 2014

      Damn it’s at #24 now…

  6. Jewel November 13, 2014

    Well well well. It will pretty embarrassing if this re release sells better than some of the struggle under 100k releases that came out this year. But just another testament to Beyonces star power I guess.

  7. I love to get ‘2 On’ November 13, 2014

    Just slay King Bey!!! Them h*** are shaking in their boots. U better snatch those wigs.

  8. Unbiased November 13, 2014

    It would do even better if she would actually go out and promote it! There were so many opportunities missed this era. She should have been performing for the Victoria Secret show, the models requested her. It would have been a perfect way to showcase the album. Sometimes I feel she may need a little manager guidance. I mean even MJ and Madonna were still doing interviews in there 30’s….Bey girl….

    • Jewel November 13, 2014

      That would have contradicted her method of release. As painful as it is for fans, she did that on purpose.

    • metzo November 13, 2014

      “Yonce” would be epic for the fashion show. Bey is playing. Smh

  9. Mark111 November 13, 2014

    Oh look who can’t release outside of the holiday season now, lol.

    • Big boy November 13, 2014

      Your fav better sell over “400,000”, or else you and the rest of your power bottom click, will be dragggged all the way to Love Bird’s Shanty hut.

  10. truthtea November 13, 2014

    Although I don’t like Taylor or Bey I think it’s rather hilarious that 1989 still sold more than Beyonce in the first week yet this site has yet to mention that. Hahahaha

    • loka November 13, 2014

      You’re stupid. Taylor Swift second weeks sales sit at 1.6 M globally and Beyonce’s at 5 million with no promotion. Beyonce is in her 17th year and still selling millions. Taylor hasn’t even reached 8 years. New singers always tend to out sell veterans, especially new singers of Taylor Swift magnitude. Beyonce was netting them same numbers in the beginning of her career as well. And the fact that Beyonce is still pulling in these big numbers, while her peers dwell in oblivion, proves that she is in fact a force to be reckoned with. If you did your proper research, you would know that Taylor hasn’t even sold over 10 millions copies for one of her albums, yet she’s such a big star. Taylor’s known to sell big but her sales then fall London Bridges. When you try to present facts, make sure they’re facts and not lies. Good day!

  11. Tasha November 13, 2014

    I’ve pre ordered my copy! Love me some Bey.

  12. Beystan November 13, 2014

    Slay Yonce, Keep proving them haters Wrong. I remember how every hater was saying “No one gon buy the the album”, but its already top 10 on pre-orders alone. When will your Fave?

  13. metzo November 13, 2014

    I predict it to sell 90k which is still amazing. IASF ‘re release only sold 15k first week. So 90k would be excellent for a ‘re release with no promo.

  14. fatusankoh November 13, 2014

    You go bey I can’t wait to order my copies long live queen bey we your fans love you work hard and it shows thanks Sam for posting

    Taylor tho’…

    • Tyler November 13, 2014

      What about the white country pop artist?

  21. Anne November 13, 2014

    Go Bey! I’ll be buying. I think she has a good shot at going back to the top spot. Maybe she’ll release a single that week.

  22. Tyler November 13, 2014

    Yessss Bitchh! I’ll definitely be purchasing

  23. TRUTH SERUM November 13, 2014

    I see the usually suspects are posted in Beys post. The only one missing is that TPT blond racist. Anyways, people can say what they want about those Hive members but from where I’m standing, they always support their fave.

  24. Really?! November 13, 2014

    OMG, who give a f***?! This chic and her label has got her fans right where they need them. They’re taking everything they can get from them and its not even funny at this point. In all actuality it’s quite sad considering she’s not a true vocalist! Name a ballad or song of hers that will stand the test of time, especially off of her latest release. Even Taylor is selling Millions after one week of release and her album is trash, nothing like her past albums!

    • Tyler November 13, 2014

      Not a true vocalist??? Beyonce has a very wide range, a very resonant voice, pitch/vocal control, and executed rifts and runs beautifully. You must not have any vocal inclination at all if you can’t admit that. Because Beyonce is one of the best vocal technicians in popular music right now.

      • Really?! November 13, 2014

        @TylerPerry, please shut the hell up! If she’s such a true vocalist then why doesn’t she perform like one? Why did her latest album not prove that instead of proving what the world already knew. That she was a ratchet wannabe Tina Turner used as a tool to fool black folks!

      • Tyler November 13, 2014

        What mind set are you in….or are you just playing retarded???
        That has nothing to do with what we were talking about. Like wtf is wrong with you? Do you need a hug????

      • Really?! November 13, 2014

        @TylerPerry, what a lame basic comeback to say the least… Is that all u got? I said what I said, and I will stick to it. If I were a true vocalist and decided to release an album out of nowhere it would definitely show my true talent, not my slutty ways as a married woman with a blue baby. I could care less if I swayed off topic, this is a blog not an essay or final paper (no sources included). You better watch your step!

      • Naomi November 13, 2014

        @Really. Who the f**** are you again and why are you deluded into thinking your opinion is the be all and end all? Just because YOU don’t think shes YOUR definition of a ‘true vocalist’ does not mean shes not. That statement is entirely subjective, and the definition of a VOCALIST currently stands, Beyonce is one, and an extremely gifted one at that. Explain that ‘shes not a trye vocalist’ jagen to all the damn people who have seen her excellent vocal performances, critics who have praised her vocals, and up and coming singers inspired by her singing. And just because YOU don’t think hee music can stand the test if time (the b**** been around for 2 decades and her older music still gets played, so I think thas enough evidence). You sound highly obtuse and biased. Please put your thinking cap on because as @Tyler called you ‘Really stupid’ is how you’re coming across.

      • Tyler November 13, 2014

        SILENCE you snarky pimple faced proactive victim.

    • Slay_Hive November 13, 2014

      This girl always talking about a song that “will stand the test of time” b**** shut up. Like you know what will and won’t be remembered.

      • Really?! November 13, 2014

        Rotfl, @Slay_Hive, its u again? You didn’t get enough from the last run in, lol!

      • Slay_Hive November 13, 2014

        Only in your mind would you think you are getting someone together with your bitter retarded off-subject reads. You are not funny and you try too hard sweety. You have a severe case of Beyoncehasmepressed.

    • Naomi November 13, 2014

      Oh and one last thing, stop acting like you care about what her fans spend their money on. Thats the purpose of being a successful artist, making your fans WANT to continue to INVEST in you? No one is holding a freaking gun to their head forcing them to purchase. If they want even more Beyonce music on their itunes thats their business. If they want to save up to get the best seats at her show, its for their enjoyment. This is not a dictatorship, its the music BUSINESS.

    • Really?! November 13, 2014

      @Naomi, I hope you don’t think I’m about to read that last minute essay u just wrote…@Tyler, please f*** the nearest truck driver because you’re obviously desperate. @ SlayHive, ya ain’t ready that’s why you’re keeping it cool! You already know.

      • Tyler November 13, 2014

        BYE! You have no merit or no deed because you obviously don’t know wtf ur talking about.

        Now, you’ve officially been told to kill yourself. Better think twice before you make another trivial mistake!

      • Naomi November 13, 2014

        Last minute essay? Screaming! Sorry ONE paragraph is such a strenuous read for you. And I know it’s because you know good and damn well you will have nothing else to say. #JobDone

  25. Micks November 13, 2014

    I guess this is her way of making up for her lack of promo. Its pretty disturbing how people can only cling to Taylor Swift (who had to sell out to pop) just to discredit this woman. Taylor, at this point is the only female who sold more than Beyonce… And is targeted at a much easier market yet you think flinging her name in there is some kind if diss towards Beyonce. How many of you went an bought Taylors album? Everyones suddenly has praise for artist because they are selling, despite the fact shes nothing but a Britney 2.0: Selling off the white teenage audience. You honestly make yourselves look pathetic.

    1)NO ONE is forcing any of you to buy shitt
    2)Beyonce is not the first nor last artist to have a re release of her album, but its only an issue when she does it.

  26. SoSerious November 13, 2014

    you go Taylor! can’t wait for the 1989 re-release!

  27. JOHNVIDAL November 13, 2014

    I´m not saying it won´t sell well cause she obviously sold very good a year ago. But The Elusive Chanteuse also entered the itunes top10 based on pre orders alone a couple of weeks before the album release. Why is this so amazing once more (anything is for Sam if it is about Beyonce) but not when it comes to others. Like really, this is not even important seeing how Elusive Chanteuse didn´t sell well but also achieved this feat.
    Btw, how about reporting about some of the amazing vocal moments Mariah has offered in her tour? Like the intro for Emotions in Adelaide? Of course too many good news about Mariah are not allowed here 🙂

    • Naomi November 13, 2014

      He reported on both Mariah and Tony Bennett doing the same so whats the issue?

    • Levi November 16, 2014

      The album wasn’t out a yr ago.

  28. Naomi November 13, 2014

    I don’t think anyones expecting blockbuster sales for an EP re release, only dedictated fans and collectors will be here for this. But either way Im sure it will do better than some of the flops of the past year.

  29. whenindoubtthetruthwillout November 13, 2014

    When one of her albums sells as many copies in its first week as Taylor Swift has done with her last 3 albums then we can call it news!!!

    Until then I think Taylor Swift is the new King/Queen thanks to her sales figures!!!!!

  30. MC! November 13, 2014

    and?? mariahs album did too with just preorders!

  31. Oh Yeah!!! November 14, 2014

    Heyyyyy Beyonce run the world!!!

  32. Levi November 16, 2014

    If she was such the “King” she wouldn’t have to do this, and charge so little for the project…and have to release visuals. What happened to the music speaking for itself. I thought no albums went platinum this year?
