Adele Destined For 2 Million US Sales Debut With ’25’

Published: Friday 30th Oct 2015 by Sam

21.

Of course, that’s the name of Adele‘s blockbuster second album. But it’s also the number of days until the singer unleashes its follow-up ’25.’

Already breaking records left and right, the ‘Hello’ led set is being earmarked for an earth-shattering debut by industry insiders.

The latest on its new forecast after the jump…

Per HDD, ’25’ is being projected to debut with US sales in the ballpark of 2 million.

Previous estimates had the LP predicted to open with 1.5 million copies. However, after the gargantuan success of ‘Hello’ – which has been bulldozing radio, streaming, and digital sales records – the figure has been increased.

If Adele does deliver such numbers, she’d be the first artist to come anywhere near the 2.4 million US opening of NSYNC‘s ‘No Strings Attached’ — which was released 15 years ago.

And given how today’s music climate compares to then (see: sales all but a myth these days), it really puts into context how epic a feat it’d be should she even comes close.

Your thoughts?

    Good for her, but the last time I bought an album off of hype was Julisa Timberthief’s album and that was a huge disappointment.

    So I’ll wait for the hype to die down. Good luck to you though Adele.

      B1tch Spotify is what you need. I will Not have another B-day. I will NOT have another Here I Am. I test these albums out now.

      • LB October 30, 2015

        Yasss My Spotify has saved me from a lot of mistakes.

    • Sweetnothings78 October 30, 2015

        WAStin TimberFAKE.

    • Pat October 30, 2015

      JT’s last album was the s***, don’t know what yall talkin bout!

      • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

        -20.20 was a horrible and Basic follow up to the iconic FS/LS. FS/LS is his only solid body of work. And don’t get me started on that b side of the b side part two album.

      • LB October 30, 2015

        You’re kidding right?

        FS/LS: A+

        50/40 Whatever: D

    • Eldela October 30, 2015

      [email protected] poor attempts to grandstand. 20/20 was the best selling album of that year and outsold all your favs last albums.

    • Bets October 30, 2015

      Adele is such a true artist.

      I pray for Jay Z because Beyonce will take all of her insecurities out on him! This might make Beyonce go over the edge.

  2. Reminiscent October 30, 2015

    Just like ’21’,’25’ is giving me M.J “Thriller” era/Prince “Purple Rain” era/W.H “Bodyguard” era teas!!!

    THE ABSOLUTE FUQING SLAYAGE.

    I don’t think she’ll beat N’Sync’s first week sales but she’ll come damn close.

    Do us Brits. proud Adele… SLAYING THE STATES AND THE WORLD LIKE NOBODY’S BUSINESS!

  3. King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

    *falls to the ground*
    She’s clearly going to beat Britney Spears’ record. But if this woman beats nsync’s (what is it, 2. Something million and even more the 2nd week.) I’ll die. See kids, this was the kind of killing MJ, Janet, Mariah, Britney and others used to do. You clowns wants to call a woman with basic stats a queen, but yet to break anyone records nor set them.

    • Sweetnothings78 October 30, 2015

      It says above luv.

      • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

        Thanks, I honestly didn’t read it. I don’t pay S A M (also known as Silly @ss Mess) any mind.

  4. HailBeysus October 30, 2015

    This is just amazing. She truly deserves all thr success. Can’t believe how much the public has taken to her. Congratulations Adele, keep on slaying girl! Go on and sell another couple trillion albums lol! Ugh already preordered mine. Think almost all my friends did to lol!

  5. Like a prayer October 30, 2015

    The only good thing about all these tired Adele articles is that we don’t have to see tranet bloated face and her 8 stans

  6. Sweetnothings78 October 30, 2015

    And today makes me proud to be British.

  7. Minajesty October 30, 2015

    The shiîtney stans must be somewhere seething since they won’t have this record to hide behind kii

    • Pat October 30, 2015

      Her fans are adults who could care less, grow up kiddo!

  8. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 30, 2015

    Well, what do you know? We predicted it right here and now it’s about to become a reality. Damn, Britney! You held onto that record for life, sis, but now it’s time to let go. Sorry! At least you have two diamond albums, so you’re unbothered.

    • HailBeysus October 30, 2015

      She did! She nearly held that record for almost 2 decade’s. She has no reason to seeth lile some of these people are saying. But Britney only has 1 diamond album. Her second one stalled at 9.2 million.

      • Reminiscent October 30, 2015

        I believe the sales have gone up now and if you go on Billboard.Biz or the RIAA website (you have to be signed up though) it says that “Oops” is Diamond with sales just over 10 Million as of 2009.

        Even Wikipedia says it too, for the sakes of another source!!!

      • HailBeysus October 30, 2015

        Nope Billboard released am article about her sales earlier this year in march and it clearly states Oops sold 9.2 million. I highly doubt she pushed an extra 800k in 7 months considering her last 2 albums have yet to go platinum. But Im still looking for an RIAA certification on that second diamond album.

      • Reminiscent October 30, 2015

        Where’s the billboard article?

        I would post you the Billboard.Biz link where it sgates Oops is Diamond but I dont think it’d allow me if you’re not signed up to the site.

        I could be wrong but I’m sure it’s certified diamond by the RIAA even if sales are just under 10 million!

      • HailBeysus October 30, 2015

        @Reminiscent i guess she have. DIAMOND albums. Congrats to her. Why billboard releasing false numbers tho lol

      • arfa October 30, 2015

        Riaa don’t certify for sales, they certify you on shipments! So brit has 2 diamond albums** 14x platinum and 10x platinum. Beyonce and DC have none

  9. Lambily October 30, 2015

    I hope Hello doesn’t break Mariahs hot 100 record

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

      And whay record is that?

    • OMG Logic!!! October 30, 2015

      I love Adele, but don’t say blasphemous things like that. Mariah and her 16 weeks must never be dethroned.

  10. ricky October 30, 2015

    I hate it when music blogs get facts wrong! 25 will be her third album…her first album was 18 which included the singles “chasing pavements” and “home town”

    • HailBeysus October 30, 2015

      Lol calling out the article for being wrong yet calls her first album 18 lololol it was 19 hun.

    • Lambily October 30, 2015

      Read again

      .

      “21
      Of course, that’s the name of Adele‘s blockbuster Second album”

  11. Lambily October 30, 2015

    She’all probably have her whole album chart within the Top 40 of the Hot100

  12. Reminiscent October 30, 2015

    Britney Spears – Oops I Did It Again: In the U.S, it debuted with 1.3 Million on the opening week becoming the highest first-week sales debut for a female artist ever. Worldwide, it sold 2.4 million copies in first week, 1.2 million in its second week, and 920,000 in its third week, making it one of the fastest selling albums in music history. In late 2000, it sold 16.3 million copies, becoming the best-selling album of 2000.

    YUP. Adele will now take this record over BUT Ms. Spears HELD onto this for 16 years practically so she’s calm and unbothered and sipping tea somewhere, passing down the sales torch!!!

    • Incredible October 30, 2015

      who’s to say adele won’t hold this album for 20 plus years? Her album 21 is on the top albums right now ? Have a seat … Britney who ?

  13. King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

    Poor Beyonce.

    • kiiiii October 30, 2015

      You were doing so well till you mentioned her name

    • Eldela October 30, 2015

      Poor Rihanna.

    • killian November 1, 2015

      Why mention her name???

  14. Pat October 30, 2015

    Why TF do they call Beyonce’ the queen, and no shade at all i’m just curious? This woman is about to do Bey’s self titled surprise visual album’s sales to date in just a few weeks.

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

      I’m still asking that, but the pest brings up her net worth when asked. So we will never know I guess.

    • kiiiii October 30, 2015

      Because she can write her own music, her music SELLS, Those vocals and she is a force to be reckoned with on the stage. Best of both worlds

      • OMG Logic!!! October 30, 2015

        DEATH @ Thighyonce writing her own music.

    • Royalkev October 30, 2015

      – 18 years (music career)
      – 5 #1 albums (8th place, in the history of music)
      – 5 back to back (1 of only 3 people to do so, along Janet and Madonna).
      – 36 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 (3rd place, in the history of the Billboard charts)
      – Artist of the Decade (2000’s)
      – 20 Grammys – 2nd place of all time (women)
      – 16 MTV Awards – 2nd place (women)
      – 5th biggest grossing tour of all time (only following behind (2) by Madonna, Celine Dion, Cher).

      DC
      – 13 weeks (the record for the longest #1 by a band, duo or group).
      – arguably the biggest selling girl group of all time.

      Talent + Stage presence = Beyonce = Queen

      Things not touched on (but could have been): That digital drop, record for having 17 weeks at #1 (in one single year on the Hot 100) and even more DC accomplishments.

      • Royalkev October 30, 2015

        oh, but carry on …

      • Devils advocate October 30, 2015

        You named all those stats and all I saw was 2nd place and 3rd place. Shouldn’t a queen be 1st place in something?

      • Royalkev October 31, 2015

        Interesting how you choose to bypass the fact that Bey’s coming in 2nd and 3rd place in many of these categories only EIGHTEEN years (12 solo) into her career. There’s dozen(s) of legendary women that debuted before Beyonce did; she’d not only have to catch up them, but surpass them in order to own these records. These records that I’ve listed are long-standing, I didn’t bring up any “digital” records that have only been around for 10 years or less (that’s why you see I’m often stating “of all time” and “in the history of” after each accomplishment) . Beyonce having these stats at this point of her career speaks volumes.

  15. Taylor Tori Azalea October 30, 2015

    WOW I’m impresed

    Even tho I thought Taylor was gonna do it first

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

      Nope, too bad.

  16. LB October 30, 2015

    Ya, good question, what is Beyonce queen of exactly.

    Madonna and possibly Taylor outdo her on touring

    Adele outdoes her at selling albums

    Rihanna outdoes her in the digital arena

    What exactly is Beyonce queen of?

    • King Stephy October 30, 2015

      Live Performances.

      • LB October 30, 2015

        Normani from Fifth Harmony can do anything Giselle can do with a side falling yaki wig.

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

      Rihanna out does her in album sales as well. Don’t let the pest fool you with them only bring up U sales. When they do, use this.

        Hahaha, this tea is good

      • Yonce on your mouth October 30, 2015

        She is the Queen of your useless life. She is the one who has almost more weeks at number one than your fav with just 5 songs. She is the one that made r**** change the whole idea of her Rlate Album. She is the one who is older than you fav but can still sell albums and slay on the stage more than your so called young R****. Most importantly she is the Queen your Fav has been trying to be all her live. She is Queen Because she does not need a NO 1 single to dominate the album chat. She is Queen because she does not need to feature Artist or rapper to have 20 Grammys. She is the Queen because she does not need to change her wig or sleep with industry men to get to the Top. She is Queen cus her Team did not need to Lie about her having an AFFAIR with a Married MAN to get media attention. She is Queen cus she did not need Chris brown to beat her ass in order for her to get people attention. Most important she is Queen cus Both you and your Fav remain Bothered about her existence hence the comparisons. You don’t compare Ashanti, Brandy, Britney to Adele because no matter their previous Accomplishment they are presently irrelevant. I hope Beyonce get compared to more artist in the Next 20yrs cus that is a sign that she is very much relevant.

    Fun fact, the last album to go diamond (with SALES of 10 million, not shippments (unlike Mariah Very Thin Voice) was Usher’s confessions. Bye.

    • King Stephy October 30, 2015

      Did you know that’s the only studio album to sell 10,000,000+ copies during the Soundscan era for a black artist. SAD

      • Reminiscent October 30, 2015

        So, don’t you count Mariah Carey as “Black”?

      • LB October 30, 2015

        @Reminiscent

        That’s because Mariah doesn’t actually have an album that has sold 10m+, her Diamond certifications are for shipments.

        ————————
        Oh right … your question. Carey’s day job! Here’s a look at the U.S. album sales, according to SoundScan for Carey, the solo artist with the most Hot 100 No. 1s (18) in the chart’s history:

        Well Mariah consider herself black. Anyway, I have a lot of mixed friends, from half black, Asian, Mexi and so one and two say interracial and all the others pick their “colored” side. No one mixed wants to be White, lol.

      • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

        Those are still great sales by the number or albums/Ep’s and consistency. Very impressed.

    • TRAVON AUSTIN October 30, 2015

      @LB.
      Those sales are store scanned. They do not account for the sales of BMG music clubs. BMG music clubs never were counted when adding Mariah Carey sales by Neilson Soundscan. BMG music clubs accounted for 35% of record sales. The numbers you gave are store scans. Shipments Sale certifications stopped after the Soundscan began in 1991. The RIAA began using soundscan and BMG music clubs to certify. BMG music clubs accounted for so much of the music industry that the RIAA certified albums and songs off of very low estimates. Mariah Careys certified albums sales after 1991 were not shipments at all. Music Box(1993) and Daydream(1995) both went diamond. The difference is BMG music clubs.

  20. Yonce on your mouth October 30, 2015

    LB and Mark are all stanning for Adele now so they can shade beyonce, how pathetic. Get mad if you like but Beyonce remains Queen. The Britney you all are talking about can’t even sell What Beyonce sold in one week in a year in 2015. Forget 2000 and come to 2015 where everyone is. 2015 where Beyonce who has been in the Game for almost 20yrs is still selling and making pathetic people like you mad. Holla at me when Adele is 20yrs into her career and still sells her album like she is now or when Rihanna who is just 10yrs into her career can sell 1million without Samsung. Foh jealous asshole. You mention Beyonce’s name all over a post that is not about hor, yet you wonder why people call her the Queen? Oh Education is indeed a necessity.

    • HailBeysus October 30, 2015

      YAAAASSSSS PUT THEM PATHETIC PEASENTS IN THEIR PLACE!!!!!

    • kiiiii October 30, 2015

      • Yonce on your mouth October 30, 2015

        She has not but if David previous post is anything to go by, then she will.

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

      How am I stanning when I don’t own a single Adele song. Stay mad. And poor Beyonce because the SAEM label that is backing and pushing Adele is the SAME label that Beyonce is on. Save your excuses, because JIVE was pushing Britney, Nync, Backstreet Boys and later in the 2000’s was pushing Usher, Britney, JT, CB and Ciara (on that one album) all the same. One can ask the fan base that call their fave Queen/King, yet so many artist outdone her and is out doing her. Go ahead, chop, crop, cut, slice and dice it all ya want, but at the end, Beyonce will be looked at as a basic b*** shaker.

      • Yonce on your mouth October 30, 2015

        Lol How stupid are you really? If Beyonce is basic then what is rihanna? Beyonce is not the one pushing her album because she is afraid she will flop. Beyonce is not the one who released a single over a year without any album release date. Beyonce is not the one who does not have direction just because she has more control. If anyone is having label/management issue then it’s R****. Ok…. I get you now. you think Beyoncé should not be called Queen right? Then Rihanna should be called Queen I guess right? So tell me dumb head what has rihanna accomplished in order to get the title? If you can tell me I will committed treason and call Rihanna Queen.. just tell me. Am waiting….

  21. Dev October 30, 2015

  22. King Stephy October 30, 2015

    Beyonce is the Queen Of Live Performances, period. Ain’t no other artist int he game RIGHT NOW, with her stage dominance, period. And, don’t all artist do the dame s***? MJ? Tina? ALLLL did the same stuff their ENTIRE careers. Shut the f*** up!

    LMFAO. We don’t need to call you when BeYAWNce is 20 years into her career like Adele as the fact is… SLAYDELE, right now, is BREAKING RECORDS that your thieving fave could only dream of. That is SLAYDELE’s legacy right now and it’ll be YEARS before anybody touches that too. CALL ME when BeYAWNce has an album that sells 30 million copies WW, CALL ME when BeYAWNce has a Diamond Album, CALL ME when BeYAWNce has a debut sales week of more than 2 Million… Bītch, CALL ME when BeYAWNce has another #1 single. LMAOOOOO. KI.

    • Yonce on your mouth October 30, 2015

      Adele has Talent I won’t deny that… I am presently enjoying Hello. Fact is Adele is slaying Every Artist right now including Taylor. But don’t try to Bring down my Fav accomplishment just because of Adele. You can praise one person without bring down some else. The same Adele you are trying to put against Beyonce has been my Fav biggest stan since she came out. Don’t get mad she wants to work With Queen Bey and R**** or any other basic out there. Talents identifys with talent. Adele know Queen Bey’s worth and you should too.

      • Joeny91 October 30, 2015

        Nicely put. I really think these fans wars need to just stop cause they are ridiculous. Me personally I am not Beyonce fan I am an Adele but I will not trash talk one artist to make my fav look better because its a little ratchet. I also personally believe that an Adele/Beyoncé Duet would be amazing. It would be this generations Whitney/Mariah Duet.
        🙂 🙂 🙂

    • killian November 1, 2015

      BTW no matter how hard we ignore the fact err Adele is WHITE although she is probably the best at what she does (belting ballads) she is a wonderful singer but shes not a performer. Beyonce is both..and black.

    Incredible numbers by the Songbird Supreme! And, this is just America! And, her debut album sold more than that. But, soundscan didn’t start calculating it until May of 1991. When the actual album was released in June Of 1990.
    Also, her certifications are HER sales, period. Just like with any other artist BEFORE soundscan. She has 2 DIAMOND LP’s, period.

    • LB October 30, 2015

      Emancipation of Mimi should have flopped, it was horrible. What shady deal did LA Reid concoct to get that to sell? Oh wait, WBT saved that entire era.

      Butterfly should be way higher, that and Rainbow, and Me.I am Mariah

      • King Stephy October 30, 2015

        Honey, why are you stating this like it’s a fact? The Emancipation is a classic, period (imo). That album sold extremely well in the urban scene during 2005. We Belong Together was the biggest hit from that album, it was a hit on URBAN radio first. The lead single “It Like That” helped push the album to sell 400K during the first week. Shake It Off was a big hit too. The song was suppose to be a #1 hit, but WBT stopped it. The re-release produced another hit which was her 17th #1. And, helped the album become the biggest selling LP by an R&B/Urban act of 2005. If it wasn’t for the other singles (including WBT), 50 Cent would’ve outsold her, with The Massacre.
        .
        .
        Me I Am Mariah is mediocre, at best. I didn’t like that LP at all. Butterfly LYRICALLY is her masterpiece. The album didn’t sell that well cause people were mad Mariah’s vocal state had drastically changed. And, her sound went from R&B/Pop too FULL R&B. Which made her lose alot of her WHITE audience. The album sold very well, for an R&B release. Kinda like with Mary J R&B LP’s.

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

      Where are your citations? Where did you get these numbers? Because LB clearly got his from soundscan. Nice try, again, pulling numbers out your rear end.

      • King Stephy October 30, 2015

        Honey, I copy/pasted what LB posted. And, he got his from BILLBOARD. Soundscan doesn’t have an official website with #1s.

  25. LB October 30, 2015

    “The Britney you all are talking about can’t even sell What Beyonce sold in one week in a year in 2015. Forget 2000 and come to 2015 where everyone is. 2015 where Beyonce who has been in the Game for almost 20yrs is still selling and making pathetic people like you mad


    Hmmmm so Yonce has been in the game for over 20 years, had a leg up from Kelly and Michelle, has released 3513516831351 flop singles and still cannot outsell Britney in her short reign from 2000 to 2008 or whatever?

    Well, does she need another 20 years to catch up to what Britney did in 10?

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

      Again with the cropping and cutting. But I thought Beyonce is “20 years in the game”. So count DC sales in there, they do when they try to come for Aaliyah. They won’t because even with DC, Beyonce is still basic up to Britney and others. See how they are? They don’t fool me.

      • LB October 30, 2015

        hahahaha clocked. Now today is Beyonce of live performances, what happened to Beyonce is an album seller.

        Reminds of someone who said their fav is an album seller who is a queen of a certain record label 🙂

      • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

        DIES! Caught Mr. Rosie comment. That reminds me of the “most successful artist in the Uk behind Adele.”

      • Yonce on your mouth October 30, 2015

        Beyonce is an album seller like it or not. She has 5 number one album and all her album has sold over 2millon. If that is not an album seller then I don’t know what is. She also has a diamond single. Stay mad

    • Yonce on your mouth October 30, 2015

      No she does not need another 20years to catch up with Britney. She is keeping you mad as usual. With her Diamond album can she sell 100thousand in 2015? The fact you jobless fools are still worried about her means she is still Queen.

    • Yonce on your mouth October 30, 2015

      She is Queen like it or not. She is best performer since MJ. Does people you mentioned have all testified to her Greatness. It’s not her fault that you have been blind since 2007. She is so Good that people keep setting the Bar high for all her performances. What do you want her to perform? What does move do you want from her that she has not given? Do you want her to fly or jump into the sky? You tell me now? What move do you want from her? First you said since 2012 now it’s since 2007. You are just a confused hater.

    • Sweaterz October 31, 2015

      LOL, try release one single now Beyonce. I doubt you can sell.
      Even her new single with Naughty Boy flopped hard worldwide. 🙂

  26. kiiiii October 30, 2015

    Every post has to turn into a Bey Vs Rih Stan war yawn.It’s annoying that we can’t appreciate the only two biggest BLACK pop stars in the world and in pop culture who are slaying things in their own department without having to pit them against each other

  27. kiiiii October 30, 2015

    No wonder why we got basics like Taylor Swift slaying we can’t appreciate black female singers we always have to pit them against each other and keep stanbases divided

  28. Like a prayer October 30, 2015

    Beyonce is the suppose queen but her stats are very underwhelming compared to legends. Her highest selling album in the US is at 5x. She’s more of a touring act now.

  29. Like a prayer October 30, 2015

    And Brittney has 2 CONSECUTIVE diamond albums. She may flop now but don’t discredit her impact and legacy

    • Eldela October 30, 2015

      Many big acts have 2 diamond albums. Britney ain’t special. It’s how well you sales adjust and maintain AFTER you peak that is the true mark of your fame, success and legacy. Britney has done very poorly in that regard. Britney is just a fad that kept coming back, even after people stopped caring.

  30. Ari October 30, 2015

    F*** this overhyped humpback whale. I don’t stan for sales and don’t care about her double chin

  31. King Stephy October 30, 2015

    Beyoncé doesn’t need massive album or single sales. Her star power is just as big (and sometimes even bigger) than most that have outsold her. Her tours are extremely successful & her net worth is massive. Many legends like Patti, Barbra, Diana, Donna Summers etc… didn’t need DIAMOND LP’s or huge sales to still be great & legendary.

    • Like a prayer October 30, 2015

      But Forbes just estimated that her networth was 250 million. So much for ” billion dollars on a elevator”

      • King Stephy October 30, 2015

        They also said Madonna’s net worth is 500 million… so much for her being a 800$ millionaire, let alone a billionaire like ha F**** claims she is…

      • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

        DIES. Forbes, that same source that the pest been using for years. Now it’s not reliable because it doesn’t help their case. Hahahahaha

        SCREAMS!!!

  32. Dev October 30, 2015

    LMFAO…

    Not this NEGROID comparing BeYAWNce to Barbra, Donna and Patti – ULTIMATE LEGENDS who have been in the industry for over 55 years, helped shape contemporary music as we know it and whose majority of sales arep from a time when music was still on stereo format and selling in cassette tapes and vinyl discs – though?

    I can’t.

  33. King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

    Queen of LIVE performances? How? Because she SOMETIMES sings LIVE and shake her @ss and whip her hair at the same time? These LAMES and pest are acting like Beyonce does Janet and Ciara, or even Tinashae level of choreography and singing LIVE. NOT the case because whenever she does Get Me Bodied, she lips each and every time. Don’t think I don’t notice her dodging her high notes/ falsettos like she’s in a game of dodgeball.

  34. Thando October 30, 2015

    True talent getting just rewards. Very rare, refreshing and beautiful.

    I was so tired of s** selling music, Adele is music selling music.

    Remember the 90s fever with just vocal artists? Celine’s Falling into you, Mariah Carey and MusicBox, Toni Braxton’s the Heat.

    Amazing.

  35. Yonce on your mouth October 30, 2015

    I have been visiting this site everyday for more than 4years but I barely comment because I don’t really see the use. But some of you here are just plain annoying. Jeez

  36. kiiiii October 30, 2015

    Yeah but who(TODAY) else can slay the stage, with dancing and still keeping them vocals on point? Maybe Ciara

    • Pat October 30, 2015

      She lips though, pay attention!

  37. King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

    She shows are and NEVER on the level of Janet. Yes JJ lips, but look at the WORK she put in her dancing. Singing (with an echo machine in the back) while shaking your @ss doesn’t trumps over a Janet, a early Britney or even a Rihanna. Rihanna can move a crowd at the same level with her just being HER. Maybe, MAYBE you FEEL that Beyonce is the best because she’s YOUR fave and that’s ok and subjective. But when it comes to numbers, records, sales, impact, influence and creativity, Beyonce is behind almost each and every artist I named. And that’s why she will never be a legend, nor an icon because what did she bring new to the table? Nothing. Bye.

    • coolness October 30, 2015

      You’re not serious. Beyonce is a vocalist FIRST. That was how she was introduced to us with Destiny’s Child and later grew into a fully rounded performer when she went solo. Bey doesn’t put in work? Take a look at the kind of singing she does in her shows – of course she’d need help on some songs – which is more than I can say for Janet (whom I LOVE) and Britney because they pretty much lip almost their entire show. Just because Bey is not giving you Rhythm Nation choreography doesn’t mean she’s a lazy performer or can’t dance. She simply doesn’t have the muscle memory to perform such choreography and that’s fine. And once again, you have the AUDACITY to bring up Rihanna as a comparison to Beyonce as a performer when she has yet to master ONE ASPECT of it – be it impressive singing or intricate choreography. Rihanna ‘just being her’, AKA lazy vocals, stiff dance moves, lacklustre stage presence and letting the audience sing majority of the song is NOT TALENT.

  38. Dev October 30, 2015

    BeYAWNce isn’t the QUEEN of anything.

    The bītch has been DRAAAAAAAGING out the same old, tedious and uncreative, live performances since 2007.

    Her stats. are incredibly basic – she can’t even beat Alicia Keys’ or Mary J Blidge’s U.S sales, both of whom are more talented than her pretentious ass, but yet… “she’s a queen”.

    I can’t with these mosquitos!!!

  39. King Stephy October 30, 2015

    That’s the thing: Janet, Britney etc… Are ONLY dancers, that’s it. Beyoncé is the full package. She serves VOCALS, DANCING, GLAMOUR & STAGE PRESENCE. BYE

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

      No, Janet is a artist that writes and have full control of her art and a great performer. Janet influence a whole damn generation. Janet, the only Jackson to have a full legendary career outside of MJ. Janet the woman that had now icons open for her (Usher, Nsync) and work for her (Paul, J.Ho). Janet made career, Beyonce only stepped on others to get where she is. She also takes from others to get where she’s at. So how is she a queen?

      • King Stephy October 30, 2015

        Baby, why are you like this? There is nothing new under the sun, Mark. Even The King Of Pop wasn’t 100% original with everything he did. You gotta see that Beyonce is an Icon & soon to be legend. She’s amazing! Vocalist, Dancer, Co-Writer, Co-Producer, Business woman etc… Yes, she has stolen & been shady. But, who hasn’t?!?! This is the music Business not a fair competition game. Mariah, MJ, Elvis, John Lennon etc.. all have stolen & or have been accused of taking ideas that aren’t theirs. Bey is one of the biggest entertainers alive, she’s talented. She deserves her praise & respect, period.

      • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

        No, no no no no. It’s ok to be influanced. It’s even ok to pay homage to the greats. But when I can do a simple search and post over 10 videos of side by side and it’s a straight up copy and paste, then NO, that’s not going to slide.
        .
        Let me give you an example, Aaliyah was influenced by Janet. But NEVER did she straight up jacked any of JJ’s work. Same with Mariah. MC as an aritst took from no one, yes she reminded us of Minnie Riperton, BUT never jacked her style. Same with Usher, but Cb jacks.
        .
        Back to Beyonce, almost every style, video, performance is taken, a direct copy from another artist. That’s not being inspired, that’s stealing.

  40. Lover of music October 30, 2015

    Lol How stupid are you really? If Beyonce is basic then what is rihanna? Beyonce is not the one pushing her album because she is afraid she will flop. Beyonce is not the one who released a single over a year without any album release date.
    .
    .
    .
    Umm didn’t Beyonce “push back” her last album a whole damn year? Didn’t Beyonce release 3 “buzzed singles” months before, even one stayed on the album. Rihanna is not finished with the album. But clearly Beyonce was done with her last album for a WHILE, enought to film 16 videos for them. SO that album BEEN done before it was release at the END of 2013, two weeks after Rihvember. “Don’t think that I forgot.”

  45. King Stephy October 30, 2015

    Mark, you contradict yourself so much on this site. Smh
    .
    1.) Don’t you ALWAYS bash Chris Brown for not singing live & just being a “dancer”. But, then praise Miss Jackson (whom I love) & Britney for doing the EXACT same thing?? I don’t get that at all.
    .
    2.) Also, you bash Beyoncé for not being on the same level with her peers with massive album/single sales. But, then turn around & praise Miss Jackson like she isn’t the less most successful mega-diva of her peers. And, Beyoncé has out-success-ed her peers at certain things. Rihanna & Katy has NOT sold more albums than Bey, nor have they out-grossed Bey in touring receipts.
    .

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

      I’ll answer in order. Bout to grill you with facts.
      .
      1) I said time and time again, CB is nothing more than a male Britney. When I say that, his (remaining) fans come here with “He’s the next MJ, he can sing. YET there’s not ONE, a single video outside the age of 16 (the man is 26 now) he had a great or even an ok or average vocal performance. You seen him with Rita THOT, he acting like he’s doing the most, yet nothing but sturggle came out. The same at the BET awards with Try Songs and August September October. The rest are lipped and he’s the king of studio magic, cause you will NEVER get it LIVE.
      .
      Janet was one of the 5 that saved the music bizz in the 80’s, the others being MJ, Prince , Whitney and Madonna. So that’s her being among her peers. (0’s she (or MC, one or the other) had the record for the first album to open over 300K (Janet, MC and Selena at the time). She had the biggest WW tours and #1’s. MC killed the game, BUT MC was new to the game. Madonna was flopping in comparison. Whit was killing it with the BG soundtrack (and other soundtrack of her films). Janet was the only pop star of her peers to have a song nom for an Oscar (that she wrote and for a film that she starred in) and performed and sung LIVE. All For You was the 2nd biggest opening of that year and I want to say at that time in music, only behind Brit. While MC was flopping and selling her Blister single for 58 cents, MIND you, both were on the same label. Her fall came in 2003, after what? 20 years, 15 years after Control. While her peers, Granny was flopping and washed after 10, Moo Moo went crazy with just 10, MJ was done, Prince was done and fighting with WB and Whitney was OVER around the same time as Moos. Point? Each of her peers and the gen after fell off around or before the 10 year mark, Janet at 15 and it wasn’t even her fault. BUT, she’s back now, doing more than her “peers” today.

  46. Thando October 30, 2015

    Adele is pure songwriting and vocal talent getting just rewards. It’s refreshing, it’s beautiful.
    Reminds one of the 90s with the fever caused by Celine’s “Falling Into you”, Mariah’s “MusicBox”, and Toni’s “Secrets”.

    Oh and to be sure, Beyonce is an excellent singer, performer and best live performer alive. She doesn’t however write her own music, doesn’t play and depends very much on her sexual consumability (which is NOT a bad/immoral/wrong).

    One thing that makes Beyonce fans rather defensive is their fear to confront the reality that Beyonce doesn’t have a “classic” album or her magnum opus. Sure she had memorable albums or “eras” as you call them on this blog, but they are nowhere near what “Miseducation” by Lauryn, “Daydream” by Mariah, Adele’s “21”, “Secrets” by Toni Braxton, “Up!” by Shania Twain, “Jagged Little Pill” by Alanis Morissette, “Falling into you” by Celine Dion, “Come away with me” by Norah Jones, or “Ray Of Light” by Madonna.

    This isn’t to discredit Beyonce it’s just pointing our a reality that she hasn’t produced an album that we associate with so much more than just the artist’s “star power”. An album that just gripped a great artistic consciousness of people who love music. She doesn’t have that and that is OK! She’s not alone but it doesn’t mean she isn’t the best female solo entertainer alive.

Each of her peers and the gen after fell off around or before the 10 year mark, Janet at 15 and it wasn’t even her fault. BUT, she’s back now, doing more than her “peers” today.”

    COMPLETE & UTTER B*******! Where in the hell do you make this s*** up from? Oh god, where do the hell I start???

    1.) Janet was not even in the top 5 artist of the 1980s idiot. Prince, MJ, Madonna, U2, Whitney, Barbra Streisand all sold more than her in the time frame. How exactly did she “help save” anything with 2 freaking albums, that weren’t even that massive OUTSIDE the US-A??? MJ, Madonna & U2 etc… ALL had 20,000,000+ selling albums by 1990. She was NOT in the top 5 nothing during the 1980s.

    2.) She didn’t have thee biggest world tours! MJ & Madonna world tours left her in the dust baby doll.

    3.) MADONNA was STILL bigger than Janet GLOBALLY in the 1990s. THe Immaculate Collection outsold ALL her albums, The Blonde Ambition & Girlie Show’s OUT-GROSSED ALL her world tours. Erotica flopped not because she was “washed” but due to it’s sexually explicit nature. And, Bedtime Stores was a decent seller. She scored a 10 million selling compilation in 1995 & a 10 million selling soundtrack with EVITA (which earned her a GOLDEN GLOBE). Ray Of Light outsold ALL Janet’s efforts GLOBALLY. Madonna was actually still more successful than JJ. So, that “washed” s*** is a complete & utter Lie.

    4.) Yes, Mariah started flopping in 2001. AFTER a string of hit ALBUMSssssss back too back too back too back PLATINUM selling success. Her consistency level was WAY above Janet’s. She finally had her big flop (like every other artist) with her 11th album release. That’s f****** amazing! Mariah bounced back with a PLATINUM selling GREATEST HITS in 2001 & a PLATINUM selling (wtih a very successful world tour) during the Charm-bracelet era. But, then come back with a MASSIVE MULTI-PLATINUM (with the biggest non-holiday hit of her career) album in 2005. 15 YEARS, after her debut. Which in that 15 year time frame the woman WORKED herself almost to DEATH!


    MADONNA is the MOST successful female artist in HISTORY! She slyaed the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s with ALBUM, SINGLE & TOURING receipts. And, currently STILL outselling ALL her peers 30+ years into ha career with Rebel Heart & ANOTHER groundbreaking successful WORLD TOUR. You’re extremely retarded for even trying it with the QUEEN OF POP

    • What now October 30, 2015

  56. shakira stan October 30, 2015

  57. King Stephy October 30, 2015

    “No, because Janet, Brit, Ciara and others fans don’t call them great singers. We call them amazing dancers / performers. You’re still trying, yet I still stand.”
    ————-
    Baby, when in the hell do the general public even remotely calls Christopher an amazing singer? See, you’re showing favoritism towards your favs. And, hating on Chris cause you dislike him. Honey, ain’t nobody going to see Chrissy for some got damn vocals. Come on now!

    • King Stephy October 30, 2015

      And, before you come in here screaming about “I SAID FANS”… I know that! You just using that as an excuse to bash Chris. You just don’t like his ass, cause he beat the shitt outta Rih. His fans doesn’t see him for vocals. They go to see him dance & watch that ZICK swing back n forth. And, thats the true tea. BYE

  58. MsYonce October 30, 2015

    Mark and LB is obsessed with Beyonceee. Adele is demolishing Rihanna y’all just trying to use Beyonce to distract from that.

    • RihYonce October 30, 2015

      Exactly like….

    • Adele Stan October 30, 2015

      Basically. Rihanna is a flop who gets slayed by all the girls: Gaga, Taylor, Beyoncé, Katy, Miley, Adele, and Justin Bieber.

      • RihYonce October 30, 2015

        Lmao dead at JB

      • HailBeysus October 30, 2015

        BITXH!!!! NOT JUSTIN BIEBER HAHAHAHAHA MAKING ME SPIT MY DRINK EVERYWHERE AND SHIIIT HAHAHAHA POOR RIHANNA

  59. MsYonce October 30, 2015

    If this Rihanna’s Samsung deal is anything like Jayz she will be dragged for filthhh. Before 21 were calling Rihanna the new Queen and s*** after loud sales now y’all backtracking lmao

  60. RihYonce October 30, 2015

    Lmao at y’all expecting Beyoncé to do these kind of numbers when she does mostly urban music , Beyoncé is doing great to be a mostly urban pop artist Britney/Adele made music that is appealing for everybody Beyoncé doesn’t so stop comparing her to these girls when they don’t even make the same type of music, and she’s BLACK no other black female is selling the way she is either, she’s a queen because of all of her accomplishments, changing the game , still selling records with mostly urban music, she’s does way more than just shake her ass on stage , when she sings live she blows all your favs away , so predictable clinging to Adele smh a bunch of Dck riders , good night , I know you’ll be back when B6 drops & she will sell again with her urban mostly urban influenced album

  61. RihYonce October 30, 2015

    If your fav isn’t Taylor , Adele or Beyoncé you shouldn’t be talking about sales this decade lol at bringing up what Britney did ages ago

  62. King Stephy October 30, 2015

    THA FUQ? Did this n**** just post a vocal video & ay read the comments? I can EASILY do that for Rihanna & Ciara. Mark, you’re deluded hun. No one, looks at Chris Brown as some vocalist. Like I said, he’s in the same boat as the GOAT whisperer, BrittleKnees & Ciara. Janet’s a legend so I wont disrespect her saying she’s the same as him. But, no one goes to Brown for vocals. You just don’t like him, period. BYE

    • coolness October 30, 2015

      Ugh, I’ve read your back and forth with him and his delusion is THICK. Your comments are on point. Yes, I too have criticised Chris for his seemingly dwindling live vocal ability because I saw a lot of potential in him with his first two albums. I hoped he’d become someone akin to Usher – a male artist whose primary form of entertainment was dance but also worked hard on his voice to gain credibility as a vocalist (even though he still remains rather underrated in that area). The honest truth is, people don’t go to Janet, Usher, Britney, Chris and even Beyonce concerts (to a lesser extent because she’s such a virtuosic singer) for vocals. They go for the spectacle of it all – the dancing, the lights, the pyro, the choreography and the s*xiness of it all (think Janet circa 1993 – 2001, Beyonce’s drop dead gorgeousness and seeing Usher’s bare torso in the flesh is quite the experience, lol). At the end of it all, what gives Bey the upper hand compared to her peers, predecessors and potential entrants into the game who either have/had more powerful voices or dance/danced better is that she took the best of both worlds and combined them to become the most fully-rounded performer of her generation.

      • HailBeysus October 30, 2015

        YAAASSSSS!!!! Thank you for that! They say she is unoriginal yet we never had ana artist quite like Beyonce. She has taken the best of both world’s and combined them. I have been saying that for year’s yet the haters will not comprehend it and continue their hate. I also could careless on the Beyonce can’t dance like Janet or Britney. Bey has made it clear from the start that she will not compromise dance for vocals!!! Again thank you for that awesome paragraph!

  63. coolness October 30, 2015

    I am SCREAMING! This bish is about to body the entire industry! It’s gonna be quite interesting for me keeping track of Adele’s slayage this time around because I didn’t pay that much attention to her during the 21 era (I found her quite boring tbh). If she does indeed snatch Britney’s record for first-week sales, I don’t the latter will be pressed about it at all. For one, she’s a certified Pop icon and HELD that record for almost 16 years. She’s good. I cannot with the blatant use of Adele to discredit Beyonce by Rih fans though. Bey has released her album, garnered acclaim sold well and is on to the next. When’s Rihanna gonna drop Anti?

  64. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! October 30, 2015

    Well done Taylor swift, for spending a whole year inside the top 10 of the albums in the states!
    Only the 5th person to do it!!!

  65. Antifakeass October 30, 2015

    Don’t act Rihanna is not good at something …
    -Rihanna’s records sales :175.3 million (certified) . 191 million (claimed ) | usa: 134.05 million
    -Beyonce’s records sales : 67.6 million (cerified).75 million (claimed ) | usa: 47.150 million

    Records = album sales + singles sales !

    Hahaha

    • HailBeysus October 30, 2015

    • BEY>RIH October 30, 2015

      Wikipedia reciepts??????????I can go on that site right now and say Ciara is the biggest female artist of all time! Mediatraffic reciepts claim that Beyoncé has sold 151 million records as a solo artist. Also her sales are very uncertified. Her sales were at 75 million in 2009 and 118 million in 2013.

      • BEY>RIH October 30, 2015

        IASF sold 7.9mil albums and 35 mil singles WW. That’s a total of 42 million records from one era alone. Your telling me she only sold 33 million total records with her 4 other eras??

      • King Mark111 /.\ October 30, 2015

        You’ll have to have a cited source stating that and it is checked every so often.

  66. October 30, 2015

    Thats huge congratz to her.

  67. No favs, just here for the music October 30, 2015

    2 million????? Omg that would be awesome!!

    I think it’s obvious she will surpass Britney’s record but sadly I don’t think she will beat NSYNC. Not like that matters because DAMN! Adele is accomplishing things that happened over a decade ago! Before downloading and people actually HAD to PURCHASE music lol.

    First week sales aren’t always the most important though. It’s the LONGEVITY of an album. ’21’ had that. I hope ’25’ will do the same.

  68. CherylSoldierr October 30, 2015

    I’m SCREAMING at how pressed mark is. Literally can’t keep beys p*ssy off his lips. Sis you really need to worry about that anti release date. Bey had a great era, rihs had 3 flop singles that have been overshadowed by Ariana, Demi and Selena kiiiii. MESS

  69. CherylSoldierr October 30, 2015

    Also crying at the dumbassss logic that you have to be the best in a certain category to be considered a great. Most people who are greats/champions excel all around, so death at that argument against bey. Being incredible in one area and sh!tty in another makes you one dimensional markeisha

  70. Theman October 30, 2015

    AHMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  71. Tina Lord Roberts October 30, 2015

    You know Beyonce is queen by the lengths people go to to try and discredit her. People wouldn’t randomly try and pit/compare the success of every other female against Ciara or Meghan Trainor. You only do that to people who at the top in some desperate attempt to bring them down. She lives in her haters feeble minds. The breathe her. Admit it, LB and Mark, you’ve often dremt about her, haven’t you? Bey owns part of your psyche. She (and her fans) just makes you so AAAAAAANNNNNGGGGRRRRRYYYYY, doesn’t she? She just won’t go away, will she?! Laughing. The number of stress headaches you’ve had over her must be unreal! Heh.

    • Alex October 31, 2015

      @Tina Lord Roberts EXACTLY!!!! They will deal and know that QUEEN BEY is sitting pretty on the thrown!

      • whenindoubtthetruthwillout October 31, 2015

        Learn to spell dumbass!!!!!!

        Thrown=past tense of the verb to throw.

        Throne=the seat of a king or queen.

        No wonder Beyonce has so many stans-they’re all as stupid as [email protected]!!!!!!!!!!
