Beyonce‘s ‘Dangerously in Love‘ has reached an impressive milestone!

Details below…

Array



Billboard reports:

The effort, released in 2003, sold just over 2,000 copies in the week ending Dec. 24, bringing its cumulative total across the 5 million mark. It remains Beyoncé’s best-selling solo effort.

In addition, Beyonce has visited the top of the Billboard 200 and sold millions as part of Destiny’s Child. The group notched two No. 1s with Survivor and the greatest hits collection #1s. Destiny’s Child has four million-selling albums (including their biggest: The Writing’s On the Wall, with 6.4 million), while their total album sales stand at 17.5 million.

 

Excellent news.

It’s hard to believe now but there was once a time when the future of Beyonce‘s career stood an uncertain ground following the backlash she received for the part she was unfairly accused of playing in Destiny’s Child‘s lineup changes.

Add to that the pressure of competing with the likes of Britney Spears, Ashanti, Jennifer Lopez and Christina Aguilera the odds seemed to be stacked against the star.

Fortunately, the 22-year-old’s bold and romantic exploration of Hip-Hop, Jazz, R&B, Pop and Soul on ‘Dangerously’ showcased the talent and musicality that saw her outperform each and every one of her competitors and raise the standard for what it meant to be a Pop musician at the time…and inspire her then-boyfriend Jay-Z to attempt to replicate her success with two artists who go by the names of Teairra Mari and Rihanna a year later.

Let’s hope its impact inspires the next generation of artists to deliver material that does for them what the LP did for the ‘Love’ purveyor.

        The hive are so insecure.

      • Just Five Million??? December 31, 2015

        The BeyHIVe are so pissed that they are just making up stats to defend the Queen of Insecurities.

      • rosy December 31, 2015

        And Adele sold 6million In six weeks this tired song took how many years? Dumb reporting on irrelevant Beyonce at this point

    • Fancy BISH December 31, 2015

      This isn’t directed at you Taylor swifts number 1 fan!!! :)…this is food for thought…many music LEGENDS didn’t sell huge amounts of albums everytime…they just sold consistently over a LONG period of time and a FULL career…everyone from Elvis to Barbra Streisand…also, LEGEND Tina Turner had her biggest selling album, Private Dancer, at 45 years old….LEGEND Barbra Streisand had her biggest selling album in her late 30’s with the 1980 album Guilty…LEGEND Bruce Springsteen’s biggest album, Slay In The U.S.A., was released when he was 35 years old after years of moderate success…so keep the shade coming, cause Miss Giselle Knowles-Carter aka Baddie Bey is working on LEGEND status…not MICROWAVE status 🙂

      • King Mark111 /.\ December 31, 2015

        So it’s going take Beyonce in her 30s to do what (may or may not) Taylor did 4 times over in her 20s? The pest are running dry! Lol

      • Fancy BISH December 31, 2015

        King Mark, what’s wrong with that? I love 1989, and it’s my first Taylor album that I’ve purchased…Taylor finally made an album that truly connected with me and fired on all cylinders in my opinion…and Taylor still has room to grow as an entertainer and artist…many people love and respect Beyonce but have never purchased her material…TRUST and BELIEVE Baddie Bey will make an album that connects with the MASSES that know her but haven’t bought into her brand…and she will be a fully seasoned entertainer and as beautiful as she is right now 🙂

      • King Mark111 /.\ December 31, 2015

        Sounds like an excuse to justify Beyonce lack of sales. Taylor never made trash like 7/11 or sings about c*mm on dresses. Call her music microwave when she actually write all her songs? Actually won AOTY, already outsold Beyonce whole career before the age of 25. You pest always have a different excuse when Beyonce is compared to each artist that sold more and done more.

      • Fancy BISH December 31, 2015

        Where did I call Miss Taylor microwave boo boo? Taylor is obviously working on LEGEND status too…and I see what you’re saying that some of Bey’s content is a little underwhelming or undercooked…I actually agree on that…all I’M saying is that Bey will make an album that refines her style into a perfect combination of who she is as an artist and connects commercially as well as critically…Self-titled started something that hopefully continues to grow into something that could lead to a commercial breakthrough…I’m talking a 20 million plus selling album…you don’t think Bey can make a huge selling album? Baddie Bey is too thorough for me to count her out chile! lol

      • King Mark111 /.\ December 31, 2015

        “so keep the shade coming, cause Miss Giselle Knowles-Carter aka Baddie Bey is working on LEGEND status…not MICROWAVE status”
        .,
        Your response to that Taylor stan up there.

      • Fancy BISH December 31, 2015

        King Mark, you need to change your name to Dumb Mark…sorry boo boo lol
        This isn’t directed at you Taylor swifts number 1 fan!!! 🙂

    • Sweaterz December 31, 2015

      That’s a perfect joke of year-end.
      Hmmm. All the best.
      Hope her upcoming album selling faster than this.
      OMG. SMH. SMH. haha

      • Sandra January 2, 2016

        It took Floponcé 12 years to reach the 5 million mark, but it took Adele only 2 weeks to reach it lol and it took Taylor less than a year. Beyonce’s sales are SO basic.

    • December 31, 2015

      And Adele crush her in one week, and you are so annoying.

  3. Natkel December 31, 2015

    The facts are wrong . Beyonce last album sold over 5 million by itself . The facts are off. She still the queen .. But if your talking about US sales and not world wide then yea maybe

    • MUSICHEAD December 31, 2015

      The facts are not wrong. DIL is the first Beyonce album to pass the 5 million mark in the U.S. She’s not a mega seller in this country. Her last album did close to 3 million.

    • LB December 31, 2015

      LMAO 5 million? You’re still pushing that lie?

    • LB December 31, 2015

      Wait so Alicia Keys has already done this? Well Ok Giselle, the “standard” LOL

  4. Duffster Lovato December 31, 2015

    I love me some QUEEN B!!!

  5. MUSICHEAD December 31, 2015

    I was “Dangerously In Love” with Beyonce when this album came out. She took r&b to a new level and brought talent back to the radio. I was so sick and tired of hearing Ashanti and Jlo every 5 minutes. This album is so consistent from start to finish that it’s hard to have a favorite song. Congrats Beyonce!

    • King Mark111 /.\ December 31, 2015

      Yea cause Sings in A Minor didn’t happen.

      • MUSICHEAD December 31, 2015

        I’m not a fan of Alicia OffKeys. Her vocal ability is subpar and her live performances are dreadful. She has always been overrated in my opinion.

  6. Remind! December 31, 2015

    10 years later and it’s ONLY reaching this supposed “milestone”?

    Alicia Keys did this with ONE album and two more of which are at the 4x and 3x platinum mark respectively but yet this THIEF is an alleged “Queen”?

    She has the most basic stats. of any music star right now and her sales is disgustingly subpar and mediocre – I’m glad the mainstream is starting to tire of her ass; how sad it must be to know that Adele has outsold all 5 of her albums with two and Rihanna has outsold her entire singles & albums also! LMAO. 😉 😉 😉

    • Mya December 31, 2015

      Now talk when R**** does it.

    • Mya December 31, 2015

      Beyonceé has sold more records than both Adele & Alicia Keys lmao!

      Rihanna’s doesn’t even have a 3x platinum album lmao! AIN’T will struggle to sell 1 million in the US. One Fact is that Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, & Adele all have albums that outsold Rihanna’s 8 albums lmao!

      Beyoncé has sold over 38M albums (solo) and over 70 million in her career. Rihanna ain’t doing it lmao!

      • OMG Logic!!! December 31, 2015

        Oh honey, your level of delusion isn’t healthy.

  7. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! December 31, 2015

    Actually 1989 has sold….WW sales: @taylorswift13, “1989” 118,000 (8,927,000 total).
    So that’s 3 million outside of the USA… About the same as Beyoncés last album managed WW looool

    Hahahaha what, who wrote this article, David, well I am disappointed.

    Giselle still hasn’t caught up to Britney’s album sales, I mean have her cumulative album sales even outsold Baby one more time?

    Hell even XXLtina has sold more albums than Giselle, and this was even after Giselle had help from Kelly and Michelle to jump start her career.

    J.No No maybe, but then again J.No No was never really a huge force musically, she was more of an actress than a musician. Ashanti, yes I’ll give her that. But let’s stick to the facts, Giselle will need another 10 years to catch up to Brit Brit and XXLtina.

  9. beykim loves bieber one direction beyonce miley and gaga December 31, 2015

    Congrats…still my fav Bey album.. Waiting for iggy”s album tho.How have you guys been?

    • LB December 31, 2015

      lmao the comments,

      “13 years and it isn’t a Diamond album yet….so is Billboard shading or praising Beyonce’s mediocrity?”

      “That’s all? lol. She will never be on the level as Whitney’s (15 million) or Mariah’s (9 million) debuts.”

      “5 million in 10 years and still make the headline. Is Billboard actually mocking her? Btw how are her other albums doing?”

      I AM LIVING HAHAHAHA

      • Royalkev December 31, 2015

        Bey hasn’t touched MJB sales? What album did Mary sell more than 5 million with? … We also need to take into account the fact that music piracy started around the time Bey’s debut happened. Why would Bey be expected to sell 9 – 15 million records under this kind of circumstance. There’s very few diamond albums between 2003 and 2015, so the list of rarities don’t even have to be drawn up by anyone.

      • LB December 31, 2015

        Music piracy also went on in the 90s

      • Royalkev December 31, 2015

        It’s peaked well beyond the 90’s! Back then it wasn’t even half as much of the disadvantage it is today.

      • King Mark111 /.\ December 31, 2015

        Oh Royal Excuses pleasE! Alicia Keys did 6.4M in 2001 and Confessions did 11M and it came out a year after Basically In Love. Stop with the excuses, this album was done the following year and she was back with her maids with Desperately Fulfilled.

      • Mya December 31, 2015

        Rihanna’s US album sales: 10M after 7 albums lmaoooooooooooooooo

      • Royalkev December 31, 2015

        @Mark
        So pressed over Bey aren’t we?! I see you constantly preaching the book of Bey, all of your sermons are soaked in hate! You only seem to give artists allowances when their name starts with the initial Aaliyah.

      • Royalkev December 31, 2015

        … and how many albums went diamond in between Confessions and 21?

    • Mya December 31, 2015

      Beyoncé has sold more than double the amount of what Alicia Keys & Mary J sold lmao. DIL has ouldsold any of their albums worldwide. Lmao!!!!!!!!

  10. LB December 31, 2015

    “Pop musician at the time…and inspire her then-boyfriend Jay-Z to attempt to replicate her success with two artists who go by the names of Teairra Mari and Rihanna a year later.”

    And now her so called replica is her competition, now the replica is even “inspiring” the so called “standard” and has even outdone her, over 150 million records sold, 13 #1s and digital artist of all time.

  11. GameTyme December 31, 2015

    Wow and it only took her 12 1/2 years to do it…What a queen! Get it Beyonce…😂😂

  12. Remind! December 31, 2015

    10+ years…

    Altogether =

    12 years!!!

    loooooooool

  13. LB December 31, 2015

    Wait so Alicia Keys has already done this? Well Ok Giselle, the “standard” LOL

    • beykim loves bieber one direction beyonce miley and gaga December 31, 2015

      Is music of a flop certified anything above impure gold?Who doesn’t go platinum on their first album? You right boo boo Bey ain’t the standard.Rih set a whole new first album flop record.In A lane of her own

      • LB December 31, 2015

        Ya, Music of the sun flopped, but my fav still managed to sell over 150 million records and obtain 13 #1s, something Giselle hasn’t had in 8 years.

      • LB December 31, 2015

        I think Billboard is actually throwing shade, I am sure of it.

    • beykim loves bieber one direction beyonce miley and gaga December 31, 2015

      How’s that working out for your singles artist babe lol.. She is such a singles artist that she can’t sell without one.Now that she can’t get one she’s MIA…

      • LB December 31, 2015

        It’s working out well honey, she has over 150 million records sold, more than Giselle; and is the digital artist of all time, not Giselle.

        Her last #1 was also NOT 8 years ago.

    • beykim loves bieber one direction beyonce miley and gaga December 31, 2015

      Yeah °puffs cigarette° but now that she can’t get one how’s she doing?

      • LB December 31, 2015

        Really great, her sing FourFiveSeconds sold more than Drunk in love, Beyonce’s first single.

        Her other song, B**** better have my money, sold more than 7/11.

        Also, Rihanna managed to chart 3 ballads (Diamonds, Stay, FourFiveSeconds) in the top 5, something Giselle, who allegedly is a good singer, has been unable to do.

  14. beykim loves bieber one direction beyonce miley and gaga December 31, 2015

    Why is LB talking about sales when NoDate oopps… I mean R8 has been officially certified invisible.Thats the problem with these Navy kidx.They were running their mouths like their keyboard thuggin fav be doing em fingers but cant write 8 digit on a paper to use as a release date….Pathetic

  15. LB December 31, 2015

    The Emancipation of Mimi came out years after DIL and it had done it too, but Giselle is the standard? LMAO

  16. HailBeysus December 31, 2015

    Screaming at the lessers coming for Bey and Gurl the lies Thotanna has not even out sold The Queens Album sales! She hasn’t even crossed the 30 million mark KIIIIIII!! Pathetic people gotta jump behind ALICIA KEYS AND MARY J BLIGE!!! LMMFGDAO!!!! Y’all stay jumping ship!!! The Queen is unbothered!

    • LB December 31, 2015

      But Rihanna has sold over 150 million records, way more than Giselle. And this is before the update too.

      • MUSICHEAD December 31, 2015

        Most of those are singles. Rihanna’s album sales are somewhere around 15 million.

      • LB December 31, 2015

        And those singles bring her tally to over 150 million in record sales, more than Giselle who releases more singles and videos per era.

  17. beykim loves bieber one direction beyonce miley and gaga December 31, 2015

    What do the navy’s Queen Bey drags and R8 have in common??? …. You can’t get any of them

  18. Kitteneyez December 31, 2015

    This album is legendary Be With You is flawless

  19. Keon December 31, 2015

    I’m happy for her.
    I’m surprised that bday sold more than sasha fierce.
    i could use another bday.

  20. Slay_Hive December 31, 2015

    Amazing!! A great album and era. Beyonce is certified LEGENDARY!!! I’m waiting patiently on this next era. I have a feeling it will kick off around the Super Bowl.

  21. .:: Centurion ::. December 31, 2015

    I thought DIL already sold 5M copies in the US. :/

  22. Lessors… Lessors everywhere December 31, 2015

    @LB…

    They DRAGGED the living FUQ out of BeyThief…

    The supposed “Queen” hasn’t even outsold Alicia Keys, Mary J Blige, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood in U.S albums sales…

    Hell, when will BeyTHIEFce have an album that will outsell Alicia Keys’ debut album in the U.S or WW? LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOO… and her album came out two years prior.

    Alicia Keys has more SOLID AND MEMORABLE, ICONIC HITS than BeyTHIEFce.

    • LB December 31, 2015

      LMAO the comments are a kiii, but she is an album seller with no Diamond album and taking 12 years to cross the 5 million mark 🙂

  23. The Shade Writes Itself December 31, 2015

    So, this “accomplishment” took 12 years for Beyonce to achieve on her BEST-SELLING album??? Toni, Alicia, Britney, Janet, Whitney, Mariah, Christina, Lauryn, Adele, Taylor, Alanis, Celine, Shania, Carrie, Kelly (Clarkson), Pink and Faith (Hill) have all done this WITHIN ONE YEAR with at least one album. The shade writes itself. And this is why I LOVE when the BeyHIVe get their pink panties in a bunch because since they cannot deny this FACT, they will complain that people who bring the REAL receipts are pressed and hating because they have nothing to brag or drag.

    Happy Kwanzaa and Happy New Year to all.

    BOOP!!!

    • Royalkev December 31, 2015

      First, Happy New Year to you as well …
      Now let’s talk …

      Artists album debuts:

      Toni debuted in 1993
      Britney debuted in 1999
      Janet debuted in 1983, Control (1986)
      Whitney debuted in 1985
      Mariah debuted in 1990
      Christina debuted in 1999
      Lauryn debuted in 1998 (’94 with the Fugees)
      Alanis ‘Jagged Little Pill’ (1995)
      Celine first English album (1990), first 5mil+ seller (1996)
      Shania debuted in 1993, first 5mil+ (1995)

      Before I mention the others, let’s just acknowledge the fact that DC first album debuted in ’98. We all know they’ve sold well past 5 million with 1999’s TWOTW .

      Alicia’s also “done it” with one album in 2001. I’m not taking anything away from her, but ‘Songs in a Minor’ was released before the handicap of illegal downloading, which plagued the music industry.

      Beyonce’s DIL album (2003) – 5x (which came along when illegal downloading really got going). It is still crippling the industry today!

      That leaves:

      #1 Taylor Swift – she’s probably your strongest case, but she does come from the Country world and that seems to be the lone genre unaffected by music piracy.

      #2 Adele – who is the exception to the rule. No one is barely going platinum these days, so we can exhaust Adele’s accomplishments all day, it still doesn’t paint an accurate picture of how music is faring today (especially if you choose to ignore 99% of sales from all the the artists).

      • Royalkev December 31, 2015

        *other artists

      • Just Five Million??? December 31, 2015

        Excuses. Excuses. Can you write another thesis on why Taylor Swift and Adele still drag Beyonce in domestic and worldwide sales? Let me guess. Your excuse is white privilege.

        It matters none when Beyonce debuted because there are over 150 albums that sold more than 5 million copies since DIL dropped. #EmancipationOfMimi #Breakaway #LoveAngelMusicBaby #TaylorSwiftdiscography

        And get this! 25 surpassed DIL in less than a month!!!

      • Royalkev December 31, 2015

        I don’t think you need my thesis, especially since you’ve voluntarily come up with one of your own… As for TEOM, Breakaway and LoveAngelMusicBaby (side eye at that one) selling more than 5, none of those albums is that far ahead of Bey in sells. It’s not like it’s 2010 where a million makes so much more of a difference. Those ’00’s album have maybe one million more sales than DIL does. Was it written somewhere that Bey had to top these random artists sales in order for the feat to be impressive? The fact stands that their ALL beyond the 5x million mark now, yet FAR from diamond.

      • Royalkev December 31, 2015

        I’m not even entertaining ’25’. Who else is anywhere on that level of selling today?

      • Memo December 31, 2015

        Carrie debuted in 2005 and has sold 7.5 million copies with her debut album ”Some hearts.” Even a country, yet local 🙁 singer has outsold the so-called Queen. LMFAO!

  24. .:: Centurion ::. December 31, 2015

    BeyHive needs to stop editing those Wikipedia pages and lying about her sales.

  25. Cough Cough December 31, 2015

    Wow the girls are pressed this morning. Multiple essays and ish. Lol.

  26. Slay_Hive December 31, 2015

    Great consistency! So it’s official, Bey now have a 5x million selling album in 2003’s DIL (which was pretty much seem to be the benchmark to cross in order to obtain the “superstar” diva status in the 90’s). From 2006 on she’s pulled in two triple plus selling albums and one double plus selling album (2010’s). That’s 4 multi-platinum albums in the mid 00’s til now!!! What a feat accomplished and those sales easily rank above at least 75% of the industry during her time of reigning. Bey’s career is awesome, there’s no way to deny it.

    I see nothing has changed on this site. Same no life delusional cokehanna stans jealous of queen bey stats. Didn’t it take the cokehead 3 albums and a fefe dobson makeover before anyone bought an album from her? She couldn’t sell 5 million in the U.S (the biggest market) if her life depended on it so why does the titanic have the audacity to talk about album sales when their fave couldn’t get a #1 until after 7 tries? Also the titanic loves to say it’s been #8 yrs since bey had a #1 hit but hasn’t it also been #3 years since the cokehead had one? And last I checked drunk in love went #2 so bey has come closer to a #1 hit than Rihanna has in 3 years lmao. The titanic stay looking like idiots. Instead of being pressed by queen bey, y’all need to pack your bags so that you’re ready to go into hiding once your fave album finally drops and her career is done for good lmao I can’t wait.

Are u trying to say that wordwide, her level of fame is like MJ? When wiki says DIL is 12 mil it’s inflated, when it’s Aaliyah, it’s her actual sales.

    let me say that i do believe this is an achievement for bey. But where are those 3 beyhive members that are quick to run into any ANTI post and bragging about their dragging skills? Cant they not handle their fave being trashed. Especially that one that keeps refferring to itself in the third person

  77. Bey-Minaj December 31, 2015

    You people are all missing the point here. Beyonce has managed to maintain something called longevity in this business. Something a lot of previous big sellers like Alicia Keys, Gaga and countless others have failed to do. Bey is like fine wine, she keeps getting better and every year her stock rises. I bet the next album she releases will be a million dollar seller first week. Beyonce is the standard because she is the greatest living entertainer of our generation and one of the best vocalist. Will Adele maintain a long and lasting career like bey has? Who knows only time will tell. I think people will eventually get tired of her sad songs and move on to someone else because Adele can’t seem to try anything new.

    Why is everyone comparing Beyoncé to Adele? Both are phenomenal and both are singers but they diverge entirely from there. Pitting these two icons together just shows how foolish you are … How many albums have you sold? Z-E-R-O. So support your idol but their achievements aren’t your achievements 🏻️

    I feel like this article from Billboard was underhandedly/ subtly supposed to be some sort of regulation to us about Beyoncé. We know what her accomplishments were and still are. I feel like billboard wants to regulate people’s feelings and adulation about Adele’s success with her new album by throwing a sidewinder about Bey. Even though Adele isn’t mentioned at all you can tell in its undertone and subtext of comparing the sales of Beyonce’s past albums compared to what is constantly talked about of “Adele’s album record breaking” rave. An artist is only as good, and in demand as their next successful project (single, EP, LP, album, etc). Right now Adele is highly in demand more than ever and that’s fine. Beyonce has been and always will be amazing!!! No one dares deny it. Thank you Billboard for your intended “regulation”.

    The One And Only. A Living Legend. The people can’t comparing Queen B with Adele. Adele sing Soul and Beyoncé R&B. Everybody love Adele. But many people hate Beyoncé because she can do more that favorites artist. Nobody can dance like her in actually, she have the most sold album by a black feminist artist in that decade and the album with the best critic by feminist artist in this century and finally, Billboard say in 2012 she is the Millenium Artist.. Soooo!

    I’m sorry but Beyonce has a better voice than Adele. Adele sings in one key and I have never heard her do a run or a rift. Beyonce’s Dangerously in love grammy performance is vocally superior to any live vocal that I have ever heard from Adele.

    Well done Beyoncé. Very few of her peers have achieved that milestone. 18+ years later, still scanning multi-platunum in the biggest music market (US). Not some of y’all hiding behind Adele’s success ,when your true faves can’t even scan platinum with all the hit singles and heavy promo.

    Do the HIVE really think this is an achievement?

    13 years later and her BEST SELLING ALBUM IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is only at 5X Platinum?

    WTF.

    You would think that she has at least 3 diamond albums the way her fan Base constantly hype her up?

    From this decade thus far, Alicia Keys is the ONLY black female and R&B singer of whom should truly be praised as “Queen”… Why has Beyonce outsold her best selling album yet and “Songs in A Minor” came out two years before and is now at 13M WW?

    Beyonce stats are truly basic and horribly average compares to other R&B stars both in and out of their primes.

    • Mya December 31, 2015

      Beyoncé has outsold Alicia Keys from the US and the rest of the world lmao. Out earned her, out grossed her in tours and films, more successful than her lmao! More awards than her lmaooooo!

  82. blue December 31, 2015

    someone explain to me when selling a million first week equalled to a successful era? Like those are brilliant sales but if your final total is just 3mil how is that anything but a flop? When did first week numbers matter soooo much?

    • King B December 31, 2015

      Exactly. Then why dragged Beyoncé for not selling a million in a week a few days ago. And did Rihanna had a diamond selling singles? she’s queen of singles and you guys like to bragged about her 13 number one singles. But it’s gaga that had a diamond cert instead not Rihanna. She only sold 100 million due to a lot of features and a lot more singles and album than Katy Perry. Look at Taylor, she only had 5 albums and less features and will outsell her soon.

    Bey hasn’t touched MJB sales? What album did Mary sell more than 5 million with? … We also need to take into account the fact that music piracy started around the time Bey’s debut happened. Why would Bey be expected to sell 9 – 15 million records under this kind of circumstance. There’s very few diamond albums between 2003 and 2015, so the list of rarities don’t even have to be drawn up by anyone.”
    .
    I’m a hater? No you always come up with the lamest excuses. If piracy was an issuse, then other artist like Rihanna, Taylor, Katy, Gags and Adele wouldn’t had passed her in sales before their 10 year mark. Beyonce isn’t above these girls in records sales, digital sales and barely in US sales. You pest make Beyonce out to be a Mariah or Adlele when she, with ALL that exposure, stats are just OK.

    • King B December 31, 2015

      Nope. If we look at album sales Gaga and Rihanna didnt sell more than Bey. And Bey actually sold more than Keys and MJB worldwide, but total album sales of AK and MJB will be higher bcuz they had more albums. As for Taylor, she outsold BEY in US. But worldwide, it’s almost the same, but that’s bcuz she transitioned to Pop. Gaga,Clarkson,Aguilera only outsold her on their first album only. P!nk, she had more albums including Greatest Hits. Katy, her albums is ok. Rih’ s highesr selling album is due to her re release and that re release, she releases a few singles to support it unlike BEY who just released one or two but didnt promote it.And lastly, what is so bad about selling 5 million? Oh and if Aaliyah sold 13 million, then DIL is 20 million, pink Friday is 10 million, 21 is 60 million and thriller is 200 million then.

  93. King B December 31, 2015

    It’s the sales that reflect whether you are international or not. If u want to talk about influences, i can list down a lot. Ailee and Hyorin inspired by BEYONCÉ , they do a lot of cover of her songs. Charice is from Philippine, remember? She sang Listen by who? And Agnes Monica from Indonesia is inspired by Bey.Malaysian best selling female artist sings Love On Top. And just a while ago i watched a korean idol danced while Deja Vu played in the background. And 400K is great when Artpop and Prism didnt outsell it. Oh, and didint Aaliyah sold 300k only in the UK? Even after her death? Beyoncés lowest never sold lower than 300k, not even Bday. One more, 300k is so basic especially in 2001, that’s like selling 50k in 2015. DIL SOLD 1.2 MILLION IN UK IN 2003. 300K! BYEEEEEEE 300K BYEEEE

  94. King Mark111 /.\ December 31, 2015

    Beyoncé is so rich that she can afford to make videos for all songs unlike a certain slave. And people actually spend money to buy her videos( as in DVD SALES), rather than make a small income based on YouTube Views and streams. Beyoncé is a smart businesswoman. Self titled is 15.99 including video meaning you buy her albums, you “buy ” her videos. And that does not include Youtube Views (we dont pay anything to watch it).

  98. King Mark111 /.\ December 31, 2015

  100. King B December 31, 2015

    It’s not BEYONCÉ’s fault that people want to buy a re -release. In my country, i cant even find Beyoncé re release anywhere. The stores in my place here only sell Deluxe edition.This only proves one point, Beyhive is rich. whether it’s re release or whatsoever, you want, you buy. You dont want, just illegally download it.Dont act like Bey release and promote the singles. She never really performed Beautiful liar and 7/11.

      Please, RR is not that good like what u guys said. i listened to it twice then i stopped.

  111. DIABETES UNBOTHERED December 31, 2015

    I rank DIL as Beys BEST ALBUM TO DATE simply because it was just as Consistant from song to song as the LightWeight BEYONCE’ & BDAY while while still posessing STRONG Heavyweight songs that can compete with the stronger songs on 4 & IASF. I guess u can say SELF TITLED is her best tho since it was the most dynamic & perfect combination of organic POP/R&B/HIPHOP but certain songs werent that strong like no angel Xo but but its imperfections is apart of the theme so its hard to tell which album is best for me but if i had to chose the absolute best i still say DIL.

  112. jaquala December 31, 2015

    I don’t use Beyonce but 5 million in the US is not bad. Compared to her contemporadies at the time, it’s less than average, but by today’s standards she did good. Beyonce’s sales were never on par with her contemporaries but she managed to outlast all of them save D!ke. One might say because she was the most consistent out of all of them but hey.

Which is funny because the person you stan for has multiple hit songs which usually push album sales YET even with two more projects than Beyonce she has sold less albums and she is behind damn near all her peers in album sales,touring,net worth and acclaim. Like who the [email protected] are y’all fooling? Their is more than ONE facet to having a successful music career but than again this is the same stan base who can only throw out single chart positions because that’s all they have to fall back on.#Tunnelvisionnavy

      Rih is no album seller but she’s a singles seller and it still counts as something being she still holds a high rank in the industry. Personally for me bey sells simply because she is most popular. Neither bey or rih have consistent GREAT albums. DIL was the only album bey put out that has me like damn!!!! However performance is what gives bey more credit. Her team is the bomb.com hands down. People want to believe bey writes it all but really don’t understand the writing process. You can change one sentence in a song but that doesn’t make you a writer we all know who the good writers are instead of pinning rig and bey against each other bringing them together would be epic

    Haha, it took Adele only 2 weeks to sell 5 million with ’25’, but it took Beyonce TWELVE years to sell 5 million with ‘Dangerously in flop’. Congrats lol.
