Nashville, Houston, & New York Police Join Boycott Against Beyonce’s #FormationTour

Published: Friday 19th Feb 2016 by Rashad

Ouch!

While fans are snapping up tickets to Beyonce‘s highly anticipated ‘Formation’ tour at a rapid pace, there are some who have been quite vocal about their intent to be absent:  municipal police authorities.

Indeed, after Miami’s fraternal order announced their plan to boycott the singer’s security detail when the tour kicks off there on April 27th, now Nashville, New York City, and even the singer’s hometown of Houston, TX are joining the #BoycottBeyonce train.

Get the details below:


Via WKRN:

“The president of Nashville’s Fraternal Order of Police is telling Metro officers not to volunteer to work Beyonce’s May concert.

Friday is the first day officers can sign up to aid with extra security and traffic control before, during and after the show at Nissan Stadium.

However, Danny Hale is asking officers not to do so unless mandated by Chief [of police] Steve Anderson.”

Via CNN:

Houston Police Officers’ Union president Ray Hunt told CNN the union is allowing officers to decide on their own whether to boycott Beyonce’s tour. He said he that while he watched the music video, he can’t tell for sure what it means and is hoping Beyonce will explain.

The New York Police Department’s Sergeants Benevolent Association quickly announced it would back the boycott, and Bill Johnson, the executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations, said Friday that “We fully support individual officers’ and their unions’ call for the boycott. Why would any group of working men and women support a rich celebrity who openly glorifies murderers? Why would anybody?”

    Lmfaooooo if they do this rest assured things are going to get seriously messy in the USA!!! Im SCREAMING at my QUEENS IMPACT!!!!

    • HailBeysus February 19, 2016

      One of the best comments I read on social media was about a Meme saying Beyonce needed to apologize to The police and US soldiers. Then a 45 year old US soldier commented and said “Im white and a 45 uear old Veteran. Beyonce does not owe me an apology! I did not enlist and get deployed 4 times for someone’s right to freedom of speech to be suppressed. We may not agree with it but nonetheless, its what i fought for! So she does not owe me an apology!”

      • Truth(Nicki WHACK and Adele FAT…WHET!!) February 20, 2016

        QUEEN!!!

      • Denise February 20, 2016

        I agree. She has a right to express herself. Any type of government interference with that is a violation of the Constitution. They need to take the plank out of their own eye before removing the speck out of Beyonce’s eye. If anyone glorifies murder it’s the police. Especially when they don’t blink an eye when one of their own murders innocent unarmed citizens.

      • Realtalk February 20, 2016

        Only common sense so far. I feel with we as tax payers, we our taxes are paying you the police to serve and protect no matter what concert or person, so I expect for you to do your job and if you can’t you need to be let go/fire so those that do their jobs still have a job.

    • Taylor Tori Azalea February 19, 2016

      Really tho they give too much power when everyone knows at the end of the day she’ll win (poor kesha )
      .
      No wonder she keeps co – topping the powerful artist lists with my fave

    • trellbeylike February 19, 2016

      But at the end of the day she still gonna have volunteers and if she dont have enough they will be forced to work those stadiums. Lmfaooo funny how taxes work lmfnalsbdjdkshfbs #BeyoncéWins Beyoncé’s impact is too real!

    • Danyboo February 19, 2016

      SO IF PEOPLE GET HURT OR SOMETHING BREAKS OUT RADICALLY THE POLICE JUST DONT GIVE AF.. OBAMA SHOULD GO IN AN OVER RULE THAT BOYCOTT BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY IT IS THERE JOB TO PROTECT AND SERVE THE PEOPLE… BEYONCE MADE HER POINT THEY JUST DONT WANT TO SEE BLACK PEOPLE TREATED EQUALLY

    • Truth(Nicki WHACK and Adele FAT…WHET!!) February 20, 2016

      ALL HALE THE QUEEN!!

  2. RASHAD February 19, 2016

    Boycott all you want! When you have 50,000-70,000 people attending a concert it becomes a matter of security for EVERYONE! They will all have to work regardless if they want to or not, the city will not let a potential accident occur at a unsupervised concert or law suite happen just because you got a bunch of cops mad because Beyoncé exposed these crooked ass cops for their unjustified killings in the black community!

    • dydy972 February 19, 2016

      THANK YOU !
      Looks like protecting citizens does not matter because of a music video.
      Some police people pretend that beyoncé, because of her video is encouraging hate for police, but actually they do it themselves because i would be extra furious if my daughter or my son goes to a concert and there’s no maximum security in the location, especially with all the terrorists attacks nowadays.
      Police is suppose to serve the community, no matter what happens and this is not serving, this is SELFISH !

  3. MsYonce February 19, 2016

    Y’all don’t have to volunteer that’s you’re choice but let’s not act like y’all don’t have to send police officers to work there. Y’all have no choice so y’all can just stop already

    • RASHAD February 19, 2016

      Thank you they know they have to work regardless. All that traffic on the highways and people taking subways it too many risk for people attending her concert that will suffer if cops boycott! When they see them bills come through they asses will show up. A few hours in a day will not kill them more importantly they acting like they have to sit in a room and talk to her for hours on end!

      • MsYonce February 19, 2016

        Ikr! If Formation video got them this mad then you know the video is the real deal the TRUTH

  4. fatusankoh February 19, 2016

    They are all rascit haters don’t want to see a black star like bey succeed but they are not God every body see what they are doing

    • Realtalk February 20, 2016

      Point is, it’s our tax paying dollars that these so call racist policemen are upset because of a video/performance was done that have them concern now that people have realize that black lives do matter, in fact all lives matter and those policemen that hide behind the Mack of a police uniform(kkk) is being call out and they aren’t happy. So I feel if they so call want to boycott the “Formation” concerts in which our tax dollars are indeed being paid for protections to all who ever is performing in venues for concerts, they should be fire point blank period because their contract says to serve and protect and we need officers that will abide as such not these racist wet backs that don’t seem to remember or take their jobs serious by oath.

Beyoncé at no time ever made comments she was or against police.

  5. Rebelhive February 19, 2016

    Lawddd the girls risking there jobs for Beyonce! That’s like you a cashier but don’t wanna ring cause the customer said something you don’t like

    • Metzo February 19, 2016

      Ludacris

  6. Metzo February 19, 2016

    So they risk putting lives of 50k+ ppl and those around the city in danger because of a damn SB performance? Irresponsible and childish. The police has become a joke

  7. B2B February 19, 2016

    I just can not comprehend what murders she is glorifying. This is ridiculous and she should just hire an all black clean cut security force. #FightBackBey

  8. Nicki+Ciara-Alicia = February 19, 2016

    “You know you that b**** when you cause all this conversation”

  9. Prius February 19, 2016

    This has to be promo for her tour, it just has to be (like the elevator fiasco). She didn’t say anything negative about police officers. They are appreciated worldwide. She’s just tired of the ones who abuse their power by killing unarmed blacks. What a mess.?

  10. Taylor Tori Azalea February 19, 2016

    Now Watching: straight outa campton…..

  11. LB February 19, 2016

    Lmao not even Houston

    • Cinnamon Girl February 19, 2016

      You cannot seriously be laughing. Beyonce has to add more dates while Rihanna the Dope Feign has to cut back on dates

    • HailBeysus February 19, 2016

      Formation Tour solid 40 STADIUMS AND COUNTING ——> ANTI TOUR OVER 70 DATES AT ANNOUNCEMENT FAST FORWARD 4 MONTHS SHE IS CANCELING SHOWS DOWN SIZING SHOWS POST PONING SHOWS AND CUTTING DATES BECAUSE NOW THE TOUR IS AT 68 DATES KIII!!!

  12. LmfaoHoe February 19, 2016

    Lol lord today this is proof right here that Bey hit a mark. Now they wanna claim her Public Enemy # 1 like how they did MJ and OJ. S*** if I were Bey I wouldn’t need them, I prefer she get the national guards (black ones at that) show theses assholes we don’t need em. Lol we still going to the concert b**** ??✌

  13. Authentic February 19, 2016

    White america is loosing its grip of power. We minorities are approaching our full potential as citizens in this society that Isn’t built for us. We are superior in many aspects except economic due to systematic issues…

  14. Naomi February 19, 2016

    The Tour will still slay and gross high which is all that matters. Not being cancelled because of poor sales.

  15. Naomi February 19, 2016

    Beyonce making such a huge cultural impact with one performance and song will go down in history. She came she saw and she most certainly will conquer. Job done.

  16. King Mark111 /.\ February 19, 2016

    So what the pest are saying that Formation made such an impact that even with streams, radio play and Superbowl halftime show, it still didn’t chart. Ok, some queen. At least top #50. The excuses. Yet no reasonable excuse. So what did Beyonce block Rihanna on again?

    • LmfaoHoe February 19, 2016

      Honey why are you doing this I love both Bey and Riri (including Aaliyah whom I sure would not tolerate this un excuseable behavior) need to chill. Cause firstly Formation did it purpose by starting a conversation and is clearly doing so, hence the police departments are acting like fools while the Bet slay (concert venues as proof) and remains unbothered by this nonsense. Check the SNL video of when America realize Bey is black. Its very accourate on white ppl reaction.

      • LmfaoHoe February 19, 2016

        * while Bey slay

  17. King Mark111 /.\ February 19, 2016

    Because I see Rihanna name in the top 10 of Both charts. I don’t see Beyonce. And she had a music video out, yet didn’t chart. Y’all better cling to tour sales, because that’s all you clowns have at this point. Poor Sony slave.

    • Barb B**** February 19, 2016

      Hun just admit Beyonce is absolutely murdering your depressed fave and stop trying.

      • King Mark111 /.\ February 19, 2016

        In what? Not on the billboard. Not less than a million WW Nicki Stan talking about flops. She even knew better than to attend the Grammys, she knew she was going to walk out with the same numbers of Grammys she walked in with. 0

      • LB February 19, 2016

        DEATH!!!! Nicki is still Grammyless

      • Barb B**** February 19, 2016

        Why would she chart on Billboard when she doenst even have a eligable song? Shes slaying everywhere else and Rihanna is falling. No one is talking about anti or its underwhelming songs and no one is purchasing her tix but everyone is racing for Beyonces. Its all Beyonce. But keep seething I guess.

      • Naomi February 19, 2016

        Does Aaliyah have a Grammy?

    • HailBeysus February 19, 2016

      Lmao! Bey is beyond the charts huntea!! Her impact is more real than ever!! I get why you mad one of favs is bones six feet under and the other is having mental breakdowns and on the verge of being hospitalized for the H-I-V from being a hoeee!! Huntea your just going to have to find a way to DEAL!!!

    • remi February 19, 2016

      her video was unlisted meaning her views will not be submitted to Nielsen Soundscan

  18. LB February 19, 2016

    More receipts that this is all a publicity stunt. The Republican doesn’t speak on political views because she doesn’t know what she is talking about. This is why there is such a disconnection between Formation the song, and the video depicting her proud Texan roots with footage shot in Louisiana LMAO.
    ,

    She sang at Barack Obama’s inauguration, but it wasn’t because she sympathises with his political ideals. “I played at the inauguration because there were a lot of kids in the audience that I wanted to reach, that’s all,” she said afterwards. “Maybe one day I will speak of my political beliefs, but only when I know what I’m talking about.”

    [Same article]

  19. Barb B**** February 19, 2016

    She is snatching Rihannas wig so hard this era it’s embarrassing. All she needs to do is drop am album now to annihilate her and her fans even more

    • King Mark111 /.\ February 19, 2016

      Rihanna in on top of both charts, where is Beyonce on the charts period? The Planned Parenthood lp is still less than a million sold WW. Maybe K Mart can buy some from the Cash Money slave. Loke Birdman said, Drake and Nicki are going nowhere. His words, no payment for them. Lol

      • Barb B**** February 19, 2016

        Seethe on Mark. #Save Anti.

  20. King Mark111 /.\ February 19, 2016

    And stop with Beyonce making an impact with this trashy ass song. This is no What’s Going On, Rhythm Nation, they don’t really care about us or even where is the love. Stop it
    .
    Now you guys are pro black, I recall you clowns saying “Aaliyah was only big in the black community, Whites weren’t checking for her.” And you clowns downed every black award show in favor for the Grammys for years. Now since the right wing is getting in that @ss, you unapologetically black. With a blonde wig, BYE ! ?

    • RASHAD February 19, 2016

      I don’t see any of Rihanna song causing a national meltdown… Just saying!

      • King Mark111 /.\ February 19, 2016

        And I don;t see the Navi saying so. So lay down.

    • RihYonce February 19, 2016

      Lies formation created the same impact that those songs you named did , where is fav again ? Oh & what impact did she make with her mediocre ass vocals , dancing & performaces ? Oh ok

  21. MsYonce February 19, 2016

    @Mark It’s not on iTunes you idiot so it won’t chart on the hot 100 its not an excuse its a fact. Secondly the streams can’t count if the song isn’t being SOLD. You know like when Anti was streamed 13 million times on Tidal but Billboard didn’t count it cause Tidal was no longer selling it. Lmao you’re making yourself look stupid stop please I’m begging

    • Naomi February 19, 2016

      Bloop.

    • RihYonce February 19, 2016

      Don’t Entertain these bottom feeders, they want the Queen to lose so bad . But watch how she work “Cuz I Slay”

  22. Naomi February 19, 2016

    Lol @ a certain two people letting off steam in Beyonces post.

  23. LB February 19, 2016

    The republican who wishes she was Latina and is now taking jabs at the Police after fundraising for the Obamas, only to admit that she didn’t care for them at all at the inauguration, she wanted to reach the kids.

    This woman is lost

    • Biracial Butterfly February 20, 2016

      You do know being latino is a culture and not a race right? you can very well be black and be latino. You should really consider going to school and getting an education.

  24. LB February 19, 2016

    The criteria to chart on the hot 100 are airplay, streams and sales. A song can chart without hitting iTunes.

    OMG the hive…smdh

    • MsYonce February 19, 2016

      Airplay,stream and SALES! Tell me when has Billboard made a rule about songs charting without being on iTunes? In fact name one song that has?

      • LB February 19, 2016

        If a song can chart without streams or airplay, it can chart without sales. This was recently added so of course there won’t be one. However as long as the song is available for streaming and airplay, there is no reason it should not chart.

        The fact is simple, the song is horrible and no one is listening to it nor any radio playing it, hence it not even hitting the bubbling under charts.

      • Naomi February 19, 2016

        Like no one purchased tickets to anti tour?

      • nick February 20, 2016

        maybe you should all check billboard more closely

    • RASHAD February 19, 2016

      Meanwhile Rihanna topping charts yet she still can’t sell stadiums which is why she moving her shows to arenas. Cops/security will be at her show regardless if they want to be there or not. No state/city won’t take that risk of having 50-70k people fending for themselves on the highway, subways, and a stadium with no supervision!

      • LB February 19, 2016

        And yet you’re lying about buying The republican’s concert tickets. Run along troll

    • HailBeysus February 19, 2016

      Death!!! You’re so fuxking dumb and basic! A song cannot chart if its free regardless of streamings on Tidal! Its called On Demand Streaming dumb hoeee! I CANNOT AT THESE HEAUXS GRASPING AT INVISIBLE STRAWS TO TRY AND “DRAG” ???????????????

      • LB February 19, 2016

        It can chart if it’s available for streaming and airplay, which formation is. The song is just horrible and nobody wants to hear or play it, that’s why it is not on the charts.

    • BeyBarbFenty February 19, 2016

      AFRO-latinas exist.

  25. ?Queen Molly? February 19, 2016

    Its never that deep how about you protest against Keshas r***** producer smh

      • RihYonce February 19, 2016

        Was she not black on BEYONCÉ & 4 ? Even on IAM.. She had so hood songs “Diva” & “Video Phone” ? Did you forget , how about you get your fav to stop pretending like she’s goodie goodie when we all know she’s a h**

      • ?Queen Molly? February 19, 2016

        Sweetie beyonce just started claiming you hoodhoes about a year ago staaahp!

  27. LB February 19, 2016

    Anyway Work is #3 on the UK charts, hopefully after the Brits performance, it will hit #1. Rihanna needs to drop the video though.

    • RihYonce February 19, 2016

      Exactly I don’t understand what she’s waiting for , wasn’t the video shot before it was actually released ?

      • Barb B**** February 19, 2016

        Formation happened.

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 19, 2016

      Lol Lets get back to you ignorantly not knowing that Latino isn’t a RACE.
      How old are you?

      • LB February 19, 2016

        When did I say Latina is a race? I’ll wait

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 19, 2016

        You’re trying to bash Beyonce because she said that she admires the Latino CULTURE. Why?
        What exactly does that have to do with being Black.

      • LB February 19, 2016

        She also said she wishes she was latina, don’t forget that part.

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 19, 2016

        No s*** Sherlock! I get that part. I’m just trying to figure out what’s wrong with that statement..
        Latino is a culture.

      • LB February 19, 2016

        Well explain it to me, all of the sudden she is celebrating her “Texan” heritage and wishes she was Latina? LMAO the smell of bullsh*t is thick from your fav

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 19, 2016

        Heritage?
        Texas is a state….
        What does that have to do with the anything?

  28. RihYonce February 19, 2016

    The Queen has everyone upset ?? her new album should outdo Self-Titled ! / NEW TEA: expect an album announcement soon ☺️? The album WILL NOT be a surprise this time bookmark me !

  29. ?Queen Molly? February 19, 2016

    Crying at hives excuses on why formation is flopping. Like LB said all it takes is streams to chart and with all this controversy surrounding the song you’d think it could atleast chart in top 80 chileeeee.

    • Naomi February 19, 2016

      You can’t chart on streams alone when the song actually isn’t available to purchase. Those are facts not excuses.

      • LB February 19, 2016

        Provide a receipt of this rule

      • ?Queen Molly? February 19, 2016

        Aka not all of the hoodhive can afford tidal which is why the streams are LACKING!

      • Naomi February 19, 2016

        You said the rule yourself above idiot. Why wasn’t antis free streams counted towards her sales before it became available if yiu can chart on just streams? Wow. And they call the Hive dumb.

      • LB February 19, 2016

        But Anti’s streams were counted, that’s why it debuted at #27.

        The fact is a song can chart as long as it fulfills some of the criteria, not all.

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 19, 2016

        No s*** Sherlock! I get that part. I’m just trying to figure out what’s wrong with that statement….
        Latino is a culture.

      • Naomi February 19, 2016

        @LB. The free streams prior to its release (that cheated her way to platinum plaque) were not stop lying. The streams were counted AFTER it went on sale and it only sold 460 copies. Which was the reason she was dragged so badly.

      • LB February 19, 2016

        It sold 460 and streamed the rest, hence debuting at #27.

        I’m still waiting for that receipt by the way

      • Naomi February 19, 2016

        Exactly. SALES and streams. Now where has a song ever charted on the HOT 100 from streams alone. And why were Rihannas free streams NOT counted?

    • RihYonce February 19, 2016

      Such as dumb ass . The song is FREE!!!! So it can’t chart & it’s still getting AirPlay , meanwhile your favs career was over in 2008 & she’s still trying

      • ?Queen Molly? February 19, 2016

        Bitttch get your fat funky ass out my reply section. Get Hoeyonce on a CHART! Overrated trash just performed on superbowl and still struggling to chart ????

  30. Tyler Makiavelli February 19, 2016

    So, this is what its come to? White America is showing its true colors.

  31. Naomi February 19, 2016

    Aweee looks like Rihanna isn’t the only one having meltdowns. Her fans are following suit. ?

    • LB February 19, 2016

      Still waiting for that receipt

      • RihYonce February 19, 2016

        She can’t because she made it up ????

  32. Hivehighness February 19, 2016

    LB and Mark will say anything to discredit Beyonce, I’m convinced you two are lifeless fools

  33. Tyler Makiavelli February 19, 2016

    Will somebody please tell LooseBowls that “Latina” isn’t a race.

  34. ?Queen Molly? February 19, 2016

    @Naomi bittttch the hive is DUMB! I played they ass for a whole year! ??????

      Good for you do you want a medal?

      • ?Queen Molly? February 19, 2016

        No sis the egg on the hives face when I disowned them was more than enough.

      • Naomi February 19, 2016

        Good for you Molly. Do you have a life? Because boasting about that sense of accomplishment screams desperate.

    Formation was #18 on that chart ^^

    Now that I have brought the FACTS, why is FLOPTATION missing from the Hot 100?

    • MsYonce February 19, 2016

      Its not being sold which mean it charting of airplay alone.

      • LB February 19, 2016

        Airplay and streams. You said it cannot chart without sales, I have proven it can.

        Why is it missing from the Hot 100 though?

      • MsYonce February 19, 2016

        It’s an AIRPLAY CHART WTF ?

      • LB February 19, 2016

        LMAO Read the criteria again, I copied it off Billboard Biz website.

    LMAO. LB the struggle is so real right now. If streaming counted towards sales, why were Rihannas free streams NOT counted on billboard as confirmed through an OFFCICIAL statement by them. Which EVERYONE has seen. Provide a receipt of ANYWHERE song chatting from streams alone, prior to sales releases. DEATH @ you using an AIRPLAY chart. We are talking about the HOT 100.

    • LB February 19, 2016

      Still waiting for the receipt.

      I’ve brought facts, you can chart without sales, where are yours?

      • Naomi February 19, 2016

        You haven’t bought facts at all. You habe proved you can chart on an AIRPLAY chart from streams, NOT the HOT 100. Show me a song that’s charted on the Hot 100 from streams alone and explain why Rihannas free streams were not counted.

    She also said she wishes she was latina, don’t forget that part

    So what if she does? There are Afro Latino’s , White Latino’s , Mestizo Latino’s, and Mulatto Latino’s. Latin Americans come in all shapes sizes, and races. Just like Americans. So how exactly is that a diss? I don’t get it…..

    • LB February 19, 2016

      So which one do you think Beyonce wishes she was, with that blonde wig and swagger jacking J.No No all through the 00s? I’ll wait

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 19, 2016

        Black. Because being Latino has absolutely nothing to do with race. It’s a culture ….

      • LB February 19, 2016

        LMAO sure…

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 19, 2016

        “Sure” what?
        How is saying wanting to be a part of a certain culture a bad thing?

      • LB February 19, 2016

        I’ll let you figure that out Miss Tyra, but you damn well know what the republican is thinking and meant with that statement.

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 19, 2016

        Actually no, I don’t…..
        Whether Beyonce was from Cuba, Puerto Rico , or Brazil she’d still be black.
        There are more Black people in Latin America than in the U.S. due to the slave trade. You sound like an idiot.

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 19, 2016

        BTW American isn’t a race either dummy.

    Oopssss From Billboard

    Billboard Hot 100

    The YouTube streaming data is now factored into the chart’s ranking, enhancing a formula that includes Nielsen’s digital download track sales and physical singles sales; as well as terrestrial radio airplay, on-demand audio streaming, and online radio streaming, also tracked by Nielsen.

  40. LB February 19, 2016

    Also from Billboard:


    Hot R&B Songs
    This week’s most popular current Hot R&B songs, ranked by radio airplay audience impressions as measured by Nielsen Music, sales data as compiled by Nielsen Music SoundScan and streaming activity data from online music sources tracked by Nielsen Music. Songs are defined as current if they are newly-released titles, or songs receiving widespread airplay and/or sales activity for the first time.



    Formation was #18 on this chart, which still proves my point. Nice try though

    • Naomi February 19, 2016

      You have proved no point at all. That chart =/= Billboard Hot 100.

  41. Naomi February 19, 2016

    Trying to cling to anything to drag and failing, like your fave.

    Lets talk about some REAL S*** like why local Beyonce is selling out Wembley in minutes and international icon Rihanna is being forced to cancel.

    I really wanna know….

    Let’s put this situation that way : a fat paycheck at the end of the month ( thanks to working at the concert) or less money and boycott beyoncé ( who they surely don’t care about).
    What do you think they gonna choose?

From 3 flop singles last year to a unbelievable 460 debut to finish with a half postponed half downgrade tour you guys have no room to talk! sitting talking about a1.29$ Mcsingle. Why didn’t you buy her tickets? why did she have to cancel stadium dates that the Queen sold out in 30 min?? Why??? Why??? Why???

    YES! Beyonce is making Madonna impact. We all remember when they told Madonna we will arrest you if you preform these sexual acts in your tour. These cops are all bullies and whimps! Face the facts and the real issues with Black Americans!!!

    Here is your proof @LB. Read it and weep.SMH. try not to be so delusional next time…

    MIXING DATA

    While many of the charts in Billboard are either pure sales or radio charts, we mingle sales, radio and streaming data on a few of our signature charts: the Billboard Hot 100, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, R&B Songs, Rap Songs, Hot Country Songs, Hot Rock Songs, Hot, otDance/Electronic Songs, Hot Christian Songs and Hot Gospel Songs  (as well as two charts based on the same data feeds as the Hot 100: the Hot 100’s Bubbling Under chart, which ranks the top 25 titles that have not yet reached the Hot 100).

    We use these three pools of data because while the consumer’s decision to purchase or stream is a significant vote of popularity, singles have a job that extends beyond being a sales vehicle: to capture radio play and, hopefully, stimulate album sales.

    These hybrid charts each use formulas to mix Nielsen Music sales with audience and streaming data. The Hot 100 utilizes the a la carte sale of downloaded tracks with sales of the few retail-available singles that are still shipped to stores. The chart also factors in streaming audio and video data (both on demand and passive) from all popular formats monitored by Nielsen Music.

    First Janet and now Beyonce. The Superbowl curse is real lol. Beyonce won’t recover from this. She will continue to tour successfully but white folks (the majority of her fanbase) are going to give her the Dixie Chicks treatment from now on lol.

  50. Jay Alford February 19, 2016

    It’s really not that serious. Point blank. They’re not going to allow a sold out concert to be held without any security of any sort. Smh, crazy what this country has come to, getting this bent out of shape cause of a music video and performance to purposely NOT protect the public. Okay……

  51. Justice February 19, 2016

    Since we are talking about murderers who is gonna expose and eliminate the KKK and where are all of those hoodies and blanket sheets lmfao.

    • justice February 19, 2016

      Now let me clear this up I’m not a beyonce fan and I do not support her decision but you can’t judge one person without judging other people and organizations. Maybe we shouldn’t judge at all. The only opinion that matters is God Almighty.

  52. eric February 19, 2016

    The seats are sold. Boycott if you want to.

  53. .:: Centurion ::. February 20, 2016

    That’s what she gets for exacerbating racial tensions just to sell tickets. She is going to Hell.

    • Cherylsoldierr February 20, 2016

      Sis you need to worry about the violence in your African village first tbh

  54. No favs, just here for the music February 20, 2016

    Like I said in the last post Beyonce can buy her own police force if she wanted! F*** you pigs were never needed. Arrogant pieces of s*** smh

  55. yesterday was Aaliyah 37birthday to the good music February 21, 2016

    This is so ridiculous and messy

  56. Reload February 21, 2016

    Beyonce is is extremely fine and beautiful in the Formation video, let’s be clear on that, but she is using a trendy nonsensical movement to promote her music. I don’t think she believes in Black Lives Matter protest philosophies but has injected life into it by way of her imagery in the video. The BLM movement denigrates police and promotes distortions of law enforcement and distracts black people from what really ails our communities which is lack of knowledge and the desire to attain it.Until that is remedied we will be beggars rather than producers and easily ignored except by whites who seem to be the only racial group checking for us. Police also have free speech rights and in their off-duty they they can choose not to work security for Beyonce.

      Uncle Ruckus much??
