Beyonce‘s ‘Lemonade’ has spilt all over the Billboard charts and broken records in the process.

Sip up the full story below…

Published today, the latest issue of the Billboard 200 reveals that Queen Bey rules atop of the tally.

Per Nielsen Soundscan’s data, the set opened with sales of 653,000 (485,000 of which are pure sales, with the remaining numbers coming courtesy of TIDAL streams).

The feat sees Beyonce become the only act to reach #1 with their first six studio albums – and, crucially, the only to artist to debut in the top spot with said releases (rather than climb after release).

And there’s more.

‘Despite its unorthodox Saturday roll-out on HBO and 24 hour TIDAL exclusivity, Lemonade’ has achieved the biggest first week debut of any album in 2016.

Major.

With its songs also rocking retail, there’s undoubtedly more slayage from the campaign to come.

Stay tuned!

      • #JACKIE May 2, 2016

        I’ll even throw in WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE which debuted at #1 Kii. Are you mad?

        Oh yeah his mixtape “If You’re reading This it’s too late” even debuted at #1 LMAO soooo technically he has 6 albums to debut at #1 also ahahhahahaha and you were saying???

      • Alex May 2, 2016

        @jackie can u not comprehend?? ALBUMS not MIXTAPES!!! Bye HO!!

      • #JACKIE May 2, 2016

        That’s why I said “even his mixtape” dumb ASS can YOU read?! Kii! Mixtape or NOT, it was still released to iTunes and it debuted at #1. It was not a “datpiff” exclusive sooooo bye! Even if you subtract that, he had FIVE albums debut at #1. Stay pressed slime bag.

      • Alex May 2, 2016

        @jackie you should have NEVER even brought up the MIXTAPES!! But EVERYONE is slaying Cedric ole “He’ll be coming around that mountain when he comes looking ass”!!! Lmao!!!

      • #JACKIE May 2, 2016

        Stop deflecting B****! Truths ugly ass said all of drakes albums didn’t debut at #1 so I spilled some piping hot truth tea. Even his mixtape debuted at #1. Who is doing that? Nobody B**** so yeah you are DISMISSED. ➡️

    • IntellectualSir May 2, 2016

      If you’re using Adele and Drake (2 of biggest artist in the world in their respective genres) to slam beyonce your gonna have to try harder. You’ve only proved that she’s in the same category as them. Adele sold 900k in one day (who else) drake sold 600k in one day (who else)…..the pettiness is real.

      • Toerag May 2, 2016

        And they say shes irrelevant and yet she can pull thes numbers above 400k on pure sales unlike Rachet even Bieber sold better this round than anytime before and still selling not a fan of his but just saying drakes doing well glad someone needs to do something decent in his genre lets face it it wont be fake cakes

      • norosy3 May 2, 2016

        No one using anyone to slam bey the hives put her against the whole planet now she getting beat by the very white girls she trying to be bey is white she ain’t black her white friends so she deserve to be compare to her white counterparts

    • Maurice May 2, 2016

      I’m so tired of y’all counting the sales and trying to drag people for their numbers.
      The album is a solid production. Jesus.

    • obsidian May 2, 2016

      @saintwest…..for all of you ill-informed idiots, Drake amassed so much sales in the first week due to the success of Hotline Bling; the sales and streams from the single has been factored into the sales of his latest album “Views from the 6!” I swear, this generation of music consumers get dumber by the minute!

    • andrew May 2, 2016

      hold up and don’t be anti-formation, get in some lemonade and work your views in one dance!

      stop comparing numbers, formation is an anthem, work is a raggae hit, one dance is a hot jam!

    • norosy3 May 2, 2016

      I thought the hives said she would do a million anyway the glass ceiling just shattered come through drake

    • Danyboo May 2, 2016

      Adele and Drake are still fairly new artist the difference between them and bey is that beyonce has proven herself. Were still waiting on what drake and adele are capable of. Theyre the hype right now. Beyonce on the other hand is a living legend that has the world in her hand. What other artist you know that came out in 97 still going platinum. Beyonce fans are solid theyve grown up with her. Drake Adele and fans are moving with the times. They hot today but who knows about tomorrow.

    • Danyboo May 2, 2016

      Yall acting like britney eminem 50 cent and nysnc wasnt doing this back when beyonce was out. Shes never pulled in 1M first but still remains the Queen. Michael Jackson nor Madonna has over hyped people do though. I mean would really sit at an adele concert 15 20 years from now

      • Dvokals May 2, 2016

        So are we ignorant to the fact that Hip hop, country and pop music always sells more than R&B! Beyoncé is an R&B artist that has managed to keep consistent sales since 97 with Destinys Child and 03 by herself. She does tap into other genres to garner a nice audience but she is identified as an R&B artist. Which other R&B artist has been this consistent since 97?? I really don’t give a damn about numbers cuz at the end of the day we ALL know that Taylor and Adele would be slayed vocally and they definitely don’t wanna be on the same stage as Bee! That’s what I respect the ability to acknowledge your gift/craft and perfect it to the point where others can only dream of being on the same level!

    • Rome May 2, 2016

      It’s sad, her fans actually turn people away from the brand that is beyonce. I know so many people who don’t f*** with her solely cause her fans are disrespectful towards any and everyone.

    • Blake May 2, 2016

      Lol beyonce had 100 million streams in 5 days if it was just realised on i tunes and not streaming on tidal they sales would of been even more she could drop pointless singles to just burn out if she wanted that would sure be number 1 but she’s above that and would rather put out a body of art can’t you tell the difference? You need to take a seat

  2. #JACKIE May 2, 2016

    Congrats to her! She outsold Anti within a few days kii. She can’t get too comfortable though because Drake is coming to SLAY.?

    • SaintWest May 2, 2016

      THE SELF-DRAG! She outsold ciara in seconds. Youre embarrassing and the most dragged commentator on tgj kiiiiiiii

      • #JACKIE May 2, 2016

        So, the fact still stands that Rihanna FLOPPED. *uses Lemon juice to remove the dust collecting on Anti albums*

      • Watermelondrea May 2, 2016

        Trolll! Poor thing is clinging to Beyoncé to try and drag Rihanna. BEYHIVE don’t use hunni and so does beyonce not use Ciara LOL. Beyonce outsold HeHe in minutes and so did drake and every artist you cling to.

      • #JACKIE May 2, 2016

        I’m not clinging to ANYONE bih so try again! I’m just stating FACTS! Btw I have said that Lemonade is BORING countless times so how about you cling to the free clinic. Those T Cell numbers are dropping fast.

    • Donnice May 2, 2016

      But she won’t outsell Anti within the year. Rihanna marathon seller. Beyonce strong first week then falls off. We’ll see which album ends up selling the most.

    • No Stan Zone May 2, 2016

      And Ciara? This is like calling someone else’s child bad, while yours is in prison.

  3. Quinn May 2, 2016

    Congrats Bey! Hard work and consistency pays off. Lemonade is amazing by the way, can’t stop listening.

  4. truthtea May 2, 2016

    Yet, her albums tend to take major dips in the weeks after and her albums barely manage to sell 5 million worldwide! Numbers don’t lie hunty!

    • Alex May 2, 2016

      @truthtea well then why can’t Rihanna catch up to her in album sales since they DIP so much?? Quit hating and buy more than SINGLES from your fave!

      • Donnice May 2, 2016

        Rihanna don’t need to catch up. She has sold more albums worldwide than Beyonce. She is second only to Madonna.

    • RihYonce May 2, 2016

      Her albums never leave the charts , BEYONCÉ is still charting after over 100 weeks & IAMSF also charted all the way until after 4 came out so your wrong try again

    • Mar May 2, 2016

      What albums are you exactly talking about? I don’t know how yall argue with these people. Lieing , making up yall own facts at the spur of a moment. Lmao. sad. Again do yall not realize that Beyonce is the only R&B artist to sell what she sells in YEARS? And still yall throw around b******* to make you feel better about somebody else achievements in life. Get a life. Why am I even posting this. Lmao.

  5. adelefan May 2, 2016

    I’m still waiting for my physical copy. Youtube performances until Friday .. ? ugh

  6. gilbert May 2, 2016

    Not to mention she is the only female in history to have her album streamed over 100 million times in less than a week. Congrats Queen B! Haters gonna hate, continue to slay your SOLD OUT world tour. Yes, SOLD OUT. Go on youtube and twitter before u come at me 😀

    • norosy3 May 2, 2016

      The tour not sold out stop spreading lies

  7. HELP May 2, 2016

    GREAT JOB!!! NO OTHER BLACK WOMEN CAN DO THIS … MARIAH TRASH, RIRI TRASH, JANET NOWHERE TO BE FOUND… BRANDY LOL NEVER

    • SMH May 2, 2016

      Lol yeah ok. Mariah and Janet both have outsold her with only one album. Janet’s the only black woman with SEVEN #1 albums. Sit until Beyonce can do that.

      • Alex May 2, 2016

        @smh but Janet’s albums didn’t DEBUT at number one nor were they CONSECUTIVE! As u were!

    • Travon Austin May 2, 2016

      I am sorry. I cant tell if you are ill informed or just dumb. Mariah and Janet both have several albums that each have outsold Destiny’s Child & Beyonces entire careers combined. Please stop dragging Mariah and Janet because I love beyonce. I don’t want to drag her. Kii

      • Travon Austin May 2, 2016

        Mariah and Janet may not have debuted as much as Beyonce but they both have proven,countless times, to stay in the top 10 of the charts for more than 20 weeks. They also are not local artist. Did you know that Mariah has sold 30 million albums in Europe and Japan each.

  8. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy May 2, 2016

    Six consecutive #1 albums is nothing short of major feat that reflects the longevity of her career…even if said longevity is made off of the raw creative genius of unknown kids hustling who probably don’t even have a pot to P*ss in…

  9. Stephon Jackson May 2, 2016

    Slay Bey! I’m in love with this album. The growth with each album is amazing with her (and Rihanna). “Freedom” & “Pray You Catch Me” are my faves right now.

  10. gilbert May 2, 2016

    Please, you can’t compare Adele and Beyonce. Adele’s music is more appealing to the general public, Beyonce’s genre is only for certain people. Not to mention, Adele promoted the s*** out of her album. Beyonce did 0 promotion before her HBO special. To this very day, she never promoted anything live on television or award shows. Lemonade being exlcusive for 2 full days on TIDAL and still doing these numbers in just 3,5 days (YES, NOT A FULL 7 DAYS) is great. Had she released it on iTunes immediately and did it for a full week, she’d be scanning platinum by now. Anyways congrats to everyone’s success. Don’t wanna leave any hateful comments

    • norosy3 May 2, 2016

      Adele did not need streams or drama to sell she release physical albums

  11. coockiness May 2, 2016

    the fact that beyonce used a false cheating drama and HBO special and will be completely eclipsed by drake, how just drop his album just that, drop his f****** album is redic..

    like drake did those numbers pure sales in one day….but beyonce is a legend and queen lmao

  12. RihYonce May 2, 2016

    Congrats Beyoncé you deserve it all ! This album is amazing from top to bottom ! 6 #1s ??

    • norosy3 May 2, 2016

      I’m going to ask you to take rih off your name it’s false advertising calling yourself rihyonce

  13. coockiness May 2, 2016

    did anyone notice the classroom size of people it took to write each song on lemonade….

    and this is supposed to be her most personal album, but you have everyone in the industry writing your songs…

    • Anne May 2, 2016

      Exaggeration to say the least, it’s clearly her most personal album. However many writers she used ( which is not as many as you are suggesting), they came up with a masterpiece.

      • coockiness May 2, 2016

        check the the credits ma.. it took 17 people to write hold up……12 people to write 6 inch…..14 people to write all night….9 people to write freedom….and 10 people to write don’t hurt yourself…beyonce is become more of a vissel for other people’s creativity than an artist…not to mention that all of the poetry in the movie was written by some else

    • BeyKnowlesBest May 2, 2016

      Why is needed me and this is what you came for flopping back up the charts ? While formation, sorry and formation hold tight in the top ten…what yall need to understand is rih n ci is ALWAYS gonna be Beyoncé’s LESSOR!

      • norosy3 May 2, 2016

        You still coming for rih hives it’s sad how the only person yall compare fossil to is rih hang it up your favorite just got whiplash tired ass same old story if rih is such a flop then why compare bey to her what about adele I guess not Taylor drake gaga bey is their lessor sorry b****

  14. gilbert May 2, 2016

    NEED I REMIND U, LEMONADE AND BEYONCE WERE TRENDING TOPICS FOR DAYS AND GENERATED OVER 4 MILLION TWEETS ON TWITTER. 20 YEARS INTO HER CAREER AND THE PUBLIC IS STILL CRAZY OVER THIS WOMAN. IM DONE :’)

    • LOL May 2, 2016

      LOL AND DRAKE STILL SLAYED HER IN 24 HOURS AND ALL HE DID WAS DROP HIS ALBUM LMAO.

      #STRUGGLELIKEBEYONCE

      • RihYonce May 2, 2016

        Drake’s album wasn’t a tidal exclusive dumb ass ?

    • norosy3 May 2, 2016

      All that twitter trend and not a million in a day please the hives need to stop with this another excuse will be the welfare cheques did not come in on time gtfoh

  15. Anne May 2, 2016

    Will be platinum in no time! As usual, Beyoncé will be platinum within the first month or so. She is also doing well on the singles front and this is her highest critically acclaimed thus far. Wonder what she will send to radio, I think Lemonade will have longevity if she chooses to give the singles treatment.

  16. Alison (Minaj;Fenty;Bieber) May 2, 2016

    So…

    The “Queen” only did “485K” pure sales? I thought she was going to do “500K+ to 700K +” in pure sales” according to the HIVE+?

    She did less than B’Day sales and only a little more than I Am Sasha Fierce.

    Slay… I GUESS??????? LMAO.

  17. Alison (Minaj;Fenty;Bieber) May 2, 2016

    485K???????????????

    Not less than bday and I am though! I thought she was gonna do A MILLION?????????

  20. Blue May 2, 2016

    Thats just one record and a fun fact. Was expecting more records. Major record though, still haven’t heard the album, dont wanna be disappointed.

  21. Rihanna’s humble pie May 2, 2016

    “Pure sales”. A foreign concept to the Navy. 😀 as well as pure talent, pure hygiene, and pure anti-basicness #slayage slay queen.

  22. I stan (D) for @#JACKIE May 2, 2016

    kii mess at these numbers huge decline from her last this will never be X2 platinum at least not in sales

  23. B2B May 2, 2016

    Congratulation Queen B! Why are you trolls referencing Drake? Kudos to him but Mr. Carter has 13 # 1 albums, so unless Drake logging 13 #1 albums then BYE. Queen is still the Queen. Tupac never did a million first week and he still slays Drake music. Lupe too.

    • RihYonce May 2, 2016

      Preach it !

  24. Alison (Minaj;Fenty;Bieber) May 2, 2016

    Now the HIVE wanna use SPS when they’ve been DRAGGING Rihanna and Nicki Minaj for slaying in streaming????

    THE HYPOCRISY!!!!!!!!!!

    Beyonce is projected to do less than 200K next week and LESS than 100K SPS!

    THE QUEEN OF FRONT LOADED SALES.

    The only thing keeping her album selling now is her songs on iTunes! LMAO.

  25. whenindoubtthetruthwillout May 2, 2016

    Hold on a minute! Two days ago you reported that Drake’s new album had “sold 630,000 copies in just one day – more than Beyonce has sold in 5 days”.
    So how can Lemonade have “achieved the biggest first week debut of any album in 2016” ? That doesn’t make sense – it’s a complete contradiction!!

    This gossip site just keeps getting worse – now it’s contradicting it’s own posts!!!!

    The word desperation comes to mind!!!!

    • B2B May 2, 2016

      Drake sales are not final yet. As of right now B has the biggest debut of 2016.

  26. coockiness May 2, 2016

    rihanna gave away 1 million copies of her album free and then left on tidal for a whole week….. and the hive still wants to drag her…

    • Anne May 2, 2016

      Everyone knows she gave her album away because the low prerelease industry predictions nearly gave her a heart attack. She knew she would otherwise struggle for quite sometime to go platinum. This way she gets to call her album platinum without waiting for the sales to eventually roll in. According to Wikipedia she is only over the halfway mark and her sales are slowing down so who knows when she’ll have 1 million actual sales .

  27. Career Ender May 2, 2016

    congrats Queen!!!!! others couldn’t do that with a full week and all retail available
    .
    and Formation is #2 on iTunes
    .
    Congrats Queen again!

    • LOL May 2, 2016

      LOL DIDN’T ADELE DO 3 MILLION FIRST WEEK? LMAO

  28. Mezie May 2, 2016

    485,000 and the shameless beyhives are happy? With those hype i thought she will sell more than indestructible Adele…… Drake chased her back to abyss in 24 hours…. This woman is only good at copying, stealing people’s ideas… Sample Sample in all tracks not to mention of countless writers, yet the outcome is worst than everything she did before.

    • Metzo May 2, 2016

      Still better than any of your faves. Funny how you resort to clinging to Drake and Adele to drag Bey now. Lmaooo. They both outsold Bey so what? As long as shes outselling Rihoee, I’m happy. “Formation”, a 3 month old free song is outperforming 3 of Rihanna’s most recent singles (The generic edm, kiss it better and Needed me). ??

      • IStan4Rihanna. May 2, 2016

        The only song that “Formation” is outperforming is “Kiss It Better”, the latter of which is inevitably flopping quite obviously.

        .

        “Needed Me”? No, considering it’s Hot 100 & Streaming positions.
        .
        “This Is What You Came For”? No, if we are to go by its current WW takeover.

  29. Metzo May 2, 2016

    Sip on this lemonade tho.

    Itunes Update:

    #1 WW Artist: Beyonce
    Lemonade: #2 U.S itunes. #1 in 40 countries (Views is #1 in 52 countries)
    Formation is back to #2 on Itunes. Knocking down Calvis and Rih( who are declining)

    And best of all, Beyonce has 4 songs in the top 10 itunes U.S.


    Deake is already slowing down.
    Let us see what those WW sales and seond week U.S sale look like. BEY is WINNING.

    • RihYonce May 2, 2016

      Preach it ! Beyoncé always has the last laugh it won’t be long before views tumble down the charts & bey goes back to number 1

  30. Career Ender May 2, 2016

    I still don’t use streams congrats 485k , physical copies coming Friday
    .
    You’ll be fine, you always sell

  31. Dem Lessers May 2, 2016

    I’m just waiting to see if she can top the Hot 100 again, everyone can get a number 1 album. It’s coming up a decade since she last did it, no shade tho.

    • surprise..dec.2013 May 2, 2016

      I truly do ‘t think she cares about NO 1 singles. If she released Formation an all platforms and not Tidal alone..before the Superbowl, she prob would have debuted at no 1. I mean look at h** formation is charting now, three months after its release. It is charting higher than ‘THIS GENERIC MESS IS WHAT YOU CAME FOR’???????

      • RihYonce May 2, 2016

        “Sorry” can easily be a #1 it’s slaying radio right now & it’s still rising. If she puts in on all platforms she could easily go number 1. But she’s not going to do that because she hates single success she’s more focused on the album as a whole . I hate that though

  32. surprise..dec.2013 May 2, 2016

    The NAZI are upset as usual!!!??????

  33. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy May 2, 2016

    It’s crazy to me how quick the HIVe can jump up and down in enamor over statistics even if she didn’t even halfway create a damn thing. It’s one thing to be inspired by art and use that in your performance, but this woman straight up stole this and repackaged it with her long, blonde mane. I’m so disappointed in her.

    • surprise..dec.2013 May 2, 2016

      She stole nothing sis…a lot of the credits are samples. Calm down and stop finding anything to discredit this woman.Congratulate and move on!!!!!

      I see that Beyonce outselling your TALENTLESS fav in 4 days, has got you seething. Go smoke one of those blunts you’re always talking about. Pathetic ass pot head.

  34. cocobutta May 2, 2016

    Good job.
    Nice to have one of todays great entertainers have rewards and accolades for their product.

    No matter the drag can’t take away the achievement.

    Lemonade is a hot versatile album.

  35. Alison (Minaj;Fenty;Bieber) May 2, 2016

    SCREAMING at the HIVE+ saying drakes sales are slowing down when the THIEF is projected to do less than 125K pure sales next week and a little over 200K with SPS!

  36. Mezie May 2, 2016

    She couldn’t even sell beyond Taylor Swift 1989… Its a pity…

  37. Mezie May 2, 2016

    Until she get number one single on Hot 100, she will remain irrelevant.

  38. nico May 2, 2016

    Congratulations this is the beginning

  39. Julien May 2, 2016

    Adele: Try again sis! 2 million in one week. 8 million in 6 weeks. Let me go sip my lemonade.

    Drake: My 6th album is about to be #1 too. So much for having that record by yourself.

  40. Mimi May 2, 2016

    Congratulations Queen Bey! Now, why are fans of lessors in this post talking smack and raising their blood pressure, how pathetic. Also, if you have something to say, say it under your one and only account, stop creating multiple names to talk s***. You’re basically saying you’re a b**** ass weak ass coward. Furthermore, the fact that you b****’s are using Drake and Adele to come for Bey, and not using your own fav, speakers volumes.

  41. Mezie May 2, 2016

    Drake crumbled her in one day, she fell off the cliff with her C**t wide opened. The hype couldn’t give her a million first week sales. Her empty headed BeyHIves can’t face the embarrassment, its a pity.

    • Mimi May 2, 2016

      Oh girl/Cinnamon, you’re giving perfect strangers a glimpse into how pathetic your is life. I genuinely feel sorry for you.

  42. Mezie May 2, 2016

    I bet the thiefyonce won’t sell up to 100,000 copies before tracking week ends… No body want to hear her garbage anymore.

    • RihYonce May 2, 2016

      ??? nobody wants to hear her but she’s was tweeted about over 4 million times , trending for a whole week , have over 100 million streams in less than a week & has multiple songs in the top 10 on iTunes & still is the #1 artist on iTunes WW ? Try again boo. You’ll never win when it comes to shading the queen

  43. Cinnamon Girl May 2, 2016

    But Drake will have the biggest selling debut in 2016 next week! Sorry, Bey! Teehee

      Ok but will he have 13 #1 albums like Jay-Z ? Oh I’ll wait lets see if Drake is still going #1 20 years into his career like Beyoncé & Jay-Z.

  44. LOL May 2, 2016

    LOL FIRST THE BUGS SAID A MILLION. THEN IT WAS 600K. AND YET THE STRUGGLE BYTCH COULDN’T EVEN MATCH THE FLOPPED NUMBERS OF HER HBO SPECIAL. MESS LMAO.

    KEEP CLINGING TO RIHANNA BUGS. MEANWHILE DRAKE AND ADELE ARE LAUGHING THEIR ASSES OFF AT THESE SAD NUMBER THAT THEY SURPASSED IN ONLY A FEW HOURS LMAO.

  45. SMH May 2, 2016

    Damn, she couldn’t even get 787k in sales after all that hype lol.

    • RihYonce May 2, 2016

      Her album was on tidal for over 36 hours you idiot.

    • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) May 2, 2016

      Your fave frihleased three flop singles and couldn’t even cross the 200K mark. That’s what you’d call hype. Staaaawwwppp it lmao

  46. Pat May 2, 2016

    I told people only beyhive was interested n this album n her pure numbers show that…but congrats on 6th number one. Only janet has more

    • RihYonce May 2, 2016

      Janet’s first 6 albums didn’t go number one you idiot Beyoncé is the only one holding this record

      • Pat May 2, 2016

  47. Annalise? May 2, 2016

    She murdered everybodyand I was her witness! ???????

    WINNING. Bey has made SHORT WORK (no pun) in being on top of the Pack (including Drake & Adele) this year. Album full 7 day week total matched self titled with 800k sold, worldwide figures yet to be released. I predict consistant sells but i still doubt she gets a big hit this era i sense no hits on this album BUT… $509 > $17.99 > $1.29. It will return to #1 week 3 or wk 4.
    #460

    Formation: “Rihanna Flopping with that Anti-Christ mess. Id add extra Lemons to it just to make it FRESH. Im so wreckless when i summon the Beyhive Nest. But thats the only way to put that Navy Trash to Rest”.

    • Cinnamon Girl May 2, 2016

      How come you couldn’t predict that Drake would demolish Beyawnce? You should’ve warned your queen!

      • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) May 2, 2016

        How come you clinging to Drake when you Stan for HeHe?
        Drake slays that young man

  49. TheBeysusImpact May 2, 2016

    SLAYYYY!!! ???????????

  50. DIABETIC STROKE May 2, 2016

    Its total in the UK is also high 100k sold so far & also #1 in Australia with around 50k. Anti remains a EPIC floo at both locations. Bey beat Anti christ with a $18 dollar album in less than 4 days vs 3 months(+#1 single during that entire duration almost)

  51. DIABETIC STROKE May 2, 2016

    @SINnaMAN

    DOES Drakes Views cost $18 was it displayed for free on HBO for 2 nights and Facebook/youtube? Does it have 20 songs on it? Has it had a hit single? Has it had a release date prior? Is her FULL WEEK being calculated? Did she release on FRIDAY?…. you know the Day she herself invented? Drake has Bey Self titled the Queen herself to thank for theze #s Adele as well. Beys oppurtunity to sell 1 mill first week has never been utilized. Bey only cares about going #1 not sales so much so but still out debut ANY female of past decades incluing Janet Whitney Madonna & Mariah.

  52. Annalise? May 2, 2016

  53. DIABETIC STROKE May 2, 2016

    Also idk the point of coming for beys presales when thats just 4 day sells. Its full week total is arround 600k. It will be platinum by the 15th of may and reach 1 mill pure sales by june. I predict 1.8 mill US 3.2 mill ww. Less for drake whom is the most front loaded artist out there. Bey will make more money off this album than drake anyway so the drag is useless. Beys male counterparts also out debuted her in 2013 she still ended up outselling them, all except Justin Timberlake whom is White.

  54. Mark May 2, 2016

    SLAY!

  55. King B May 2, 2016

    Remember when 21 debuted with lower sales than Born This Way? Remember when IASF debuted with lower sales than Circus? Remember when The Fame debuted with less than 100k? How bout when BEYONCÉ debuted lower than Eminem, Drake and JT? Y’all know who is still on BB200 right?

  56. King B May 2, 2016

    Congrats Bey! I see everyone join forces to tear you down!

    • fatusankoh May 2, 2016

  59. DIABETIC STROKE May 2, 2016

    SELF TITLED remains the highest selling BLACK album since the year it was released in with 4-5 mill sold. LEMONADE track equavalent And Strsaming sells do count. And factoring in Both for LEMONADE & ANTI, Guess who comes on Top(?)

  60. Nobo May 2, 2016

    The difference with Beyonce and the girls (Taylor and Adele aside) she’s a steady seller in her 1st 2nd 3rd month; not weeks. We will see pure sales platinum plaques.

    I don’t do direct artist comparisons. Beyonce’s resume, viewable to the public, is its own debator. If Beyonce would like to place me on payroll, I’ll gladly Lynch the 3 multi-account users in the name of a paycheck. But, she’s good until she cuts me a piece of that 9 million dollar pay day.

  61. Alex May 2, 2016

    Formation has debuted at #10 on the hot 100!!!!!!!!! 16th top ten for the Queen after it was free for almost 3 months???? SLAYYYYY!!!!! ??????

  62. Anne May 2, 2016

    Many sources say Beyoncé is sending EVERY song on Lemonade to the radio ALL AT ONCE!

    • Anne May 2, 2016

      Oops, I think that’s just a rumor.

  63. zeroing ivy bloper tran anti girl lemond time May 2, 2016
