Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ Hits Platinum / All 6 Solo Albums Now Certified

Published: Wednesday 8th Jun 2016 by Sam

Beyonce‘s BeyHive will no doubt be buzzing with jubilation today.

The singer’s sixth studio album ‘Lemonade’ hit the 1 million mark in pure (US) sales earlier this week – making it eligible for a Platinum plaque.

However, the formalising process is one that has to be actioned by an artist’s label and granted by the Recording Industry Association of America – more commonly known as the RIAA.

This morning brought with it the confirmation of what was essentially a guarantee.

Details below…

Taking to Twitter, the RIAA announced:

Interestingly, the feat wasn’t celebrated until the project hit Platinum in pure sales. A fact we doubt was coincidental.

In recent times, streaming has seen projects that haven’t even scanned 400k in sales being certified Platinum (and then double Platinum) based on free plays. And while Bey long hit 1 million equivalent units when factoring in streams (a total which now sits at 1.5 million), there’s something qualitatively pleasing about her doing things the traditional way.

Times may be a changing, but there’s one thing that remains untouched – and that’s Beyonce’s reign atop of the Pop pack. #NoPurchasedPlaques.

    LOL….SHADY AS HELL, SHE WAITED TO ACTUALLY SELL I MILLION IN PURE SALES TO GET CERTIFIED, UNLIKE A CERTAIN PERSON.

    FORMATION TOUR: 97 MILLION FORM 18 DATES..SHE IS WINNING!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Lamb4life June 8, 2016

      I hope all of them… 120 producers will get paid 😭😭😭

      • Music Fan June 8, 2016

        Anti will b certified… MEDIOCRE!!!

        🤐

      • coockiness June 8, 2016

        Lol and the 500 song writers for her most personal album….

      • HALF AMAZIN June 8, 2016

        And they gonna cling to double plat if streaming gets it there. Such fickle flip floppers. Not the entire hive but the ones who live for daily TGJ Stan wars. There’s nowhere else to get it but tidal, which is…well….coupled by her “cloak of mystery” anti-marketing but it’s really marketing you damn right it better SELL.

    • Anti Is $hit June 8, 2016

      he promotional campaign for ANTI was long, clunky, and apparently, very expensive. Jay Z inked a $25 million deal with Samsung. Within that deal was the alleged promise that one million copies of ANTI would be purchased by Samsung and given away to fans for free, ensuring ANTI’s RIAA platinum status. (This discounts the Billboard/Nielsen charts because giveaway statistics are disqualified from the running. Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz had a similar fate.) Tidal’s stats are all over the place with no definitive answer as to what’s being counted as a sale or not. It’s messy…

    • Anne June 8, 2016

      Just goes to show that people are still willing to PAY for her albums in large numbers while many of her peers can no longer say the same.

      • Anne June 8, 2016

    • wrosy3 June 8, 2016

      It’s been reported on tmz someone suing crooked Beyonce again does she ever think of anything herself or bey just steals from people it’s beyond pathetic at this point all her music career someone sues her for taking their idea

      • Realtalk June 22, 2016

        That so called film guy really need to go back and check out previous work from her albums before “lemonade” and people would say he got all his ideas from Beyoncé, just a few songs mine dej Ja va blow superpowers just to name a few. So I believe he got her ideas first

      • Molly June 8, 2016

        @keri kiii you better drag that bum… Beyonce needs gimmicks to sell records

      • Keri Qween June 8, 2016

        Molly the h/I/v is so pressed that Gimmickonce can’t sell an album wwithout a gimmick

        The porno album she had to be vulgar and naked. This album she used her marriage and race baiting (Formation) to sale.

  11. MsYonce June 8, 2016

    If your fav haven’t sold actually sold a million copies you shouldn’t be in this post shading anyone ☕️

    • Fesh Navi June 8, 2016

      Well since Rihanna has sold platinum 6 times before….

      One of which is double plat in sales Loud is almost double plat as well…

      My fave has SEVERAL PLATINUM CERTIFICATIONS.

      but anyways keep trying to shade, its as tired as Beyonce is as tired of free falling down the Hot 100.

  12. Walker June 8, 2016

    Unlike Rihanna, Beyonce actually SOLD a million to actual music buyers, which means her certification isn’t bogus…like Rihanna’s is.

    • Fesh Navi June 8, 2016

      Rihanna has sold platinum 6 times CUUNT.
      lol

      and Anti doesnt need to sell a million, Rihanna is a legacy artist, she can do what the f*** she wants. Selling Records doesnt matter anymore

      see Madonna, Mariah Carey. Fossil is also a legacy artist.

      And if anything Beyonce has shown us that even when we FLOP *coughs 4*, we can still rise and get back on top.

      Anti has been top ten since its release in february and its now June only leaving the top 5, twice thus far. Be mad be prressed.

    • wrosy3 June 8, 2016

      It’s been reported on tmz someone suing crooked Beyonce again does she ever think of anything herself or bey just steals from people it’s beyond pathetic at this point all her music career someone sues her for taking their idea

  13. Suicide Blonde June 8, 2016

    Her album sales are decent, nothing impressive. Anyway, of course it should go platinum, otherwise it would be alarming to flop with your #6 album.

    • Molly June 8, 2016

      Beys discography is very mediocre.

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) June 8, 2016

        CI-MAN IS JUST MEDIOCRE AND NOT EVEN INCLUDING HER DISCOGRAPHY IN THAT STATEMENT.

      • Molly June 8, 2016

        But everyone knows Ciara has a better catalog than Bey.

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) June 8, 2016

        The only people that think that are the the people that bought JAKCED……..AND YOU HOW THAT WENT DOWN, ONLY CI-MAN’S FAMILY MEMBERS BOUGHT THE ALBUM AND MAYBE INCLUDING FUTURE’S OTHER 10 BABY MAMAS OUT OF RESPECT FOR BABY MAMA ASSOCIATION. THUS, NOBODY THINKS THAT..LMAO

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) June 8, 2016

      WHEN DO U THINK YOU AND YOUR OTHER KLAN MEMBERS PUBLICLY SUPPORT TRUMP?? AND IS IT TAKING SO LONG…..

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) June 8, 2016

      I’m sure you won’t..but my question was that u being the secretary of the KLAN, WHEN IS UR FAMILY GOING TO PUBLICLY SUPPORT TRUMP AGAINST CLINTON????

      • Suicide Blonde June 8, 2016

        I won’t play your game, find another to play with.

      • Ciara’s Toes, and Russell’s OhMiBod stimulator June 8, 2016

      We all know ur favourite game is the LYNCH A NEGRO’ game..WICH I’M SURE U ARE EXCELLENT AT.

    • Royalkev June 8, 2016

      “of course it should go platinum, otherwise it would be alarming to flop with your #6 album”.

      Interesting … I guess it was rather odd for ‘ole Madonna to only score a platinum plaque on her 5th offering (‘Erotica’)… in 1992! I mean, did any diva sell that low with a studio album in the 90s? … Janet, Whitney, Mariah, Brandy, Toni, Sade, Mary, TLC and Mary sure didn’t!

      • Suicide Blonde June 9, 2016

        Did any of those divas released an album like Erotica at the time?…….Not to mention the fact that before that album she released The Immaculate Collection, which sold 30 million copies worldwide. Are u really coming for Madonna in the name of Beyoncé 😂😂😂…..Beyoncé and all of those divas you mentioned above are beneath her, that’s a fact, greatest woman in music, deal with it, that woman has etched her name in history like no other.

      • Royalkev June 9, 2016

        “Not to mention the fact that before that album she released The Immaculate Collection, which sold 30 million copies worldwide”.

        … annnnndddd. Your point? Several of these women had huge peaks and didn’t match it, but none of them only failed to sell a measly million records during those times. Erotica happened before Madonna finished paving the way for “the gimmicky artist”.

        “Beyoncé and all of those divas you mentioned above are beneath her”

        … their talent sure isn’t!

        “greatest woman in music”

        Who are we referring to? Streisand? Ross? Carole King? Joni Mitchell? Roberta Flack? … Oh, you’re defining Madonna? … the mother of smoke and mirrors, inflation and privilege over talent!

  14. Keon June 8, 2016

    This is amazing I’m happy for beyonce. Now i need her to revamp this formation tour. I need
    1.get me bodied
    2 freakum dress
    3 suga mama
    4 best thing I never had
    Like this formation set list makes me mad. However, don’t get it twisted i will be seeing her.
    #beyhive

    • MsYonce June 8, 2016

      Nopee Freakum Dress and Get Me bodied can stay off the set list. I want her to add Jealous and Best Thing I Never Had. I’m seeing her again tonight in NYC

  15. Oh Well June 8, 2016

    Navy is pretending Anti is a hot cake..the fact is…Anti is just a leftovers sandwich. 😢😢😢😢

    • Mr.StLaurent June 8, 2016

      You just kill me 😂😂😂😂😂😂

  16. Reality Check June 8, 2016

    Platinum after SIX to SEVEN weeks and she’s the Queen of pure sales? Is this a joke? Even after the Hive said she was going to sell a Million the first week like Drake. Interesting.

    But what’s ironic is with every Beyonce’ accomplishment noted, Rihanna is shaded.

    Ok, but Why not compare Bey with Taylor and Adele since they are more on her level. ,hmmm… you won’t because it’ll really SHOW how mediocre these sales are. I would be embarrassed to be a beyhive right now.

    Rihanna stays in her lane, OWNS HER MASTERS and does her own thing. Let her LIVE!

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) June 8, 2016

      Whatever helps you sleep at night sis!!!!!!!

    • Molly June 8, 2016

      All this true TEA #EyeAmLiving hehe

    • Keri Qween June 8, 2016

      Yasss reality check coming out the blue to drag kiiiii

      They can’t congratulate their fave without worrying about Rihanna who they claim is so inferior. Theyre scared to mention the REAL album sellers where Gimmickonce cant compare.Obviously threatened because even after giving away 1 million copies she still has sold 450k and a million worldwide.

    • © Centurion ::. June 8, 2016

      Drag those no-life-having-āss-høe-hive fruity bottoms!!!

    • Jamon June 8, 2016

      Well said. Bey and Rihanna are not the only female artist. Adele and Taylor’s sells are through the roof and consistent. They sell over a million in one week. Nothing against Beyonce and Rihanna, but there shouldn’t be a post on sales until they reach Mariah, Madonna, Celine, Adele, Whitney, Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, Shania Twain numbers. Congratulations on another platinum album, but, that’s nothing ground breaking or something to write an article about.

  17. Coolness June 8, 2016

    This article is shady but yes, this new mode of certifying albums Platinum that haven’t even sold 500k copies is a joke. With that being said, congrats to Beyoncé. She, Justin Timberlake and P!nk’s longevity is commendable.

  18. B. Hill June 8, 2016

    Wait a minute, ANTI hasn’t even sold gold yet and has been out since like January? Bwhahahahahaha. Too funny. 5headanna is talentless flop s***.

    • Reality Check June 8, 2016

      Anti is platinum WORLDWIDE with a million in pure sales. However, in the US Anti is on track to go Gold in two weeks. IMO that’s great even after the album was given away for free and leaked.

      iconic. Legend.

  19. Molly June 8, 2016

    Didn’t drake go platinum within two weeks? Lets not forget anti was certified platinum after one day of release hehe #NavyWins

    • MsYonce June 8, 2016

      Shut up Maid! I guess you don’t understand it said Pure Sales! Anti isnt even Gold! When will you stop pretending to be a Rihanna fan and stand behind your real fave CIARA??

    • coupe June 8, 2016

      Look the RIAA is US only..they added streaming to their certifications…anti sold 1 million to samsung….1 million emails were used and downloaded the album…anti is 2x platinum… There is no she hasn’t went gold that’s not how it works…outs 2x platimum… deal with it. Rihanna is not the only one to benefit from streaming. ..streaming has paid users and ads. .money is being generated

  21. Absolved June 8, 2016

    So in a month, Beyonce has sold more than 2x what Rihanna has in six? Hmmm…

  22. SWISH June 8, 2016

    still don’t understand why y’all care about numbers so much when none of them benefit y’all in anyway

    • B. Hill June 8, 2016

      I actually don’t care about numbers in general. For any other artist, I wouldn’t care one way or another. But I love picking at 5headanna’s idiot stans. So if I can use her poor numbers to throw darts at those clowns, then so be it! 🙂 CANTI flopped. What kind of pop star can’t sell 500k in half a year? Bwhahahahaha!

      • Fesh Navi June 8, 2016

        Drop those numbers. Taylor cant be mentioned in a Beyonce post but Rihanna has to be? Girl bye!

  33. © Centurion ::. June 8, 2016

    The worst album of 2016. No wonder it cannot produce a hit record. She was too focused with having her name in the credits instead of producing a decent album. Beyonce’s discography is very mediocre indeed.

    • MsYonceand June 8, 2016

      If we cared about Rihanna she would have a much more successful tour.We would donate to the BeyGood cause but too bad it doesn’t cover vocal lessons

    DEATH @Keri,

    Queen roach had to publicly shame her husband to sell this construction noise filled floppy disc, from stripper to gargoyle.

    I cannot believe Jay Z allowed himself be emasculated like that LOL

    Celebrating a Platinum certification as if it were a Diamond one… LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL. Can’t ”the reigning queen” do better?

  50. Jesus June 8, 2016

    It’s sad that the Navy are celebrating a tour that’s 90% sold despite being the hottest pop star today. But hey this era has thought them to not be over ambitious

    • Beykim loves Lady Gaga,Beyoncé,Justin Bieber,One Direction & Miley, June 8, 2016

      It is indeed sad.None of my fav except Gaga are struggling that hard.Flopping on tour,where they do that at?

      • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

        Love Rihanna just flopped harder with this album than any Lady Gaga release. And that´s saying a lot after all the backlash Gaga faced for being one of those faces who are the perfect next thing to tear down (like a BvS situation in film industry) Thankfully Gaga has talent to back her up and she´s been doing great and being recognized everywhere these last two years. What will Rihanna do when her lucky run in singles charts ends? 🙂 Rihanna doesn´t have talent and she doesn´t have a loyal fanbase as a result, proof is her most selling album has never sold more than teh worst selling album by Gaga first week. That´s very important in teh long run. Rihanna only achieves some decent numbers after months of one radio-friendly single after the other.This go round not even that.

      • Jesus June 8, 2016

        Gaga may have had a “flop” era but she still managed to sell out some of her tour dates and come out with a respectable overall gross.
        The fact that this girl had a #1 hit but can’t even fill up a 15K arena in her prime just shows that there is something wrong.

      • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

        Jesus
        Exactly. If Gaga or Beyonce or any artist with some more talent were having a long running #1 they would be selling some huge numbers in album units. Hell mariah Carey would do it now at almost 50 years old with a hit on singles charts. Problem is nobody takes Rihanna seriously, so thsoe quick hits don´t mean anything and son´t translate into real success.

  51. LB June 8, 2016

    Still wondering why the legend and album seller isn’t doing Taylor Swift or Adele numbers, some queen…queen of smoke and mirrors.

  52. Jesus June 8, 2016

    If Ariana can sell out all her dates then why can’t Rihanna?

    • Grande the Way June 8, 2016

      Well Ari had a lot more steam going into the tour. Anti had a messy roll out.

  53. Jesus June 8, 2016

    She may not be doing Adele or Taylor swift numbers but she is BREAKING and CREATING RECORDS

  60. DIABETIC STROKE June 8, 2016

    Is this feat (1.5 mill) just SPS or does it also include TEA track equ sales cuz im assuming individual tracks had to have crossed 2 mill in the US by now which would indicate 100-200k more albums. I still dont know how sales plus streaming works but 1.5 mill in 1 month is impressive in this climate. Bey next albim could be HUGE and debut way above 1 mill US if it was just a regular album promoted and proceded by a hit 1st single. My vision for B7 would be some live funk RB Pop album with only 8 or 9 tracks. It would atleast sell more than 460k first week… (see anti begining and final US pure sales total, start with 460 and multiply by 1,000 5 months later)

    • Memo June 8, 2016

      Your fukking incoherent dissertation!!! She’s ”the album seller,” so, this is mediocre for ”an album force” like her. Why ”could” the next album be huge? Why not this one? The excuses are real. Suggesting a music direction and predicting sales is DELUSIONAL!!!

  61. dingaz June 8, 2016

    the same ppl tht certified rihanna #Anti album x2 platinum is the same one that certified beyonce #lemonade platinum so it safe to say rihanna certification are accurate

    • Mr.StLaurent June 8, 2016

      Yes.
      But as you can see, There are two way to have certification.
      With and without stream.
      Beyoncé choose the all fashion way. 👑🐝

        So what her debut album sold over 11 million WW & 5x Platinum in the US fwm

  63. LB June 8, 2016

    So wait, the queen and album seller still cannot sell what Taylor Swift has been able to sell in the first week, 3 albums in a row? What is she the queen of exactly?

    • King Mark111 /.\ June 8, 2016

  64. LEVELS June 8, 2016

    Platinum after SIX to SEVEN weeks and she’s the Queen of pure sales? Is this a joke? Even after the Hive said she was going to sell a Million the first week like Drake. Interesting.
    But what’s ironic is with every Beyonce’ accomplishment noted, Rihanna is shaded.
    Ok, but Why not compare Bey with Taylor and Adele since they are more on her level. ,hmmm… you won’t because it’ll really SHOW how mediocre these sales are. I would be embarrassed to be a beyhive right now.
    Rihanna stays in her lane, OWNS HER MASTERS and does her own thing. Let her LIVE!

    DRAAAAAAAAAAG. SPILL THAT FUCKKKKING TEAAAAAA!

  65. JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

    Are Rihanna stans seriously retarded or what the hell is the orblem once and for all? How the hell can they come for Beyonce when they stan for Rihanna???? LMAO Beyonce sold in a week what Rihanna sold in months. END OF STORY! Just focus on why Rihanna cannot stop releasing generic singles or her career is over otherwise (see what happened last year with her cancelled album for more proof).
    I don´t f****** care about Beypnce´s music but truth is she is one of the very few who does very good sales wise in this pathetic climate. Why the hell do Rihanna stans use Adele to justify Beyonce not being the very top seller??? LMAO Where is the logic? Focus on why Rihanna is nothing without streaming and why she is considered a joke. Focus on that and grow up once and for all. Rihanna has NEVER sold well for what she was supposed to, and this time she just FLOPPED hard. There´s no more to it.
    Talent is the important thing anyway, does she have any??? 🙂 🙂 🙂 She the biggest joke next to Cyrus, and the biggest since britney Spears, although at least taht one could dance.

    • Keri Qween June 8, 2016

      But you had no problem when Gaga was releasing generic EDM tracks Grandpa during her short lived career.

      • JOHNVIDAL June 9, 2016

        Because Gaga HAS TALENT to back it back. Don´t know how many times it is needed to be said. I know Rihanna fans don´t like to read but damn it! LOL Anyway, any Gaga album is better than any Rihanna album, if only for the vocals and for the fact she actually was involved. Last but not least, the most geenric and basic Gaga album was the Fame, and I didn´t even use her at that point. My thing is talent. Don´t know why some people get so upset. Why doesn´t Rihanna try once and for all she can deliver talent? Why doesn´t she relase a different porject? a pure Jazz album? a Musical? get serious recognition at important stages? Oh wait Rihanna cannot do it cause she has zero talent. Bye.

    • Memo June 8, 2016

      Beyoncé is a megastar and yet she doesn’t sell well… then?

      At the rate that sugar water is selling bey might as well buy a plaque, since she’s an album seller and all she should be doing Taylor and Adele numbers.

      Not doing Taylor and Adele’s first week in 6-7.

      Poor dat, my fave isnt a album seller as the hive points out ever so often. She sells singles and you know she currently has two in the top 10 as wee speak.

      The HIVE is mad that lemonade is a flop and lets be honest NO ONE will be singing songs off lemonade in a year, there are no hits from the album.

      There are no memorable songs, even when we aren’t talking about hit singles all the tracks are pretty bland.

      • Briano June 8, 2016

    But where are the lies Samantha? Not even The Pinkprint flopped as hard as CAnti! You know there’s something wrong when you’re being outsold by a rapper who has zero number 1s. fRih is such a flop ass bitxh, Getting outsold by a damn album that’s been out for a month? She needs to sit in the background with flops like Ciara, Keri Draggedson, Kelly Rowland etc

    • Fesh Navi June 8, 2016

      @Barb

      Anti is Rihanna’s only album since her debut to not sell a million.

      She has 6 albums which have sold a million.

      Nicki has how many platinum albums, oh thats right 1/3?

      Is the s*** print still struggling to sell plat even after 231723283y7 singles?

      THE QUEEN OF RAP! SLAY ONIKA SLAY.

      Nicki’s numbers to Rih’s is what meek is to Drake. GET IT THE FACK TOGETHER H**.

      • Mr.StLaurent June 8, 2016

        Nicki own 3 multi Platinium album 😎

    • Grande the Way June 8, 2016

      Anti outsold it worldwide and will probably outsell Roman Reloaded. Plus the entire LOUD era outperformed Nicki’s career. In terms of #1s, single sales, album sales, tours, and awards (she won a Grammy).

      • Keri Qween June 8, 2016

        But the Struggle Print stalled at 900k worldwide. Anti at least made the million dollar mark in pure sales

      • Keri Qween June 8, 2016

        *million copies

        Plastic Minajs last two albums have failed to sell a million copies. Have several ugly

  70. Grande the Way June 8, 2016

    Congratsto Beyonce! Her album is doing well and the tour is averaging like 3 million a show. But why drag Rihanna? She just got another #1 and made history. Her tour is doing almost a million a show. Her album is selling consistently despite the messiest roll out of a major release since Whitney’s comeback album. Despite the odds, Rih is still doing well. She may not being doing as great as Beyonce but who cares? Both are doing great.

    • Fesh Navi June 8, 2016

      They drag Rihanna because Rihanna makes history with everything she does. Even if Anti did a million first week, sam would still read her and say that Roc Nation bought copies.

      Rihanna’s Tour could gross 500 million, his response would still be, Roc nation comes through, they created enough smoke and mirrors to make the talentless model with a mic do big touring numbers. Sigh.

      • Grande the Way June 8, 2016

        Rih isn’t the best singer but she has proven countless times that she can sing. Honestly I think its a tone preference thats more of the issue. IDK how Anti is a flop when its week to week sales are consistent 15 weeks in and it made history with another #1 that spent 9 weeks at number one. Plus Anti’s roll out was just messy

    • BEY>RIH June 8, 2016

Either congratulate or ignore . Bey stays on your minds but continue to hate because she will continue to prosper & yall will forever Stan for talentless flops with your broke asses

  80. mariah June 8, 2016

    beyonce has many writers because she used samples on most of them. when you sample anything you must add the writers in the credits. which is why there are so many names. I’m mad I even explained that but I was tired of seeing the same silly comments
