Girl Power! Solange & Beyonce Make Billboard History

Published: Sunday 9th Oct 2016 by Rashad

Making Billboard history is certainly no new feat to burgeoning pop icon Beyonce.  The Grammy-winning singer, who currently reigns as the only artist in history to see her first 6 albums debut at #1 on the Billboard 200, has certainly seen her name listed beside many-a-history making measure.

Now, as little sister Solange celebrates her first chart-topping entry – ‘Seat at the Table’ (read more on that here) – the superstar siblings are now jointly seeing their monikers beside a unique achievement.

Keen to know what it is?  We thought so:


Billboard reports Solange and Beyonce are the first sisters in music history to both score a #1 album in the same calendar year (with their ‘Table’ and ‘Lemonade’ albums respectively).

Previous reports incorrectly asserted the Knowles duo are the first siblings to ever accomplish this feat, but this was actually first accomplished in 2001 when pop icons Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson topped the charts with their ‘Invincible’ and ‘All For You’ albums respectively.

        Remind us again,
        how many #1 hit albums does fRIH have again out of her EIGHT albums?
        ??????

      • Kris October 9, 2016

        I’ll remind you again #9 ‘memorable hits. That continue to receive airplay and club play. Beyonce’s music is a cornerstone for parties, bbqs, clubs and other social events. You constantly hear Beyoncé wherever you go… Rihanna on the other hand…. her hits doesn’t go past the radio. Beyoncé music is an essential part of culture. Yes, even her songs that never occupied the top 20. When will Rihanna have that impact? You can’t play Umbrella, Rude Boy, We Found Love etc because it has a shelf life… but I guarantee you will always hear Single Ladies, Crazy In Love, Love On Top, Get Me Bodied, Irreppacable, Ego in almost every setting… because that is what you call impact. ‘of the aforementioned songs only two of them hit #1 yet they’re continuously played because guess what… it stands the test of time. Again who needs #1s when you have impact?

    • JOHNVIDAL October 9, 2016

      Gaga does country….wtf. Yes, it will flop harder than ARTFLOP!

    • Molly October 9, 2016

      Mariah could never in this era…

      • Yoncé The Great October 9, 2016

        Mariah has done so in more eras than your fave.

    • LOL October 9, 2016

      LMAO STAY PRESSED BUG, JOANNE WILL STILL SELL MORE THAN A SQUAT ON THE TOILET’S FLOP NUMBERS LMAO

    • ? October 9, 2016

      She needs to push back Johnny asap

    • ? October 10, 2016

      Solo beat Kelly Flopland

    • ? October 10, 2016

      Solo be_at Kelandria at getting a number 1 album wow

  2. Kris October 9, 2016

    That’s awesome! They’re able to share success in their own space!

  3. FASHION_ICON ~ Anti&Lemonade October 9, 2016

    Lol what an achievement …. so stupid

    • HailLegendBeysus October 9, 2016

      Honestly i don’t find anything stupid about this. It’s actually quite cool. The only other siblings to do this was MJ and Janet. To have your talent acknowledge and make it to #1 in the biggest music market in the world is an achievement enough! This is nice and cool. Can you imagine the excitement and feeling of haing both your children top the BB200. Or having your sibling share some major success in the same field of work. Congrats are in order for both these woman. They went from playing in playgrounds together to topping the BB200. That is a tear jerker bro lol!

      • FASHION_ICON ~ Anti&Lemonade October 9, 2016

        Yeah it’s cool and all but actually it’s kind of a fun or nice fact but not an actual achievement… just because they are sisters…
        They have good albums out, both topped the chart…but just because they are sisters it’s an achievement and we have to celebrate this it’s kind of stupid imo

      • HailLegendBeysus October 9, 2016

        @Anne yea i figured that already. Always bringing down Bey but uplifting Whóréanna lol! The Slavi is a mess trying to go undercover ?

      • Um. October 9, 2016

        “Just because they’re sisters it’s an achievement…” Um, duh. What are the odds that any individual artist will get a number 1 album? (Side note: Rihanna has been successful 25% of the time. 12.5% if we wanna talk about albums debuting at number 1, but I’m schleep). Now, what are the odds that two siblings will both achieve the same thing? If it was so likely, it’d happen more often. Hate somewhere else where you can be more easily ignored. Thank you.

    • Yes October 9, 2016

      @FASHION_ICON ~ Anti&Lemonade, stfu! Now please take Lemonade out of your name, because it’s clear you’re a undercover hating @ss cu#t.

      • Anna October 9, 2016

        I was literally about to say the same thing. It’s clearly JUST a nazi attempting to not get dragged by having Lemonade in it’s name. Scalp it hunny!

      • FASHION_ICON ~ Anti&Lemonade October 9, 2016

        You need to get a life for real… i put whatever i like in my name.. and i am a fan of beyoncé i don’t have to prove your ass anything.
        I can also say what the f*** i want …its not because i am a fan i have to kiss Beyoncé and Rihanna asses. Giving my opinion and like them it’s two different things for me if you can’t do this i can’t relate.
        Now ignore me
        Bye

      • Yes October 9, 2016

        You’re ignored. Bye bi#ch!

      • Anna October 9, 2016

        Here’s my ASS to kiss cuz I literally give ZERO f**** about you. I normally skip past your dry ashy comments but I thought i’d acknowledge your existence for once. Be grateful and be mindful HŒ!

      • FASHION_ICON ~ Anti&Lemonade October 9, 2016

        Girl Anna you Ass stink i don’t need this horror in my life.
        Acknowledge me ? Who are you ?
        If it’s not because of TGj where the heck you can find me to talk s*** like this.
        Gosh some people on TGJ feel they are some kind of diva..
        What a pity…Bye

  4. cocobutta October 9, 2016

      • MMADONNA FAN October 9, 2016

STRUGGLING TO OUTSELL ANY OF THEM, YET SHADING OTHER ARTISTS FOR QUICK LITTLE HITS (AND YEAH, EVEN R**** HAS SOLD MORE ALBUMS THAN BEYONKA THIS DECADE WITH LOUD AND TALK THAT TALK ALONE COMPARED TO 4 (WHICH WAS RE-RELEASED) + HAD A REMIX ALBUM, BEYONKA (WHICH HAD AN EXTRA EP WITH NEW SONGS), LEMONADE).

        LOL AT 37.5. STOP TRYING TO MAKE 12 MILLION FOR DIL HAPPEN (IT’S BARELY AT 10 MILLION), 8 MILLION FOR B DAY IS A LOL TOO SINCE THE ALBUM WAS LOCAL. BEYONKA IS STILL UNDER 35 MILLION, SO AVRIL BEATS HER BEYONKA IS A SINGLES ARTIST.

      • HailLegendBeysus October 9, 2016

        @Madracula Lmao why would I need to lie?
        DIL was at 11m for years until sales were finally updated this year and she finally got a 5x platinum certification even tho she qualified for it years ago.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler October 9, 2016

        That can’t be Stephy. I’ve read his post on billboards site every now and then. He’s not a Bey hater on or outside of tgj….at least not from what I’ve seen lol

      • MMADONNA FAN October 9, 2016

        THAT 11 MILLION RECEIPT WAS INFLATED. DIL HAS SOLD BARELY 10 MILLION DESPITE ALL #1 HIT SINGLES. AND BDAY IS NOWHERE NEAR 8 MILLION. STOP WITH THAT WIKIPEDIA INFLATED RECEIPTS. 6.5 MILLION MAXIMUM FOR IT. HER RECEIPTS THREAD ON UKMIX/ATRL AGREES

TAYLOR, RIHANNA, ADELE, LADY GAGA, KATY PERRY HAVE OUTSOLD IN ALBUMS SALES THIS DECADE TOO. SHE’S ALWAYS BEEN OVERSHADOWED BY OTHERS.

    • IStan4Rihanna. October 9, 2016

      @HailBeysus.

      .

      Is it just me or has this blog been stagnant for the past several weeks? These posts as of late are barely managing 100+ comments a piece (even when they are blatantly catered to the ‘Navy & Hive’ in order to start a delicious stan war) and the usual suspects are nowhere to be seen. Has the readership levels probably plummeted some? I’ve seen many “shady” comments about TGJ on BOŚŚIP too and some of its “writers”. Hmmm. Oh well, this site is dry as hell if we’re being honest anyway…

      • HailLegendBeysus October 9, 2016

        Yea,Bey and Rih post were blowing up at the first half of this year. Now the only post that gets remotely close to those others is Gaga with a few 100+ comments post.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler October 9, 2016

        TGJ has been dryer than a Popeyes biscuit as of lately. I tried, but I can’t

      • IStan4Rihanna. October 9, 2016

        @Tyler/Beysus.

        .

        Exactly! This site is dry as hell lately! I don’t know what’s happened. If I’m being honest, either my fave or Beyoncé are really doing anything interesting right now anyway. Rihanna is too busy either walking the streets of NYC & L.A looking hot or dealing with her fashion pursuits and now vacationing in Barbados and Beyoncé has just finished her world tour and we all knows she’s far too “anti” (pun intended) these days to do anything outside of just releasing her music.

        .

        I guess we’ll just have to wait for the AMA’s/GRAMMY’s. LOL!

  8. ??? October 9, 2016

    When will Mariah?

    • MMADONNA FAN October 9, 2016

      MOO MOO HAS OUTSOLD BOTH OF THESE TWO FLOPS COMBINED.

  10. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? October 9, 2016

    Lady GaGa is about to have a meltdown. I wonder if her gay ass fans will over handjobs along with blowjobs this time.

    • Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? October 9, 2016

  11. IStan4Rihanna. October 9, 2016

    @JOANNE.

    .

    ‘Perfect Illusion’ has not “performed well” by any means at all. For an artist of Lady Gaga’s level of popularity and stature, it has completely underperformed and is, quite frankly, one of the most underwhelming lead/comeback singles by a ‘major Pop girl’ this decade thus far.

    .

    It has only reached #1 in three countries across the globe thus far – France, Spain and Brazil. In France it debuted at #1 and fell to #94 the following week; in Spain it debuted at #1 and fell to 35 the following week; it debuted at #1 in Brazil and fell to #14 the following week. Across the anglosphere – the U.S.A; U.K; Canada; Australia; New Zealand; other english-speaking territories – it has been an absolute disappointment in both digital sales and streaming as well as mainstream radio.

    .

    Perhaps she wasn’t trying to capture a “smash-hit” with this record (albeit I find the difficult to fathom and believe) however the song is simply a disaster. It is a bonfide flop!

    • MMADONNA FAN October 9, 2016

      IT WON’T EVEN MATCH RISE. PERFECT DELLUSION IS A HUGE FLOP. JOHN WILL FOLLOW.

  12. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? October 9, 2016

  13. Max October 9, 2016

  15. Nigeria loves rihanna October 9, 2016

    Solange is more talented, natural & real,& got a better voice than her robotic sister beyawnce. At least solange write & produces her album,she doesn’t buy writers like beyawnce.

    • FASHION_ICON ~ Anti&Lemonade October 9, 2016

      Girl Beyoncé voice is ten times better than Solange ….

  25. Rome October 9, 2016

    Yeah. Put the emphasis on sisters. Cause the behive tried to say siblings and the Janet fans quickly shut that s*** down. Lol. Lol. We live in a world where artist fish and look for accomplishments without doing his or her homework first.

      Atleast Solange is a real artist not a puppet like her Aunt Boreyonce.

      • Rosie October 9, 2016

        Aww, someone’s obviously mad that their fave is now a PANNED fad who had the biggest decline in pop music of all time, from biggest artist in the world to selling Demi Lovato numbers first week in singles and clinging to tributes to stay somewhat relevant. I wonder if Joanna Mann will sell more first week than Confident at this point.

  28. LOL October 9, 2016

    LMAO TWO FLOPS SELLING HYPE TO MAKE THEIR FLOPS LOOK LIKE ACHIEVEMENTS, I CAN’T! LMAO.

    • BEY>RIH October 10, 2016

      Dont you stan for gagz? Will she even sell 460 first week? ?

  29. Rosie October 9, 2016

    And to think Solange’s last release didn’t make the top 100. This is amazing for her!
    Both albums are so beautiful. Congrats to both.
