    Love my baddie Bey! She had them pressed and stressed this year, yet she remained unbothered. A true queen!

    If they would have focused my Minutemaid and it’s singles instead of all of this trolling, maybe Beyonce wouldn’t be going on 9 years without a #1 HIT. Or maybe the singles from this LP would’ve stayed on the charts and became HITS and not free fall right off on the second week. Happy 2017 tho. 🙂

      It’s guys like you that make blacks look bad, jealous and uncivilised. You hate on this woman who is representing your race yet at the same time complain about white pop stars selling more bcoz of color. Sometimes put your hate aside and give credit where it’s due. Leave the drama for women you’re a disgrace to manhood. Stop being a b**** i bet you’re the girl in your relationship.

      • Briano January 1, 2017

        She represents creole a black woman would never denounce education and promote colorism, she is garbage, well packaged, choreographed garbage

        Hop to the next d

    I love bey but have to say anti is a much better album I’m still playing it but stopped playing lemonade like 3 months ago

    • BAMMMMMMM.. December 31, 2016

      Samsung should be proud…

    • Swit Katz December 31, 2016

      I don’t get the fuss with anti I’m sure if rihanna was white you’d be bashing her and the album.

      • Myownstan December 31, 2016

        I’m white and I don’t bash anybody that’ was just my personal opinion Beyoncé has a far better back catalogue than Rihanna I’m just saying that I prefer anti and feel that Beyoncé has become too political and less radio friendly but I still live her

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler December 31, 2016

      Yet lemonade has sold more. It’s one of the top 3 best selling releases of 2016.

      • Myownstan December 31, 2016

        I’m not denying her sales and it is a good album I just feel anti is better and when you look at Beyoncé back catalogue she has more radio friendly material than what’s on lemonade that’s all

  7. Briano December 31, 2016

    Lemonade was garbage filled with white supremist and anti community dribble

    Becky does NOT have good hair
    Colorism is not a good look
    And young queens should not be hopping to.the next d

    The worship needs to end, this uneducated greedy narcissistic ego maniac is a destructive force, as intended, community wake up

    Let’s keep it real in 2017, her and jay and their glamorization of drug dealing, materialism, anti education, colorism should be played out, should be

    • Duffster Lovato ? December 31, 2016

      Pressed much?

  8. Duffster Lovato ? December 31, 2016

    Queen Bey just stays slaying, y’all haters can choke on that glass of hatred, Bey will remain in your faces whether you are pleased with it or nah. ?

  9. SWISH December 31, 2016

    lmao this blog (because it’s clearly not a credible source for news) is so tacky. cut out the bias you just might be able to receive a press invitation for the grammys lol

  10. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy December 31, 2016

    This just in. Beyonce is not God. I repeat Beyonce is not God. She cannot offer salvation, she cannot heal, nor can she turn water into wine. New information reports that she is just a mere mortal human being.

  11. LB December 31, 2016

    This album is straight trash, it couldn’t hold my interest. I only liked about 3 songs (Hold up, Daddy Issues and All night being my fav). It is almost as bad as B’Day.

    • Wonder Woman December 31, 2016

      Well In Your Opinion, which no one respects nor cares about
      The professionals who’s opinions really matter gave it a 92% score on METACRITIC
      Topped most of the year end critics charts
      So youcan keep your trashy opinion for this coming November when R9 drops

  12. FASHION_ICON ~ Anti&Lemonade December 31, 2016

    To be very honest Beyoncé Rihanna and Drake own 2016…black artist owned 2016.
    Impact wise:
    Formation was the best video clip of the year for a female artist
    Work was the best song released by a female artist.
    Lemonade visual album was lit, own the talk …but Anti was the album that make most people dance, talk about on the street.
    Beyoncé slayed 2016 with visual ( performance, video clip,ect…)
    Rihanna slayed 2016 with sounds (charts, singles, streams, ect…)
    Two different categories that’s why both owned this year…
    Rihanna video clips were not that great this years…just the sound
    Beyonce.sound were not that great …just the visual…
    Lemonade would not be what it is without those visuals…

  13. Fatusankoh December 31, 2016

    Omg haters are setting as always queen Bey is here to stay weather you haters like it or not she is talented smart she is loved by God good people and her beloved behives her album is the best long live Bey more success long happy life and career god and we your fans love haters don’t maters

  14. Qwerty December 31, 2016

    I agree with fashion icon. I don’t have e either but there are more hits on anti. # no hating #truth

  15. LB December 31, 2016

  19. Xoxo December 31, 2016

  20. Keri Qween January 1, 2017

    Lmao pathetic individuals..death threats? A bunch of punks threatening people they wouldn’t do s*** in anybodys face

  21. Lea January 1, 2017

    To be clear that fan base lost much of its credibility this year. I strongly recommend them sitting 2017 out or atleast until their fave’s numbers and chart positions match her hype because people are starting to see through these celebs fake b*******! Regardless of who a group of “internet thugs” stung she got roasted quite a few times this year from artist and their fans from almosy every genre including the CMA’s where she had no business to begin with! Better drop the wig, old routines, surprise albums about adultery and bowing down. Try something new or have a seat Mrs.Carter and #beehive!
