Beyonce‘s been deemed “the Queen” of many things over her illustrious two-decade career and now it seems she can add Youtube to her list of conquests.
Her show-stopping performance at last weekend’s Coachella – still very much the talk of many-a-headline for its celebration of African American culture and historically Black colleges and universities – also broke live stream records along the way.
Boasting a 75% increase in viewership over last year’s top act, Lady Gaga, look inside to see just how many people tuned in to see Bey absolutely kill the Coachella stage:
“Beyonce‘s got YouTube crazy in love thanks to her Coachella performance which set a live stream record.
Bey’s Saturday performance drew 458k simultaneous viewers on YouTube … the most ever for a single Coachella performance since they started streaming the festival 8 years ago. In all, we’re told the opening weekend — which also included The Weeknd, Eminem and Migos, — generated 43.1 million live stream views in 232 countries. That makes it the most-viewed live music festival ever on YouTube.”
Congratz to Bey and team for the amazing outing!
