Beyonce & Jay-Z Hit #1 On iTunes With ‘APES**T’

Published: Tuesday 19th Jun 2018 by Sam

Beyonce and Jay-Z shocked the masses when they dropped their surprise-but-much-rumored joint album ‘Everything Is Love’ over the weekend.

The 9-track set was turbo-powered by the video for ‘APES**T,’ which featured the couple flexing inside and outside the Louvre in Paris.

And it seems folk are reacting exactly how the song’s title asks.

Details below…

As at writing, ‘APES**T’ has rocketed to #1 on US iTunes.

The feat occurred on the same day the album went wide at digital retailers, Apple Music, and Spotify following a window of TIDAL exclusivity.

Of course, the cut’s streaming and radio performance will need to be factored in to determine its ultimate Billboard placement. But, in the here and now, it’s slaying out of the gate.

Granted it’s unlikely that “traditional promo” is breakfast table convo for The Carters, it will be interesting to see what they have up their sleeve (beyond their ‘On The Run II Tour’) to plug the project.

‘APESH**T’ is easily the album’s most workable track in terms of commercial potential, so we’re crossing our fingers and toes for a huge push.

    • SMH June 19, 2018

      Exactly, you know how many songs “rocket” to #1 on itunes just to go MIA on the hot 100? This is nothing to brag about.

  3. pat June 19, 2018

    the song is tanking on spotify streaming….. maybe because its only for premium users

    • ??? June 19, 2018

  4. ??? June 19, 2018

  5. Meme June 19, 2018

    I gave the album 5 more listens because I want to like it but Ape and Friends are the only 2 songs I can see being singles from this album. Friends is immaculate, I literally feel jay as he raps his words and Beyonce as she sings.

    Everything else is very noisy and busy.

      You must have a lot of time on your hands.

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 19, 2018

      leave it to a RIH SCEDULED fan to think of the petty singles. i havent heard the album yet in full but I will safely assume that those 2 are the WORSE songs on it after the previews ive heard 713 summer and heard about us sound the most impressive.

      • ??? June 19, 2018

        lmao i guarantee you this gorilla sh*t is worse than ANYTHING queen Riri would ever record. and Rih makes charted hits, can roach say that? lmfaoooooooooooooo

    • Lake Erie June 19, 2018

      You don’t like BOSS?

  6. Lol June 19, 2018

    Lol no it’s not. They were number 1 for like 2 hours then xxxtentation kicked them out. Delete this lmao

    • ??? June 19, 2018

      lmaooo and the ultimate gag will be if his album blocks them from #1 on billboard, i will holler lmfaooooooooooooo

    • Meme June 19, 2018

      I’m hollering

  7. truthtea June 19, 2018

    If I didn’t like Beyawnce before, I can’t stand her ass now! Why wait all this time to drop a new album and not before you launch the tour? Why wait till the day after Xtina’s Liberation? See, Beyawnce is petty, catty, and shady, and just validates what we all know about her. She doesn’t like competition and in the event she feels threatened, she pulls this petty s***! Oh well, at least Xtina doesn’t have the feds knocking at her door with plagiarism lawsuits and illegal streaming numbers! Xtina doesn’t care about charts but boy does Beyawnce!

    • ??? June 19, 2018

      lmao all facts.

    • Erica June 19, 2018

      Even tho I don’t like beyonce album (trash) I’m pretty sure she was not thinking bout xtina if anything Jay release this because of nas album they had a real documented beef. xtina has shaded beyonce more than once, but I think you reaching xtina wasn’t going number 1 anyway

      • truthtea June 19, 2018

        Provide me receipts Xtina ever shaded her. Xtina has shown her nothing but love.

      • SMH June 19, 2018

        No, I think they were both being petty, Jay towards Nas & Coonye, and beyonce towards Xtina. And lets not act like beyonce hasn’t shaded Xtina several times in the past too, she is no saint. and yes Xtina was a contender for #1. Bottom line, these two never do anything that will make them actually face their competition, they always stoop to underhanded tactics. That has always been Jay’s method of operation going back to his Marcy days, and he clearly taught his wife to do the same.

      • ??? June 19, 2018

        lmao please, roach knows shes no match for the voice of a generation xtina. her roach screetching cant handle xtina’s vocal slayage so of course the bug is being petty lmfaoooo

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 19, 2018

      Xtina is so IRRELEVANT I doubt bey even knew about straintinas Desperation album. The album wasn’t even finished yet until days ago.

      • ??? June 19, 2018

        lmao and thats why everything is desperate is being ended by a dead rapper. dont get anymore IRRELEVANT than that lmfaoooooooooooooooooo

  8. Ben June 19, 2018

    I love Beyonce’s ild music, seems like she lost her way and sound…
    this song is disaster from start to finish.

    She needs to go back to her roots. Those messy records she’s dropping are not Music, imo.

  9. Fancy BISH June 19, 2018

    Lawd, they upSET 😂 #Carters

  10. DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 19, 2018

    havent heard the album yet in full but I will safely assume that those 2 are the WORSE songs on it after the previews ive heard 713 summer and heard about us sound the most impressive.

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 19, 2018

      Would thar explain why EVERYTHING got 78 score on metacritic vs Straintina Desperations 73 and how Nas only got 60… No jayz album ranks that low

    • Mr.m June 19, 2018

      • Bad B**** June 19, 2018

        NO its still at 80😚

  12. Hoodrat June 19, 2018

    I’m so tired of Beyonce trying to rap instead of singing with her beautiful voice.

    • Mr.m June 19, 2018

      The monkeyonce voice is gone..
      She’s been lipsyncing for over a decade now

  13. Lake Erie June 19, 2018

    I think “Salud! would be a good one too if worked right. That’s my favorite track on the album. .. .. Oh yea, and “FRIENDS” is another good one too. I could see A LOT of people today taking a bunch of captions for IG or FB or making post from that song. And IDK if its single worthy but I also like “BOSS”.

  14. Bad B**** June 19, 2018

    Yas Queen!20+years of relevancy and showing no signs of slowing down..These other girls wish they had beyonce’s I cant wait to see the revamped tour..I know its going to be everything!!!!!

  15. Bad B**** June 19, 2018

    I love how these people are claiming the album is so bad but flock to every Beyonce post..when u could be listening to Floperation. Since its so damn good.😂

  16. i hate yall bitchexxxx June 19, 2018

  17. DanYiel Iman June 19, 2018
