    Beyoncé would never

    • G7Pat June 30, 2018

      Could never

  2. Camel wife June 30, 2018

    Beyonce could not do this on her own

  3. Alex June 30, 2018

    It’s funny Bey is still the topic of conversation, even when the site is discussing about another artist ?

    • ??? June 30, 2018

      lmao and yet she still FLOPPED lmfaooooo ??

      • ??! June 30, 2018

        #2 is not a flop especially for a surprise release. Also, Bey is on her 3rd Stadium Tour. #StadiumStatus no worried about streams.

      • ??! June 30, 2018

        Congrats to Drake tho. Great album.

    • Angello June 30, 2018

      her fans were saying once she puts her music on Spotify she would smash… She put it there and she fIopped LOL

  4. B2B June 30, 2018

    Is this news? Did you think he would not kill that record? Nice for What has been slaying for months. I bet you also think his first week will be less than 1 million? I expect 2 million first week from Drake considering all things.

  5. DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 30, 2018

    youtube Shawn Cee he gave a great review on this garbage album. WHOLE ALBUM GARBAGE 2/5. MIXTAPE MATERIAL. Lol it’s being trashed by his own fans on Metacritic, so many SKIP WORTHY tracks, they collectively gave it a 5/10 ?.THE CARTERS would never. Let the FRONT LOADED Sales begin. ??️

    • Retribution June 30, 2018

      What are you the Carters’ publicist? You stay doing the most on this site and defending them in every post. Girl do you have a life? Get back to eating that fried chicken and shut the **** up.

    • Tired of Exposing June 30, 2018

      You can call Everyrhing is Cheating: F*** The Feminism whatever you want but by the end of the week Drake will outsell them and have another #1 on the hot 200. And be true to yourself that is an album made by two singers who view themselves as the king and queen of music and with a stadium tour to support it. For god sake they sang apeshit for the first time in London during their concert…It’s not a Soundtrack or ep ahaha By the way you start loving at talking about metacritics after the good grade given to lemonade?
      Just plainly ridiculous…you can say what you want and create thousands of fake acc the to change Drake’s grade but the truth is he’ll outsold the Cheaters and will be number #1 next week on the hot 200 and have amazing songs/singles on this album.
      By the way Everything is Cheating: F*** the Feminism last week on the uk charts debuted in #5 with 10,454 units hahaha
      Behind The Beach Boys (12,172), 5SOS (16,040), George Ezra (19,899) and The Greatesr Showman (32,466). The Cheaters ep is running wild everywhere! Hahaha

  6. DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 30, 2018

    BTW there are like 25 songs, easy to get high streams with this many tracks and Drake knew this… He knows his fans will eat everything he serves like rats ??. Ratchet birthday might be the worse song I heard all year. ? My prediction is 400k pure sales and 575k SPS… BUT Forgotten by next week.

    • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 30, 2018

      That is not true. Chris Brown had over double this many songs on his album and could not pull this off. Give credit when credit is do.

      • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 30, 2018

        Chris brown is wayyyy past his prime so that’s not a fair comparison plus Chris isn’t overrated like Drake cuz Chris doesn’t even have a rating anymore. Only credit Drake deserves is being able to amass so many fans with such a Sub Par music Catalog, he’s the male Jlo just more successful with more fans lol

      • Lake Erie June 30, 2018

        Mmmmm. I love Breezy but you can’t even compare the 2 based on numbers. It wouldn’t even be farfetched to say Drake will do OVER 400k..tbh.. he’s capable. I highly doubt my boy breezy would do those numbers even with a quad disc.

      • Caleb June 30, 2018

        Great point. I was thinking the same thing.

  7. DC3 FOREVER June 30, 2018

    It’s funy how the haters are always comparing Beyoncé to something great and saying she could never do it. If she’s such a “Flop” why don’t ya yall ever compare y’alls queen of flop Rihanna to anything great? Y’all are low key Stan’s for BEYONCÉ y’all know way more about her than fans do

    • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 30, 2018

      Well it is true. When has Beyonce had the #1 song for almost half of a year?

      • ??! June 30, 2018

        Could’ve sworn Irreplaceable, CIL, and Single Ladies. Old singles, but still happened. All her singles are impactful regardless of chart position. Still at the top of forbes list, still performing at stadiums. You’re still mad lol.

  8. The Real June 30, 2018

    Duh… he was literally promoted all over the spotify. He was added to all the major playlists plus some. But kudos to drake he knows how to play the game. Keeps his name hot with the right hype by dropping the right singles at the right time. Something the carters seem to have forgotten. They should remember that their bread and butter is the music. That’s what gave them their clout in the first place and they should always remember that. I like them but they’re aggorance is holding them back some I can admit that.

  9. Lake Erie June 30, 2018

    I understand Beyonce and Jay-Z are trying to put Tidal ON but I think they missed out on a lot of sells not releasing it on ALL platforms. I also think they should have just set a date and had it available in stores too. And yea, yea.. they said they could care less about numbers now but I think there were potential customers who would have streamed or bought it just ON curiosity. But from some word of mouth, (a lot of haters poisoning the hype) those potential customers said “Nevermind” smh.

  10. ??? June 30, 2018

    lmfaooooo king drake obliterates everything is FLOPPED as expected lmfaooooo ???

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 30, 2018

      Why u comparing an EP/MIXTAPE/SOUNDTRACK to an album with multiple songs/videos out to help promote it. King of FRONT LOADED = King Drake ?

      • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 30, 2018

        Everything is FLOP is NOT a MIXTAPE. It is an official album, marketed as an album, and promoted as an album. Stop making excuses. Everything is FLOP is very “front loaded”. Drake got singles for days off this album and has already had two long-lasting #1 singles from this album. Everything is FLOP had 2 first singles, one of which did not make the album (Top off Maybach) and the other one has a video out to accompany it (aPEFLOP). Thus, no more excuses. Face the FLOP.

      • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 30, 2018

        This coming from someone that thinks BACK UP CREOLE and LOST YO MIND are great songs lol. DRAKE album is Garbage, there are about 3 other songs that could be singles but there isnt 1 great song on this album. MEDIOCRE asf. 4:44 had nothing but quality, all 13 songs were Fire and either good or great… my fav being Caught in their Eyes, bam, OJ and marcy me. and everything isnt a serious album which is why i consider it a OK album for the carters current standard but a great MIXTAPE and good for musics current standard. standards that are at a new low if ppl are impressed by a wack rapper like DRAKE, The new and improved JLO LOL

      • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 30, 2018

        And TOP OFF is DJ khalad album lead single also featuring Future. Not meant for ‘Everything isn’t serious’ album

      • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) July 1, 2018

        Everything is FLOP is going had a 73% decline in sales this week. You making fun of other artists but clearly are delusional about your fav’s flop. You troll this site and try to push your favs on posts that are not even about them like that Whitney post. You need to drink your own kool-aid and stop sipping Roach n Jiggaboo’s front loaded kool-laid. Backup and Lost Ur Mind were great songs. Also, don’t put words in my mouth. Those were the only two songs I mentioned liking from the B’Day era that was not on Roach’s album. That does not mean you get to twist my words to say I like songs like Creole when I never said that!

  11. Angello June 30, 2018

    And Beyawnsey and Camel-Z’s “long anticipanted” album? LMAOOOOOO

  12. Fancy BISH June 30, 2018

    “I just flipped the switch, (flip flip) I don’t know nobody else that’s doing this”
    #Scorpion ??

  13. ??! June 30, 2018

    I haven’t cared for Drake in a long time but this album was really good. It is a decent album and congrats to him for the success he is recieving. I’m just confused as to why people are mentioning Beyonce and Jay-Z.

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 30, 2018

      The album is GARBAGE 2/5. The Carter’s new EP/MIXTAPE/SOUNDTRACK is far better.

      • Angello June 30, 2018

        the carters fIopped and their album was Migos rejects. a bomb.

  14. Ropeburn June 30, 2018

    Yaassss. Queen Drakeisha came to slay dem h.o.e.s.

  15. JOHNVIDAL June 30, 2018

    I don´t get it. What´s his appeal?

  16. DanYiel Iman June 30, 2018

    IMO his crowd is females & Caucasian folks they like him, NO MATTER WHAT!!

  17. DanYiel Iman June 30, 2018

    Beyoncé & Jay Z Made 52 million on 9 shows obviously numbers don’t matter to them!!

    • Angello June 30, 2018

      fraudulent numbers. full curtains and empty spaces.

  18. Tino June 30, 2018

    I’ll never understand why people love this cornball
