Beyonce Blasts Into Top 10 Of Billboard 200 With BOTH ‘Homecoming’ & ‘Lemonade’

Published: Sunday 28th Apr 2019 by Sam

Beyonce is proving that when she plays the game, she slays the game.

The singer, who has largely shunned promo in recent years, was thrust back into the flare of the spotlight last week with the debut of her Netflix special ‘Homecoming’ and its companion live album. She followed shortly after with the wide release of 2016’s ‘Lemonade’ – which, prior to now, had been held off all streaming services besides Tidal.

Both have created the perfect storm on this week’s Billboard 200; for, Bey has registered multiple entries – including two within the top 10.

Full story below…

Unveiled moments ago, the latest incarnation of the coveted count sees ‘Homecoming’ climb three places to #4 in its first full week on-sale. It registered 57,000 SPS units.

Elsewhere, ‘Lemonade’ – with just three days worth of streaming activity – rockets to #9 with 30,000 SPS equivalent units.

The ‘Formation’ led LP originally premiered at #1 in 2016 and went on to sell 2.5 million copies.

A huge feat, it marks the first time Queen Bey has registered two albums in the top ten simultaneously. It also is the first time a female act has pulled off said win on the chart in two years.

Interestingly, though the full tally is still incoming, it has been confirmed that two additional albums from the diva feature on this week’s Billboard 200 – 2008’s ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’ and 2013’s ‘Beyonce.’

***********

Congrats!

Beyond serving as a reminder of Bey’s commercial potency, it puts her in amazing stead ahead of the colossal push for ‘The Lion King’ this summer.

That Mrs Carter reign just won’t let up!

    21 years in the game, and she is still one of the most relevant pop music women. Call the Live album a flop all you want, but she still does top ten numbers after 20 years in mainstream music. #KeepAmericaGreat

    • Erica April 28, 2019

      So does pink, Christina, and Britney what’s your point?

      • THA Creative April 28, 2019

      • QueenNickiMinaj April 29, 2019

        Christina and Britney still sells even if their single power is no longer strong

  2. Urg April 28, 2019

      • Haterz Gon‘ Hate April 28, 2019

        I think it is taking its meds‘ after I schooled it to find purpose in life other than running in here trotting out the same ole hate about Homecoming’s opening week sales. SMH 🤦🏾‍♂️

    Can we get some NEW MUSIC we are tired of Freak Em Dress & Lemonade *plays music by Normani the New Queen

    • Haterz Gon‘ Hate April 28, 2019

      But Freakum Dress is not on Lemonade and was not performed at Cochella so…….?? Maybe invest in a streaming platform and play some of her more recent stuff instead?

    • Jasmine April 28, 2019

      I think Bey has LOTs of new music ahead. She just released a new version to Sorry. She also has the Lion King Soundtrack coming out and she has been working on a new album that is coming out later this year.

  4. Ty April 28, 2019

    Hold up homecoming might actually hit number 1? I’m surprised lemonade is in the top10. Congrats not many artists 20 years into their career are achieving the things she is. I need some of that magic she got to rub off on me.

  5. Gee April 28, 2019

    Adding these albums to all platforms was definitely a smart move. You can not deny that Beyoncé is still a major force to be reckoned with in this pop culture game.

    • QueenNickiMinaj April 29, 2019

      I don’t think so. She is below Arianna, Gaga and Riri’s level and popularity

  6. Hmmm… April 28, 2019

    A double win. Issa $20 dollar album with some songs that are over 20 years old. She’s still profiting off of music she made at 16 years old. That’s Crazy.

  7. 4U2SEE April 28, 2019

    They be making up s***. Beyonce came in 1st from the 10 th time in the first 200 on the top 100 billboard for the first time of the third week.

  8. Sup April 28, 2019

    He’s so gross

  9. ME April 28, 2019

    Beyonce is Iconic and headed towards legendary. 20 years in the game is still making impacts on the charts. If she puts out new album, we all know it’s going number one.

    Flop numbers.
    The two albums will tumble down next week.
    Beyonce is the queen of what exactly?

    I’m surprised she hasn’t jumped on old town road remix, we all know how much she loves jumping on other people’s hit songs cause she cant get one on her own. Mi gente, ed Sheeran perfect.

    • Latinissima April 29, 2019
