Beyonce ‘Lemonade’ Certified Double Platinum

Published: Tuesday 21st May 2019 by Sam

Beyonce may be outside of an album cycle, but she continues to rack up accolades for her most recent solo album ‘Lemonade.’

Released in 2016, the set was preceded by ‘Formation’ and arrived in tandem with an award-winning film.

The LP, which has sold millions the world over, was gifted a second wind recently when it landed on all streaming services following three-year exclusivity on TIDAL. Its wide streaming release occurred on the heels of Bey’s net-shaking Netflix special ‘Homecoming’ – which featured several songs from the project.

It would appear that the move helped the set cross a major milestone.

Details below…

As of this month, ‘Lemonade’ has been certified 2x Platinum by the RIAA for selling a whopping 2 million units.

The news means that five of Queen Bey’s six solo albums now have the honor of being multi-Platinum and ALL of her solo albums are at least Platinum.

Suffice to say, this re-affirms the diva’s status as not just a cultural force but a commercial one too.

With ‘Homecoming’ tiding us over, we’re all sorts of buzzed for B7. Are you?

    • Jasmine May 21, 2019

      I thought it was a Tidal exclusive for a long time. That is why I did not buy it. I was forced to download it free because I don’t subscribe to Tidal.

    • CHINA May 21, 2019

      This is a HUGE album for her. I just DISLIKED it. “4” was my album of choice. “4” has great vocals, great RnB music for everyone. “4” she is singing and being the Beyonce I grew up on.

      • Karter May 21, 2019

        @China yesss for 4!! It’s Beyoncé’s best album IMO. I can literally listen to that entire album thru and thru …except for RTW, I hated that song, it doesn’t even fit with the album lol

      • CHINA May 21, 2019

        @karter yes yes and yassssssssssssssss hunty. “4” is a Bey Classic. Fierceness of the Album and determination.

      • A&R May 21, 2019

        Humm… I like the music off 4 but felt like the gumbo concept she went for didn’t come together. As a body of work the songs together lacked cohesion. However, her self titled album, Beyoncé was 4’s concept perfected. It literally showed her seamlessly tie together different sub genres of music. Hunted was an urbanized lady Gaga style pop joint. Drunk In Love screamed Rihanna pour it up but better lol Blow was a new age disco kissed banger! Rocket was traditional R&B Flawless was the ratchet Beyoncé we know. Pretty Hurts was the commercial ballard she gives us err album. Standing on the Sun was the performance queen we love meets afrobeats. The self titled album flowed so well that you wouldn’t realize how different each song really is until you list them apart. Whereas, with 4, the songs are clearly very different… even together. Again, love the music on 4 but disliked the album. Probably the one I reference least.

      • The1 May 21, 2019

        4 is a classic

      • Trose May 22, 2019

        I agree with anr beyonce is her MOMENT.That album tied everything together and was fresh…..it wad betince stepoing ourside her comfort zone thats when i became a fan…self torked showcased TRUE ARTISTRY and vision. And MINE is one of her best tracks still!!!

  2. truthtea May 21, 2019

    How many years later?

    • Danny Bey May 21, 2019

      That’s called longevity. Still on the charts and SELLING ANNNND STREAMING three years later. Nobody else her contemporary is doing it. Sit.

      • ??? May 21, 2019

        lmaoooo no bishhhh, cuz her contemporaries are selling this amount in MINUTES, not YEARS like this struggle roach. so u can go ahead and take that seat lmfaoooooooooooooooo

      • Karter May 21, 2019

        @??? Which one of Beyoncé’s contemporaries are going double plat in pure sales?? Matter of fact, go pay that extra dime to the librarian and ask for a little more time to use the computer so you can google which of her contemporaries are going double platinum in pure and streaming… then walk to your nearest corner store payphone and call us when you have the answer 😊

      • Claude Remains May 21, 2019

        Adele did this in a week!!!

  3. gina May 21, 2019

    but it took her 3 years to sell what her peers can sell in hours tho…

    • Danny Bey May 21, 2019

      Who’s selling 2 million in three hours??????? Besides Adele and Taylor. ILL WAIT.

      • ??? May 21, 2019

        lmaooo thats all you need to name bug, so call us when struggle roach starts selling like them. WE’LL WAIT lmfaoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

      • Karter May 21, 2019

        @??? aka Beyoncé’s BIGGEST fan on TGJ… “starts selling like them” meanwhile, “Reputation” has only sold LESS than 200k more than Lemonade so chill. You’re pathetic and your “drags” are tired, come harder.

      • Jasmine May 21, 2019

        Ciara sold 2 million copies on the invisible charts. Her invisible troll fans teamed up to support Stretch Marks. It debuted at #1 on the invisible charts and her hit single Level Up is certified 5x Invisible Platinum. Ciara doing big things yall. She about to headline a invisible world tour and is negotiating a Vegas residency at the prestigious Hotel Circus Circus.

      • ??? May 21, 2019

        @karter lmaooo nice try bug, taylor slays this Struggle bug in sales and thats FACT. now explain how taylors new SINGLE sold more in 10 minutes than #HomeFLOPPING sold in weeks even with netflix. now SIT until roach starts selling like them like i said lmfaooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

      • Karter May 21, 2019

        @??? Clearly you don’t know the meaning of facts, hun. It’s a FACT that Taylor’s last album sold over 1mill copies in it’s first week and has since only sold a little over 1mill, that’s not a slay child. It’s also a fact that currently, Reputation has only sold a little over 2.1 million copies… lol come harder, dear. And how desperate are you to compare a brand new single of TS to a whole LIVE CONCERT album?? LOL, chile please, go play in traffic.

    • Caleb May 21, 2019

      What peers are you taking about? These numbers are great these days. Ciara can’t even get Russel Wilson and Baby Future to stream her new album.

      • ??? May 21, 2019

        lmaooo and roach couldnt get camel or navy blue to buy or stream more than 14k of #HomeFLOPPING even with netflix so whats your point lmfaoooooo

      • Caleb May 21, 2019

        @ ???
        Yet Homecoming (a live album) debuted at #4 as opposed to Ciara’s actual studio album which debuted at #87. That’s a HUGE difference.

      • Karter May 21, 2019

        Hold up… @??? is a Ciara stan?!! Ikyfl 😂😂 It can’t be a Ciara stan and talking all this crap about Bey!!? Somebody take the wheel! 😂

  4. SMH May 21, 2019

    All that hoopla and hollering, and she’s just now hitting 2 million sales? Ok.🙄

    • Danny Bey May 21, 2019

      Who’s the last girl to sell 2 million pure anything besides the white pop girls Taylor and Adele? I’ll wait.

  5. Karter May 21, 2019

    Lol the haters always commenting on Bey’s post before the fans… y’all have serious personality disorders, seek help.

  6. Caleb May 21, 2019

    It has been eligible for a really long time. I don’t see how Sasha Fierce is still stuck on 2x platinum when it has sold well over 3 million pure sales and way more if you were to factor in streaming.

    • ??? May 21, 2019

      lmaooooo the lies you tell, roach is a FLOP, stop inflating her imaginary numbers lmfaooooo

    • Karter May 21, 2019

      @Caleb Beyoncé doesn’t update her certifications. For example, Crazy In Love is still certified gold after all these years. Both IASF and BDAY are still certified platinum when they’ve both sold over 3 million copies in the states alone. Artist have to request and pay for their certifications. People like @??? know this, they just like to have something to hate.

      • Caleb May 21, 2019

        I wish she would update the certs just to shut them up.

  7. Pat May 21, 2019

    Lmao. The hive is just large n loud. The average gp couldnt tell u her last hit since single ladies.

    • Danny Bey May 21, 2019

      The average gp are Beyoncé fans and actually could. The minority are haters that know every last bit of her discography. But carry on mad cow

  8. Claude Remains May 21, 2019

    So released in 2016 it’s taken three years to sell two million copies.

    Adele’s 25 sold 3.4 million copies in seven days.

    Beyonce is hardly record-breaking!!!

  9. Theman May 21, 2019

    It has been 2x platinum and those are real sales/units. Awesome job.

  10. Ratedxxx May 21, 2019

    Poor little tink tink
    Trying so hard to have a diamond album…

    I cannot stop laughing. At all the fake numbers.

    You mean to tell me that this 3 year old album
    Just now went platnum….

    Adele did this number in 2 weeks

  11. Ratedxxx May 21, 2019

    Like i said joe camel and his basic as heck wife smoke and mirrors……

    They lie so much that its so pathetic…

    I thought she made a song about not caring about streaming numbers and when the album sucked she suddenly
    Released it on all streaming

    Smoke and mirrors

    • Jasmine1999 May 21, 2019

      Yea she released to 3yrs later FOOL. The haters are sooooo mad right now. Haha haha Bey is a platinum selling artist y’all can’t deal. Love watching you guys get upset at anything Bey does when she could care lesss about you.

  12. Tyty May 21, 2019

    When Beyonce haters favs posts are up they pay them dust yet claim how much better they are than Beyonce as soon as a Beyonce post is up they come rushing. So are y’all fans? I noticed that with a cardi b post all the Nicki fans were ranting how much better Nicki is than cardi yet on a post involving a Nicki song none of them commented. Anyway, congrats none of her peers are selling this much 20 years in the game. So some cling onto Taylor Swift and Adele to try to invalidate a black woman success 😂😂

    • ME May 22, 2019

      👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾Who is selling 1 million + like Beyoncé in this day and been in the game for over 15 – 20 years??? Beyonce haters need a brain. Really bad. Poor people.

  13. Just saying May 21, 2019

    What’s crazy is y’all are dragging Ciara for going gold in less than a year !

  14. Armani May 21, 2019

    It has been past 2 million units since 2016.

    She certified off pure sales💀

    • Lisa June 12, 2019

      Stop with all the lies its not pure sales and Beyonce doesn’t sell music like yall think. Her money comes from touring. The album has only sold 2 mil in the US and streaming help it accomplished this. Y’all making dumb excuses saying how Beyonce don’t update s*** why wouldn’t she? She’s very egotistic and standoffish. This is embarassing after 3 years for an artist that has media power but not so much chart power even albums like Anti and views from tge six are 3 times platinum and almost 4x.

  15. ME May 22, 2019

    Congratulations Queen Bey. This woman has been in the game for over 20 years and still going platinum. Who is doing this in today’s music?? No one. Pink is the only one that come close. Beyonce is a living legend. She isn’t worried about no Adele or Taylor. Trust me, they want what she has. Icon status, and longevity. They know who’s the Queen is 👑 and when did sales make anyone great. People like MJ, Whitney, Aretha, Tina, had talent and sales. Most of the people hating on Beyonce, favs mostly produce sales. The shade.

  16. ME May 22, 2019

    You know you that Bish when u cause All these conversations Hey haters ✋🏽✋🏽✋🏽✋🏽

  17. MadonnaQueenofBeyhives May 22, 2019
