Chart Check: Beyonce’s ‘Before I Let Go’ Becomes Her 60th Hot 100 Hit

Published: Saturday 4th May 2019 by Rashad

Both the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 welcomed music superstar Beyonce home thanks to entries from her live album, ‘Homecoming.’

As we previously reported (click here to read), the diva placed two projects in the album chart’s top 10 (‘Homecoming’ and her last studio effort, 2016’s ‘Lemonade’).  But, in case that wasn’t enough, the latter project’s only “new” cut – ‘Before I Let Go’ – earned a placement on the refreshed Hot 100.  A remake of the classic 1981 hit by Frankie Beverly & Maze, ‘Let’s appearance on the singles chart – fueled in great part by the #BeforeILetGoChallenge – comes as a milestone for songstress as it made her the fourth female artist in history to amass at least 60 entries on the tally.

Trailing only Nicki Minaj (whose 102 Hot 100 entries makes her the leader among women), Taylor Swift (78), and Aretha Franklin (73), Bey’s latest chart achievement joins a bevy of accomplishments the singer’s collected over her historic 20+ year career.

        You can tell someone age just by you saying this.. your definitely delusional and to young and uneducated.. Taylor and adele don’t even believe they’re better than beyoncè in anything but you do.

      • RollingInTheDeep May 4, 2019

        Its a fact that Adele and Taylor is more popular and outsold Beyonce in different level

        That is not delusion, its a fact
        Beyonce is no better or superior than Adele or Taylor

        I don’t like Beyonce’s music now
        She used to be good in Destinys child

        Aretha is better than Beyonce in singing
        Tina is better than Beyonce on performance

      • ME May 4, 2019

        Beyonce discography is over 200 million records, Adele isn’t. Also Adele will tell you, who her Queen is.

      • ME May 4, 2019

        Rolling in the deep that’s your opinion, just like everyone has an ass, and yours isn’t special.

    The struggle is real. Even after starting a lame dance challenge. Smh

  3. Justme May 4, 2019

    I live the haters.. the article is about her 60 hit. All the artist that’s name Taylor, nicki, Aretha all these songs did not make the top 10 or #1 they made the top 100. That could be at #78. People love to hate anything beyonce. That’s ok. She is still the queen over everything

    • MR RCW May 4, 2019

      That’s where you’re wrong! Aretha will always be the Queen FYI

  4. FentyBeuty May 4, 2019

    Beyonce is the new Nicki Minaj

    She is trailing Nicki for most charted female artist with featured

    Too bad Aretha and Taylor is ahead of her

    • MR RCW May 4, 2019

      Too bad?! You sound crazy!!! All hail the Queen of Soul. How dare you try to discredit the best to ever do it…thank Aretha paving the way for the young girls. Aretha was the IT GIRL…she had those records when it was look at as impossible to achieve…foh

      • FentyBeuty May 4, 2019

        I was saying it in a positive way. Aretha is the most charted female artist of all time without features

        Rest in peace Queen of Soul

  5. FentyBeuty May 4, 2019

    Because. Both kelly and Michelle are called flops..
    Smoke and mirrors

  11. L’ORANGE May 4, 2019

    It was a terrible remake

  12. Unnatural May 4, 2019

    It wld be impressing it were actually her song but because its a remake of an original…?.

    • I hate b&w b itchezz . They both not sht May 4, 2019

      Yup and she still can’t hit a note like Whitney Houston.

      • I hate b&w b itchezz . They both not sht May 4, 2019

        I see why she gotta break out the g string up her ass…..cuz darling the industry is furious .. After Whitney Houston…the writers just can’t write like that for a thief like Beyonce and Mariah .

        Whitney Houston was a beautiful icon who should have won at THE 2019 BB MA .
