    “Disney‘s ‘Lion King‘ is on its way to becoming one of the highest-earning movie releases of the year.“

    – “Beyoncé‘s ‘The Gift‘ is on its way to becoming one of the biggest flop releases of the year.”

    LMAO

      It’s soo funny because this is what haters were saying when 4 dropped. She’s finished. Then the surprised album dropped and changed the music industry. What’s gonna be funny like everything is love it’s gonna have low sales but win all these awards

      • SMH July 28, 2019

        Except 4 didn’t tank this hard, and she already used the surprise gimmick 3 times in the last 5 years. Not gonna work next time.

      • NickiBarbz July 28, 2019

        They brought the awards dummy
        Awards didn’t produce good sales
        Actually it is flopt

    • ??? July 28, 2019

      lmaooooo I think she’s actually battling Iggy azalea for biggest FLOP of the year lmfaooooo 😂 😂😂 😂

    • Burbank July 28, 2019

      You have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem.
      I have been working with this for a month and have made over $2,000 already. let me know if you need more help.

      Why do y’all keep saying this as if it’s an official Beyoncé album. This and Homecoming are NOT solo efforts. So it’s to be expected that the sales are gonna be abysmal. Now Love Is a everything (or whatever it was called) was a flop and a disappointment for both Jay and Bey, but as for as Solo Solo Beyonce projects, she’s doing just fine.

      • Jasmine The Real Princess July 28, 2019

        She’s a FLOP. Deal with it.

      • SMH July 29, 2019

        Stop it. Her name is on it, its her solo project. Period.

    LION KING: THE GIFT is not critically praised. it’s a cultural project geared towards black people. white critics & other mainstream writers CAN NOT speak openly or honestly about the music without receiving major social backlash. in today’s climate, pop culture reviewers CANNOT say anything honest about black people, fat folks or members of our LGBT community. in the industry, regardless of how a writer honestly feels about Beyonce, her work or this overhyped Lion King music, they are almost EXPECTED to extend unwarranted praise & undeserved recognition. There are maybe 3 or 4 songs from THE GIFT have a special quality to them. other than that, the curated project is just as pedestrian & basic as her HOMECOMING live album & that collabo effort she & Jay ‘surprised” us with last year. Beyonce’s Smoke & Mirrors are clearly beginning to crack & fade. The mainstream viewer who is really focused on pop culture, is seeing that Beyonce really isn’t the commercial force that she is billed to be.

    People can say what they want about this ‘only being a soundtrack’. HOWEVER, it Whitney Houston’s prime, her BODYGUARD ‘soundtrack’ & the WAITING TO EXHALE ‘soundtrack’ were both stellar, commercially astonishing projects.

    IF BEYONCE WERE THE CREATIVE, ARTISTIC, POP CULTURE, POWERHOUSE THAT ONLY HER FANS PROCLAIM HER TO BE, this Lion King ‘soundtrack’ would still be doing BIG numbers.

    Kendrick Lamar didn’t have problems selling the BLACK PANTHER ‘soundtrack’.

    im just saying…

    • Justme July 28, 2019

      I didn’t even read all that. But like I told the first hater. Haters said this about 4. They were talking crap. Then the visual album dropped and it’s been egg on your face ever since. She is not gonna sale big but watch how many awards she get for the “flops” she’s releasing. Beyonce is not like the others. When will you fools get that. She’s gonna win AMAs, Grammys, Emmy, golden globe, and maybe the Oscar for this “flop” and the haters gonna be mad

      • ??? July 28, 2019

        lmaoooo keep dreaming bug, nobody is gonna remember this 949 selling FLOP at awards season, unless she takes her check book out right now and starts writing checks for those awards lmfaooooo 😂 😂😂 😂

      • Jasmine July 28, 2019

        Remember the visual album was a Tidal exclusive. Tidal lied about their numbers. Target refused the album when it was finally available for other retailers and so did a couple other retailers. Her greed got in the way again

      • The lunatics (@??? @smh and @jasmine the real July 28, 2019

        Your excuse is she pays for her awards lmao that means every celebrity out there would be paying for awards and the public would find out dummy

      • ??? July 29, 2019

        lmaooooo the public already knows, stupid, kanye put this fraud on blast about her award purchases last year, keep up stupid lmfaooooo

    Kendrick Lamar didn’t have problems selling the BLACK PANTHER ‘soundtrack’. He also didn’t have trouble receiving radio play or award recognition for the work.

    • NickiBarbz July 28, 2019

      Meanwhile A Star Is Born by Lady Gaga is still in Top 15 in the charts
      And Billie Eilish is slaying in the charts. She is the big thing after Gaga

      Beyonce’s the Gift? Lost its steam and propelling out of top 40 next week. Tidal’s inflated streaming may help;)

      • The lunatics (@??? @smh and @jasmine the real July 28, 2019

        Yeeeessss clock in keep checking one beyonce even you want to see her thrive since you post everyday talking about her and her track record. I just gnome tf out of people I so called don’t care about and can’t stand. I

    Beyonce’s “The Gift” has been returned. It’s unclear if that’s for store credit or cash.

    Seriously, Beyonce is supposed to be the top of the current heap of pop stars, right? Queen of something or other.

    But “The Lion King: The Gift” has sold just 50,000 copies in its first week, and most of those were streaming. Only around 10,000 were physical sales.

    On top of that, no singles have emerged despite many possibilities from the album. The first track released, “Spirit,” went nowhere immediately. “Brown Skin Girl” has plateaued at 37 on iTunes. No other singles have surfaced on iTunes. Basically, a new Beyonce album has been met with a meh response from her fans.

    Even though “The Lion King” movie has made $300 million so far, the music side has certainly collapsed. The biggest issue would be marketing– there hasn’t been any. Beyonce hasn’t appeared on any TV shows singing these songs. There’s a kind of hubris attached to just dropping new music and not promoting it.

    • NotoriousTruthTeller July 28, 2019

      Lady Gaga didn’t sing the songs or appeared on that many shows to promote the project. Still ‘Shallow’ became a huge ww hit for her and B.Cooper. She let the music speak for it self and didn’t let marketing do the talking.

      Beyoncé should’ve taken notes.

    • ??? July 28, 2019

      Lmaoooo the gift has been returned, not sure for store credit or cash, I am WEAK at lmfaooooo 😂 😂😂 😂💀💀💀💀

    Its always the same boring haters repeating the same clap trap over and over. I’m sick of this blog. This article is also very stupid.

    • Jasmine The Real Princess July 28, 2019

      Flop flop flop

      • Tyty July 28, 2019

        Hey Clarkson is this personality number 4???

      • Jasmine The Real Princess July 28, 2019

        I’m actually your slût mom

      • Tyty July 28, 2019

        Ahh was that supposed to hurt? You must be the low IQ personality 😂😭

    • The lunatics (@??? @smh and @jasmine the real July 28, 2019

      It is! It’s crazy how do people (2 people) who claim not to like Bey post the same negative s*** over and and over they call everything a flop whilst she still rules the world of entertainment.

      • Shayla Queen July 28, 2019

        Which world of entertainment? On which planet? With 3 flop albums? WHERE THE WORLD OF ENTERTAINMENT SHE RULING 🤣🤣🤣

      • Jasmine The Real Princess July 28, 2019

        Flop flop flop

  8. Tyty July 28, 2019

    Post her new pics she looks very pregnant instead of this boring nonsense.

    • Jasmine The Real Princess July 28, 2019

      Her uterus is not able to produce kids naturally. If anything it’s just another prosthetic belly for sim promo now that’s she’s flopping.

      Or she’s just becoming an old and obese woman. 🤷‍♂️

      • Tyty July 28, 2019

        What’s clear is somebody uterus wasn’t working properly when it produced you. 💁🏽‍♀️ Your mom or dad should have probably thought twice before passing on their genetics. Producing a mentally ill lunatic is always a disappointment

      • Jasmine The Real Princess July 28, 2019

        Okay Onika

    I’ve already thought “Simba” was the main character and everyone else were supporting case. I mean he’s on the cover. If I didn’t know any better or come to this site, I would of thought they changed it and made it about Nala (Beyonce). I’m not Beyonce hater, but y’all sure do make her a target for criticism. A lot of reviews and comments from movie goer’s said she was just being Beyonce. When she spoke, you heard her, not Nala, if you know what I mean. She’s in a movie that was going to be successful, no matter who the characters were. The only voice people care about was Jamez Earl Jones reprising his role.

    • Jamon_84 July 28, 2019

      “I’ve always”

  10. Ariana Grande July 28, 2019

    ’twas an awesome movie. Beyonce is not a great actor though.

    • Shayla Queen July 28, 2019

      She isn’t a great anything. Can’t even push record units.

      • Jasmine The Real Princess July 28, 2019

        Can’t even push out babies on her own.
