Chart Check [Hot 100]: Beyoncé Bags 40th Top 40 Hit with ‘Black Parade’

Published: Tuesday 30th Jun 2020 by Rashad

Last week (as we reported here), Beyoncé sprang a surprise on fans when she unleashed new song ‘Black Parade.’

Wasting no time zooming to the top of real-time sales tallies (where it remained for days after its premiere), the Derek Dixie-produced bop came as a musical celebration of Juneteenth – the holiday designated to honor the end of slavery.

Now, her beloved fans – affectionately called the #Beyhive – have even more reason to celebrate as the updated Billboard Hot 100 reveals the tune has made a promising start.  Debuting at #37, the entry not only marks Bey’s 40th trip to that region of the chart since the start of her solo career in 2002 but also her 65th solo Hot 100 entry overall.

Look inside to see who joins her on this week’s TGJ Chart Check: Hot 100:

    • Dc June 30, 2020

      Not promising for a so called queen of the industry this is terrible told y’all she was overrated her hype don’t live up to the charts only 40 top 40s that’s it 😂😂😂😂😂

      • Pat June 30, 2020

        The hive been using home coming clout for about 3 years now. The real test will be if she can still fill up stadiums n unless she has a smash hit at 40 years old. Ion c it

    • Music Pro June 30, 2020

      That old model y’all use for Billboard is outdated. If you notice, many artists that top the chart can’t even tour because they’re relatively unknowns. Every album that Beyoncé releases is Platinum and Number one. All of her tours are sold out WORLD tours in ARENAS. If you don’t like her….. say so. But don’t just sound ridiculous I’m not realizing that maybe about 3-5 artists in the world can tour at the level that she tours at with NO RADIO HIT!

        The gift sold 700 copies in the UK. 🤭

      • Karma June 30, 2020

        Girl you sitting up here being her spokesperson and she doesn’t even know you exist! What a true clown 🤡. Would you go hard for a family member like that??? 😂😂😂😂

  2. Robin June 30, 2020

    With the way people worship Beyonce, still her s*** never go no 1.

    • Dc June 30, 2020

      Agree all the Beyhive do is gas her up the receipts don’t add up to all the hype n press

    • Rave June 30, 2020

      Her album sales and YouTube video views actually don’t add up to the amount of hype either compared to most female artist in their primes…

  3. Be Smarter June 30, 2020

    Beyonce is a part of an elite list of legends like Celine Dion, Shania Twain, & Janet Jackson who don’t rely on chart success to sell out STADIUMS and arenas.

    All these pop tart artist with these #1 songs wouldn’t even sell out a venue, let alone put on a show worth my time or money. 90% of them won’t have any legacy.

    I don’t understand the fans fascination with charts. It’s been proven that it’s a bunch of manipulation and lies.

    • Clarks0o0ñ June 30, 2020

      Beyonce is in her 30’s, the other ladies u mentioned are in their 50’s.

      Charts are important.
      It measures an artist’s popularity and impact.

      • Tori June 30, 2020

        Charts are not important when an qrtist have passed chart expectations. Beyonce noticed she was flopping on the charts 10 years ago and focused her attention where she could see more acclaim, more creativity and more money: TOURING! Beyonce may not be a huge hut on the singles charts, but she definitely sells albums and is the only R&B artist, a black woman at that, thats touring stadiums with majority the old dogs that didn’t top the charts! Sre yall trying to argue or state facts? And you can kindly stop clinging to Everything Is Love, HOMECOMING and The Gift as they were not released to be main solo projects but side/special edition projects. And each album were only released as a companion to other million dollar projects so if this song fails, who gives a f***?

  4. It’s Me June 30, 2020

    Beyonce don’t need to chart again or sell out another stadium. She is a Legend. Naysayers are only left the scraps!

    All I know is Disney + will crash cause everybody and their momma will be tuning in to watch the movie. It’s the best selling single this week so it achieved its purpose of supporting black owned business……..anything else is an extra bonus.

  7. ??? June 30, 2020

    Lmaooo promising start? Lmaooo the roaches were talking s*** cuz she went #1 on iTunes, only to FLOP in at 37 lmaoooo, guess shell be cockriding city girls for her next hit like she did with megan lmfaoooooooo 😂😂😂😂😂

  8. Keith June 30, 2020

    At this point, Beyonce has done her work so chart placement is irrelevant to her continued success. Please don’t compare her to anyone that came AFTER her, as she has no younger “challenger to the throne” YET. Having said that, her HYPE has always outpaced her actual performance when it comes to music sales. She learned how to GET THOSE COINS, though…Still waiting on that Fela-inspired album.

  9. Misty Knight June 30, 2020

    Beyonce moved into legacy artist territory. She will make massive amounts of money touring for as long as she wants to tour, just like Madonna, Celine, Tina Turner (before retiring). A two decades from now, no one is paying big bucks to see Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, etc. Acting like a backdoor p*** star doesn’t endear fans in the long-run and will look pretty silly at 40 or 50 years old.

  10. Clarks0o0ñ June 30, 2020

    That’s what she gets for doing black face

    • Me June 30, 2020

      Lmaoooo what? 😂

      • Clarks0o0ñ June 30, 2020

        Gurl, the pictures are all over Twitter

        It was a photo shoot back in 2011 for a magazine.

        The way they are dragging her non stop on Twitter.

    Just a word of advice from a long time supporter of TGJ. The moderators of this site should start cracking down on the hate speech and racially offensive comments being spewed here by certain commenters. You know what climate we’re currently in. You also see whats happening to Facebook. It’s literally being boycotted as we speak. This is a Black platform. So, not a good look for you.

    Anyways, I think the message Beyonce is promoting with Black Parade is amazing and I can’t wait to see her upcoming short film 😊
