Predictions Are In: Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance’ To Blaze Billboard 200 As First Female #1 Debut of 2022

Published: Saturday 30th Jul 2022 by Rashad

As the masses continue to release their wiggles to the sounds of Beyoncé‘s seventh studio album, the July 29-released ‘Renaissance,’ industry analysts have turned their attention to the commercial performance of the set.

And if early reports are anything to judge by, Bey may do some wiggling herself when she finds out the numbers expected to be attached to the LP’s first-week sales.

Details inside:


Predicted First-Week Sales Overall:  275k-315k

Predicted First-Week (Pure) Sales:  125k-155k

Predicted Billboard 200 Placement :  #1


Based on handsome streams (to the tune of over 170 million U.S.-based spins) and early digital download reports, Bey’s latest studio effort is on course to sell over 300k by the end of its first tracking week.

If the prediction above rings true, it will come with a number of history-making feats attached but none larger than the singer becoming the only act in history see her first seven studio albums debut at #1 on the Billboard 200.  What’s more, it will become the first album by a female to debut at #1 on this year’s Billboard 200.

Despite being plagued by an early leak, the predicted sales represent an impressive consistency for an artist who is 20 years into her solo career.  Look below to see how the ‘Break My Soul’-led opus could stack up against its predecessors.

Beyonce’s First-Week Sales

(studio albums)

‘Dangerously In Love’ (2003) – 317,000 sold

    thats very low for all the hype

    • What Would Whitney do July 30, 2022

      Yonce still has not broke Mary Blige highest one week sales after all this time.

      With sales of 750,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, Mary J. Blige’s “The Breakthrough” (Geffen) emerges as the No. 1 ….yonce can’t sell 750,000 first week sales like Mary .

      • July 30, 2022

        Exactly and Mary stayed true to R&B music we don’t talk about that enough it’s like it’s all about Bey put some respect on Mary damn right 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

      • Diabetes UNBOTHERED July 30, 2022

        Self Titled sold 600k first 3 days, 900k first week, and 1,000,000 in first 10 days thus turning Tuesday into Friday. 😂

      • Lewey July 30, 2022

        Actually she already did. Her self titled was based off 3 days of sales, not a week.

      • Kelly July 31, 2022

        That MJB album is nearly 20 years old, and came out during a period where people bought CDs rather than streamed.

      • Contact July 31, 2022

        Your argument doesn’t help Beyonce because it’s saying people weren’t purchasing her album lmaoooo

  2. Pat July 30, 2022

    Chi. I waited til the numbers came in to have an opinion cause it was predictable. No way she was doing 500k. That article was put out to take the heat off bms underperforming which is the same reason we didn’t get a video. So we couldn’t track numbers. Still a decent debut but not worthy of the hype at all

    • beehive killer July 30, 2022

      well said

    • Nokeywords July 30, 2022

      All of you can go somewhere and choke. Mary might have sold that bullish!t album but people don’t go up for her like that. She’s just off the chittlin circuit if we’re being honest. Call me when Mary has a stadium tour all on her own.

      • Dc July 30, 2022

        Mary can still sell out 20,000 seat arena and is very much past the chitlin circuite Apple Music just booked her for an Apple Music special concert streaming now and she made millions 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

      • Nessa July 30, 2022

        Did you just associate Queen Mary J blige with the chitlin circuit? Ikyfl. Not even Beyonce would agree with the BS you just typed. 😂

        30 years in the game. Still booked. Still relevant. Still charting. Successful movies. Several Grammys. Oscar nominations. 8 multiplatinum albums. 3 Gold albums (including a Christmas album). Endless sold out arena tours and headlining festivals.

        QUEEN s***. Sit down somewhere little boy.

      • Dc July 30, 2022

        Mary has her own festival call me when Beyoncé can say that sold out Atlanta 3 days and is now a yearly thing and Mary don’t have to have a stage of 20 dancers and release 15 videos off 1 album to sell records and still beat Beyoncé best first week sales twice

      • Dc July 30, 2022

        8 multiplatinum albums 11 platinum 3 gold Mary j Blige is not chitlin circuit fyi and still making 400,000 per episode on power and let me know when bey get an Oscar nomination for acting we know Beyoncé can’t act 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • FAF July 30, 2022

        Mary j blige was on her
        7 album selling 700k baby

        Chitlin circuit > f@880t music

  3. Alex July 30, 2022

    Only? Decent but that’s half of lemonade

  4. Dc July 30, 2022

    That’s it what happened to 600,000 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 y’all was bragging on all those pre orders i can’t 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  5. Live love laugh July 30, 2022

    Lmfao wait didn’t the beehive say she was gonna do 600k. Not even she’s not on Adele’s level.

    • Dc July 30, 2022

      Exactly bragging on those SOLD out pre orders 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  6. Dc July 30, 2022

    Y’all wanna clown Mary j Blige specifically Marylin and Mary sold 730,000 first week with The Breakthrough and 691,000 first week with Growing Pains and didn’t need to sell out to pop or make 15 videos from 1 album told y’all Beyoncé overrated af Mary beat all her album first week sales twice 👍🏽👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

    • What Would Whitney do July 30, 2022

      With sales of 750,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, Mary J. Blige’s “The Breakthrough” (Geffen) emerges as the No. 1

      • #TheTruth July 30, 2022

        That was released at a different time (17 years ago) and during Christmas time where album sales can be higher.

        Some of Beyoncé’s first week sales where not even a full week and she actually sold 900K or a million in 7 days with the eponym album.

        Now look in terms of achievements, chart history etc. Beyoncé has achieved way more in less time compared to MJB.

        There’s no point in comparing Bee to Mary or whoever else, they all are great. That is stupid, it sounds like teenage fanbases fighting online.

    • Wwwd July 30, 2022

      Mary Blige. Vz Mariah

      Beyonce vz Chris brown

      No Beyonce can’t compare to Mary if she cannot answer her first week sales even naked

      • Kelly July 31, 2022

        That’s not a fair comparison – why don’t you compare the sales of Mary’s most RECENT album?

  7. Theman July 30, 2022

    With her hype, media coverage and superstardom she should be selling around 450-500k at least. These numbers are good enough. But they should be bigger.

    • Barney July 30, 2022

      These numbers and her streaming and sales overall really show that Beyonce’s music doesn’t connect with the general public. She has celebs and major social media accounts promoting her album and it hasn’t broken any records.

      Beyonce has always been way too hyped for the sales and streams she has. Her marketing has always been top notch.

  8. Swann July 30, 2022

    I thought she was gonna sell 500-600k? According to Diabetes Fatass she was gonna do 1.3m first week lol.

    • Dc July 30, 2022

      She actually said Beyoncé would go Diamond in 1 week 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • Swann July 30, 2022

        Lmaooo I’m shocked that these numbers are so low. I just knew she was gonna crack 500k at minimum

  9. Bam July 30, 2022

    I mean I’m not sure if she cares about album sales like that so much as she doesn’t outright flop but those numbers aren’t great for a artist at her level. Hope she’s not on the post 40 decline that happens to a lot of artist.

  10. Dabul July 30, 2022

    I kept quiet but Beyonces star power isn’t as big as it once was. Just look at how people are speaking out against her all of a sudden. Before you couldn’t say a word about the Carters. She doesn’t have the attention of Gen Z. They couldn’t care less about her. Contrary to popular belief their little streams matter when it comes to sales these days. Artists who’ve been around for as long as Beyonce would kill for these numbers but someone of her stature should be selling more than this considering all the hype. For her sake I hope she debuts on the higher end of the predictions. For her ego.

    • XYZ July 30, 2022

      It wouldnt be that bad if she gets humbled a bit, tbh.

    • Tullylah July 30, 2022

      Her star power is manufactured.
      After 2009 all her albums had big first weeks then dropped off, a few solo hits. Ppl think she’s bigger than she is because of PR, you’d think she’d have MJ numbers the way they go on about her but she doesn’t and she isn’t even close. Rihanna, Taylor and Adele are though and they don’t manufacture a bigger than they are image the numbers say they’re big already. Her fans need to be humbled tbh

      • FAF July 30, 2022

        Her fans argue with everyone who doesn’t like her music they’re very delusional how you have the former First Lady posting reels and s*** and still don’t sell 200k

  11. Kandi Buruss July 30, 2022

    And the Hive made fun of Honestly Neverminds 205k first week sales like it wasn’t announced 24 hours prior to its release. Renaissance was announced a month in advance with a lead single and is only selling about 100k more. This is an underperformance no matter how y’all try to dice it. Perhaps if Beyonce released a video it would garnered more interest?????

  12. Verde July 30, 2022

    KELIS’ POWER😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  13. What Would Whitney do July 30, 2022

    Turn it up!)
    Now you know who’s really the queen, deliver the mail
    730,000 first week of my sales
    The haters plot and they watch looking all pale
    While I’m on a yacht overseas doing my nails
    (Get low Mary!

    • Dc July 30, 2022

      Yassssss Mary told them h o e s 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • Josh July 30, 2022

      Mary couldn’t deliver a straight note without straining or cracking. Y’all went and dug up Mary’s old sales in effort to do what?

      • FLOPAISSANCE July 30, 2022


      • Wwwd July 30, 2022

        TGJ DUG UP OLD SALES. By posting old Beyonce.
        Nobody forgot Mary was 750,000 first week

  14. Montana July 30, 2022

    At least she’ll now have 7 studio albums that debuted at Number 1

    • Montana July 30, 2022

      Correction: These are all solo albums BTW

  15. Nessa July 30, 2022

    Not bad. Impressive for someone whose been around that long. Let’s be honest: none of her peers are seeing these numbers. They ain’t seeing the charts period these days. I do understand the disappointment since She was predicted to sell much more…….. .

    • Nessa July 30, 2022

      And by her peers I mean the girls who came up in the industry with her. The Monica’s, Brandy’s, Andries, Ashanti’s, the KeKe Wyatts and Alicia Keys….

      • FAF July 30, 2022

        So now you comparing keke Wyatt to Beyoncé. Who hadn’t been signed to a major label in 20 years ??? 💀💀💀💀

  16. Diabetes UNBOTHERED July 30, 2022

    I can’t believe y’all let the Queen Flop like a Dehydrated Whale 🐋 I’m so disappointed in the Hive 🐝 for Streaming instead of buying the Physical.

    Tho its THE QUEENs first time without a Visual I was still expecting Renaissance would sell 1,000,000 on the First Day. Now its lucky to sell that period.

    This is THE QUEENS OFF THE WALL Album mixed with the Musical Thematic & Vocal Innovations of SURVIVOR with the expression versatility of SELF TITLED.

    On review aggregator Metacritic, Renaissance received a score of 88 out of 100 based on eight reviews, indicating “universal acclaim

    Only songs I’m not feeling are THIQUE & PURE/HONEY. There are about 3 others I find to be Lukewarm but the better 10 songs are innovative Bangers especially Cuff it, Church & Plastic. 8/10

    (Drake Flopped too but that was a Given, I still haven’t finished listening to it because it was Terrible 1 out of 5.) 😂

    • Dc July 30, 2022

      Didn’t you say she’d go diamond in 1 week with this album 😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • Nessa July 30, 2022

      Chill out fatso. The people who wanted to hear the album did. These are still solid numbers.

    • QueenBEY July 30, 2022

      You are the FAT B**** that said she was going diamond the FIRST WEEK. Don’t back paddle b**** roll the boat gently down the mf stream h**

  17. Danny Bey July 30, 2022

    This doesn’t include pre-orders, vinyls, and the leak was also a factor.

    Y’all jump at any chance to try to knock Beyoncé riff her pedestal. Her crown isn’t moving whether she sells 600k or 6k.

    • Danny Bey July 30, 2022


    • Dc July 30, 2022

      Shut up it flopped but go ahead and try to justify it y’all are delusional

    • Dc July 30, 2022

      It leaked like 1 day before it came out but yea the leaks are the reason 😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 delusional

    • FLOPAISSANCE July 30, 2022

      LOL save the excuses roach, these flop numbers include the pre-orders, vinyls, fake streams, everything. Issa FLOP sis, she gonna be opening for lizzo soon LMAOOOO 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • Messy Bardi Gangsta July 30, 2022

      Exactly!!! These peasants want Bey to fail soooooo bad it’s pathetic. These numbers don’t include the pre-orders and vinyls sales. And for the clowns bragging about MJB’S ‘Breakthrough’ & ‘Growing Pains’ sales, y’all only hopping on that to try to shade Beyonce, acting like y’all are stans for Mary when y’all ain’t even by the music. Y’all hype anybody just to not give bey her due credit smh. It’s giving ‘mad-girls-link-up’. Say whatever Y’all want but one thing y’all can’t say is that she’s a flop or that your fav is doing better. Lmao

      • FLOPAISSANCE July 30, 2022

        LOL keep dreaming roach, these FLOP numbers include the pre-orders, vinyls, fake streams, EVERYTHING LMAOOO 🤣🤣🤣

    • Josh July 30, 2022

      Nah. It’s always been to humble y’all stans. Stan wars have made it very difficult for the artist.

      • Danny Bey July 31, 2022

        You can’t humble us who dgaf what you broke heaux say on these keyboards. We gon brag regardless and y’all gon wake up everyday pressed and thinking about Beyoncé and her fans do. That’s the gag.

  19. Javi July 30, 2022

    Maybe a tour announcement will help these numbers get higher ?

    • Translucent horse July 30, 2022

      Beyonce needs visuals!! I don’t know what her plan is for the BMS video and any others she prolly filmed but she needs to drop them like tomorrow! The era has been sloppy so far. Dropping music and disappearing ain’t it no more!!!

  20. FLOPAISSANCE July 30, 2022




    • Diabetes UNBOTHERED July 30, 2022

      I would not get too cozy. Didn’t rihanna in her 20s (#PRIME) Biggest first week sell 200k????

      And speaking of Cozy…

      Do you like “all up in your head”? Or Maybe another song? Certainly you must like at least ONE song on Renaissance. You are a STAN afterall 😂 Id be extremely surprised if you haven’t even listened to it. 😂

      I’m sure it left you eager to her ACT 2 & ACT 3. 😂

      • FLOPAISSANCE July 30, 2022


  21. Balenciaga July 30, 2022

    Well The Hive is an aging fanbase. They have bigger responsibilities than stanning for Beyonce these days. But one thing they WILL do is purchase tour tickets. Personally I’m a former stan, now a casual fan. Listened to Renaissance and wasn’t that impressed. I stick with Beyonces old s***. Now where are those tour dates sis????????????????????????????

  24. Gworl Bye July 30, 2022

    The hype definitely does not add up to 125-155k pure sales. And 125-155 verses the 653k of herlast album is not consistent, that’s quite the decline. And if she plans to release 2 or 3 acts, those aren’t gonna sell any more than this one.

  25. Pete July 30, 2022

    I just read that doesn’t include sales from the deluxe or the vinyls so the numbers should ride up by next week so you haters can stfu

    • FLOPAISSANCE July 30, 2022

        Flopaissance is the lamest sht I’ve ever heard 🤣 not even clever. How is a #1 album on billboard a Flop. Ur mad boo. Ur fav can’t pull this off. I’m sure ur a farti gang member 🤧 Beyoncé now has 8 #1 albums and another soon to be #1 solo single under her belt. Ya mad 🤣 but you will deal with it. Kisses 😘

      • FLOPAISSANCE July 31, 2022

        LOL delusional roach, FLOPAISSANCE is her seventh album, how tf does she have 8 number one albums??? Lmaoooo you roaches forever lying AND you can’t count just like y’all said FLOPAISSANCE would sell 600K lmaoooo 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  26. Kenneth July 30, 2022

    This is good considering the rules have changed. There are no more bundles. Not everyone sells over 250k unless you’re Drake, Adele or Taylor. Not bad although I expected 400k upward 500k

    • UHoesFunny July 31, 2022

      Thank you 😊 it’s a whole #1 album on Billboard. Like wut. Bey haters will say anything to make this girl seem lesser lol. Too bad they have to deal with her for the rest of the year 🤣🤣🤣 it’s only been a weekend of act 1. She’s just getting started 😮‍💨🐝🐝🐝

  27. Diabetes UNBOTHERED July 30, 2022

    Yes Act 1 Flopped but Act 2 and Act 3 will outsell 30. {Act 1 is just a Prelude.}

    • UHoesFunny July 31, 2022

      Act 1 didn’t flop just shut up girl. You act like ur a music exec 🤣 you have zero taste in what good music is. This album is actually impeccable. Risky for her at this time in her career, and she still pulled it off. And got a #1 album and a top 10 single, soon to be number 1. How is that a flop. Ur an idiot babe 🤧

      • FLOPAISSANCE July 31, 2022

    • Diabetes UNBOTHERED July 30, 2022

      EXACTLY… Its final debut numbers are around 500k and Act 1 will outsell 30 Folklore & Chromatica Combined when all 16 videos drop next week.

        Like I don’t get it. Their favs aren’t selling anything close to this. Meanwhile, Beyonce 20 years into her solo career is still pulling big numbers. They hate to see it.

    • Dc July 30, 2022

      Y’all said it would be top 5 also by now
      and now it’s going number 1 ok and last week album was gonna sell 600,000 right 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • UHoesFunny July 31, 2022

        Gurl Cardi B is OVER 💀😂😂😂😂

        Atlantic scrapped her entire sophomore album becuz HOT DOO DOO flopped so bad. Especially with two top features and a music video. Oof! 😮‍💨

        She’s no longer the label fav. It’s LIZZO 😘

        Cardi has had a HORRIBLE year and now that Beyoncé is back, she’s really scared and has no clue where to go next.

  29. Debb July 30, 2022

    Damn that’s a huge drop from the 500-600k that they predicted a few weeks ago….

    Big drop from lemonade. That’s suspicious 🤨

  32. Jason July 30, 2022

    Hmm… where are the music videos?

    • Sherry July 30, 2022

      My guess is Bey wants the focus to be on the music this time around. That’s really the only logical explanation IMO…….

      • UHoesFunny July 31, 2022

        I have to agree, but possibly act ii

  33. Anonymous July 30, 2022

    So lemonade doing an album solely for the lgbt community DIDNT get her superstar numbers like other artist, this is hilarious.

    Now can we stop pretending like lgbt is her core fanbase

    • Diabetes UNBOTHERED July 30, 2022

      Beyonce core fan base is actually everyday ordinary white ppl and random Hispanic people from what i always see in the audience especially the I AM TOUR DVD where Young Honkie Girls were passing out fainting left right and center like as if she was MJ. he audience is Extremely Random, charlamane Tha God is even a fan, he bought Solange 2nd album.

  34. James July 30, 2022

    Chromatica sold 274k, but was that with or without bundles?

  35. Jeans July 30, 2022

    Notice TGJ said “first seven studio albums” to debut at #1. They better change that to “solo albums” cuz “ Everything is Love” debuted at #2 and that was a studio album. Albeit under the carters monicker, but still her album.

    • XTINA July 31, 2022

      Did you read? That wasn’t a solo album dumbass

  36. XTINA July 30, 2022


  37. True Tea July 30, 2022

    Not a Beyonce stan but these numbers are solid considering she’s been in the Industry since ’98, she’s a 40 yr old POP star and the album is completely experiential. Now if Cardi doesn’t do these numbers, she’s DONE.

    Cardi is still in her prime, she’s at the height of her career.

    • Judee July 30, 2022

      Cardi a flop. She doing 150k tops

  38. Quincy Evans Farrior July 31, 2022

    And this is just part 1😛🖕💯

  39. Larry July 31, 2022

    I cant stand the BeyHive. She’s great but her stans act like she’s Jesus. groundbreaking this, groundbreaking that. well its not.

    Its odd how she hasn’t released any visuals yet? Maybe Act 2 will be a visual album.

    • TonyToka July 31, 2022

      That Part☝️….I do like Beyonce but the BeeHive makes me not a lot of times I’ve always said she thinks she’s God a Lotta times and she isn’t humble to me at all.

  40. UHoesFunny July 31, 2022

    not cardi and camicky fans in the comments trying to convince themselves that this isn’t a win for queen b 🐝🤣🤣🤣🤣

    read it again btch. first female #1 album in 2022. she has a top 10 solo record, 25 years into her music career at the age of 40. which soon will hit #1 😮‍💨😂😂😂😂

    then watch how y’all try to twist and turn that into a flop lmfaoooo.

    cardi b is DONE. her last few singles ALL FLOPPED. Atlantic SCRAPPED her entire sophomore album. back to the drawing board lmfaoooo. and for horse face camilo, FAMILIA came FLOPPED and WENT BYE BYE 🫢🤣🤣🤣

    act 1 already #1 on billboard and everywhere in over 50 countries. you broke ugly btches hate it and can’t relate lol 😂

    wait until she finally releases the visuals to this impeccable album. omfg!!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥

    my favs are:
    virgo’s groove
    alien superstar
    plastic off the sofa
    all up in your mind
    america has a problem
    break my soul

        U sound so dumb. I’m gonna let you talk. You clearly don’t have any friends and just wanna play online 😂 children. So stupid. I can tell in the way you type that your iQ level is at an all time LOW and ur PH balance is off 🥴 turn on the fan, it’s hot in that bedroom closet ur in bad. Lol RENAISSANCE #1 on BILLBOARD 🐝🐝🐝🐝

    • Dc July 31, 2022

      Cardi Last single was up hit number 1 this one number 13 that’s the only songs she released as her singles in last 2 years try again taking bout all her recent singles flopped try again

  41. Rock July 31, 2022

    I tried to like this album…
    But I couldn’t
    And apparently I’m not the only one
    Dear beyonce,you don’t have ears for good music.Let those who know the deal do it for you.You should be able to afford that.
    I like experiments but this is chaotic, and quite painful to the ears.
    I expect this prediction to be reviewed downwards by tomorrow
    Harmonies were thrown in all over the place making it hard to find the melody.
    And I really like beyomce
    This has to flop so hard so that she can be humbled and stop trying to do so much
    It’s music not a book
    Its either in or its out.

    • UHoesFunny July 31, 2022

      But it won’t flop babe. It’s already set in stone. It’s a global hit and a #1 record on Billboard. You will just have to deal with it babe 🐝🐝🐝

  42. Fruitvale July 31, 2022

    That’s HALF of what her last album did. Don’t try to act like this is some extremely high number lol

    • XTINA July 31, 2022

      It’s been 6 years since her last release. SIX. The longest gap in her career.

      • Gworl Bye July 31, 2022

        So what. She should still be selling more than Taylor Swift, and she’s not.

  43. PuertoRickan July 31, 2022

    Still slaying 25 years into her career!! Bling bling b****** is MADDD!! 💎

  44. XTINA July 31, 2022

    For a 6 year gap these sales are commendable and the record is crazy!!

  45. Morgan Lassiter July 31, 2022

    Wait, with all the hype I thought she would sell a million in the first week. I will never forget when Janet Jackson’s Discipline was released and it was #1 on billboards Beyoncé fans were laughing calling it a flop because it sold around 150,000 the first week. I told them then to be careful because their artist could one day sell less. Discipline was released during a slow buying period or somewhere they were saying but Beyoncé fans were the main ones laughing and calling Janet’s album a flop.

    • UHoesFunny July 31, 2022

      LOL no one said it would sell 1 millions copies 😂 the only person said this was Diabetes and y’all dumb asses believed him. 100k is absolutely commendable. It’s literally a #1 album on Billboard 200. No one can take that away 🤣 y’all hate it. So will try to chop and screw this as a loss. She’s winning boo 😘 your faves who just started and at their prime can’t even see these numbers. Good bye ✌🏽 Renaissance is a CLASSIC!

  46. Morgan Lassiter July 31, 2022

    I remember Beyoncé’s fans laughing calling Janet a flop when Discipline was released and I remember telling them to be careful because one day their favorite artist will release a low selling album. I am proud of Beyoncé for trying something different but her fans makes it difficult for anyone to enjoy her music.

  47. JustDealWitItBabySheBack August 1, 2022

    This album SLAPSSSSSSS!!!!!!! Hands down her best album EVER and I never thought that could happen!!!

    • Paula August 1, 2022

      IMO it is not her best album, I think Lemonade or Bday or maybe Sasha fierce is. I think Renaissance will be her lowest selling album.

  48. SaanaNoire August 1, 2022

    I do not care how many albums Beyonce sells with Renaissance, nor do i care about videos…This project is not a Bop…I know ppl do not want to admit it, but this album is not completely trash, but it’s just not good coming from Beyonce….It sounds forced like she is trying to make timeless music, or standout music, but this entire album has been done before and IMO other artist have done it better.
