Beyonce whipped fans into a frenzy with the midnight release of new song ‘Black Parade.’

An unapologetic celebration of Blackness, the track’s arrival was timed to coincide with Juneteenth – the annual day to commemorate emancipation from slavery. It also lands amidst the global debate about racial inequality following the death of unarmed Black man George Floyd.

Upon the song’s unleashing, Queen Bey confirmed that proceeds will benefit various small Black businesses by way of her BeyGOOD foundation.

Fans are reacting positively too.

Though its arrival was rumored for weeks, Britney Spears sent fans into a frenzy Thursday (May 28) when she formally announced that she would release ‘Mood Ring (By Demand),’ to global streaming services – a bonus track from her 2016 album, ‘Glory.’

Not even 12 hours after its official release, Katy Perry‘s new song – ‘Daisies’ – has reached the summit of real-time iTunes sales chart.

A warm welcome for The Monster & Strangerz-produced cut (which was picked to be the official lead single from her yet-titled fifth studio album), the status on iTunes USA mirrors the song’s international success as it – as of time reported – has topped the same tally of over 20 countries worldwide including France, Greece, Brazil, United Kingdom, and more.

Hot on the promo trail this week in its support, the diva’s latest stop was accompanied by the unveiling of ‘Daisies’ first live performance.  Look inside to see how she fared at Amazon Live!

iTunes sent the fan bases of some of Pop music’s most revered divas into battle mode last week when it announced a flash $4.99 sale of prized entries from their respective discographies.

After jaws dropped once reports surfaced Mariah Carey‘s 2008 album, ‘E=MC2,’ topped the real-time iTunes chart, fans of Janet Jackson and Madonna rushed to buy their albums as well, which resulted in their respective ‘Control’ and ‘Bedtime Stories’ sets soaring on the tally as well (as we reported here).

As fans wait with bated breath to learn where the new sales activity will land the projects on next week’s Billboard 200, the publication delivered a report to indicate it’s quite unlikely such will occur – especially given the absence of a streaming boost to assist.

Though listed among Britney Spears‘ most critically acclaimed projects, her 9th LP – 2016’s ‘Glory’ – is her worst selling and only studio album to date to lack a certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
