    First of all, Spirit is very out of place! Secondly, there’s a reason CYFTLT was originally done during nighttime. Thirdly, those Heyenas and Zazu were terrible!

    People didn’t go see The Lion Kng because of Beyonce. Keep writing these PR fluff pieces. It doesn’t take away the fact that Beyonces’ album flopped.

  7. I hate bllccck n whyyyte July 30, 2019

    first of all shout out to Boyz II men Nate, Mike Shawn and Wayne……… Mariah Carey has never brought them back up on stage
    20 years.

    You did not write one Sweet day Philadelphia artist wrote that song.
    that has he don’t bring them back on stage they gave her the biggest f****** hit of her career ……. She’s a selfish b**** like…….

  8. Clarkson July 30, 2019

    If beyonce is such a draw,
    why is spirit out of the billboard hot 100 after only 1 week.
    Why didnt the gift hit number 1.
    Why did the gift sell 900 copies in the UK

    Pls we need answers

    • Lanafan1 July 30, 2019

      No one cares about the UK. This is the US!

      • SMH July 30, 2019

        Ok, why did it tank so hard in the US?

  9. Jasmine The Real Princess July 30, 2019

    Please scratch out Beyoncé from the top tier names. Someone only selling 11k of an album is not a top tier name.

  10. Jay Jay July 30, 2019

    Beyoncé has nothing to do with this. The role could have been casted to Azealia Banks and still would perform the same.

    Beyoncé’s was attached to The carters album, her live album and this movies soundtrack and all didn’t do well.

  11. ??? July 30, 2019

    lmaooooo and how about Spirit dying out of the hot 100, and her tryhard lion king album flopping out of the top 50? where’s THAT post? lmfaooooo #949yonce #TeamRoachIsInDamageControlOverdrive 😂😂😂😂

  15. DIABETES UNBOTHERED July 30, 2019

    Confession: earlier today I laughed hard as hell reading ALL the Credits to THE LION KING: THE GIFT Album. Lol Bey has Writing producer and engineering Credit on EVERY single Track… Even on all the Intros lifted from the film. Bey gave HERSELF credit just for putting them on the album 😂

    I do belive bey wrote the Naomi cambel and Kelly Rowland part in Brown skinned girls but that’s probably the bulk of it. As heavy as bey claims her pensmenship is on Survivor and as much as she claims to have written the song DIL bey only has ONE song on her entire discography where she is the SOLE writer and that was a 14 second Spoken word intro on the DIL Album. Even her worse song ever RING OFF from self titled bey is listed among several other writers

  16. DIABETES UNBOTHERED July 30, 2019

    “Ring Off” was written by Beyoncé, Mike Caren, William Lobban-Bean, Geoff Early, Charles Hinshaw, Adam Amezaga, Dixie, Stephen Bishop, Chauncey Hollis, Mike Dean, and Sidney Swift. Lol

    I think There’s also a song on the Gift with even more writers.

    But If bey can take these Credits then she can also take credit for the Success of The Lion King. Hopefully it reaches $2 billion becoming the 3rd film to do so. Bey is DA highest paid black actress ever Grossing $2 billion In film… More than halle Berry with far more movies

    • Why Tho…. July 30, 2019

      Stfu fatso! It’s definitely not because of acting ability and just star power. And dream on lumberjack if you think it will make 2 billion. And why are you concerned on what it makes anyway? You’re not getting biscuit and gravy if it does or not. Spend less time clinging to Beyoncé’s 🥜 and more time on the elliptical machine you big a$$ 🐳!!!

  17. Why Tho…. July 30, 2019

    Dang, out of the Top 20 after 1 week. How embarrassing.

      THE GIFT still has a chance of going Platinum by the end of 2019 and back to the Top 5 also cuz My Power, OTHERSIDE, Brown skinned girls, mood 4eva, Dont jealous me and Keys to the Kingdom are all #1 Hits waiting to happen.

  18. Tyler (We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill) July 30, 2019

    Beyonce cut a deal with Disney. So she can make movies through them now. She’s about to make so much money

  19. BOW DOWN TO THE BEYONCE KING PEASANTS July 30, 2019

    Beyonce please throw the peasants some bread! LOL

  20. D Block July 31, 2019

    Beyonce haters are stupid people!
    949yonce lol- clearly u need to check her real “album” sales. Vs soundtracks and other compilation projects etc. Second, if yall so stupid to continue to dispute that alot of the success was due to beyonce shows how stupid u are. Disney reps came out and said the bulk of the success was due to her involvement! Get a life! If you dont like her, dont comment on or about her or your a fan.. Period. Kudos Bey(&Disney)! Only took 11 Days to cross the 1 billion dollars made mark! Can your favs say the same? Worry about that flop!

  21. BeyluvsXtina July 31, 2019

    Congrats Beyonce!!!!
    We need a new album from you
    I watched your Formation tour front seat👍👍👍🐝🐝🐝🐝
