Beyoncé's 'Lion King' Songs Roar On The R&B Charts

Klaudia//August 15, 2020
Beyoncé never waits too long in between projects, and while she may not have a new album out, fans are flocking to an updated version of a 2019 release thanks to the Queen’s latest visual masterpiece...and that has led to her dominating a number of Billboard charts yet again.

This week, many of the tracks featured on the singer-songwriter’s The Lion King: The Gift album either rise or return entirely (or even debut) on over half a dozen of Billboard’s rankings. They perform best on the R&B-only lists, where she has established herself as a force to be reckoned with.

Here is a look at how the tunes featured on the deluxe edition of The Lion King: The Gift perform this week on the R&B rankings.

R&B/Hip-Hop Songs

As Megan Thee Stallion and Bey’s “Savage,” which isn’t connected to The Lion King: The Gift at all, dips to No. 6, Beyoncé’s own “Black Parade” re-enters the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs race at No. 47. The track was originally released as a standalone cut earlier this year, but now it’s been included in the deluxe edition of the singer-songwriter’s latest full-length.

Beyoncé Dominates The World Songs Chart With Her 'Lion King' Smashes

Klaudia//August 14, 2020
About two weeks ago, Beyoncé changed the game once again by releasing her new film Black Is King, which premiered exclusively on Disney+ on July 31. The artistic venture uses her 2019 album The Lion King: The Gift as both a soundtrack and inspiration for a new story, and as countless fans of the singer-songwriter rushed to watch what she’d come up with this time around, the tracks from the full-length benefit immensely on at least one Billboard chart this frame.

As the album holds the No. 1 spot on the World Albums chart (as well as the Soundtracks and Top R&B Albums charts), Beyoncé also rules this week’s World Digital Song Sales ranking with the tracks from her latest project, which all return to the roster thanks to impressive sales during the past tracking frame, with a number of tunes hitting new high points on the list.

The Queen narrowly missed landing another No. 1 from the studio effort, as “Already,” which now seems to be the focus cut from the set, bounces back onto the World Digital Song Sales list at No. 2. It comes in behind only BTS’s “My Time,” which vaults from No. 15 to the highest rung.

Bey occupies three positions inside the top five, as “My Power” and “Find Your Way Back” land at Nos. 4 and 5, respectively. Looking at the entire top 10, the superstar lays claim to half of all the available rungs in the region, as “Brown Skin Girl” and “Mood 4 Eva” settle at Nos. 7 and 10, respectively.

Of the 10 The Lion King: The Gift tracks that are present on this week’s 25-spot World Digital Song Sales chart, only three don’t credit Beyoncé as an artist, though she was involved in their inclusion on the set and their current popularity.

'The Lion King: The Gift' Returns to Top 10 on Billboard 200

Klaudia//August 10, 2020
Beyoncé’s The Lion King: The Gift album re-enters the Billboard 200 chart at No. 10, following the July 31 premiere of Black Is King on Disney+.

The set earned 27,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Aug. 6 (up 1,462%), according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The album originally debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the Aug. 3, 2019-dated chart.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new Aug. 15-dated chart (where The Lion King: The Gift re-enters at No. 10) will be posted in full on Billboard's website on Aug. 11.

Black Is King is based on the music of The Lion King: The Gift, and was written, directed and executive produced by Beyoncé. The Lion King: The Gift album also benefits from its reissue on July 31 with three additional tracks.

The Lion King: The Gift album was first released on July 19, 2019, as a companion project to last year’s film remake of The Lion King (in which Beyoncé voices the character Nala).

Beyoncé's film 'Black Is King' will air in Africa

Klaudia//July 20, 2020
Yesterday, Parkwood Entertainment and Disney+ released the new trailer and poster for Black Is King, a film by 24-time GRAMMY® Award-winner Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, which will premiere globally on July 31, 2020, streaming on Disney+.

The new film based on the music of The Lion King: The Gift, will premiere two weeks after the one-year anniversary of the theatrical release of Disney’s global phenomenon, The Lion King. The film reimagines the lessons from the 2019 blockbuster for today’s young kings and queens in search of their own crowns.

Simultaneously, a distribution deal was announced to make Black Is King available on much of the African Continent, including South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia, Namibia, Cameroon, Liberia, Burundi, Senegal, Togo, Somalia, Benin, Congo, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Gabon, Cape Verde and many more countries through MultiChoice Group’s M-Net and Canal+ Afrique.

Black Is King was in production for one year and features an impressive list of diverse voices on its creative team, including directors Emmanuel Adjei (the film Shahmaran), Blitz Bazawule (the film The Burial of Kojo), Pierre Debusschere (“Mine” and “Ghost” videos for Beyoncé), Jenn Nkiru (BLACK TO TECHNO film), Ibra Ake (creative director and producer on “This is America” video for Childish Gambino), Dikayl Rimmasch (CACHAO, UNO MAS film), Jake Nava (“Crazy in Love,” “Single Ladies,” “Partition” videos for Beyoncé) and co-director and long-time collaborator of Beyoncé, Kwasi Fordjour.

Beyoncé wins legal battle to trademark Blue Ivy’s name

Klaudia//July 17, 2020
The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) had no time for the efforts of a Massachusetts wedding planner to block Beyoncé in her quest to secure intellectual property rights. In a little-noticed ruling one week ago, Beyoncé won her ongoing trademark battle over her daughter’s name.

For years, Beyoncé has attempted to trademark her daughter’s name, Blue Ivy Carter. She’s filed applications that cover everything from books to pacifiers to shampoo to video games and much more. The problem, though, is that wedding planner Veronica Morales called her business “Blue Ivy Events” – even before Beyoncé’s daughter was born.

Morales received a trademark registration from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the mark “Blue Ivy” in 2012 (the same year the daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z was born) for her business. On that basis, Morales filed a “notice of opposition” with TTAB, arguing that Beyoncé should not be allowed to trademark “Blue Ivy Carter” because there is too much risk of confusion between the two.

Queen Bey said in documents that Morales’ “likelihood of confusion” argument was frivolous, because consumers are unlikely to confuse “a boutique wedding event planning business and Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of two of the most famous performers in the world.” She called her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, a “cultural icon.”

BeyGOOD announces The Black-Owned Small Business Impact Fund

Klaudia//July 11, 2020
BeyGOOD is a global initiative founded in 2013 to inspire people to be kind, to be charitable and to #BeyGood to themselves, to others, to the community, and to our world. BeyGOOD has partnered with programs to help people in the US, Europe, Africa, South America and the Caribbean.

Over the last couple of months, the pandemic and outpours for justice throughout the Black community and across the country has been felt in every imaginable area of our lives, including in how our local businesses continue to operate. The challenges of Black business owners navigating in the climate cannot be understated, as the effects of uprisings across the nation have led to many businesses being placed in dire straits due to damages and other small business needs.

The NAACP is delighted to administer a meaningful program in partnership with BeyGOOD’s Black-Owned Small Business Impact Fund to assist our small business communities that have been directly impacted by the recent events across the country. The grants in the amount of $10,000 will be offered to Black-owned small businesses in select cities to help sustain businesses during this time. The NAACP is proud to partner with BeyGOOD to help strengthen small businesses and to ensure economic empowerment for Black businesses.

'Savage' Surges to No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100

Klaudia//May 26, 2020
Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage," featuring Beyoncé, bounds from No. 5 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. The track, which previously reached a No. 2 high after the arrival of its Beyoncé remix, becomes Megan Thee Stallion's first Hot 100 leader and Beyoncé's seventh.

"Savage," released on 1501 Certified/300 Entertainment, is the 1,102nd No. 1 in the Hot 100's 61-year history.

Here's a deeper look at the song's Hot 100 coronation.

No. 1 in sales: "Savage" concurrently climbs 4-1 on the Digital Song Sales chart, up 55% to 30,000 downloads sold in the week ending May 21, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, good for the Hot 100's top Sales Gainer award.

The song was on sale in a variety of physical/digital combination offerings during the tracking week, including autographed CD and vinyl copies put up for purchase in Megan Thee Stallion's webstore beginning May 15. Consumers could purchase CD and vinyl singles, each with a digital download; the download would be sent to consumers upon purchase, with physical versions due to arrive at a later date.

Megan Thee Stallion earns her first Digital Song Sales No. 1, while Beyoncé adds her eighth (the eighth-best total in the chart's archives).

Beyoncé Ties No. 1 Record as 'Savage' Tops R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Chart

Klaudia//May 21, 2020
Megan Thee Stallion locks up the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart as “Savage,” featuring Beyoncé, rises from the runner-up rank on the list dated May 23. The duo takes over thanks to a 5 percent boost to 27.3 million in audience in the week ending May 17, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

With their ascent, the Houston natives return female artists to the chart summit for the first time in nearly a year. The last woman at No. 1 was Cardi B, who posted the last of 20 straight weeks in charge through “Money” (nine weeks) and then “Please Me,” (11) a collaboration with Bruno Mars, on the June 15, 2019, list.

“Savage” gives Megan Thee Stallion her first leader on the chart, after a trio of prior top five showings. Her debut hit, “Big Ole Freak,” reached No. 5 in May 2019, while two later hits both went to No. 3: “Cash S--t,” featuring DaBaby last September, and “Hot Girl Summer,” a collaboration with Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign, in November.

Beyoncé nabs her eighth visit to the penthouse to tie Alicia Keys for the most No. 1s among women since the chart began in 1993. The superstar also ends a five-year drought from the summit, having last topped R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay with “7/11” in February 2015. Between the two chart champs, Bey logged eight other entries, with six entering the top 10. Lemonade single “Sorry” was the most successful, climbing to No. 3 in July 2016.

Here’s a full count of Beyoncé’s eight leaders:
