Beyonce Draws 104 Million to Super Bowl Halftime

Klaudia//February 5, 2013
The half-hour that included Beyonce’s performance at Super Bowl XLVII was one of the most watched segments of the NFL championship on Sunday, hitting an average of about 104 million viewers, Billboard estimates, based on Nielsen data.

Nielsen estimated 108.41 million viewers tuned in for the Super Bowl, making it the third-most-watched program in television history behind Super Bowl XLVI and Super Bowl XLV. Nielsen, heeding CBS’s request, is not counting the 34-minute power outage delay in its ratings.

The halftime show began shortly before 8:10 p.m. ET and between 8 and 8:30, the show did a 48.2 rating, according to Nielsen’s metered market ratings. Based on Nielsen’s math of a little more than two viewers per television set, the viewership is in the 104 million ballpark. It is highly likely that when final numbers are released, Beyonce’s total will be lower than the 104 million estimate.

The block with Beyonce’s 14-minute performance outperformed the previous half-hour by three-tenths of a rating point. The Baltimore Ravens-San Francisco 49ers game peaked, audience-wise, between 10:30 and 10:47 p.m. when an average of 113.982 million viewers were watching.

The audience for Beyonce trailed Madonna’s performance at last year’s Super Bowl. Madge attracted 112.5 million viewers, surpassing the 95.7 million who watched Bruce Springsteen in 2009.

Beyonce’s performance was a showcase to promote her upcoming tour that will start with a June 28 concert at L.A.’s Staples center. Her show will be the kickoff of a three-day BET Experience at L.A. Live that will include music and comedy concerts, film screenings, “106 & Park” tapings, BET Fan Fest, seminars, a Grammy Museum exhibit and other events.

Beyonce, Destiny's Child Feel Super Bowl Sales Surge

Klaudia//February 5, 2013
Beyonce's Super Bowl halftime show has predictably sent sales of her music skyrocketing.

The diva headlined the Super Bowl XLVII halftime festivities in New Orleans last night (Feb. 3), where she performed eight songs and reunited with Destiny's Child.

Industry sources suggest that in the week ending Feb. 3, Beyonce's digital album sales jumped by over 230%. Meanwhile, those of her group Destiny's Child soared by more than 600%. That latter increase is inordinately large as it includes sales of the trio's brand new "Love Songs" compilation, released last Tuesday. The set features one new recording, "Nuclear."

The album sales gains are also aided by discount pricing in both the iTunes and Amazon MP3 stores. The former discounted key earlier titles from Beyonce and Destiny's Child to $7.99 while the latter marked them down to between $5 and $7.99.

In terms of digital song sales, Beyonce's grew by an estimated 85% while Destiny Child's rose by over 300%.

Beyonce's biggest selling song of the week was "Halo," which closed her eight-song halftime set. The biggest Destiny's Child song of the week, according to early data, looks to be "Say My Name" (which was not part of the halftime medley). Two Destiny's Child tunes were performed at the Super Bowl: "Bootylicious" and "Independent Women (Part 1)."

The week's official Nielsen SoundScan sales figures for Beyonce and Destiny's Child will be released on Wednesday (Feb. 6). Further impact from the halftime show will be felt next week, after a full seven days' worth of sales are registered post-game.

Beyonce Tops Best of 2012 R&B Songs Chart

Klaudia//December 20, 2012
Beyonce and Usher have two of this year's most popular R&B/Hip Hop Songs according to Billboard.

The trusted publication released a Best of 2012 tally recently, showcasing this year's most popular and successful songs, albums and artists.

Beyonce tops the R&B/Hip Hop Songs Best of 2012 chart with "Love On Top." The song claimed no.1 on the chart for several weeks and was one of her best performing songs from the 2011 effort "4."

Usher follows at no.2 on the tally with "Climax." Also a chart-topping single, "Climax" led his album "Looking 4 Myself" and spent at least thirty-three weeks on the chart.

"Lotus Flower Bomb," "The Motto" and "Mercy" round out the top five, tracks from Wale (ft. Miguel), Drake (ft. Lil Wayne) and Kanye West (ft. Big Sean, Pusha T, 2 Chainz).

The year end "Best Of" chart is "ranked by radio airplay audience impressions as measured by Nielsen BDS and sales data as compiled by Nielsen Soundscan" according to Billboard.

Miguel ("Adorn"), Trey Songz ("Heart Attack"), 2 Chainz ("No Lie"), Chris Brown ("Strip"), and Drake ("Make Me Proud") close out the top 10 respectively.

Forbes Most talked about women of 2012

Klaudia//December 16, 2012
No. 6 Beyonce: 10,954 headlines

In Beyonce’s 2011 anthem, “Girls (Who Run The World),” she champions women who are “strong enough to bear the children, then get back to business.” And in 2012, she did just that. After giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter (with rapper Jay Z) in January, Knowles hit the stage in May for a sold-out four night performance she dubbed “Back to Business.” She still earned big in an off-year, cashing in on old hits and new album 4, which went platinum in the U.S., as well as non-musical ventures like her House of Dereon clothing line and endorsement deals. One of the best-selling musicians of all time (she’s earned 16 Grammy awards), Knowles has become a role model for women of all ages. She famously teamed up with the Obama reelection campaign in 2012, hosting star-studded fundraising events and writing letters of support. 2013 looks promising for the star: she signed a massive endorsement deal with Pepsi in December, is directing an HBO documentary that will air in February and is expected to release an album.

Klaudia//October 27, 2012
As this year's NFL season nears its halfway mark, Beyonce announces her own 'Countdown to Touchdown.' During the charting week, the pop star announced via her website that she'll be performing the halftime show at Super Bowl XLVII, spurring a jump in her Social 50 ranking.

'Dance For You' Hits Top 10 on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs

Klaudia//September 22, 2012
Beyoncé's album "4" nabs its fourth top 10 hit single on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart this week as "Dance For You" sashays 13-10.

It marks the third time Bey' has claimed a quartet of top 10s from a single album. Her debut set "Dangerously In Love" and its follow-up, "B'Day," both notched four top 10s.

"Dance For You" also gives Beyoncé her 19th top 10 as a soloist, extending her lead for the most top 10s among female artists since 2000. Alicia Keys is a distant second with 14 top 10s in that time span, though she seems close to earning her 15th in the coming weeks.

More impressively, on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop airplay chart (viewable on, "Dance For You" marks her fifth top 10 -- the first time she's claimed five top 10s on that tally from one album.

The World's 100 Most Powerful Women 2012

Klaudia//August 22, 2012
For nine years FORBES has ranked the 100 most powerful women in the world. These are the women who adhere to the traditional classifications of power (political and economic might) and those who have risen to the top of the social and cultural landscape. It is our annual snapshot of women who impact the world.

This year the list features eight heads of state–including our No. 1 German Chancellor Angela Merkel (plus one monarch who just celebrated her Diamond Jubilee), and 25 CEOs who control $984 billion in revenues and 11 billionaires. We feature some dozen entrepreneurs and 10 celebrities who do more than look good: they’re philanthropic do-gooders and entrepreneurial go-getters.

The New Celebrity Role Models: Sure, they’re famous but they deserve special attention for their outside work, be it ambassadors to meaningful causes and or as owners of thriving businesses. Oprah owns Harpo Productions and founded The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls. Lady Gaga (No. 14): she sings, she tweets and now she started The Born This Way Foundation, with funding from Harvard University and the MacArthur Foundation. Joining the efforts of the U.N. are Shakira (No. 40), Angelina Jolie (No. 66) and Gisele Bundchen (No. 83). Beyonce (No. 32) rules the House of Dereon and Sofia Vergara (No. 75) co-owns LatinWE. Jennifer Lopez (No. 38) is a multi-tiered empire.

Forbes' 2012 World's Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples

Klaudia//August 6, 2012
It’s been a tough year for celebrity couples. From Katy Perry and Russell Brand to Heidi Klum and Seal to Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher and, ultimately, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, the love affairs of the rich and famous seem to be falling apart everywhere these days. Still, there are some couples out there in Tinseltown and beyond who have not only managed to stay strong but are also laughing all the way to the bank together. Take Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z, for example. Last year’s runners-up on the list of The World’s Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples, the duo has now climbed one spot to top this year’s ranking. Knowles, who took a break from her hectic touring schedule in 2011 to give birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter, still collects big paychecks from old hits. Besides, the singer’s new album went platinum in the U.S., not to mention her non-musical ventures and endorsement deals, which all helped to bring her total earnings between May 1, 2011 and May 1, 2012 to $40 million, according to data from the latest Celebrity 100 list. And as the male half of music’s first couple, Jay-Z isn’t far behind his wife. The hip-hop mogul made millions from Watch the Throne, his musical collaboration with pal Kanye West, and even more from the tour that followed. Add to that a bevy of non-musical enterprises such as ad firm Translation and cosmetics company Carol’s Daughter and the result is a staggering $38 million that he has brought home in twelve months, putting the couple’s annual income at $78 million.

Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love” Is Best Song Of The ’00s

Klaudia//June 1, 2012
For whatever reason, British rock journal NME has painstakingly compiled a list of the 100 Best Tracks Of The ’00s, a good two-to-three years after many other sites and magazines did the same. Perhaps there’s something to be said for letting the dust settle on a decade before tackling the raddest tunes it produced? At any rate, the publication singled out “Crazy In Love”, the 2003 solo breakout smash from the world’s most beautiful woman, Beyonce, as its top pick from the previous decade. The song features her now-husband, Jay-Z, who also ranked at #32 with the Alicia Keys-featuring “Empire State Of Mind” and #49 with “99 Problems”. See who else made NME‘s cut below. Bey also pops up at #83, along with her Destiny’s Child bandmates, via their 2001 single “Independent Women Part 1″. Other artists who made the list twice include Outkast (at #5 with “Hey Ya” and #18 with “Ms. Jackson”), Amy Winehouse (#26 with “Rehab” and #61 with “Back To Black”), The Killers (at #41 with “Mr. Brightside” and #95 with “All These Things That I’ve Done”) and Eminem (at #73 with “Without Me” and #90 with “The Real Slim Shady”). Pop divas made a strong showing as well: Rihanna‘s 2007 smash “Umbrella” is #16, Lily Allen‘s debut hit “Smile” landed at #46, Britney Spears‘ Grammy winner “Toxic” is right behind at #47, Kelis‘ booty-shaker “Milkshake” shook its way to #71 and Kylie Minogue‘s signature song “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head” is #74.

Beyonce's First Tweet Causes Social Storm

Klaudia//April 14, 2012
Beyonce is the biggest gainer on this week's Billboard Social 50 chart, making a massive jump from No. 49 to claim the No. 17 spot after a frenzy of media activity and social buzz following the launch of the pop star's new Web presence. The Social 50 chart ranks the most popular artists on YouTube, Vevo, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, using a formula that blends weekly additions of friends/fans/followers along with weekly artist page views and weekly song plays. The launch of the Beyonce's official Web site ( on April 5 sent the social world into a tizzy. Her new site -- powered in part by Tumblr -- was announced the same day courtesy of the diva's first Tweet ( @beyonce). Her Twitter account had previously been the most-followed account without a single Tweet, with nearly 4 million followers. While Beyonce has had the account for over five years, she never said a peep until last week. And when fans have been waiting that long -- you know it's going to cause a stir. Beyonce's site is ambitious for a Tumblr. Keeping in mind the visual emphasis that has made the platform so popular, the site features a photo-centric theme that is devoid of extraneous frills and side menus. A simple black arrow featuring a slide-out menu allows visitors to seamlessly navigate to and the rest of her pages, which have all also been redesigned to fit the same easily digestable and visually appealing tone set by her Tumblr. The overhaul also prominently features links to Beyonce's social properties, streamlining the fan acquisition process which resulted in a 114% increase in fan acquisition over the previous week.

Beyonce Nabs Sixth No.1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs

Klaudia//March 6, 2012
As if nabbing her first No. 1 on Adult R&B last week wasn't enough for Beyoncé, earning the No. 1 spot on the overall R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart is certainly just right. "Love on Top," the song that will always remind us of Bey's pregnancy announcement on the MTV Video Music Awards, creeps up to the top (2-1), breaking Drake's five-week stay at the peak with two titles: "The Motto" (now No. 2) and "Make Me Proud," featuring Nicki Minaj (4-5). Beyoncé banks her sixth solo No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs with "Love on Top" (34 million audience impressions, up 14%, according to Nielsen BDS). The last time Beyoncé charted a No. 1 title was in 2008 with "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)." With the addition of four No. 1s from her Destiny's Child days, she proudly holds 10 toppers to her name.

Beyonce Banks First Adult R&B No. 1

Klaudia//February 26, 2012
In a seeming case of chart déjà vu, Drake continues his reign on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, as "The Motto," featuring Lil Wayne, rules at No. 1 for a second consecutive week. The routine success of Drake leaves allow plenty of room to focus on a stellar feat accomplished by Beyoncé and her old-school-reminiscent "Love on Top." The song earns the Greatest Gainer/Airplay award, lifting 4-2 (30 million audience impressions, up 22%, according to Nielsen BDS). Even better, "Love" becomes Queen Bey's first No. 1 song on the Adult R&B radio tally, where it rises 2-1 in its 19th week (dethroning Robin Thicke's "Love After War" after three weeks). A veteran of charting on Adult R&B for close to 10 years as a soloist, Mrs. Carter was previously closest to the top in 2008, when "Until The End of Time," with Justin Timberlake, reached No. 2. She also placed six songs on the chart in 1998-2005 as a member of Destiny's Child, rising as high as No. 10 with 2005's "Girl." Adding to Bey-mania this week, Beyoncé's former No. 2 hit "Party," also featuring Andre 3000, rebounds 10-8 in its 34th week on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

Ask Men's Top 100 Desireable Women Of 2012

Klaudia//February 2, 2012
39. Beyonce

First Jay-Z crushed our dreams by putting a ring on it, and then shortly after her fourth album dropped, Beyonce dropped another major announcement -- that she was pregnant. But that didn't stop the former Destiny's Child singer from touring, and it didn't stop her from making this list. The hip-hop megastar may have officially retired her Sasha Fierce alter ego to take on the role of mom to Blue Ivy, but we're sure she'll remain as mesmerizing as ever.
