"The Lion King" Rules With $185 Million Debut

July 22, 2019

Simba and Mufasa reigned supreme this weekend as Disney’s “The Lion King” dominated box office charts. Director Jon Favreau’s remake of the animated classic collected a massive $185 million from 4,756 North American theaters during its first three days of release.

In yet another win for Disney, the movie landed the best domestic launch for a PG film and set a new record for the month of July. That figure also represents the second-best domestic debut of the year behind Disney and Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” ($357 million). After this weekend, the Buena Vista company now holds five of the top six biggest movies of 2018 so far.

Overseas, “The Lion King” felt the love with $269 million for a global start of $433 million. The film launched in China last weekend and has since earned $98 million, boosting the worldwide haul to $531 million.

Audiences also shelled out to see the hyper-realistic movie in the best quality possible. Imax theaters accounted for $25 million of tickets sold, while 36% of global ticket sales came from 3D screens.

'Homecoming' Reached 1.1M US Viewers in Its First Day

May 15, 2019

Netflix’s critically-acclaimed concert special Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé reached 1.1 million U.S. viewers on its April 17 premiere date, according to data newly provided by Nielsen via its SVOD Content Ratings system.

Introduced in October 2017, SVOD Content Ratings measures the viewership of subscription video on demand (SVOD) services via audio recognition software installed in 44,000 U.S. homes that contain Nielsen's TV set meters. While the highly-secretive Netflix has stated in the past that Nielsen's ratings are “not even close” to being accurate, it is the most reliable measure yet of SVOD viewership data.

According to the numbers compiled by Nielsen, the audience for Homecoming was 63% African American on the day of its premiere and 55% over its first seven days, more than any other Netflix original film or series analyzed to date (the closest was Bird Box with 24%). Hispanics, meanwhile, made up 15% of viewers, while Asians comprised 5%.

'Before I Let Go' Becomes Beyonce's 60th Hit on Billboard Hot 100

May 5, 2019

Beyoncé makes her 60th appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 chart as "Before I Let Go (Homecoming Live)" debuts at No. 75 (on the list dated May 4). The single, released April 17 as a bonus track on her Homecoming: The Live Album, bows after its first full week of tracking.

The cover of the 1981 hit by Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, which reached No. 13 on the Hot Soul Singles chart (now Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs) enters with 6.9 million U.S. streams in the week ending April 25, according to Nielsen Music. It also starts at No. 28 on Digital Song Sales with 6,000 downloads purchased in the same window.

Though "Go" doesn't yet make the all-genre Radio Songs chart, the single has claimed a fast start at R&B/hip-hop radio, bursting 45-27 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay with 7.2 million in audience in the week ending April 28.

In addition to its Hot 100 start, "Go" also opens at No. 45 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (which, like the Hot 100, blends streaming, sales and airplay data). Homecoming, meanwhile, ascends 7-4 on the all-genre Billboard 200 and 4-2 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts following its first full tracking week.

'Lemonade' Returns to Top 10 on Billboard 200

April 29, 2019

It’s a big week for Beyoncé on the Billboard 200 albums chart, as the diva claims a pair of concurrent top 10 albums for the first time.

Her 2016 album Lemonade re-enters the list at No. 9 following its wide streaming release, and Homecoming: The Live Album jumps 7-4 after its first full chart tracking week of activity. Further, two more Beyoncé albums dot the list, as both I Am… Sasha Fierce and her self-titled set re-enter the tally.

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 are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new May 4-dated chart, where Lemonade re-enters at No. 9, will be posted in full on Billboard's websites on April 30.

Homecoming: The Live Album rises 7-4 after its first full chart tracking week of activity, earning 57,000 equivalent album units (up 47%) in the week ending April 25. The album gains in both SEA and TEA units, but declines in album sales (8,000; down 43%). On the April 26-dated chart (reflecting the tracking week ending April 18), the album debuted on the list from just two days of activity, as it was released on April 17.

Beyonce's 'Homecoming' Album Debuts in Top 10 on Billboard 200

April 23, 2019

Beyoncé’s surprise-released Homecoming: The Live Album debuts at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 chart with 38,000 units earned from just two days of tracking activity (with 14,000 of that sum in album sales). The album dropped with no warning in the very early hours of Wednesday, April 17, and the tracking week for the chart ended on April 18. (Billboard’s album charts’ tracking week runs Friday through Thursday.)

Homecoming: The Live Album was released to digital retail and streaming services shortly after the premiere of Beyoncé’s Homecoming film on Netflix at 12:01 a.m. on April 17. Both projects chronicle Beyoncé’s headlining performances at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Homecoming: The Live Album is Beyoncé’s eighth top 10 album as a soloist. She also recently visited the top 10 as one-half of The Carters (alongside husband Jay-Z) with 2018’s No. 2-peaking Everything Is Love.

It’s possible that Homecoming: The Live Album could rise higher on next week’s Billboard 200 chart (dated May 4), after its first full tracking week of activity.

On the Run II Tour Finishes with More Than $250 Million

October 24, 2018

They say it’s a marathon, not a sprint. But for Beyoncé and JAY-Z, it was both. Their sprawling On the Run II Tour finished with $253.5 million in the bank, according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.

The trek wrapped Oct. 4 at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field, the last of the 48 stadium dates they played, after beginning June 6 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. From there, the dynamic duo played 18 shows throughout Europe, peaking at London Stadium’s two-night engagement with $11 million grossed and more than 125,000 tickets sold. After a few final shows in France, including their debut performance of “APESHIT” in Paris, they crossed the pond for 30 North American shows, with doubles in Landover, Md.; East Rutherford, N.J.; Chicago; Atlanta; Houston; and Pasadena, Calif. The biggest earner of the tour was the Aug. 25-26 engagement at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, grossing $14.1 million.

On the Run II is the sequel to 2014’s On the Run Tour, a massive success in its own right. Billboard named it the Top R&B/Hip-Hop tour of the year, coming in at No. 8 on 2014's overall Top Tours list, with three appearances on the year-end Top Boxscores ranking. The original trek grossed $109.6 million from 980,000 tickets sold.

But despite the high bar set four years ago, On the Run II expanded The Carters’ worldwide reach. The $253.5 million haul of this year’s run represents a 132 percent increase over the original’s gross. While one might worry that expanding from 21 sold-out stadium dates to 48 would be spreading oneself thin, Beyoncé and JAY-Z were still able to increase their average per-show gross, maintaining a pace of $5.28 million each night.

Beyoncé & JAY-Z's On the Run II Tour Surpasses $150 Million Earned

August 25, 2018

Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s On the Run II Tour tops the Hot Tours list dated Aug. 25, thanks to the latest batch of earnings reported to Billboard Boxscore for the couple's successful trek. Their placement is fueled by recent engagements in Minneapolis, Detroit, and two sold-out shows for 86,000 fans at Chicago’s Soldier Field, which totaled $21.2 million in grosses.

With the addition of these four dates, Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s co-headline trek exceeds $150 million grossed, rising to a total of $150.7 million. Across 29 shows in Europe and the U.S., total attendance has reached 1.4 million. There are 19 dates left to report to Boxscore before the tour closes on Oct. 4 at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.

With another month and a half of dates still ahead for Beyoncé and JAY-Z, their tour is trending toward the $250 million mark. As implied by the tour’s name, it is the sequel to their original 2014 On the Run stint. The 2018 installment has already blown past its predecessor, which brought in $109.6 million.

The couple’s massive summer tour caps off a particularly fertile few years of their storied careers. They released a pair of complimentary albums, Beyoncé’s Lemonade in 2016 and JAY-Z’s 4:44 the following year. Combined, these two efforts yielded 21 entries on the Hot 100 and earned 3.5 million equivalent album units according to Nielsen Music. Together, they completed the trilogy with 2018’s Everything is Love, billed to The Carters. The joint album, released in the middle of their European leg, topped five Billboard charts dated June 30, 2018, including Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums, Top Rap Albums, and Digital Albums.

On The Run II Tour European Leg Grosses $87.6M

July 31, 2018

With the combined star power of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, it comes as no surprise that the first leg of the couple’s “OTR II Tour” was a wild success. Pollstar’s Boxoffice has received reports for the entire 18-night European excursion – and every single show sold out.

Presented by Live Nation Global Touring in association with Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, the stadium outing kicked off June 6 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. That gig sold 39,731 tickets and grossed nearly $4.2 million (£3.1 million).

The European run racked up a total of 871,012 tickets sold and grossed more than $87.6 million. The average show sold 58,067 tickets and grossed more than $5.8 million, with tickets ranging in price from as low as €10 ($11.69) in Rome and Milan, Italy, to as high as €175 ($204.44) in Barcelona. The average ticket price was $100.57, which would seem a bargain to catch two of the biggest artists around.

The biggest stop of the European leg was the two-night stand at London Stadium, which sold a total of 126,443 tickets and grossed nearly $11.2 million. The London show also happened to be the location for the couple announcing the surprise release of their collaborative Everything Is Love album. The other cities that were treated to two nights of The Carters were Paris and Amsterdam.

5 Songs From 'Everything Is Love' Debut on Billboard Hot 100

June 27, 2018

As Beyoncé and JAY-Z earn their first charted album as a duo, as Everything Is Love, billed as by The Carters, opens at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 123,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music, five tracks from the set debut on the Billboard Hot 100.

"Apes**t" debuts the highest of the bunch on the Hot 100, at No. 13. Sparked by its official video, the song arrives with 24.1 million U.S. streams in the tracking week, as well as 20,000 downloads sold.

The Carters' "Boss" debuts at No. 77 on the Hot 100, followed by "Summer" at No. 84, "Nice" at No. 95 and "Friends" at No. 99.

Beyoncé and JAY-Z have each tallied 59 and 97 solo entries on the Hot 100, respectively. The husband-and-wife luminaries have logged eight shared Hot 100 entries under their usual monikers (Beyoncé and JAY-Z), including the eight-week No. 1 "Crazy in Love" (credited to Beyoncé featuring JAY-Z) in 2003.

Everything Is Love concurrently debuts at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, while "Apes**t" opens at No. 9 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

Beyonce Albums Re-Enter Billboard 200 Chart After Coachella

April 24, 2018

Beyoncé’s debut at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 14 powered big gains for her music sales and streams in the U.S. in the week ending April 19, according to Nielsen Music.

The diva headlined the second night of the festival, which was streamed live on YouTube. Her well-received performance featured her husband JAY-Z, her sister Solange and a Destiny’s Child reunion alongside group members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams .

Combined, the album and song catalog of both Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child saw an 83 percent increase in sales in the week ending April 19, as the two acts combined sold 8,000 albums (up 102 percent from 4,000 a week earlier) and 37,000 digital tracks (up 79 percent from 21,000).

The biggest-selling album between the two acts was Beyoncé’s 2016 set Lemonade, which re-enters the April 28-dated Top Album Sales chart at No. 24 with 5,000 sold (up 142 percent) -- its best sales frame since the week ending Dec. 28, 2017.

On the Billboard 200 -- which ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption -- Lemonade re-enters at No. 91, while her self-titled 2013 album returns at No. 138 and 2008's I Am… Sasha Fierce jumps back onto the tally at No. 160.

Beyoncé & Destiny's Child Sales Soar After Coachella

April 18, 2018

Not only did Beyoncé's Coachella 2018 performance make history and shake pop culture, it also sold a ton of music. In particular, that snazzy Destiny's Child reunion where Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams harmonized with Bey to sing "Soldier," "Lose My Breath" and "Say My Name," ushered in a major bump in digital sales.

According to Nielsen, after the performance ended, digital song sales for Destiny's Child hits soared some 767% on Sunday, April 15, not even 24 hours after the group collectively wowed the crowd. The trio is marking the 20th anniversary of the chart-topping girl's group, and the sudden uptick in downloads means the ladies have not lost relevancy even though they don't often perform live together. As for Bey, though it's hard to fathom that there are some people out there who don't already own her music, she still managed to sell yet more of it. Digital song sales for Beyoncé's catalog saw a 228% increase compared to a baseline established prior to Coachella.

Beyonce, with 7,000 units sold, overall moved more units because her baseline is larger than that of Destiny's Child, which moved around 1,200 units, according to Nielsen.

Of all that music, the song "Hold Up" was the top-selling track for Beyoncé with a sales spike of 287%.

The singer's most recent album, Lemonade, hit the number 1 spot on the overall worldwide iTunes chart, as well as national charts in Brazil, Denmark and Norway. In the United States, it ascended to the fifth position.

Beyonce's Coachella Performance Broke YouTube Viewing Record

April 18, 2018

As arguably one of the best live shows of recent times, Beyoncé's Coachella performance broke a major viewing record on YouTube during its live stream on Saturday, April 14. According to a press release, this year's Coachella was reportedly the festival's biggest to date, bringing over 41 million live views from fans in 232 countries over the weekend. Beyoncé's Saturday stage show alone garnered 458K simultaneous viewers around the world, making her awe-inspiring presentation the most viewed Coachella performance of all time, as well as the most viewed live music festival ever on YouTube.

Amidst the performance, Beyoncé became the first black woman to ever headline Coachella in its nearly 20-year history, and she absolutely made it a point to use the platform to showcase all of the beauty of her roots throughout the entire history-making night. Making mention of the monumental moment, Beyoncé spoke to the audience, saying, “Thank you Coachella for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline."

Sheeran scores his second Streaming Songs No. 1, following "Shape of You" (four weeks on top beginning March 25), as does Beyoncé, whose "Drunk in Love," featuring JAY-Z, led for four weeks in 2014.

On Radio Songs, "Perfect" holds at its No. 2 high (125 million in audience, up 6 percent, in the week ending Dec. 24).

"Perfect" Still No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100

December 19, 2017

Sheeran and Beyoncé's "Perfect" (on Atlantic Records) tops the Hot 100 for a second week. First released as a solo song by Sheeran on his album ÷ (Divide), which debuted atop the Billboard 200 dated March 25, the new duet version was released Nov. 30.

"Perfect" pushes 3-2 on Radio Songs (117 million in audience, up 13 percent, good for the Hot 100's top gain in airplay) and bullets at No. 3 on Streaming Songs (39.7 million U.S. streams, up 14 percent).

Ed Sheeran & Beyonce's 'Perfect' Tops Billboard Hot 100

December 12, 2017

Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé's "Perfect" crowns the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Dec. 23), fueled in large part by the first full week of sales for its new duet version.

"Perfect," released on Atlantic Records (and the 1,069th No. 1 in the Hot 100's history, which dates to its Aug. 4, 1958, launch), was first released as a solo song by Sheeran on his album ÷ (Divide), which debuted atop the Billboard 200 dated March 25. On Nov. 30, at 7 p.m. ET, the new duet version was released, hours before the end of the sales and streaming tracking week. In its first full tracking week, ending Dec. 7, the song sold 181,000 downloads, up 202 percent, according to Nielsen Music, as it spends a second week at No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart.

Plus, as the duet version accounts for 63 percent of the song's total sales for the week, Beyoncé has been added on the Hot 100 (and related charts) as a co-lead artist on "Perfect." (For chart purposes, both versions of "Perfect" contribute to the song's singular listing on the Hot 100.)

"Perfect" flies 11-3 on the Streaming Songs chart with 34.9 million U.S. streams, up 87 percent, in the tracking week ending Dec. 7, while, on Radio Songs, it pushes 4-3 (102 million in audience, up 14 percent, in the week ending Dec. 10).

'Perfect' Aiming for No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100

December 7, 2017

Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé's "Perfect" could top next week's Billboard Hot 100 (dated Dec. 23), fueled most heavily by a hefty first full week of sales for its new duet version.

On this week's Hot 100 (dated Dec. 16), "Perfect" pushes from No. 5 to a new No. 3 high, aided by a partial first day of impact from the new version. It ranks below Post Malone's "Rockstar," featuring 21 Savage, at No. 1 for an eighth week, and Camila Cabello's "Havana," featuring Young Thug, at its No. 2 peak for a fifth frame.

Highlights of next week's Hot 100, which blends streaming, airplay and sales data, according to Nielsen Music, will post on Billboard.com Monday (Dec. 11).

"Perfect" was first released as a solo song by Sheeran on his album ÷ (Divide), which debuted atop the Billboard 200 dated March 25. Last Thursday, Nov. 30, at 7 p.m. ET, the new duet version was released, hours before the end of the sales and streaming tracking week. In the tracking week ending tonight, Dec. 7, the song should sell 160,000 or more downloads, according to preliminary data. Such a sum could be enough to propel "Perfect" past "Rockstar" and crown the Hot 100.

For chart purposes, both versions of "Perfect" will contribute to the song's singular listing on the Hot 100. Additionally, following the first full week of tracking for the duet version, which could account for two-thirds of the song's sales in the week, Beyoncé will be added on the Hot 100 as a credited artist on "Perfect."

"Perfect" Duet is heading for Number 1 in the UK

December 5, 2017

Ed Sheeran is set to claim his fourth Number 1 on the UK Official Singles Chart as his latest single Perfect - newly re-worked as a duet with Beyonce - leads the way on the Official Chart Update.

Perfect originally entered the chart at Number 4 back in March, when he released his ÷ album. Last week the track matched its original peak after being given an official single release, and is now set to take this week's top spot after putting out a new version of the song with Beyonce.

If Perfect holds at Number 1, it will become Ed’s fourth UK chart topper following Sing, Thinking Out Loud and Shape of You.

Beyoncé Tops Forbes' Highest-Paid Women in Music List

November 20, 2017

Shortly after Adele took home the Grammy award for Album of the Year in February, she broke it in half--with the intention of physically sharing it with Beyoncé, the internet concluded—in recognition of the latter's Lemonade. But Queen Bey won an even more valuable distinction outright: she's this year's highest-paid woman in music, pulling in a whopping $105 million pretax.

Lemonade was a hit with both critics and fans, giving Beyoncé her sixth solo No. 1. The ensuing Formation World Tour, much of it falling into our list's scoring period, grossed a quarter of a billion dollars. Then she took time off as she and husband Jay-Z welcomed twins Rumi and Sir this summer. Adele finished second, earning $69 million, boosted by seven-figure nightly grosses on her first proper tour since 2011.

In order to form our list, we looked at pretax income from June 1, 2016 through June 1, 2017, and did not take out fees charged by agents, managers and lawyers. We gathered data from Nielsen SoundScan, Pollstar, the RIAA and interviews with industry insiders. The two mononymous stars both earned tens of millions more than the rest of the pack, but there are plenty of notable names further down the list.

Beyonce has trumped Rihanna for a higher position on Forbes' 2011 list of top earning women in music. The 'Countdown' singer is the fourth top earning female musician of the year, pocketing $35million in the last year alone. Bey was quiet for the first half of the year, but embarked on a worldwide promotional tour for latest album 4 which included a performance at the Glastonbury festival in June. RiRi trails just behind Bey to come in fifth place with an earning of $29million. The news may come as a shock to fans who bought Rihanna's sixth album Talk That Talk and paid for tickets to see her perform on 'Loud' tour. Also making the list is Alicia Keys who shares the number ten position with Britney Spears, earning $10million each.
Lady Gaga's The Monster Ball Tour At Madison Square Garden, the video from her Emmy-nominated HBO special, enters Top Music Videos at #1. It sold 26,000 copies this week, the greatest total for a music video since Beyonce's I Am…World Tour sold 37K and 31K its first two weeks in November and December 2010. Beyonce's new music video, Live At Roseland: Elements Of 4, debuts at #2 this week, with sales of 17K. Britney Spears' Live: The Femme Fatale Tour debuts at #3, with sales of 16K.
R&B singer Beyonce‘ has scored her third Number One song from her platinum selling album “4″ with the track “Party.” The song which features Andre3000 and J. Cole on the official remix, has shot up to number one on Billiards’ R&B/Hip Hop Chart. The song is also the highest played track on Urban radio, with little help from promotion. The track was the first song Beyonce’ recorded for her album “4.” The song gives an 90s vibe, to why so many people fell in love with the song. It was not long ago Beyonce’ released the music video and is also number one on 106 & Park.
Beyonce Knowles has been named the highest earning entertainer by the minute in the world. The 'Love on Top' singer topped a poll by social media website saucytime.com by earning £1.25 million for a five-song performance at a private New Year's Eve 2010 party on the island of St. Barts, equating to £71,040 for each minute she was on the stage. In second place was Mariah Carey, who earned £630,000 - or £44,400 per minute - for a four-song set at a similar party held the previous year on the same Caribbean island. Third highest earner per minute was Kylie Minogue, who commanded £33,000 every sixty seconds – or £2 million for her whole hour set –when she sung at the launch party of the Atlantis Hotel in Dubai, November 2008. Next was Jennifer Lopez, who received the equivalent of £25,000 a minute from Russian tycoon Andrei Meinichenko to appear at his wife's birthday party in 2007. Jennifer narrowly beat The Rolling Stones who rounded out the top five by making £2.2 million in 2002 from an hour and a half set for Texan billionaire David Bonderman's 60th birthday, the equivalent of £24,242 per minute. Saucytime.com - which charges users just £2 a minute for its services – also calculated the next five highest earners per minute to be Eminem at £16,666 Usher and Christina Aguilera tied in seventh place with £10,441, Rihanna earning £8,333 in ninth place and Cheryl Cole completing the top ten by commanding £4,167 per minute for an hour long private concert in Venice this February.
It’s official, when it comes to the greatest songs of the 2000s this generation’s baddest chick in the game reigns supreme. Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love,” which features hubby Jay-Z, tops VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of 00s list. Not only does Mrs. Knowles-Carter have the number-one song of the decade. She also shows up in two other slots in the Top 50 at #16 for “Single Ladies” and at #19 with her sisters in song Destiny’s Child for “Bootylicious.” Jay-Z also appeared solo on the list at #21 for “99 Problems,” but it was clear that collaborations provided some of the hottest tracks over the last 10 years. The proud papa-to-be also was featured at #8 for Alicia Keys’s “Empire State of Mind” and for his rhyme contributions to Rihanna’s “Umbrella” at number 11. Other big hits rounding out the Top 50 include, “Golddigger” by Kanye West, featuring Jamie Foxx, clocked in at #6, the #27 spot was owned by “Yeah!” (Usher featuring Lil' Jon and Ludacris) and “SexyBack” by Justin Timberlake, featuring Timbaland, is at #7. Viewers can expect an all-star group of guest artists talking heads including Kelly Rowland and Lil’ Jon to provide stories and commentary on all the charttopping hits. VH1’s five night, one-hour special 100 Greatest Songs of the‘00s begins Monday, October 3 at 10E/9c.
The VMAs also reveal their influence in the form of Hot 100 debuts, including Beyonce, whose "Love on Top" begins at No. 20 (and No. 10 on Digital Songs with sales of 113,000, marking the first Digital Songs top 10 from her album "4"). Beyonce performed the song on the VMAs (and then unsnapped her jacket and rubbed her belly, a move that served to announce her pregnancy). The No. 20 Hot 100 launch of "Love" is Beyonce's second-highest among her 29 solo career entries; only "Ring the Alarm" began at a higher rung (No. 12, 2006).
Following the August 28 announcement by singer Beyoncé that she was expecting her first child, internet searches for the term "Beyonce pregnant" increased by over 5,000 percent. The R&B singer announced to the public that she and her husband, rapper Jay -Z, were expecting their first child after performing at the 2011 MTV Music Video Awards. News of the announcement quickly spread around the world, breaking the record for the "most tweets per second record for a single event." In addition, data from Google Insights shows that the most searched for term over the past seven days was "Beyonce pregnant" which reached 'breakout' levels - a term used by Google to describe a search with an increase of over 5,000 percent. The data shows that while searches for 'Beyonce pregnant' peaked over August 29/30, they remained at a consistent level over the following six days; the majority of these searches originated in the United States, Ireland and South Africa. The R&B star, who turned 30 on September 4, also appeared fourth in the list of top ten search terms with the phrase 'Beyonce'. Other popular searches over the seven days prior to September 5 included the Japanese word for Typhoon- ‘??, ongoing tennis tournament the "US Open" and sports channel "ESPN3."

Beyonce's revelation — both on the red carpet and during her performance — that she and her husband, Jay-Z, are expecting their first child undoubtedly stole the show at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. The big warm-and-fuzzy moment also has provided the diva with a major bump, pun intended, on record sales. After telling the audience that she wanted them "to feel the love that's growing inside," she dived into "Love on Top," a cut from her album "4." The performance boosted the non-single into the iTunes top 5, while her actual single, "Best Thing I Never Had," is currently languishing at No. 23. The album has also made its way back into the top 10 on iTunes, coincidentally landing at the No. 4 spot. Despite being herald by critics, the disc has struggled a bit commercially. The album's first two singles, "Best Thing I Never Had" and "Run the World (Girls)," have failed to take off like "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)," "Irreplaceable," "Crazy in Love" and other huge hits. The album has so far logged fewer than 700,000 units, according to Nielsen Soundscan, since its June release — a sluggish number when compared to the record-breaking tallies that Adele and Lady Gaga have enjoyed with their recent releases.
Earthquakes, tsunamis, and hurricanes (and the odd World Cup soccer match) may be newsworthy subjects to post about on microblogging platform Twitter, but it was the news of pop singer Beyonce’s pregnancy that set a new Tweets Per Second (TPS) record. “Last night at 10:35pm ET, Beyonce's big MTV #VMA moment gave Twitter a record bump: 8,868 Tweets per second,” announced Twitter via its @twitterglobalpr account. Beyonce arrived on the red carpet at MTV’s Video Music Awards (VMAs) on Sunday, August 28, and revealed to the world that she and her husband Jay-Z are expecting their first baby. Twitter went crazy with Beyonce-themed posts as the singer showed off her growing baby bump. Twitter’s previous TPS record was reached in July 2011 during the Woman’s World Cup. During the Japan-USA and the Paraguay-Brazil matches, Twitterers sent terms such as the #WWC and #worldcupfinal hashtags and players' names to the top of Twitter's most talked about topics list, setting a record of 7,196 TPS. Prior to that, the volume of tweets spiked at more than 5,000 TPS in the moments after Japan's devastating earthquake and tsunami in March 2011.
Since Jay-Z was recently named the Hip-Hop Cash King, it’s only right that his queen Beyoncé gets some props for her money-making skills as well. Forbes magazine has crowned both Bey-Bey and Hov as music’s highest-paid couple, and the second overall highest-paid celebrity couple in the world. The R&B/hip-hop duo raked in $72 million between May 2010 and May 2011, with Beyoncé netting $35 million thanks to her Deréon apparel line and her endorsement deals with DirectTV, General Mills, L’Oreal and others. Meanwhile, Jigga’s earnings mostly came from his 10-year $150 million Live Nation deal, his 40/40 restaurant chain and his partial ownerships of the New Jersey Nets basketball team and ad firm Translation. Beyoncé earned a few more coins this week alone, as she finished out her residency of ’4 Intimate Nights With Beyonce’ concerts on Friday (Aug. 19) at New York’s Roseland Ballroom. It was a star-studded affair, as A-List celebs like Usher, Kelly Rowland, Lady Gaga, Maxwell, Jennifer Hudson as well as her proud husband, Jay-Z, were in attendance to see the R&B diva rock the Big Apple on the closing night.
Beyonce Knowles' fragrance Heat is the top selling celebrity perfume in the UK. The 29-year-old singer's debut scent - which is described as a mixture of floral, fruity and woody with tones of milkwood and tonka bean - beat Coleen Rooney's Butterflies to be named the best seller at The Fragrance Shop. Homme by soccer star David Beckham was third in the list, while his Intimately Yours fragrance was fifth, sandwiching Mariah Carey's Lollipop Bling which came in fourth. David's wife Victoria Beckham came in tenth in the poll, with her perfume Signature. The Fragrance Shop boss Sanjay Vadera said: "Celebrity fragrances remain top of the wish list." Beyonce - who is married to hip hop mogul Jay-Z - recently released her second scent Heat Rush, and she revealed she would not leave her house without wearing perfume because it is the "cherry on top of the cake". She said: "I feel like fragrance is one of the most important accessories a woman can have - it's sexy, it says something, and it's that final touch, like putting on a gorgeous pair of stilettos. "One of the things I remember from being a little girl is how I loved watching my mother getting ready to go out and she'd spray on her perfume. "It was this gorgeous blast that would linger in the room after she'd gone and it would remind me of her. I thought it was so sophisticated and glamorous, so feminine and sexy. To me, even if you are dressed to kill and everything is looking fabulous, you are still not done without that touch of fragrance. It's the cherry on top of the cake."
There’s no denying the amount of talent this phenomenal artist has and the humilty that comes with it but Beyonce continues to rule. Shortly after her husband Jay-Z topped the Forbes list of Hip-Hop’s top earners, she on the other hand is named as “the most powerful woman in the U.S.” by Forbes! Check out the full list below.

Beyoncé can add another platinum plaque to her wall. A month after its release, the singer’s fourth album has shipped one million units in the U.S. “4 has been certified Platinum by the RIAA,” read a statement on her official website. “Thank you to all the fans that purchased the album. We hope you’re enjoying it as much as we are.”
Beyonce's Run The World (Girls) peaked at number 40 on the radio airplay chart, but the follow-up from the 4 album, Best Thing I Never Had, jumps from number three to number one this week. It is the star's fifth number one on the chart, following Destiny’s Child releases Survivor, Bootylicious (both 2001), Lose My Breath (2004) and Crazy In Love – her 2003 collaboration with Jay-Z. Best Thing I Never Had piled on 712 additional plays and nearly 13 million extra listeners last week to top the list with an audience of 71.58 million – the highest of any track for six weeks. Eighteen plays on Radio 1 provided a top contribution of 18.18% to the track’s listenership but its top supporters were five stations in the Capital FM network, each of which provided 62 or 63 plays. The track also rockets 7-1 on the TV airplay chart, with its promotional videoclip logging 634 plays last week, 117 more than the previous week and 71 more than new runner-up, She Makes Me Wanna by JLS feat. Dev. Its biggest supporters: Chart Show TV (80 plays), MTV Hits (73) and MTV Base (61).
What goes around, comes back around... Beyoncé may have been referring to something a little different when she sang those words, but they hold true for today's news, too. Two weeks ago, Beyoncé's fourth solo album, 4, was released and eagerly awaiting fans around the world ensured it raced to the top of the charts. Now, in its second week, 4 is #1 again in the US and UK. Thanks to all the fans for your support!
As expected, Beyonce's fourth solo studio album, "4," bounds in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, selling 310,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's the diva's fourth solo No. 1 -- and fourth studio set to top the list. She's only the third act -- and second woman -- to see their first four studio albums debut atop the Billboard 200. Britney Spears did it with her first four between 1999 and 2003 while DMX's first five all started at No. 1 between 1998 and 2003. "4's" sales launch is lowest of her four releases: 2008's "I Am ... Sasha Fierce" entered with 482,000; 2006's "B'Day" bowed with 541,000 and 2003's "Dangerously In Love" started with 317,000. Of course, "4" is thus far lacking a smash hit single, which could help explain the album's softer entry. Its lead track, "Run the World (Girls)," peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 -- the first time the first single from a Beyonce studio set has missed the top 10. Still, "4's" bow is pretty big for 2011. It marks the third-largest sales week of the year, after the No. 1 bows of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" (1.1 million) and Adele's "21" (351,000).
US star Beyonce has claimed pole position in the UK album chart with her new record 4. The singer, who displaced Lady Gaga from number one, saw previous albums return to the chart in the wake of her performance at Glastonbury last Sunday. I Am Sasha Fierce, Dangerously In Love and No 1s by Destiny's Child all marched back into the Top 50. Beyonce's single Best Thing I Never Had entered at three, although Jason Derulo held onto the top spot. Beyonce has scored the second UK chart-topping album of her career with 4. Her solo debut, Dangerously In Love, hit the pinnacle in 2003. She also had a 2001 number one album with Destiny's Child and performed a number of their hit singles during her Glastonbury set.
It looks like 4 is going to be #1. Beyoncé's latest effort is projected to debut at #1 on the albums chart after selling an estimated 300,000 units in its first week, according to Billboard. Those sales would place her in the middle of the pack of fellow divas with albums out this year. Britney Spears' Femme Fatale sold 276,000 records her first week; Lady Gaga's Born This Way sold an impressive 1.1 million records, and Adele's 21 sold 352,000 records right out the gate (though it's had much more staying power than the others). The aptly titled fourth release from B would also be her fourth #1 album debut, though the numbers will likely be below her previous first-week sales. I Am ... Sasha Fierce sold 482,000 in its first week, in 2008, and her sophomore effort, 2006's B'Day, sold 541,000 albums. Her debut solo effort, Dangerously in Love, debuted with 317,000 units sold.
