A Trio of 'Lion King' Albums Crowd Top 10 on Soundtracks Chart

July 31, 2019

The top 10 of Billboard's latest Soundtracks chart, dated Aug. 3, is brought to you by all things The Lion King, as three companion albums to both the new Disney movie and the same-named 1994 animated film populate the region.

Beyoncé’s new The Lion King: The Gift project opens at No. 1 on the tally, earning 54,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 25, according to Nielsen Music. Meanwhile, Walt Disney Records’ new The Lion King soundtrack climbs 4-2 on the tally with 22,000 units earned (up 46%), and the same label’s soundtrack to the 1994 animated film pounces 13-9 with 7,000 units (up 48%).

The Soundtracks chart ranks the most popular soundtrack 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 Lion King: The Gift" Debuts at No. 2 on Billboard 200

July 29, 2019

Beyoncé, who voices the character Nala in Disney’s new The Lion King film, sees her King-inspired album The Lion King: The Gift debut at No. 2 on the new Billboard 200 chart with 54,000 equivalent album units earned (with 11,000 of that sum in album sales). The album was released on July 19 via Parkwood/Columbia Records. The set, which is billed to Beyoncé & Various Artists, boasts Queen Bey performing on 10 of the album’s 14 songs. Those songs include “Spirit,” which is also heard in the film and included on its Walt Disney Records soundtrack, which zooms 31-13 on the Billboard 200.

Beyoncé executive produced and curated The Lion King: The Gift, and also is a producer on each of the set’s tracks.

The Lion King: The Gift marks Beyoncé’s ninth top 10 effort on the Billboard 200 as a soloist, and second new top 10 of 2019, following Homecoming: The Live Album (a debut at No. 4, May 4). Notably, Beyoncé is just the second act of 2019, and first woman, to achieve two new top 10s this year. She follows Future, who notched two new top 10s with Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD (No. 1 on Feb. 2) and Save Me (No. 5 on June 22). (Beyoncé has actually seen three of her albums visit the top 10 in 2019 — the only act to achieve that feat this year. In addition to The Lion King: The Gift and Homecoming, her 2016 No. 1 Lemonade returned to the top 10 on the May 4-dated chart.)

"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."

'Perfect' No. 1 on Hot 100 for 5th Week

December 27, 2017

Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé's "Perfect" rules the Billboard Hot 100 for a third week, remaining the top-selling song of the week and ranking as the most-streamed title for the first time.

Sheeran and Beyoncé's "Perfect," released through Atlantic Records, and first as a solo song by Sheeran on his album ÷ (Divide), spends a fourth week at No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart, up 55 percent to 151,000 downloads sold in the week ending Dec. 21, according to Nielsen Music, good for the Hot 100's top sales gain. Aiding its momentum: its new "Perfect Symphony" version with Andrea Bocelli (which accounts for 32 percent of the song's total sales for the week).

"Perfect" also takes over atop the Streaming Songs chart, gaining by 9 percent to 43.4 million U.S. streams in the week ending Dec. 21. 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. In its second full tracking week, it sold 98,000 downloads (down 46 percent), as it spends a third week at No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart.

"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."
