Beyonce blasts onto the chart at No. 10 with “Formation.” The song, from her album Lemonade, which roars onto the Billboard 200 at No. 1, is her 16th solo Hot 100 top 10 and first since “Drunk in Love,” featuring Jay Z, which reached No. 2 in February 2014. (Beyonce has also notched 10 top 10s as part of Destiny’s Child.)

“Formation” bows with roughly two-thirds of its Hot 100 points from sales, as it starts at No. 3 on Digital Songs with 174,000 sold, having gone on sale April 25. It also enters Streaming Songs at No. 43 (6.5 million) with almost all its streaming points from Tidal, which holds exclusive streaming rights to Lemonade. (A nominal portion of streaming points is from user-generated clips featuring the song’s official audio.)

“Formation,” which also re-enters Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at a new high of No. 6, had bubbled under the Hot 100 and rose to No. 33 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in March, driven by airplay, when it was not available for purchase (and Tidal did not report the song’s streaming totals to Nielsen; none of its streams prior to April 23 were reported by Tidal to Nielsen). The track first made waves in early February, as Beyonce performed it live during the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show (Feb. 7).

While not available for purchase, Beyonce’s “Formation,” which she released on YouTube Feb. 6 and then performed on the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show Feb. 7, makes a noteworthy start at R&B/hip-hop radio.

Even though the song has yet to be officially promoted to radio stations by its label, Columbia, the song arrives as Beyonce’s highest career debut on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart (dated Feb. 27), entering at No. 11 with 16.3 million in audience (from 88 stations that played the song), according to Nielsen Music. Beyonce previously started at a high of No. 14 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay as featured (with Lil Wayne) on Usher’s “Love in This Club Part II” in 2008. As a lead artist, she tops her prior best beginning of No. 20 with “Singles Ladies (Put a Ring on It”), also in 2008. “Ladies” would become her longest-leading (12 weeks) of seven No. 1s on the chart.

On the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop chart (which, with Adult R&B Songs, combines to form the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay panel), “Formation” launches at No. 17. Genre airplay also pushes the track to a No. 18 debut on the Hot R&B Songs tally.

Beyoncé’s debut solo album Dangerously In Love has now sold more than 5 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music.

The effort, released in 2003, sold just over 2,000 copies in the week ending Dec. 24, bringing its cumulative total across the 5 million mark. It remains Beyoncé’s best-selling solo effort.

Dangerously In Love opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and was the first of so-far five No. 1 albums for the diva. All of her full-length studio efforts have reached the top slot, and all of them have sold at least a million copies: B’Day (released in 2006, 3.41 million sold), I Am… Sasha Fierce (2008, 3.2 million), 4 (2011, 1.5 million) and her self-titled album (2013; 2.3 million). So far, Beyoncé has sold 16 million solo albums in the U.S.

In addition, Beyonce has visited the top of the Billboard 200 and sold millions as part of Destiny’s Child. The group notched two No. 1s with Survivor and the greatest hits collection #1s. Destiny’s Child has four million-selling albums (including their biggest: The Writing’s On the Wall, with 6.4 million), while their total album sales stand at 17.5 million.

The “Beyonce” cut is the latest hit fueled by choreographers’ popular online videos.

Two months after Beyoncé dropped her surprise self-titled album, it’s still shaking up the music industry. Two weeks ago, album cut “Partition” reached No. 49 on the Streaming Songs chart with over 1.4 million streams in the U.S, despite the fact that the video (available for purchase with the album) isn’t on Youtube or Vevo, and the audio isn’t available on Spotify, Pandora and other similar services. How is this possible? User-generated Youtube videos, driven by a vibrant community of choreographed dance crews shaking it to the song on camera.

The “Partition” phenomenon is in some ways similar to “Harlem Shake,” the viral, dorm-room dance meme which took Brooklyn DJ-producer Baauer straight to the top of the Hot 100 the week of Feb. 23 thanks to millions of YouTube clicks. However, unlike with “Harlem Shake,” many of the most popular dance videos featuring “Partition” are created by professional choreographers, like Kyle Hanagami, who was inspired by the dance-heavy videos Beyonce included with her album.

The Billboard Hot 100 is officially “Drunk in Love.”

Fueled by significant gains in streams, on-demand plays and digital sales, the Beyonce single (which features husband Jay-Z) catapults eleven places to number two on the definitive weekly singles chart. Only Katy Perry’s smash “Dark Horse (featuring Juicy J),” which began its reign atop the chart last week, ranks higher.

In reaching number two, “Drunk” becomes Beyonce’s biggest hit since “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” Best known for its iconic video (and Kanye West’s fondness for the video), “Ladies” reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in late 2008.

Since then, only 2009′s “Halo” (#5) and “Sweet Dreams” (#10) and 2010′s “Telephone” (the Lady Gaga track on which Beyonce was featured, #3) have even reached the top ten.

The rise of “Drunk in Love” sends Pitbull’s “Timber (featuring Ke$ha)” down to number three. Jason DeRulo’s “Talk Dirty” ascends to #4, while OneRepublic’s “Counting Stars” slips to 5.

Passenger’s “Let Her Go” returns to its #6 peak, while A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera’s “Say Something” settles for #7.

Positioned at number eight, Pharrell’s “Happy” leads Lorde’s pair of “Royals” (#9) and “Team” (#10).
