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.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Beyonce out and about, so it was quite exciting to see her in her “ugly Christmas sweater”, as she and husband, Jay Z, were spotted leaving a Christmas Party outside of Beyonce’s office building. Check out the photos in the gallery.




Sia has a new album coming out in January, This Is Acting, which entirely features songs she originally wrote for other A-listers, but were ultimately rejected. She spoke to Rolling Stone about the process of recycling could-be hit songs for other people into an entire album for herself, and what working with people like Rihanna, Kanye, Katy Perry, Adele and Beyonce is like from her own refreshingly humble perspective.

“Not true of artists like Beyonce, with whom Sia says collaborating is “like a writing camp” and that “she’s very Frankenstein when she comes to the songs,” taking bits and pieces from various songwriters and asking to hear them mixed together. “In the end, she had maybe 25 songs of mine on hold, and I was very excited to get a couple of them back. Definitely one is on the album.”

You never know what your going to get when your waiting for the Queen. Most of the world waited and watched as Tidal celebrated the success of their app that launched earlier this year. We waited in anticipation, thinking we would get a shortened version of Beyonce’s recent setlist that she performed twice last month. But when Beyonce took the stage, she taught us a new lesson….she can steal the show in 10 minutes.

Not performing any of her own songs, Beyonce took the stage for a long awaited performance of her duet with Nicki Minaj on, Feeling Myself. After that, Nicki left the stage, and Bey opened Jay’s second set, as she sang the chorus of, Holy Grail, a verse originally sang by Justin Timberlake on Jay’s album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. Check out the photos and video from tonight’s event!
