how can this be true? I thought adele sold the most albums! Radio played one off of that album. No-one in nyc was singing, dancing or playing in the car.

This lady is doing the MOST to keep this album around. No one but the beyhive will remember this album in 10 years. FACT!

The machine is still at but for how much longer??? They utilize the power of manipulation to control the masses. They can make anyone appear to be successful but it's not reality, it's all a facade. *Moving right along*

I love this album and I'm not a beyhive memeber. Beyonce out did herself with this one. 'Bout time someone did something in homage to Black women—considering how important we are to Black music.

It came..it went and now it's gone. But just like all things Beyawnce, she's gonna try to squeeze every bit of lemon juice from that album. Scrapping the lemon skins and grinding down the seeds, too. She's gonna make sure it's talked about, given awards and played to death until she returns to the scene. Nobody runs shit down to the ground like this heffa.

@11:24, Yep, Lol
@11:38, yeah, I saw that also?

Like I've always said about aging women pop stars. Clothes start coming off, marriage and kids are used to explain their dwindling careers.

@ 10:20 and 11:38 EXACTLY

No way this heffa outsold Prince in 2016 !!!

These are Lies only show her Desperation.

Why is she even laying in front of a suv like she's been hit? "Crazy shit", That's not art. Is it me cause that is not consider a form of artistry? She must get mad in an evil way;if she doesn't get her way which is disclosed. If you're going to pay yourself accolades and be mum about it; at least explain your supposed creativeness. I guess it's a hate since I falsely conducted it as a mental status as being a "suicidal" depiction.

@ 11:38 & 12:01 That included all of his albums. This is an individual album. Also, this is physical copies and actual purchased downloads. That speaks volumes to her fanbase! I'll stream a lot of ish but 'Lemonade' is the only physical album I purchased in 2016.

It's similar to what happened recently with 'Views' and 'Damn'. This is because Kendrick's fanbase actually PURCHASED more physical copies of his new album while Drake's was all steams (and wasnt even available as a physical album). Artists like Beyoncé and Kendrick are keeping the music industry alive and y'all don't even know it. Drake (whom I love) is helping to continue to lead it in an unprofitable direction for most artists.

@12:36, I get you're doing your job but my job is to point out that this broad is trying to (once again) steal another more prolific and influential artist's shine, a true legend. *carry on*

I agree. Beyonce paid for her grammt. She now paying for black girls to go to college. Now she paid some unkown idiots to say she Muhammad Ali. The greatest of all time. What is it with these celebs and attention seeking? Is she trying to out do kim Kardashian bikini butt photos? Sit down beyonce and focus on your twins and to camel husband.

I can see Kendrick Lamar making waves. I saw his performance and could not take my eyes off of him and I am hardly into hip hop. He is simply amazing. Hope he can continue to make moves and achieve success ALONE. This parasite attaches herself to anyone who is getting any kind of shine. Wonder if she settled out of court with the guy she stole the visuals from.

I read girls had to explain how lemonade "changed" their lives in order to be considered for the schlorship or whatever. What?!!! You have got to be kidding.

@2:45 There is always some criteria when applying for any scholarship. If they were not impacted by 'Lemonade' (or if they didn't want to make up a story about how they were impacted by it lol) they simply didn't have to apply. You see how that works. *Rolls eyes*

Anonymous said...

3:02 I am aware of how the process works. Some scholarships simply one to have have REAL red hair and direct Irish lineage (no joke). I am well aware of a criteria used to received a scholarship. Just seems like more a$$ kissing for her to soothe the ego. Though not needed, your explanation was appreciated.

See, the thing that bothers me about this is...wayment... wasn't part of the concept of the album based on Lies? Didn't she have this publicity stunt pretending she and Jay-Z had a falling out?
Then a couple weeks later they were grinning on their yacht somewhere in Europe.
Didn't she endanger that Rachel chick and Rachel's daughter cuz her crazed fans though she was "becky" and harassed them both on the internetssss??
I mean, the whole thing was absurd and now we have a scholarship birthed from it and God knows what else. The world is bizarre.

They're trying to say Beyonce is the best selling for one project whereas Prince was a collection of albums. What's difference does it make? He still outsold her.

Adele outsold her easily.

Anonymous said...

Does that include the albums the record label bought? The beyonce camp is working over time with all this publicity for an album that wasn't that good. They must be trying to hide something. Let's focus on this and that while hiding some truths. She didn't outsell Prince or Adele. The Carters are not buying a $120 million dollar mansion. They owe too much money. They are borrowing money left and right. That tea was spilled last week.

Adele sold 17 Million in 2015...

2.5 is respectable for the average artist.

________

Adele sold 17 Mill in 2015.

And then sold nearly 2 Million in 2016.


I'm trying to understand why the media is selling Bey like the 2nd coming of Michael Jackson but she can't sell at least 5 Million per album.

6:09 I don't get the hype either.

Marriage and life she saw from her parents had Beyonce overthinking. She was like the next relationship I have will be calculated to it's Finest. He's going to find me a Goddess, Queen status, We're going to have equal share financially; so it won't bump the road. Then I'mma steal and copy ideas so I won't ever be compared to by any means necessary. Boom!

Mr. 5th Ave said...

Prince was the best selling artist meaning "all of his various albums sales combined." Beyoncé had the best selling "album," which is only one cd. Which is why it is the highest selling cd. It does not say she was the highest selling artist for the year. Read people! ����

Anonymous said...

It's still a flop...those other albums on the list had both physical sales and tons of streams, whereas that lemonade mess was only available for streaming on tidal and we all know nobody went to tidal lol. So the album all in all did 2.5 million which is a narrow win over adele's 2.4 mill, and remember adele sold that much in the second year that her album was out already!!!!
The "impact" of lemonade was a few days of gossiping on blogs about who her husband slept with and then it was gone. Embarrassing for an album that bouncé paid the media to say started a "social movement".
