Beyoncé's The Lion King: The Gift Underperforms


Last week it was reported that less than 1000 people downloaded "Lion King: The Gift" in the UK [click here if you missed that].

The US numbers weren't much better...

The numbers are in and Beyoncé's Lion King soundtrack companion album "The Lion King: The Gift" will debut at no. 2 on the Billboard chart 200 with 54,000 equivalent album units earned with 11,000 of those in pure album sales.

Beyoncé curated and produced "The Gift" and performed on 10 of the album's 14 songs.

Goes to show you that her career was all smoke and mirrors. She got on top this long by blackballing her labelmates and other female peers who she feels are a threat. If it's not song theft than it is dance theft. Cant stand her and her camel seahorse looking ass husband and their behind the scenes continual bullying and out of court "settlements". They are the worst, everybody was winning until bad breath bird brain came in and just hijack these females work. The only reason she couldn't do anything to Rhi is because she is her husband's artist. But other than that go somewhere and let these melinated women have their time. Byrd braid. So highkey annoying!!

I remember when she was in Destiny's Child and people really HATED her with a passion. How in the hell did this dry ass, no personality having ass bytch get so big?

The album is amazing! Still, it’s not a full Beyoncé album as there are a # of songs that she doesn’t even appear on. Plus, it’s a love letter to Africans so the average white folks + others don’t want to hear it. Everyone I know (educated, career oriented, proud Black people)loves it tho.

I found out she flopped last night. I was trying to figure out why she did a vanity album to go with the Lion King soundtrack that everybody else was on! It turns out that it wasn't vanity! The UK reported that Disney paid this bird 25 million pounds to be on the standard soundtrack, AND to make an album to go with it. That's about 50 million US dollars? Disney wanted her because they said she was so "loved" by people. Loved? I don't think so. Her album sales never reflected "love". More like... just a small rabid fanbase and non- stop marketing keeping her a float.

12:02 She was never that big. Her solo album sales proved it. She had way more US sales with Destiny's Child , than a solo artist. She LOST fans as a solo artist.... just look at the Beyonce vs. Destiny's Child sales.

I read this article last night. He said it perfectly. - If “The Gift” really does stiff– and it looks like it now–that will raise a lot of questions for the direction of the Beyhive. https://www.showbiz411.com/2019/07/27/beyonces-lion-king-the-gift-album-flops-with-just-50k-in-sales-new-songs-surprisingly-get-no-sales-or-chart-action

Lion King The Gift 11,000 US physical copies.... about 40,000 US downloads? 949? UK downloads...

Good. Are we one step closer to her going away yet??

She has fooled a lot of people for many years. Her popularity is what black people in the industry try to ride on but the real people know it’s been smoke and mirrors. She doesn’t stand for anything unless it’s lining her pockets. Lion King is a family favorite for many and they don’t like her ass capitalizing off it because it’s easier for her to fool the kids. Day in and day out kids are being told to go to school. Strive for success. This bitch can’t read and yet you’re supposed to look to her for inspiration. Gthfohwtb!!
She has secured her bag a long time ago. She needs to sit the fuck down before her image takes a hit for real.

Tiny and T.I’s youngest daughter is more intelligent than Beyonce. Sad...

Beyonce turned pop on that second album and paid her r&b fans dust after that. I respect her as a black woman but a fan I am not. She can't act or dance and she sings too hard. The hype around her has always amazed me. She's just ok at EVERYTHING..... Sis needs to go away gracefully or keep flopping like onika.

Beyonce got to where she is the same way Trump did. It was not talent or popularity but connections too deep for this gossip site. It's the same demonic influence that turned Cardi B into a star. YouTube "Hollyweird", "Universal Studios", "Disney", and "Illumati".

It's called witchcraft. Just take a look at the hive under a deep spell.

I also remember when she was hated in the late 90's. Everyone was on to how she and her mother were mistreating the other members of the group to the point where they were replaced several times. All for her solo career.

She stole the video; Lord please get a new team and reinvent yourself; you have to much money to continue to steal other people's work; personally I don't bye or listen to your music because frankly it's always a whisper of the evil surrounding it; just speaking the truth!!!!!!

She is just soooo annoying and overhyped

yea because after they got busted cheating, hacking streams and making up fake numbers, we finally get to see her real numbers.

Her record sales are definitely low but I guess people aren't buying albums like that if her album is still the 3rd top selling album in 2019. She really should take a break.
