Beyonce Swoops In At #1 With Over 313,000 "4" Albums Sold

Beyonce Knowles still topped the charts for her first week album sales, despite controversial reviews either loving her album 4, or completely hating it.  She's 4 for 4, beating out projected sales and securing her 4th #1 album.

 

Find out just how many units she actually pushed here in the U.S., when you read on...

Hits Daily Double reports Beyonce's full first week (last Tuesday to yesterday) of sales in the U.S. came out to 313,420 units sold.

4 leaked 3 weeks early and the "Girls" singer struggled to nab a Top 10 hit single.  Still, with little promotion in the U.S. prior to the album release, it's #1 with a hefty amount of sales.

She also sold about 164,000 albums internationally the first day of its release (a day before it was actually released in the U.S.) and the album was reportedly immediately #1 in 25 countries.

Last year, the Columbia artist moved 482,000 albums the first week with her "I Am...Sasha Fierce" double album.

Congrats!

The only fans she has are

The only fans she has are young teeny boppers, homosexual males, transvestites (because she dresses like them), and some 20 something's. Most grown men only think she's eye candy but will denounce her music. They state they can't stand her music and her voice, they just like to look at her bouncing and gyrating (cheaper than going to a strip club). Most 30+ females don't like her music, they will point out her voice is not as spectacular as its made out to be, they prefer Jill Scott, Mary J Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Jazmine Sullivan, Heather Headley, they'll go back to the likes of Patty and Aretha. They especially don't like that she has to dress and dance like a hoochie, and they will tell you, she really doesn't even pull the hoochie dance off well, she's so stiff, that it looks forced. Of course, that's due to the fact they grew up watching real talent in music videos and MTV's daily dance club thing of the 80's and 90's, or had grown up with soul train and/or American bandstand. They saw real dancing, then. What Bey does is not dancing, girls on the street, with no training can out dance this girl any day.

For all you STANS, why do you

For all you STANS, why do you waste your time coming on here stanning for Bey. It ain't like she cares about ya'll. You guys would probably take a bullet for her and she'd just laugh at you for being so stupid, and then step right over you to get to her car.

Her CD sucks, period. It's

Her CD sucks, period. It's still geared to a white audience. She really, really needs to get back to her R&B roots. Only white people will try to call this an R&B album, because they only know the type of R&B that 'crosses over' to POP music charts. She is not R&B, she just gets put in the category because of her skin color. She is a let down to her own people whom are hurt that their culture/music has been cast aside once again, watered down, once again. Even the Hip Hop now is more Hip POP and has lost its 'blackness'. When do we get our representation, again? We were so close in the 90's, and then they whitened it all up, again. Please, bring back the soul, let our soul sistahs and brothas shine, again? Since Luther's not around anymore, we gets no love? Seriously?

OK, I love Bey, I really do,

OK, I love Bey, I really do, but I have listened to her album online and it's NOT good, the only song I like on there is Party w/3 stacks. So am I "hating" on her?? I'm not at all, but the bottom line is that Bey will sell regardless. My problem with her is (in my opinion) she is still teenie bopper like (hasn't grown as an artist in the least). We are only a year apart (me being older) so I can say that I have grown up with her music. And when I was in my late teens early 20's that stuff she sang with the original DC was hot! But, I AINT 20 no more and over her lyrics. You are damn near 30 Bey, grow up! Your fans did (well most of us). I read a review of her album and it read: "If music was highschool, Beyonce would be valedictorian." I laughed but it's so true in many ways. Maybe I'm the only one on here 30 +...but hey, do you Beyonce no hate here, I still think you're fly as hell so keep doing whatever formula you are doing b/c it's working! Great PR/Marketing team!!! :D

Why are ya'll comparing her

Why are ya'll comparing her to Lady Ga Ga and Adele? They just came out last week (exaggeration). Bey has had the game on lock for a decade and a half, AT LEAST. And she's still going hard as ever, even her haters are possessed by her....keep clicking and commenting on her every posts. ICONIC......slayed the game, a long time ago at that. Sung for the 1st black Pres. just to name one of the highlights of her life. Lady Ga ga, Adele? yeah okay. Bottom line: Bey was on top before she got w/Jay....all her 'competitors' watched her live THEIR dreams before they started to....and none of them can do it like her. They are all SMACKED, yes Frankenstein headazz Rhi-Rhi, Ooogly faced Lady Ga Ga, and I don't even know who Adele is....oh just googled her - Ahem, yeah okay. Why ya'll comparing a YB&F chick to YW&F chicks, anyway? Oh, I know why - who else YB&F can you compare her to? LOL. #Slayed it.

To me there was an all out

To me there was an all out campaign against Beyonce and her new project. It was all over the blogosphere that the album was bad and there were rumors that her label was not pleased and there were emergency meetings about it. That turned people off. Then Kelly had a great single out that was doing well...shortly after Bey's single came out and people just knew that Bey did that to take the shine away from Kelly. (this whole beef is made up by the fans i think). I have heard dj's on the radio even speak about this and say they dont want to play her music cause Kelly should have some shine. Finally people are just plain tired of her. She has been on top for sooo long that its natural to want to see the underdog win for a change, after all, who can we identify with closely....the person who has made over 80mil while she was touring the last 2 times ....or the chick thats working hard trying to make it. Thats why i believe her album sales were not as great as the past. The project is great....mature sound and live instruments. I wish her and every other artist out there the best.
