Beyonce’s ALBUM SALES ARE IN . . . And It Looks Like Her Album Is . . . KINDA SORTA . . . FLOPPING!!!

: Beyonce pulled a STEALTH POWER MOVE, by releasing her project WITHOUT any promo from the label. The move saved Beyonce MILLIONS in promo expenses . . . millions that SHE gets to keep.

UPDATE - the website HitsDailyDouble now CHANGED ITS REPORT. Instead of saying that the album will sell 200K units in its first week, they say it will send 600K units.

And that is DEFINITELY NOT A FLOP!!! Go Queen Bey!!

Beyonce has too much presence to be done..she could put out a rap album and move units if she wanted too.. And the "real" Beyonce has always liked that hood side more she just now gets to show it. I think unfortunately Riri only has one side to show which keeps her within a certain demographic where Beyonce switches up here and there and has more of a mass appeal

Its a pity that mto is a black media source of gossip and spends more time spreading negativity about black artists than anyone. Every other media outlet has reported of her great sales. She released in the middle of billboards cycle but still sold half of born sinner in 3 HOURS! Beyonce makes music like Flawless with messages to empower black women and people. Mto makea media to put down their people.

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

Lol @ ANOTHER album her label is hesitant to release. Sounds like another 4: Sloppy, mediocre (and slightly ridiculous) filler music with no real singles that will likely flop at first but go platinum after enough damage control. "The Best of Beyoncé" CDs will be on the way shortly.

ok I'm no beyonce fan I honestly don't care for her but the album is actually pretty good... and also you guys sound dumb 80 thousand in 3 hours is good to me and her album hasn't even been released in stores yet it's only on iTunes so android and blackberry users have yet to purchase it well unless they have a MacBook or iPad

WELL, A EARLIER COMMENTER REFERENCED 200K IN SALES WHICH IS THE "NEW" WAY OF CALCULATING SUCCESS IN MARKET THAT HAS NO PHYSICAL RECORD STORES AND THE PUBLIC DOESN'T PURCHASE MUSIC ANYMORE. BUT ASIDE FROM SALES, MANY OF THESE CURRENT "ARTISTS" ARE PUTTING TOGETHER ANY QUALITY MUSIC. YOU HAVE BEATMAKERS AND ENGINEERS CONSTRUCTING MUSIC INSTEAD OF MUSICIANS AND THEREFORE THE MUSIC SCENE ESPECIALLY THE BLACK MUSIC SCENE IS RIFE WITH MINSTRELS WITH SUSPECT TALENT. THE TALENT THAT WE HAD YEARS AGO WOULD RUN CIRCLES AROUND THESE FOLKS THAT THE COMMENTERS APPEAR TO FAWN OVER..AGAIN THE DEGRADATION OF BLACK TALENT AND CULTURE KNOWS NO BOUNDS. BUT THERE'S HOPE AND IT CAN BE FOUND AT AFRONERDRADIO.COM TONIGHT AT 6PM EASTERN. HERE'S MORE INFO: And the Holiday Spirit and Season continues.....Howdy to our third-eye "citizenry!"

Excuse me??? How the hell is it flopping? I don't consider selling 80,000 first 2 hours a flop. Plus she didn't even have a promotion for the album. That's pretty damn good for no promotions. Not only that people were buying so much of her album that Itunes had to shut down. MTO "Get your Life" for real. I'm not even a Beyonce fan and see she has earned her spot. That was genius of her to pull that move.

@nonaluv Beyonce flips back and forth quite often. That hood ish ain't new.. Think about her Destiny Child days.. She was 16 back then,,Also different management.. I saw this coming the day her management switched..she's now under Jay who will let her have more freedom to express herself the way she wants.
