Beyonce and JAY-Z suffered a blow to their fragile egos when their surprise album, Everything is Love, debuted at #2 on the Billboard charts.

To add insult to injury, the power couple was edged out of the top spot by a boy band

Beyonce and JAY-Z's new album as The Carters lost in sales and streaming to boy band Five Seconds of Summer, Showbiz411 reports.

via Showbiz411 -- The Carters’ problem was two fold. First, they popped on Saturday at 6pm Eastern, a day and a half after the official release week began.

Second, all weekend their album was only on Jay Z’s Tidal streaming service. By foregoing iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon until Monday or Tuesday, they lost sales and momentum. Maybe they have so much money they don’t care. But I’ll be their respective labels, Universal and Columbia, aren’t so happy.

For the week, “The Carters” sold 70,000 downloads. *There’s no CD. Another roughly 55,000 came from streaming. That’s not much streaming considering their star power. The Tidal release killed them. Total 125K all in.

    I don't believe shyt put out by these frauds ... known facts .... they do play jedi mindtricks on album sales ... inflating numbers ... I see these frauds . thieves .. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/164ad7cc338a739f7fc2d94294a2ffb67b75ae66872436dbe732bfb54ee4ae16.gif

    Second!!!!! I never thought I would ever want to leave my beautiful PAWG girlfriend Cameron for a cute vegan sista out of Coweta County, Georgia.

  • Yui

    Still waiting on those Bey and Jay stats per post.

  • Trace da Ace

    not believing it...need receipts....

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Cool story, bro.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    These two play so many jedi mindtricks ... even the receipts should be questioned ... dark folks man I keep telling folks ....smh

  • Marlika

    Welp I listened to the album and feel it’s trash. I never cared for his collabos with her. ????? I like drunk in love. His work is better with the other females. ??????????

    I would like for Shawn to work on more documentaries and behind the scenes work. The Kalief Browder documentary was much needed and his story needed to be heard! I’m looking forward to the Trayvon Martin one next.

    He needs to let this heffa go on making bubble gum music & puzzy popping. What she knows to do best. She’s not intelligent and I doubt she really cares what goes on in our community. she’s just tagging along for the ride because he’s the driver. ??????

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    you late on the tea Sandra, and they did even worse in the UK. The album flopped! She allowing Jay to drag down her career.

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    old tea, errybody knows this already no receipts necessary

  • CocoBabe88

    Is #2 bad or something? It did better than I was expecting. Jayz’s fan base is not as strong anymore and Beyonce has ignored a large % of her fan base with the joint album. They had to expect these #’s.

  • CocoBabe88

    I agree on the Jayz part

  • Peppermint Patty

    You guys or the loyal (but real) beehive ppl please tell me is that a lacefront B is wearing or is that her true hairline?? Because flop or not it looks good....

  • CocoBabe88

    That’s her hair. You can’t tell, lol? She might have some pieces to extend the ponytail but that’s about it.

  • iWasteTime

    # 2 a day and a half later and on their own sh*t! Chile Cheese!
    Come on June 29th!!

  • CocoBabe88

    I think Jay should’ve stuck with being a mogul. The investments, the hotels, sitting at tables with Warren buffet.

  • hi-liter

    Ion think they complaining about 2nd place.

  • tintin

    yeh i don't really like when they do songs together, i just hate when she tries the hood stuff and she' s never even lived that life, at all

  • Phil Mccrackenzme

    Do either of them have anything to prove at this point??

  • noted24

    This lady literally built projects in Houston,bailed out kids during the Baltimore riots, went and fed people in Houston during the last major hurricane,and has whole charities that she's supported since her DC days that support our community.What have you done? My guess is nothing!Trash her music all you want, but to discredit her involvement in our community is disingenuous. I think you should follow what your pic says. I could cook an entire meal with all the salt from your post.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    125k ? Considering they are bringing double the star power, thats why they have the joint album and tour to double the profits. Its dismal , a horrendous failure

    In addition the sales and their placement on the charts is relative to who their competition is on the charts at the time

  • Blue

    I think they should be making more classic, timeless music. Stuff that you can still rock 20 years from now. Examples: Toni Braxton, Mariah Carey, and so on. The Carters should be beyond bragging about their wealth and the "we so hood" facade. What do I know though?

  • SweetTEE

    I really don't think they give a damn.

  • SweetTEE

    That is her hair. Nothing about that is lace.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    To be real I don’t think they really care. Plus it was released a day and half later only on tidal til Monday. Still winning to me.

  • Marlika

    This heffa didn’t do shit. Going down and getting your hands dirty is something, NOT THROWING MONEY AROUND. Ignorant ass Stan’s like you kill me. Stay out her bank account! Non of her coins are yours. Phucking idiot! Is she paying you defend her? She doesn’t even know your dumb ass exist! Do something productive today and everyday. If you don’t like what a had to say OH WELL!! ??????????

  • Marlika

    Thank you!!!!

  • Marlika

    Yes!!! And I really do like him doing the documentaries.

  • Marlika

    FYI cunt I do a lot of community work and I work with at risk youth daily. What do you for your community beside being a loser stanning for someone who doesn’t know your dumb ass exist?

  • TMW

    No promotion, not even a notice to the fans, and it was only available on Tidal. Something tells me they really weren’t trying to do numbers with this release, so #2 is not bad for not trying. I haven’t listened to it though.

  • Applebootay

    They don't give a flying Fk about the numbers.....

    My great-great-grandchildren already rich, that’s a lot of brown children on your Forbes list”

    Beyoncé: “If I gave two fucks — two fucks about streaming numbers, would have put Lemonade up on Spotify” “Fuck you fuck you you’re cool fuck you I’m out” “I ain’t never seen a ceiling in my whole life” “I’m so nice, Jesus Christ, I’m better than the hype, I give you life!”

    “Me and Hova do it like rebels / Most of ya’ll just got pebbles”

  • pika12

    I agree, seems they purposefully downplayed the album. Apparently they really don't give a hoot.

  • Ni Ni

    I think they should be making more classic, timeless music
    _____________
    Then their young fans wont think they're hip; they can't have their young fans thinking they're old. Gotta keep the music dumb so the kids can relate and bring in the ?.

  • Miss Thang

    I guess their music about what they know. Being hood rich. They are ignorant, shallow, and immature. I want to hear deep, emotional music. I was listening to some Prince, Teena Marie, Anita Baker, etc last night and crying my eyes out. I still feel that way about songs like Me, Myself, and I, and I used to like Hard Knock Life but I'm just over their antics. Your persona should never be bigger than the quality of your music.

  • Applebootay

    he's the driver......

    Sweetie, that's exactly what a husband should and suppose to do....LEAD....DRIVE....FOH...that album is far from trash...(no beehive or Jay Fan). I can't measure her intelligence by a institutional degree....however, she certainly didn't get where she is by being stupid....

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I think they knew the album wouldn't do well and deliberately put it out the way they did to have an excuse. They believed if they put out an album fans would start to come to their concerts, which is where the real money is, but the album/cd isn't good and was rushed, so now they are back at square one. No one is coming out to the concerts, and the music isn't selling. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, we all have an expiration date. You can only stay at the top for so long before things change. It happens to every celeb, athlete, actress, even us at home. Times change and so do people's interest and tastes. They should just chill after this so that they leave on top. I'm not a big Bey fan, but I don't want to see her downfall. I want her to go out gracefully, reinvent herself, her brand, then come back with something new.

  • Miss Thang

    their fans around so young anymore. Core demographic is aging right along with them.

  • Applebootay

    it was just on the news the scholarships that Jayz is using to send kids to college. http://www.blacknews.com/news/jay-z-mom-gloria-carter-shawn-carter-foundation-scholarship-program/#.WzJ5U4onapo

  • Miss Thang

    they always complaining about Grammy's though.

  • bemetoo

    they gonna have an excuse as to why the album didn't go #1 ...here are some ..it was a surprise album, didn't drop on the full week , only sold on tidal etc...

  • bemetoo

    clearly a beehive

  • Applebootay

    She's not singing or rapping about living the hood life though. Why do people keep referencing that. None of her lyrics about that life. She married someone who did and when you are equally yolked....that happens...he's giving her some edge and that's nice.....

  • Marlika

    Another loser stan I see. Go do something productive today. ?????

  • bemetoo

    yes they were they thought it would do like Beyonce surprise album

  • CaramelDrop

    “Maybe they have so much money they don’t care”

    ?????
    “If I gave two fucks — two fucks about streaming numbers, would have put Lemonade up on Spotify”
    - Beyoncé/NICE

  • Ni Ni

    I am aware that many of their aging fans share that "forever young" mentality as well.

  • Miss Thang

    it's so fake. It was cute on the Sasha Fierce album because she didn't do too much. But now, rapping has taken over her whole style of music.

  • Miss Thang

    I agree.

  • CaramelDrop

    Apple we were thinking about the same MF song lol! Same EXACT lyrics popped in my head.

    “I can do anything, Yeah!” That my fav on the album, well, next to Summer.

  • Applebootay

    She just did a collabo with her husband, how is that taking over her whole style of music? Lemonade certainly wasnt a rapping album. I'm just interesting in that statement..rapping has taken over her whole style....Janalle monae bascially rapped her whole new album ain't noboday saying ish....but this girl and her husband garner so much hate from people I see why they would make a album like this...its like a dedication to ALL their haters....

  • cherrypie

    Facts!!! Beyonce is a business woman and she is far from stupid but yet you have some people working the drive thru at the Taco Hut talking about this billionaire is stupid. What you doing to make ends meet @marlika??? FOH!

  • Applebootay

    Did he stop? You said "should've stuck" meaning he unstuck himself from investments....Like ....damn...he can't do it both? He should do that to make who feel more comfortable....yall be sounding so petty sometimes just to have something to say...

  • noted24

    Ignorant? Says the person getting belligerent about a simple correction. It already shows you have a horrible character, so I doubt you do anything for the youth with that attitude. Which is a go to for people who are hit with some truth bombs. I don't stan for Beyonce,I stan for ME!If you did the same you wouldn't come off as angry and slow. I'm not going going back and forth with your lying self. Again, it was a simple correction that can be backed by simply going to google.How about you go do something productive instead of lying about what you do and getting mad.

  • cherrypie

    Na, I don't think he ever quit. It was reported just yesterday that he started his own investment firm (Marcy Venture Partners). "Mr. Carter is no stranger to making big investments in companies outside of the music industry. Business Insider points out that he’s put stakes into the luggage company Away, the brokerage app Robinhood, and the private-jet company JetSmarter. He’s also an investor in Uber, and aside from Roc Nation owns the Champagne brand Armand de Brignac and is, of course, part owner of Tidal." I think he just enjoys making music and is not quite ready to let go.

  • Applebootay

    This whole...."Go do something productive" while you're actually doing the same damn thing we're doing...typing on this here blog...so MISS US and GTFOH with that ....its redundant and contradictory. and I usually like your post and agree with you on 98.9% of the time...but you being petty betty today....

  • seun

    Oh yes they do. If you think they don't, their respective record labels do. These two are indebted pawns...

  • tintin

    She sounds stupid and her words may not be about hood crap but she sure is rapping like she bout that life and she is far from that.

    We all know Bey aint gonna smack some bit$h upside her head. Bey stays home and cries.

    She needs to stay singing......alone

  • Blue

    Exactly!

  • Applebootay

    I'm CLEARLY a NO-HATING AZZ HIVE FAN....I don't have all his albums or all hers....I actually didn't care for her either...but I'm just not a hater like you. I see yall drank a whole pitcher of Haterade today....BYE

  • Applebootay

    Says you, your opinion. The concerts are sold out...Please tell me you getting your real news from reputable sources other than sandrarose.com? SMDH

  • tintin

    I aint gonna lie that song is the shit...and her verse is "Nice".

  • Applebootay

    When that base drops....Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii...I think I may have blown out my speakers in my car.

  • cherrypie

    Right! Are we all not on the same gossip site??? Straight E-Thuggin while cussing people out and throwing up the middle finger LMAO. However, I keep forgetting that its summertime and kids are out of school so I'm not paying it any mind.

  • Alextra Ballard

    These two have had countless number one Debut. So at this stage of the game debuting at number two is still good.

  • Applebootay

    I was like did dis bish just say..."I'm everybody's type...I gave you life....gotdamn right....".AYEEEEEEEEEEEE

  • CocoBabe88

    Well if true that’s great. He should stick with that and stay out of beyonce’s career. He lost a lot of money in bad investments previously which led me to believe he keeps picking up his rap career as a way to get some money. Rap is no money compared to his investments I’m sure so why not just focus on your businesses?

  • Applebum

    Haha at the people quoting what they say on their songs. Just because they say they don’t care about something doesn’t make it so. You must not know anything about egos and reverse psychology. Believe me when I tell you, they care. When your ego is bruised, the defense mechanism is to say that you don’t care, duh. They both didn’t win any Grammy’s this year, that’s a huge blow to their ego and businesses. They’re desperate to get members on Tidal and everything they do, people still not signing up. They’ve lost so much money with that company. And another reason why they do care, It cost tons of money to create an album (writers, engineers, beats, producers, etc..) they have bosses/higher ups that they answers to, they need to make money, they owe these labels. Keep thinking these entertainers are in control of their crafts/lives, lol. Jay-Z signed a 10 year tour deal with Live nation at 55 years old, he’s fawked.

  • CaramelDrop

    We turn THE f up around here! That chorus: “I can do anythiiiiiiinnnng” is EVERYTHING!

  • Music

    I honestly think they only released the album because of people complaining about them being on tour w/o new music. One the producers even said that they were putting finishing touches on songs less than an hr. before it was released.

  • TMW

    Even with that album, her team was dropping hints, and something went out to her website subscribers at midnight when it dropped. People really found out about this by word of mouth...and the blogs.

  • cherrypie

    I agree. Let Bey do her. The 1st OTR tour was ok but to do it again...so soon. And yes rap is no money compared to his investments. Its like he's getting old and does not want to let it go. Just like Beyonce hasnt done a duet with any males not including Lutha, and Ed Sheeran and that Spanish guy in her almost 20 year career.

  • Applebootay

    I was one of them....they got me right together too....lol

  • bemetoo

    ok solange go take your meds with yo bi polar neglected as a child chun-lee kicking crazy ass

  • bemetoo

    it is a terrible album

  • bemetoo

    terrible album

  • CaramelDrop

    Beyonce made a half a billion dollars from endorsements, joint ventures and touring alone in 2016 with a gut full of babies. She has been in the game over 20 years. Her money is long individually. She has it. They have it - to FLOP an album or two individually and collectively. A number two debuts is hardly a loss.
    I do agree this second tour may have a lot to do with Jay-Z ego though, maybe he going through “the change.” Beyonce being the good old fashion southern woman she is ... maybe she just trying to support him through this rough patch.

  • Applebootay

    Just listen to what you're saying...TIDAL is Jayz's so they don't need to care about the numbers....they don't need the hype...damn...and how do you know they're ego is bruised....#2 and no hype is actually #1 yall crazy azz hell...just making ish up just to have something negative to say....you sound so crazy....like you know them personally.....

    Per FORBES' list of America's Wealthiest Self-Made Women--released
    today--Beyoncé, 35, has amassed a personal fortune of $350 million. The
    total for Jay Z, 47, has soared to $810 million per last week's ranking
    of hip-hop's richest acts (he trails No. 1 Diddy by just $10 million). That brings the couple to a combined net worth of $1.16 billion and counting.

    So how, exactly, did they pull it off? Ask Beyoncé, and the answer is straightforward: "I'm never satisfied," she once told FORBES. "I’ve never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry.”

    Haters gone hate....

  • Applebootay

    $810 million??? and you think their ego is bruised?....GIRL BYE....

  • Applebootay

    In this case #2 IS #1....

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Yup that’s true T

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Me as well ?????

  • Applebootay

    Nope...not funny....now you just look like the kid who lost the fight but still standing around talking ish mad cause you don't know how to take an L and move around...LOL..HATING AZZ ..LOL

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Girl that you’re opinion and subjective! A for effort ?????

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Those are all facts , it dropped sat at 6pm and only released on tidal

  • RICHIE_RICH

    But the concert were already sold out with the exception of 2 to 3 shows

  • Applebootay

    MUSIC EVOLVES......thats life...IT SHOULD EVOLVE ....IT HAS TO EVOLVE.....when we were young, our parents thought our music was trash too....I remember my momma coming home breaking all of Prince albums because it was out that he worshipped the devil and if you played this particular song backwards ...(yep, on a real turntable) you could hear him saying 666 or some BS....IMHO, because I've listened to the entire album...they are not bragging to our community, to US.....but more so to the white man than anything...and yes there are a few lines for the haters...but I don't get bragging...on this project...

  • Applebootay

    Shiiiiiiiiiiiii...people evolve...or I hope so...she might not have Pre-Jayz.....but now she actually might....she don't look like she gone let you beat her azz....

  • xenaD

    And not only that some memes of them were going viral online! And u knoooo beyonce and her team be trolling af! A lil buzz was all they needed to drop that damn album... not strategically a good idea

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Bloop that’s what I’ve been saying. I wish Beyoncé can find a balance. The younger fans are the ones buying music, us old heads aren’t.

  • Applebootay

    RIGHT! She really TRIED IT....LOL

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Jay-Z is the only one complaining about Grammys , it’s was Beyoncé fans complaining when she didn’t win album of the year. Plus has the most Grammy’s then any other female artist. I doubt if she complaining ?????

  • Applebootay

    ALL OF THIS IS FAKE NEWS....and Alternative Facts....

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Please explain. Last I check Beyoncé has complete control of what she does!!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    That’s here peppermint patty ( that’s my nickname) yesss patty melt lol

  • Applebootay

    That just make ish up.....the haters do....just pull ish out their azz, the sky....

  • teather

    I don't think this site likes Bey or Jay. It's always shaded in gray.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    If they cared about debuting at #1, there are things they could have done to maximize their numbers and get that #1 ranking. Clearly it's not that important to them.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    It’s so funny how the haters come outta of the wood works when it comes to Bey and Jay. I’m proud of my black brother and sister making real boss moves. Not saying you have to like them, but truth be told it’s not many other blacks making boss moves like them and that’s FACTS. Respect the hustle ????

  • Miss Thang

    i'm looking for the "boss moves"...

  • Miss Thang

    countless? Bey has had 6 number 1s and Jay Z has had 4...

  • Miss Thang

    if she has to SIGN that she "doesn't care" on the album she's releasing then she really does care but knows the album wont do well. These people play so many mind games it's ridiculous.

  • Miss Thang

    yep, 2 major artists, supposedly A list, doing an unprecedented joint album together and still didn't make the cut lol

  • Miss Thang

    I agree. I don't think Bey is mature enough to truly reinvent herself though. She's very insecure and always has to sell her looks to get by when she has never needed to because she's talented. She's an empty shell of a person. Bey cannot be like Mariah or Pink or Adele or Kelly Clarkson who actually prolifically write their own good pop music, and she doesn't seem to want to do R&B anymore. So she will follow her husband into the garbage heap with this trap crap. So sad.

  • Miss Thang

    no, they're fleas. so it's a flea-hive.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I hear you, but I don't think of it as being fake though. Her husband is hood, so clearly he's rubbed off on her to some extent. Happens a lot when "middle class" girls marry hood dudes.

  • Miss Thang

    she isn't evolving. she's devolving to trash.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm not even the biggest fan of these two, but it's so annoying how ninjas will come out of the woodwork just to hate on them and spout all kinds of negativity. Good grief, some of y'all are so bitter and unhappy.

  • Miss Thang

    really? crying that she didn't win Album of the Year is more than complaining!!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Miss Thang , even ray Charles know they’ve made some boss moves.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I dont like either of them musically but kudos to them!!!!

  • FukkFolks2018
  • L. Thompson

    Show did she make half a billion in 2016, when her net worth is around 350 million? This is what people mean when they say, " she is overrated." You just made up figures in your damn head.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Yup some of Beyoncé fans can really go overboard and do way to much. Some people don’t like Beyoncé cause of her fans

  • Miss Thang

    Janelle is an authentic artist. Beyonce is a showgirl, which is fine, but don't make it out to be more than it is.

  • Miss Thang

    She stays in the corner and quietly watches her sister get in her husband's face. weak weak weak

  • FukkFolks2018

    They both didn’t win any Grammy’s this year, that’s a huge blow to their ego and businesses.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Really?

    bc neither won any in 2016 either and they seemed to have managed just fine.

  • Miss Thang

    lol i love this gif

  • CaramelDrop

    JayZ is over there runnin a number on her nerves too. I love them together but Jay seems as if he is pulling her strings a bit. I wonder what her dad thinks about her sound since she has been with him.

  • Miss Thang

    I think it's more hype than anything else. I think they are probably cash broke from their lavish lifestyle, but obviously i'm just speculating on a blog like everybody else.

  • CaramelDrop

    Nope. I looked them up just like you can. While your at it look up gross and net.
    Argue with them because Idga raggedy F what you say. The bitch is rich and that’s it.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Why is it , that we think like this when it comes to our fellow blacks , but not whites? Whites be the main ones broke and living off credit cards. Your”ll be surprise it’s a lot of out blacks that are doing damn good. Especially here in Atlanta. I’m a CPA with many black and white clients with a million plus sitting in accounts. Now to be on some real shit with you, jay and Bey are worth 1.6 billion something like that, no they don’t have that in the bank , but I’m sure they have about a good 200-400 million though.

  • Miss Thang

    is it me, or is the post about Bey and Jay? but I'm supposed to be talking about some white folks. If I wanted to talk about white folks, I'd be on TMZ. *sigh*

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Come on now stop trying to deflect from the question at hand. You’re one of the few that use logic when answering a question or making a comment. ?

  • Miss Thang

    you're the one who deflected speculating on what i may or may not think about these phantom white people that are nowhere to be found on this post.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    That’s not deflecting doll. You still haven’t answered the question?????, deflecting on the fact that J and B are broke. Don’t contradict yourself now

  • JennyJazzhands

    I ain't mad. A black man is head of a streaming music company and he and his wife joined forces to put their music on tidal first. Ain't mad at all. I'm buying the album Friday. I've already spent my entertainment budget this pay period and I don't want nothing bad enough to dip into another account or credit card.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    It’s sad actually. But they WOKE.

  • Joy King

    I think in the past the Tidal numbers have been extremely exaggerated. But a lot of major labels do that, it’s probably where Jay learned how to play the game. It’s all about perceived hype. I also believe the article that came out a few weeks ago about Tidal faking streaming numbers, has them being more cautious, so these numbers are real. Probably why they’re so much lower than what most would expect.

  • seun

    Listen. If you think she has full control over what she does, why is she still signed to Sony Columbia.? Does she own her masters? Who still stays with Sony after 20 years into their career. ?
    Put on your thinking cap.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Have you done your research? She use them for distribution, and yes she owns the master to her music. Bloop check mate , google is your friend. My thinking cap is always on.

  • Thanos of Titans

    I would think net would be more telling than gross. So I'm not sure how that helps your argument.

  • Applebootay

    That's what I'm trying to tell you....you doing too murch....

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Theyre tired
    their hype is tired
    Their fans are tired
    Their sound is tired
    Playing peek a boo with their kids for attention is tired.

    Yall greatly underestimate how many people no longer fuck with beyonce ( cause really jay HAS been) for staying with mighty lips. Yall underestimate how many people used her music to heal themselves from bad boyfriends and gfriends only for them to be completely dissilusioned with her fake strong woman act. And since camel is under investigation for being a lying scamming whore, they can't fudge the numbers either. This is just the begining. 5 seconds of summer really? Those dudes SUCK but hey so does jayonce

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Janelle is amazing. We dont deserve her with our hood loving illiterate nursing rhymes lean sippin music tastes.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Super weak. She was so happy that solange did what she could never. She probably cant raise her voice at him smfh

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    You're trying tologically talkto beyonce's fans? Seriously? Are you crazy? What do people who worship her and her pimp know???? Lol

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    A triggered one too! Lmao

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Bwahahaha THAT WAS HILARIOUS!!

  • Thanos of Titans

    The album is wack, Jay-z is wack, and Beyonce needs to do better. What the hell was she thinking? She needs to leave her husband at home and create quality music..either solo or with Destiny's Child. This new thug-life Bey is so corny and cringe worthy.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Ion think rewarming refried beans destiny child will work again. Remember that was the ace she pulled that one year when folks started being tired of her. If her and camel together showing her behind grinding on him like a desperate ho showing their twins didnt work, dc3 doesnt stand a chance.

  • Thanos of Titans

    LMAO you may be on to something...

  • CaramelDrop

    Not necessarily. People are given loans they can’t afford from their earning POTENTIAL. Hence the mention of the suggestion to look the definition of gross /net. I mentioned gross for 2016 to suppport th face the woman has BEEN making money for 20 years - 2016 being her most financially successful.

  • bemetoo

  • CaramelDrop

    Excuse the typo - I’m supposed to be working on pleadings and affidavits but disquis won’t leav me alone?

    I was thinking the same... Ugh.

  • Lady_Elle

    rofl

  • Lady_Elle

    Good for Jay & Bey!

  • seun

    Nope. She is still signed to them. If you own your masters to your recordings, your name will not be on the Artist roaster.

    Why did she need Sony Columbias permission, clearance and payment of royalties before making her last album exclusive to Tidal.?

    If she was in complete control like you stated, why did she need to that?

  • seun

    Indeed.???

  • RICHIE_RICH

    If you have done your research then conversation is ceased bye bye ?

  • cusp_23

    I guess I’m in the minority cause I think the album is dope. The rollout seemed rushed. I mean, why drop an album a week after your tour kicks off? And then, they’re not even performing music off the album (or are they?). I wonder if this is how they originally planned to release the album? Either way, low album sales are to be expected in the digital era. Bey & Jay aren’t immune to it. Then factor in the Tidal streaming service, which Bey & jay knows are got to affect their money and their sales, isn’t as competitive or as successful as other streaming giants. So.... I’m sure ultimately they’ll be fine.

  • Cats Gold

    Are you woke?

  • RICHIE_RICH

    I am indeed. Are you woke ?

  • cusp_23

    Yeah and previously they were using big corporate conglomerates to buy their album (Verizon/Sprint/T-Mobile etc) so that was inflating their numbers too.

  • Deanya Shaw

    ??? jay and Bey don't care about sells. Let's be real they're making music for themselves. Jay couldn't drop a flop album if he tired either could bey they got extremely loyal fans and continue to grow as artist after 15+yrs in the game. They are truly Music Royalties and they're overrated cause they been around so long and have to continue to make good music.

  • Miss Thang

    Michael Jackson owned Beyonce's recordings before his part of the Sony/ATV catalogue was sold back to Sony after he died lol

  • Logan Roberts

    Welp can't win em all ?.

  • gail jones

    Hell yeah. White folks be paying for groceries they ate a year ago

  • Ang

    You're using too much logic and making too much sense on a Beyoncé post. They don't want to hear it.

  • Ang

    Actually they were talking about boycotting after Beyoncé lost.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Was it confirmed? Idk. I don't een like these folk. But I'm like Issa Rae. I'm rooting for everyone black lol

  • kennedy220

    I doubt they care about it that much...beyonce been stop caring about radio singles. since the 4 album....before that album even came out she mentioned that...it hardly had any "radio friendly" songs on it...her last album 1st single release formation was def not a pop friendly radio release and thats where the charting counts let the sprites tell it

  • Ang

    You know Beyoncé never says anything herself. Solange put it on her SM. She retracted some of her statements once people told her she was wrong about the length of time it had been since a black person won album of the year at the Grammys and reminded her that we don't need to create our own awards as she suggested because we already have them but her sister never goes. Ironically, that year the NAACP awards were the day before the Grammys in the same city but Beyoncé didn't go even though she was nominated and won.

    I root for black people but that doesn't make me blind to what's right in front of me. You have to be blind to not see Beyoncé cares about awards and recognition.

  • Ang

    Why is it that anytime someone gives a less than favorable opinion about a black person someone assumes they wouldn't say the same about a white person? I've heard ALOT of people saying the same thing about white celebrities.

  • Ang

    That's the most obvious way to show people you really do care. If she didn't she wouldn't be addressing it lol.

  • Ang

    True, but they aren't even good mind games. They're so transparent. They care a great deal about awards, number ones and recognition in general. If she didn't care that lyric wouldn't exist.

  • Ang

    Beyoncé's mama took a dig at the Grammys on SM. You really think she would do that if her daughter and son-in-law didn't care about the Grammys?

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Who’s to stay ?

  • Ang

    Lol. Yea, okay

  • Malai

    You have the best humor ?? I be dyin at your posts ??

  • Malai

    What’s the point of signing up for tidal when there’s YouTube ? YT is my second home LMAO ?

  • samuel severino

    The album was supposed to drop on the 28th. Jay rushed it up to screw Nas since he heard that Nas was dissing him badly on the song Adam & Eve. In the end though the bad rollout only wound up screwing themselves.

  • samuel severino

    She hasn’t truly been the same since she stopped being managed by her Dad. Ever since she been with Jay the numbers ain’t been the same and the suspicious Illuminati imagery has only increased.

    The Apesh*t video is so blatant. In the very first second of the video the camera focuses on a fallen angel (we know what that means) and the video only gets worse from there if you understand the symbolism.

  • samuel severino

    It WOULD WORK if it was a true Destiny’s Child reunion and not just another version of us being told how great Beyonce is. Bring back the original 2 with some bomb new music combined with the classic hits and it would be fire

  • Joy King

    Facts!! Very true. Most people didn’t know that.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    But destinys child was her stepping stool into stardom shell never take a role other than center. Youre right my anti fleahive behind would be present af with roach spray. The original line up was ???

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    Exactly. I mean why else would he get that job at Puma??????
    Has he NOTHING better to do?

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    I heard their album sucked. I also read that they shift the number of sales to make tidal look legit

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Yep your in the minority.. Stopped reading after your first sentence. Enjoy the music...

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    These two can go to hell...and take there money with them...Jay looks like terrible!

  • Carrington

    I wouldn't buy the album because I'm just not into that kind of music, I'm not in the Beyhive because I'm not into most of the music she puts out... but, I still like to see black folk doing well so, I hope they continue this reign.

  • cusp_23

    I think you mean “you’re” . Too funny. I love when ppl throw shade filled responses with grammatical errors ?

  • Peppermint Patty

    I thought I could tell but then I saw a pic with her lace wrinkled and was floored...because I was fooled for years.....

  • Peppermint Patty

    They call me patty melt too...awww whasssup :-)

  • Applebootay

    STFU. I've never idolized anyone a day in my life. Just because I'm not a super fugging deluxe hater like you......you try to spin it as if I'm idolizing....So I can say the same about you....STOP HATING others and knowing the facts and/or fiction of their lives. Focus on YOU and your salvation. and kiss my big black azz.....for good measure.

  • Applebootay

    Yeah, you a L. and a sore loser azz taking a L type too I see.....IDFwith YOU....

  • Meh

  • London Barnes

    These two haters! Kayne west drops his album and these two come out and try and take his shine! its like they have stuff already in the making! and soon as someone come out with something BAM.......LIKE when George Cooley and his wife announce there twins.... here these two come they always strick so no one else is recognized.That the one thing i don't like that about them. it was pure facts when Beyonce stomach folded on national TV she was stuck her face told it all. We saw no pregnancy photos of her stomach with her daughter BLUE , now she was really pregnant with the twin she showed baby shower pic and all. The elevator fight was epic Solange was fucking Jay up Beyonce stood there like a rebot like she knew better to even help her sister whip his ass over becky. Jay looked at b like try me b you know i will beat that ass later. There truth will one day be reveal I DON'T address them as a power couple i have them labled as such a fake couple with alot of lies. They say she has bad breath and jay is aging like a Grandpa !
