Beyonce suffered a rare career failure as her Lion King-inspired song "Spirit" bombed on the sales charts.

The single, which is off her upcoming album Lion King: The Gift, currently sits at #66 on the iTunes chart after peaking at #3.

Despite Beyonce's avid fanbase, collectively known as "the BeyHive," the mom of 3 didn't move enough units to hit No. 1 or to even stay in the top 10.

According to Showbiz411, the song has dropped off of most music sales charts.

"'Spirit' is invisible. It's not on any Spotify streaming charts. On AppleMusic, 'Spirit' isn’t on the USA top 50. It appears at number 92 on the Global Streaming chart for Apple Music," writes Roger Friedman.

"Why? Because like most Beyonce songs, 'Spirit' isn't a song. It has no chorus, no lyrics that anyone understands. If you look at most of Beyonce's records, they are not singable. 'Single Ladies' is one of the very few. 'Crazy in Love' is constructed from the Chi Lites' 'Are You My Woman?'

"But Beyonce can be happy she received 6 Emmy nominations today for her homemade documentary, ‘Homecoming.' That's quite an accomplishment itself."

    I don't think she released the song for numbers, sis looking for an Oscar...

    LOL! Auntie! Has it had time to flop?

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Sad day when Jay Z at 50 years old looks more youthful than his 30 something ? year old wife..

  • Gloria

    She's still a very successful artist. Its true...... The song is no "Circle of Life" and is bland, even with her screaming vocals but she'll be ok. No one stays on the "top" forever,

  • Kanyade

    Congrats to her on her Emmy nominations.

    Also, didn't she record a whole ablum to go along with the soundtrack? She'll probably release other things. Who knows?

  • Wreckognize Game

    I listened to the song and watched a part of the video. It really feels like just a movie song so I didn’t let it play until the end.

  • n1kk1a

    I mean the song sucked so.....????? Just because Beyoncé sings it’s doesn’t mean it going to be good.

  • tintin

    Auntie hates Beyonce with a motherf**kin passion. I'm trying to remember when the hate began. I don't know if Bey sent a cease and desist. I'm tryna remember cause her hate for this woman is as real as it gets.
    The song hasn't even been released in Canada yet. i think it comes out tomorrow.

    Yes because that isn't a very flattering pic of B. She looks exactly like Tina in this pic.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    There was nothing special about that song. And after a while, all these Disney-inspired theme songs start sounding alike anyway. If you've heard one you've basically heard them all.

  • Ni Ni

    Have faith in the hive, Sandra. They will not let their queen fail. They gotta get their tickets to the movie first.

  • Keira

    Song flop. Sorry

  • TeeJay

    I don't give a s*** about the beehive. She f***** up Frankie Beverly's song and I'm still mad about that.

  • TeeJay

    Well, that's her mother. So why would it be unflattering?

  • oshh16

    That was truly a horrible remake.

  • KarmaBackAround

  • Karen Brady

    Can I tell you that I love maybe 3 or 4 Beyonce songs periodt but I LOVE this.. More so the 'Candy" half. This morning it came on and I thought that alot of people must not be feeling it cuz I haven't heard any noise about it at all like with so many of her other songs. You must not be alone.

    Lol what I meant was Beyonce at this angle looks way older than her age ..she looks like she's her mother's age. That's what makes it unflattering.

  • Desi

    That's her karma for putting that little girl in a glued, red lacefront.

  • gellie

    I honestly think people have OD'd on Bey. It might do her well to sit down for 5 minutes.

  • Pitty Patty

    It must be a slow news day...cause this aint news...

    I will say that I'm not in love with the song either, but I usually don' t like film inspired songs. They come off cheesy. But for the sake of the movie and record label contracts, I understand why she did it. She has so many albums she needs to finish to be done with Sony. So she releases Homecoming and this album... basically filler albums..I get it B. Plus if she can get an Oscar and win an Emmy, then who gives a shyt about billboard charts...

    Sis got bigger goals to reach, she's beyond numbers at this point...

    Frankie talking about he like her version. He know she sounded a mess. lol

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm with you on that. I thought it was a good version, and I felt the "Candy" part was a nice, creative touch.
    People get stuck on original song versions, and I get it, but to me music is about creativity. I think covering an established song and putting your own touch on it is cool if it's done well. And I think she did a good job.

  • ShelbyMoore

    She made this movie about herself, per usual. Lion King didn't need this type of remake. No one cared about who used their voice back when it was released and it did pretty well. Now, they care so much about who's behind the scenes and most people do not give a fawk!

    It's unfortunate. I think her crazy psycho fans have bred such a contempt for her, that many people feel like you that she should just go away forever. I won't go that far, but she needs to sit down frfr.

    Sometimes,....like I actually LOVED Lenny K's rendition of When Doves Cry, a whole diff sound and it grooved. Prince is near and dear to my heart too, but this Maze remake was turrible.

  • Let them eat cake

    i do have to admit thats one thing i hate about beyonce's music, you cant dance to it or really enjoy it. most of her songs are awkward and strange sounding with no easy flow/etc...i like spirit since its for a movie i dont have a harsh criticism

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Maane, y'all the truth on Beyonce now days, Lmaooooo!!!

  • Ghetto Real Name

    didn't move enough units to hit No. 1 or to even stay in the top 10.
    ^^^^^^^^
    Not the first time of her having what I think Simon Cowell called a "step child song". Said when Paris Bennett performed "Work It Out"

    "Why would you pick THAT song? She doesnt even perform that song. It was a FAILURE"

    It didnt even make the Billboard 100, and only peaked at like 5 on another chart.

    Oh well. It happens

  • Karen Brady

    I saw that.. lol

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Dionne Warwick told you all now about Beyonce!!!

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Now that I think about it she had songs on other soundtracks that flopped like shit too. "Listen" from Dreamgirls also bombed. Stay away from sountracks ghul

  • Junkanoo

    Over hyped filler with little artist integrity instead of being focused on star power the focus should of been on substances are they producing a film and soundtrack that could stand up against the original film clearly not. Disney is too damn greedy and doing too much they deserve a succession of failed projects.

  • https://nylapoprush.com/twitch twitch.tv/NylaPop

    The original or the live action?

  • ViolettaBliss

    Beyonce and Jay Z need to take a two year hiatus. They have over saturated the market in a bid to stay relevant . Don't get me wrong I love them as a couple and Bey is talented but enough is enough. Go raise your babies and enjoy life for a minute, make us look forward to your next big thing and then maybe we will be willing to keep paying unreasonable prices for tickets to your concert. There greed is palpable..

  • Ni Ni

    Surprisingly, I did like listen. She didn't do that forced vibrato thing...as much.

  • https://nylapoprush.com/twitch twitch.tv/NylaPop

    You're speaking the truth. It's really making me not want to see the movie. Just the thought of listening to her voice for hours is a major cringe. Plus I'm scared they ruined it by changing to movie to give Nala a bigger part somehow or overdid the dramatics of her scenes just because Beyonce plays her. Ugh. ?

  • 100milesperhour

    She should be doing opera on broadway. She over sings on the simplest songs.

    LOL!! ON POINT for sure.

    I don't believe I've ever seen a Disney movie in my life. Just not my thing. I've also never seen (and don't plan to): Titanic, Driving the Daisy, Fried Green Potatoes, Anything that goes Fast or Furious.. etc. But I've seen a million times and will see another one million times: Juice, The Best Man, Best Man Holiday, Boomerang, Set It Off, Paid in Full, Grease, Dirty Dancing, etc.. lol.

    Seems as if she has never done really well on any of her soundtracks or songs contributed to soundtracks period. None of them are blockbuster songs. And someone in her camp knows this but yet...she still does songs for soundtracks.

    Lol Baddie Bey ain't had a #1 hit since 2009 Chile. And her fans have the audacity to think she's better than the QUEEEEEN of Queens, Rihanna. Rih bangs out #1 hits like it's nothing. And her fans don't like her music unless it's a bop or another sad love song about Jay Z's camel toe face ass.

  • Katherine

    After listening to the song in full a couple of times I think it's a great song vocally and message wise. I think hearing it in the film will have a similar effect on many people. It's already getting Oscar buzz. Wouldn't be surprised if she adds an Oscar nomination to her 3 Emmy nominations, which she appears to have a good chance at winning at least one. In response to some of the comments, I really do not understand people who say they need a break from Beyonce (or any other entertainer) or that she needs to take a break. Do you take a break from your job or career? She makes music for her fans and works because that's what she enjoys doing. You are not being forced to listen or pay any attention to her whatsoever. I'm not a fan of many artists but I can't think not even one entertainer who I care about whether they take a break or not. If it's not my preference, I don't watch, listen, or read about it and I couldn't care less about who other people are listening to or what they watch or read. If Beyonce's work ethic honestly bothers you, I think it's a personal problem.

    Sounds like a good message. I remember being afraid to fail because I thought failure meant something was wrong with me. After reading motivational books and just living life, I realized my fear of failure was holding me back. I can't get back the years I wasted being afraid but now I'm fearless when it comes to failure. My goal is to learn and grow.

  • Nunya Business

    Would you stop if you had a loyal fan base who is going to come out to every concert tour? At this point she is not trying to convert new people into fans. The Bey Hive is vast and deep and they come out to every tour with the same songs and choreo. They know what they are going to get and they enjoy it every time. I believe she hasn't changed the dance steps because her fans truly enjoy doing every routine step by step at the concerts. Those who are not fans will probably never be because at 20+ years in the game you already know if you do or do not like her. And if you don't, she is not making music for you, which is completely fine. It's perfectly ok to ignore her if you don't like her because if she never gains another fan she has enough loyal fans who are going to ride for her no matter how the music sounds. It is what it is.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Too bad her fans don't buy her music.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Thanks. I think she could have done without the profanity in there, to keep it more "family friendly" for certain events/occasions. But overall, musically I think she and her producers did s super job on this.

    You consider Listen to be a flop? It was nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe so I thought it did pretty good for what it was. I know some people do not consider award nominations as a true test of a song's performance but as an artist to have a song get such recognition, especially since it didn't chart well, is an accomplishment. I liked it until I heard it entirely too much.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    It was nominated for an Oscar but she wasnt. Had 4 writers, and Only 3 writers can be nominated/win. it was determined she contributed the least so only the other 3 were going to get an award. So even as an artist she wouldnt have gotten anything for it. I do admit, Its beautiful lyrically. But the delivery sucked (jmo). Which is why it prolly didnt do all that hot on the charts.

    Britney Spears also banged out number one hits and won awards ( but can hardly sing IMO and has whack as songs) There have been plenty of could be hits by other artist but radio programming controls that. So a hit is nothing really but a song you like whether it charts or not. With this being said yep I’m a Rihanna and a Beyonce fan but this song is just ok

  • Nunya Business

    Music purchases as a whole are down but when it's time to buy those concert tickets they in there. Musicians never have really been paid that well off of albums sales. The needed the album sales in order to convince the record labels that the artist was worth the money to put on a tour. In Beyonce's case she doesn't need the album sales in order to get the label to put on a tour because she has established that people will go regardless. Speaking of album sales, all of her solo studio albums have debuted No. 1. Most most recent studio album with Jay-Z debuted at No. 2. I'm not sure about the numbers for her live albums and what she did with Destiny's Child but her fans buy her music.

  • interestingconcept1

    Lol, you have no idea how much music is in this world??? how many talented songwriters and musicians there are that you have obviously never heard of? Chile turn off that radio. Go to NPR SxSW top 100 and take a look. There is REAL music out there.

  • ImReallyCaitlynNotMelania

    Whatever! The movie is going to do very well and the song will end up being nominated for an Oscar, which is probably what she wants anyway.

  • T Willis

    Are we talking about prior to 10 years ago? I don’t think Beyoncé’s domestic sales ever went beyond 2-3 million copies in total. In some ways that’s an incredible feat, to maintain at least 1 million fans that will buy her albums. On the other hand, it means she’s not widening her base. If you’ve been to one Beyonce concert, then you’ve been to them all. Every now and then she’ll add a new concept, but the dance routines are pretty much the same from 10-20 years ago. And not maintaining her #1 status is a big blow to her ego, so, I think her haters or non-supporters are who she’s been going after for the last 10 years because her album and tour sales aren’t increasing.

  • YellowSauce

    the song IS wack like her get up at the premiere but she still good ..... lol

  • Indies beauty

    Saw the video within 7mins of dropping yesterday. And it's a beautiful song with meaning. Its not for the masses. It's not ment for the charts. Its deeper than that.

    With music, the beat and vibe as well as how the artist is singing or rapping draws me in, then I start listening to the lyrics after the 5th or so play. But I was drawn to her lyrics immediately in the second verse.

  • Nunya Business

    I agree. Dance routines are the same but I said that in my original comment. I believe it's done on purpose for those Bey Hive members to participate in. It's not hard to get a new choreographer and come up with new dance routines. It's on purpose. Again, in my opinion, she is not looking to convert new people into fans. If the die hard day 1s continue to do what they have always done she'll constantly be where she is now. Her fans are loyal and she'll always have them.

  • rockstar2142

    Chile I haven’t listened to the radio in years. I much prefer 90’s & 80’s music over today’s crap. All I’m saying is your dismissing a lot of folks. A lot of the greats didn’t write there music.

  • T Willis

    Brit was earning $700k a MONTH during her breakdown phase. Chick ain’t write nadda one hit and hadn’t toured for at least a year. Brit ain’t worked hard in almost 20 years and just sits back getting at least $500k a month doing nothing! Lol

  • T Willis

    That’s not smart - relying on her dwindling fan base. Beyonce has to extend her fan base - there’s no other option because her music catalog is weak, and if she continues to recycle the same dance routines folks will eventually stop supporting her tours. I think the numbers even show that. That’s why every other year she has to create a new concept to repackage the same music/dance routine. The surprise album, the visual album, and now Netflix. Plus didn’t Netflix report low viewership? Beyonce has to expand before the media picks up on her consistent flops. All it takes is one bad word of mouth (Lion King) and she’s done. That collab she did with Jay didn’t do well. The homecoming doc wasn’t a huge viewership ?. Hopefully she’ll turn things around ?????

  • kennedy220

    Lololol we will have to disagree. She had the team behind her to help her shut a lot of more talented artist down while in her prime. Vocally Beyonce, brandy, Xtina, Pink shut her down when it comes to vocal acrobatics and singing from the diaphragm. Her upper body dance moves were cheerleader at best. Mya was probably her main competition back then as far as singer dancer. I’ll include Beyonce too just because she’s also a performer and at least when Beyonce did sing live while dancing it wasn’t the wrong pitch. I’m being mean but i just hated the machine behind Brit and the spice girls you had girls out there who could really do it and got Nothing. Still happening.

    Always going to be new fans that haven’t seen them or the same old routine. It’s their job. Most of us do the same things in our 9-5s. Their 9-5s are just different but the same thing.

  • what?why

    I liked the song and thought the video was fabulous.

  • kennedy220

    All her songs aren’t going to make number one. Same for any artist even if they have Saturated the market. Prince, MJ,Madonna, Britney,Whitney, Yonce have all had many flops. But will still have income from the flops. Just saying

  • kennedy220

    Beyonce hasn’t cared about a number one since the release of her 4 album. She mentioned that before that album even came out. . Love on top was a surprise radio hit especially to be played on pop radio. She hasn’t for the most part kept up with trending sounds in radio until that duo album. Plenty of arist did the same routine. I went to plenty of MJ shows while he was living... same thing... but the fans didn’t care... Beyonce fans won’t care... it’s their 9-5 job

  • kennedy220

    I thought it was a nice song but that type of ballad wasn’t going to make it as a big song on the radio with any other artist either. Those Dianne Warren type of hot ballads died out with Celine Dions last big ballad hit. Was that the late 90s?

    Never said Never. I'll catch you in January when the nominations comes out.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    The song is just ok. I expected something a little more dramatic.

  • Li-Wright

    Roger tells it like it is. I can't name more than 2 maybe 3 Beyonce songs, and he's right about her songwriting abilities. But songwriting today is just not that good. You have a handful of really good songwriters like Bruno Mars who makes memorable singable tunes, and then the rest? Nothing memorable. It goes down fast and then disappears.
    I'm still singing old school songs by Marvin Gaye (btw, see the Musical Play when it comes to your town).

    Omg I totally forgot she and Jay did an album together ????

    Okay I was looking for parlor singer

  • Miss Thang

    Whitney knew how to play piano. But she did not write most of her music.

  • Kay J

    The music video is very beautiful and visually artistic.....that's all I got!

  • Miss Thang

    Nah. There are times artists oversaturate the market and they get annoying. It happened with Madonna in the early 90s. I was so annoyed with her during that period. Beyoncé is at that point now. It’s not about work ethic. Their image is ubiquitous in the media and it becomes boring.

  • Kimberly King

    You know what ? There really is room for both. But Bey's fans are OD annoying. I just can't lol

  • Kimberly King

    I grew up on Britney Spears and liked a lot of her music but uh .... don't ever compare Brit to the Queen. Please and thanks

  • Kimberly King

    But Chile could she sing ! Her voice was effortless.

  • rockstar2142

    Wow.. well to each his own I guess. Whitney’s voice was to powerful for me not to listen. The greatest of all time in my opinion.

  • Kimberly King

    She literally yelled the entire song. Her voice doesn't carry well on ballads. I can't stand hearing her sing "I Care" live.

  • rockstar2142

    I agree vocally she ain’t there but girl was the best performer out the bunch. Girl danced her butt off. Mya is a great dancer but Beyoncé she ain’t all that great of a dancer. Same old tired routines.

  • Kimberly King

    Don't think she's gonna get it.

  • Guest©

    Bingo!!

    If you are annoyed, too bad, that's your problem; hope you find a way to get over it because I don't think Beyonce is going anywhere. I grew up in the 70s and 80s (graduated from high school in '89...so I'm old). Anyway, I was a huge Madonna fan in the 80s and 90s and never wanted her to take a break. Prince and her were my favorites. Prince would put out an album every year and I ALWAYS looked forward to them. To each his own, but I don't think Beyonce is worried about oversaturation. She has her own personal goals that she has set for her career and her personal definition of success has evolved. She is no longer focusing on the charts or radio like she use to. She feels that she has earned the right to record whatever she wants and money is not an issue for her. She continues to grow and evolve on her own terms.

    I am NOT a Fan of Beyonce. However, THIS Video Right Here, "Spirit", is The Bomb! The visual presentation IS really Good: The Cinematography; the awesome dance moves, etc. I rarely download a Beyonce music Video but THIS one is already in my Archives.
    Kudos to Ms. Beyonce and her team for Bringing to Life . . . the Essence of the Motherland: A-F-R-I-C-A . . . Superb.

  • currvalicious

    Damn! Can you be just a lil bit more optimistic. "Mastered holding a fetus" was an awful thing to say. Making light of her fertility struggles is tasteless.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Yep. My Heart Will Go On, Celine Dion was like 1998.

  • Miss Thang

    It’s not a personal problem. More like an opinion which I think is allowed here in the comment section. You don’t have to be a bitch about it.

  • Katherine

    I'm not bitching, you said you were annoyed, I said I hope you get over it. On top of that, I simply responded to your opinion with my opinion, that's all.

  • Ayeola George

    Well your comment sent me straight to YouTube hunny... its visually captivating ... although somehow I feel a Solange vibe in there... totally not doing a who is the better artist thing here.. I love them both. but I've been bingeing on Solange lately so I guess thats y.

  • Miss Asian

    The way she treated her beyhive over that woman. She had her team to check her beyhive. Beyonce messed up. Uncle Tom lover they're saying.

  • Miss Asian

    She went out The house looking like this. It's not @Sandrarose fault.

  • Miss Asian

    That song is awful.. Sorry, not.

    Not sure why you’re trying to insult but since you are trying i would hope you could do better than that.

  • PetiteButterScotch

    I feel like this is why Rihanna still hasn’t dropped her album yet—to not steal the shine from Beyonce bc it seems ppl are getting tired of her n they somehow made the lion king movie a Beyonce promo run or some shit..Rihannas album probably would have kept anything out of the top 10 Beyonce dropped. She’s already sitting at 66...imagine if Rihanna had new music ????? Just a thought...I honestly feel like Rihanna was “told” to push her release back until the Lion King buzz dies down to a hum.

    -Not a Rihanna superfan

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Who else laughed seeing Blu in the wig ? I did ????? She’s such an adorable child..she ain need that damn wig ????

  • ALLMINE?

    She can't go away. She's been away.. she's an A+++ star.. I don't think its that easy unless she moved to Australia.. shes seen walking around out of a restaurant and u tired of seeing her lol

  • Miss Thang

    Yep I’m sick of seeing her and the Kardashians and Kanye. I’m sick of the usual suspects. I want some new stars. Even Michael Jackson the biggest star in the world knew how to give people a break. Stop calling the paparazzi.

  • Paula Hameen

    Whoa, tell us how you really feel. Quite harsh if I must say so myself. Every artist out there is capable of being picked apart or criticized because of the way they look, dress, or act.
    I would suggest you give all of your energy to your favorite artist, instead of using it to talk negatively about Bey. Bey will be fine. I couldn’t give that much negative energy to someone who doesn’t even know I exist.. Oh, and make sure you tell your fav artist to always use people of melanin in their videos to spotlight African influences, artists and HBCU’s . Tell your fav to stay off IG , showing out everyday trying to get attention all the time. Then maybe they might come close to dethroning Bey. Tell em to dance in 6 in heels while singing live.

  • Nicol B

    I thought this post was about Beyonce? Why do we always have to compare Black women? I think it is destructive. You don't hear people comparing Gaga and Miley. There is enough room for everyone to have their own lane.

    You KNOW What?
    Yes.
    We are On the Same Page!
    While watching this I thought the same thing that there is a Ms. Solange Flair about this video - - and I wouldn't be at all surprised if Beyonce's sister had a hand in its creation - - un-credited and working behind the scenes as is her personality: Cute and Pretty; Talented and of course, Humble.
    Love Her!

    Calm tf down its MY own thought. Has nothing to do with tearing anybody down. Like i said and this has been evident time and time again—Beyonce cannot stand being outshined by Rihanna and thats facts. I dnt giv a shit abt what Lady Gaga has to say about Miley—I dnt listen to them anyway ????? Next caller.

  • Miss Asian

    His woman right here was all up in jayz face beyonce felt some type of way and her beyhive checked the woman. she called Beyonce and jay crying about the beyhive. Bey had her team to write a letter to the hives to check the them. Her husband is white. And own the team. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/aca054eba3944354b8cb83c956e9f477de74ee6038408df2268b9589b8c6bf55.jp
