  • Selling 1M pure is still possible for Beyoncé come on. It might take her a while to reach that milestone compared to Lemonade considering how dead pure sales are but she can make it. I’m mostly curious about how much Adele’s next album will sell in its first week.

      Hhmmmm I think you underestimate just how much bundles have skewed first week numbers for a LOT of artists. I think that is what they were more alluding to than the actual number one.

      • ^It depends on the album campaign and the rollout. If it's like the last albums with delayed CDs and vinyls being available more than a year after (or not at all) and nearly no promo or just one single then 1m pure copies is out of reach these days.

                          This. Like you have to do it Taylor Style to sell a million pure copies these days. Unless you're Adele. I will be surprised if Beyonce can sell like that in 2020 and beyond.

                              What did Lemonade sell in pure copies in the US total ?

                              • In retrospective, I like how the Pussycat Dolls handled their debut era back then:
                                Don't Cha - Oh, well just another of those US R&B girlbands.
                                Stickwitu - It's OK, but those are probably already the best 2 songs on the album.
                                Beep - WOW, didn't see that coming!
                                Buttons - Wait, that song is still coming from that album? I gotta have it asap !

                                I'm sure there haven't been many people buying the album because of 'I Don't Need a Man' or 'Wait a Minute', but they surely helped keeping the era, which is all you could ask for from a 5th and 6th single.

                                • Imo honest opinion. I think it'll be hard for her to sell 1m pure. She's been very active. Now if she had just did Coachella and released homecoming I would say for sure . But since then we got everything is love, the gift, black parade, savage remix. She honestly haven't gave people enough time to miss her.

                                    She did things for people to remember her, but have any of those little projects been well-received by the mainstream?

                                        And she will. But it'll be 2021 or 2022 by then. Pure sales will decline drastically over the next year or 2.

                                            If I remember correctly, it was at 1,95 million copies in US a while back. Its pushing 2 million I believe.

                                                Gurl Black is King spent two weeks on the hot 100. I think saying it was noticed by the mainstream in general is a bit of a stretch. Homecoming did well for a live album sure. Savage remix I dont think is really representative of Bey's solo power atm, the song was huge before she hopped on, this is NOT shade btw but its just true.

                                                  Metacritic scores nor critical acclaim nor indeed Grammy nominations have a single thing to do with the mainstream audiences, which is what theMathematician was actually talking about.

                                                  • "Lemonade" and "Homecoming" both have over 600 million streams on Spotify. One of them is a live album and the other one was only added to Spotify last year. "EVERYTHING IS LOVE" has 419 million streams. She’s doing fine.
