I believe pop and international radios are done with Beyonce. She's still going to get support on urban radio as they're usually loyal.

Her album sales will continue to reduce but will remain respectable for the market climate.

The fact that she's also the best live performer of this generation will continue to keep her on people's minds

So in 10 years, I believe Beyonce will still be relevant but probably not as relevant aas she is now

I have not heard a single song from Lemonade on any radio station I listen to (even on urban stations) and her last single I heard regularly was probably Best Thing I Never Had. Radio is done with her so I doubt she's going to have many more popular singles.

At this point she has to rely on her albums but eventually people will get sick of them as well (full price, no streaming, no physicals, etc.). She'll either have to change her strategy again or fade away with time.

lmao at the pessimism, as if we're discussing a one-hit wonder

she'll do good, maybe less maybe more. doubt she'll have many smashes but she could easily have some more. and the hype and critical support will be there still unless she does sth extremely bad, which is not likely

Love this thread

I think you're underestimating her

She will sell these albums...
Not my kind of thing though

Beyonce is a peculiar case, and I actually like what she's done. She's purposely moved away from the singles market to focus on albums... this is common in hip hop and rock, but usually not for pop/r&b/diva type artists. She doesn't need a big hit, word of mouth and her reputation speak for itself and help her achieve more than many artists who live and die by the chart placement of their latest single. I actually think it's smart what she's done... pop stars only have a finite amount of time on radio, but album artists can go for decades and decades. If any of the modern (1999-onward) female pop stars have a bid at having Madonna's type of career where they're still going strong in their 50s, Beyonce is the most likely one to do it, because she's in it for the long haul in a world where pop stars are looking to the next 3-6 months at all times.

Hit singles were a big part of Madonna's career and legacy tho, albums are important but one of the most impressive things Madonna had was her abbility to score huge hits with every album she did during many years. She had notable huge hit songs in 3 decades.

I see Beyonce as some sort of modern Tina Turner instead.

but tina - as part of the originals - is bigger than madonna. all the originals (Turner, Franklin, Labelle, Ross, Streisand, Parton, Gladys etc)

are the biggest music legend there are.

The Madge Generation only really produced her, Janet and Whitney and the only other two who came after them were the two 90's singer whose names i've forgotten right now.

i think we cannot predict what will happen, bc right now the music industry is counting sales etc 4x in order to tabulate charts so what makes us think they'll stop now, maybe in 10 years they'll also include magazine covers and clicks on random websites by counting IP adresses. we are in a post-modern post music industry era. Anything that is happening now creates its own tradition and is separated from the past.

I see Beyonce headed towards the Led Zeppelin way and not the Beatles way. I am not comparing her to them of course. Just saying that she will be known as a albums artist more than anything and a OUTSTANDING performer. Tours will be sold out and she probably won't have any big hits.... but she will still have her name and anticipation.

I agree with this, her days with successful singles are long gone, she will probably some sell albums and concert tickets, especially in the US, will definitely be hard to score hits singles as it always is when you are past certain age.

THE LIE.

She's very thirsty for a hit. That's why she's promoting her songs/albums everywhere all the time.

She will have a meltdown and one huge flop album within 10 years.

Tina is amazing but not every single of hers necessarily smashed and she had big albums but not on that +20m / +30m / Diamond level, however she was known as the greatest female entertainer of her time hence everyone would attend to her legendary concerts that turned her into an acclaimed / respected performer.

Thats how I see Beyonce these days, not all of her singles smash, her albums are big but not big enough to compete with Adele, or Swift, yet she's the greatest female entertainer of her time which gives her acclaim and sells out her concerts. She's like a modern Tina and her legacy seems to be heading that way.

I think her hit making days are numbered.

But she'll continue to put out critically acclaimed albums and she will eventually top the $1 billion mark in touring [I think she's currently at roughly $700-$800m] joining both Céline [$1.3 billion] and Madonna [$1.4 billion].

The curious thing about Beyoncé is whether she'll take the next step up and join the legends over the next 10 years - she definitely has it in her, she's THE star of her generation.

I don't listen to the radio anymore but it's still popular in the Philippines like riding on jeepneys, and to the indigents.

again, in my opinion, Tina Turner is above anyone and should not be compared to other artists. She is an Original and as such invented and brought forward a huge part of what we now know as the music industry. She doesn't need gimmicks, she's pure, a true innovator and trailblazer for women just by her mere existence. Nothing Beyoncé did, does or will do can rival an original as much as the other legends will never ever touch an original.

Tina is to music what Katherine Hepburn was to film. Turner had alltime evergreens which weren't commercially successful because as an original she possesses sth that we have lost today: cultural impact. She will always be the #1 female artist who has ever lived.

I get what Leonix is getting at but agree with Stevvy of course. :P Tina is so different to Beyonce imo, more authentic and raw/soulful.
