    This is way better than EVERYTHING IS LOVE and that album won a Grammy (even with Beyoncé and JAY-Z not lifting a finger). Beyoncé's The Gift is still the frontrunner for Urban Contemporary Album (if they submit it to this category).

    Almost every song on this album could be a smash with the exception of a few. There are more hits than not.

    But to be honest she only went with Spirit to get the Oscar, but I think it backfired massively.

    Bigger is still the "ballad" of her career. Nothing really comes close.

    I was thinking that this all may have turned out differently if My Gift was the only soundtrack for the movie.

    The double release was really confusing, even for the fans.

    The lack of a physical release also struck me as strange. That would have bolstered their numbers from fans buying copies.

    Still hoping for a vinyl release!

    There is no demand for her projects at this point. She just has to create a demand for her again. HOMECOMING wasn't even that huge considering her level, these three releases starting from EVERYTHING IS LOVE, to HOMECOMING and The Gift only show that the masses are not here for these kinds of concepts and direction.

    Some songs from The Gift are even better than the highs of Lemonade. The whole movie and it having another (conflicting) soundtrack had nothing to do with the public snubbing the album. "Spirit" is a non-event because it wasn't something that could ignite fan interest to begin with.

    Please show the reciepts for any live album the past years who did massively better than Homecoming that only had a digital release? Also the funny thing is that Spirit did around the same as the other singles released from Disney live action remakes of the past years, yet because it is Beyoncé there is no fan interest...make it make sense.

    Homecoming was incredibly successful for this type of release. I'm actually surprised at this. And the album is still selling, I don't remember any recent live release with even half its buzz and commercial performance. Probably the most creative Greatest Hits too
