    I’m so inspired by her success! And I am so glad she put this album out because her album 4 didn’t really show people what she was capable of. THIS is amazing.

    GO ON QUEEN BEY! They said no one would care, it was just hype. Not bad for an album only available on iTunes. Katy Perry, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, bow down. This is how it’s done.

    Add Britney to that list. Apparently Britney Spears only sold 107,000 copies of her new album. She came in behind Garth Brooks cover song album.

    Beyoncé is for sure riding the relevancy wave with her husband. Jay-z matched his talents with being able to stay current, playing the business game. The man has been riding the mainstream success train for over a decade now. Beyoncé is taking that all in. Mrs. Carter indeed. Work it girl!

    Somewhere right now, both Kanye and Lady Gaga are pissed they did not think of this stunt.

    Beyoncé cheated. Its nothing groundbreaking about this. She just made you idiots buy the whole album upfront before you could listen to all the singles and she pimped out her daughter to sell her album. People are already saying the album is not that good. She sold her album they way they use to do it and that is to make you guys buy the whole album instead of you choosing whether or not you want the whole product or one or two songs. You can’t get it unless you pay 15.99 for the entire album with her lame videos.

    @Sayer: Not really. Lady Gaga and Kanye West do not want to do this and the reason is, people are going to feel like they have been DUPED. You are right this was a stunt but in the end I don’t think it was a good one. She sold out her daughter for a funky stale album. For someone who claims they want privacy. Beyoncé pimped out her baby to the world. Not cool at all. Lady Gaga and Kanye West are not this stupid. Remember Beyoncé never graduated from highschool and is working on getting her GED. She can barely talk and is dumb as rocks.

    @Beyawnce is a cheater: How did she cheat? It was genius. There were snippets of each song, if you liked what you heard, you bought the whole album. If you only like a few songs, you can wait until December 20th to buy individual songs. I don’t see how you can be duped. You buy it now, wait until December 20th or you don’t bother with it all. As for selling out her daughter; she shows her daughter to the world on her terms, you don’t like it, step to the left. For someone who never graduated high school, she’s doing pretty damn good for herself.

    She a to do a gimmick like this to get buzz to try to sell albums, that’s why people can only buy the album and not singles….there are no hit songs to have gotten the album publicity, she tried to release songs earlier this year and they all flopped, bow down, Grown women and couple other ones, but the album sucks , can’t imagine someone buying it.

    Who’s shilling out money for the craPpy album, her voice is God awful on the album, a lot of people with too much money or time, shm

    I have often wonder this? I listen to the “trailers” and NOTHING was exceptional about those songs..The marketing stunt was brilliant but can only be done once. And aside from dj’s and who plays Beyonce tunes in clubs..with spodify who is buying her music. It must be europeans.

    Beyawnce is a cheater Says:

    @Verity: Theirs nothing genius about this because she played a game that she won in this round but just as easy as it was to climb to the top I predict this album will fall to the bottom really fast and lets see who has the last laugh then. This was a good scam and stunt. She duped her stupid fans into buying the whole album instead of being fair like the other artists. I applaud Britney Spears for taking it like a big girl and letting everyone decide for themselves if they wanted to buy her whole album and releasing all the songs just like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Emimen and others. Beyoncé was scared to compete. Her songs are not that good and if it was released like how the other artists let us hear the tracks before the album came out, her album would have had a different outcome in sells, because people are saying this album sucks. People rushed to buy something without thinking. Beyoncé is no Queen because she can barely form a complete sentence when she speaks. This was a sneaky move on her part but it will backfire on her. She pimped out her own daughter to sell some records. How low can you go. So when Beyoncé pulls a stunt like this its considered genius but if Lady Gaga did this people would be screaming and yelling saying that she was a cheater and a scam artist. So since no one is calling this what it is. I’m going to say BEYAWNCE IS A CHEATER, SHE KNEW HER ALBUM WAS NOT GOING TO SELL AND SHE DUPED HER FANS INTO BUYING THE WHOLE ALBUM AND THEN CALLS THIS ART AND NEW. It’s going to be a lot of buyers remorse once people realize what happened.

    the music is crap on the album. but shes quite clever to release the videos because it serves as a distraction.

    @Beyawnce is a cheater: Well I was getting ready to write what you just did so I’ll just say “I second that!” No genius here…even though I wouldn’t say it’s “cheating” either just a clever gimmick. Which annoys me. I usually buy her albums anyway but I felt insulted and refused. It’s some what along the lines of Lady Gaga’s $.99 deal except in the reverse…she added all those sleazy videos as a bonus because yes Beyonce and her folks know she wasn’t going to do well going the traditional way. The music is weak and her star is fading fast! Week # 2 and beyond will tell the real deal.
