MUSIC FAB: King B Goes Platinum With "4"

 

Beyonce stans just helped her latest album, 4, reach platinum status. Deets inside....

 

According to her official website, Beyonce's album 4 has been certified platinum by the RIAA.  A statement on the site read....

"4 has been certified Platinum by the RIAA.  Thank you to all the fans that purchased the album. We hope you’re enjoying it as much as we are.”

Beyonce recently revealed that the year she took off work was to protect her mental health.

 “I couldn't even tell which day or which city I was at,” she told The Sun. “I would sit there at ceremonies and they would give me an award and I was just thinking about the next performance. I never really thought about how fortunate I was - it was onto the next project and the next day.”

Well now that she has her fourth platinum solo album under her belt, it looks like the rest paid off.

Get 'em Bey!

On August 1, 2011, the album

On August 1, 2011, the album was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipment of over million copies to retail stores.[118] As of July 31, 2011, the album had sold 593,000 copies in the United States.[119]So, no she hasn't sold a million albums and yes according to RIAA she has gone platinum.

Reading all this negativity

Reading all this negativity on this website makes me sad. Positivity is power people. Can we get it together and positively represent our African American heritage?

Some Idiot said something

Some Idiot said something about going through the comments and watching the "Fags" Defend their King B.... Fisrt off Beyonce does not need defending, her work album sales and awards speak for themselves... Secondly, Usually the person calling someone else a "FAG" is the biggest one themselves...

Whatever haters will say, I'm

Whatever haters will say, I'm still sooooo happy for her successes! Haters should try that for a change. Give credit where it's due! I would probably buy ALL her copies just so she could reach platinum because, say what you want to say, she works hard and she's just reaping what she's sown! LUv her! Luv her work ethic!

It's disgusting to read some

It's disgusting to read some of these comments. There's a difference between being a hater and offering an opinion, but calling people you don't know a B9(*h, hoe, fake, a liar etc is ridiculous. And I'm not only speaking about a Beyonce post. If you read any of the posts some of these jobless, ghetto birds go in on everyone and it's really sad. I guess you have a lot of time on your hands when you don't work and take money from the 'gubment' all day! Do better black folk cuz other races don't tear their people apart like we do! FACT

According to Soundscan -

According to Soundscan - which talliess the actual sales of albums and singles; for the week of July 27th 2011 Beyonce 4 sold 551,654 in total which is gold. Publicists often report how many records have been shipped as opposed to sold. Just because one has shipped platinum (i.e. sent a million records to retailers) does not mean they will sell all of those units. Please be accurate in your reporting, it is very simple for people to research this information; false information only undermines this site's credibility.
LOLOLOL's picture

I think the retailers order

I think the retailers order an purchace the album at a discount price. then they mark it up for profit. If they shipped 1,000,000 then I guess 1,000,000 is sold to the retailer and they make their money back off of you.

Oh no, she barely went GOLD

Oh no, she barely went GOLD last week. She is NOT PLATINUM in the US. A million copies were not sold here, a million was shipped. There's a difference. So yea, she's only Gold. Out of all 4 albums this has done the worst. I like it, but it isn't doing so well.

She just surpassed GOLD in the U.S. The rest of her sales are in the international market. Congrats to her, but its not a hit in the U.S. I don't care for it myself save for a few songs.

I CAN TRULY BELIEVE THAT SHE

I CAN TRULY BELIEVE THAT SHE BOUGHT MOST OF THESE CDS HERSELF. BEYONCE WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT INSTEAD OF HAVING TO ADMIT THAT SHE IS A BIG FAIL. HER TIME IS COMING TO AN END. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHERE ALL THOSE CDS ARE, CALL PUBLIC STORAGE.

My cousin and I used to be

My cousin and I used to be such big fans of Beyonce until a while back when she was visiting Miami and a little girl who was a fan ran up to B and asked her for an autograph and guessed what that BOOGIE ASS BITCH did?! She looked down at the girl and kept on walking! The little girl was so hurt and the crowd of people that was there was like damn that was messed up! Beyonce is a total bitch! She tries so hard to act like she's sweet and nice but trust me she only acts like that when there's cameras around. She's always sporting that FAKE ASS smile on her face making it seem like she's so happy to be there and ish!!! I hate that hoe!
