France Album Sales: Beyonce

Beyonce (2013) Era

The surprise release of Beyonce eponymous album just before Christmas 2013 took the US by storm. It wasn’t that much of a storm in France yet as the set debuted at #24. Considering sales needed on Christmas week to rank at this position yet the album debut wasn’t as bad as it first looked. An illustration of how incredible sales are at this time of the year, despite charting only two weeks in 2013 and at positions 24-27, the set was #122 in the year end chart with 44,000.

Drunk In Love lead single slowly climbed to #9 position during 2014 and ended as one of her biggest hits with an impressive 58 weeks charted. Although remaining singles haven’t sustain the album as well it still was the #93 seller of 2014 with 53,000 units.

WoW she had abysmal sales in France I wonder how she managed to make few stadium tour there I think she was more a popular celebrity than a selling artist here


I fail to see how IASF sold 150k in France. You should break it down.


I didn’t know you had new website. It’s great to see your estimation again.
Good job.

She is too big to be compared with GWEN STEFANI ??? LOL

Beyoncé funny but remains simply a gay icon, Gwen Stefani is it inovatrice in the field of music as in fashion, you can not compare what is not comparable


George Micly’s comment is delusional in every possible way! LOL… No offense!


Maybe shes too big to be compared to Gwen Stefanie. However, her sales worldwide (Out of the US, UK, Canada) isnt that impressive either. Selling less than 200k in a big market such as France is nothing impressive. Her sales in Germany is dreadful as well. Her sales in Japan is just OK, but definitely not one of the biggest star there. So for you to compare her with Gwen Stefanie out of the blue is really weird. The fact you choose Gwen Stefanie, a singer who is not really that well known worldwide, is kinda funny. Why not compare… Read more »


HAHAHAH Beyoncé’s career is 10x bigger than Gwen’s (even tho i love gwen). The fact that B’day, an underperformance outsold and was a bigger era (WW) than Gwen’s L.A.M.B. should say everything.


R&B is not popular in France lmfaoo
