Downloads and ringtones were nearly non-existent in Dangerously In Love years but the huge catalog appeal of its songs, most notably Crazy In Love, created an impressive 17,8 million sales.

Digital sales were starting to get relevant by the period of B’Day which benefited from this context to shift a huge 34,7 million singles with more than 11 million coming from Irreplaceable alone. This song sold over 3,5 million units in each downloads and ringtones in the US alone.

The format was reaching its peak when I Am… Sasha Fierce came out generating an unbelievable 50,7 million units including nearly 34 million from the history-making trio of smashes Singles Ladies – Halo – If I Were A Boy.

You got it, Beyonce is a massive digital seller. She managed these figures thanks to sub-par ringtones but also tremendous Asian success. Halo sold nearly 2,9 million in South Korea alone.

I‘m really curious to find out how her next solo album and its singles will perform on the charts. More mainstream oriented music or is she really over this? Surprise drop again (maybe in partnership with Netflix/Disney) or a traditional promo run with an upbeat lead single? Hopefully the Tidal exclusive drop is a thing of the past.
