500,000 Albums In 48 Hours

Music News | Beyoncé not only released a secret album, but she somehow managed to sell 500,000 copies of it in 48 hours.

In The New Yorker music critic Jody Rosen described Beyoncé as “the most important and compelling popular musician of the twenty-first century….. the result, the logical end point, of a century-plus of pop.” Beyoncé has continuously drawn comparison to Michael Jackson for her powerful stage presence and impact on the music industry, also being referred to as the “heir-apparent to Michael Jackson’s legacy”. In 2013, Beyoncé made the Time 100 list, Baz Luhrmann writing “no one has that voice, no one moves the way she moves, no one can hold an audience the way she does… When Beyoncé does an album, when Beyoncé sings a song, when Beyoncé does anything, it’s an event, and it’s broadly influential. Right now, she is the heir-­apparent diva of the USA — the reigning national voice.”
