Beyoncé’s ‘Run the World’ Makes Chart Debut

Beyoncé

Beyoncé returns to the charts with her first single of 2011. “Run the World (Girls),” the lead offering from the pop powerhouse’s fourth album, lands at No. 33 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

Additionally, the Major Lazer-sampled tune logged 77,000 downloads since arriving in the iTunes store last Thursday, bowing at No. 23 on the Digital Songs chart. On radio, Bey is getting some love, beginning at No. 65 on the Radio Songs chart with a respectable 18 million in audience.

The highly-anticipated video for the Switch-produced female anthem was shot over several days in California with director Francis Lawrence and will debut sometime in May.

Elsewhere on the Hot 100, Lady Gaga’s “Judas” drops two spots after debuting at No. 10 last week, while Katy Perry and Kanye West’s “E.T.” returns to the top for a fourth week.

    @Yeah, its crazy how if ur not doing pop and not doing what everyone else is doing then ur considered a flop.

    No other song out is like run the world..
    Cant wait for the video to silence all the nay sayers

    I am happy it didnt debut at the top like all the other ones though.. Real artist like adele and beyonce stay around longer than the ones who debut at the top.. case in point

    Born this way

    @justme, LOL yes we do sing songs like these still. and yes there IS in fact music that sounds like “Girls.” the song its ‘heavily sampled’ off of Major Lazer’s “Pon De Floor” as well as the song that originally had the idea to sample it with Diddy – Dirty Money’s “Ass On The Floor”

    @justme, please stop lying. U know if she debuted at #1 u woulndt say it. U sound so sad n desperate ur fave is failing. Btw debuted @ #1 n remained for 6weeks. It spent 2weeks at #5 after so quit it dumbass. People just dont wanna buy a ripoff pon de floor thats it.

    [Reply]

    justme Reply:

    @rezeed, omg ppl it says every where beyonce has sampled the song.. no one looking for excuses..

    Beyonce is not only based on singles so us stans are good were just statin the facts unlike u other fans that run behind these other artist that based their whole career off that one hit they had a couple yrs ago.. or songs that will be forgotten by next month..

    Instead of talkin crap u need to tell them to take a note from beyonce and stop releasin singles and put more work on performances.. I wonder how do u sound differently then u do on a record.. shade thrown at riri

    @k, Lmao at you pulling the race card. Beyonce is 1 of the most successful singers out there and has been an INTERNATIONAL star since Destiny’s Child. She’s had one of the most anticipated comebacks in 2010/2011 and i’m not even a stan and I know this. The only reason white listeners (or any race for that matter) aren’t “supporting” her is because this song is a mess…

    Glen Reply:

    @justme, I agree! so what if she sampled the song she made it better Major Lazer or what ever his name is far as I never Knew who the hell he was until beyonce used the beat and you have a million people talking about it. I’m a stand and I’m not saying this because i love her but I do feel like she needs more credit than shes getting just because shes doing something completely out her box risking her career for you phony fans and people. At least shes making pop sound different you got all these artists trying to do pop and it has all the same sound and it’s getting old so not only is bey making a new move but making a different sound to pop. Yall would be real upset if she came out doing the same shit again saying she needs to change so when she does yall get mad, AND YES she did sample someones song i mean i probably would to if I had to totally risk my career to do something I’ve never done or sound like in a song the song isa not a mess well to me its not. I used to be in love with gaga too but shes getting real old to me shes not even changing same Pop sound just gets uglier and crazier each time

    @LO, That’s because “Only Girl” debuted at #75 due to radio airplay. It climbed all the way to #3 when it was digitally released, before finally hitting #1! Beyonce disappointed with this “Pon Da Floor” Remix, and hardly anybody likes it.

    From Tokyo Reply:

    @frf, Words that should be revoked from use on the internet: “Epic” “Fail” (and particularly from black music sites:) “Flop”. Hmm… And you have used them all. I don’t care about the song or Beyonce, actually, but your lack of originality is annoying. Used to like to read comments to hear what people though about things and compare my views but it’s nothing but mindless hating and arguing about the SAME STUFF E-VER-Y-DAY!

    Never realized how bitter/pointlessly angry black folks are until I come on this site/other sites. I try to stay connected to what’s going on with my people since I’m all the way over here but it’s disappointing again and again. So much self-hate. Probably would be better to just stop reading any news/blogs regardless. You guys are really something else.

    Single Ladies initially debuted at no. 72 back in November 08. We all know what happened next.
    Check On It debuted at 72.
    Irreplaceable debuted at 87!
    She plays in a different category than Rihanna and Katy Perry for example (and I love them!!). These girls are about singles (which is GREAT). Beyoncé is def about album and awards (which is great too). You can’t have a flop in one week. Cmon yall.

    @Copyonce, Is that a serious question?? I suggest u go do ur hw on that topic .. Irreplacable was written as a country song and BEYONCE completely flipped the song to make it a lil more urban pop and when u do that (arrange and vocal production) u can take writing credits because there’s no such thing as flipping a song credits .. But I kno I’m talkin to someone who doesn’t kno shit about the industry so I’m happy to educate u =)

    @Copyonce, since when does ne-yo sings country? he wrote it for himself, and he regret giving it to beyawnce. Now who doesn’t know shit?

    Tc23 Reply:

    @Copyonce, omg plz jus stop like seriously do u even kno neyos history?? That was around the time 2006 wen he was tryin new sounds before he was strictly urban and he dipped into different styles which is how the dance pop song closer came .. He wrote irreplacable as country pop ballad during that process but beyonce wanted to make it a lil more urban to fit into her album .. I like coming on these music blogs because I write for my college paper on music and I dnt mind having friendly debates with ppl that kno what there talkin about but clearly ur just talkin out of ur ass goodbye

    LMAO Diana Ross has never won a grammy so please stop throwing up Beyonce has 16 like that matters……. this song SUCKS, the beat is repetitive and mediocre like the rest of her songs, and beyonce is nobody’s queen, just an overrated no personality having Texas hoodrat who gets into character as Sasha Fierce to give us LIFE…… deborah cox, kelly price, tamia, they all sound better then Beyonce.. she’s just marketed better thanks to her overruling father! she can’t act, nor dance, all she does is follow choreography and put her own southern twang in it… hush up bitches!

    All of you are idiots for comparing “Only Girl” to Beyonces flop “Run the worl”. “Only girl” leaves beyonces Run the world” in the dirt!!! Only Girl was and is one of the best Dance/pop songs.

DESPERATELY SEEKING A HIT, talking smack about a new genre? What, more noise to the 1200000th power???? LMFAOOOOOOOOO Bubble gum lyrics, not even Willow Smith would sing that mess. Beyodel is supposed to be raising the bar, not crawling under it. LMFAOOOOOOOOO So, why does she need a video? We are talking about Beyodel, the most overrated chick in the game. Who wants to see her dancing and popping her stuff. that’s played out. She better get on Gaga’s wagon again and try to get some recognition. LOL. She better pray Rihanna will feature on her album and hope RihannaNavy comes through. Or better yet, she better apologize to Britney for swagger jacking her style and ask her to jump on a collabo. LMFAOOOOO Beyodel is wackity, wack!!!! Singing that hood garbage.

    @rockwitu, Rihanna, and Britney has been a solo artist longer than Bey. So for them to just start “”running”" things is bad. Ask Nicki who she wanna work with, Ask Rihanna who she wanna work with, and Brit Brat. Who cares she Pops. Artist these days are tryna compete with whom has the darkest, nastiest lyrics. You could tell she is tryna void the euro-pop, and that bubble gum pop sound All those girls are going for. she’s not your typical Artist she’s BEYond them. Britney barely could hold a tune, nor could Katy, Rih, Nicki, eh and Gaga. Gaga only hope is the Gays, cause w/o them she would be a flop.

    Aaliyah Reply:

    @Tc23, Britney doesn’t have hype, Britney is the only one of these girls that isn’t promoting but still her songs went #1. And her album sales aren’t low she debuted at #1, next week she’s gonna be #2 and her album been 1 month out already. Smoke and mirrors don’t last forever? Her $1000 tickets is selling out in pre-sale bitches, I doubt if beyonce makes her tickets more expensive people are gonna buy it. I’m just saying, I’m a fan of Britney and I support beyonce.

  47. Billionaire

    No one is hating! Whether it’s Beyonce or Rihanna! But the Beyonce Fans are the reason her song debut @ #33! You continuously boast, place her on a pedestal so unachievable for other artists, & overgeneralize her status to the point that there’s no chance or room for no one else! Beyonce is among the greats without a doubt but not the best! I used to be among her #1 fans but because people symbolizes her achievements, talents, & status to the point that her name is right next to God, i diverted to other artists & clearly i’m not alone hence the newbies like (Rihanna’s, Katy’s, & Lady Gaga’d success that sky rocketed to the top faster than most!) We all know these ladies/artists are not amongst the best singers in the industry but they give they’re new & interesting, they even the level of the playing/battle field, they’re versatile, innovative & raise the level of creativity, originality & being diverse! Therefore, people are tired of Beyonce the queen & want someone else to share that same feeling with a different perspective in music!

    [Reply]

    Billionaire Reply:

    @Billionaire, and in addition, Beyonce’s new single isn’t as bad as everyone claim it to be! Honestly the song is relatively good, it’s creative, not so much original in terms of the sampled beat, it’s a dance record that goes through your body, her voice is very authoritative but friendly & genuine, & it’s the next women’s anthem with a positive message added to the collection of others! However, because of the people’s exaggerative placement of her status, people began to think negatively & act on their negative opinions/thoughts & diverted else where with the acknowledgement of a good single like her latest one! So my point is, that the only being to be literally the best is God, try to place anyone else on God’s level they fall or never again acknowledge for who they are & what they may offer whether (negative or positive attributes)! #Food-For-Thought!

    poisoni Reply:

    I’m not hating on B and I’m not a RiRi stan, but saying this had no promotion is false. It got tons and tons of promotion and buzz. People were talking about it and the internet was on fire when the video pics leaked. B didn’t promote the song herself, but everyone was buzzing and hyped for this. So with all do respect I think this was very highly anticipated. But we all know B’s song usually debut low and shoot up to the top so it’s all good.

    Aaliyah Reply:

    @poisoni, this. Britney’s second single is a good example of no promo, no buzz and it debuted at #20 selling 117,00 in 3 days. And it was leaked before it was released. In it’s second week it went #9 still no promo nothing selling 158,000 copies and it stayed steady without promotion. After 1 month it got a video.

I didn’t even get the hype wen britney was actually performing decently (she could never sing).. say what u want about beyonce but wen in front of us she gives 200 percent which is what I look for in an artist not someone who puts out a cd and have her fans promote it .. britneys one of the biggest hustlers in the game makin millions off of a talent she doesn’t have and doesn’t even seem to care enough to try and improve .. cuz I refuse to believe that these past couple years are the best she could do .. The bitch is only 29 she should be at the top of her game NOW but watever stans will stand for her no matter what but hey ur loyal just take a look at what ur being loyal too

I duno what her stans are clinging too

    Aaliyah Reply:

    @Tc23, of course it’s the first single and don’t tell me that bey’s first single wasn’t hype, because I saw tons of pictures and TTs which hold it against me didn’t have. And it debuted at #1 1 month before the video came out so it wasn’t the video. She’s the only artist out there that can get a song to #1 without promo.

    Aaliyah Reply:

    @Tc23, but I’m done here because if I have to start saying britney’s accomplishments I would take all day and this is after all beyonce’s news. I support her myself, I love her previous albums. I don’t like this song though hopefully the rest of the album is better, wish her nothing but success. :)

SOME OF U KEEP SAYING RIHANNA IS A SINGLES ARTIST IT’S SAD CAUSE LOUD IS SELLING EXCELLENTLY HER OTHER ALBUMS MAY NOT HAVE DONE WELL BUT SHE IS NO SINGLES ARTIST NO MORE. U ALSO SAY RIHANNA DOESN’T HAVE #1 ALBUM IN THE US WHO THE F CARES IF YOU CAN HAVE A #1 ALBUM WORLDWIDE?????

    The only reasons she didnt is because she either releases them around the xmas period and/or stiff competition.
