Beyoncé Takes Over Arcade for Album Release Party

Beyoncé

Now that the hard work has paid off, it’s time to celebrate. With her album No. 1 worldwide, Beyoncé let loose at a private party at Dave & Buster’s in New York following her concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

While Mr. Carter was overseas for a gig of his own, Mrs. Carter was joined by some of her closest friends and collaborators including model Jessica White, stylist Ty Hunter, designer Alexander Wang, Luke James, J. Cole, and Drake.

At one point, the Toronto MC got on the turntables and addressed the crowd. “I just came out tonight to let you know congratulations to each and every one of you that worked on this shit, for real,” said Drizzy, who collaborated with Bey on “Mine.” “And of course to the queen, the utmost congratulations.”

Guests had a ball as they played arcade games (including Bey’s favorite Connect 4), sipped drinks from their very own Beyoncé cups, and snacked on Beyoncé cake and cupcakes. They even gave out light-up bows like the ones seen in the “XO” video. As “Drunk in Love” blared from the speakers, Bey danced along.

“With the queen. @beyonce I’m so proud of you,” tweeted Jessica White, who makes a cameo in the video for “XO.”

Earlier in the evening, Madonna was spotted at Bey’s show. “Mercy James gets a big fat one from the Queen. B !” wrote Madge after her daughter got a kiss from Bey.

    @marie, bitch stop playing. Dave and Buster’s is targeted to adults!! Check any commercial or print ad! They sell alcohol for fucks sake!

    Your arms must be sore from all that damn reaching.

    And further more being sexual means you can’t have fun? Your sexual hang ups run so deep. Seek help.

    SLAYYYYY*~*

    Had to Google who Jessica White was. I swear my teacher’s right. Every time a person has the last name White or Black, they’re always the opposite skin color of their last name. I honestly thought, for once, Jessica White, was actually white.

    You can tell this party was boring. Keeping it real. Beyonce is not the first person to get 1million records in 1 week and she will not be the last. Does Taylor Swift come to mind? Plus the 1 million is ww sales…not US sales. I think people are making the headlines more than what they lead. Oh congrats beyonce for pumping your fanbase and having them cover a portion of the money you owe to Pepsi and 100M lawsuit you will have to pay for breaking the contract.

    @Nunofyobusiness, Beyonce sold worldwide… Taylor Swift sold only in the US.. HA! You just praised the gloriness of Queen Bey!

    Nunofyobusiness Reply:

    @Sushi, no dumb arse…that means Taylor Swift did it alone in the US yielding even far more sales ww, example 1.5million.

    @Nunofyobusiness, Calling names? Already? I’m winning? Ha! Taylor Swift could only sell through a crowd in the US.. but Bey reached out to millions overseas. Ha!

    @Sushi, I call it as I see it. Beyonces 600k in US sales is nothing to go crazy about.

    @Nunifyobusuness, Yeah, and there’s nothing about Taylor Swift selling millions in the US, when it’s not overseas
