Beyonce is the first artist to have every song off their new album debut in the Hot 100.


Beyonce is the first woman to chart 12 songs simultaneously on the Hot 100.

The record was previously held by Taylor Swift with 11 songs, but Bey’s visual album Lemonade resonated so astoundingly well with consumers, it placed every track on the chart. Unlike 2013’s self-titled album, the “Sorry” singer made each individual song available for purchase on iTunes.

Last December, Justin Bieber claimed the overall record thanks to Purpose. He scored 17 songs on the chart at once.

No. 10, “Formation”
No. 11, “Sorry”
No. 13, “Hold Up”
No. 18, “6 Inch,” featuring The Weeknd
No. 28, “Don”t Hurt Yourself,” featuring Jack White
No. 35, “Freedom,” featuring Kendrick Lamar
No. 37, “Pray You Catch Me”
No. 38, “All Night”
No. 41, “Daddy Lessons”
No. 43, “Sandcastles”
No. 47, “Love Drought”
No. 63, “Forward,” featuring James Blake

New reports claim Beyonce’s label sent “Sorry” off to radio, and it’s largely due to its exceptional performance. Aside from “Formation,” it was the most streamed Lemonade song in the U.S. with 14.2 million streams. However, “Hold Up” was the most downloaded new song with 123,000 sales. The vibey “6 Inch” collaboration with The Weeknd was the third-most streamed song with 12.2 million and 99,000 in sales.

As we previously reported, Lemonade sold 653,000 equivalent album units in its opening week and debuts at No. 1, making Beyonce the first artist ever to have their first six records open at No. 1.
