Beyonce, Destiny's Child get big post-Super Bowl bumps on iTunes
Ray Lewis and Oreo weren’t the only winners to come out of Super Bowl XLVII.
After delivering a nearly universally beloved performance at the halftime show last night, Beyoncé and her fellow
X-Men Destiny’s Child colleagues scored big boosts on the charts today.
At the time of this post, a bevy of Bey albums and singles, as well as a handful of Destiny’s Child releases, have rocketed up to the list of iTunes’ top downloads.
Beyoncé’s 2009 single “Halo,” a prominent part of the singer’s performance last night, currently rests at No. 17, while the even older “Crazy in Love” climbed to No. 37. “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” meanwhile, snagged a spot at No. 41, “Love on Top” shot to No. 54, and Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name” hit No. 94. On Feb. 2, none of those songs were in the top 100.
Also significant is the jump made by Beyoncé’s most recent LP, 2011’s 4, which went as high as No. 12 on the iTunes albums chart; the album’s deluxe edition is at No. 53. Her 2003 debut Dangerously In Love is currently at No. 47, the deluxe edition of 2008’s I Am (Sasha Fierce) is at No. 59 (the normal version is perched at No. 71), and B’Day went to to No. 106.
As for Destiny’s Child albums, the compilation #1’s went to No. 43, Playlist: The Very Best of Destiny’s Child climbed to No. 66, the newer collection Love Songs went to No. 95, and 1999’s The Writing’s on the Wall rose to No. 105.
Elsewhere, Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide,” which soundtracked a memorable clydesdale-starring ad for Budweiser last night, found itself at No. 49 today.
Of course, none of these no-names are any match for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, whose “Thrift Shop” is still holding down the title for the No. 1 song in America.
