Beyoncé has done it again. Beyoncé reaches another milestone as ‘Black Parade’ charts at number 37 on all-genre Billboard Hot 100. This is Beyoncé’s 60th top 40 hit, she is now tied with Michael Jackson with hits covering 3 decades.
‘Black Parade’ released on Juneteenth (June 19) and was ranked as the 100 most popular song of the week on The Hot 100 chart.
The song also clutched No. 1 on Digital Song Sales. ‘Black Parade’ received 7.8 million U.S. clicks in the week ending June 25. ‘Black Parade’ also debuted at No. 18 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
She secured her first top 40 hits with a feature on Jay-Z’s “’03 Bonnie and Clyde,” which shot to No. 6 in 2002. Seven of her singles have gone all the way to No. 1, including this year’s hottest song of the summer ‘Savage Remix’ by Megan Thee Stallion. This extended her No. 1 Hot 100 count to three decades: the 2000s, ’10s, and ’20s.
Michael Jackson had his top 40 runs from 1971’s “Got to Be There” through a feature on the Drake Scorpion cut “Don’t Matter to Me,” in 2018. Michael still has the most among any male act since the chart began in 1958. Like Beyoncé, Michael is a member of the Hot 100’s triple decade club with leaders in the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s.
Michael Jackson is Beyoncé’s idol and she wanted nothing more than to be just like him. Congratulations Beyoncé on reaching another milestone in your career.
