My bff in my head Beyonce Knowles-Carter and her hubby Jay-z was recently took the number 1 spot on “Billboards Power 100 List”.
The Carters continue to dominate the industry by changing the game and the way their fans receive their music.
Leveraging their star power to release new albums in unprecedented ways—Jay Z through Samsung and Beyoncé through iTunes—they instantly changed how the industry and fans thought about interacting with music. He gave his album away; she charged a premium price for hers. But they both used the element of surprise to restore the excitement that used to accompany a new release, before that impact was dulled by the endless thunder of carefully plotted promotion.
In short, they proved that content truly is king. Or, in this case, king and queen
Beyonce surprised her fans by dropping her self-titled visual album, which turned out to be the 8th highest selling album in 2013 in less than a month. Jay-Z’s partnership with Samsung for his “Magna Carta” album allowed him the opportunity to sell 1 million copies in 5 days… Jay Z and Beyonce is definitely one powerful couple…..
Congrats to King Bey and King Hov!!!!
