Beyoncé also got a personal high for DSPs for her Renaissance album. The project album racked up 179M streams in its first week, marking the largest streaming week for a female artist this year. It’s also the largest amount of weekly streams of Bey’s career so far.
Beyoncé has also seen some negativity surrounding the album due to slur she had removed. She was also under attack from fellow artist, Kelis, when her single “Milkshake” was sampled for “Energy.” The drama saw Bey remove the sample immediately. However, she had nothing but love from Madonna with the “Queens Remix” for “Break My Soul.”
