Move over Taylor Swift, Beyonce is back to reclaim her pop queen crown.

The “Formation” singer has broken a US chart record after every track from her new album Lemonade reached the Top 100.

Beyonce is also the first female artist to have more than 12 songs in the Top 100 at once, beating Swift’s previous record of 11 in 2010.

“Formation” is the highest charter at number ten, followed by “Sorry”, “Hold Up” and “6 Inch” at numbers 11, 13 and 18. “Forward” is in the lowest place at number 63.

Beyonce is currently at number one in the UK and US with Lemonade, her sixth release and follow-up to 2013’s self-titled surprise.


Speculation has been rife as to whether or not the songs are about Jay Z cheating on her, with the likes of Rita Ora and Katy Perry feeling obliged to deny that they are “Becky with the good hair” by wearing ‘Not Becky’ badges at the Met Gala.

Many critics believe the rumours are a marketing ploy by the couple to attract more attention to both Lemonade and Tidal, the Jay Z-owned streaming service on which the album is exclusively streaming.
