Those Billboard rules are only for the first 4 weeks of an album's release. Anything after 4 weeks, very low prices for albums will be tracked into Soundscan's system.
Uh oh. I could see this catching on. Labels will wait until the 5th week to discount the album to a couple of pennies in hopes of breaking a record. The sad thing is that people are using what would be a good deal for all the wrong reasons. I'm all for making digital albums much cheaper than they currently are, but don't do it to compete with another website or break a meaningless record.

Well, I completely disagree with this but I need for them to do this for Rihanna's new album, Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday (at 1.8M I need this to hit 2.0M) and Adele just for the heck of it.
Thinking he's achieving something arguing why Dolly Parton is less of a legend than Bey.

Approaching a song rhythmically, rather than melodically, is something synonymous with Beyonce/DC and probably her claim to fame in respects to the question being posed.Of course CIL pretty much popularized "Go-Go" in popular music. The only other notable "Go-Go" song prior to CIL is "Doin' The Butt", and that was 1988.
An argument could be made that Beyonce is the one who popularized the heavy Urban/Hip-Hop driven backing with R&B outside of the US. "Deja Vu", "Drunk In Love" (in time), and CIL just to name a few.
