How close is Drunk in Love

Based on Beyoncé's current certification pattern, and assuming that she will continue to certify only the tracks in dire need of attention when a new album is coming out, potentially Act 3/ 2024? 

 

Halo, Single Ladies, Crazy In Love are Tier 1

If I Were A Boy, Drunk In Love, 7/11 are Tier 2

Irreplaceable, Love On Top, RTW (G) are Tier 3.

Welcome to the Winner's Circle, Lil' Wayne. :clap3: 

 

RIP Static Major... one of the contributors to one of my favorite late 90s / early aughts remixes (usually an additional track next to the radio version of the single on physical singles for the youngins out there):

In other news, we're about to be FLOODED with a deluge of Diamond Drake singles, and potentially Views / Take Care as well. Watch this space.

Happy 2024 to you all.

 

Please welcome to the Winners' Circle: a 2004 club classic (Usher (Yeah!)), a 2017 hit that epitomized the Soundcloud tastemaker generation (Khalid (Young, Dumb & Broke)), and a 2017 modern wedding staple (Kane Brown (Heaven))!

 

(Thank you @Armani? for the Usher certification update)

 

A special shout-out to Kane Brown's Heaven, that essentially was the hit to secure his long-term career. To think he was holding a songwriting camp at a multi-floor studio, and heard this future smash being worked on on another floor to be shopped out to other artists playing through the floorboards. Talk about right place and right time.

A special shout-out to my fave "pop" karaoke song, BadGyalRiri's first SOLO Diamond song, and our first song from 2012 to make the winner's circle! 

 

 

Thank you, @Lovett
