Beehive Buzzes Beyonce Country Song “Texas Hold ‘Em” to Five Top Spots on iTunes Top 100, Knocks Kanye off Chart



Beyonce has all top 5 spots on the iTunes top 100. Four of them are different versions of “Texas Hold ‘Em.” One is “16 Carriages.” They are each Beyonce’s advance singles from her “Act II” album, coming next month.

The Beehive is buzzing! They contacted each other on social media, and stuffed the iTunes ballot box. Very smart: they’ve learned from other fan bases how to get their star to the top!

Part of the drive was to keep Kanye West away from the top of the charts. It worked. Kanye’s record, “Carnival,” dropped off the chart completely after spending one day on it. No “Vultures” tracks are on the chart at all despite the bragging by its creator. (The album is top 5 on the albums charts.)

Some blog wrote yesterday that the country turn was a bad idea for Beyonce. Hmmmmm…
