Ka Ching! The Beatles Made $68,286 Last Week from Beyonce’s Recording of “Blackbird,” Dolly Parton Did Better!


Beyonce placed 19 songs on the top 50 Song Streaming Revenue chart last week.

Hitsdailydouble’s chart shows that despite all the hits, the Queen Bey missed numbers 1 and 2. They went to Future and Hozier.

The Beatles — really Paul McCartney — made $68,286 from sales. They can go out to dinner!

Dolly Parton did better with Beyonce’s version of “Jolene” — she grabbed $105.091.

The numbers include downloads and streaming.

All the writers on Beyonce’s “Cowboy Carter” should send thank you notes to the singer. Even Stephen Stills got a taste of the $61,382 from “American Requiem.”

Since the list was compiled, the singles have dropped on the charts, with the exception of “Texas Hold ‘Em.” The album remains at number 2.

What if Beyonce did some TV appearances? She’s above that, but it would keep the action going. Wait til Taylor Swift’s album drops soon. We won’t be able to get away from her. That’s called marketing!
