Beyoncé has broken the Billboard Hot 100. Every single song from her just released album, Lemonade, appears on the newest edition of the weekly singles chart. Billboard reports, "Beyonce makes history: it's the first time that a female act has charted 12 or more songs on the Hot 100 at the same time, surpassing Taylor Swift's previous record of 11 (set on Nov. 13, 2010, sparked by the release of her album Speak Now). On Dec. 5, 2015, Justin Bieber bested Drake and the Beatles for the one-week record among all acts: 17 songs on the Hot 100 simultaneously, as his album Purpose debuted atop the Billboard 200."
Lemonade was released last week following the world Premiere of Beyonce’s HBO documentary. Of the 12 tracks, only "Formation" is not a debut. "Formation" was released back in February, just before Bee’s Super Bowl 50 halftime performance. Check out the placement of all 12 songs below:
