Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child enjoyed a sales increase after performing at the Super Bowl this past Sunday.
Ironically, the top-selling song for DC3 was “Say My Name,” a song they didn’t perform. The big seller for Beyoncé was “Halo.”
Industry sources suggest that in the week ending Feb. 3, Beyonce’s digital album sales jumped by over 230%. Meanwhile, those of her group Destiny’s Child soared by more than 600%. That latter increase is inordinately large as it includes sales of the trio’s brand new “Love Songs” compilation, released last Tuesday. The set features one new recording, “Nuclear.”
The official numbers detailing how many units they girls moved won’t be out until next week.
In related news, former Destiny’s Child member Latavia Roberson gave her thoughts on Queen Bey‘s halftime show.
“Obviously, seeing Beyonce perform was the highlight for me,” Roberson, who departed Destiny’s Child in 2000, told Celebuzz Monday in an exclusive interview. “I got a real surprise when both Kelly [Rowland] and Michelle [Williams] both popped-up on the stage like that.
I thought they all looked great and did a good job with their dance moves,” she said. “Beyonce was especially amazing. She looked fabulous and her voice was really strong. During the performance somebody texted me to say they could not hear Kelly and Michelle sing. It was so noisy in the house where we watched the performance that I did not really notice anything wrong. But who knows? They probably had some technical problems.”
It’s nice to see there’s no bad blood between Roberson and Bey.
