Beyoncé Bags 40th Top 40 Hit with ‘Black Parade’

Wasting no time zooming to the top of real-time sales tallies (where it remained for days after its premiere), the Derek Dixie-produced bop came as a musical celebration of Juneteenth – the holiday designated to honor the end of slavery.

Now, her beloved fans – affectionately called the #Beyhive – have even more reason to celebrate as the updated Billboard Hot 100 reveals the tune has made a promising start.  Debuting at #37, the entry not only marks Bey’s 40th trip to that region of the chart since the start of her solo career in 2002 but also her 65th solo Hot 100 entry overall.
