Beyonce' Moves Up Billboard's Social 50
Skyrocketing 25-14 on Billboard's Social 50 chart, Beyoncé rallies to a new chart high with a 334% burst in new week-over-week plays on monitored social networks and 142% boost in views. The jump is owed to attention gained from her new single "Run the World (Girls)," the diva's first single from her forthcoming fourth studio album.
"Run the World" has earned 1.46 million YouTube views since its YouTube premiere April 21, and also lands at No. 33 on this week's Billboard Hot 100. As well, Beyoncé released a video in support of First Lady Michelle Obama's campaign against childhood obesity called "Move Your Body." While neither song is on Vevo, other Beyonce videos on the site did see a 340% surge in plays.
