Beyonce Misses Top 10 in 2011 for the First Time Since 1998

Bad news for Beyonce: The R&B queen failed to chart within the Top 10 this year, for the first time since Destiny’s Child began racking up hits in 1998. Then again, she shouldn’t feel too bummed about it — she’s been charting in Billboard’s upper echelons for an incredible 12 consecutive years, and with her Bey-by on the way, she has much to celebrate. And, as Yahoo! notes, this is merely an interruption to Beyonce’s winning streak, not an end to it – we’re sure that she’ll be back on top in 2012.

It wasn’t Beyonce’s best year, even though her album ’4′ was hailed for its artistic cohesion and unexpectedly alt influences. 4′ didn’t pack much potential for hit singles, with first offering ‘Run the World (Girls)’ peaking at a lackluster No. 29 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, followed by ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ only climbing to No. 16 — her highest chart success this year. Even if she currently has three tracks on the Hot 100, with ‘Party‘ at No. 57, ‘Countdown‘ at No. 91, and ‘Love On Top‘ at No. 94, this pales in comparison to some of her earlier smashes.

But with so many other accolades to be thankful for, Bey can’t be too pressed over this — and she’s said publicly that she’s not concerned with chart success and has made critical acclaim her top priority. It seems to be working — ’4′ was one of our top albums of 2011!
