Has Beyonce Officially Topped Destiny’s Child ?

Ever wondered about Beyonce’s success in comparison to Destiny’s Child ? According to Billboard, the “I Am…Sasha Fierce” diva has just about toppled records she set while belting “Independent Women” with Kelly and Michelle. While Beyonce and Destiny’s Child have only been household names for just over a decade, Beyonce is officially leading the race as a solo artist ! According to Billboard, the “Video Phone” singer has more Billboard Hot 100 no.1 singles than Destiny’s Child (5 to 4) and more Hot 100 top 10s than DC (14-10). She has also sold more digital songs than the group, a whopping total of 23.376 million in comparison to 4.353 million for Destiny’s Child. The latter is likely due to the fact that the digital age kicked into gear after “Writings On The Wall” and “Survivor”. While Beyonce is raking in digital sales and chart-topping singles, she does come up short in one area (at this point) — album sales. According to Nielsen Soundscan, Destiny’s Child is still ahead of Beyonce’s three albums (“Dangerously In Love,” “B-Day,” and “I Am… Sasha Fierce”), which total just over 11.2 million copies sold. Destiny’s Child has, as of this week, moved 16, 975,000 copies of albums including “Destiny Fulfilled”.
