All the controversy and publicity Beyonce’s new single “Formation” received propelled the song as her highest career debut on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart at No. 11 with 16.3 million in audience.
According to Nielsen Music, “Formation’s” debut even surpassed her 2008 mega-hit “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)”, which was her prior best debut at No. 20.
All this success, and the song isn’t even available for purchase yet!
