This is good news for Beyonce. It means her people are behind her no matter. Security is the last thing most aritsts have this industry.
We considered Beyonce's inital sale numbers for 4 disappointing, but apparently, her label doesn't agree with us. Ron Stringer, Columbia/Epic Label Group's Chairman, exclaimed that the label is nothing but thrilled by the way the album has performed so far. In fact, he calls the sales "vindication" against those who said she was poised to fail. He explains:
"All the speculation that gets around is frustrating when it's just not true. The story about us being unhappy with the record and stuff is just not true. There's never been any doubt or conversations about moving the record or changing it… Those conversations never existed. We're really, really happy with it … We thought the record is great from the beginning, and some of the stuff that is happening now is vindication of it."
If you guys are happy, and Queen B is happy and no one is complaining that her last album sold better, than we guess it's all good!
