Beyonce taking the world by storm: Triple Crown (No 1 Movie, No 1 Single, 9th Grammy)

A Triple Crown Week for Beyonce
Tuesday February 14, 1:23 pm ET

R&B/Pop Music Icon Wins Grammy, Tops Hot 100, & Stars In Nation's #1 Box Office Film


NEW YORK, Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The past seven days have comprised a triple crown week for the record-breaking multi-platinum pop music superstar Beyonce.

The iconic performer took home her 9th Grammy Award on Tuesday, February 7; watched her latest single -- "Check On It" -- top the Billboard Hot 100 for the third week in a row; and, over the weekend, saw her latest film, "The Pink Panther" starring Steve Martin and Beyonce, become the nation's #1 box office sensation as it took in $20,220,412.00 in movie theatres across the country.

Beyonce's new single, "Check On It," featuring Slim Thug and co-produced by Beyonce and Swizz Beatz, is the artist's third single to hit the #1 slot on the Hot 100 (following "Crazy In Love," featuring Jay-Z and "Baby Boy," featuring Sean Paul, both from 2003). "Check On It" originally appeared on the top-selling Destiny's Child album, #1's, released in October 2005, and may be heard in the end credits of "The Pink Panther." A new video remix of the song, directed by Hype Williams, includes a rap by Bun B and clips from "The Pink Panther." With three consecutive weeks at #1 on the Hot 100, "Check On It" is 2006's most successful single to-date.

On February 7, "So Amazing," Beyonce's duet with Stevie Wonder (from So Amazing -- An All Star Tribute To Luther Vandross) took home the Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals trophy, bringing Beyonce's lifetime Grammy total up to nine. She'd previously won five Grammys as a solo artist in 2003 and three as for her work as a founding member of Destiny's Child, one of the world's best-selling -- and most influential -- female vocal groups of all-time.

Beyonce Knowles made her acting debut in 2001 in the made-for-television production "MTV's Hip Hopera: Carmen." A year later, in 2002, she co-starred as "Foxxy Cleopatra" opposite Mike Myers in "Austin Powers In Goldmember," cited in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the Highest Box Office Comedy Film Gross ($71.5 million over first three days). 2003 saw Beyonce appearing with Cuba Gooding Jr. in the gospel-music inspired family film, "The Fighting Temptations." Beyonce's latest film project, currently in production, is the movie version of the hit musical "Dreamgirls, slated for release on December 22, 2006.

Yeah, Let's Get Loud for Best Dance Song in 2000, Waiting for Tonight for that same category in 2001.

CHECK ON IT is only #1 because the record label paid for it to be.

I doubt it. Beyonce has had a much stronger musical legacy than J-Lo ever has, especially before her current cinematic success. This isn't also the first time Beyonce has had box office success, with Austin Powers being an enormous hit.

Another factor in Beyonce's favour for longevity and success is the fact that she's feted and loved by both fans and critics. J-Lo has never had the backing of critics.

I agree with most of what you're saying, but, critics have panned The Pink Panther....and Dangerously In Love didn't get rave reviews. A big part of it's success was the great promotion. And 20 million in one week isnt that great, is it?

Yes. But the movie has received a positive rating by 84% of people who have watched the movie. 20 million in one weekend is not a big figure, however analysts state that the snow storms currently occuring have impacted heavily on that figure and this weekend is up almost 1 million on the same weekend last year. Dangerously in Love was not universally liked, however Beyonce was feted for her voice and her inventive presentations. The Grammy voting public certainly liked it.

She's pretty, talented, loved by all, and has incredible thighs
that scream "kiss me squeeze me", but there's just
something about her that puts me off.

Still, I applaud her because that's quit an accomplishment.
