ITunes sales jumped after the performance. Beyonce’s most recent album, 4, saw the biggest increase in sales, rising to #12 on the iTunes album chart. The Destiny’s Child hits album was at #42, followed by Dangerously in Love. 2008’s I Am…Sasha Fierce deluxe edition came in at #60.

Playlist: The Very Best of Destiny’s Child came in at #68 and the original version of I Am…Sasha Fierce came in at #79. Sixteen singles blew up the iTunes singles charts, led by “Halo” (#17), “Crazy in Love” (#37), "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)," (#39), "Love On Top," (#55), "Say My Name" (#96), "Baby Boy" (#101), "End of Time" (#104), "Independent Women, Pt. 1," (#109), "Bootylicious," (#112), "Run The World (Girls)," (#129), "If I Were A Boy," (#141), "Countdown," (#147), "Irreplaceable," (#148), "Survivor" (#157), "Dance For You" (#187) and "Jumpin' Jumpin'" (#192).

The halftime set list included several of Beyonce’s most popular songs, as well as some of Destiny’s Child greatest hits like “Independent Woman” and “Bootylicious,” according to MTV News.

Beyonce changed the halftime set list at the last minute, Us Weekly reports. “Bills, Bills, Bills” was rehearsed, but was too slow and didn’t mix well with the rest of the set.

“Bootylicious was a better way to introduce the girls with their names. It worked so much better,” says a source.
