Their performance during the Super Bowl’s half time show Sunday has lead to increased sales for Beyonce Knowles and Destiny’s Child.
Although sales figures were not released, MTV reported that Beyonce’s album 4 jumped to #12 on the iTunes chart. #1s, which she recorded with her fellow Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, hit the #42 spot, while her first solo album, Dangerously in Love ranked at #45.
US Magazine reported that Beyonce nixed plans to use a specific hit song for the half time show at the last minute.
"They kept rehearsing with 'Bills, Bills, Bills,'" a source told the magazine. "And the band started talking about, 'How come they're not doing 'Bootylicious?'"
The insider explained that ‘Bills’ was deemed too slow for the trio’s performance.
After the show, Beyonce, 31, took to Instagram to thank her fellow music stars Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson, who also performed at the Super Bowl.
"What a proud day for African-American Women! Kelly, Michelle, Alicia, JHud…You are all beautiful, talented and showed so much class! It was an honor to perform at the Super Bowl with you phenomenal ladies. Love, Beyonce."
