Beyonce Through the Years

11 of 13

Another Album and a Baby

In June 2011, Beyonce released her fourth music album “4.” Beyonce became the third artist in history to have her first four albums peak at number one on the Billboard list. Later that year, Beyonce and Jay-Z announced at the MTV Video Music Awards that they were expecting their first child. Fans took to Twitter to react to Beyonce’s announcement; Twitter received a phenomenal 8,868 tweets per second, breaking the record of most tweets per second recorded for a particular event. The announcement broke another record of most-watched broadcast in MTV history, peaking at 12.4 million viewers. Her pregnancy also resulted in a sudden increase in her album sales. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
