Beyonce’s “4” album may not draw as many sales or release as many hits as her previous records, but she’s not worried. In fact, “4” wasn’t created to be a hit-making machine; it was created because Bey wanted to make a cohesive album that was “one body of work.”

“This album was a labor of love. It was not about singles. I felt like the emotion and live instruments and just soul (were) missing out of the music industry, especially the popular music that’s out. I wanted to bring it back to the music I grew up listening to. It’s like a mixture of the ’90s and the ’70s and rock-n-roll,” she told Reuters.

Let’s face it: “Run The World (Girls)” and “Best Thing I Never Had” haven’t performed as well as her other lead singles like, “Crazy In Love” and “Single Ladies,” but has that stopped you from buying “4”?
