*Despite the apprehension by some over Beyonce’s “4” album, it’s already gone platinum.

“Thank you to all the fans that purchased the album. We hope you’re enjoying it as much as we are,” Beyonce said on her official website.

Only five weeks after its release, the album rose to #1 on Billboard’s top 200, selling over 300,000 copies in the first week.

While she’s making hits, her former fellow group member, Kelly Rowland is finally past her “frustration point.”

She shared recently that she knows and has accepted that she will always be compared to Beyonce.

“That is my sister. I love her incredibly,” Kelly told Gayle King. “It gets frustrating, but I’ve been through that frustration point and out of it now ’cause I know I’m standing in my own light,” the “Motivation” singer said
