The John Rich single “Progress” remained atop the iTunes charts on Sunday, leading Queen Beyonce’s “Break My Soul.”
John Rich is beating Beyoncé on iTunes with far less promotion, puff pieces, and a record label. https://t.co/PMQIfCSlcI

Unlike Beyonce’s new album, Rich released his song without the backing of a major record label, without the fawning puff pieces, and without the hype across all social media platforms.
No one even called Mr. Rich beautiful or a God on the internet.
Instead, Rich released his song independently, first to Donald Trump’s social media app, Truth Social, and the video platform Rumble.
Rich shunned what he called “woke” record labels over fear of how an established label would promote a song with conservative themes. For similar reasons, Rich did not rely on Big Tech platforms:
“When I’m talking about them shutting down our voices, I’m talking about Twitter and YouTube and Facebook,” Rich said. “And I thought, you know what, I’m gonna reach out to Truth Social and reach out to Rumble because they still allow free speech over there.”
Rich sings about Jesus and patriotism, two topics the music industry finds very offensive. The entertainment critics prefer whatever it is Beyonce sings about these days.
So hood for him. It’s always good to see a media darling — and Beyonce is among the top — lose out to a disruptor often ignored by the GQ types.
And Rich topped Beyonce without a top-notch camera crew for his cover image. Who did it better?
Word is Beyonce has the edge in the cover photo category. Oh well — John Rich has the better song.

This warms the heart 😉
One word on the cover photo – skank.
Beyonce hates Whites just like her husband.
I’m sure her children will be so proud of that pic. Either way, Rich’s song is better.
Fake all around fake Beyonce. Look at that unnatural hair. Is that cultural appropriation of horses using their hair for the weave?
TV makes Beyonce look tall and nice but in reality she’s about 5 foot tall and if you saw her all you would think is “damn, that midget gal got an attitude.”
No offense to the guys that like the bigger ladies, but for me, she should put her clothes back on. She’s about 40 now right? Looks slutty and desperate.
Beyoncé used to be attractive. Now? Pretty skanky.
