Where is it[edit]

This article really dont have any source. So short attempt.

Where's the charts? Did it make to charts? BritandBeyonce 12:27, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

The page needs a description and photo of each video[edit]

This article is a stub, so therefore it needs a description and a photo for each video. I'm still learning how to put up photos and how to make articles, so if somebody could beat me to it, that'd be great! Stopitplease92 00:41, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

I took care of it. now it looks way better and it's educational! Ratizi1 21:58, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
Thanks! I just added more info to Get Me Bodied, Beautiful Liar,and Upgrade U (from their main pages). They all need summaries too. I'm going to work on those next. Stopitplease92 19:50, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
Fine but don't use the exact same wording. at least make it interesting and original. Ratizi1 19:39, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Singles Chronology[edit]

i dont know why but while ive been on vacation the order of all of beyonces singles have been rearranged. ive fixed it according to all the actual release dates. 20:05, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

Not an exclusive anymore[edit]

ok, i found this at brandsmart with a different info sticker. it has all the same videos, except for 'still in love'. added is a feature called 'ultimate performer' and a beyonce poster. Stopitplease92 16:49, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Page move[edit]

This page was moved from B’Day Anthology Video Album to B'Day Anthology Video Album because apostrophes are given as a typewriter apostrophes ( ' ) rather than a typographic apostrophes ) in Wikipedia articles and page names (compare D'Artagnan, D'Hondt method and Tess of the d'Urbervilles). --Bwiki 11:17, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

  • exlusively -> typo
  • exlusively at -> through
  • Knowles shot nine videos for the album, with four other videos having already been filmed. -> a bit repetitive
  • has been awarded -> its not really an award, its a certification of authenticity for said amount of shipments
  • denoting?
  • Outside of North America, -> seems a bit biased and too focused on the US, perhaps "internationally"
  • That gives the impression that it was worldwide ie everywhere including North America Adabow (talk · contribs) 22:06, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
  • the album featured as a bonus disc
  • Lol, maybe "the album was featured as a bonus disc" :P--CallMeNathanTalk2Me 00:02, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
  • The "Still in Love (Kissing You)" video featured a cover of a song by Des'ree and, due to a lawsuit, only initial pressings of the album contain its video. -> a bit lost here


  • Knowles said that she filmed B'Day Anthology Video Album -> she didn't film it, she compiled it. They were already filmed for other purposes
  • Only four videos were already filmed, the other nine were filmed especially for the album
  • do not have to log on to YouTube to watch her music videos, but instead can play them via DVD -> would not. Also, could be worded better
  • This section could benefit from a basic c/e. The sentencing is a bit choppy
  • According to Vibe, the shooting of the thirteen videos included on the album means that Knowles holds the record of the most music videos released in a twelve-month period. -> bad sentence


  • Released, released. -> try to avoid repetitive wording in the same sentence
  • Again
  • The video album featured as the second disc on international copies of B'Day Deluxe Edition albeit without the behind-the-scenes,[9] while Irremplazable was the bonus disc in the United States. -> multiple issues. Aside from the poor wording, this is the first time I have read here about Irremplazable. It needs some form of introduction
  • Prior to its release, copies of the videos were ripped from an advance album and leaked onto the internet in MP4 form.[11] promoted the album by appearing on television shows -> fix
  • Any sources for the appearances?
At the end of the sentence
  • marking shipments of two million copies. -> Ummmm, don't you mean 200,000
  • Oops, I thought that figure was surprisingly high. Adabow (talk · contribs) 22:06, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Marking doesn't really fit here


  • Main article: Kissing You (Des'ree song)#Lawsuit -> fix
  • Usually we don't have it like that. If I link the MC version of "I'll Be There", I won't have it come up with the asterisk.--CallMeNathanTalk2Me 00:05, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
  • a video for the song to include on -> the tense is weird.


  • Any positions for a video chart in the US?
  • No, I could only find three relevant Billboard issues on Google Books, but I'll ask Legolas to do a search. Adabow (talk · contribs) 22:06, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
