Pop superstar Beyoncé has rocketed to the #1 slot on the Billboard Dance Single Club Play chart with “Diva,” the latest single from her best-selling I AM…SASHA FIERCE album. Beyoncé’s sister Solange is closely following her sibling on the same chart with her own hit single — “T.O.N.Y.” — at #11.

Released as a digital download and CD single on January 20, 2009, “Diva” has already been certified as a Gold ringtone by the RIAA.

An audacious video for “Diva,” lensed by acclaimed director Melina Matsoukas, premiered on iTunes on December 22 in tandem with the video for “Halo,” the third single from I AM…SASHA FIERCE.

Cowritten and produced by Beyoncé, the irresistibly hypnotic dance track provocatively redefine “Diva” as the “female version of a hustla.”

After reaching #5 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart, “Diva” bulleted up the Hot 100 to #19, earning Beyoncé her 16th Top 20 single. A genuine crossover success, “Diva” has reached #2 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, #3 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and #19 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“If I Were A Boy,” the first single from I AM…SASHA FIERCE, held down the #1 spot on the Billboard/iLike digital chart for 16 straight weeks, the longest run in the history of the chart.
