Beyoncé’s ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’ Logs Fourth Week at No. 1 In U.K.

Beyoncé’s “Texas Hold ‘Em” (via Columbia/Parkwood Ent) is still the one to beat in the U.K., where it clocks a fourth consecutive week at No. 1.

That’s a personal best streak for Bey, improving on the three-week peaks of 2003’s “Crazy In Love” with Jay-Z and 2007’s “Beautiful Liar” with Shakira. It also bests the two No. 1 singles she earned as a member of Destiny’s Child — 2000’s “Independent Women” and 2001’s “Survivor,” which both logged one week at the top.
