Do you know how many tour dates Rihanna played in 2011? How many words are in Cheryl's album titles? Test your knowledge in Capital's Hit Music exam.
Both Beyonce and Jay-Z have matching Roman numerals on their wedding fingers, their daughter's middle name is a reference to this number, which also happens to be the date of both Beyonce and Jay-Z's birthdays and wedding anniversary. Beyonce is so convinced of the magic of this particular number that she even named her most recent album after it...
Beyonce was born on 4th September, while her husband Jay-Z celebrates his on 4th December, and her mother too was born on the 4th. The pair married on 4th April and had IV tattooed on their wedding fingers to symbolise the date. It has been suggested that their daughter Blue's middle name 'Ivy' was chosen as a reference to these Roman numerals. No surprise then that when Beyonce wanted to add a splash of luck to her new album, she opted for the title '4'.
Rihanna's 'Loud' tour was her most successful to date, with the Barbadian singer performing in 20 countries in support of her fifth studio album. The production grossed $90 million from 1,200,800 ticket sales. But how many shows did Rihanna perform throughout the year?
RiRi averaged around 2 shows per week throughout 2011, as well as managing to squeeze in her first feature film and her sixth studio album 'Talk That Talk'.
Cheryl Cole has recently released her third studio album. What sum do you arrive at if you add up all the numbers from her three album titles?
Cheryl's first album '3 Words' and her most recent, 'A Million Lights' are the only two of her studio albums to feature numbers in the title.
Clue: one track from 'Believe' and one track from 'Under The Mistletoe' can we written out using combinations of these three letters.
The album track 'Fall' is taken from Justin Bieber's 2012 album 'Believe', while Christmas track 'Fa La La' is from the Canadian's 2011 album 'Under The Mistletoe'.
Which artist is being described in the above equation?
The EP 'No. 5 Collaborations Project' was the record which brought Ed Sheeran to mainstream attention. He quickly followed it up with his debut album '+' (pronounced) 'Plus'.
