According to Billboard magazine, the "Video Phone" debut on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop chart makes "I AM...SASHA FIERCE" the first album in a decade to yield six entries which include "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)", "If I Were A Boy," "Diva," "Halo," "Ego" and "Video Phone". Beyonce also extended her current lead to 13, for most top 10's on the Hot 100 Billboard chart by a female artist this decade when "Sweet Dreams" entered the chart at number eight.

On October 2, Beyonce was honored as Billboard magazine's Woman of the Year at a luncheon held in New York City.
