Is Queen Bey losing her spot on the throne? After launching her Formation World Tour last week in Miami, the 34-year-old swiftly canceled an upcoming concert in Nashville.

The star's team failed to answer why she chose to pull the plug on such short notice, but speculation has mounted that the decision came after the Nashville show, unlike other cities, wasn't sold out.

Though Beyoncé earned her sixth no. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart for Lemonade, the album clocked in at just 653,000 copies sold, when it was projected to sell at least 1 million.

To make matters worse, it's a not-so close runner-up to both Adele's record-breaking album, 25, which sold 7.44 million copies last year, and Taylor Swift's 1989, peddling 3.66 million copies in 2014.

Meanwhile, rumors continue to swirl of Bey and husband Jay Z's troubled marriage, though Radar has exclusively learned the couple has come to a secret arrangement.

"They are never going to get divorced, there's too much money involved," an insider revealed to Radar. "Before, the press was just going with rumors and kept running with it and Beyoncé and Jay thought it would go away. Now they are feeding into it and using it."

Case in point: Beyoncé used her visual album as the perfect platform to vent frustrations over her relationship with Jay Z, 46. "Bey is definitely a woman scorned in her lyrics," noted the insider of Lemonade.
