Beyonce is well on track to set records for the biggest album of her career!
Her self-titled LP, Beyonce, released in December 2013, has officially sold 1.43 millions albums in the United States alone. These sales figures surpass the lifetime sales of her previous album, 4, which has sold 1.39 million copies to date.
Since its release, Beyonce holds the record as the fastest selling album ever on iTunes. It sold 617,000 units in its “first week,” which was actually 3 days after the surprise release. From there, the album held steady at the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 charts for 3 weeks.
Even as Beyonce slides out of the #1 Billboard spot, its album sales continue to grow steadily.
Of her previous studio-released albums, “I Am… Sasha Fierce” (2008), “B’Day” (2006), and “Dangerously In Love” (2003), all hit #1 on the Billboard charts, selling 3.12 million, 3.36 million, and 4.91 million albums, respectively.
