Beyonce’s ‘Beyonce’ Goes To #1…In 25 Different Countries

Published: Friday 13th Dec 2013 by David


‘Tuck yourself in, you better hold on to your teddy- Friday the 13th and Beyonce’s playing Freddy.’

It’s happened.

No more than 24 hours after its digital release, Beyonce continues to strike fear in the hearts of many a Pop Princess today, now that her new self titled LP has rocketed to the top of iTunes USA!

Chart check below!

Currently the highest selling LP in the country, ‘Beyonce’ nows sits atop iTunes USA and iTunes R&B’s album chart, snatching the top spot away from R.Kelly‘s ‘Black Panties’. 

As if that wasn’t enough to give Columbia Records cause to rejoice, the project now owns the #1 spot in 25 different markets- three of these, being Australia, France and Brazil. This, days before the project’s lead singles are sent to radio in a bid to push digital and physical copies of the release and secure the performer her first #1 single since 2008’s ‘Single Ladies.’

In other chart news, Jason Derulo‘s ‘Trumpets’ blows its way to #4 on iTunes UK’s singles chart, while Aloe Blacc‘s ‘The Man‘ sits pretty atop iTunes R&B- two spots above Sevyn Streeter‘s ‘It Won’t Stop’ which is perched 17 places above Ciara’s Gold certified smash hit, ‘Body Party’.

    I cant at everybody thinking that what Beyonce has done is groundbreaking!!! Lmao.

    Anyway, let me sit here and enjoy the delusions.


  16. Perry Power December 13, 2013

    Beyonce is changing the game! Who goes on tour before releasing new material? Who releases new material & videos with no warning, no promo, not even a tweet? Only Beyonce. I guess people will need new shade other than “Where is her single?”. This has been a great year, both of my girls are running the business!

  17. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 13, 2013

    Sam!you forgot to mention that it sold 80,000 FREAKING COPIES IN 24 FREAKING HOURS. @Slay_Hive bish,the f*** are you at?!? I need you here to check out this real slayage that has even the biggest of trolls bowing down as they f****** should!

  20. Mrs. Carter December 13, 2013

  21. Bey-Minaj December 13, 2013

    My rots are fighting for survival after being snatched so hard.

  22. RoyalKev December 13, 2013

    So proud of Bey! She’s just the epitome of a HARD WORKING, SUPER TALENTED artist that’s incredible and versatile in just about every way imaginable. Much sucess to her!

  23. B2B December 13, 2013

    STFU HO!!!!! Stay mad ho

  24. LOL December 13, 2013


  25. Rach December 13, 2013

    Call me when Gaga can do over 30 countries after 16 years^^^

  26. Tisha December 13, 2013

    And the Navy was riding hard with “Where’s her new album?”

    Smh, should have kept their mouths shut and enjoyed Rihanna’s reign cause B came back and killed it in one day.

  27. My Forehead Tho December 13, 2013

    66 Countries*

  28. Rach December 13, 2013

    72 countries. @lol im calling you.

  29. ADOU December 13, 2013

    OMG..BEYONCÉ is #1 in 72 countries, i’m sorry but it’s not been 24 hours.

  30. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 13, 2013

    Why are people underestimating the first week sales? Look at eminem- 74k copies in one day and he opened with over 700k. Bey will slay in the first week and you all know that. She is coming for that fifth no 1

  31. Beyonce will flop, give it few days December 13, 2013

    this album will flop.

  32. jay scorpio December 13, 2013

    To be the best is to compete against the best…. No one of importance has a new album out right now so this maybe another number 1 album for her but we will see what the 1st week sales will be like #SipsTea

  33. TAME December 13, 2013

    If beyonce cared so much about sales, she would have released this on Tuesday and not on Friday, however 80k in 3 hrs is still impressive.

  34. RIP Beyawance December 13, 2013

    She still boring as hell to me.

  35. Lets Get Real Barbz December 13, 2013


  36. Touché December 13, 2013

    Samantha this is NOT impressive whatsoever. It’s an expectation of any popular and well established artist( especially pop stars) to go 1# in several countries within the first and second week. Realize that all this hype is just going to lead into a huge disappointment especially with someone of her status. Sorry.

  37. UNEXPECTED SLAYAGE December 13, 2013

    Nicki who???? its funny because I know all the other popstars katy, rihanna, gaga, are scarmbnling n having melting with their pr teams right now!! Lmfao its funny cuz i kno she did diss ish on purpose she let these bicthes think they was doin somethin then BOOM came n snatched them all up outa nowhere!!!
    God please let nicki have half the slayage I feel like if they collaborated on something it would b EPIC!!!!!

  39. Beyond Amazing (Cause Bey really is!) December 13, 2013

  40. WhatInThe?! December 13, 2013

  41. WhatInThe?! December 13, 2013

    I’m glad she did this to the music industry. It was needed. Step it up producers!!!

  42. WhatInThe?! December 13, 2013

    No more quick hits lmao!!!

  43. Queen Bey 2014 December 13, 2013

    I praise Beyoncé for releasing an album by surprise. She is focusing on nothing but the music. No media, no press, no hype, no 10 second previews. She is releasing it as a whole to re establish the beauty, the importance and the sincerity of her musical vision. She is an inspiration to everyone. Go Beyonce, Do your thing, cause it’s working and your making history.
    With no promo at all, “Beyonce” is on it’s way to the #1 spot on billboard 200. Now that’s how you do it. A real pop legend.

  44. ‘Yonce’ f****** flawless ‘ December 13, 2013

    In your dreams (it will flop) but you know what it comes to a time where you have to wake up and face reality

  45. Lily December 13, 2013

    I sorry for Ciara who have a self-titled Album like Beyonce. Beyonce just finished her. Poor CiCi try again but it won’t work.

  46. FutureCIARA December 13, 2013

    340k in just 13hours……… You girls are only dragging yourselves!!!!!!

    This is a platinum album debut!!

  47. NAVY COMMANDER December 13, 2013

    Hmm chile wait until sales come out then we can talk

  48. cocobutta December 13, 2013

    The message in PRETTY HURTS must make it a single right.

    Make smart choices but the GREAT thing with this project is it caters to pop & urban

  49. Meagan Kaschel August 31, 2014

    Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks
