…and the good news keeps on coming!
Well, that is if you consider a fan of Pop Queen Beyonce.
One of the millions who purchased her latest self-titled CD?
Find out how you helped the entertainer outperform herself after the jump!
Four weeks after its release, the ‘Drunk In Love‘ backed ‘Beyonce‘ has gone a long way to prove the star stands as her only competition, by outselling her 2011 release ‘4’!
“Beyonce” sold 130,000 copies in the week ending January 5, 2014, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That brings its cumulative sales sum up to 1.43 million — hopping over the total of “4,” which stands at 1.39 million.
The latter album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 310,000 in its first week. It then held at No. 1 for a second frame, selling 115,000. In its second and third weeks, it moved 72,000 and 53,000, respectively.
To compare, “Beyonce” debuted at No. 1 with 617,000 in its first chart week (which actually reflected only its first three days of sales), and then moved 374,000 and 310,000 in its second and third weeks at No. 1.
Beyonce’s three previous studio albums, “I Am…Sasha Fierce” (released in 2008), “B’Day” (2006) and “Dangerously In Love” (2003), all hit No. 1, and have sold 3.12 million, 3.36 million and 4.91 million, respectively.”
Quite interestingly, despite its November 2012 release, Rihanna‘s well received ‘Unapologetic‘ now finds itself cowering in the shadows of the aforementioned chart topper.
Yes, rather unfortunately for the singer’s fans, their inability to push its US sales past the 1.2 million mark has seen it body slammed by ‘Beyonce’, which has now sold more units in one month than it has sold in over one year.
