In an era filled with countless propaganda Pop stars, authentic megastars are a hard find.
However, shining bright like a diamond above all is Beyonce.
Currently riding high following her surprise return to the charts last month, the diva’s fortunes looks set to increase this next week. Find out why after the jump…
According to Hits Daily Double, the “visual LP” – which arrived with 17 videos upon release on December 13th– is on course to return to the top of the Billboard 200 with sales in the ball-park of 80,000 -85,000. A feat it’s set to achieve in as it heads into its fifth week of availability.
#1 for three consecutive weeks, the album took a momentary vacation from pole position this week, dropping to #2 – allowing Disney’s discounted ‘Frozen’ soundtrack to rocket to the top of the tally.
To date, ‘Beyonce’ has sold 1.43 million copies in the US alone – besting the total American sales of 2011’s ‘4’. A figure that’ll likely trend upwards as the singer’s promotional campaign intensifies.
More power to her.
