We already knew King Bey’s new, surprise solo album would dominate the Billboard charts; it was only a matter of how well it would do. Well, Apple jumped the gun and announced that in the three days since its release Beyoncé’s self-titled new album “has become the fastest selling album ever on the iTunes Store worldwide with an unprecedented 828,773 albums sold in just its first three days.” The album also broke the US’ first week album sales record with 617,213, while going number one in 104 countries. Yikes.
Everybody, from the lowliest of struggle artist to the most successful act: she’s forcing your hand with this one. Who’s up to the challenge?
