Beyoncé’s Earns Sixth Number One Album For ‘Lemonade’

blame it on JES7 May 1, 2016

When Beyoncé premiered her surprise album Lemonade on HBO last week, the Bey hive and roughly 98% of the Internets lost their collective minds. The conceptual visual album received high praise from fans across the globe, with some making the proverbial “this is a classic” statements, despite being out for less than a day.

After sitting on TIDAL for 24 hours, Bey made the album available on iTunes and Apple Music — a smart move, unlike Kanye’s original plan to keep TLOP as a “TIDAL exclusive.”

Today, Billboard reports that Lemonade has reached number one, marking the sixth album of her’s to reach this status. According to Nielsen Music, Lemonade has sold roughly 653,000 since its April 23rd release, trailing behind Drake’s VIEWS which has sold over 600K copies in one night.
