After setting an iTunes record, selling more than 800,000 copies of her fifth album, Beyoncé, in three days, Billboard has confirmed what we already knew, that Beyoncé has the nation’s number one album.
This is another record broken, Beyoncé is now the first woman whose first five albums all hit number one.
Not only has every single one of Beyoncé’s albums hit the number one spot, Dangerously in Love, B’Day, I Am… Sasha Fierce, 4 and now Beyoncé all debuted at number one.
The only other person whose first five albums all debuted at number one is DMX.
However, as Bey’s album was released on a Friday, only three days count in its first week sales, whereas most albums are released on Tuesdays and therefore get six days.
Suffice it to say, Beyoncé is a big ole success.
