Beyoncé Breaks iTunes Record With New Album

Beyoncé‘s self-titled new album has broken an iTunes record, after becoming the fastest-selling LP ever across the globe.

At time of press, Queen B’s fifth studio album – which she unexpectedly released last Friday (December 13) – has managed to shift a huge 828, 773 copies in just three days.

Most of Bey’s impressive sales came from her native America, where she broke the US first-week album sales record with 617, 213 copies sold.

In the UK, she entered the album chart at No.5, clocking up 68,000 copies sold in 48 hours.

Apple – who run the iTunes store – have since confirmed that the former Destiny’s Child star has broken the previous first-week sales record set by Justin Timberlake with The 20/20 Experience, which shifted 580,000 copies in March.

Beyoncé is currently at No.1 on the iTunes chart in 104 countries.

The 32-year old previously said that her album, which came complete with 14 new tracks and 17 videos was inspired by her memories of Michael Jackson.

Bey explained: “I miss that immersive experience. Now people only listen to a few seconds of a song on their iPods and they don’t really invest in the whole experience.”

The likes of her hubby Jay-Z, Frank Ocean and daughter Blue Ivy all feature on the record.

  2. Kim Kardashian has NOTHING on beyonce. I believe that kanye west is jealous of beyonce and jayz’s relationship, thats why he made up an excuse and started dating kim, even trying to put her in music, claiming she would do better than beyonce. beyonce taught her, them both a valuable lesson by beating every first class musician in the world and topping the most downloads by a million in one measly week. Lets see you do that kim kardashian and trouble maker kanye.
