Kept company by a couple of burly security guys, Bey grabbed a few pressies for daughter Blue

Fresh from surprising fans by releasing her self-titled album online, Beyoncé shocked Christmas shoppers by pitching up at Walmart yesterday to do some shopping of her own.

The Crazy In Love singer made a special appearance at the Tewksbury branch of the chain in Massachusetts on Friday night, according to E Online.

Kept company by a couple of burly security guys, Bey grabbed a few pressies for daughter Blue Ivy, including Barbie dolls.

And of course she picked up a copy of her own album while browsing the aisles.

 

If the sight of a pop megastar in their local branch of Walmart wasn’t enough, the lucky shoppers in the store were in for an even better surprise when Bey reached the checkout.

Taking command of the store’s tannoy, Mrs Carter wished shoppers a happy holidays, before spreading a little Christmas cheer by giving everyone a $50 Walmart gift card – amounting to a total of $37,500-worth – each in an envelope with the message: “Happy Holidays from Beyoncé.”

 

The singer posted snaps of the surprise visit on her official Facebook, with the caption: “A little shopping today at Walmart. #BEYONCÉ is available now in store.”

Beyoncé looks likely to top the Christmas charts having sold more than 100 million copies of her album in under a week.

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.
