Beyonce” sold 991,000 in its first 10 days and is (so far) the 12th biggest-selling album of 2013
Beyonce’s new self-titled album remains unstoppable on the Billboard 200 chart, as it spends a second week atop the list.
“Beyonce” sold 374,000 copies in the week ending Dec. 22 (down 39%), according to Nielsen SoundScan. It bowed at No. 1 on the previous week’s chart, after only three days on sale, with 617,000 sold.
The album was released on an off-cycle Friday, Dec. 13. Its debut on the chart a week ago came from sales in the week ending Dec. 15.
Thus, in its first 10 days of release, “Beyonce” sold 991,000 and is (so far) the 12th biggest-selling album of 2013. There is one more tracking week left in the year — the week ending Dec. 29. It’s likely that “Beyonce” will finish 2013 among the top 10 sellers (all of which have sold at least 1 million this year).
