Beyoncé Remains No. 1 for Second Week

Beyoncé

Beyoncé had the best Christmas ever. The superstar’s self-titled album remains No. 1 for a second week on the Billboard 200.

BEYONCÉ sold an additional 374,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. The visual album, which features 14 songs and 17 videos, previously debuted at No. 1 with 617,000 after only three days on sale.

In its first 10 days alone, the album has sold 991,000 copies and is the 12th biggest-selling album of 2013. However, there is one more sales week left in the year and its likely that BEYONCÉ will finish in the top 10 and go platinum.

Prior to Christmas, physical copies arrived in stores including Walmart and Best Buy, but digital sales still trumped the physical release. Of the 374,000 copies sold, 235,000 were downloads (63%).

Elsewhere on the chart, Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 rises two spots to No. 6 (115,000), thanks in part to his Rihanna-assisted single “The Monster,” which is No. 3 on the Digital Songs chart.

B.o.B’s third album Underground Luxury enters at No. 22 with 35,000. His previous album, 2012′s Strange Clouds, debuted at No. 5 with 76,000.

    @Girl Bye, It has been reported that another major retailer has joined Target in boycotting her music, so if you believe all the hype you are just plain dumb.

    @darla, doesn’t stop her from going number one again. In fact it further cements her legendary status that she can remain number one with two of the BIGGEST retailers not selling her album. Good night my dear.

    @Girl Bye, I hear ya! However, I personally think Ciara is a sexier dancer, and contrary to popular belief Niki M is built ten-times better, even as far as media looks are concerned.

    Get it Beyoncé! She’ll probably be #1 again next week too.

    @Kyle, She’ll be number 1 until her money runs out, and you cease to be brainwashed into buying.

    Poppy Reply:

    @davis, I agree with that, too! Besides, how much do ya wantta bet that her album sales are elevated by young people and men? This is nothing to base good music on. She can sing a good tune, but Ciara tops her. Jennifer Hudson blows her away, and Niki M. has a body that she can’t touch. Now what???

    If Target stopped being buttholes, I would buy a copy. Unfortunately, my local Best Buy went out of business and I refuse to buy Walmart’s edited version.

    Beyonce is very overrated her music is not all that great its the videos that makes people want to listen

    karamelkisses Reply:

    @rave4, thank you for your opinion however unless you’ve listened to the album, it’s null and void. from female empowerment songs like pretty hurts and flawless to a song about oppression like superpower to songs about monogamous love like mine and rocket beyonce did w/ this album what she does best … take meaningful lyrics and lay them over a dope beat. not that many pop stars are doing that right now which is why a lot of the critics have praised this album. she’s already broken several records w/ this album and it will be platinum in it’s third week, a feat that some of these albums can’t accomplish in 3 months. #butthankyou

    @karamelkisses, How much does she pay you to try and brainwash black consumers to buy her garbage. We do have brains you know.

    karamelkisses Reply:

    @davis, she pays me nothing, I have a mind of my own to think and a mouth of my own to say what I want. bitch, she’s not begging you or anybody else to buy her product. you either do or you don’t. at this point 991,000 have chosen to so why are you so salty? you need to find a new hobby in the new year!

    @rave4, p.s. if you think she’s overrated & the music is not that great, you do realize that you are free to listen to a plethora of other artists and NOT come on a beyonce post hating. no life huh?

    @Bitches In Paris, Amazon refuse to sell it also. You will find selling by third party on amazon. Third party sales do not count towards beyonces sales because they are considered resells.

    @Nunofyobusiness, She counts freebies as sales so I’m sure she’ll try and count the third party too.

    karamelkisses Reply:

    @mary, what freebies has she counted? some of you all talk out of your asses w/ no factual information. how the hell can you count freebies first of all? secondly, she’s not the one counting, it’s iTunes and billboard. nothing to do w/ your life but come on a beyonce post hating huh? mad because she doesn’t have to live on twitter & ig to sell her product? mad because despite the desperate attempts by all these pop stars (twerking, smoking weed on ig, etc) this bitch is 17 years strong in the game and shamelessly outselling your fave. selling in 3 days, what some of these chicks take 3 months to sell. #gottaloveit
