Beyoncé Spends Third Week at No. 1

‘Yonce is all on the charts like liquor. The pop icon tops the Billboard 200 for a third consecutive week.

BEYONCÉ closed out the year at No. 1, selling 310,000 copies in the last week of December, according to Nielsen SoundScan (via Billboard). The self-titled project, which features 14 songs and 17 music videos, debuted with 617,000 and sold 374,000 in its second week.

The album has moved 1.3 million units in its first 17 days of release in the U.S. and is the longest-running No. 1 for any album since April 2013.

It is also the fastest-selling album by a woman since Taylor Swift’s Red sold 1.6 million copies in its first two weeks in late 2012.

According to Yahoo!, BEYONCÉ is the eighth best-selling album of 2013, despite only being released three weeks ago.

Beyoncé’s fellow females also got a boost from the holiday shopping season. Katy Perry’s PRISM rises two spots to No. 5 with 99,000, Lorde’s Pure Heroine jumps 11-7 with 78,000, and Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz moves 17-8 with 63,000.
