Beyoncé Holds at No. 2, Kid Ink Scores Top 3 Debut

Beyoncé and Kid Ink

Beyoncé was iced out on the charts by Frozen for the second week in a row, while Kid Ink debuts in the top 3 this week.

Queen Bey’s self-titled album sold 79,000 copies in its fifth week, down 40% from 130,000 a week ago, reports Billboard. The project was expected to reclaim the No. 1 spot from Frozen, but the soundtrack sold about 5,000 to 10,000 more than expected (86,000).

BEYONCÉ has sold 1.5 million in five weeks and already surpassed the sales of her previous album 4, which has sold 1.39 million since 2011.

Kid Ink earns the only top 10 debut with his album My Own Lane at No. 3. Led by the Chris Brown-assisted single “Show Me,” the L.A.’s rapper’s major label debut sold 50,000 and claims the No. 1 spot on the Rap Albums chart.

Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 falls 3-4 with 36,000, Lorde’s Pure Heroine holds at No. 5 with 33,000, Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz moves 13-8 with 20,000, and R. Kelly’s Black Panties rounds out the top 10 with 17,000.

    That’s okay. For someone to have done not one ounce of promo since the CD has released she’s doing just fine.

    @Jamie, … the day the album was released.
    Don’t worry, I completed your sentence for you. And what’s crazy is when she starts making the award show rounds like the Grammy’s in 4 weeks. I’m sure she’ll be performing seeing as how she’ll be w/ Jay Z since he’ll be reppin’ w/ his 9 noms.

    It’s so crazy thinking that the #10 album sold only 17,000. Damn sales are low! I know they always are in January but that’s just crazy. Good for Beyoncé though!
