Beyonce’s Surprise Album Heading for No. 1?
Queen Bey has done it again. In just a matter of hours, it looks like Beyonce's surprise, self-titled album may be heading straight to the top of the charts.
Billboard reports that the 'Beyonce' album is likely to top the Billboard 200 charts next week. In just a three-hour sales window, the effort has reportedly sold over 80,000 copies per industry sources. It's still too early to predict how the set will do over the next few days and there is competition from current chart-topper Garth Brooks, but Billboard states that Beyonce is a very strong contender for the top spot.
Fans have been abuzz ever since the surprise visual album dropped at midnight. With 14 songs and 17 accompanying music videos (and no real marketing push) it's a wholly new approach for the singer in releasing content. #NewRules.
