Album Sales: Beyoncé is #1


Come on. We all immediately knew that when Beyonce surprisingly dropped Lemonade on the masses, that it would soon be the #1 album in the country. And with 653,000 equivalent album units (485,000 in pure album sales), Lemonade is in fact the #1 album on the Billboard charts. This album marks Beyonce’s sixth #1 album which makes her the first artists to have their first album go #1. All hail Queen B!


Prince is still reigning supreme too. After having the #1 album last week, the music legend still has six albums in the Top 10 with Very Best of Prince (#2), Purple Rain (#3), The Hits/The B-Sides (#4), Ultimate (#6), & 1999 (#7). Respeck Respect.

A$AP Ferg dropped his sophomore album last week with Always Strive and Prosper. It landed at #8 and sold around 35,000 copies. It also outsold and out charted his debut album from 2013 so this is a win.

Drake is looming and it’s almost certain that he will grab the top spot next week as his new album Views is scheduled to sell a million copies. Oh yeah, the Views review will be dropping TOMORROW.
