Beyonce On Track For Her Longest-Running No 1 Album
Mrs Carter released her fifth studio album this month...
It’s been a good year for Beyonce!
The former Destiny’s Child singer surprised everyone by releasing her fifth studio album earlier this month with absolutely no warning, let alone publicity.
Within 24 hours the iTunes-exclusive release crashed the online music store, with fans rushing to get a copy. Almost a million copies were sold in the first 10 days of release.
Now Billboard reports that Queen Bey is on track to score her longest-running No 1 album, with industry experts predicting it will stay on the number one spot for a third consecutive week.
All of Beyonce’s previous four albums have hit the number one spot but only one – her previous record, 4 – has stayed there for longer than a week.
If Mrs Carter – who is married to hip hop mogul Jay Z (aka Shawn Carter) – does stay in the top spot for her third consecutive week, she’ll find out on Thursday, 2nd January.
Which would be a pretty good start to 2014!
