Beyonce Sold Half A Million Albums in 48 Hours!!

Beyoncé, the self-titled "visual" album from Beyoncé Knowles, has sold enough copies to win it the number one place on the Billboard 200, the American album charts, on Thursday.
Knowles released her album without prior announcement on Friday morning on iTunes. More than 80,000 copies were sold within three hours of the release and sales had reached approximately 350,000. With the sales tracking week set to finish later on Sunday, Billboard predicts Beyoncé could sell more than 600,000, guaranteeing it a number one slot in the chart.
Current sales figures put Beyoncé on track to become the highest-selling album in its first week by a female artist since Red by Taylor Swift, which shifted 1.2 million copies in November 2012. If the 600,000 plus predictions come true, Beyoncé will set a new record for Knowles as the best sales week of her career. Currently Knowles's 2006 album, B'day, is her most successful debuting record after selling 541,000 copies in its first week.
