You best bow your head while you read this post, y’all!

Because Beyoncé may have just done the UNTHINKABLE!

We hear that her self-titled surprise album has already hit the 1 million sales mark!

Consider that for just a second…

Bey's 5th album debuted without ANY promotion. Without ANY warning. And yet she STILL somehow shatters records!

And just consider the following:

- this was her biggest first week in her entire solo career
- she went #1 in 104 countries
- AND this was the fastest-selling album EVER on iTunes

Da Queen!!! ‘Nuff said.

In the first three days, Beyoncé blew up with more than 617,000 sales in the U.S. And in its second week, her album has reportedly sold nearly 400,000 more digital and physical copies.

It hasn’t been made official yet, but you add those two numbers up and you’ve got yourself a platinum album, ladies and gents!

And she’s doing this WITHOUT Amazon or Target’s help! Both have officially refused to sell B’s CD because of her first week exclusive deal with iTunes.

Well, how do you like them Apples!

Beyoncé doesn’t need your help to get a #1 hit!

Congratz, Mrs. Carter, on your 5th straight platinum album!!!

    Her last album was #1 in the UK this album is #5 … Her last album was #1 in France … ( This album #24 ) … this album has 0 songs in the hot 100 right now 00000 … Buying your own album or giving people gift cards to buy your album may let you get to #1 on the Billboard 200 chart for 1 or 2 weeks but that is only because no other new album was coming out :) ~ … Beyoncé has 0 video's on the top youtube videos and no one is buying her singles ( Miley is hosting the new years eve special > Not Beyoncé > as Beyoncé is no longer a star with no hit songs and only news of albums sold that she bought her self to make news :) ~ I think it is Target and Amazon that is laughing = wow she has to give away gift cards to try and get people to buy her album OMG LOL :) ~

    Re: lisa – It is so sad when singers fall, they have to make up tricks to try and stay in the news ( only sell your album on iTunes for a week so you can say — look at me, I am #1 on itune's ) so they can still make money on concert tour.

    Re: Jason – I DO NOT THINK I HAVE EVER SEEN A BIG STAR NOT HAVE ONE SONG IN THE HOT 100 THE FIRST WEEK? GAGA's ALBUM THAT WAS A FLOP HAD LIKE 3 SONGS ON THE TOP 100 ATLEAST POOR BEYOANCE >> NO ONE IS PLAYING HER SONGS

    She's trying something different with all of this. I read she wasn't concerned about sales
    (after all, she's well $et) but more about doing her own thing creatively and obviously, marketing. It's going pretty well anyway.

  5. Ben says – reply to this

    This is turning out to be a bigger flop then Gaga if you can not get one song in the top 100 and she is the only new album out. Hell, Christmas songs are out selling her songs lol

    Re: lisa – No, idiot! Her album was #1 because it sold 600K in the US. All the other new albums that came out the weeks prior didn't even sell half of that. Considering that it was only available on iTunes and no hard copies were available, going to #5 and #24 in those countries you listed on just digital sales alone is impressive. The gift cards she gave away were given away a week after her album had gone #1, and she only gave away 750 gift cards, and didn't instruct people to buy her album, as if 750 copies sold were going to make or break her, so your point is moot. She just released two singles last week, so they haven't had time to chart on the HOT 100. Learn how things actually work before you kill some brain cells trying to pretend you're smart, and BTW, what have you accomplished?

    Re: Ben – the whole point of artists releasing singles is to sell their album. Beyonce sold more in 3 days than most of them sold in their first month… would you rather have a number 1 15.99 platinum album or a number 1 1.29 single with less than 200k sales? think about that one buddy.

    Re: Kelly – I LOVE GAGA BUT SHE HAD THE BIGGEST FLOP OF HER CAREER WITH ARTPOP. ITS OBVIOUS THAT HIT SINGLES AREN'T HELPING THESE ARTISTS. beyonce played this round smart.

    lol the excuses behind her album becoming a critically acclaimed insta-hit are rolling in from jealous idiots. ignoring the fact that this album generated millions upon millions of tweets in a short span and was released and certified gold digitally so there is no possible way the numbers could have been manipulated. not to mention that amazon and target are boycotting her and she's still selling out worldwide

  10. The Truth Hurts says – reply to this

    False number like Jayz album sales. Her record label gave away 1 million albums and 1 million singles and now wants to claim that her album is selling.

    The album has no hits, none, is not played on any of the radio stations and now looks like the biggest second week loss even bigger then Madonna's album which holds the record for the biggest second week loss of all time.

    Gaga had a No1# song in the top ten for weeks and hers was the number #1 album also. Here album was Certified Platinum by Billboard and the Recording artists.

    Beyonce nor Jayz was or will be certified when they give away an album.

    Re: The Truth Hurts – your bitterness over someone having a successful album is quite hilarious xD are you really that upset?

    Why can't people just be happy or give her credit for her success instead of trying to discredit her or trying to prove some conspiracy theory that doesn't exist. Most of it is just rooted in fan (Stan) wars–overzealous fanboys who are just bitter because it didn't happen to their fave. It's music..it's art…it's not a competition. Enjoy the music.

    She sold a million in the 1st 2 weeks without ANY promotions, she just released it, no twerking, sex tapes, or even a single… If thats not impressive than you are just purely jealous plan and simple…SHE earned the title QUEEN for sure!

    I can not understand the hatred for that woman Beyonce. Her angry, miserable haters make so many wild speculations and outlandish accusations about her life and her success, it is actually more sickening than it is funny now. If jealousy really is a disease, get well soon, haters.

    People seem to be forgetting that none of the songs were available for individual purchase when the album first came out (I think they are now). She capitalized on people's need for instant gratification and kudos to her and her team for thinking about that. I'm not a hater, I'm pretty indifferent towards her (like her older stuff more than her more recent stuff but I also won't automatically hate her new stuff, either). Although I have to say, as someone who is indifferent, all of this "Queen! Flawless! Legend!" stuff is getting old. It's as annoying as the people who completely hate her without valid reason.

    Re: WAITYKATE – That's what parents said about Alice Cooper, while he was actually playing golf with Pat Boone on days off. What makes you think it's more than purposely trying to appeal to rebellious youth by being dark and edgy by wearing baphomet jewellry?

    Calling yourself the Queen does not make you a Queen. The true Queen of this year was Lorde, with her one hit song, "Royals," that comes from the heart and says something important and real that so many people can relate to. I can't relate to most of what Beyonce projects, personally speaking, but in the world of true thrones, she has to fabricate her own.

Her album hit #1 in 107 countries! yall mad? her singles were just released a week ago, give it time to catch on. She doing things the old school way.Saying that she bought them herdself is a thing that HATERS say. And Gagas album was #1 and had a top 5 hit song.

    Beyonce had no promotion or singles prior to this album coming out. She put it on iTunes and it sold 830,000 downloads worldwide in 3 days. And after 2 weeks of her album's release she is already platinum and counting in the U.S. and did it without having her album sold in some of the largest retailers (Amazon and Target). But she doing the damn thing for an R&B/PoP artist especially now days! Because not many aren't doing it like her and Rihanna.

    45

    #NothingButGhostSales Beyoncé was able to FOOL the media in believing she sold 800000+ albums without promotion videos radio etc.. How is that possible? Everyone is hailing her the Queen when she is far from it and doesn't have an artistic bone in her body. If it wasn't for Jay Z having Billboard change rules that BIG BUSINESSES can buy large bulks of albums this would have never happened. So Pepsi and Lorreal and other people who sponsor Beyoncé are responsible for her digital sales..I have not met a real person with her record. And having visited numerous stores Beyoncé is overflowing on he self with no one is buying.. I didn't buy this album I downloaded it for FREE… her music is still the same.. you can compare songs from this to all her other records and its still the 25 word vocabulary that she has. Nothing feminist about degrading yourself and shaking it like a stripper.. Beyoncé will never be Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston EVER!

He supposed to be Something Big, But I Can't List More Than Two of His Songs. On the other hand, I Can List More Than Thirty of Beyonce's Songs. Beyonce is a Household Name. JayZ is Not.
