Beyoncé Releases New Self-Titled Album, Will Debut No. 1, Her Biggest Sales Week, Single To Impact Radio This Week

beyoncealbumcover

Early Friday Morning (December 13), iconic R&B/Pop singer Beyoncé shocked the world and abuzz the Internets when she secretly released her new self-titled album exclusively through iTunes (a physical CD-DVD double-disc will be available at music retailers on Dec 21st). This was a great Christmas gift for the BEY-Hives! Bey’s fifth solo offering is a 31 songs and video collection dubbed a “visual album“. On the project, Bey gets assists from her daughter Blue Ivy Carter, husband Jay-Z, longtime friends Kelly Rowland & Michelle Williams, The Dream, Drake, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell, Timbaland, Miguel, Hit-Boy and others.

The 17 music visuals were shot throughout the world in Paris, New York, Sydney, and Rio De Janeiro during ‘The Mrs. Carter World Tour‘. Bey’s visual album broke down barriers as well as raised the bar and set new music standards.

The project is set to debut No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart next week. Beyoncé has now sold over 430,000 copies in just one day, according to Billboard. With two more days left in sales tracking week, Bey’s fifth solo effort could sell over 600,000 copies.

Once the final numbers are released, Beyoncé will easily become the biggest debut album by a female since Taylor Swift’s  Red album which sold 1.2 million copies in its opening week in November 2012. This album will also be Bey’s best debut week-and best sales week period-of her career. Her 2006’s B’day sold 541,000 copies in its opening week.

Beyonce took the music industry by storm! Now she is ready to blaze radio. Beginning this week, the two singles off the album will make their impact on radio. The Pharrell Williams-produced “Blow” will be serviced at Top 40, while the Jay-Z-assisted single “Drunk In Love” heads to R&B/Hip Hop channels. The Dream penned “XO” will follow in 2014 as the second single at Top 40.
