Beyoncé’s Sales Numbers Set a New iTunes Record
: iTunes has announced that BEYONCÉ’S surprise, new, self-titled album sold a ridiculous 828,773 copies worldwide in its first three days, which made it iTunes’ fastest selling album ever. In the U.S., it sold 617,213 copies.
In the process, it became iTunes’ fastest selling album ever. Despite having no promotion, it had a couple things going for it: One, you can only buy the WHOLE album . . . and two, it’s ONLY available on iTunes.
The album sold 617,213 copies in the U.S., and hit #1 in 104 countries. But worldwide, if you multiply the 828,773 copies and the $15.99 price tag, the album generated nearly $13.3 MILLION in sales . . . again, in THREE DAYS.
It’s also Beyoncé’s best sales week, and will easily give her a #1 debut on “Billboard’s” weekly album sales chart. The sales week ran through Sunday, but the official chart won’t be released until tomorrow.
She also had the best sales week of any female artist this year . . . with KATY PERRY a distant second. Her album, “Prism”, debuted with 286,000 in sales.
The last female musician to do better was TAYLOR SWIFT, whose album “Red” sold 1.2 million in its first week in November of last year.
