Beyonce Earns Fifth #1 Album on The Billboard 200
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.18.2013

As we previously reported, Beyonce has earned her fifth #1 album on the Billboard 200 with her self-titled album, with 617,000 copies sold. She is the first woman to hit the top spot with her first five studio albums.

Beyonce was released exclusively on iTunes on December 13, and other retailers will get it between today and Friday, depending on how far and fast the physical copies travel to retailers from the distribution center. The debut this week comes entirely from iTunes download sales.

With Beyonce and Garth Brooks at #1 and #2, respectively, this week is the first time that the top two albums were exclusive to just one retailer. Brooks' album is exclusive to Walmart. Beyonce's set is a digital only album while Brooks' is only available as a physical album. None of Brooks' albums have been available in the iTunes store.

R. Kelly has his fifteenth top ten album with Black Panties arriving at #4 with 133,000. It's the highest charting album for Kelly since 2009's Untitled debuted and peaked at #4. The opening week sales are higher than 2012's Write Me Back, which debuted at #5 with 68,000.

At #7, Childish Gambino gets his best sales week ever and highest charting album with his second release, Because the Internet, which opens with 96,000. His first release, 2011's Camp, debuted and peaked at #11 with 52,000. It's the fourth top ten album for his label, Glassnote Records, following Mumford & Sons' Sigh No More (#2) and Babel (#1), and Phoenix's Bankrupt! (No. 4).

Finally, the soundtrack to Disney's Frozen comes in at #10, up one spot, with 56,000 sold. It's the first soundtrack from an animated film to hit the top ten since Disney's Cars hit #6 in 2006. It's the tenth animated film soundtrack to hit the top ten, with six of those coming from Disney movies.

1. Beyonce - Beyonce (617,000)
2. Garth Brooks - Blame It All On My Roots: Five Decades Of Influence (172,000)
3. Kelly Clarkson - Wrapped In Red (136,000)

8. Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP 2 (83,000)
9. Katy Perry - Prism (59,000)
