Billboard reports that Beyonce's self-titled album is set to get a second week on top of the Billboard 200 after it debuted at #1 with 617,000.
Label sources predict it will sell between 260,000 and 280,000 before Sunday. This would include physical CD copies as well as digital downloads from retailers other than iTunes. It debuted on the chart after three days of sale exclusively on the strength of iTunes sales after its release on December 13. However, as of yesterday the physical albums were shipped to retailers and will be there by tomorrow.
If it sells 260,000, that would bring its total to 877,000, making it one of the twenty highest-selling albums of 2013. It's currently #24 on that list.
The highest debut next week is expected to be B.o.B.'s Underground Luxury with around 35,000 sold.
