Beyonce's Album Approaching One Million Copies Sold

It's continuing to do well...
Beyonce's new album is continuing to dominate since its surprise release a little over a week ago. Billboard reports that the self-titled album is looking like it sold around 340,000 copies in its second week, which is far above the initial forecast of 260,000 and should easily place at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The final numbers will be announced on Thursday.
If the album does that well, it will have sold more in the second week than her last album, 4, did in its first week. That album hit 310,000 in its debut week. The numbers appear to put it at 957,000 since it was released without fanfare on December 13th. It was available exclusively through iTunes until late last week and both Amazon and Target have refused to stock physical copies in protest, though obviously that does not appear to have harmed its sales.
