Beyonce continues to be a huge seller...
Billboard reports that Beyonce once again topped the Billboard 200 chart for a second week with her new self-titled album.
Beyonce sold an estimated 374,000 copies for the week ending December 22. This was a 39% drop from last week when it debuted No. 1 with 617,000 copies sold. The album was originally released on an off-cycle on Friday, December 13. The album has now sold a total of 991,000 copies thus far and is the 12th biggest-selling album of the year. With one more tracking week left in the year, the album will cross the 1 million mark and be among the top 10 sellers of 2013 albums.
In addition, the album sold more copies in its second week on the chart than Beyonce's last album, 4, did in its first week on the chart. 4 debuted in 2011 at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 310,000 copies.
