    Beyonce's New Album Goes Platinum [Update: Third-Week Sales Projections Are In]
    Dec 29, 2013 at 02:30pm
    Beyonce has quickly gone platinum, after releasing Beyonce to great fanfare just two weeks ago. The numbers are pretty well-known by now, the album sold 617,000 units opening week, while moving 80,000 in three hours on iTunes alone. The visual album landed at #1 on the Billboard 200, where it is expected to stay for its second week on the charts. In her second week out, the album moved 383,000 units, which now includes physical copies of the CD. No doubt, Christmas shopping can be thanked for many of her sales.

    The past week brought Christmas, which undoubtedly brought sales in all departments, music or otherwise. However not all hip-hop artists were lucky enough to benefit from this Christmas season. Although B.o.B released his album Underground Luxury just in time to enjoy some holiday giving, his album fell completely flat, managing to debut at #22 this week on the Billboard 200, moving only 35k. Compare this to Strange Clouds which did 76k, or better yet, his debut album which moved 84k opening week, and it looks like Bobby Ray's fan base is waning.

    Last week we discussed the new effort from Beyonce which made waves in the internet over night, selling an astounding 80,000 units in just three hours. Apart from breaking an iTunes record, the album is well on its way to platinum, following the #newrules of her husband Jay Z. Bey surpassed her past record for first week sales, and it's possible that she'll maintain the #1 spot two weeks in a row-- a feat Jay Z accomplished with MCHG as well.

    Looks like her self-titled moment wasn't the only spontaneous gesture Beyonce had up her sleeve. The R&B diva hit up a Wal-Mart in Tewksbury, Massachusetts Friday to surprise shoppers with a generous offer.

Mrs. Carter also took the time to wander the aisles and greet fans during her visit. Take a look at some of the footage of the event below.

Fucked if I know!” said Iggy in the interview, expressing frustration over the delay. ”It’s done, it’s so depressing to say this but it’s the beginning of March, it’s so far away but I just have to accept that.”
