Apple: BEYONCE Shatters iTunes Records with 828,773 Albums Sold in First 3 Days

Apple issued a press release Monday saying Beyonce’s self-titled album has become the fastest selling album ever on the iTunes Store worldwide with “an unprecedented 828,773 albums sold in just its first three days.”

 BEYONCE also broke the US first week album sales record with 617,213 sold and proved to be a global success going to number one in 104 countries.

The self-titled, BEYONCE, is the fifth solo studio album from Beyonce, which was made available exclusively worldwide on the iTunes Store on December 13 by Parkwood Entertainment/Columbia Records. The self-titled set is the artist’s first visual album. BEYONCE is infused with 14 new songs and 17 visually stunning, provocative videos shot around the world from Houston to New York City to Paris, and Sydney to Rio de Janeiro, all before the album’s release. The album represents Beyonce’s biggest sales week ever. Source: Marketwatch
