US numbers are looking real strong! Digitally Beyonce sold 500k copies, but if you add the streaming of her tracks, it brings the total to 700k. That is a very solid number for the first week!
Beyonce’s Lemonade will loom large on the next Billboard 200 albums chart. Industry forecasters now suggest the set could debut at No. 1 on the May 14-dated list with more than 500,000 copies sold and more than 700,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending April 28. (On April 27, sources said Lemonade was on track to sell possibly 450,000, with its equivalent unit total at 550,000 or more.) – Billboard
