    After a one-week vacation from the top slot on the Billboard 200 chart, Beyonce is heading back to No. 1.

    The diva’s self-titled set could sell around 85,000 to 90,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, Jan. 12, according to industry forecasters. If it returns to No. 1, it will mark the fourth non-consecutive week atop the list for “Beyonce.”

    Meanwhile, the current chart champ, the soundtrack to Disney’s “Frozen” movie, will probably dip to No. 2 with around 75,000. The “Frozen” set stormed to No. 1 this past week on the chart, selling 165,000 copies in the week ending Jan. 5, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It bumped “Beyonce” out of the No. 1 position after a three-week reign.

    The top 10 of next week’s Billboard 200 chart will be revealed on Wednesday, Jan. 15.

    The highest new entry on next week’s list will likely be rapper Kid Ink’s major label full-length album, “My Own Lane,” with around 40,000 or so. That should place it around No. 3 on the chart. It should be the only debut in the top 10 next week.

    The rest of the top 10 should be populated with holdovers by the likes of Eminem’s “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” (maybe 35,000), Lorde’s “Pure Heroine” (30,000) and One Direction’s “Midnight Memories” (25,000).

    On SoundScan’s Building chart (below), “Beyonce” leads at No. 1, while Kid Ink and the “Frozen” soundtrack are Nos. 2 and 3, respectively. The Building tally is a precursor to the final Billboard 200 ranking — reflecting the first four days (Monday through Thursday) of SoundScan’s tracking week as reported by six major merchants.

    As for the rest of the top 10: Eminem, Lorde and One Direction are Nos. 4-6, while Katy Perry’s “PRISM” is No. 7. Miley Cyrus’ “Bangerz” is No. 8, Imagine Dragons’ “Night Visions” is No. 9 and Drake’s “Nothing Was the Same” rounds out the Building Chart’s top 10 at No. 10.

    NAACP Image Award is an accolade presented by the American National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to honor outstanding people of color in film, television, music, and literature.

    Similar to other awards, like the Oscars and the Grammys, the 35 categories of the Image Awards are voted on by the award organization’s members (that is, NAACP members). Honorary awards (similar to the Academy Honorary Award) have also been included, such as the President’s Award, the Chairman’s Award, Entertainer of the Year and The Image Award Hall of Fame.

    The award ceremony was first presented in 1967 and was first nationally televised in 1994 on the Fox Network. The first live broadcast of the event, also on the Fox Network, occurred in 2007 for its 38th edition (up until 2007, the ceremony had been broadcast with tape delay) and the annual ceremonies usually take place in or around the Los Angeles, United States (US) area, in February or early March. The 44th edition aired on NBC.

    BeyoncĂ© is nominated to the 45th NAACP Image Awards in the category Outstanding Female Artist, competing with Mary J Blige, Janelle Monae, India.Arie nd Ledisi – and ‘Life Is But A Dream’ (HBO) for Outstanding Documentary – Television. Jay-Z is also nominated in Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration category with “Suit & Tie” – Justin Timberlake song.

    You can see all the nominations after the jump. The 45th NAACP Image Awards will be in February 22. The non-television winners will be announced one day before the event (February 21).

    Beyoncé has indeed been in the business for most of her life—and her new album is all about the freedom she has earned after giving herself to her fans for the last 15 years.

    “Now I’m in my 30s, and those children that grew up listening to me have grown up, and I always felt like it was my responsibility to be aware of kids and their parents and all these generations,” the platinum-selling superstar muses in “Self-Titled Part 5. Honesty,” the latest installment, exclusively obtained by E! News, of her documentary chronicling the making of her pioneering BeyoncĂ©.

    “And I felt like, in a sense, I could not express everything,” she continues, radiant in a plain white T-shirt and jean shorts. “I’ve done so many things in my life, in my career, that I feel like at this point I’ve earned the right to be me and to express any and every side of myself.”

    Case in point: The black and white video for “Rocket,” in which a lingerie-clad Bey most certainly comes into her own.

    “What I love about this song is, it takes you through this journey,” she says over clips of the sexy video. “You’re flirting and you’re talking all of your arrogant s–t. Then you climax, and then you have your cigarette.”
    But while “Rocket” seems to be about one thing, “this song actually is about singing from the heart, and harmonies and adlibs and arrangement,” BeyoncĂ© says.

    “One of the things I love about this project,” she continues, as the featurette cuts to her working at the piano, “how willing all these incredible artists were to write together. Justin Timberlake, Miguel and myself all worked together to write ‘Rocket.'”

    BeyoncĂ©’s self-titled album racks up a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200—the longest run at No. 1 for any album since last April. “BeyoncĂ©” sold another 310,000 copies during the week ending Dec. 29, according to Nielsen SoundScan, down 17% compared with the previous week. The album has now sold 1.3 million in its first 17 days of release in the United States.

    “BeyoncĂ©” is the first album to spend three weeks at No. 1 since Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience” logged three straight frames atop the list (April 6-April 20, 2013). “BeyoncĂ©” is the first album by a woman to notch three weeks at No. 1 since Taylor Swift’s “Red” claimed seven weeks at the top (non-consecutively) in late 2012 and early 2013.

    “BeyoncĂ©” is also the first album since 2009 to sell more than 300,000 copies in each of its first three weeks. (“BeyoncĂ©” debuted with 617,000, then sold 374,000 a week ago.) The last album to move in excess of 300,000 in its first three chart weeks was Susan Boyle’s “I Dreamed a Dream.” It actually moved more than 500,000 in each of its first five weeks, from the charts dated Dec. 12, 2009, through Jan. 9, 2010.

    Finally, with 1.3 million sold in three chart weeks, “BeyoncĂ©” is the fastest-selling album by a woman since Swift’s “Red” plowed through 1.6 million in its first two weeks. It debuted with 1.2 million on the chart dated Nov. 10, 2012, and then sold another 344,000 in its second week.

    Back to this week’s chart though: One Direction’s “Midnight Memories” climbs one spot to No. 2, selling 142,000 (down 14%) while Eminem’s “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” rises 6-3 with 122,000 (up 6%). Both titles are sustaining in sales likely due to post-Christmas shopping by consumers who received gift cards for download stores. It’s traditional to see certain youthful-appealing titles gain in sales in the week after Christmas thanks to gift card redemptions.

    LAS VEGAS — Roaring into an opening weekend for Britney: Piece of Me, her new two-year residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, the onetime fixture on the charts and in tabloids romped through a 24-song spectacle that brought out fans such as Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus, both of whom owe Spears a rump-shaking debt.

    But backstage prior to Friday’s kickoff, Spears pointed admiring fingers anywhere but at herself, telling USA TODAY that she “looks up to BeyoncĂ©, what she did with her (surprise release) album was genius, really brilliant.
