Beyonce's Self-Titled LP Has 181 Percent Increase In Sales
Beyonce continues to climb the charts. This week, the singer jumped from #44 to #14 with her self-titled album in its 38th week of availability. The album, which was released in December 2013, sold 15,518 units this week, a 181 percent increase in sales from last week’s 5,515 units. Overall, the album has sold 2,055,353 copies. Part of the reason for the spike in sales could be due to her recent MTV VMAs performance of an album medley.
