Thanks to Lemonade, Beyoncé is the first artist ever to reach No. 1 with their first six studio efforts.
The BeyHive couldn't get enough Lemonade, because Beyonce's new album debuts atop the charts with 653,000 equivalent album units (485,000 of which are pure album sales), reports Billboard. All six of her studio efforts have debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Lemonade follows her self-titled album in 2013, 4 (2011), I Am… Sasha Fierce (2008), B’Day (2006) and Dangerously In Love (2003).
Lemonade also debuts at No. 1 in the UK.
Since dropping the visual album, Beyoncé has sparked major chatter on the Internet over the record's theme of infidelity, racial inequality and of course... Becky with the good hair.
Beyoncé hasn't commented publicly on the record's massive influence in the music community, and don't hold your breath. Instead, she's letting the music do the talking while she embarks on her sold-out Formation stadium tour which kicked off in Miami last week.
The album saw huge first-week sales, but Drake's Views will dethrone her come next week. He reportedly sold 630,000 units... in one day.
