Beyoncé: who the hell do you think I am?
Bow down to Beyoncé, *******, because she is at the top of her game… and there’s statistics to prove it.
Not only is she predicted to top the Billboard 200 chart next week with her brand new record Lemonade, but she’s selling more in 24 hours than most artists do in a week.
According to Hits Daily Double, Beyonce sold 200,000 units in one day.
She’s predicted to move around 600,000 by the end of the week.
To be honest, it’s expected Beyoncé would move an outrageous amount in a short amount of time, but what proves her star power is that the record’s lead single, “Formation,” is at the top of the iTunes Songs Charts. Actually, she’s ruling the Top 10 songs chart along with Prince!
On Monday, Beyonce dropped the record onto iTunes.
