From Billboard
Beyonce makes history at the top of the Billboard 200 this week with her new self-titled album. The set debuts at No. 1 with 617,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan, making the diva the first woman to reach No. 1 with her first five studio albums.
"Beyonce" was released exclusively through the iTunes Store on Dec. 13, though other retailers will start to receive the physical copy of the album between Dec. 18 and Dec. 20. (The arrival day varies, depending on how far -- and fast -- the CDs travel from the distribution center to retailers.)
Its start on the chart this week is powered solely by download sales from iTunes.
So far 'Beyonce' has sold over 800k copies world wide.
