The numbers keep getting bigger and bigger for Beyonce's latest self-titled, sneak-attack album. According to "Billboard," the iTunes-exclusive album has now sold more than 828-thousand copies worldwide within its first three days of release. The majority of those copies -- 617-thousand -- came from U.S. sales alone. That number is breaking U.S. iTunes records, making "Beyonce" the fastest-selling album in its history. The previous record was held by Taylor Swift's "Red," which sold 465-thousand copies on iTunes within its first full week out. Beyonce's album topped Taylor's with only three days under its belt.
"Billboard" adds that iTunes will remain the exclusive retailer for Beyonce's album until December 20th, when most stores are expected to receive the physical copies….Except Target. Spokesperson Erica Julkowski tells "Billboard" that because the superstar's new self-titled release was made available exclusively on iTunes for its opening week, they aren't interested in selling it in stores. She says that when albums come out as digital releases before the physical copies hit stores, "it impacts demand and sales projections." The statement adds that Target has "appreciated partnering with Beyonce in the past," but won't be carrying her latest album "at this time."
