Beyonce superstar crashed Itunes ,.
The stealth Thursday evening (9 p.m PT) release of Beyonce’s self-titled fifth solo studio set is likely headed towards a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 when that chart’s top 10 is revealed on Wednesday, Dec. 18.
The iTunes exclusive “visual” album, retailing for $15.99 contains 14 tracks — not available for a la carte purchases until Dec. 20 — and 14 accompanying videos, along with other bonus video content. As of this morning, no set date has been announced for the CD release to physical retailers or of its availability on other digital download sites.
The 32-year-old is one of the most photographed women on the planet and although the star has been spotted filming videos in locations around the world, no-one guessed the major coup she was planning
In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.
Beyonce brought music giant iTunes to its knees last night as it buckled under the strain of millions of her fans rushing to download her 5th album which she secretly launched at midnight.
In just a three-hour sales window (closing at midnight Friday PT), “Beyonce” reportedly sold over 80,000 copies, according to industry sources. It’s still too early to judge what the set will do over the full three days left in the sales tracking week (which ends Sunday night), but with prior projected leader, “Blame It All On My Roots: Five Decades Of Influences” by Garth Brooks, estimated to shift 150,000-160,000 units, Beyonce is already halfway to that sum. And in the time it would take someone to fly from New York to Miami.
The album release was so heavily guarded, that reportedly only a dozen or so members of her Sony Records family were even aware of the set being pushed to iTunes yesterday evening.Beyonce superstar crashed Itunes ,.super cool !!
