The stats keep rolling in for Beyonce‘s blockbuster fifth LP with news that the stealth release is already the 24th highest-selling album of 2013 — after just three days. Selling 617,000 copies on iTunes between Friday and Sunday, the visual extravaganza has already outsold Kanye West‘s Yeezus (the year’s 25th best-seller with 607,000 copies sold).
In other King B news, Apple is reporting that Beyonce passed the one million mark on iTunes internationally at 11:15am PST this morning (December 18). It now holds the record as the music retailer’s fastest selling album of all time. Oh and the LP is also predicted to spend a second week at number one in the US with digital sales of 250,000+.
