Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ First Day Sales Estimated At 200,000 Copies
It’s official: Beyoncé has staged a takeover. Sony estimates that her sixth album Lemonade has sold 200,000 copies in first day sales, according to Hits Daily Double. This ballpark figure arrives after Columbia Records made the record available for download on iTunes and Amazon today (April 25). And at this rate, her latest could sell up to 600,000 copies during its first week.
Lemonade debuted at the top of the iTunes album chart, making it the only top 5 release that didn’t belong to the late Prince. The visual album — her second, following 2013’s self-titled — premiered on HBO as an hour-long TV special, before it appeared on TIDAL exclusively. Thanks to the initial fervor, even TIDAL became the third most downloaded free app on Apple.
Plus, even though Coachella was still going on, the biggest music event of this past weekend entailed staying at home — a feat that only Third Ward Trill could seemingly achieve.
