Beyoncé continues to slay this week as her newly released Lemonade has just earned the queen her sixth straight No. 1 album on Billboard 200, making her the first artist to have their first six studio albums top the chart at No. 1.
Lemonade sold 653,000 equivalent album units in its first week, with 485,000 units attributed to pure album sales. Beyoncé’s new album scores the biggest week of any album in 2016 both in overall units and sales.
The album is still streaming exclusively on Tidal but has been sold as a download from iTunes and other digital retailers.
A physical version of the album will be released on May 6.
