The new, and surprising, Beyonce album sold more than 80,000 copies in three hours, the Daily Mail reports.
Beyonce’s fifth album is available on iTunes in an explicit and a family version. The variants hold the top two spots on the iTunes charts. A total of 17 videos and 14 songs are included on the eponymous album, which will be available in stores on December 21. Most of the videos were shot outdoors during the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.
Does anyone ever listen to Beyonce without watching the accompanying videos? Would her fans buy an album sans sound? Don’t just shake it if you can’t take it!
….Once iTunes - Apple's music downloading site - was back up and running, fans were hit with another surprise - Beyonce's 14 new tracks could not be downloaded individually, instead they had to pay $15.99 (£9.80) for the entire album.
