share on:

The music world is still on Beyonce fever after the singer’s surprise album launch on Friday.

The first sales numbers are in and they indicate that the fever is swapping over to next week as well when Beyonce is set to debut No. 1 on Billboard‘s 200 charts with over 430,000 copies sold in just one day.

Two more days remain in the sales week and chances are that Bey‘s fifth solo album will surpass the 600,000 mark. This would make it Beyoncé’s best debut and biggest sales week ever, surpassing 2006′s B’day album, which sold 541,000 opening week in September 2006.

One thing’s certain, the final sales number will become the biggest debuting album by a female artist since Taylor Swift’s Red LP, which has sold 1.2 million copies opening week in November 2012.
