Ashanti Pushes Album Back, Beyonce Outsells Last Album
In other music news...Beyonce's recently released self-titled album has outsold her last album 4. 4 has sold 1.3 million copies in its initial run. That's the amount that Beyonce has sold in 4 weeks time. Beyonce features the hit singles XO and Drunk In Love. I don't get why this is news but it is news. When you think about albums and someone such as Beyonce who has a few albums under her belt, albums sell differently overtime depending on a variety of factors. Beyonce was released at the right time. There was already an anticipation for this album and once the album was secretly released, fans went wild and had to grasp their copy of the album. 4 was heavily anticipated as well but it didn't help that the album's lead single Run The World(Girls) was poorly received on the charts. It didn't help matters when the other follow up singles weren't as huge as previous Beyonce's singles. Not to say 4 wasn't a good album because it was a really good album in my opinion, but Beyonce(the album) had a little more hyped tied to it hence it selling so many copies in such a short amount of time.
