Beyoncé Breaks iTunes Record With New Album

Beyoncé has already shocked the music industry with the stealth release of her namesake album, but she now boasts bragging rights for most albums sold in a debut week on iTunes. The artist sold 828,773 copies of Beyoncé in the first three days it was available, breaking an iTunes record for most albums sold in the first week of release, Apple announced Monday.

The pop queen kept her album secret until its midnight debut on Dec. 13 — a departure from the typical practice of releasing an album on Tuesday to allow a full week of sales.
