That Beyoncé reign just won’t let up! The singer’s self-titled fifth studio album , which was released exclusively through iTunes on December 13, is now aiming for a second week atop the Billboard 200 chart.

Last week, the album debuted at #1 with sales of 617,000 copies sold in the United States in just a matter of three days!!! Label sources suggest it could sell another 260,000 to 280,000 in the week ending December 22.

The second week sales will feature the physical copies of the album, which began shipping out on Wednesday, December 18.

If it does manage to push another 260,000 copies in its second week, that would bring its cumulative total to 877,000, making it among the top 20 biggest-selling albums of 2013. It currently sits at #24.

The only expected highest new entry on the chart next week is scheduled to be B.o.B ‘s Underground Luxury , with an estimated 35,000 copies.

The album, which I had no idea was even being released, is the rapper/singer’s official third studio album. It debuted on December 17, 2013 through Grand Hustle Records, Rebel Rock Entertainment and Atlantic Records.

The set was supported by five singles: “We Still in This Bitch,” “HeadBand,” “Ready,” “All I Want” and “John Doe.”

It features appearances by Future, 2 Chainz, T.I., Juicy J, Priscilla Renea, Ester Dean and Chris Brown — just to name a few. Thoughts?
