This week, Beyonce claims a pair of entries in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 albums chart. With the newly packaged Lemonade arriving via all streaming platforms after only being available on TIDAL for the past three years, Bey’s opus finds a place at No. 9 on the chart with 30,000 total equivalent album units with 4,000 going toward pure album sales, translating to 32.45 million on-demand streams.
Elsewhere, after a full week of tracking, Beyonce’s Homecoming: The Live Albumjumps from No. 7 to No. 4 earning 57,000 equivalent streams in what is technically its second week. The album increases in streaming units, but declines in pure album sales with 8,000 copies sold. With both entries, it becomes the first time Beyonce has had two concurrent top 10 albums and she becomes the first woman to have two simultaneous top 10 albums in over two years. The last time the feat was accomplished was when it was catalyzed by Lady Gaga’s 2017 Super Bowl performance.
