Beyonce’ Album Moves 430,000 Units in a Day…Plus Performs ‘XO’ for the 1st Time in Chicago

Screen Shot 2013-12-15 at 6.41.56 PMReleasing a surprise visual album exclusively to iTunes with 14 songs and 17 videos on Thursday, Beyoncé still has her fans in a Frenzy!  The album reportedly sold a whopping 80,000 copies in the first three hours of sales.  While some critics doubted and were skeptical that a surprise album would blow up as Beyoncé hoped, reports are out and so far the album has reached 430,000 in sales.  According to Billboard 200 this will push the album well over 600,000 before the end of the week sales tracking.
