She didn’t need Spotify, Amazon or Target to get the job done. And she still doesn’t need them. After just four weeks on the charts, Beyoncé’s self-titled release has now completely outsold her previous release, 4 (which was – and is – available on Spotify, Amazon, and Target).
According to stats from Nielsen Soundscan, Beyoncé the album has now sold 1.43 million units, beating 4‘s 1.39 million. 4 was released on June 28, 2011, roughly 80 weeks ago.
