As if we needed more proof that Beyonce's latest album is a monster.

On top of breaking iTunes records, topping charts on an intitially short sales week and taking over the world with literally zero promotion, Beyonce's latest album, Beyonce, has just passed her last album, 4, in total sales.

No big deal, right?

Oh, did I forget to mention that Beyonce topped 4 (which has been available since Summer 2011) in a month? Because it did.

While Beyonce's self-titled album slides out of the No. 1 slot on the Billboard 200 chart this week, its sales continue to grow at a rapid rate.

In just four weeks on the chart, "Beyonce," released on Dec. 13, has now outsold the diva's last album, "4," which bowed on June 28, 2011.

"Beyonce" sold 130,000 copies in the week ending January 5, 2014, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That brings its cumulative sales sum up to 1.43 million - hopping over the total of "4," which stands at 1.39 million.


Bow down, indeed.
