Bow Down: Beyoncé scores concurrent top 10 albums on Billboard 200


Parkwood Entertainment/Columbia RecordsBeyoncé is seeing a career first this week: She has two albums in the top 10 at the same time on the Billboard 200, Billboard reports. 

According to the publication, Queen B’s sixth studio album Lemonade has re-entered the chart at number nine following its official streaming re-release on April 23, its three-year anniversary. The 2016 LP was previously only available to stream via TIDAL.

While it initially debuted at number one, the album has now earned an additional 30,000 equivalent album units, as well as 31.45 million on-demand streams for its songs during the week.

In addition, the vocal powerhouse’s most recent effort Homecoming: The Live Album has surged from number seven to number four on the chart after a full week of sales activity. In the the week since its release, the album has earned 57,000 equivalent album units. It debuted on the chart just two days after it hit streaming services on April 17.

With Homecoming and Lemonade both entering the Billboard 200, this is the first time Beyoncé has claimed two concurrent top 10 albums on the chart. She’s the first woman with two simultaneous top 10s in more than two years, since Lady Gaga did it in 2017.

And as if that wasn’t enough to celebrate, Bey’s I Am…Sasha Fierce, as well as 2013’s self-titled album have both also re-entered the album chart, albeit further down.
