Beyoncé's recently-released eponymous album will top the Billboard 200 chart this week. Despite coming out as an iTunes exclusive last Friday, it sold 617,000 in three days, breaking the iTunes first-week sales record in the United States. Now, with a full week of sales ahead, the album is slated to top the charts again for a second time next week. Billboard reports that label sources believe it will sell somewhere between 260,000 and 280,000 copies. This will bring the cumulative total sales to approximately 880,000 sales total.
Physical copies of the album have still not arrived in stores yet. The album will likely start reaching retailers by December 20.
