US Chart Roundup: It's Beyonce's World

This week's big chart story is, of course, the Beyoncequake. The diva's fifth album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 after selling 617,000 copies in just three days. (It went on sale at midnight last Thursday.) That means five studio albums, five #1s — and that makes Beyonce the first female to pull off such a feat. (Other acts that have done so: DMX and the Kingston Trio.)

Physical copies of Beyonce should be in stores by tomorrow, and the album is still tops on iTunes, so expect it to retain the top position this time next week. As of yesterday, the album sold 1 million copies worldwide.

Anyway, the first two official singles off Beyonce are "XO" and "Drunk In Love." Let's watch the clips together, shall we? Because, I'll admit — I have yet to watch all 17 videos that came packaged with this album.

Beyonce — "XO"

    Beyonce gets more gorgeous by the hour. Did you see the picture of her kissing Mercy James? Sweet.

    No, but her blonde wig at Walmart was divine.
