Happy B'day Beyonce As Album Blasts To The Top
BEYONCE KNOWLES has scored her biggest solo sales week on the US album charts after taking B'DAY to the top of the Billboard 200. The pop superstar has debuted at number one with an impressive 541,000 copies sold. The tally is Beyonce's second-highest career sales week - her former group DESTINY'S CHILD claimed the top spot with the album SURVIVOR in 2001 after selling 663,000 copies. Rock supergroup AUDIOSLAVE debut in second place with REVELATIONS (142,000 sales) and BOB DYLAN's MODERN TIMES slips to number three with 128,000 copies sold. IRON MAIDEN debut A MATTER OF LIFE + DEATH at number nine. It's the first time the British rockers have dented the album chart since 2003 and it's their first release to ever enter the top 10. The only other new entry in the top 10 is HINDER's EXTREME BEHAVIOR, which debuts at number 10.
