Beyonce’s self-titled fifth album will be sitting atop the Billboard 200 next week, surpassing the likes of R.Kelly and other releases from this week.
With 200,000 units sold in digital sales alone, the singer will send her fifth album to the top of Billboard 200, even before it is physically released on December 21st. As for R. Kelly, his album is on track to make a top ten debut.
Now that the shock value is over, its time to go the traditional route, and tradition never fails. We have information on not just two singles being released from the album this month, but a third as well.
First, “Blow” will seek radio’s mainstream formats in the coming weeks. If you’ve seen the video you would know that Todrick Hall (who is famous for his “Target” cover of “End Of Time” and “American Idol” stint) made a cameo appearance in it. But its now being revealed that he also helped choreograph the video. Lucky guy!
As for the urban single, it shouldn’t be a surprise that “Drunk In Love” featuring Jay-Z will be released. The third single (which will actually be the second single, since the first two will be billed as double singles) “XO” will pick up where “Blow” leaves off and go to mainstream radio formats in January 2014.
