BEYONCE’S ‘SASHA’ DEBUTS AT NO. 1 November 28, 2008

Filed under: Entertainment — Ryann Hayman @ 11:55 am


Beyonce’s new double-disc “I Am … Sasha Fierce” has entered the Billboard 200 this week at No. 1, shifting a healthy 482,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.


      The set’s grand opening, fueled by first singles “If I Were a Boy” and “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” were higher than the 317,000 first week sales of her 2003 solo debut, “Dangerously in Love,” but lower than 2006’s “B-Day,” which moved 541,000 in its initial week.


      Elsewhere on the Billboard 200, former 112 member Slim’s solo debut, “Love’s Crazy” (M3 Productions/Asylum) starts at No. 32 with 27,000.


       At 9.45 million, sales this week are up 6% from last week but down 32% from the same week last year (13.96 million).
