Beyoncé is one of the best-selling recording artists in the world, having sold over 120 million records as a solo artist by 2010. The singer and songwriter announced her seventh studio album, Renaissance, on June 15th. It appears, Beyonce’s first solo album in six years is set to follow its predecessors with a reign atop the charts.
According to HitsDailyDouble, the famed singer’s seventh studio effort, Renaissance, is projected to bring in an estimated 275,000 to 315,000 total album-equivalent units. The figure would not only be good enough for Beyoncé to supplant Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, but it would also mark her seventh consecutive solo album to debut at the top of the chart following 2003’s “Dangerously In Love,” 2006’s “B’Day,” 2008’s “I Am…Sasha Fierce,” 2011’s “4,” 2013’s “Beyoncé” and 2016’s “Lemonade.”
Since its release on July 29th, Renaissance has proven to be a dominant figure on streaming services. The album has already become Spotify’s most-streamed album in a single day by a female artist and is projected to outperform expectations with 170 million plays in the United States alone.
Beyoncé posted a message on Friday to acknowledge the leak, and thank fans for having the patience to enjoy the album as it was intended. However, despite all the hurdles, the album proved to be a massive success.
