Say what you will about Beyonce‘s latest “effort,” but you can’t knock the timing of the release.

Because the lack of true competition in her market is making boo boo smell like roses as far as “4” is concerned.

After debuting with the lowest first-week totals of her solo career last week with 4, the “Best Thing I Never Had” singer will make it two in a row at the top next week when her latest holds on to the #1 slot thanks to sales of 115,000.Though Bey’s sales were down a bracing 63 percent (with a two-week total just shy of 426,000), that is more than enough to hold off this year’s chart queen, Adele, whose five-month-old smash, 21, holds steady at #2 thanks to another 79,000 units moved. That pushes her total to date to nearly 2.6 million, according to figures provided by Nielsen SoundScan.

The ladies rule a female-heavy top 10 that features just one new entry, R&B singer Lloyd’s King of Hearts, which sneaks in at #10 on sales of 26,000.

The rest of the top 10: Selena Gomez & the Scene, When the Sun Goes Down (#3, 44,000), Jason Aldean, My Kinda Party (#4, 42,000), Bad Meets Evil, Hell: The Sequel (#5, 35,000), Jackie Evancho, Dream With Me (#6, 34,000), Jill Scott, Light of the Sun (#7, 32,000), Lady Gaga, Born This Way (#8, 30,000) and Big Sean, Finally Famous (#9, 27,000).

Dayum! Bey is still trying to get to 500,000? We woulda thought the thirst was stronger with you stans.

    Maybe beyonce’ should have taken more than just one year off. She came back like she really went on some life changing journey abd found a new part of herself, but came with the same ole’ sound, the same ole’ stage show, the same outfits… She needs to have a talk with her husband about self preservation.

    Awww look at all the poor haters mad because beyonces album didn’t flop!! Poor uuu. Anyway for you to say beyonce is putting out “garbage” is ridiclious. Beyonce is one of the few artist that actually make real music. Unlike that same borning washed out pop sound that gaga, kesha, rihanna, and Britney have. 4 is an amazing album with music that actually has emotion, and meaning. her best album sence dangersouly in love. Go beyonce!

  • hahahahaha!!!!!

    @Ella and why did she outsell rihanna, katy perry, Jennifer Lopez, and Britney in the first day?! The ONLY compeition beyonce wld have is lady gaga.
