Sasha Fierce #1 on Billboard Charts and Bey Does the Today Show

- By Bossip Staff

Bey’s Album topped the charts today selling almost a half a million records:

Beyonce scores her third straight No. 1 debut on The Billboard 200 this week as the double-disc “I Am … Sasha Fierce” (Music World/Columbia) shifts a whopping 482,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The album, split between material credited to Beyonce and her new alter-ego Sasha Fierce, has already spawned the hits “If I Were a Boy” and “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” Beyonce’s 2003 solo debut, “Dangerously in Love,” started with 317,000, while 2006’s “B-Day” moved 541,000.

Hi, Haters. It looks like Bey’s album is well on it’s way to platinum status here in the U.S. What now?

On top of that, Beyonce was on the Today show making her star shine that much brighter. Perhaps the performance left a little to be desired, but she still did her thing out there.

Here are some shots of her in action this morning.

More pics and a video of Bey performing on the Today Show when you…

This is the video of Beyonce performing “Crazy in Love.” Have fun.

    I am so happy for Bey… at least real TALENT is back… somebody may be winning but we all know she does not have any talent….. Go Bey Go

  • She'NaeNae

    She looks stunning in these pics. I think she laid off the donuts or whatever the f she was eating cuz she looks slimmer all over – could be the black slimmin her down. Regardless, she is doin what she do best here – singin the melody, do a lil strut thang here n there and lookin purty. So please gurl, keep that ish up and don’t try to rock the edgy/couture ish…even ur alter ego can’t manage that extremeness. and it looks like showin a lil less skin is workin to ur advantage too hun 🙂 i was gettin tired of those cottage cheese legs and ass – if u wanna show that ish u better hit the gym bay-bay.

  • Know Your Place

    The radio (*programmers) played that damn “Single Ladies” song so much – I like it now…

    Congrats to Mrs. Carter…

    Not the best singer or actress but definitely a great “entertainer”…



  • Taylor

    Wonder what really goes on in her life!

  • Swag-a-licious

    That’s good for today’s number, i guess, but she has OFFICIALLY LOST her “hottest chick” title that she gave herself:

    Alicia Keys posted a career-best sales week — and the second biggest of the year for any artist — in the frame ended Sunday, Nov. 18, moving 742,000 copies of her disc “As I Am” (J Records) in its first week in release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    Sorry Bey, I guess the album isn’t all of that…I didn’t buy it!

  • Dana

    Damn. She looks fierce in that suit. by thw way, some website are saying that her album sould 505K. Doesnt matter, she did well. Haters wanted a flop, but hahahahah!

  • Dana

    she ddnt sell that much bcoz of teh economy. C’mon ppl, the country’s economy is REALLY bad!


    she thinks she’s slick. release a double CD so that she only has to sell 500K in order to be certified platinum. no matter, this album will still be dead by christmas.

    and didn’t Janet already do the whole catsuit look earlier this year and on her tour? biting yet again, i see….

  • Swag-a-licious

    Lil Wayne did 1 million in a week and did 423,000 in ONE DAY!!! Kanye even did better than this….

    What happened stans???!?!?! I’m sure Bey has more Stans than Wayne and Kanye….I guess y’all are feeling the recession. Citing my sources right about now:

    Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter III” (Cash Money/Universal Motown) became the first album in more than three years to top 1 million sales in a week, according to Nielsen SoundScan data.

    The million-seller opened strong — 423,000 copies were sold on its first day of release — which put it in a position to top the 957,000 that Kanye West’s “Graduation” sold in September.

  • Swag-a-licious

    LMAO @ Sasha Flop…so true if Kanye outsold you

  • dayg715

    LMAO, all that hoopla and she couldn’t even outsell her last album? yeah, i see a FLOP in the next couple of months too.

  • unique

  • Pynk


  • LeLe

    Me too Slide….I didn’t like the song at first but hearing it so much I do now. And she does sing great but not act that good.

  • Swag-a-licious

    It’s now official for 2008…ALICIA IS TOP DIVA AND THE BEST SELLING R&B ARTIST!!!!

    She also does it with her clothes on and without a stripper pole. She is very beautiful before the Stans come out and claim that I’m hating (imagine that…i look better than both of them!)

    I love Rhianna too…but please….she is not there yet!!

  • dayg715
