The singer’s latest release is on track to debut at the top spot of the Billboard 200 chart, according to Billboard. If LEMONADE does top the list as predicted, Beyoncé will cement her Queen status and become the first artist to both reach No. 1 and debut at No. 1 with her first six studio albums. The current projections are based on estimates that LEMONADE will sell over 550,000-plus equivalent album units in the week ending April 28 with 450,000 or more of those being traditional album sales.
Last night, Beyoncé kicked off her Formation World Tour in Miami in support of the album. DJ Khaled did not disappoint as the show’s opener bringing out special guests Rick Ross, Future, Lil Wayne, and 2 Chainz. Beyoncé then hit the stage and performed the majority of LEMONADE tracks for the first time including “Hold Up,” “Sorry,” “Freedom,” and more. Bey also took a moment out of the show to pay a special tribute to the late Prince by playing “Purple Rain.” The Formation World Tour continues Friday night in Tampa.
