Beyoncé released her surprise self-titled "visual" album on Friday, and strangely enough it shifted a lot of copies.

Apparently by the end of play on Friday, it moved up to 430'000 copies. We're assuming that figure is probably over 600'000 at this point, though no official figures have been revealed yet (we'll find out more on Wednesday). This means that BEYONCÉ could end up being Beyoncé's fastest selling album of her career.

It's worth noting that this is based on digital sales. Physical copies of the album won't be on sale for another week or so. To me that's more interesting than the 17 videos that accompanied the album.
