*Beyonce is set to score her longest-running No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart.
Based on sales forecasts from industry sources, her new self-titled effort should remain atop next week’s Billboard 200 for a third consecutive week, the trade reports.
Last week, it spent its second frame at No. 1, moving 617,000 according to Nielsen SoundScan. In the album’s first 10 days of release, it sold 991,000 copies.
If “Beyonce” is No. 1 for a third week, it will mark her longest-reigning chart-topper. While all five of her studio albums have reached No. 1, her longest rule atop the list is two weeks (for both “Beyonce” and “4”).
