The ‘Best I Ever Had’ singer, Beyonce Knowles has arrived at No. 1 triumphantly on Billboard Hot 200 this week. Beyonce’s fourth studio installment ‘4’ has bowed 310,000 copies on the United States Album chart. Beyonce Knowles has knocked off Jill Scott which previously ruled the list with ‘The Light of the Sun’.

Beyonce ‘4’ is also following its three predecessors in swaying the album chart. Beyonce is one of them who has debuted their first four studio albums in the top positions of the album chart. Besides her, Britney Spears has achieved this with her four albums during 1999 and 2003. Apart from Britney, DMX has scored his own first five No.1 positions between 1998 and 2003.

However, Beyonce has managed to keep her album ‘4’ in the chart’s highest position; the album has provided the lowest opening number out of her four releases. Her four albums were the 2008’s ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’ with 482,000 copies sold, her 2006’s ‘B’Day’ with 541,000 copies sold as well as the 2003’s ‘Dangerously in Love’ with 317,000 copies sold.

Besides Beyonce ‘4’, Adele ‘21’ has settled in the second place with 92,000 copies sold. Big Sean’s ‘Finally Famous’ and Selena Gomez’s ‘When the Sun goes down’ took the 3rd and 4th position with 87,000 and 78,000 album sales respectively.
