Hate it or love it...Beyonce Knowles just officially changed the game.  Not only was her surprise Beyonce album a raging success, she sold a million albums to further prove it.

 

Details inside....

Up until last week, an artist selling a million records in a week was the tell-tale sign of a super successful album.  Pretty much all of those artists that accomplished the feat did major promo in some way or another.   But Beyonce just changed the game by showing she can sell a million records worldwide...in less than a week...with no promo at all.

Apple & Columbia have confirmed that Mrs. Carter and her Beyonce visual album have officially crossed that 1 million mark.  

The millionth sale came around 11:15 am PST on Wednesday, a knowledgeable source told HuffPost.   And this all comes after she sold over 800K in the first weekend.

This was also done strictly on the digital iTunes platform in full album form only.  And since physical copies just hit many stores today, that 1,000,000 number will shoot up quickly.

The RIAA is expected to certify the pop Queen with platinum status very soon.  But in the meantime, she's still trekking it away on her Mrs. Carter Show world tour (pictured above in Toronto on Monday in her new Balmain stage outfit) and releasing the full videos for her first two official singles, "XO" and "Drunk In Love".  She tears down the stage in D.C. tonight and wraps for the year in Brooklyn on December 22nd.
