Just days after the release of Beyoncé's fifth and self-titled album at the iTunes Store, Apple says that the album is now the fastest-selling album on its store, with 828,773 sold in just three days. Additionally, the 32-year old superstar has broken the U.S. first week album sales record with 617,213 copies sold, Apple said.
"I didn't want to release my music the way I've done it. I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans," Beyoncé said in a statement. "There's so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans. I felt like I didn't want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it's ready and from me to my fans."
