Beyonce's first album in nearly six years is favored to hit the $315K mark within its first seven days - Under -150 and the Over +130.


The album will earn more than 170 million streams in the United States over the next week.

The new album 'will easily' debut at No.1 on the Billboard 200.

By comparison, Harry Styles' third studio album Harry's House currently holds the record for the best opening week of the year with 521,000 equivalent album units moved.

Matt James of The Ringer writes in his review of the new album:

"My biggest criticism of this album, which I love, is that Bey has so many ideas she’s attempting to fit into 16 tracks. There are times when she changes up a track before we have a chance to fully settle into a groove. It’s a bit antithetical to the very spirit of dance music and R&B. (I really want “Pure” and “Honey” to be their own full-length tracks!) “Plastic Off the Sofa,” “Virgo’s Groove,” “Cuff It,” and “Break My Soul” are all fantastically distilled, singular, immaculate vibes with running times that allow you to really get deep into them. I just can’t choose between these four tracks."
