Queen B has done it again! After releasing her new album “Renaissance” last month, it now blasted to the No. 1 spot on Billboard Hot 200 album chart. 

Beyonce’s seventh solo album is the first album released by a female artist in 2022 that dominated the Billboard album charts.

“Renaissance” logged the largest streaming week for an album by a woman in 2022 by on-demand official streams with 179.06 million. It’s also the seventh-biggest streaming debut among all albums in 2022, and Beyoncé’s largest streaming week ever.

Aside from her recent album, Beyonce’s “Lemonade” in 2016, “The Carters’ Everything Is Love” in 2018, and “Homecoming: The Live Album in 2019,” all reached the top 5 on Billboard 200 album charts.
