    Queen Bey ruling everything in the last week isn't really a surprise. What would have been a surprise is if her self-titled album, Beyonce, didn't come in at No. 1 on Billboard's album chart. The album made its debut at No. 1 with 617,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That means Beyonce is the first woman to reach No. 1 with her first five studio albums. What makes that number even more impressive is that it's based solely on download sales.
