There are very few pop stars in the world who can boast of having a fanbase as devoted as the one and only Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.

Rising to fame in the late ’90s as part of the Destiny’s Child, one of the best-selling girl groups of all time, Beyoncé became a force all on her own as she struck it out as a solo artist.

After making her solo debut on her future husband’s 2002 song “’03 Bonnie & Clyde”, which peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, Beyonce followed it up with “Crazy in Love”, which became her first number-one single as a solo artist in the US.

From her 2003 solo debut, Dangerously in Love to 2022’s highly anticipated Renaissance , here are the rankings for Beyonce’s first week album sales numbers.
