Beyonce keeps on winning. The self-titled album she released last week (Dec. 13) has surpassed 1 million in sales on iTunes.

A source told the Huffington Post that the 1 millionth sale came in at 11:15AM PST. This makes the singer the first artist to pass this mark since Taylor Swift did so with 2010’s ‘Red.’

Before crossing the milestone, Beyonce beat her personal best in first-week sales (‘B’Day’ was the previous record with 541,000 ) and had the fastest-selling album on iTunes (she sold 828,773 copies over the weekend).

‘Beyonce’ entered the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 this week, selling 617,000 units. ‘Drunk in Love’ featuring¬†Jay Z and ‘Blow’ will be the album’s first two singles. The project is not certified platinum yet, but it will be soon as Queen Bey closes out the year on top — even without the help of Target.
