Further proof that Beyoncé is the reigning Queen of pop. Her multiple Grammy Award winning, genre defining masterpiece "I Am... Sasha Fierce" has been certified triple platinum in the US. I know those numbers are a far cry from the 90s when Mariah and Shania would regularly sell 10 million but in today's market it's a remarkable achievement. The only pop albums to do better are "The Fame" (although sales include the deluxe version with "The Fame Monster") and "Fearless" (let's face it, rat face doesn't really count anyway). To put it into perspective here are the US sales of "Sasha Fierce" compared to the latest offerings from other so called superstars. Queen B just bitch slapped ya faves!
Beyoncé (Sasha Fierce) = 3,000,000 copies
P!nk (Funhouse) = 1,789,568 copies
Britney (Circus) = 1,662,000 copies
