Although it hasn't been on shelves for a full two-weeks, just 1 week to be exact, Beyonce's I Am...World Tour DVD/soundtrack is already double platinum. Deets inside...
Making her directorial debut (this always cracks me up, she WAS the only one in the room when she was filming herself speak), Beyonce's I AM...WORLD TOUR full-length concert film/soundtrack has been certified double platinum after its initial release on Friday, November 26. The DVD now holds the #1 position on Nielsen SoundScan Music DVD chart and has already been certified platinum in Brazil too. So chick has gone double platinum in a little over a week thanks to US and Brazilian sales.
Produced, directed and edited by Beyonce for her own Parkwood Pictures, the concert film weaves together concert and tour footage from 108 shows, 78 cities, 32 countries, on six continents all from her perspective.
And that's not the only thing Beyonce has to celebrate. With her two 2011 Grammy nominations, Beyonce is now the most nominated female in Grammy history with 42 nods. And the third overall. Say what you will, but this type of history (especially since we know how hard black females have it in this music game) is something to be applauded and respected at the very least.
Pappy Knowles is somewhere patting himself (and new Baby Knowles) on the back for this one. A Blu-ray version of Beyonce's I AM...WORLD TOUR will be available, Tuesday, December 7. I have a feeling Bee-season is about to swarm again since she's been in the studio working away on a new album. You ready?
