NEW YORK (AP) — Beyonce’s new album was released just last week, but it’s already the second best-selling album on iTunes this year.

Apple announced Tuesday that the diva’s self-titled album is behind only Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience.” Beyonce’s fifth album sold more than 617,000 units in three days.

Albums from Imagine Dragons, Jay Z and Drake round out the top 5.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have the top-selling song with “Thrift Shop.” Their hit, “Can’t Hold Us,” placed fifth.

Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons and Pink’s “Just Give Me a Reason” ranked second, third and fourth.

“Skyfall” is the year’s top-selling movie and “Breaking Bad” is the leading TV show.
