"B'Day," which followed Beyonce's solo debut, "Dangerously In Love," scored the Grammy this year for Best Contemporary R&B Album. The win brought the singer's Grammy total up to 10 (seven as a solo artist and three shared with Destiny's Child).
Like "Dangerously In Love," the latest album debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 album chart. "B'Day," which has so far spawned hit singles "Deja Vu," "Ring the Alarm" and "Irreplaceable," has sold 4 million copies worldwide, according to a press release.
The soundtrack to last year's "Dreamgirls," in which Beyonce co-starred with Eddie Murphy, Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Hudson, also scored No. 1 status.
Ahead of her tour, Beyonce is doing the talk-show circuit, appearing this evening (4/2) on Larry King Live and performing on CBS-TV's The Early Show on Friday (4/6). She is also the subject of a BET network special, "B'Day-The Upgrade," which premieres today.
