Beyonce Sees Huge Album Gains Post-VMAs

(Undated) -- Beyonce's locking down her "XO" factor in star power. According to "Forbes," sales of the singer's December surprise album release have surged more than 14-hundred percent since her appearance on last Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards. "Beyonce" rose from number 40 to number seven on iTunes over the past week. And every song she performed on the show has seen impressive gains as well. "XO," for instance, was up more than 16-hundred percent in sales, while "Flawless" saw a 12-hundred percent sales surge. "Queen Bey" was presented with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award after a show stopping performance at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy were on hand to present the honor.

The VMAs were also good to Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and Maroon 5. They're among a number of stars enjoying sales bumps after their VMA performances.
