Considering the massive success Beyoncé had all month long, we might have to rename April to Beypril.

As previously reported, the "Formation" singer released her sixth studio album, Lemonade, on all streaming platforms, including Spotify and Apple Music, on Tuesday (April 23). This week, the critically acclaimed LP returned to the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 200 chart.

The album, first released in April 2016, charted at No. 9 on the list with 30,000 equivalent album units. It wasn't Queen Bey's only achievement on the charts this week, either. In addition to her three-year-old album, Yoncé's surprise album, Homecoming: The Live Album, released alongside her well-received Netflix documentary of the same name, also made strides on the chart as well.

After initially debuting at No. 7, the album jumped up three spots to No. 4 moving 57,000 equivalent album units, Billboard reports. With both Lemonade and Homecoming in the top 10, Beyoncé became the first female artist to have two albums simultaneously on the coveted albums chart in more than two years. Lady Gaga was the last to pull off the impressive feat back in 2017 after her Super Bowl halftime performance.

This also marks the first time in Beyoncé's 22-year career that she has two concurrent top 10 sets on the Billboard 200 chart.

The "Crazy in Love" performer has six consecutive solo No. 1 albums to her name. Lemonade debuted at No. 1 when it was first released selling 653,000 album-equivalent units in its first week. The album was last recorded in the top 10 on Billboard following her performance at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards in 2017.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé's self-titled album, released in 2013, and 2008's I Am… Sasha Fierce also charted on Billboard this week. It's safe to safe major congrats are in order for Mrs. Carter.
