Update: The tracks from Beyonce’s newly released “Lemonade” are making considerable noise on the US iTunes single sales chart.

By 1PM ET Monday, four of the album’s tracks were in the Top 5. All twelve were inside the Top 35.

1) Formation
3) Sorry
4) Hold Up
5) 6 Inch (featuring The Weeknd)
8) Freedom (featuring Kendrick Lamar)
12) Don’t Hurt Yourself (featuring Jack White)
13) All Night
17) Pray You Catch Me
19) Sandcastles
21) Daddy Lessons
26) Love Drought
33) Forward (featuring James Blake)

As expected, Beyonce’s new visual album “Lemonade” made its iTunes debut early Monday morning.

It, predictably, flew to #1 on the US album sales chart, dethroning the late Prince’s “The Very Best Of Prince” in the process.

Numerous tracks, meanwhile, have soared up the single sales chart.

“Formation,” the one track with which music fans were familiar prior to Saturday’s HBO special, is leading the way. As of 10:40AM ET, it is #4 on the all-genre US sales chart.

“Sorry,” which features the already infamous “Becky With The Good Hair” line, is next up at #12. “Hold Up,” which contains an interpolation of Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Maps,” follows at #13.

Here is how the full track list is presently positioned:

4) Formation
12) Sorry
13) Hold Up
17) 6 Inch (featuring The Weeknd)
22) Freedom (featuring Kendrick Lamar)
24) Don’t Hurt Yourself (featuring Jack White)
28) All Night
32) Pray You Catch Me
38) Sandcastles
40) Daddy Lessons
49) Love Drought
74) Forward (featuring James Blake)
