Beyonce has returned to the top 10 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with "Beyonce: More Only."

The new release, featuring "7/11" and the "Flawless" remix featuring Nicki Minaj, debuts at no.8 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

As previously reported, the chart has been revamped. In addition to counting album sales, the new chart algorithm includes streaming songs.

"The new Billboard 200 chart uses accepted industry benchmarks for digital and streaming data, where 10 digital track sales from an album is equivalent to one album sale, and 1,500 song streams from an album equates to one album sale. All of the major on-demand audio subscription services are considered, including Spotify, Beats Music, Google Play and Xbox Music," reports Billboard.

That said Beyonce's "Beyonce: More Only" arrives with 71,000 copies. Broken down that includes 43,000 album sales, 25,000 track equivalent albums (TEA) and 3,000 streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

In addition to "Beyonce: More Only," the original "Beyonce" sees a lift on the chart moving 199-39 with 25,000 units.
