The final numbers are in, and it appears that Beyonce 's electrifying Super Bowl performance alongside her Destiny's Child pals, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams , has resulted in a surge of album sales for the whole crew. 

Bey's solo albums sold 9,000 in the week ending Feb. 3, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That's a 119-percent boost compared to the previous week, Billboard points out.  As for Destiny's Child, the group moved 11,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan.  That's a 328-percent boost.

Some of the group's sales are thanks to the release of their latest compilation album, Love Songs , which sold 6,000 copies in its first week out, according to Nielsen SoundScan.  The disc, which includes new song "Nuclear," debuts at #72 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart.

Bey, Kelly and Michelle didn't perform the Pharrell Williams -produced "Nuclear" during their halftime reunion, but the song still moved 4,000 downloads in its first week out, according to Nielsen SoundScan.  Of all of Destiny Child's singles, the group's 2000 smash "Say My Name," shifted the most units last week.  The song sold 6,000 last week, representing a 231-percent boost.  Nostalgic fans also snatched up "Survivor," which sold 5,000 units, up 168-percent, and "Independent Women (Part 1)," moved 4,000, up 550-percent.

Overall, Beyonce and Destiny's Child sparked 167,000 downloads for the week ending Feb. 3.  That's a 132-percent jump.  The biggest seller was Beyonce's "Halo."  The halftime closer moved 19,000 downloads, up 338-percent.

Perhaps more big numbers are on the way next week after a full seven days of sales is analyzed.
