Lorde’s ‘Melodrama’ Debuts At No. 1 On The Billboard 200

Lorde scores her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with ‘Melodrama.’

The singer’s sophomore LP is 2017’s shiniest pop jewel, and secured a coveted spot atop the charts. It earned 109,000 equivalent album units (82,000 were in traditional album sales), Billboard reports. It also topped Australia's ARIA Albums Chart.

This marks the third album by a woman in a row to hit No. 1 – following Halsey’s hopless fountain kingdom and Katy Perry’s Witness.

“you guys, today we have the number one album in america,” she wrote on Twitter. “From the bottom of my heart, thankyou.”
