BIG CONGRATS to Gwen Stefani!!
— billboard (@billboard) March 28, 2016
Today Gwen went straight to No. 1 with the release of ‘This Is What the Truth Feels Like’, her third studio album.
This is her first-ever solo LP to reach the coveted top spot on the Billboard 200!
According to Nielsen Music, ‘This Is What the Truth Feels Like’ sold 84,000 equivalent album units during its first week in stores, 76,000 of them pure album sales. Billboard ranks an album’s success based on multi-metric consumption (including traditional album sales and track equivalent albums) and streaming equivalent albums.
And it gets even better – she is also now 1 of only 5 iconic women with #1 albums both solo, and with a band or group. Others include Janis Joplin, Stevie Knicks, Lauryn Hill and Beyonce!
Amazing! Congratulations Gwen Stefani!
