Selena Gomez Dethrones Jay Z On Billboard 200 Chart
It’s been a good month for Selena Gomez.
Following her 21st birthday, the songstress has set a career record by collecting her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. Her latest record, Stars Dance, has sold over 97,000 copies in the first week, knocking out Jay Z‘s Magna Carta Holy Grail from the top spot.
Previously, Gomez’s single, “Come & Get It,” reached No. 1 on the Top 40 radio charts — and the former Disney starlet got pretty teary-eyed about it.
In an emotional video she uploaded onto YouTube, SelGo is seen breaking down when she learns the big news.
“I’ve done four records and this is the first number one that I’ve ever had, so I can not thank you guys enough. I wanna thank every radio station, my label, and the most important of all is my fans for loving the song, for requesting it. It means so much to me,” she says.
