Pop superstar Selena Gomez is reaching new levels of success these days. The young singer and actress managed to score her very first No. 1 title on the Billboard 200 chart, with her latest album ‘Stars Dance’. The ‘Who Says’ singer’s fourth studio album – released via Hollywood Records – sold 97,000 copies in its first week, which marks a career-high frame for Gomez.

Selena Gomez reaches her first No. 1 with Stars Dance album

Each of the ‘Hit The Lights’ singer’s four albums have steadily grown bigger when it comes to their debut weeks, in turn resulting in successively larger sums and better placing on the charts. The pop superstar’s 2009 debut album, titled ‘Kiss and Tell’, opened at No. 9 and sold 66,000 copies in its first week. It was then followed by ‘A Year Without Rain’, released in 2010, which entered the chart at No. 4 and exceeded 66,000 copies in sale. After that, the 2011 release ‘When The Sun Goes Down’ sold 78,000 copies and peaked at No. 3, after it launched at No. 4.

Gomez also had her biggest hit yet in 2013, as the first single from ‘Stars Dance’, track titled ‘Come and Get It’ reached No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 (the star’s first top 10). Gomez – who just turned 21 – is the youngest female solo artist to reach No. 1 since her friend, fellow pop star Taylor Swift also did it in 2010.

The ‘Slow Down’ singer bumped Jay Z’s ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ down to No. 2 spot, after it ruled the chart for two weeks.
