That’s pretty damn impressive! I’ve got some high hopes for this new album. Got a feeling that her single may be #1 next week, which would make her the only other artist to have multiple debut #1’s other then Mariah Carey (3 times) and the first to have them back to back. She had her first #1 debut last year with “3”!
