It's Grande's second No. 1 album in less than a year, following her 'Yours Truly' debut.
Ariana Grande's new album My Everything has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, giving the 21-year-old pop singer two No. 1 albums in less than a year. She's the first woman to debut at No. 1 with her first two albums since 2010.
The rest of the new Billboard 200 chart's top 10, along with My Everything's official sales figure for the week ending Aug. 31 (as compiled by Nielsen SoundScan data), will be revealed on Wednesday, Sept. 3.
My Everything, which was released on Aug. 25, is the follow-up to Grande's first album, Yours Truly. The latter came out on Sept. 2, 2013, and also opened atop the Billboard 200. Grande is the first woman since Susan Boyle to see her first two albums debut at No. 1. Boyle did it with I Dreamed a Dream (released in 2009) and The Gift (2010).
My Everything features three singles that have reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart: "Problem" featuring Iggy Azalea (which peaked at No. 2), "Break Free" featuring Zedd (No. 4) and her collaboration with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj, "Bang Bang" (No. 6). ("Bang Bang" is only available on the deluxe version of the album.) On the Hot 100 chart dated Aug. 30, all three of those songs were in the top 10 at the same time, making Grande only the second lead female artist to have three concurrent top 10 hits. (Only Adele, among lead-billed women, had done it previously.)
