The good news train just stopped at K. Michelle’s station.
Though failing to debut at #1, the singer’s brand new album ‘Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart’ opened with sales of 83,404 units this week, debuting at #4 on the ‘Billboard 200.’
Standing tall as the highest selling R&B album in the country this week, the album’s numbers have seen outperform Pop releases launched by ‘AKA’ singer Jennifer Lopez, ‘Heartbreaker’ performer Mariah Carey, ‘Wiggle’ sensation Jason Derulo and the ever ‘Fancy’ Iggy Azalea, all of whom failed to see the first week sales of their latest studio albums match hers.
In other chart news, Nicki Minaj will be pleased to learn that her new single ‘Only‘ now sits at #12 on the ‘Billboard Hot 100′, rising 20 spots in the last seven days.
This, adding a fresh pair of legs to the record she holds for being the only female rapper to have appeared in the ‘Hot 100’s Top Twenty as many times as she has.
Her latest chart win comes as global sales of her latest studio album ‘The Pinkprint‘ are set to push her overall album sales closer to the 8 million sold worldwide milestone.
