In a career that spanned three decades, pop icon Whitney Houston had a career full of ‘firsts’. From being the first artist to sell 1 million copies of a single album or record in a week to being the first female to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200, Houston’s storied career has had more achievements alone than many of her contemporaries combined. And, in an awe-inspiring Billboard report, it looks like she has no plans on stopping.
For, as fans know, this week saw the late pop star become the first woman in history to land 3 albums in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 simultaneously. Now, reports have surfaced she is set to best herself in such achievement:
“…Houston’s “Whitney: The Greatest Hits” could end up at No. 2 for a third straight week, while joined in the top 10 by the Houston-led “The Bodyguard” soundtrack, “Whitney Houston” and “I Look To You.” The new Billboard 200 chart’s top 10 will be revealed on the morning of Wednesday, March 7.”
As Whitney would then become the first female in history to simultaneously have 4 albums in the Billboard 200 top 10, industry insiders are expecting to see more sales of the hitmaker’s catalogue in common weeks. Next week’s showing, of course, is contingent on the event that no sudden spike in sales of other albums occur due to promotions or other unforeseen events.
Elsewhere on the chart, Adele is set to notch her 23rd week at #1 with ’21’ as it is expected to move another 200k. Her Grammy win also helped move sales of her first album ’19’ and it too is set to make a reappearance in next week’s top 10.
Looks like it’s the Whitney & Adele show!
