Camila Cabello Album Debuts At No. 1
Camila Cabello is as hot as, well… Havana.
The 20-year-old just became the first female artist in three years to hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart with a full-length debut album.
Her first post-Fifth Harmony album, entitled Camila, sold 119,000 equivalent album units – including 65,000 traditional albums – in its first week, according to Nielsen Music. She earned the top spot on the Billboard 200 dated Jan. 27, which will be published Tuesday.
The last female artist to launch a debut album at No. 1 was Meghan Trainor, whose Title came out in January 2015.
Cabello is also the youngest artist to debut at No. 1 with a full-length album since 2015, when Canada’s Shawn Mendes, then 16, released Handwritten and the youngest female since Ariana Grande in 2013.
Cabello knocked The Greatest Showman soundtrack from its two-week reign at No. 1.
The rest of the Top 5 consists of Ed Sheeran’s ÷, Post Malone’s Stoney, and Taylor Swift’s Reputation.
