Camila Cabello Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart
By Keith Caulfield | January 21, 2018 4:59 PM EST

Camila Cabello debuts atop the Billboard 200 chart with her first solo effort, Camila, earning 119,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Jan. 18, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 65,000 were in traditional album sales. Cabello is the first woman in three years to hit No. 1 with her debut full-length album.

Camila was released on January 12 through SYCO/Epic Records.

Camila’s launch of 119,000 is larger than expected, as some industry forecasters projected the set would begin with around 90,000 units, and was in a race for No. 1 with the soundtrack to The Greatest Showman. As it turns out, The Greatest Showman — which had spent the past two weeks at No. 1 — falls to No. 2 with 104,000 units (increasing by 1 percent compared to the previous week). The Greatest Showman actually beats Camila in traditional album sales (70,000 vs. 65,000) and is the top-selling album of the week. Camila was able to come out on top on the Billboard 200 over The Greatest Showman thanks to TEA units and SEA units. Camila earned 16,000 TEA units (vs. 8,000 for Showman) and 38,000 SEA units (vs. 26,000 for Showman).

Cabello is the first woman to reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with her debut full-length album in three years – since Meghan Trainor’s Title (also on Epic) opened atop the list dated Jan. 31, 2015. (Trainor had a previous EP, also named Title, which reached No. 15.) If we count all initial chart appearances by women (including EPs), Cabello is the first woman to top the list with her first overall charting effort since Ariana Grande bowed at No. 1 with her first full-length album — and chart debut — Yours Truly on Sept. 21, 2013.

Cabello also joins an exclusive club of female performers who initially reached the Billboard 200 as part of a group, and then later hit No. 1 with a solo album. Cabello was formerly a member of the all-female vocal group Fifth Harmony, which claimed three top 10s while Cabello was in the group. Cabello departed Fifth Harmony in December of 2016.

Cabello follows Gwen Stefani (No Doubt), Beyoncé and LeToya (both of Destiny’s Child), Lauryn Hill (Fugees), Patti LaBelle (Labelle), Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac), Linda Ronstadt (The Stone Poneys), Diana Ross (The Supremes) and Janis Joplin (Big Brother and the Holding Company).

In addition, as Cabello is just 20 years and 10 months old, she is the youngest person to debut at No. 1 with their first full-length album since 2015, when a 16-year-old Shawn Mendes opened at No. 1 with Handwritten on the May 2, 2015-dated chart. Cabello is the youngest woman to bow at No. 1 with her first full-length set since 2013, when Ariana Grande (then 20 years and two months old) debuted at No. 1 with Yours Truly (Sept. 21, 2013).

At No. 3 on the new Billboard 200, Ed Sheeran’s ÷ (Divide) slips one rung (47,000 units; down 10 percent). Post Malone’s Stoney climbs 5-4 (35,000 units; down 5 percent) and Taylor Swift’s Reputation is up 6-5 (just over 33,000 units; down 9 percent). G-Eazy’s The Beautiful & Damned falls 3-6 (33,000 units; down 12 percent), Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. ascends 8-7 (30,000 units; down 15 percent), Eminem’s Revival slips 7-8 (29,000 units; down 20 percent) and Lil Uzi Vert’s Luv Is Rage 2 hops 11-9 (28,000; down 4 percent).

Rapper Lil Skies is a new visitor to the top 10, as his album Life of a Dark Rose jumps 23-10 with 28,000 units (up 65 percent) in its second chart week. Powered largely by streams, the set collected 25,000 in SEA units, equaling 37 million on-demand audio streams for its songs during the tracking week. Songs leading the streaming charge for the album include “Nowadays” and “Red Roses,” both featuring Landon Cube, “Lust” and “Welcome to the Rodeo.” Both “Nowadays” and “Red Roses” ranked within the top 40 of the most recently announced Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (dated Jan. 20).

Camila Cabello Joins Elite Group of Women to Hit No. 1 Solo on the Billboard 200 After Charting in a Group
1/21/2018 by Keith Caulfield

As previously reported, Camila Cabello debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with her first solo album, Camila. The set — released through SYCO/Epic Records on Jan. 12 — earned 119,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 18, according to Nielsen Music.

With Cabello’s arrival at No. 1, she joins an exclusive club of female performers who initially reached the Billboard 200 as part of a group, and then later hit No. 1 with a solo album. Cabello was formerly a member of the all-female vocal group Fifth Harmony, which claimed three top 10s while Cabello was in the group. Cabello departed Fifth Harmony in December of 2016.

Here’s a look at the ladies who hit No. 1 after previously scoring chart success with a group.

Gwen Stefani
Stefani notched her first solo No. 1 album in 2016 with her third solo studio effort, This Is What the Truth Feels Like (April 9, 2016-dated chart). Her first solo album, Love. Angel. Music. Baby., was released in 2004, years after her band No Doubt had made a name for itself on the chart. No Doubt first dented the chart on Jan. 20, 1996, when its Tragic Kingdom album arrived at No. 175. The set would eventually climb to No. 1 that December, and the band would follow with five more charting efforts — most recently 2012’s No. 3-peaking Push and Shove.

LeToya
LeToya’s self-titled album opened atop the list dated Aug. 12, 2006 — a little over five years after she departed the pop/R&B vocal group Destiny’s Child. While LeToya was a member of Destiny’s Child, the group scored a pair of charting albums: Destiny’s Child (No. 67 in 1998) and The Writing’s on the Wall (No. 5 in 2000).

Beyoncé
Another member of Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé, stormed out of the gate in 2003 with her debut solo studio set, Dangerously in Love. The album — led by the smash single "Crazy In Love," featuring JAY-Z — debuted at No. 1, and Beyoncé has since followed it with five more chart-topping efforts. (By the time Dangerously in Love was released, Beyoncé’s time with Destiny’s Child had yielded five charting albums for the group, including its first No. 1, 2001’s Survivor.)

Lauryn Hill
Before Hill debuted at No. 1 with her first solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (Sept. 12, 1998), she was a member of Fugees, who claimed two entries on the list, including the No. 1 The Score (1996).

Patti LaBelle
The R&B diva notched her first (and so far only) solo No. 1 with The Winner in You on the July 19, 1986-dated list. Before she released her self-titled debut album in 1977, her trio Labelle scored three charting sets: Nightbirds (No. 7 in 1974), Phoenix (No. 44 in 1975) and Chameleon (No. 94 in 1976). (Labelle originally started as the Bluebelles, then morphed into Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles.)

Stevie Nicks
Nicks started her solo career with a bang — reaching No. 1 with her first album, Bella Donna, on the Sept. 5, 1981-dated Billboard 200. Before that, Fleetwood Mac (which Nicks joined in 1974) notched three albums with Nicks in the group: a self-titled album (No. 1 in 1976), Rumours (No. 1 in 1977), and Tusk (No. 3 in 1979).

Linda Ronstadt
Before Linda Ronstadt hit No. 1 as a soloist (with Heart Like a Wheel in 1975), she had dented the chart as a member of the Stone Poneys. The trio reached No. 100 in 1968 with the album Evergreen, Vol. 2.

Diana Ross
Ross topped the list as a solo act for the first time with 1973's Lady Sings the Blues (the soundtrack to the film of the same name, starring Ross). Before that, as a member of the Supremes (and later Diana Ross & the Supremes), the group claimed a trio of chart-toppers between 1966 and 1969.

Janis Joplin
The rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company, with Joplin as its lead singer, hit the chart twice: with its 1967 self-titled set (reaching No. 60) and its hugely successful follow-up, Cheap Thrills (No. 1 for eight weeks in 1968). Joplin departed the group after Cheap Thrills, and released her solo debut in 1969: I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama!, which reached No. 5 that same year. After Joplin died in 1970, her first posthumous album, Pearl, was released in 1971 and spent nine weeks at No. 1.

Lastly, an honorary mention goes to Selena Gomez, who notched three albums first with Selena Gomez & the Scene, before going totally solo with the No. 1 album Stars Dance in 2013.
