Kesha has earned her second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with her new LP Rainbow.
Her latest achieved that spot thanks to 116,000 album equivalent units sold, 89,000 of those being traditional album sales. Those numbers also helped her achieve the second-largest week for a female artist.
Katy Perry’s Witness came in first when it debuted in June. Kesha shared her appreciation on Instagram, writing, “i am so grateful and so lucky and….. at a loss for words.” See her full message below. Her debut album Animal hit No. 1 in 2010.
Kesha has released four music videos from her latest album so far, including “Rainbow,” “Learn to Let Go,” “Woman” (with the Dap Kings), and “Praying.”
