Sia, featured vocalist on such hits as David Guetta‘s “Titanium,” Flo Rida‘s “Wild Ones” and her own current single “Chandelier,” has finally hit the top all by herself. The Australian multi-talent’s sixth studio album 1000 Forms Of Fear has debuted in the peak position of the Billboard 200 (it’s also #1 in her home country this week), marking her first chart-topper here — let alone her first LP to enter the Top 20 in the States.
When all was said and done, Billboard points out that 1000 Forms Of Fear sold 52,000 copies out of the gate — a relatively slow sales week overall — and the lowest total for a #1 album since August 2012.
Still, not bad, considering Sia hasn’t shown her face once during for any official album-campaigning this time around.
