Joanne has given Lady Gaga a fourth visit to the top of the Billboard 200, and is also her fourth consecutive release to cap the chart. The singer previously hit #1 with Born This Way, Artpop and Cheek To Cheek. Gaga’s best-selling album, her debut The Fame, peaked at #2, while follow-up EP The Fame Monster reached #5.

Altogether, Joanne moved 201,000 equivalent album units, 174,000 of which were sales. That’s up from the 131,000 Gaga’s Grammy-winning Tony Bennett pair-up Cheek To Cheek opened with in fall 2014, though down from the 258,000 Artpop started with a year prior. Joanne now has the fourth-largest opening in 2016, behind Drake‘s Views (1.04 million), Beyonce‘s Lemonade (653,000) and Frank Ocean‘s Blonde (276,000).

Joanne also leads a slew of seven total album that fly into the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 this week, with only previous mainstays Views, the Suicide Squad soundtrack and the Hamilton Broadway cast recording remaining.
