"Ultraviolence" debuts at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200 - 182,000 first week sales

Recommended Posts

Becoming Lana Del Rey's first ever number 1 album! :excited:

 

Singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey captures her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, as "Ultraviolence" bows atop the list. The album, which was released June 17, sold 182,000 in the week ending June 22, according to Nielsen SoundScan — her best sales week yet.

Del Rey's arrival is the largest sales week for a female artist since the week ending Dec. 29, 2013, when Beyonce's self-titled album sold 310,000 in its third week on the chart.

"Ultraviolence" follows Del Rey's major-label debut album, "Born to Die," which Polydor/Interscope Records released in January 2012. It debuted and peaked at No. 2 with 77,000 sold in its first week (ending Feb. 5, 2012). Del Rey has also charted two EPs: a self-titled effort that hit No. 20 and "Paradise," which reached No. 10.

"Born to Die" surpassed 1 million in sales earlier this year in February. Its cumulative total stands at nearly 1.1 million.

Notably, "Ultraviolence" captures the No. 1 slot even though Del Rey hasn't performed on American TV in more than two years. She is seemingly taking the less-is-more approach when it comes to promoting the new set, having done only a handful of U.S. print interviews. She has, however, toured and released a number of music videos for "Ultraviolence." (Del Rey's last U.S. TV performance? The March 22, 2012 edition of "American Idol.")
