This summer has been rather unremarkable in terms of new music, with Jay Z remaining on top of the charts with his latest album. But as of today, he’s finally been dethroned – Dancing With The Stars guest Selena Gomez now boasts the top album!
While her ex-boyfriend deals with one scandal after the other, Selena Gomez is wrapping up a truly amazing July. The singer-actress just turned 21 and has been busy with plenty of festivities, including a jam with Jay Leno and a smaller party with a close group of friends. But as great as all the partying has been, Selena insists that she’s happiest with news of her new album’s rise to the top of the charts. After tweeting out a huge thank you for all the birthday wishes, the celeb added, “The success of this album has been the greatest gift!”
Really, Selena’s little boast about the success of her album is very understated, for, given the lack of activity on the charts this summer, knocking Jay Z from the number one spots is quite the feat. Until now, he’s been sitting pretty, continually nabbing the most sales of the highly acclaimed Magna Carta…Holy Grail. The Selena Gomez album Stars Dance is different from Jay Z’s collection in almost every conceivable manner, but that doesn’t stop it from being a hit with listeners. And they have shown their appreciation for Selena’s catchy tunes by turning out in droves to buy her album. The numbers tell the true story, as Stars Dance sold an impressive 97,000 copies last week.
