Must Read

SZA’s latest album continues to dominate Billboard’s charts. The Top Dawg Entertainment songstress logged in another major milestone this week as SOS tops the Billboard 200 for a seventh straight week (dated Feb. 4) — after earning 111,000 equivalent album units in the U.S.

With this feat, Billboard reports SZA’s second studio LP becomes the first R&B album to spend its first seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 since ‘Whitney’ by Whitney Houston in 1987. The album also spends the most weeks at No. 1 for an album by a woman since Taylor Swift’s 2020 album Folklore and Adele’s 2016 album 25.

At its sixth week at no. 1, SOS achieved the most weeks at No. 1 for an R&B album since Usher’s Confessions, which earned nine nonconsecutive weeks in 2004. SOS has also had the most weeks at No. 1 for an R&B/Hip-Hop album since Drake’s Views.

Officially released on Dec. 9, 2022, SOS contains 23 songs and features Don Toliver, Phoebe Bridgers, Travis Scott, and Ol’ Dirty Bastard. The Grammy Award-winning singer has already teased the possibility of a deluxe version of the chart-topping album.

The fan-favorite track “Kill Bill” currently sits at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart after getting dethroned by Miley Cyrus’ Flowers.

As for Whitney Houston, her 1987 album Whitney debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and remained there for 11 straight weeks. Do you think SZA could topple Whitney’s record with SOS?
