Her new album is her first Billboard 200 leader since 2002.
Celine Dion re-enters the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Nov. 30) at No. 1 to become the top musical act in the U.S. for the first time, as her new LP Courage launches at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with 113,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music.
The Artist 100 began in 2014 and measures artist activity across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.
Courage is Dion's fifth Billboard 200 No. 1 and first since A New Day Has Come in 2002, as she ends the longest gap between leaders for a female artist in the chart's history.
