Alicia Keys plants her flag atop the R&B world yet again as the singer/songwriter’s latest studio album, Alicia, debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart. The set, released Sept. 18, earned 62,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 24, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
Alicia becomes the performer’s second No. 1 on Top R&B Albums, which began in 2012, a little more than a decade into her career. It follows Here, which reigned for one week in 2016. Keys also released two more projects that have reached Top R&B Albums: Girl on Fire (No. 2) and VH1 Storytellers (No. 9) both in 2013.
