Ella Mai captures her first No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart as her eponymous full-length debut starts at the summit. Ella Mai earned 69,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Oct. 18, according to Nielsen Music.
Mai contains the British singer-songwriter’s breakthrough hits, “Boo’d Up” and “Trip.” The former dominated the Hot R&B Songs chart for 13 weeks earlier this year and set a new record for most weeks at No. 1 by a female artist on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart.
