Selena Gomez Scores Her Best Sales Week Yet
July 31, 2013

Selena Gomez has earned her first #1 album and the best sales week of her career as her latest effort, Stars Dance, bows at #1 on the chart with 97,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Gomez, who just turned 21 last week, is also the youngest solo female artist to hit #1 since Taylor Swift did it in 2010. On the chart dated November 13 of that year, the then-20-year old Swift debuted on top with Speak Now, according to Billboard.com. Gomez also bumps Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail down to #2 with 77,000, and the soundtrack to Teen Beach Movie is #3 with 57,000 sold.

Meanwhile, Kidz Bop 24 falls to #4 this week with 39,000, and Marc Anthony's new Spanish-language album, 3.0, debuts at #5 by shifting nearly 39,000 units. 3.0 marks Anthony's best sales week and highest-charting set since his 2002 English album, Mended, debuted and peaked at #3 with 111,000. Florida Georgia Line is in the #6 slot with Here's to the Good Times, selling 30,000, and Imagine Dragons' Night Visions is #7 with another 27,000 sold.

Hard rockers
We Came As Romans open at #8 this week with Tracing Back Roots, selling 26,000 and giving the band its best sales week yet. Debuting at #9 is the Rich Gang compilation from Young Money and Cash Money Records, which shifted 24,000 copies. Rounding out the Top 10 is Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience, which moved 21,000.
