Selena Gomez Nabs First No. 1 Album!

Selena Gomez fans took the title of her new single, "Come & Get It," quite literally if "it" refers to her new album, Stars Dance. The record debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, delivering the singer-actress her first chart-topper. 

With standout tracks like "Write Your Name" (above) and the EDM jam "Undercover" (below), Stars Dance sold 97,000 copies in its first week. It's a career high for Gomez, who last hit the charts with 2011's When the Sun Goes Down, which sold 78,000 copies in its first week and later peaked at No. 3.

The Stars Dance sales were enough to topple Jay Z's Magna Carta... Holy Grail down to the No. 2 slot after a two-week stint at No. 1.

And with Stars Dance, Gomez, who just turned 21 years old, is the youngest solo female artist to snag the top slot since 2010, when a 20-year-old Taylor Swift debuted at No. 1 with Speak Now.
