Shania Twain Debuts on Top of Billboard 200 Albums Chart

UMG Nashville

Shania Twain has debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart with Now, her first studio album in nearly 15 years, according to Billboard‘s Oct. 8 report.

Now earned the top slot with 137,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 5, according to Nielsen Music. As explained by Billboard, 134,000 of these were in traditional album sales — which marks the third-largest sales week for a country album in 2017, and the largest for a woman in nearly two years.

Now is Twain’s second No. 1 album (her first was 2002’s Up!) and the first chart-topping country set by a female artist in more than three years. The set also claims the biggest sales frame for a country album by a woman since Carrie Underwood’s Storyteller.

Additionallly, it’s also the second country album to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2017, following Thomas Rhett’s Life Changes.

Coming in directly behind Twain on the chart is the late Tom Petty‘s 1993 Greatest Hits collection with his band the Heartbreakers. Petty died Oct. 2 after suffering a full cardiac arrest.
