Gwen Stefani Scores First No. 1 Album As A Solo Artist


Forget the truth, this is what success feels like. After two previous tries, the 46-year-old singer scores her first-ever No. 1 album as a solo act with This Is What The Truth Feels Like. During her No Doubt days, she shot to the top with Tragic Kingdom (1995).

According to Billboard, her third solo LP earned 84,000 equivalent album units and sold 76,000 copies in pure album sales. Though third time proved to be the charm for Gwen Stefani, only time will tell if her new album will reach the numbers of its predecessors.

Love. Angel. Music. Baby. and The Sweet Escape sold 4 million and 1.7 million domestically respectively. To boot, both those LPs spawned a pair of Top 10 singles each. So far, her new singles haven’t even cracked the Top 50, despite being quite solid.
