Rihanna just landed her second No. 1 album.

The singer’s new release, Anti, just hit first place on the Billboard 200 chart, and according to Billboard, the album sold 166,000 units in the week ending Feb. 4. (124,000 of those units were pure album sales.)

Last week, Anti debuted at No. 27 on the list, since it was released towards the end of the tracking week, and this week marks the album’s first full week of sales. Anti was also briefly available to download for free, and those free downloads don’t count toward its chart numbers.
