Solange lands first No. 1 album with 'A Seat At The Table'
The release beat out Bon Iver's new album on the Billboard 200
Solange nabbed her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart this week with her new fiery release, A Seat At the Table. The collection earned 72,000 equivalent album units, 46,000 of which were from traditional album sales, this week, Billboard reports.
Bon Iver’s 22, A Million landed the No. 2 spot, earning 71,000 units, 58,000 of which were from traditional album sales.
Solange also called A Seat At the Table “a tribute to both my mother and father” in an interview with her mother Tina Knowles. “We grew up in a household with two parents who constantly celebrated Blackness and created forums and spaces to empower Black communities,” Solange said. “This might feel new for other people, but it is surely not new for me.”
