SZA‘s latest album, S.O.S., has proved itself a commercial success. The album —her first project since 2017’s Ctrl — debuted at No.1 on Billboard 200 following its release last year. The 22-track album has stayed atop the charts for nearly eight weeks, a record once previously held by Taylor Swift‘s Folklore album. That means that S.O.S is the first album by a woman to spend eight weeks at No.1 on the Billboard 200, which is pretty impressive.
“SOS’ by @SZA is the first album by a woman to spend eight weeks at #1 on the Billboard 200 since @TaylorSwift13’s ‘folklore,” Pop Crave reports.
