Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston has every reason to feel like a “Million Dollar Bill.” The pop diva’s new album enters the charts at No. 1, becoming the biggest first-week sales of her career and the best-selling first week by a female artist this year.

Houston’s first album in seven years, I Look to You, debuts with 304,801 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. This is her fourth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200. Outside the U.S., she holds the No. 1 spot in Canada, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland.

These numbers are Houston’s best opening sales week since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking data in 1991. Her previous best first week was in 2002 with Just Whitney (205,000). I Look to You is also the singer’s first No. 1 since The Bodyguard soundtrack spent 20 weeks at No. 1 in 1993.

Elsewhere on the charts, Trey Songz’s Ready has the second-biggest debut of the week, landing at No. 3 with 131,000, while Pitbull’s Rebelution makes it way in at No. 8 with 41,000.
