The former Disney star's latest release is set to kick Jay-Z's 'Magna Carta... Holy Grail' from Billboard 200's No. 1 after selling nearly 100,000 copies in its first week.
Selena Gomez will see her new album, "Stars Dance", sitting at No. 1 when the new Billboard 200 chart arrives on Wednesday, July 31. The latest release by the singer, who celebrated her 21st birthday last week, is set to debut at the chart's top slot after selling nearly 100,000 copies in its first week.
"Stars Dance" is Gomez's debut solo album and the first non-rap release to top the chart in more than a month. It dethrones Jay-Z's "Magna Carta... Holy Grail", which has been ruling the chart for two weeks in a row.
Gomez won't let the success of her new album stop her from making new music. She recently told CNN that a follow-up album was on the way. "I'm already in the studio now. I actually started working on new stuff and creating a whole fun, different vibe. It's constantly evolving. I'm super-stoked with where this is, and hopefully it will continue to just get better," she said.
Gomez also revealed her plan to embark on a tour to promote her new offering. "The tour is going to be really fun," Gomez said of her tour in an interview with MTV News. "I also want them to be exhausted when they leave my shows, because I want it to be like a giant rave."
