As predicted, Ariana Grande's "My Everything" tops this week's Billboard 200. Selling 169,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, it gives the former Nickelodeon star her second No. 1 album on the chart in less than a year.

Grande's first studio effort, "Yours Truly", also entered Billboard 200 at No. 1. It opened with 138,000 copies sold back on September 2, 2013. This makes Grande the first woman to have her first two albums landed at No. 1 since 2010. The last act to do so was Susan Boyle with 2009's "I Dreamed a Dream" and 2010's "The Gift".

Miles behind Grande's new LP is Brad Paisley's "Moonshine in the Trunk". Selling 53,000, this is the country singer's ninth top 10 album. At No. 3, R&B singer Kem's "Promise to Love" debuts with 52,000 copies.

The soundtrack of "Guardians of the Galaxy" falls from No. 2 to No. 4 with 48,000. Meanwhile, Sam Smith's "In the Lonely Hour" jumps two rungs to No. 5 with 30,000. Last week's first placer, Wiz Khalifa's "Blacc Hollywood", plunges to No. 6 with 30,000.

The "Frozen (2013)" soundtrack bows at No. 7 with 27,000. At No. 8 and No. 9 are the Now 51 compilation and 5 Seconds of Summer's self-titled set that sell additional 25,000 and 22,000 copies respectively.

Closing out the top 10 is the reissue of Avenged Sevenfold's "Waking the Fallen". Marking the rock band's fourth top 10 effort, it sells 22,000 copies. The original album didn't even chart on Billboard 200 following its release back in 2003, but it did hit No. 15 on the Heatseekers Albums chart.
