Pink’s ‘Beautiful Trauma’ Shines with 2017’s Biggest Debut for a Woman at No. 1 on Billboard 200

P!nk has claimed her second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with Beautiful Trauma. This puts P!nk atop a list of 2017’s largest week for an album by a woman and the fourth biggest week among all acts. Beautiful Trauma launched with 408,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending October 19th, according to Nielsen Music. Of that number 384,000 were in tradition album sales, which is the best album sales week of the year among all acts releasing music. Beautiful Trauma is the pop singer-songwriter’s second No. 1 album, following 2012’s The Truth About Love, which started atop the list with 280,000 copies sold (before the chart transitioned to a consumption-ranked list in late 2014). In total, Beautiful Trauma is P!nk’s seventh top 10 effort. Beautiful Trauma had the largest sales week among all albums since Drake’s Views debuted with 852,000 copies sold back on May 21st of 2016. Congratulations to P!NK!
