SZA’s ‘SOS’ Spends 10th Week Atop Billboard 200

SZA continued her chart reign as SOS remained at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for the 10th non-consecutive week, Billboard reports.

The “Kill Bill” singer entered an exclusive club, whose most recent member is Bad Bunny after Un Verano Sin Ti spent 13 weeks atop the chart. Prior to SZA, Adele was the last female to top the chart for 10 weeks with her highly acclaimed album, 25.

Earlier this month, SZA was named Billboard’s Woman Of The Year, and spoke about her chart dominance. “Right now, I just have extreme gratitude because I swear to God, I never thought I’d be No. 1 for even a week, let alone seven,” she said at the time.

“SZA is a force,” Terrence “Punch” Henderson told the outlet. “To go seven consecutive weeks at No. 1 is legendary. She’s a true generational artist, a cultural reset, if you will. For her album SOS to blend so many different genres together in a cohesive frame shows her genius and versatility. Then you have the voice, the words, the pain, the growth, the relapsing, the delivery, the stories, etc. … a true masterpiece.”

Last week, the singer kicked off her first major arena tour with a show in Columbus, Ohio.

Last night was the first night of my very first arena tour ever,” she wrote on Instagram. “I don’t have words . But thank you. So much.”

Elsewhere on the chart, P!nk’s Trustfall, landed at No. 2, while Taylor Swift’s Midnights clocked in at 3.
