Charli XCX broke the internet with her debut album Brat, and she’s getting credits where credit is due. It became her highest-charting album on the Billboard 200 chart during its debut week, after hitting No. 3.

Brat entered the chart with 82,000 equivalent album units earned, including 45,000 in album sales, 37,000 SEA units (equaling 46.72 million on-demand official streams of its deluxe edition’s 18 songs), and TEA units in the range of 1,000.

This is both the largest sales week and streaming week of the singer’s career, in addition to being her largest week on the Billboard 200 chart overall. Brat is her second album to enter the top ten in the US, following the success of her previous album Crash at No. 7.

Charli XCX’s latest album also found success in the UK, where it hit No. 2 with the biggest opening week of her career. It also landed No. 1 on the Official Vinyl Albums Chart and Official Record Store Chart in this country due to the success of its physical formats.

Brat was released on June 7 via Atlantic Records, while its deluxe edition featuring three more songs dropped just three days later. Charli XCX promoted its release with the lead single “Von Dutch” and a star-studded music video for “360”.
