Olivia Rodrigo made quite a splash with her sophomore album Guts, and she’s getting credit where credit is due. Her second studio album easily soared to the top of the Billboard 200 chart in the United States, in addition to topping the charts around the world.

Guts debuted at No. 1 with 302,000 equivalent album units earned in the United States during its first week on the Billboard 200. In addition to selling 150,000 units in pure album sales, including 94,000 in vinyl sales alone, Rodrigo’s new album also scored SEA units 151,000, equaling to 199.59 million streams across the album’s 12 tracks.

Guts marks Rodrigo’s second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, and it even managed to outsell Sour by approximately 7,000 units during its first week on the chart. It also debuted at No. 1 in the UK with 60,300 chart units during its first week, outselling the rest of the top ten on the Official U.K. Albums Chart combined.

Guts hit the shelves on September 8, and Rodrigo celebrated its release by dropping the music video for the third single “Get Him Back!”, which was filmed on a new iPhone 15 Pro. She also announced the Guts World Tour, which includes a total of 75 days, taking place across North America and Europe next year.
