Alicia Keys’ album blazed a trail to #1! Girl on Fire is projected to debut at the top of the Billboard after selling about 159,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
This is Alicia’s fifth #1 album, but Girl On Fire has seen her lowest first-week album sales to date. However, her 2009 release Elements of Freedom sold 417,000 copies, but entered the Billboard 200 at #2.
