Celine Dion’s album Courage is at the top of Billboard 200 in over 17 years. It marks a strong comeback for the artist as 113,000 copies of the album were sold within the first week of its release on Nov. 15.
Dion was last seen reaching number one album in 2002’s A New Day Has Come. The singer broke the record of the longest gap for a woman.
Courage was the French-Canadian’s fifth album to reach number one. The 1996 album Falling Into You was the first one in the singer’s career to reach the top of the charts.
Dion is now part of a select number of female singers to have a No. 1 album in each past three past decades. The only other singers are Janet Jackson, Barbra Streisand and Britney Spears.
