Selena Gomezhas scored her first ever No.1 album in America… knocking Jay-Z from the top spot.
The Come & Get It singer has previously failed to reach the summit with her last three LPs with her band the scene, with solo record Stars Dance blasting its way to the top of the Billboard 200 countdown.
According to figures provided by Nielsen SoundScan, Justin Bieber's ex managed to shift a cool 97,000 copies to replace Jigga at No.1.
After two weeks at the top, Hov dropped down a slot as sales of Magna Carta Holy Grail were off 40 percent to 77,000 for a three-week total just shy of 735,000.
Selena celebrated her chart success by posting a snap of herself, baby sister Gracie Elliot and her dancers, accompanied with the caption: "#1! From the Stars Dance tour and lil G... THANK YOU."
Gomez previously revealed that she played her chart-topping album to pals Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato, adding that Stars Dance is her most mature record to date.
