As The ‘SOS’' Supremacy Goes On, SZA Equals Janet Jackson's 30-Year Chart Milestone

Thanks to SOS’s popularity, SZA is cementing her legacy in R&B history.

This week’s Billboard 200 saw the TDE singer’s sophomore LP, the eagerly anticipated Ctrl follow-up, reclaim the top spot for the fourth consecutive week.

The project, according to Billboard, sold an additional 125,000 units despite competition from albums like Her Loss by Drake and 21 Savage and Midnights by Taylor Swift and Metro Boomin.

Since Janet Jackson’s 1993 album, “Janet,” spent its first four weeks at No. 1, “SOS” is the first R&B album by a woman to do the same, placing SZA in elite company.
