“Guts,” the second album from singer Olivia Rodrigo, debuted this week at the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart, with 302,000 units sold in the U.S.
The return of young singer Olivia Rodrigo to the music scene has had a big impact, and that is reflected in the sales of her second album Guts, which debuted this week at #1 on the Billboard 200.
In the U.S., Guts has sold 302,000 units – distributed in digital downloads, CD, cassette and vinyl – easily topping the charts, making Rodrigo the first female artist in nine years to debut at #1 in sales with her first two musical productions (the previous one was 2021’s Sour). Three singles from the album have been released so far: “Vampire” -which topped the Billboard Hot 100-, “Bad idea right?” and “Get him back”.
The good sales of Olivia Rodrigo’s second album were also reinforced by the singer’s performance at the last MTV VMAs (where she was nominated for several awards, but only won one) and rumors of an alleged rivalry with singer Taylor Swift, something Olivia has neither denied nor confirmed in recent interviews. She also unveiled -through her Instagram account- the dates of her Guts world tour, which will start in 2024.
