Alicia Keys Lights Up Charts with Fifth #1 Album "Girl on Fire"

RCA RecordsAlicia Keys' album sales are on fire.  Her new album Girl on Fire has debuted at #1 on the Billboard album chart, becoming the fifth chart-topper of her career. 

That being said, the first-week sales total of Girl on Fire is the smallest of any previous Alicia album -- she started with 159,000 sold, according to Nielsen Soundscan.

Alicia's first four albums -- three studio albums and one live record -- all reached #1 as well.  Her last album, 2009's The Element of Freedom, only reached #2 because it was held off by Susan Boyle's blockbuster I Dreamed a Dream.
