Jordan Smith is now the best-selling artist in The Voice history. His full-length debut album, Something Beautiful, came in at number two on the Billboard Top 200 album chart, scoring sales of more than 54,000 units in its first week.
The season-nine champ now holds the record for highest-charting album and most first-week album sales for a contestant on The Voice. He surpasses the number-six peak of both Melanie Martinez’s Cry Baby and Sawyer Fredericks’ The Voice: The Complete Season 8 Collection. Jordan also tops the opening sales week of Cassadee Pope’s Frame by Frame, which sold 43,000 units.
Jordan additionally shattered the record for the highest album sales debut from a new artist so far this year, period, and has achieved the highest ranking on the Billboard album chart by any winner of a TV singing competition in almost five years.
Jordan will return to The Voice for a performance on April 13. He also has performances lined up for The Tavis Smiley Show on April 5 and Steve Harvey April 18.
