That?s What I Call Music? with opening week sales of over 165,000. She becomes the second former Destiny’s Child star to top the Billboard charts with a solo album ? Beyonce Knowles achieved that feat with her debut ?Dangerously In Love.?

Williams’ delayed solo debut, ?In My Mind,? entered at number two with 142,000 copies sold, while Petty’s acclaimed ?Highway Companion? sold 112,000 copies to score the highest debut of his career at number four.
