Move over, Jay Z. Selena Gomez and her ‘Stars’ danced its way into the No. 1 slot on the Billboard Top 200, knocking The Hov out of the top slot.

Sel scored her very first chart-topping album with ‘Stars Dance,’ which released the day after her 21st birthday, capping off a celebratory and busy week that saw the singer partying and promoting.

The album sold 97,000 copies its first week in stores, which was a career high for the singer and actress, according to Billboard bean counters.

Sel has enjoyed a steady increase in sales with each of her four albums. They sell more albums and place higher on the charts each time out. So while she has said this might be her final album so she can focus on acting, her personal trend and the reception of the album could make her change her mind.

Her previous album ‘When the Sun Goes Down’ debuted at No. 4 with 78,000 sold and peaked at No. 3. Additionally, ‘Come & Get It’ is her biggest single to date, peaking at No. 1. Her stats trend up, as opposed to down. Maybe she won’t want to quit while she is ahead.

Gomez also shares an honor with her bestie Taylor Swift. Sel is the youngest solo female artist to hit No. 1 since T. Swizzle did it in 2010, when ‘Speak Now’ debuted at No. 1. Swift was just 20 at the time.

Congrats, Sel.
