Beyoncé continues to demonstrate why she’s one of the biggest artists in the world.

Beyoncé’s seventh studio album Renaissance has reached No. 1 on the Billboard 2o0 chart, which makes her the first female artist to ever have seven albums debut at the top of the chart.

The album also topped charts in the UK, Ireland, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Australia, Canada, Denmark, New Zealand, South Africa, and Brazil. Renaissance is now the most-streamed album on Spotify in a single day by a female artist in 2022.

Beyoncé is also the first female to have at least 20 top 10 songs as a solo artist and at least 10 top 10 songs on the Billboard Hot 100.

In a post on her website,, the singer gave appreciation to her fans for the support of her album. “Thank you all so much for your love and support nothing made me happier than seeing a club full of people sing every single word to every song from top to bottom,” Beyoncé wrote.

“This was years of experimentation, this was years of hard work, blood, sweat and tears,” she continued. “I’m so grateful and it was worth it. I’m thankful that it was received and understood, thank you to my beautiful team for your heart and grind. Thank you to all the brilliant collaborators and musicians, composers, and everyone involved in creating this piece of art, and thank you to the absolute best fans on the planet. I’m grateful to be loved by you.”
