This week, Selena Gomez collects her first No. 1 title on the Billboard 200 with the arrival of ?Stars Dance.? The Hollywood Records release sold 97,000 copies in its first week ? a career-high frame for the singer, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It also marks Jay-Z?s departure from the No.1 spot.

Each of her four albums have steadily grown larger in their debut weeks, bowing with successively bigger sums and placing higher on the chart. Gomez has been red hot this year, scoring her biggest hit single yet with the lead track from ?Stars Dance,? ?Come & Get It.? The cut sailed to No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 (her first top 10) and No. 2 on the Pop Songs airplay chart.

Gomez bumps Jay Z?s ?Magna Carta . . . Holy Grail? down to No. 2 with 77,000 (down 40%). It had ruled the list for two weeks.

Gomez, who just turned 21 last week, is also the youngest solo female artist to hit No. 1 since her friend Taylor Swift in 2010.
