Lana Del Rey‘s Chemtrails Over the Country Club debuts at number two on the Billboard 200.

The singer’s latest album moved a total of 75,000 equivalent album units, 58,000 of which were traditional album sales.

Chemtrails is Del Rey’s sixth top-10 album. She’s hit number one on the Billboard 200 twice, with 2014’s Ultraviolence and 2017’s Lust for Life.

Stopping Del Rey from grabbing another number-one debut is the one and only Justin Bieber, whose new album, Justice, debuted at the top spot. Lana did beat the Biebs overseas, though — Chemtrails debuted at number one on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart, and was also the fastest-selling vinyl record for any female artist across the pond since 2000.

Chemtrails Over the Country Club is the follow-up to 2019’s Norman F***ing Rockwell.
