Amid a bitter legal battle over her record contract, singer Kesha was just thankful to all her fans after she scored top billing on the Billboard 200 chart with her comeback album ‘Rainbow’.
“I am so grateful and so lucky and … at a loss for words. thank you. thank you. thank you. there were many days that my music was simply a coping tool, for my emotions,” Kesha posted on Facebook.
Some 116,000 units of “Rainbow,” have been sold according to Nielsen SoundScan data, giving her the second-largest US sales week of 2017 by a female singer after Katy Perry’s “Witness.”
The Billboard 200 chart tallies units from album sales, song sales and streaming activity.
“Rainbow” knocked rapper Kendrick Lamar’s “Damn”, which was released in April, back to second place on the Billboard 200, with another 43,000 units sold for the week.
The album mingles Kesha’s signature pop sounds and powerful songs in which she channels the frustration, hurt and anger she has felt during a lengthy court battle.
“Rainbow” was released through the Sony Music group.
Welcome back Kesha!
