Dua Lipa’s new record Future Nostalgia reached the top spot in several countries, and she just added another one to the list. The singer’s sophomore LP just became her first album to hit no. 1 in Australia.

Future Nostalgia hit the shelves on March 27th, a week earlier than planned after the album leaked online. That didn’t stop it from finding success on the charts, and it became Lipa’s first top-five entry on the Billboard 200 chart.

The singer’s sophomore album was an even bigger hit outside the US, especially in Europe. It reached no. 1 in Lipa’s home country of the UK, and numerous other countries including Ireland, Finland, and New Zealand.

Several hit songs from the album gave it a push in sales, including lead single “Don’t Start Now” which became Lipa’s first track to ever enter top three on Billboard Hot 100. She also found significant success with “Break My Heart”, which peaked at no. 21 in the US.
