For the first time in more than 17 years, Celine Dion has a No. 1 album.

Courage, released by Columbia Records Nov. 15, moved 113 thousand units in the past week, putting it at the top of the Billboard 200 album chart. It’s the singer’s fifth No. 1 album of her career, and her first English language studio album since Loved Me Back To Life debuted in 2013.

Her last No. 1 album was in 2002, with A New Day Has Come. According to Billboard, that is the longest period between No. 1s ever for a woman as a solo artist.
