Elusive songwriter Sia Furler has reached the top of the Billboard 200 under her own name for the first time with her new record 1000 Forms of Fear after spending the majority of her career writing hits for others. The record sold 52,000 copies during its first week on sale, according to data from Nielsen SoundScan, per Billboard. That’s the lowest sales figure for a No. 1 album in two years, but it was Sia’s best sales week ever.
