American Singer Selena Gomez on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, took to Instagram to reveal the news that her latest album, Rare has topped the Billboards 200 list to become the most popular song in a week of its release. In the social media post, she also thanked all her fans and admirers for their constant support and love. She said, "It’s officially out! I was a bit embarrassed asking so often for you to stream or buy my album. It felt inauthentic. Thank YOU so much for making something so personal to me be a moment I’ll never forget. All I truly desire is for you all to enjoy the music and spread the love" (sic).
According to media reports, Rare album reached the number 1 slot in the Billboards 200 earlier today (January 22, 2020), with a record number of sales of about 112,000 within a week of its launch.

Reportedly, Rare album defeated Roddy Rich's Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, which went viral after its release, to become the number one.
Selena Gomez, who has been going through a tumultuous phase in her personal life, seems to have got a reason to celebrate. The success of Rare also means a lot for the singer, as the album is also her third studio solo album. Rare, which is earning rave reviews from music enthusiasts, reportedly has references to Selena's personal life.
