The album, which features her current hit “Diamonds,” as well as collaborations with other superstars like Eminem, Chris Brown, David Guetta and more, was released November 19. According to The Huffington Post, it may be the singer’s seventh album, but it’s the first of her seven albums to hit No.1 on the Billboard 200 album charts in the U.S., selling 238,000 copies in its first week.

Rihanna, who recently wrapped up her whirlwind 777 tour, which had her performing seven shows in seven countries in seven days to promote the album, couldn’t contain her excitement upon hearing the news that Unapologetic had hit no.1.

The feat made her feel very grateful.

“Wait!!!!! What the F--K?!!!! #UNAPOLOGETIC just debuted at #1 in AMERICA!!!!! My first number 1 album there!!! Thank you Navy, u deserve it,” she tweeted on Tuesday. “I'm legit crying like a pu--y right now!! #UNAPOLOGETIC.”

Rihanna also recently hit another career milestone. Her lead single off Unapologetic, “Diamonds” became Rihanna’s 12th no.1 single, tying Madonna’s record.
