After months of fan anticipation, Mitski’s recent album Laurel Hell debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 and earned the #1 spot for album sales.

The indie darling has seen a steady rise in fame over the past few years following her beloved two most recent albums. Laurel Hell has brought the singer a new level of chart success, propelling her further into the mainstream than ever before.

Mitski landed on top 40 charts in Belgium, Canada, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, and more.
