FOX has a huge hit on their hands with the new show Empire, and its soundtrack is proving to be equally as successful! Just released last week, the Empire soundtrack tops the Billboard 200 today with 130,000 units sold. It’s the first TV soundtrack to debut at number 1 since 2010, when three different Glee albums arrived atop the list.

The Empire soundtrack features contributions from the newbies in their cast such as everyone’s fav Jussie Smollett, as well as established artists among the likes of Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, Estelle, Rita Ora, Juicy J and Courtney Love (all of which have acted on the show.)

Coming in behind the Empire soundtrack is Madonna with her new album Rebel Heart at number 2, while both Drake and Big Sean remain in the top 10 this week as well. Check out the full list below!
