As projected last week, Alicia Keys' fifth album, Girl on Fire, debuted at number one on Billboard, selling 161,000 copies in its first week. This is far less than her previous release, The Element Of Freedom, which sold 417,000 the first week it dropped, but nevertheless, it is a fantastic accomplishment. Congrats, Alicia!
