Stefani started her solo career in early 2003.
When artists go solo after being apart of successful bands or groups their careers are usually predicted to crumble. Unlike a lot of destroyed careers, Gwen Stefani’s prospered.
Currently, Gwen Stefani earns her first No. 1 solo album. The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption.
“This Is What the Truth Feels Like” is Stefani’s third solo album. This album is the first album of Stefani’s to hit No.1 which is surprising to most since Stefani has been out of the spotlight for a while now. It’s been almost 10 years since she’s released a solo record, and her most recent album, 2006’s The Sweet Escape, topped at No. 3 on the Billboard chart.
This is a huge success for 46-year-old singer and songwriter. Gwen Stefani is breaking borders like other entertainers such as Madonna and Missy Elliot, proving that age doesn’t stop talent.
