Since the 2001 release of her monumental debut album, Songs in A Minor, Keys has built an unparalleled repertoire of hits and accomplishments, with more than 30 million albums sold worldwide. She released her second studio album, The Diary of Alicia Keys, in 2003, which was also a worldwide success and garnered her four GRAMMY Awards in 2005. Later that year, she released her first live album, Unplugged, and became the first female to have an "MTV Unplugged" album to debut at #1 - the highest since Nirvana in 1994. Her third studio album, As I Am, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, with the album's lead single, "No One," charting at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for five consecutive weeks. In late 2009, Keys released her fourth studio album, The Element of Freedom, which continued her successful
track record, selling 417,000 copies in its first week, hitting the platinum sales mark in one month and spawning the #1 single "Unthinkable." Her fifth studio album, Girl on Fire, released in November, marks her fourth album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Keys holds the distinction of being the first female R&B artist to have three consecutive #1 album debuts on the Billboard 200 album chart.
