Melanie Martinez’s “Portals” Debuts at No. 1 on Top Rock & Alternative Albums & Top Alternative Albums Charts

Melanie Martinez is back at the top of the album charts…

The 27-year-old Puerto Rican & Dominican American singer, a former The Voice contestant, has snagged the top debuts on Billboard’s rock and alternative album charts dated April 15.

Melanie MartinezMartinez’s Portals opens at No. 1 on both the Top Rock & Alternative Albums and Top Alternative Albums due to 142,000 equivalent album units earned, according to Luminate.

Of that sum, 99,000 units are via album sales, while 42,000 come from streaming units, with the remaining 1,000 from track equivalent albums.

The sales and streaming counts are the best for any album on Top Rock & Alternative Albums in 2023.

Martinez notches her first No. 1 on the chart since it shifted to a model allowing for alternative-leaning albums not necessarily within the rock genre.

On Top Alternative Albums, Portals becomes her third ruler, following K-12 in 2019 and Cry Baby in 2015.

On the all-genre Billboard 200, Portals starts at No. 2, Martinez’s best rank, surpassing the No. 3 debut and peak of K-12. She also earns her first leader on Top Album Sales.

The album spurs multiple appearances on the multi-metric Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart, paced by Martinez’s “Void,” which vaults 40-5 in its second week on the tally. In the March 31-April 6 tracking week, “Void” earned 8.7 million official U.S. streams and 100,000 radio audience impressions and sold 1,000 downloads.

The former count gets Martinez onto the all-format Streaming Songs list for the first time, at No. 42.

In all, 13 Martinez songs reach Hot Rock & Alternative Songs, with the top debut of the group being “The Contortionist” at No. 10 (5.4 million streams).
