Stevie Nicks Trouble in Shangri-La (2001)

Stevie’s wonder

It’s not much of a surprise when a current act such as Destiny’s Child debuts at No. 1 on the albums chart. What might not have been as expected is the second-highest debut this issue, a posting at No. 5 for Trouble in Shangri-La (Reprise), the latest album from Stevie Nicks. It’s the highest-debuting solo album ever for the Fleetwood Mac singer and, in its first chart week, is already tied with 1983’s The Wild Heart as the second-highest charted album of Nicks’ solo career.

Nicks spent one week at No. 1 in 1981 with her first-charted solo LP, Bella Donna. Her latest release is her first album of new material to appear on the Billboard 200 since Street Angel peaked at No. 45 in 1994. A boxed set, The Enchanted Works of Stevie Nicks, reached No. 85 in May 1998.

And Chart Beat reader Pat Kelly adds his 2 cents’ worth again, pointing out that Nicks is not only No. 5 but is also represented on the No. 1 album Survivor, as Destiny’s Child has sampled “Edge of Seventeen” on the track “Bootylicious.”

Stevie Says...
If I'm not vulnerable, I won't ever wrote any more songs about vulnerability, and then what am I doing? I need to help people. I need make people believe that it's all right to be vulnerable and to be a little naive, and to be still sweet and kind and good.
