Adam Lambert Makes Music History, is First Out Gay Artist to Hit #1 on Billboard Album Chart: VIDEO


Adam Lambert's album Trespassing debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart today and #1 on the Billboard Digital Albums Chart. It's Lambert's first #1 debut.

A_lambertAfterElton notes that this is historic: "Other gay performers such as Elton John and George Michael have hit #1, but only before they came out, and they haven't managed that honor since."

Lambert collaborated with Pharrell Williams, Claude Kelly, Benny Blanco, Bonnie McKee, Nile Rodgers and Sam Sparro on the album.

Yesterday, I posted a preview for Lambert's new video, "Never Close Our Eyes", a track written and produced by Bruno Mars and Dr. Luke.

Watch Lambert talk about the album, AFTER THE JUMP...
