Camila Cabello trails behind the success of Meghan Trainor and Beyoncé after her debut album Camila landed on the No. 1 spot of the Billboard 200 Albums chart, a feat achieved in a span of a week.

Cabello, born Karla Camila Cabello Estrabao, grabbed the top of the charts for the week ending Jan. 18 after her self-titled album sold 119,000 copies, with 65,000 in traditional album sales in its first week of release. It has been three years since a debut album from a female artist topped the Billboard 200 after Meghan Trainor seized the spot with her album Title in January 2015.

Camila, released on Jan. 12, took over the two-week reign of The Greatest Showman soundtrack on the Billboard 200. The Cuban-American singer's debut album knocked down the film soundtrack to the No. 2 spot on the charts.

Track equivalent albums and streaming equivalent albums helped push Camila to the No. 1 spot. The popularity and sales of her song "Havana" further bolstered the former Fifth Harmony singer's rise to the top.

Speaking of "Havana," fans have more reason to celebrate as the track also hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Initial expectations were for the 20-year old to tie with Ed Sheeran's single "Perfect" on the top of the charts.

However, she dethroned the Irish singer after her single, featuring rapper Young Thug, climbed to the top of the charts on Monday following a seven-week perch in the second place. "Havana" also marks Young Thug's first No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

It has been more than a decade since a solo artist both have single and album on the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts. Beyoncé aka Queen Bey, was the last artist to ever achieve this feat on Jan. 13, 2003 with her single "Crazy In Love," featuring husband Jay-Z and her album Dangerously in Love.

The "Never Be the Same" singer could not contain her tears when she heard the good news. In her excitement, Cabello wrote Billboard Hot 100 instead of Billboard 200.

Naturally, fans of the singer were also ecstatic. One fan said Cabello deserved to be at the top because she worked so hard for it, while others shared the singer's happiness and tears of joy.

"I'm so happppyyy," one Twitter user wrote while another said that she is "crying in the club."

Other fans of Cabello shared several memes to express their joy at Camila's rise to the top of the Billboard 200 album charts.
