Lana Del Rey has landed her first US No. 1 with her new album, “Ultraviolence.”

Billboard reports the singer/songwriter sold 182,000 copies of the new release in its first week to score the top spot.

"Ultraviolence" follows Del Rey's major-label debut album, "Born to Die," which peaked at No. 2 with 77,000 sold in its first week.

"Born to Die" surpassed 1 million in sales earlier this year in February; its cumulative total stands at nearly 1.1 million.

Del Rey has a few festival appearances scheduled in Europe this summer, including Bravalla in Norrkoping, Sweden on June 26.
