A bumpy rollout didn't stop the 'ANTI' star from the no. 1 slot.

Chaotic release or not, Rihanna is still a superstar and her fans have spoken. Her ANTI LP has landed atop the Billboard 200 chart after moving 166,000 units stateside (124,000 of which were album sales vs. streaming). It's her second consecutive album to earn the no. 1 position following 2012's Unapologetic.

Last week, she debuted at no. 27 on the chart amid a tumultuous rollout: her album leaked, then was being given away for free on Tidal and Samsung phones before a staggered release on Apple Music and Spotify.

Kevin Gates, Adele, Sia and Justin Bieber round out the top five on the chart.

Rihanna also teased a behind-the-scenes look at "Work" from the studio, which features the making of the track.
