Hayley Williams is out here making Billboard history.

The Paramore frontwoman is the first female artist to earn a number-one album on the Top Rock Albums chart both as a solo act and as part of a group. She just did the former with her debut solo album, Petals for Armor, and she achieved the latter three times with Paramore.

The 15-track Petals for Armor, which is made up of three, five-track EPs, was released on May 8. It includes the lead single, “Simmer.”

Williams had planned to launch her first U.S. solo tour in support of the record next week, but the run’s been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
