Lea Michele's (Rachel) foray into recording original music is already a huge success! The Glee star's debut album Louder doesn't officially come out until tomorrow, but pre-sales have already skyrocketed it to number one on the iTunes album chart. Go, Lea!

Louder — buoyed by singles like "Cannonball" and "Battlefield" — is currently the top-selling album on iTunes, topping the other big album that comes out this week: Pharrell Williams's G I R L. On March 2, Lea posted a photo of the chart:

We're thrilled! We knew that we couldn't wait for Lea to release her album, and now it's clear that we aren't alone.

Lea's album has yet to have a smash hit from the album, as the first single, "Cannonball," peaked on Billboard's Hot 100 chart at number 75. And indeed, Pharrell's album still might top hers on Billboard once the week is over, given the popularity of his album's tune, "Happy." However, it's clear that people are still loving Lea's songs!

In case you want a sneak peek at every single one of the album's songs before it even comes out, Lea has posted two videos to her YouTube page that reveal snippets of each song, along with Lea talking about what the songs mean to her.


We're very excited for Lea and wish her continued success with the album!

Are you surprised that Lea's album hit number one? And are you planning to buy it?
