Jordan Smith becomes top-selling artist in ‘Voice’ history after debut album release

Posted: Updated:

"Voice" season nine winner Jordan Smith just keeps on breaking records with his vocal abilities.

Smith of Harlan, Ky., released his debut album, "Something Beautiful," on March 18. It's claimed the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Top 200, allowing Smith to get the highest ranking on the chart by a winner of a singing competition in around five years, according to a release from Republic Records.

With his album debut, Smith also broke the record for the highest album sales from a new artist in 2016 and holds the record for most first-week album sales for a winner of NBC's "The Voice," the release said.

Smith will return to "The Voice" on April 13 for a performance during its 10th season. While on the show, he also made "Voice" history when his covers of "Chandelier" by Sia, "Halo" by Beyoncé and more landed in the iTunes Top 10. Six of his covers hit the iTunes Top 3, and three captured the No. 1 spot, the release said.
