With the album Trespassing, Adam Lambert confirms his superstar status and makes history as the first openly LGBT vocalist to have an album debut at the #1 position of the Billboard album charts. When a woman first debuted an album at the #1 position, it was Whitney Houston with her album, Whitney. The torch for equality in music has been passed.
Released May 15, Trespassing premiered at the top of both Billboard’s Top 200 chart and digital albums chart. With a mix of dance songs and ballads, including the equality anthem “Outlaws of Love,” the album has also received exceptionally strong notices from music critics.
Watch a teaser for the soon-to-be-released video for Lambert’s single “Never Close Our Eyes” below.
To Mr. Lambert, Congratulations!
