Ariana Grande's "My Everything" has debuted ranking number one on the Billboard 200 chart, Billboard reported.

"My 2nd album to debut at #1 @billboard in less than a year... no words!!! thank u so much love & appreciation," Grande tweeted.

The success of the album came amid Grande's inclusion in the list of Hollywood actresses whose nude photos were leaked after being reportedly hacked from iCloud, which the FBI is "aware" of and is "addressing," according to Fox News .

Currently, Grande's song "Break Free" featuring Zedd from the album "My Everything" is at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 list while her collaboration song with Iggy Azalea titled "Problem" went down to number 13 after staying on the top ten list for weeks.

Other collaboration songs included in the album are "Best Mistake" featuring Big Sean, "Be My Baby" featuring Cashmere Cat, "Break Your Heart Right Back" featuring Childish Gambino, "Love Me Harder" featuring The Weekend and "Hands On Me" featuring ASAP Ferg.

Available only on the album's deluxe version, Grande's collaboration song with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj titled "Bang Bang" is currently at number nine.

On Aug. 30, Saturday, "Problem," "Break Free" and "Bang Bang" were simultaneously on the top ten of the Hot 100 list making Grande the second lead female artist to have three simultaneous top ten hits after Adele.

"My Everything" was released on Aug. 25, less than a year after the release of Grande's debut album "Yours Truly" on Sept. 2, 2013, which also topped Billboard 200, making Grande the first female artist to have her first two albums debut at number one since 2010.

The same record was achieved by Susan Boyle with her debut album "I Dream A Dream" released in 2009 and second album "The Gift" released in 2010, which both debuted at number one.

Meanwhile, Boyle accepted the nominations of Donny Osmond and heart radio host Cat Harvey and completed the Ice Bucket Challenge while singing "I Dreamed A Dream" from Les Miserables while waving an American flag.

Instead of ALS Association, Boyle chose to donate to Macmillan Cancer Support, Scotsman has learned.
