Beyoncé has made history again. Her latest album, “Cowboy Carter,” took the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart and reached No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart, making her the first-ever Black woman to achieve the feat since the list premiered in January 1964, Billboard reports. In her first week, she debuted with 407,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. This is her eighth album to top the Billboard 200. “Cowboy Carter” also earned the most units for a country album in its first week since Taylor Swift’s release of “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version),” which boasted 716,000 units.

5. Alex Iwobi surpasses Mikel Obi’s record

Fulham’s Alex Iwobi has cemented his place in the Premier League record books! In a recent match against Newcastle United, Iwobi played the entire 90 minutes, pushing his total Premier League playing time to a staggering 16,289 minutes. This achievement surpasses the previous record held by legendary midfielder John Mikel Obi, who clocked in at 16,218 minutes.

Iwobi’s journey to the top began with Arsenal in 2015. Since then, he’s consistently featured for his clubs, racking up valuable minutes on the pitch. This season alone, the 27-year-old has been a key player for Fulham, making 24 appearances and scoring five goals. Mikel Obi may no longer hold the record for most minutes, but his career boasts a cabinet full of trophies.
