The “Green Light” singer took to Twitter today (June 26) to thank her fans and talk about her musical journey, first writing, “you guys, today we have the number one album in america. from the bottom of my heart, thank you.”

She continued in five more tweets, writing, “royals was, to quote david chase, ‘a moonshot, a dreadnought’. there were no such guarantees with melodrama—that’s why this means so much … when i was a kid i thought big records had to be made a certain way—to be sterile & calculated in craft; that something had to be sacrificed … i have had the divine thrill of disproving that firsthand, twice over.”
