    Quick Question

    Hi there everyone!

    I am currently in the process of translating an assignment from English to Arabic, and I am stuck on the following sentence:

    "...the album debuted at number one."

    Does it mean that the album sits on top of the chart for the first time or something else!?

    thanks in advance...

    Its first position in the charts was at number one - it didn't climb there over time.

    Welcome to the forums, May.

    Please note that a better title would have been The album debuted at number one.
