The pop star makes music history

Adam Lambert's album Trespassing debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart today and #1 on the Billboard Digital Albums Chart. It's Lambert's first #1 debut. And the first time an openly gay artist has reached this achievement.

We had inkling it was gonna be huge and included "Cuckoo" from the album in our 25 Songs of Summer.

As we wrote: "A bass-heavy electro banger from the American Idol’s sophomore effort -- with its 'gonna party till they take us away' chorus -- promises to be exactly what shirtless guys who pump their fists in the air will sound like this summer."

Yes, we congratulate Lambert, who was an Out100 honoree last year, on the historic accomplishment. And we think you'll be hearing a LOT of these songs at your favorite watering hole this year. Read more about Lambert here.

He was also recently voted by his many, many fans as being the Most Powerful LGBT Person in America in a recent poll conducted on Out.com. Read the results here.
