Everything's turning up Gwen Stefani.

The 46-year-old singer officially scored her first No. 1 solo album with This Is What the Truth Feels Like, which sold 84,000 copies last week and debuted at the top of Billboard's Top 200 Album Chart.

"after all this time -all this life -now this? How?! Thank u for this amazing moment gx," Stefani tweeted upon hearing the news.

The GRAMMY winner recently opened up about how the album came to be, admitting she didn't want to make new music following her divorce from Gavin Rossdale -- she only wanted to "not die."

"I wasn't thinking. I was feeling and I was dying," Stefani told GQ. "And then I was just like, 'You can't go down like this! You have to turn this into music. You have to try, at least.' I was so embarrassed by just everything. I just didn't want to be that person that just went down after all of that."

"The fact that now I have a record and people are hearing it, it just blows my mind," she added.

It helps that she seems to have found plenty of inspiration in her new boyfriend, Blake Shelton. Her fellow Voice coach is responsible for at least five of those 84K album sales, as he revealed on Twitter. "I may have gone overboard..." he said.

The 39-year-old country singer has been very vocal with his praise for Stefani and her new album, tweeting when it hit No. 1 on iTunes, "I am freaking out!!! Congratulations @gwenstefani!!!!"

Shelton also revealed that his favorite song on This Is What the Truth Feels Like is "Rare," which most fans think the No Doubt frontwoman wrote about him.

"You're a sapphire / You're a rolling stone / You're a sparkle in a deep black hole," Stefani sings on the track. "You're like moonshine / When the curtains close / You're my answer / One that no one knows / And I can't believe it that you even exist."
