Alternator Belt popped

OK so I ran into a little bit of a problem, I was driving tonight and I had no lights or power to my radio. I pulled over and popped the hood and the Alternator Belt was gone. (FYI I replaced it when I first bought it about a month ago) so I had to get a new battery and belt but I'm wondering why a month old belt popped? Could a pulley be out of alignment? Maybe a pulley seized up? I really don't know, maybe y'all can help, thanks.

You are on the right path....too loose, pulley misaligned, pulley seized, harmonic balancer rubber coming apart and allowing the pulleys to walk.

Thanks, I appreciate it. Hopefully I can figure it out before this happens again.
