Future scores his 4th straight #1.
Future has reasserted his claim to the throne of chart king with FUTURE, his fourth album to debut at number one. Bruno Mars continues to be second best. He is joined by The Weeknd, Migos, Charlie Wilson, and Big Sean in the top 10. Fat Joe and Remy Ma's Plata O Plomo debuts at #43, which could go up in the coming weeks after Remy's made regular headlines through her Nicki Minaj diss. Rumor has it that Future will claim the #1 spot next week with HNDRXX.
1) Future — Future: Grabbing the #1 spot is Future, with the first of two records he released over the past two weeks. The self-titled album has no big-name features but plenty of big-name producers, like Zaytoven, Metro Boomin, DJ Khaled, Southside, Frank Dukes, and more. The record debuts with 140,352 TAEU (total album equivalent units) and 60,389 sales.
2) Bruno Mars — 24K Magic: Bruno Mars's 24K Magic maintains its strangehold on the #2 spot. The album clocks 59,270 TAEU and 30,025 sales in its 14th week on the charts.
3) The Weeknd — Starboy: The Weeknd's third studio album lands at #4 this week with 50,361 TAEU and 12,047 sales. As it clocks its 13th week on the charts, the album is up a single spot from it's stint at #5 last week.
4) Migos — Culture: The Migos swap spots with The Weeknd and land at #5. Culture moves 50,140 TAEU and 4,377 sales just a few weeks after its release.
5) Big Sean — I Decided.: At #6 is Big Sean with I Decided., his fourth studio album and second album to reach the #1 spot on the Billboard 200. This time around the record logs 48,842 TAEU and 13,071 sales.
6) Post Malone — Stoney: Post Malone's full-length debut lands at #13 this week. Stoney tallies 27,741 TAEU and 2,539 sales onto its success, which at one point brought it into the #6 spot. The album was released almost three months ago but refuses to budge from the upper region of the chart.
7) Drake – VIEWS: In the same #15 spot as last week is Drake with VIEWS, the album that ran at #1 for much of 2016. This week, Drake's most recent full-length clocks 23,937 TAEU and 4,021 sales.
8) Chance The Rapper — Coloring Book: Without even selling his record, Chance The Rapper still appears at #21 with Coloring Book, what is widely being called his third project. Since Billboard has been counting streams towards their "sales" figure, the album clocks 20,720 'total album equivalent units'.
9) Beyoncé — LEMONADE: Lemonade surged to #9 after Adele claimed Beyonce should have won the album of the year at the Grammys. That was last week; this week, the album slumps to #22. Beyoncé's latest logs 20,698 TAEU and 15,965 sales.
10) Rihanna — Anti: Rihanna's eighth studio album Anti clocks 20,424 TAEU and 3,556 sales this week and clocks in at the#23 spot. It's just a couple spots lower than the #21 position it was in last week, but having spent over a year now in the upper portion of the Billboard 200, I doubt RiRi is losing any sleep over it.
"Bad and Boujee" is back up at #2; Ed Sheeran's "Shape Of You" is still #1. Bruno Mars' "That's What I Like" lands at #4, the song's highest position to date. Rihanna's "Love on the Brain" has surged to to the #7 spot. The Chainsmokers occupy the #5 and #6 spaces with a couple of their own hits, an unreal feat for the EDM duo. Meanwhile, The Weeknd's "I Feel It Coming," a song that seemed poised for top five real estate, has been pushed back from #9 to #11. Elsewhere, Maroon 5 and Future's collaborative "Cold" jumped from #42 to #23, while Rae Sremmurd's "Swang" rises from $57 to #35. Keep an eye out on those hot tracks as they gun for top 20 territory. Eight Future songs are in the Hot 100 this week.
