Jeezy scores his third #1 album with "Trap or Die 3."
Each of this week's top four albums are debuts, including Jeezy at #1 and Meek Mill at #3. Drake and the Suicide Squad soundtrack also make it into the top 10, while A$AP Mob just misses the mark by coming in at #13. Travis Scott and Rihanna slip a few spots with their respective efforts, while Rae Sremmurd and 21 Savage/Metro Boomin continue to climb the charts with theirs. D.R.A.M. slips from #19 to #32 with his full-length debut, and Chance The Rapper also slipped out of the top 30 by coming in at #35 this time around.
1) Jeezy — Trap or Die 3: Jeezy scores his third #1 album with Trap or Die 3, a full decade after his first #1 album came with The Inspiration. Each of Jeezy's seven studio records have all charted in the top 5, making him one of the great chart-toppers of this generation. For its opening week, his newest LP logs 89,487 TAEU (total album equivalent units) and 73,189 pure sales.
2) Meek Mill — Dreamchasers 4: Despite constantly making headlines regarding his Drake beef, Meek Mill is actually selling pretty well with Dreamchasers 4. The newest release from the Philadelphia MC comes out of the gate strong, with 87,411 TAEU and 44,603 sales in its debut week, enough to land it at #3.
3) Drake – VIEWS: Getting ousted from the top 5 for the first time is Drake with VIEWS. The record spent virtually the whole summer in the top spot, and is just now starting to show the first signs of slowing in November. Nevertheless, the record still comes in at #7 and clocks 35,971 TAEU and 5,750 sales in its 27th week on the charts.
4) Various Artists – Suicide Squad: The Album: The Suicide Squad soundtrack continues to go strong, coming in this week at #8 with contributions from Rick Ross, Skrillex, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and more, just one spot behind where it landed last week. This time around, the compilation boasts 27,574 TAEU and 8,742 sales.
5) A$AP Mob — Cozy Tapes Vol. 1: The latest release from A$AP Mob is heavy on content from Rocky and light on Ferg, but it's getting pretty high acclaim either way. Cozy Tapes Vol. 1 has features from Skepta, Wiz Khalifa, Lil Uzi Vert, and more, helping it debut at #13 with 21,179 TAEU and 7,419 sales under its belt.
6) Travis Scott – Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight: The newest effort from Houston's Travis Scott comes in at #18 this week, following last week's stint at #16. This week the record adds 18,723 TAEU and 2,137 sales to its success.
7) Rae Sremmurd — SremmLife 2: At the #21 spot are the Rae Sremmurd boys, with their second studio album SremmLife 2. The album just got a recent boost with the success of "Black Beatles," a song that has become the soundtrack for the viral mannequin challenges sweeping social media into a frenzy. Following a boost from last week's appearance at #28, the album moves 17,327 TAEU and 1,816 sales.
8) Rihanna – ANTI: Rihanna's eighth studio LP ANTI continues to do pretty well, despite dropping out of the top 10 in recent weeks. She's bumped back four spots this time around, coming in at #22, but still logs 17,200 TAEU and 2,771 sales.
9) Kanye West – The Life of Pablo: Kanye sold one copy this week. Aye! That's up from recent weeks, where he hasn't reported even one sale. Still, with streaming, the record gets 16,839 TAEU, enough to land it at #24.
10) 21 Savage and Metro Boomin — Savage Mode: Holding down the #30 spot is 21 Savage and Metro Boomin. The new ATLien superstar linked up with the established hit-making producer, and the project is still climbing up the charts 16 weeks later. This week it's in its peak position, claiming 14,130 TAEU and 737 sales.
The top 5 in the Hot 100 seems to be at a gridlock: Chainsmokers at #1, Weeknd at #2, Twenty One Pilots at #3, DJ Snake and Justin Bieber at #4, and D.R.A.M. at #5. It's been this way for a couple weeks now. Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj swap spots with Bruno Mars as their collaborative hit "Side to Side" takes over the #6 spot. "Black Beatles," the mannequin challenge anthem from Rae Sremmurd, enters at #9, and Drake comes in at #10 with "Fake Love," rounding out a pretty hip hop-heavy top 10 this week.
Elsewhere, Young M.A's "OOOUUU" continues to climb, peaking this week at #19, while Drake and 21 Savage's "Sneakin'" does the same, coming in at #28. 21 Savage also has a few other hits bubbling on the charts, including his collab with Meek Mill. Meek has 7 songs total on the Hot 100 after the release of Dreamchasers 4.
