Jack White unseats XXXTentacion's "?" on the charts.
Jack White has scored his third No. 1 album as his Boarding House Reach solo effort debuts at the top spot on the Billboard 200 album charts. Released by way of Third Man/Columbia Records, the outing earned 124,000 equivalent album units in the first week ending on March 29th with 121,000 of those units accounting for traditional sales, marking the largest sales week for a rock album in 2018 and the second-biggest sales week in 2018 for any album. Justin Timberlake’s Man Of The Woods currently holds the largest with 242,000 sold in the first week.
The debut was, in part, boosted by sales generated from a concert ticket and album sale redemption offer that accompanied White’s upcoming North American tour, slated to kick off on April 19 in Detroit.
White’s bow arrives as the only new entry in the top 10 with last week’s No. 1 album—XXXTentacion’s ?—following at No. 2, collecting 76,000 additional units, down 42 percent from his debut performance.
No. 3 is held down by Black Panther: The Album while The Greatest Showman moves up two units to No. 4. Migos’ Culture II remains at the No. 5 spot that it held last week while Logic’s Bobby Tarantino II continues to slide down, occupying the No. 6 slot while Post Malone’s Stoney moves up to No. 7.
Ed Sheeran’s ÷ (Divide) continues to hold a steady place in the top 10 at No. 8 while Imagine Dragon’s Evolve rises to No. 9, followed by Camila Cabello’s Camila as it moves up to No. 10 from No. 13.
