Lil Uzi Vert's 'Eternal Atake' album holds No. 1 spot on Billboard 200 Albums chart with deluxe edition
The album had a deluxe edition reissue recently which contributed highly to its second week achievement
American rapper singer-songwriter Lil Uzi Vert has secured his sophomore LP's second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Titled 'Eternal Atake', the latest album was released on March 6 and has earned 247,000 equivalent album units in the US in the week which ended on March 19, according to reports.
It is down only 14% in comparison to its debut where it earned 288,000 units the week prior.
The second-week achievement is owed to the album's surprise reissue with a deluxe edition on March 13, according to Billboard, when 14 songs were added to the original 18-song set. The chart takes into account all versions of the album combined for its tracking and charting purposes.
The album would still have likely held at No. 1 for a second week without the help of the deluxe edition since it still would have ranked ahead of the chart's No. 2 album, Lil Baby's former No. 1 'My Turn' at 77,000 units, even if 'Eternal Atake' declined by 70% in its second week.
'My Turn' climbed two rungs, despite a 27% decline in units for the week. Bad Bunny's 'YHLQMDLG' remains at No. 3, earning 69,000 album units while down at 38%.
According to Billboard, "The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the US based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA)".
The new chart for March 28, where 'Eternal Atake' holds at No. 1, will be revealed in full on March 24 on Billboard's website.
Lil Uzi Vert's album is the first to spend its first two weeks at No. 1 since 'Fine Line' by Harry Styles held at No. 1 for its two weeks on the charts dated December 28, 2019, and January 4, 2020.
