Post Malone's 'Beerbongs & Bentleys' sits atop Billboard 200 for second consecutive week
Leon Bridges' 'Good Thing,' Rae Sremmurd's 'Sr3mm' and Shinedown's 'Attention Attention' are among Billboard 200's new arrivals this exciting week.
Post Malone's 'Beerbongs & Bentleys' took on a slew of new releases and came out on top to remain Number One on the Billboard 200 for the second straight week, Billboard reports.
According to the report, just a week after setting a new streaming record, 'Beerbongs & Bentleys', Post Malone's sophomore studio album sold another 193,000 total copies to maintain its hold of the top spot. Out of that total, 160,000 copies came from streaming equivalent albums (SEAs), while only 24,000 came from traditional album sales.
While J. Cole's KOD held its ground at Number Two, Leon Bridges scored the week's best debut as the Texas-based soul singer's 'Good Thing' opened at Number Three with 66,000 total copies sold, including a surprising 59,000 from traditional sales.
This marks Bridges' best Billboard 200 debut. His first album 'Coming Home' peaked at Number Six in 2015.
Joining Malone and Bridges as new entries to the Top Ten were Shinedown's 'Attention Attention' at Number Five with 60,000 copies.
It’s the band's fourth consecutive studio album to feature in the Top 10, with their highest spot so far being Number Four for their 2012 effort, 'Amaryllis'.
Meanwhile, Rae Sremmurd's massive triple-LP 'Sr3mm', opened at Number Six with 57,000 total copies giving the Mississippi hip-hop duo their third consecutive album to land in the Top 10. Lake Street Dive's 'Free Yourself Up' wrapped things up at the bottom of the new arrivals at Number Eight.
Older arrivals on the list include Cardi B's 'Invasion of Privacy,' which finished the week at Number Four, 'The Greatest Showman soundtrack' (at Number Seven, marking an impressive 20 consecutive weeks in the Top 10), 'Black Panther: The Album' (Number Nine) and Migos' 'Culture II' (Number 10).
Next week will see Arctic Monkeys' divisive album 'Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino,' Charlie Puth's 'Voicenotes' and Bad Wolves' 'Disobey' take a shot at Post Malone's Number One spot.
