Travis Scott’s Astroworld Tops Billboard 200 For The 2nd Consecutive Week
Billboard has officially announced Astroworld as the chart-topper for
Travis Scott ‘s latest record has reigned over the Billboard 200 charts since its debut and is still growing strong into its second week on the charts.
His numbers have been publicized as follows:
“The set earned 205,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Aug. 16 (down 62 percent), according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, a little over 78,000 were from traditional album sales (down 71 percent)…the album tallied 125,000 SEA units, which translates to 167.5 million on-demand audio streams for the album’s songs during the tracking week. “
His effort remains in the top spot despite the arrival of Nicki Minaj’s Queen. Her fourth studio album debuts in second place with 15k units which includes 78K from traditional album sales.
This represents the artist’s 4th time releasing a project into a top 2 debut,
a record for a female emcee. Her opening numbers are the second largest recorded for a female artist this year, following Cardi B ‘s Invasion Of Privacy.
