Post Malone Holds No. 1 On Billboard 200, Rae Sremmurd Debuts At No. 6
Post Malone has topped the Billboard 200 for a second consecutive week, Billboard reports. His sophomore album Beerbongs & Bentleys moves 193,000 equivalent album units this week, down 58% from its launch. The album is followed by J. Cole's KOD, which rises from No. 3 to No. 2 in its third week on the charts, moving 68,000 units.
Rae Sremmurd's triple album SR3MM has debuted at No. 6 with 57,000 equivalent album units. The album, made up three 9-track mini projects (Rae Sremmurd's SR3MM, Swae Lee's Swaecation, and Slim Jxmmi's JXMTRO), is the group's third top ten debut. 2016's Sremmlife 2 moved 27,000 units in its first week, while 2015's SremmLife moved 49,000.
Elsewhere, Cardi B's Invasion Of Privacy holds its place at No. 4 with 62,000 units.
With the release Beerbongs & Bentleys, Post Malone set the record for most simultaneous songs on the Billboard Hot 100. A week prior to that, J. Cole tied the Beatles record. Post's "Psycho" single rose from No. 5 to No. 2 last week. It has been predicted that Childish Gambino's "This Is America" will debut at No. 1 on the chart next week. If that's the case, it will end Drake's 15-week run at the No. 1 spot, which began with "God's Plan," before it was replaced by "Nice For What."
