Summer Walker makes a sizzling entrance on the Billboard 200 albums chart with her first studio album, Over It. The set was released on Oct. 4 via LVRN/Interscope Records and launches at No. 2 with 134,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 10, according to Nielsen Music. Over It logs the biggest week, in terms of units earned, for an R&B album by a female artist in over three years. The last R&B album by a woman to notch a larger week was Beyoncé’s Lemonade, which tallied 202,000 units in its third week on the list (May 28, 2016; at No. 2) after previously bowing at No. 1.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Oct. 19-dated chart (where Over It debuts at No. 2) will be posted in full on Billboard's websites on Oct. 15.
