Eternal Atake is the first album to spend its first two weeks at No. 1 since Harry Styles’ Fine Line held at No. 1 for its first two frames on the charts dated Dec. 28, 2019 and Jan. 4, 2020.
Eternal Atake would have most likely held at No. 1 for a second week without the help of its deluxe reissue. Even if the album had declined by 70% in its second week, it still would have ranked ahead of the chart’s No. 2 album, Lil Baby’s former No. 1 My Turn (77,000 units). The latter set climbs two rungs, despite a 27% decline in units for the week.Bad Bunny’s YHLQMDLG is a non-mover at No. 3 with 69,000 equivalent album units earned (down 38%).
Niall Horan’s sophomore effort Heartbreak Weather debuts at No. 4, securing the pop singer-songwriter his second solo top five-charting album. It arrives with 59,000 equivalent album units earned, with 42,000 of that sum in album sales (making it the top-selling album of the week). The set got an assist from a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer with his upcoming tour, as well as an assortment of merchandise/album bundles sold via his webstore.
Heartbreak Weather also starts at No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart, marking Horan’s second leader on the list, following his debut album, Flicker.
Flicker bowed at No. 1 on the Nov. 11, 2017-dated Billboard 200 chart with 152,000 units. Of that sum, 128,000 were in album sales (again, aided by a ticket/album sale redemption offer).
Jhené Aiko’s Chilombo falls from No. 2 to No. 5 in its second week (56,000 units; down 63%) and Roddy Ricch’s former leader Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial is steady at No. 6 (49,000 units; down 14%).
Don Toliver’s debut studio album Heaven or Hell arrives at No. 7 with 44,000 equivalent album units earned (with 3,000 of that sum in album sales, aided by merchandise/album bundle offerings). It’s the first charting album for the rapper and singer, who released the Donny Womack mixtape in 2018. Heaven or Hell, released through Cactus Jack/Atlantic Records, also marks the fourth top 10 album for Cactus Jack. It follows the self-titled Jackboys project (No. 1 earlier in 2020), label chief Travis Scott’s Astroworld (No. 1, 2018) and Huncho Jack’s Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho (No. 3, 2018).
Post Malone’s former No. 1 Hollywood’s Bleeding slips from No. 7 to No. 8 (42,000 equivalent album units; down 19%) while Justin Bieber’s fellow former leader Changes is a non-mover at No. 9 (36,000 units; down 24%).
Closing out the new top 10 is the soundtrack to Frozen II, which climbs 18-10 with 31,000 equivalent album units earned (up 12%). The former No. 1 album rebounds thanks to the early release of its parent film to digital retail and rental services, as well as the Disney+ streaming platform (on March 14). In a statement, Disney announced the film’s accelerated digital release -- three months earlier than scheduled -- “for families during these challenging times.” The film’s digital arrival was likely warmly embraced by families and kids in self-quarantine owed to the coronavirus pandemic.
