James Blake jumps in at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated Feb. 2) with Assume Form. The set earned 22,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Jan. 24, according to Nielsen Music. With 9,000 from traditional album sales, Assume also sails in at the summit of Dance/Electronic Album Sales.
The total is the highest on Top Dance/Electronic Albums since Calvin Harris' Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 earned 23,000 units (Aug. 12, 2017) and the highest for a debut since Funk started with 68,000 (July 22, 2017).
Blake achieves his third No. 1, following The Colour in Anything (May 2016) and Overgrown (April 2013). Two more titles round out Blake's five top 10s: EP Enough Thunder (No. 9, October 2011) and James Blake (No. 4, February 2011).
