Hoodie SZN’s chart fortunes are powered almost entirely by streaming activity. In the tracking week, of its total of 47,000 units, 45,000 were in SEA units, which equals 68.4 million on-demand audio streams for the album’s songs. The remaining overall units were from TEA units (about 1,000) and album sales (less than 1,000). The album once again trumps its own record for the smallest weekly album sales total for a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 since the chart flipped from an album sales-only list to a multi-metric consumption ranking in December of 2014.
21 Savage’s I Am > I Was vaults 8-2 with 40,000 units (up 14 percent), likely owed, in part, to increased interest in the album generated by news of his arrest on Feb. 3 by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The former chart-topper spent two weeks atop the list in January.
Future’s Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD slips 2-3 in its third week on the tally, earning just under 40,000 units (down 28 percent). Travis Scott’s Astroworld climbs 9-4 with 38,000 units (up 11 percent) and Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack dips 4-5 with nearly 38,000 units (down 7 percent).
Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys is steady at No. 6 with 36,000 units (up less than 1 percent), Meek Mill’s Championships is also a non-mover at No. 7 with 35,000 units (down 3 percent); Drake’s Scorpion returns to the top 10, rising 11-8 with 34,000 units (up 3 percent); and the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack steps 10-9 with 31,000 units (down 9 percent).
Closing out the top 10 is Kodak Black’s Dying to Live, jumping back into the top tier with a 13-10 move, earning 26,000 units (down 5 percent).
