Juice WRLD's 'Death Race for Love' Rules for Second Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200
Juice WRLD’s Death Race for Love spends a second straight week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, as the set earned 74,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 21, according to Nielsen Music. That’s down 55 percent compared to its chart-topping opening frame of 165,000 units.
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 March 30-dated chart (where Death Race holds at No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard's websites on March 26.
Death Race leads a quiet top 10, as there are no debuts in the region, and most of the top 10 is populated by former No. 1 albums. (There are just two titles in the current top 10 that haven’t visited the top slot.)
A trio of previous No. 1s follow Death Race, starting with Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next, which holds at No. 2 with 66,000 equivalent album units (down 9 percent). Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack is steady at No. 3 with 40,000 units (down 16 percent) and A Boogie Wit da Hoodie’s Hoodie SZN climbs 6-4 with a little more than 33,000 units (down 2 percent).
Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack, which peaked at No. 2, is a non-mover at No. 5 with 33,000 units (down 9 percent).
Four more previous leaders are next in the top 10, with Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys stepping 7-6 with 31,000 equivalent album units (down less than 1 percent). Drake’s Scorpion rises 9-7 with 30,000 units (down 1 percent), Travis Scott’s Astroworld ascends 10-8 with 28,000 units (down 2 percent) and Meek Mill’s Championships moves 11-9 with nearly 28,000 units (down 1 percent).
Closing out the top 10 is Gunna’s No. 3-peaking Drip or Drown 2, falling 8-10 with 27,000 units (down 15 percent).
