It’s a quiet week in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, as Moneybagg Yo’s A Gangsta’s Pain returns to No. 1 while no albums debut in the top 10 for the first time in two months.
A Gangsta’s Pain rises 2-1 in its third week, after earning 61,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending May 12 (down 12%), according to MRC Data. The album debuted atop the chart dated May 8 with 110,000 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 comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new May 22-dated chart (where A Gangsta’s Pain returns to No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard's website on May 18.
