Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Sour’ Jumps Back to No. 1 for Third Week Atop Billboard 200 Chart

Plus: G. Herbo scores highest charting album yet with top five debut of “25.”

Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour is back at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart for a third nonconsecutive week on top, as the set lifts 3-1 with 88,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending July 8 (down 6%), according to MRC Data. The album debuted at No. 1 on the chart dated June 5, led again on the July 3-dated tally and has yet to leave the top three in its seven weeks on the list.

Also in the top 10, G Herbo scores his highest charting album yet, as his new release 25 debuts at No. 5.

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 July 17, 2021-dated chart (where Sour returns to No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard's website on July 13.

Lil Baby and Lil Durk’s former No. 1 The Voice of the Heroes rises 4-3 with 47,000 units (down 9%), while Morgan Wallen’s former 10-week chart-topper Dangerous: The Double Album climbs 6-4 with just over 46,000 units (down 2%).

G Herbo’s fourth studio album25, is the lone debut in the Billboard 200 top 10 (and top 40, for that matter) as the set enters at No. 5 with 46,000 equivalent album units earned. Of that sum, SEA units comprise 44,000 (equaling 61.17 million on-demand streams of the set’s songs), album sales comprise a little over 1,000 units and TEA comprise less than 1,000. It’s the second top 10 and highest charting effort for the rapper, who previously visited the region with his last album, PTSD, which debuted and peaked at No. 7 on the March 14, 2020-dated chart.

The new 19-track album boasts guests turns from 21 Savage, Gunna, The Kid Laroi, Lil Tjay, Polo G and Rowdy Rebel.

Tyler, the Creator’s Call Me If You Get Lost falls 1-6 in its second week, earning 44,000 equivalent album units (down 74%). It’s the first No. 1-debuting album to fall out of the top five in its second week in 2021. The last to do so was Shawn MendesWonder, which descended 1-25 on the Dec. 26, 2020-dated list.

Polo G’s former No. 1 Hall of Fame dips 5-7 on the new Billboard 200 with 40,000 equivalent album units earned (down 18%). Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia rises 9-8 with just over 30,000 units (down 3%), MigosCulture III descends 7-9 with 30,000 units (down 19%) and Moneybagg Yo’s former No. 1 A Gangsta’s Pain rises 11-10 with 29,000 units (down 1%).
