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.
