Roddy Ricch’s Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart for a third nonconsecutive week, while Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? vaults back into the top three after Eilish’s big night at the Grammy Awards.
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). The new Feb. 8-dated chart, where Please Excuse Me returns to No. 1, will be posted in full on Billboard's websites on Feb. 4.
Please Excuse Me moves back to the top of the tally after earning a little under 95,000 equivalent album units (down 8%) in the U.S. in the week ending Jan. 30, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The album has spent a total of three weeks at No. 1, all in separate one-week visits to the top. It bowed at No. 1 on the Dec. 21, 2019-dated chart, then fell away from the top for three weeks, returned to No. 1 on Jan. 18, stepped away for two weeks, and now climbs back to the summit. The last album to have three separate visits to No. 1 was Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, which was No. 1 for three weeks in 2019, and all in one-week visits to the top, like Please Excuse Me. When We All Fall Asleep was No. 1 on April 13 (its debut week), May 4 and June 8.
The vast majority of Please Excuse Me’s units in the latest tracking week was driven by streaming activity, with 92,000 SEA units contributing to its overall total of just under 95,000 units. The album’s remaining units were registered via a little more than 1,000 TEA units and about 1,000 in album sales.
Eminem’s Music to Be Murdered By falls to No. 2 after its big debut at No. 1 a week ago. The set earned 89,000 equivalent album units in its second week (down 68%).
Billie Eilish’s former No. 1 When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? bolts back into the top three with a 77% increase, as it climbs 10-3 with 62,000 equivalent album units earned. Eilish and her brother Finneas, who co-wrote and produced When We All Fall Asleep, were the big winners at the Grammy Awards on Jan. 26, as they took home five awards each. Eilish also made history as the first woman, and second artist ever, to win the top four categories: album of the year (for When We All Fall Asleep), record of the year, song of the year (both for the When We All Fall Asleep single “Bad Guy”) and best new artist.
Eilish’s previous effort, Dont Smile at Me, also collects a big increase, rising 33-22 with a 36% gain, earning 23,000 units. The album peaked at No. 14 at little over a year ago (Jan. 26, 2019-dated chart).
Halsey’s Manic falls 2-4 in its second week, earning 56,000 equivalent album units (down 77%), while Post Malone’s former No. 1 Hollywood’s Bleeding is steady at No. 5 with 54,000 units (up 3%).
Mac Miller’s Circles slips 3-6 with 45,000 equivalent album units earned (down 73%), while DaBaby’s previous leader Kirk rises 8-7 with 36,000 units (while down 2%). Harry Styles’ former chart-topper Fine Line moves up 9-8 with 33,000 units (though down 7%), Moneybagg Yo’s Time Served descends 7-9 with 31,000 units (down 17%) and Jackboys’ self-titled set returns to the top 10, jumping 14-10 with 30,000 units (while down 1%).
