The R'n'B singer/actor's sixth album, and his third top 10 effort, debuts at No. 1 with 81,000 equivalent units including 78,000 pure album sales.

Tyrese Gibson finally has a No.1 album on Billboard 200 nearly 17 years after visiting Billboard's charts for the first time. Nielsen Music reports that the R&B singer/actor's newest record "Black Rose" debuts atop the list with around 81,000 equivalent units collected in the week ending on July 16.

Arriving via the star's own Voltron Recordz label, the album marks Gibson's sixth studio installment and his third to reach the top 10. With 78,000 in pure album sales, the project surpassed the first week sales of 2011's "Open Invitation" which opened with 76,000.

Next on Billboard 200, Meek Mill's "Dreams Worth More Than Money" which has spent two weeks at No.1 falls to No. 2 after moving 63,000 units. At No. 3, Taylor Swift's "1989" slips from last week's runner-up slot with another 62,000.

The "Kidz Bop 29" album is the next newcomer on Billboard 200, hitting No. 4 with 41,000 units. All "Kidz Bop" albums since its 18th installment have debuted in the top 10. The latest edition features kid-friendly versions of hits like Swift's "Style" and Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again".

At No. 5 and No. 6, Ed Sheeran's "X" and Sam Hunt's "Montevallo" dip one rung with 40,000 and 34,000 units, respectively. Meghan Trainor's "Title", meanwhile, rises from last week's No. 11 to this week's No. 7 with 26,000.

At No. 8, pop/rock ground R5 scores their highest-charting release yet as their sophomore LP "Sometime Last Night" debuts with 24,000 units. The band previously visited the chart with 2013's "Loud [EP]" (No. 69) and "Louder" (No. 24), and 2014's "Heart Made Up on You [EP]" (No. 36).

Closing out the top 10 are Maroon 5's "V" which rises one rung to No. 9 with just over 22,000 and Sam Smith's "In the Lonely Hour" that jumps from No. 14 to No. 10 with 22,000.
