AceShowbiz - %cFetty Wap% has his self-titled debut album landed at No. 1 on Billboard 200. Nielsen music reports that the record, released on September 25 through RGF/300 Entertainment, opens with 129,000 equivalent album units collected in the week ending on October 1.
The figure includes 75,000 in pure album sales. The rest is made up of track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA), thanks in large part to some hits off the album like "Trap Queen", "679" and "My Way" which peaked at No. 2, No. 6 and No. 7 respectively on Billboard Hot 100.

The %cEagles%' %cDon Henley% follows at No. 3 with "Cass Country" which starts with 89,000 units and becomes his highest-charting solo album ever on Billboard 200. His previous solo effort, "Inside Job", debuted and peaked at No. 7 upon its arrival in May 2000.
At No. 4, country superstar %cGeorge Strait% collects his 20th top 10 record on the chart as his "Cold Beer Conversation" arrives with 86,000 units. Rounding out the top 5 is %cThe Weeknd%'s former first placer "Beauty Behind the Madness" that falls from No. 3 to No. 5 with 81,000.
