DJ Khaled's 'Grateful' Lands Atop Billboard 200 Chart


The star-studded album blasts to No. 1, while Imagine Dragons' 'Evolve' debuts at No.2 and Prince's reissued 'Purple Rain' returns at No. 4.
DJ Khaled scores his second No. 1 album on Billboard 200 chart with his latest effort "Grateful". Making its way out via We the Best/Epic Records on June 23, the set debuts atop the list with 149,000 equivalent album units, including 50,000 in traditional album sales, in the week ending June 29, according to Nielsen Music.

"Grateful" follows up the DJ's first No. 1 album "Major Key", which bowed atop the chart last year with 95,000 units. The new studio effort is greatly powered by two chart-topping hits, including "I'm the One" featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne, and "Wild Thoughts" featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller.

Imagine Dragons' "Evolve" debuts at No. 2 with 147,000 units, including 109,000 in traditional album sales. The set marks the third-largest sales week of the year for a rock album, following John Mayer's "The Search for Everything" and Gorillaz's "Humanz". At No. 3, Kendrick Lamar's "DAMN" is a non-mover with 59,000 units.

Prince's "Purple Rain" re-enters the chart at No. 4 with 52,000 units, following its deluxe remastered reissue on June 23. Meanwhile, 2 Chainz's "Pretty Girls Like Trap Music" falls from No. 2 to No. 5 in its second week with 43,000 units.

Alternative rock band 311 nabs their tenth top 10 album on the chart as "Mosaic" blasts to No. 6 with 39,000 units. The group's last top 10 album was "Strereolithic", which also debuted at No. 6 back in 2014. Ed Sheeran's "Divide (division sign)" stays steady at No. 7 with 36,000 units, while Drake's "More Life" slips to No. 8 with 34,000 units.

Other titles making up this week's top 10 are Bruno Mars' "24K Magic", which climbs one slot to No. 9 with 32,000 units, and the soundtrack of animated movie "Moana", which rises to No. 10 with 29,000 units.
