Lana Del Rey's 'Lust for Life' Reigns on Billboard 200, Linkin Park's Two Albums Return to Top 10


The dream pop singer scores second No. 1 album on the chart, while the rock band's two efforts return to the top ten following its vocalist's tragic death.
After being delayed for several days due to technical issues, the new Billboard 200 chart has been finally revealed. Taking the top spot on the new list is Lana Del Rey's latest album "Lust for Life". Making its way out via Polydor/Interscope Records, the set racked up 107,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 27, according to Nielsen Music.

Lana previously led the chart with her second full-length album "Ultraviolence", which landed atop the list back in 2014. "Lust for Life" marks her fifth top 10 effort, following "Born to Die", "Paradise [EP]" and "Honeymoon".

Following closely behind "Lust for Life" is Tyler, the Creator's "Scum Fuck Flower Boy", which debuts at No. 2 with 106,000 units, including 70,000 in traditional album sales. The effort is Tyler's highest-charting album to date. Meanwhile, Meek Mill nabs his fourth top 10 album as "Wins and Losses" bows at No. 3 in its first week with 102,000 units.

Two of rock band Linkin Park's albums return to the top 10 in the wake of the group's lead singer Chester Bennington's tragic death. Their latest album "One More Light" blasts from No. 17 to No. 4 with 50,000 units, while their debut effort "Hybrid Theory" ascends to No. 8 with 41,000 units.

Kendrick Lamar's "DAMN" falls out of the top 3 for the first time in 15 weeks, as it dips from No. 2 to No. 5 with 48,000 units. Meanwhile, the soundtrack of the Disney Channel TV movie "Descendants 2" debuts at No. 6 with 46,000 units.

Jay-Z's "4:44" slips from No. 1 to No. 7 after spending two weeks atop the chart. DJ Khaled's star-studded effort "Grateful" descends to No. 9 in its fifth week with a little more than 36,000 units. Closing out the top 10 is Romeo Santos' "Golden", which launches at No. 10 with 36,000 units. The set marks the first Latin album to reach the top 10 in more than three years since Santana's "Corazon" landed at No. 9 back in 2014.
