Arcade Fire Nabs Third No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 With 'Everything Now'


The album marks the rock band's third top-charting effort in a row, following 2010's 'The Suburb' and 2013's 'Reflektor'.
Arcade Fire scores their third No. 1 album on Billboard 200 as their latest album "Everything Now" debuts atop the chart. Making its way out via Columbia Records, the set racked up 100,000 equivalent album units, including 94,000 in traditional album sales, in the week ending August 3, according to Nielsen Music.

"Everything Now" is the second rock album to lead the chart this year, following Linkin Park's "One More Light". The album's great sales are fueled by Arcade Fire's concert ticket/album bundle sale promotion of their upcoming tour.

Kendrick Lamar's "DAMN" returns to the top 3 as it ascends from No. 5 to No. 2 with 47,000 units, while Meek Mill's "Wins and Losses" is a non-mover at No. 3 in its second week with 37,000 units. DJ Khaled's star-studded album "Grateful" climbs from No. 9 to No. 4 with 34,000 units.

Trailing behind "Grateful" is Jay-Z's latest effort "4:44", which rises to No. 5 in its fourth week with 33,000 units. Rapper 21 Savage's "Issa Album" bounces back to the top 10 as it bows at No. 6 with 31,000 units. Similarly, Imagine Dragons' "Evolve" returns to the top 10 as it lands at No. 7 with a little more than 30,000 units.

Ed Sheeran's "Divide (division sign)" blasts to No. 8 with 30,000 units, while the soundtrack of "Descendants 2" dips to No. 9 with a little more than 27,000. Closing out this week's top 10 is Lana Del Rey's "Lust for Life", which falls from No. 1 to No. 10 in its second week with 27,000 units.
