AceShowbiz - Rapper NF finally notches his first No. 1 album with his third full-length album "Perception", which debuts atop the Billboard 200 chart. The set, which made its way out on October 6 via NF Real Music/Capitol/Caroline, racked up 55,000 equivalent album units, including 38,000 in traditional album sales, in the week ending October 12, according to Nielsen Music.
NF previously nabbed No. 12 on Billboard 200 with his second album entitled "Therapy Session". "Perception" becomes his first album that ever tops the chart, even though it marks the lowest-selling total for a No. 1-debuting album in 2017 and the fifth lowest since 2014.

Trailing behind is Post Malone's "Stoney", which hits a new peak in its 44th week. Following the success of "Rockstar" and "I Fall Apart", the set blasts to No. 4 with 45,000 units. Not only Malone, but Kane Brown also hits a new peak on the chart with his self-titled album. After reissuing the set on October 6, "Kane Brown" soars from No. 56 to No. 5 with 43,000 units, including 26,000 in traditional album sales.
Meanwhile, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie's "The Bigger Artist" drops to No. 6 in its second week with 39,000 units.
