AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift's latest album "Reputation" returns to No. 1 on Billboard 200, marking its fourth nonconsecutive week atop the chart. The set racked up 107,000 equivalent album units in the week ending December 28, according to Nielsen Music. The effort is the first album to sit at the top spot for four weeks since The Weeknd's "Starboy" claimed its fifth week at No. 1 om February.
Trailing behind "Reputation" is Ed Sheeran's "Divide (division sign)" that climbs to No. 2 with 92,000 units. The increase of the sales is highly influenced by his latest hit "Perfect". Meanwhile, Huncho Jack, the duo project of Travis Scott (II) and Quavo, debuts at No. 3 with "Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho". The set sold 90,000 units, including 17,000 in traditional album sales.
Eminem's "Revival" falls three spots to No. 4 in its second week with 84,000 units, while the soundtrack of musical drama film "The Greatest Showman" vaults from No. 63 to No. 5 with 77,000 units, including 61,000 in traditional album sales. The effort gets a big boost after the movie hit theaters across the nation on December 20.
Furthermore, the set, which features songs from Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron and Zendaya Coleman, is the highest-ranking soundtrack since Prince and the Revolution's "Purple Rain” re-entered the chart back in July 2017.
Back to this week's Billboard 200 chart, Pentatonix's "A Pentatonix Christmas" descends one spot to No. 6 with 55,000 units, while Sam Smith's "The Thrill of It All" stays at No. 7 with 52,000 units. On the other hand, G-Eazy's "The Beautiful & Damned" falls to No. 8 in its second week with 50,000 units.
Closing out the top 10 for this week are Kendrick Lamar's "DAMN." and Post Malone's "Stoney", which return to the chart's top 10. While "DAMN." climbs to No. 9 with 47,000 units, "Stoney" ascends three spots to No. 10 with 44,000 units.
