AceShowbiz - Post Malone's "Beerbongs & Bentleys" continues to soar on Billboard 200. The sophomore and latest studio album of the 22-year-old rapper tops the chart for the third week with 147,000 equivalent album units, including 18,000 in traditional album sales, in the week ending May 17, according to Nielsen Music.
The 18-track effort joins "Black Panther" soundtrack album as the only 2018 releases to spend three weeks at No. 1 on the chart. In addition, it scores the longest streak atop the chart since Taylor Swift's record-breaking "Reputation" ruled the chart for three consecutive weeks last year.
Eight months after its release, Pink's "Beautiful Trauma" jumps all the way from No. 83 to No. 2 with 139,000 units. The set is pushed back up the chart thanks to a deal that pairs concert tickets to her forthcoming tour with a free copy of "Beautiful Trauma". Meanwhile, Playboi Carti earns his largest debut as his surprise release "Die Lit" arrives at No, 3 with 61,000 units. The set also marks his first top ten album on the chart.

At No. 5, the soundtrack to "The Greatest Showman" climbs two spots with a little more than 53,000 units. J. Cole's "KOD" dips to No. 6 with 53,000, while Cardi B's "Invasion of Privacy" is down three positions to No. 7 with just under 53,000 units.
