AceShowbiz - After spending two weeks at the runner-up slot, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie's new album "Hoodie SZN" finally reigns the Billboard 200 chart and marks the rapper's first No. 1 album. The set raked in an additional of 58,000 equivalent album units in its third week, including 823 in traditional album sales, in the week ending January 10, according to Nielsen Music.
"Hoodie SZN" has also become the first album to spend its first week atop the chart by climbing up the chart rather than debuting at No. 1 since "The Greatest Showman" soundtrack jumped from No. 5 to No. 1 in January 2018. In addition to that, the album marks the smallest weekly sum for a No. 1 album as it only sold 1,000 physical copies.
Trailing behind "Hoodie SZN" is last week's chart topper, 21 Savage's "I Am > I Was", which slips to No. 2 with 56,000 units. Following the movie's success, the soundtrack album to "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" climbs two spots to No. 3 with 49,000, hitting a new peak on the chart. Meanwhile, its lead single, Post Malone and Swae Lee's "Sunflower", tops the Billboard's Hot 100 this week.
Meek Mill's "Championships" follows the soundtrack album closely behind at No. 4 with 46,000 units, while Malone's album "Beerbongs & Bentleys" rounds out the top five with 43,000 units. At No. 6, Travis Scott (II)'s "Astroworld" ascends one spot with just over 41,000 units as "A Star Is Born" soundtrack album climbs three spots to No. 7 with 41,000 units. The latter album's sales gain is most likely due to the sale pricing on iTunes and its win at the 2019 Golden Globes Awards.
Drake's record-breaking album "Scorpion" moves down to No. 8 with nearly 41,000 units, followed by Kodak Black's "Dying to Live" which stays steady at No. 9 with 39,000 units. Rounding out the top ten is Queen's "Greatest Hits I II & III: The Platinum Collection" which vaults over than 100 spots to No. 10 with 38,000 units.
