AceShowbiz - A Boogie Wit da Hoodie's latest album "Hoodie SZN" stays steady in its second week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 chart. The set sold an additional 56,000 equivalent album units in the week ending January 17, according to Nielsen Music. This marks the eighth straight week a rap album tops the chart, the longest streak since Drake's "Views" did so in 2016.
"Hoodie SZN" latest achievement is overwhelmingly driven by streaming activity as almost 55,000 of its total units come from SEA units. The album only racked up a little under 1,000 units in traditional album sales. While the site does not disclose the exact number, it is reported that the album breaks its record for the smallest weekly album sales total for a No. 1 since Billboard 200 transitioned from an album sales-only list to a multi-metric consumption ranking in 2014.
Back to this week's chart, the soundtrack album to "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" soundtrack reaches a new peak as it rises to the second spot with 52,000 units. The move is likely thanks to Post Malone and Swae Lee's "Sunflower", one of the songs off the album, topping Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
Meanwhile, 21 Savage's "I Am > I Was" switches spot with the soundtrack album, falling to No. 3 with 46,000 units. Malone's "Beerbongs & Bentleys" rises to No. 4 with 43,000 units, while Meek Mill's "Championships" rounds out the top five with 42,000 units.
At No. 6, "A Star Is Born" soundtrack ascends one spot with 40,000 units as Travis Scott (II)'s "Astroworld" follows closely behind at No. 7 with nearly 40,000 units. Drake's holds its No. 8 spot with 39,000 units, while "The Greatest Showman" soundtrack album returns to the top 10 at No. 9 with 36,000 units. Kodak Black's "Dying to Live" falls one spot to No. 10 with 35,000 units.
Next week, Future is reportedly set to end the lack of new debuts on the chart with his new album "The WIZRD".
