Beyonce Hits Career Milestone on Billboard 200 Thanks to Two of Her Albums

Her 'Homecoming: The Live Album' rises to No. 4 following its first full chart tracking week of activity, while 'Lemonade' re-enters the top ten thanks to its wide streaming debut.

AceShowbiz - Following the release of Netflix documentary "Homecoming: A Film by Beyonce", Beyonce Knowles has some of her albums on the Billboard 200 chart. Two of them, "Homecoming: The Live Album" and "Lemonade", each earn a spot on the top ten of this week's chart.

The live album, which features the songs that the singing diva performed during her headlining set at the 2018 Coachella, rises to No. 4 following its first full chart tracking week of activity. Racking up 57,000 units, "Homecoming: The Live Album" gains in both SEA and TEA units, but declines in album sales. It only sold 8,000 units in traditional album sales.

Meanwhile, "Lemonade" re-enters the chart at No. 9 thanks to its wide streaming debut on April 23. The album was only previously available to stream through Tidal. "Lemonade" sold 30,000 units, including 25,000 in SEA units. That translates to 31.45 million on-demand streams. With both "Lemonade" and "Homecoming" in the top ten, this is the first time for Beyonce to claim two concurrent top 10 sets.

Elsewhere in the chart, Billie Eilish's "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?" returns to the top spot in its fourth week with 88,000 units. Trailing behind her debut album is Khalid's "Free Spirit" which climbs to No. 2 with 60,000 units. On the other hand, BTS' (Bangtan Boys) "Map of the Soul: Persona" slips from the No. 1 spot to No. 3 with 57,000 units.

Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" climbs to No. 4 with 43,000 units, while Lizzo makes her Billboard 200 chart debut at No. 6 with her first major label album "Cuz I Love You". Hitting the stores on April 19, the record racked up 41,000 equivalent album units, including 24,000 in traditional album sales.

Hip-hop albums take over the rest of the top ten, with Nipsey Hussle's "Victory Lap" falling down to No. 7 with 36,000 units. Juice WRLD's "Death Race for Love" holds its No. 8 spot with 31,000 units, while Post Malone's "Beerbongs & Bentleys" descends to No. 10 with 29,000 units.
