AceShowbiz - Travis Scott (II) is starting the new year by leading the Billboard 200. However, he's not alone this time around because "Jackboys", a self-titled effort by a new supergroup he founded, debuts at No. 1 on a quite week at Billboard 200 with 154,000 units sold in the week ending January 2, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 79,000 were in traditional album sales.
This marks Travis' third time reaching the throne, though this is his first instance making it to the top not as a soloist. He first earned his No. 1 album back in 2016 with his sophomore album "Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight", followed by his record-breaking "Astroworld". As for the other Jackboys members Sheck Wes, Don Toliver and Chase B, this is their first time making it to the top ten of the chart.
"Jackboys" is the only new release within the top 10 of this week's Billboard 200, with the other spots mostly belonging to former No. 1 albums. Roddy Ricch's "Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial" rises to No. 2 with 74,000 units, while Post Malone's "Hollywood's Bleeding" climbs to No. 3 with 64,000 units. Last week's chart-topper, Harry Styles' "Fine Line", has to give up its spot and move to No. 4 with 54,000 units.
Following it up is "Frozen II" soundtrack album that takes over the No. 5 position with 46,000 units, as Billie Eilish's "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?" descends to No. 6 with 45,000 units. On the other hand, Young Thug's "So Much Fun" jumps to No. 7 with 38,000 units.
Now that the holiday season is over, some albums that have been kicked out of the top ten are making their return. DaBaby's "Kirk" sits at No. 8 with 38,000 units, as Taylor Swift's "Lover" goes to No. 9 with 30,000 units. Rounding out the top ten for this week's chart is Summer Walker's "Over It" with 28,000 units.
