The LP knocked Ariana Grande’s thank u, next down to number two and marks the first rock record to snag the top spot in three months, following Mumford & Son’s Delta last December. The Irish singer-songwriter’s label Columbia Records also celebrated the momentous occasion, as it is the label’s first number one in nearly a year with the last being Jack White’s Boarding House Reach back in April 2018.

Also, 2 Chainz’s Rap or Go to the League, Lil Skies’ Shelby and Solange’s When I Get Home all debuted in the top 10, taking the fourth, fifth, and seventh spots respectively.
