Both Eminem and Mac Miller are opening this week’s Billboard 200 in the top five, with the surprise album Music to Be Murdered By debuting at No. 1 and Circles at No. 3.

Music to Be Murdered By garnered a total of 279,000 units, comprised of 154,000 in streaming equivalent albums, 117,000 in album sales and 8,000 in track equivalent albums. The streaming equivalent album units equate to 217.6 million on-demand streams for the album’s tracks, marking the largest streaming week for an album since the second week of Post Malone‘s Hollywood’s Bleeding with 220.9 million on-demand streams.

Eminem officially becomes the sixth act with at least 10 No. 1 albums, joining The Beatles, JAY-Z, Bruce Springsteen, Barbra Streisand, and Elvis Presley. He also breaks a tie with Kanye West for the most Billboard 200 No. 1 debuts in a row, following West’s Jesus Is King in 2019.

Meanwhile, Miller’s posthumous Circles debuts at No. 3 with 164,000 total units. Of that sum, 102,000 come from streaming equivalent album units, 61,000 from album sales and a little over 1,000 from track equivalent album units. Circles is the late rapper’s sixth top 10 effort and is also his biggest week for an album in terms of units earned.

Elsewhere on the chart, Halsey‘s Manic opens at No. 2 with 239,000 equivalent album units and is her biggest week ever. Roddy Ricch‘s Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial falls from No. 2 to 4, followed by Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding at No. 5. The bottom half of the top ten is led by Selena Gomez’s Rare at No. 6, Moneybagg Yo‘s Time Served at No. 7 and DaBaby‘s KIRK at No. 8. Harry Styles’ Fine Line and Billie Eilish‘s WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? close this week’s Top 10 at Nos. 9 and 10 respectively.

Elsewhere in music, Tyler, the Creator, Lizzo and Nipsey Hussle took home the trophy at the 2020 GRAMMY Awards.
