Machine Gun Kelly scores his first-ever No. 1 album as Tickets to My Downfall opens on top of this week’s Billboard 200.

The rapper’s pop-punk effort earned a total of 126,000 equivalent album units — MGK’s biggest sales week yet —including 63,000 in album sales, 60,000 in streaming equivalent album units and 3,000 in track equivalent album units. Tickets to My Downfall marks his fifth 10- entry following Hotel Diablo in 2019, Bloom in 2017, General Admission in 2015 and Lace Up in 2012, and is also the first rock effort to top the Billboard 200 chart since Tool’s Fear Inoculum in September 2019.

88rising staple Joji logged his biggest sales week as well as his sophomore studio album Nectar debuts at No. 3, earning a total of 92,000 equivalent album units with 50,000 in streaming equivalent album units, 41,000 in album sales and 1,000 in track equivalent album units. Its November 2018 predecessor BALLADS 1 opened with 57,000 units and peaked at No. 3.

Other new appearances on this week’s chart include K-pop supergroup SuperM’s Super One: The 1st Album at No. 2, Deftones’ Ohms at No. 5, Carrie Underwood’s holiday album My Gift at No. 8 and Tory Lanez‘s controversial DAYSTAR release at No. 10.

Elsewhere on the top 10 are Pop Smoke, Juice WRLD and Taylor Swift and Nos. 4, 6 and 7 consecutively, followed by YoungBoy Never Broke Again‘s Top at No. 9.

In related news, 21 Savage and Metro Boomin are projected to debut at No. 1 with Savage Mode II.
