Of that number, the 17-track project acquired 82,500 streaming equivalent album units (115.85 million on-demand streams), 16,000 in album sales and just a little over 2,000 in track equivalent album units.

Their fifth chart-topper earned 177,00 in album sales, 35,000 in track equivalent album units and 30,000 in streaming equivalent album units. They are now the first group to hold two No. 1 albums in 2020 and the second overall act after NBA YoungBoy‘s 38 Baby 2 and Top.

Elsewhere on the chart, Ariana Grande moves up to No. 3 followed by Pop Smoke, Future and Lil Uzi Vert and Taylor Swift at Nos. 4, 5 and 6 respectively. Closing out this week’s top 10 are Luke Combs at no. 7, Chris Stapleton at No. 8, Juice WRLD at No. 9 and Carrie Underwood at No. 10.
