The late Juice WRLD is opening this week’s Billboard 200 at No. 1 as Legends Never Die debuts with a total of 497,000 equivalent album units, officially dethroning The Weeeknd’s After Hours to hold the biggest week of 2020 so far.

Of the 497,000 units, 238,000 are credited to streaming equivalent album units (equating to 422.63 million on-demand streams for the album tracks), 209,000 are in album sales and 3,000 are in track equivalent album units. Legends Never Die also marks the biggest week for a hip-hop album since Travis Scott’s Astroworld in August 2018, and has toppled Lil Uzi Vert‘s Eternal Atake for the biggest streaming week of the year.

Elsewhere on this week’s top 10, Summer Walker opens at No. 8 with Life on Earth collecting just under 28,000 equivalent album units, including 24,000 in streaming equivalent album units, 3,000 in album sales and the rest in track equivalent album units.

Pop Smoke‘s Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon moves down a spot from last week’s No. 1, making this the first time in chart history to have posthumous releases go back-to-back at No. 1 and occupy the the top two slots.

The Broadway cast recording of Hamilton: An American Musical falls to No. 3, followed by Lil Baby and Post Malone at Nos. 4 and 5. Making up the bottom half of this week’s top 10 are DaBaby and Harry Styles at Nos. 6 and 7, with The Weeknd and Polo G closing things out at Nos. 9 and 10.
