While it does not retain #1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart, Drake’s “More Life” stays comfortably atop the Billboard 200 consumption chart.
According to Billboard, “More Life” generated 225K US consumption units (album sales + track sales/10 + track streams/1500) during its second week of release. The tally more than doubles that of the #2 album.
Ed Sheeran’s “Divide,” again the #2 album, generated 98K consumption units this week.
Trey Songz’ “Tremaine The Album” debuts at #3 with 67K units (45K from pure sales), while “Beauty And The Beast” holds at #4 with 64K units.
Again benefiting from the ticket/album bundle, Metallica’s “Hardwired … To Self-Destruct” jumps fourteen places to #5 on the strength of 50K weekly units.
