This week’s US album race ends in a split-chart scenario.

Brett Eldredge’s new, self-titled album debuts at #1 on Top Album Sales, while Kendrick Lamar’s “DAMN.” tops the Billboard 200 consumption chart.

“Brett Eldredge” sold what Billboard reports as 36K in pure US sales. The figure ranks as the week’s best pure sales mark.

With TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) included, it generated 45K in total consumption. The figure is enough for #2 on the Billboard 200.

“DAMN.,” which generated 47K tracking week consumption units, returns to #1 for a fourth, non-consecutive week.

DJ Khaled’s “Grateful” takes #3 on the Billboard 200 with 31K units, while Meek Mill’s “Wins & Losses” grabs #4 with a similar amount.

“NOW 63,” which also shifted roughly 31K units, follows at #5.
