Making good on the early projection, DJ Khaled’s “Khaled Khaled” debuts at #1 on this week’s overall US album chart.

According to Hits Daily Double, “Khaled Khaled” achieved 95K US consumption units during the April 30-May 6 tracking period. Album sales contribute about 15K units to that sum. Track sales are responsible for 3.4K units, while track streams contribute 76.6K.

“Khaled Khaled” did not win the traditional album sales race (that honor looks to belong to either Grateful Dead’s “Dave’s Picks Vol. 38” or Gojira’s “Fortitude”), but it did generate the week’s biggest overall unit total. Moneybagg Yo’s “A Gangsta’s Pain,” the #2 consumption performer, moved 66K units this week.

Due Sunday, Billboard’s specific numbers may differ from the Hits data. The outcome will, however, be the same. “Khaled Khaled” will be the week’s #1 album, marking DJ Khaled’s third chart-topper.
