Drake’s ‘Certified Lover Boy’ Spends Second Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart
Drake’s Certified Lover Boy spends a second week atop the Billboard 200 albums chart, as the set earned 236,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Sept. 16 (down 61%), according to MRC Data. The set opened at No. 1 a week ago with the year’s biggest week for an album, 613,000 units.
Also in the top 10: Kacey Musgraves’ Star-Crossed debuts at No. 3, Baby Keem’s The Melodic Blue bows at No. 5 and Metallica’s 1991 self-titled album (often referred to as The Black Album) jumps from No. 158 to No. 9 following its 30th anniversary reissue.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new Sept. 25, 2021-dated chart (where Certified Lover Boy holds at No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard‘s website on Sept. 21.
