Young Thug’s ‘Punk’ Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart
Young Thug

Young Thug achieves his third No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated Oct. 30) as his latest release, Punk, debuts in the top slot. The set earned 90,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending Oct. 21, according to MRC Data.

The 20-track Punk boasts an array of guest stars, including A$AP Rocky, J. Cole, Doja Cat, Drake, Future, Gunna, Juice WRLD, Post Malone, Mac Miller, Nate Ruess and Travis Scott.

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 Oct. 30, 2021-dated chart (where Punk debuts to No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard’s website on Oct. 26. For all chart news, follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.

Of Punk’s 90,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending Oct. 21, SEA units comprise 77,000 (equaling 102 million on-demand streams of the album’s songs), album sales comprise 12,000 and TEA units comprise 1,000. Punk marks Young Thug’s third visit to No. 1. He previously topped the list by way of the Young Thug-led Slime Language 2 album earlier in 2021 and So Much Fun in 2019.

Drake’s former No. 1 Certified Lover Boy falls to the No. 2 slot after four nonconsecutive weeks in the lead. It earned 83,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Oct. 21 (down 12%).

Mac Miller’s Faces mixtape debuts at No. 3 with 67,000 equivalent album units earned. Of that sum, album sales comprise 34,000, SEA units comprise 33,000 (equaling 43.03 million on-demand streams of the set’s songs) and TEA units comprise a negligible sum. Faces was initially released for free in 2014, but was not commercially issued or distributed to streaming services until Oct. 15, 2021.

Faces’ album sales was bolstered by its release on vinyl LP, which comprises 32,000 of its sales sum, while the remaining 2,000 were digital album sales. Faces is the seventh top 10 effort on the Billboard 200 for the late artist, who died in 2018.

Coldplay’s latest studio album, Music of the Spheres, starts at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, earning 57,000 equivalent album units. Of that sum, album sales comprise 37,000, SEA units comprise 15,000 (equaling 20.55 million on-demand streams of the set’s songs) and TEA units comprise 4,000. Music of the Spheres is the eighth top 10 effort for the band, and follows the 2019 album Everyday Life, which debuted and peaked at No. 7. The new album was led by the single “Higher Power,” which marked the group’s 14th top 10 on the Alternative Airplay chart. The album’s second single, “My Universe,” with BTS, debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, marking the second leader for Coldplay.

The Beatles’ former No. 1 Billboard 200 album Let It Be surges back onto the chart, re-entering at No. 5 following its deluxe special edition reissue on Oct. 15. The set earned 55,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Oct. 21 (up 3,899%). Of that sum, album sales comprise 48,000 (up 11,570%; making it the top-selling album of the week), SEA units comprise 6,000 (up 589%; equaling 8.34 million on-demand streams of the set’s tracks) and TEA units comprise 1,000 (up 1,180%).

Let It Be was first released in 1970 as the final studio effort from the band. It spent four weeks atop the chart (June 13-July 4, 1970-dated charts). For its special edition, the album was reintroduced in a variety of expanded formats and editions, including many with previously unreleased tracks. All versions of the album, old and new, are combined for tracking and charting purposes.

The Let It Be reissue precedes the arrival of director Peter Jackson’s upcoming documentary series The Beatles: Get Back. The three episodes will premiere, respectively, on Nov. 25, 26 and 27 exclusively on Disney+.

YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s former No. 1 Sincerely, Kentrell falls 3-6 with 44,000 equivalent album units earned (down 15%), Doja Cat’s Planet Her is a non-mover at No. 7 with 42,000 units (down 1%), Morgan Wallen’s chart-topping Dangerous: The Double Album is stationary at No. 8 with just under 42,000 units (down 1%) and Olivia Rodrigo’s former leader Sour falls 5-9 with 40,000 units (down 9%). Lil Nas X’s Montero rounds out the top 10, as it falls 6-10 with 36,000 units (down 16%).

Effective with the Oct. 30-dated Billboard charts, streams from Boomplay will be added to the data that informs the Billboard Hot 100, Billboard 200, Artist 100 and Billboard Global 200 charts, as well as other Billboard U.S. and global charts that include streaming data. The plays represent audio streams from Boomplay’s subscription tier as well as logged-in streams from its ad-supported tier, with streams from each tier weighted appropriately.
