With a rather relaxed week on the charts, Travis Scott returns to the mountaintop as Astroworld regains the No. 1 position on the Billboard 200.
The album sold 71,000 equivalent album units to reach the peak. Of that 71,000, 31,000 copies were in pure album sales. What pushed Astroworld back up the charts was a Cyber Monday deal in which Scott bundled copies of the album with purchases of keychains, hats T-shirts, hoodies and more from both the Astroworld: Wish You Were Here tour and Astroworld Fest collections. Say what you want, but Travis is about his bread.
Following Travis was controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine whose Dummy Boy album landed at No. 2 on the charts after three days of chart activity. Released on Tuesday, November 27, the 13-track album sold 66,000 equivalent albums (10,000 of which were pure album sales).
The shaky release follows 6ix9ine’s arrest late last month on six counts of federal racketeering and weapons charges. He pled not guilty and will stand trial in September of 2019.
Behind those two are two Michael Bublé albums, Love and Christmas followed by the A Star Is Born soundtrack and the Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack.
