Bryson Tiller's debut record, Trapsoul, may not have been able to climb all the way to the top of the Billboard 200, but his second did. At the end of May Tiller released his sophomore LP True to Self, and it has debuted atop the Billboard album chart. The album was released through TrapSoul/RCA Records and earned 107,000 equivalent album units in the week ending June 1st.
Tiller's debut record reached number eight on the charts back in 2015, but his second album wouldn't be denied the top slot, despite dropping a month ahead of its expected impact.
Once again, Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. is at number two on the charts, which shouldn't be a surprise to many. Meanwhile, last week's number one, Linkin Park's One More Light, fell out of the top 10.
The biggest surprise on this week's list was Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles, which re-entered the chart at number three. It's the highest ranking for the former number one album since December of 1967.
Sgt. Pepper's re-entered the chart because of its 50th anniversary reissue that was released May 26th. The reissue comes in a variety of configurations, including some with a bevy of bonus tracks. Back in 1967, the album spent a total of 15 weeks atop the chart - the most weeks at number one for any of The Beatles' 19 chart-topping albums.
The rest of the top 10 saw Drake's More Life stay at number four. Lil Yachty's debut studio album Teenage Emotions entered at number five. Ed Sheeran stayed at number six, Bruno Mars was at number seven, and Chris Stapleton fell from 5 to 8. The new Summer Latin Hits 2017 compilation enters at number 9, while former number one Harry Styles rounded out the top 10.
