It has been 13 weeks since Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. was Number One on the Billboard album chart, but now it's back on top. This is the fourth total week DAMN. has spent in the Number One slot, and the record has never left the top five since it was released 16 weeks ago.
DAMN. moved 47,000 total copies, which is the second lowest total for a Number One album on the chart since it began to include streaming in its calculation in late 2014. The lowest ever was The Descendants soundtrack, which moved 42,000 units in August of 2015.
Country singer Brett Eldredge's self-titled album debuted at number two on the chart. The only other new release to reach the Top 10 this week was Now 63, which came in at number five.
Elsewhere on the charts things stage mostly the same. DJ Khaled's Grateful moved up one slot to number three, while Meek Mill's Wins & Losses fell one slot to number four. 21 Savage's Issa Album held steady at number six. Ed Sheeran's Divide climbed to number seven. Imagine Dragons' Evolve fell to eight.
Two albums reentered the Top 10 this week, though both didn't have to climb far to do so. SZA's Ctrl climbed from 13 to nine, while Khalid's American Teen rose one spot to number 10. Last week's Number One, Arcade Fire's Everything Now, tumbled out of the top 10.
