    Kendrick Lamar still sits on top of the Billboard 200. Despite some strong competition from Gorillaz — whose new album Humanz ended up debuting at number two — Lamar's DAMN. is still the number one album in the U.S. This is the third consecutive week the album has been on top of the charts.

    DAMN. is now Lamar's longest lasting number one record — To Pimp a Butterfly spent two weeks atop the charts back in 2015. The new LP also crossed the million-selling platinum line last week, and ended the week adding 173,000 albums to its already impressive sales totals.

    Gorillaz matched their previous chart peak by reaching number two, their 2010 Plastic Beach also reached number two on the chart. Humanz ended up moving 140,000 units. Mary J. Blige entered the Billboard 200 at number three with her new record Strength of a Woman. Drake slipped to number four. Ed Sheeran's Divide ended up at number five. Sony's Epic AF compilation debuted at number six. Bruno Mars' 24K Magic finished at number seven, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol.2: Awesome Mix soundtrack went in at eight, and Chainsmokers' Memories… Do Not Open ended the week at number nine.

    In what might be the most exciting news on the list, Willie Nelson's new album God's Problem Child ended up at number ten on the chart. Will Lamar still remain atop the charts next week? Or will Chris Stapleton's new LP From A Room, Vol. 1 debut in the top slot? You'll just have to tune in to find out.
