Lil Uzi Vert has the number one album in the United States. The rapper's debut studio effort, Luv Is Rage 2, entered the chart at number one, just one spot ahead of another debut, XXXTentacion's 17.
Luv is Rage 2 moved a total of 135,000 equivalent album units, 100,000 of which came from streaming. That streaming sum is the most for an album since Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. tallied 105,000 units back in May.
It was a strong week for debut albums on the Billboard chart. In total, seven new albums appeared in the top 10 of this week's ranking. That's the most since November of 2016, when seven albums also launched in the top 10. Queens of the Stone Age's Villains came in at number three, making for their third top five album. Fifth Harmony's new self-titled effort appeared at number four, tying them with Destiny's Child and the Dixie Chicks for second most top 10s among all-female groups — the Supremes lead the way with eight. A$AP Mob's Cozy Tapes, Vol. 2: Too Cozy entered at number six. Country group Old Dominion's Happy Endings launches at number seven. And The War on Drugs' A Deeper Understanding, debuted at number 10, making for their first top 10 record.
Elsewhere on the chart, Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. fell from number three to number five. Khalid's American Dream dropped two slots to number eight. And Kodak Black's Project Baby Two sunk to number nine.
