PARIS, FRANCE – SEPTEMBER 20: Juice Wrld performs at Elysee Montmartre on September 20, 2018 in … [+]
Five albums hit special milestones this week on the Billboard 200 as a handful of new titles make themselves heard and blast onto the tally inside the top 10. From country to hip-hop to standards and old-school pop, Americans have diverse taste, but they are only listening to more and more music.
Here are five albums that made big moves on the Billboard 200 chart this week.
No. 37 – Juice WRLD – Death Race For Love
Last spring, Juice WRLD reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for the first time with Death Race for Love, which also marked his third appearance inside the top 10 on the tally. The rapper may not be around to celebrate, but the set has now lived on the chart for 52 weeks, or exactly one year. It’s still going strong inside the top 40, kept afloat largely by healthy streaming activity.
At the same time his last album continues performing well, Juice WRLD lands a new hit on the Hot 100, as “PTSD,” a new song fronted by G Herbo which features Lil Uzi Vert, Chance the Rapper and the late musician, kicks off at No. 38.
No. 69 – Maren Morris – GIRL
Just a few spots below Juice WRLD’s album is another that also hits a year on the Billboard 200. Maren Morris’ GIRL, her sophomore full-length, is also enjoying a special week, as it has been able to hold on and find space on the ranking for 52 frames.
No. 75 – Cardi B – Invasion of Privacy
As she continues to work on what will be her sophomore album (though not much has been heard about the project in some time), fans of Cardi B areclearly not done streaming and buying her debut full-length, which turned her into a superstar two years ago. Invasion of Privacy opened atop the list and hasn’t departed since, racking up 100 weeks on the list.
No. 171 – The Beach Boys – Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys
One of the most beloved pop groups of all time, The Beach Boys continue to move audiences to this day with their biggest hits, all of which are compiled on their release Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys, which is back on the chart at No. 171 this frame, its two-hundredth on the list.
No. 173 – Frank Sinatra – Ultimate Sinatra
Like The Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra’s music has barely waned in popularity over time, and people continue to pick up copies of his greatest hits compilations, especially Ultimate Sinatra. The set has now moved enough units to appear on the Billboard 200 in 100 different frames since it was released in 2015.
