Editor’s Note (4/30): Due to a technical error, this post has been corrected to reflect revised chart positions for three albums. dvsn’s A Muse in Her Feelings debuted at number 24. Westsie Gunn’s Pray for Paris debuted at 71. Jeremy Zucker’s Love Is Not Dying debuted at 58. Rolling Stone regrets the error.
DaBaby’s Blame It on Baby swept to Number One on the latest Rolling Stone Top 200 Albums chart. The rapper earned nearly 130 million streams, along with 11,600 album sales and 21,100 song downloads. He easily dethroned the Weeknd’s After Hours, which spent the previous four weeks at Number One. The Weeknd fell to Number Two, but After Hours still earned a robust 55.5 million streams more than a month after its release.
The week’s other notable debut belonged to Fiona Apple: Fetch the Bolt Cutters, her first album since 2012, arrived at Number Three. Apple’s total was largely driven by album sales — more than 30,000 — though she also amassed 16.3 million streams.
The Rolling Stone 200 Albums chart tracks the most popular releases of the week in the United States. Entries are ranked by album units, a number that combines digital and physical album sales, digital song sales, and audio streams using a custom weighting system. The chart does not include passive listening such as terrestrial radio or digital radio. The Rolling Stone 200 Albums chart is updated daily, and each week Rolling Stone finalizes and publishes an official version of the chart, covering the seven-day period ending with the previous Thursday.
While DaBaby and Apple made splashy debuts, no other new albums arrived in the Top 20. The R&B duo dvsn, who are signed to Drake’s OVO label, streamed their way to Number 24 with A Muse in Her Feelings. The rapper Westside Gunn arrived at Number 71 with his new album Pray for Paris. And the singer-songwriter Jeremy Zucker’s Love Is Not Dying debuted at Number 58.
Next week, the rapper Youngboy Never Broke Again is expected to take the Number One spot with 38 Baby 2.
