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.
Two other new albums debuted in the Top Ten: The 1975’s Notes on a Conditional Form (Number Seven) and Agust D’s D-2 (Number 10). The 1975’s total was driven largely by album sales, which accounted for 25,300 of the band’s 41,400 units. Agust D, known to millions of K-Pop fans as Suga of the group BTS, also amassed impressive sales totals. The 10 tracks on D-2 amassed more than 90,000 downloads. Suga also sold over 14,000 copies of the album.
Outside of the Top Ten, Memphis rapper Key Glock debuted at Number 36 with Son of a Gun and the country duo Florida Georgia Line arrived at Number 48 with 6-Pack.
Next week, Lady Gaga is expected to have the Number One album in the country with Chromatica.
