Juice WRLD’s posthumous album Legends Never Die enjoyed a second week at Number One on the Rolling Stone Top 200 Albums chart, earning more than 180 million streams and close to 24,000 sales. The album previously earned the biggest opening week of any album in 2020.
Behind Juice WRLD at Number Two was Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon, the posthumous album from the Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke. Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon earned a bump from a deluxe version that included more than a dozen new tracks. The album amassed nearly 145 million streams. Jhene Aiko’s Chilombo also returned to the Top Ten on the chart thanks to a beefed-up deluxe edition.
The week’s highest debut went to the Chicks’ long-awaited Gaslighter. The album only picked up around 11 million streams, but the group’s fans bought almost 63,000 copies of the Chicks’ first new studio full-length since 2006.

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.
