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.
The only other major debut on the latest RS 200 belonged to Marilyn Manson. We Are Chaos, Manson’s first album in nearly three years, arrived at Number Eight. The set earned just 3.5 millions streams but close to 24,000 downloads.
Next week, expect a flurry of new releases to debut in the Top 15, including Alicia Keys’ Alicia and Lil Tecca’s Virgo World.
