Lana Del Rey is Now No.1 on Billboard 200 Album’s Chart
After Lana Del Rey’s latest release of ‘Lust for Life,’ she took the top rank on Billboard 200 Album’s Chart. She was up against Tyler, the Creator’s ‘Flower Boy’ and Meek Mill’s ‘Wins and Losses’ for No. 1, considering Billboard reported that these three albums were possible first place candidates.
Lana sold over 107,000 album equivalents, and 80,000 of them were traditional album sales. On the other hand, Tyler sold 106,000 units sold, which was a close battle with Lana. Meek placed third with 102,000 album equivalents sold.
Check out Lana’s album, ‘Lust for Life,’ whenever you can because it’s one of the best albums we’ve heard from Lana yet. Her 2014 album, ‘Ultraviolence’ also placed No. 1 on Billboard 200 Album’s charts, but ‘Lust for Life’ might even be better than ‘Ultraviolence.’ In fact, it features a bunch of guest artists; such as, Weeknd (on the title of the track), A$AP Rocky and Playboi Carti (on “Summer Bummer”), Sean Ono Lennon, and Stevie Nicks.
This is actually Lana’s fifth top 10-charting album, in total. She appeared in the top 10 for her full-length debut, Born to Die (No. 2 in 2012), the Paradise EP (No. 10, 2012) and her previous studio set, Honeymoon (No. 2, 2015).
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on various factors. The No. 1 is ranked as first by multi-metric consumption, like track equivalent albums, traditional album sales, and streaming equivalent albums.
The top three albums from Lana, Tyler, and Meek Mill are all new arrivals, which made the competition that much more serious. This is actually only the second time there have been three debuting titles during 2017. Additionally, this is the first time in 2017 when all three albums obtained more than 100,000 units.
Obviously, all three artists have some great albums out worth listening too. We definitely recommend that you download all of them!
