KENDRICK LAMAR’S ‘DAMN.’ TOPS BILLBOARD FOR THIRD WEEK

King Kendrick’s reign continues with a three-peat. The Compton rapper’s platinum album DAMN. remains No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for a third straight week.

DAMN. manages to keep the No. 1 spot with 173,000 units this week, including 57,000 traditional, 12,000 track equivalent albums, and 105,000 streaming equivalent albums. These are astounding figures for a third week marker, following whopping numbers in the past two weeks.

In its first week of availability, K-Dot’s third major label studio album shattered projections by moving 610,000 equivalent album units. The second week, DAMN.‘s figures surpassed 238,000.

This is also the longest K-Dot has spent at No. 1. He only had one week in the leadership position with last year’s untitled unmastered. and two weeks with 2015’s To Pimp a Butterfly.

This week, Lamar had some competition from superstar releases. Genre-benders Gorillaz open at No. 2 with 140,000 units (115,000 traditional) of their first album in nearly seven years, Humanz. Meanwhile, R&B icon Mary J. Blige’s Strength of a Woman enters at No. 3 with 78,000 units (72,000 traditional), earning her 20th placement on the Billboard 200.
