According to Alpha Data, Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” tops the list of Rolling Stone albums for the second week in a row, with more than 222,000 project units. The album has moved more than twice to the biggest debut of the week, Cassie Musgraves’ “Star-Crossed”. This album made a strong entry at No. 2 with nearly, 0005,000 units. Masgravs was the best-selling album of the week, with more than half being sold from vinyl.
Also this huge debut is Baby Kim, who dropped to No. 5 with “The Melodic Blue”. The album was the most-debuted debut of the week, capturing 64 million streams, with Kendrick Lamar not appearing in any of the smaller songs.
The rest of the top 10 includes previous chart-toppers, such as Kanye West’s “Danda” (No. 3) and Olivia Rodrigo’s “Talk” (No. 4). Due to release. See the full chart here.
The top 20 debuted at No. 12 from J. Balvin’s “Jose,” and another return, Aliahar’s 2001 self-titled album, which was so legally complicated that it was never posted on streaming services. Re-released earlier this month, the album came in at number 14 with over 10 million streams.
The Rolling Stone 200 album chart tracks the most popular releases of the week in the United States. Entries are ranked by album unit, a number that combines digital and physical album sales, digital music sales, and audio streams using a custom weighing system. The chart does not include passive listening like stationary radio or digital radio. The Rolling Stone 200 album chart is updated daily, and each week finalizes and releases an official version of the Rolling Stone chart, which includes the seven-day period ending last Thursday.
