As expected, Kendrick Lamar's new album DAMN. is spending a second consecutive week at No. 1 on the U.S. charts.
According to Nielsen Music, the record moved 238,000 equivalent album units during the tracking week ending on April 27, enough to easily secure the top spot on the Billboard 200 album chart.
While the overall tally marked a 61% drop from last week's debut of 603,000 units, it still sold 87,000 copies of traditional albums. And it's total number is no small feat.
For comparison, DAMN.’s second-week is still the fourth-largest sales week of the year, behind only its own debut last week as well as Drake's More Life debut (505,000) and Ed Sheeran's ÷ (Divide) first week totals.
