Lana Del Rey's new album Lust for Life has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album charts.
According to Nielsen Music, the record moved 107,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 27, with a total of 80,000 in traditional album sales. It marks the singer's second chart-topper after her 2014 album Ultraviolence also started at No. 1.
Del Rey had been in a close battle with both Tyler, the Creator and Meek Mill, whose Flower Boy and Wins and Losses debut at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. Tyler's set moved 106,000 units, just shy of Lust for Life, while Wins and Losses was not far behind with 102,000.
The Billboard 200 rankings were released later than usual this week due to "technical issues" with one of the data providers, which prevented a complete delivery of chart information prior to Wednesday.
