Well, now it's official. Travis Scott has the No. 1 album in America.
His new LP Astroworld is debuting at the top of the Billboard 200, the U.S. album chart. According to Nielsen Music, it moved a hefty 537,000 equivalent album units, including 270,000 of which came from traditional album sales (downloads).
That sales total gave him the biggest week for actual album sales this year. It's also the second biggest week for overall units, behind only Drake's Scorpion, which started with 732,000 units.
This is Scott's second chart-topping album after 2016's Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, which also debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. album charts. That album, however, started with a much smaller first-week tally of 88,000 units (only 53,000 in traditional sales).
Astroworld's impressive entry also marks the end of Scorpion's five-week reign at the top of the Billboard 200.
