‘Wunna’ Wins: Gunna Earns First No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart
Plus: The 1975 land third top 10 album with “Notes on a Conditional Form.”
Gunna grabs his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart as his latest release, Wunna, debuts atop the tally.
The set, which was released via Young Stoner Life/300 on May 22, launches with 111,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending May 28, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
Of Wunna’s first-week units, nearly all are from streaming activity.
Elsewhere in the new top 10, The 1975’s Notes on a Conditional Form enters at No. 4, marking the band’s third top 10 effort.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new June 6-dated chart (where Wunna bows at No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard‘s website on June 2.
Of Wunna’s starting sum of 110,000 equivalent album units, SEA units comprise 106,000 (equating to 143.6 million on-demand streams of the set’s tracks in the week ending May 28), album sales total 4,000 and TEA units equal less than 1,000. Gunna ranked as high as No. 3 with his last release, Drip or Drown 2, when it debuted on the March 9, 2019-dated list with 90,000 units earned. The rapper clocked one prior top 10 with Drip Harder, his collaborative set with Lil Baby, which reached No. 4 on the Oct. 20, 2018, chart.
Speaking of Lil Baby, his latest album, My Turn, rises one spot to No. 2 on the new Billboard 200. The former No. 1 tallied 65,000 equivalent album units in the latest tracking week, down less than 1%. Future’s High Off Life falls from No. 1 to No. 3 in its second week, with 61,000 units (down 60%).
The 1975’s Notes on a Conditional Form debuts at No. 4 with 54,000 equivalent album units earned. Of that sum, 39,000 are from album sales. It’s the third top 10 album for the band, which previously visited the region with A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships (No. 4 in 2018) and I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It (No. 1 in 2016).
Polo G’s The Goat slips from No. 2 to No. 5 in its second frame, earning 52,000 equivalent album units (down 48%), while Drake’s Dark Lane Demo Tapes descends from No. 4 to No. 6 with 48,000 units (down 17%).
Four former No. 1s round out the top 10: DaBaby’s Blame It on Baby falls 5-7 with 42,000 units (down 3%), The Weeknd’s After Hours shifts 7-8 with 40,000 units (up 6%), Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake dips 6-9 with 37,000 units (down 4%) and Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding moves 8-10 with just under 37,000 units (down 1%).
