Plus, TOMORROW X TOGETHER and Offset arrive in the top 10.
Bad Bunny claims his third No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated Oct. 28), as Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana starts atop the tally. The set earned 184,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Oct. 19, according to Luminate. Almost all of the album’s opening week was driven by streaming activity of its songs. Nadie was announced on Oct. 9 and released Oct. 13.
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, compiled by Luminate. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new Oct. 28, 2023-dated chart will be posted in full on Billboard‘s website on Oct. 24. For all chart news, follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.
Of Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana’s 184,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 19, SEA units comprise 176,000 (making it the most streamed album of the week, equaling 239.56 million on-demand official streams of the set’s songs), album sales comprise 7,500 (it was only available to purchase as a digital download album) and TEA units comprise 500.
Bad Bunny previously led the Billboard 200 with Un Verano Sin Ti (for 13 nonconsecutive weeks in 2022) and El Ultimo Tour del Mundo (one week in 2020).
As the Nadie album is essentially all-Spanish, it is the 21st mostly non-English language album to hit No. 1, and the fourth all-Spanish album to reach No. 1. Bad Bunny has three of the four all-Spanish No. 1s, while Karol G has the fourth (Mañana Será Bonito, this March).
Drake’s For All the Dogs falls to No. 2 (164,000 equivalent album units; down 59%) after debuting at No. 1 a week ago.
TOMORROW X TOGETHER lands its fourth top 10-charting effort on the Billboard 200 as The Name Chapter: Freefall debuts at No. 3 with 114,500 equivalent album units earned. Of that sum, album sales comprise 106,000 (making it the top-selling album of the week), SEA units comprise 8,000 (equaling 11.53 million on-demand official streams of the set’s nine songs) and TEA units comprise 500.
Zach Bryan’s self-titled former No. 1 rises 5-4 with 73,000 equivalent album units earned (up 37%), owed to the album’s release on vinyl and CD on Oct. 13. Of the album’s 73,000 units earned, album sales comprise 24,000 (up 2,686%).
Offset nabs his third top 10-charting title on the Billboard 200 — all of which have debuted in the top five — as Set It Off debuts at No. 5. It bows with 70,000 equivalent album units earned. Of that sum, SEA units comprise 44,500 (equaling 59.14 million on-demand official streams of the set’s 21 songs), album sales comprise 25,000 and TEA units comprise 500. (Migos, with Offset as a member, notched three top 10 sets, including two No. 1s.)
Five former No. 1s round out the top 10 of the new Billboard 200, as Morgan Wallen’s One Thing at a Time falls 2-6 (69,000 equivalent album units; down 4%), Rod Wave’s Nostalgia descends 3-7 (53,000; down 10%), Taylor Swift’s Lover rises 10-8 (52,000; up 36%), Swift’s Midnights dips 7-9 (51,000; though up 20%) and Olivia Rodrigo’s Guts falls 4-10 (49,000; down 16%).
