DJ Khaled Spends Second Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200, Calvin Harris Debuts at No. 2
DJ Khaled’s Grateful notches a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart — it is the first album to spend more than one week at No. 1 in two months. In the week ending July 6, Grateful earned 70,000 equivalent album units (down 53 percent), according to Nielsen Music. Traditional album sales comprised 16,000 (down 68 percent) of that sum.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new July 22, 2017-dated chart (where DJ Khaled holds for a second week at No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, July 11.
DJ Khaled’s Grateful finished its second week stronger than expected, as some industry forecasters had suggested the album would earn around 60,000 units for the week. The album continues to be supported largely by streams, as it tallied 42,000 SEA units — down 48 percent — equaling 63.4 million on-demand audio streams for the album’s songs. Grateful also earned 12,000 TEA units for the week (down 36 percent). (Billboard)
