Travis Scott’s ‘Utopia’ Album Retains No. 1 Spot For Second Week
Travis Scott’s Utopia is the No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 for a second straight week. A rap release hasn’t spent its first two weeks in the top spot since Drake’s Certified Lover Boy in 2021, and Utopia is only the second hip-hop album to reach No. 1 this year (Lil Uzi Vert’s Pink Tape was the other.) Utopia broke streaming records in its debut as the most commercially-successful hip-hop album of the year, with nearly 500,000 album-equivalent units sold. Still, it didn’t outsell Astroworld, which moved 537,000 in its first week back in 2018.
Morgan Wallen’s album One Thing At A Time is No. 2 on the Billboard 200 this week, while the Barbie soundtrack is at No. 3. Taylor Swift currently has four albums in the Top 10: Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) (No. 4), Midnights (No. 5), Lover (No. 6) and Folklore (No. 9).
