P!nk‘s newest album Beautiful Trauma debuts at #1 on this week’s Billboard 200 chart, giving her the largest debut week for any female artist in 2017. Nielsen Music reports the album earned 408,000 equivalent album units and 384,000 were in traditional album sales, giving her the best sales week of any act this year. She also has the largest traditional sales week in well over a year, since Drake‘s Views was released in May of 2016. P!nk’s 2012 album The Truth About Love also debuted at #1. Beautiful Trauma has the fourth-biggest week of 2017 in terms of total units, behind Kendrick Lamar, Drake and Ed Sheeran. As with many top releases lately, Beautiful Trauma was boosted by a CD-ticket bundle for P!nk’s upcoming arena tour.
At #2 is rapper Gucci Mane, whose newest album Mr. Davis earned 70,000 units, 21,000 of which were from traditional album sales. Colors, Beck‘s follow-up to his Grammy-winning album Morning Phase, debuts at #3 with 46,000 units (41,000 in traditional sales). Billboard notes it is Beck’s sixth top ten record. Morning Phase also debuted at #3 in 2014.
Post Malone comes in at #4 with Stoney, followed by Lil Uzi Vert at #5 and Ed Sheeran at #6. Imagine Dragons move to #7 with A Boogie Wit da Hoodie at #8 and Lil Pump at #9.
The top ten is rounded out with one more debut, as St. Vincent arrives at #10 with MASSEDUCTION.
