Bryson Tiller earned his first #1 album on the Billboard 200 with True to Self, earning 107,000 equivalent album units. The record was released a month earlier than its announced date and is the follow-up to last year’s Trapsoul. At #3 is The Beatles’ classic Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, thanks to its deluxe 50th anniversary reissue. Billboard notes that Sgt. Pepper was last at #3 on its chart way back in December of 1967. The last Beatles release to reach the top five of the Billboard 200 was the best-of set 1 in 2001.
At #2 is Kendrick Lamar with DAMN. and Drake comes in at #4 with More Life.
The next debut in the Top 10 is from Lil Yachty, as the rapper’s debut studio album Teenage Emotions lands at #5. He had previously charted with a pair of mixtapes.
Ed Sheeran is at #6, with Bruno Mars at #7 and Chris Stapleton at #8. The Summer Latin Hits 2017 compilation is the next-highest debut this week at #9 and the top ten is rounded out with Harry Styles and his eponymous release at #10.
