Six new albums debut in the top ten of this week’s Billboard 200, including four releases in the top four slots. Coming in at #1 is a live album from Country star Kenny Chesney. Live in No Shoes Nation is his eighth #1 record and Nielsen Music reports that it earned 219,000 total album equivalent units. Live in No Shoes Nation is also the first live album to hit #1 in over seven years, according to Billboard. As with many #1 albums this year, it benefited from an album/ticket bundle.
At #2 is Kelly Clarkson‘s latest album Meaning of Life, her first for Atlantic Records. The record earned 79,000 equivalent album units, of which 68,000 were in traditional album sales. It’s Clarkson’s eighth top ten album of her career. At #3 is Chris Brown with Heartbreak on a Full Moon. The 45-song double album was released on Halloween and only had three full days of charting eligibility.
The surprise collaborative album from 21 Savage, Offset and Metro Boomin, appropriately titled No Warning, comes in at #4. Like Brown’s new record, the album arrived on October 31, one day after its announcement. Post Malone is at #5 with Stoney.
The fifth debut of the week comes from rapper Yo Gotti with I Still Am at #6. Another Hip-Hop album arrives at #7, with Big K.R.I.T. and 4eva is a Mighty Long Time.
The top ten is rounded out with Ed Sheeran at #8, Future & Young Thug at #9 and Lil Uzi Vert at #10.
