Jason Alden Achieves Third Straight No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart

Quote:

Jason Aldean earns his third No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with arrival of They Don’t Know. The set, which was released on Sept. 9 through Macon/Broken Bow Records, earned 138,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 15, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 131,000 were in traditional album sales.

Drake’s former No. 1, Views, rises one rung to No. 2 with 59,000 units. Streams of the set’s songs continue to drive the album’s high rank on the chart. In the latest tracking week, Views’ streaming equivalent units totaled 43,000. (That equals 63.8 million streams of Views’ songs.) Views was the most-streamed album of the week, by total streams of its songs. Comparably, Aldean’s They Don’t Know logged only 1.5 million streams for its tracks.

The Suicide Squad soundtrack also rises a notch, to No. 3, with 52,000 units. Unlike Views, the Suicide Squad soundtrack’s units are evenly distributed across traditional album sales (19,000 copies sold), track equivalent albums (16,000), and streaming equivalent albums (17,000).

The Beatles notch their 32nd top 10 album, as Live at the Hollywood Bowl debuts at No. 7 with 36,000 units (35,000 in traditional album sales). The group last hit the top 10 in 2013 with On Air: Live at the BBC Volume 2 (No. 7).

Rounding out the new top 10 on the Billboard 200 are Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman (rising 11-9 with 30,000 units; up 19 percent) and Florida Georgia Line’s Dig Your Roots (dipping 5-10 with 30,000 units; down 29 percent).
