Roddy Ricch Dethrones Eminem on Billboard 200 With Debut Album

Meanwhile, Billie Eilish’s ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ surges on this week’s chart following the 18-year-old singer’s big win at the 2020 Grammy Awards.

AceShowbizEminem has to give back the No. 1 spot on this week’s Billboard 200 chart to Roddy Ricch. The rapper’s debut album, “Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial”, is topping the weekly chart for a third non-consecutive week after racking up a little under 95,000 equivalent album units in the week ending January 30, according to Nielsen Music.

His record’s return to the top spot is largely driven by streaming activity with 92,000 SEA units contributing to its overall total of just under 95,000 units. Meanwhile, only 1,000 units were sold in album sales. Furthermore, “Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial” marks the first album to top the chart for three non-consecutive weeks after Billie Eilish did it in 2019 with “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”

Getting dethroned by Roddy, Em’s “Music to Be Murdered By” descends to No. 2 with 89,000 units. On the other hand, Billie’s debut album sees a surge in this week’s chart thanks to her big win at the 2020 Grammy Awards last month. “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”, which is named Album of the Year, jumps to No. 3 with 62,000 units. At No. 4, Halsey‘s “Manic” is forced to go down two spots with 56,000 units, followed up with Post Malone‘s “Hollywood’s Bleeding” at No. 5. It racked up 54,000 units.

Mac Miller‘s “Circles” falls to No. 6 with 45,000 units, as DaBaby‘s “Kirk” ascends to No. 7 with 36,000 units. Trailing behind the rapper’s album is Harry Styles‘ “Fine Line” that moves up to No. 8 with 33,000 units. MoneyBagg Yo‘s “Time Served” follows behind at No. 9 with 31,000 units, while Travis Scott (II)-leading project group Jackboys closes out the top ten with their self-titled album that sold 30,000 units.

Next week, the competition for the No. 1 spot is expected to be fierce with Lil Wayne‘s “Funeral” and Kesha a.k.a. Ke$ha‘s new album “High Road” vying for the spot.
