Travis Scott’s third studio album ASTROWORLD debuted at No. 1 as it moved 537,000 equivalent album units its first week and 270,000 in traditional album sales, according to Billboard. La Flame’s highly anticipated album easily met expectations that it would push over 450,000 units in its first week. ASTROWORLD is Scott's second No. 1 album following Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight.
Scott has also ended Drake's five-week run at the top of the chart with Scorpion.
“ASTROWORLD’s been set in stone since Rodeo,” Travis told Zane Lowe last week. “My whole idea was if you locked in to Rodeo, you definitely locked into ASTROWORLD. I’m just finishing the saga I started on my first album. This is supposed to be my second album. I had to go quick, because like I said, I had all these ideas, I just had to get off real quick, but now I’m finally back home with ASTROWORLD.”
But ASTROWORLD wasn’t the only big album to drop last week. YG released Stay Dangerous, which pushed 56,000 units, putting him in the No. 5 spot behind Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys. Meanwhile, Mac Miller shared Swimming, which moved 66,000 units, landing him the No. 3 spot on the Billboard 200.
