At the start of the week, it was revealed that Mac Miller's last album, Swimming, had returned to the top 10 of the Billboard 200, following his death earlier this month. Swimming released only three weeks prior to his untimely passing on Sept. 7, peaking at No. 3 when it debuted in August. After the tragic news broke, it re-entered at No. 6, and six of his other full-lengths have followed suit.
The records that have entered the Billboard 200 charted as follows:
Swimming at No. 6
Best Day Ever at No. 26
GO:OD AM at No. 32
Blue Side Park at No. 49
The Divine Feminine at No. 50
Watching Movies With the Sound Off at No. 59
Macadelic at No. 106
This means all five of his studio albums have entered the top 100 of the chart this week. (The top 59, really.) The 2011 mixtape Best Day Ever and 2012's Macadelic tape make their debut on the Billboard 200 this week.
Mac's passing has had a profound impact on the world of hip-hop and music as a whole, with many of his friends and collaborators paying tribute to him in the days that followed. Mac's ex, Ariana Grande, shared a heartbreaking post exactly one week after his death, writing, "I adored you from the day I met you when I was nineteen and I always will. I can't believe you aren't here anymore. I really can't wrap my head around it."
