Lil Baby and Gunna's collab project Drip Harder narrowly exceeded its first-week projections by moving 130,000 equivalent album units to take the No. 4 spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week. Nearly all of the units amassed by Drip Harder came by way of streams where it totaled 121,000 streaming equivalent albums. That number accounts for 164.63 million on-demand audio streams, which would make it the most streamed album of the week.
Drip Harder was projected to reach somewhere between 115,000 and 125,000 equivalent album units, with 5,000 to 7,000 coming from traditional album sales.
The A Star Is Born soundtrack moved 231,000 equivalent album units to take the top spot this week, well ahead of Twenty One Pilots' fifth studio album Trench, which finished in second with 175,000 units. A Star Is Born's album sales of 162,000 units puts them in third among largest selling soundtracks of 2018, trailing The Greatest Showman with 1.26 million, and the 223,000 amassed by Black Panther: The Album.
Sitting in third this week is Tha Carter V by Lil Wayne, which fell from the No. 1 spot after experiencing a 72 percent decline with 135,000 units.
