For the fourth week of 2020, Lil Baby's My Turn sits in the top spot of the Billboard 200. In doing so, it tied The Weeknd's After Hours for the honor of having the most turns at No. 1 in this calendar year.
As you may recall, My Turn also sat atop the chart in last week's ranking of the top selling albums for the seven-day run. While this week wasn't quite as fruitful as the last (by a nose), My Turn still grabbed 70,000 equivalent album units in the U.S., down just three percent from the numbers it posted during the week of June 12-18, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. This means that the album has hit No. 1 for three straight weeks, in addition to the time it topped the chart on March 14.
As for spots 2-10, those broke down as so:
In the runner-up spot was Bob Dylan's Rough and Rowdy Ways, which scored him the highest spot that he's gotten to in more than a decade. Rowdy Ways sold 53,000 equivalent albums, most of which came from traditional album sales. For reference, the last time Dylan tracked this high was May 16, 2009, when he hit the top spot for Together Through Life.
By jumping into the top 10 (let alone No. 2), Dylan has now had 23 albums to make it that high. He's also had 50 albums make it into the top 40. To put his career longevity in perspective, Billboard notes that Dylan had eight top 40 albums in the 60s, 14 top 40 albums in the '70s, seven top 40 albums in the '80s, four in the '90s, seven in the '00s, and nine in the '10s. As for this newest album, it was his first to chart in the top 40 in the '20s but, you know, the decade just started less than six months ago.
At the most current No. 3 spot was A Boogie Wit da Hoodie's Artist 2.0, which made a massive jump from No. 80 to the third-sport, after he put out a deluxe reissue on June 19. All told it earned 43,000 equivalent album units, nearly a 300 percent jump from the week prior. In what would appear to be evidence of the generation gap, in contrast with Dylan, almost all of those album units were earned via streaming activity.
Artist 2.0 made its first appearance on the list back on February 29, peaking all the way at No. 2. For the first two weeks it sat in the top 10. After the reissue (which added nine songs to the original tracklist) its back near the top.
All three of the four-through-six spots are occupied by ex-No. 1's. At fourth is DaBaby's Blame It On Baby. That album fell one spot from last week, and sold 37,000 equivalent album units. In fifth was Post Malone's Hollywood's Bleeding, that was 1,000 behind DaBaby with 36,000 units moved. In sixth was last week's No. 2, namely Lady Gaga's Chromatica, which sold 33,000 units.
At seventh was Drake's Dark Lane Demo Tapes, which sold 32,000 units, and fell from last week's fifth-spot.
In eighth this week was Teyana Taylor with The Album. That also earned 32,000 equivalent album units, and helped Taylor secure her first top 10 spot. Her former high came in 2018 after K.T.S.E. reached no. 17.
