Metro Boomin is opening this week’s Billboard 200 at No. 1 with his latest studio album, Heroes & Villains.
The star-studded record earns 185,000 equivalent album units in its first week — marking the artist’s biggest debut week yet. The sum includes 179,000 streaming equivalent album units (233.38 million on-demand streams of the tracks), 5,000 album sales and 1,000 track equivalent album units. Heroes & Villains also gives Metro his third No. 1 following Savage Mode II with 21 Savage in 2020 and Not All Heroes Wear Capes in 2018, his fifth top 10 and seventh Billboard 200 entry.
Metro effectively dethrones Taylor Swift who moves down to No. 2 followed by Drake and 21 Savage at No. 3, Bad Bunny at No. 4 and Michael Bublé at No. 5. Making up the bottom half of this week’s top 10 are Harry Styles, Morgan Wallen, The Weeknd, Nat King Cole and Mariah Carey at Nos. 6 to 10, respectively.
