"Die Lit" is Carti's first top ten album.
Post Malone's beerbongs & bentleys has maintained its position at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for a third consecutive week, Billboard reports. It logs 147,000 equivalent album units this week, down 24 percent from its chart-topping week two. It is now the first project of the year to score three consecutive weeks in the top spot. In fact, it is the first to do so since Taylor Swift's Reputation spent three consecutive weeks on top in December. The Black Panther OST also logged three non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 earlier in the year.
Meanwhile, Playboi Carti has earned his largest debut with Die Lit coming in at No. 3. The album moved 61,000 units, only 5,000 of which in traditional sales. It's his first top ten album. His 2016 self-titled project previously peaked at No. 12.
Interestingly enough, Pink's Beautiful Trauma, released last October, has jumped back to No. 2. The album was pushed back up the charts by a deal she offered with concert tickets that gave fans a redemption on the album. It moves 139,000 units and jumps from 83 to 2.
Charlie Puth, known for his No. 1 collaboration with Wiz Khalifa, "See You Again," has debuted at No. 4 with VoiceNotes. The album logs 58,000 units in its first week. J. Cole's KOD has dropped from 2 to 6 while Cardi B's Invasion Of Privacy slips from 4 to 7.
