    Lil Uzi Vert has the number one album in the country this week:


    Rapper Lil Uzi Vert bows at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with his debut studio album, Luv Is Rage 2, starting with 135,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Aug. 31, according to Nielsen Music. The album was released on Aug. 25 through Generation Now/Atlantic Records, and follows two earlier charting efforts for the artist.

    It looks like PVRIS sold around 11k copies in their first week. Brand New did another 4k (a 94% drop from their chart-topping first week).

    I really think the last-minute change of the release date killed it.

    I think you might be right there. I was honestly expecting 30-40k.

    I wonder how far that dropped Brand New, gotta be up there for biggest 2nd week drop for a number one album.
     
  8. Out of the top 50. Pretty sure it's the biggest drop ever.

    I think that's the Circle by Bon Jovi? It had a huge drop IIRC.

    Edit: Never mind. It had a much smaller drop than I remember.

    That's disappointing. The new PVRIS album is excellent! I hoped they would've charted much better.

    "This House Is Not For Sale" by Bon Jovi dropped from 1-43, and that was previously the biggest drop on the 200 charts ever.
