Jay-Z and Kanye West remain kings of the charts for another week. The rap superstars’ collaborative album Watch the Throne holds the No. 1 spot again on this week’s Billboard 200.

Throne sold an additional 177,000 copies in its second week to bring its sales total to 613,000, according to Billboard. The album officially spent one full week at digital and physical retailers since its release on August 8. It opened with 436,000 copies based primarily on digital sales at iTunes.

Unlike the previous week where digital sales accounted for 74% of Throne‘s intake, digital purchases only represented 35% of sales this week.

On the Digital Songs chart, Lil Wayne’s Drake-assisted single “She Will” debuts at No. 1, marking the largest sales week for a single since LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” in July.
