Meek Mill Lands Second Week at No. 1
Meek Mill is on top once again. The Philly rapper scores a second week at No. 1 with his sophomore album Dreams Worth More Than Money.
The first Billboard 200 albums chart has been released since the new global release day. Friday now serves as the release day for most albums, so the tracking period will cover Friday through Thursday, instead of Monday through Sunday.
Meek ushers in the new chart at No. 1, moving 307,000 album units in the 11-day period ending July 9. That number combines the 246,000 units it earned in the previous week with the 61,000 units collected between July 6 and July 9.

DWMTM, which features appearances from The Weeknd, Nicki Minaj, and Drake, marks Meek’s first No. 1 on the Billboard 200. His first-week numbers surpassed the opening week of his 2012 debut, Dreams and Nightmares (165,000).
Meanwhile, Miguel’s Wildheart falls 2-3, selling 65,000 in 11 days, while Ed Sheeran’s x remains at No. 4 (63,000).
