DJ Khaled Earns First No. 1 on Billboard 200 with ‘Major Key’

Another one. Make that, his first one.

DJ Khaled earns his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart thanks to his star-studded ninth studio album Major Key.

Selling 95,000 equivalent album units (59,000 traditional), Major Key dethrones Drake’s Views, which has held the No. 1 spot for 12 non-consecutive weeks.

This is the largest sales week for Khaled since 2007’s We the Best hit No. 8 with 79,000 units sold. Aside from being his highest-charting album, Major Key is also his seventh top 10 LP. His second highest-charting project was 2012’s Kiss the Ring.

Aside from Khaled, Fantasia returns to the top 10 this week with her fifth album The Definition Of…, which debuts at No. 6 with almost 32,000 units (29,000 traditional). The R&B songstress also holds the No. 1 spot on the R&B Albums chart.

Elsewhere, Drake’s Views drops to No. 2 with 80,000 units and Rihanna’s ANTI rounds out the top 5 (32,000).
