The Detroit rapper scores his eighth straight No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with his latest album. Featuring Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Ed Sheeran, and Kehlani, the star-studded set debuts with 267,000 equivalent album units. Of that number, 197,000 are traditional album sales.

G-Eazy scores the second biggest debut of the week with his third major label album The Beautiful & Damned, which opens at No. 3 and becomes his third top 10 in a row. The album, which features the Cardi B and A$AP Rocky-assisted hit “No Limit,” enters with 122,000 units (68,000 in traditional sales).

The Snowman, Jeezy, blows onto the charts with his ninth top 10 album, Pressure, which debuts at No. 6 with 72,000 units (54,000 in traditional sales). All of the Atlanta rapper’s albums have debuted in the top 10, starting with his debut, 2005’s Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101.
