Roddy Ricch Reclaims Top Spot On Billboard 200 Albums Chart

Roddy Ricch is back at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart for a third non-consecutive week, with his Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial making it to the top of the list dated February 8.

According to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, Roddy’s record earned nearly 95,000 equivalent album units in the week ending January 30.

The album’s ascent was due largely to heavy streaming activity, with 92,000 SEA units contributing to the overall total of album units logged in the tracking week.

The album first hit No. 1 on the chart dated December 21. Then, after a three-week gap, rose to the top again on the chart dated January 18.

The last album to have three separate visits to the top spot was Billie Eilish‘s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?. The album was No. 1 in its debut week on April 13, 2019, and then on May 4 and June 8 that year.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
