After three weeks in charge of the most important albums ranking in the U.S., Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding has finally stepped aside to make room for DaBaby’s sophomore album Kirk, which becomes his first leader on the all-encompassing tally. Malone might not be running the show anymore (at least not for now), but he hasn’t gone far, as his third full-length only dips to No. 2.

Incredibly, the No. 3 spot on the Billboard 200 is occupied by The Beatles, and no, they don’t have a new album out. The biggest band ever (in many respects) are back inside the highest tier on the ranking with Abbey Road, one of their most celebrated releases. The title was re-released with new never-before-heard material to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the beloved recording.

This week, Abbey Road moved another 81,000 equivalent units (with 70,000 sales), which is enough to send it straight into the highest reaches of the Billboard 200, despite the fact that millions of Americans already own a copy.

Rapper Kevin Gates is also back inside the top 10 on the all-genre albums tally thanks to his new release I’m Him, which opens at No. 4. The set shifted 70,000 equivalent units, with 10,000 of those being actual sales. I’m Him is only Gates’ sophomore proper album, though he’s found success with a number of his commercial mixtapes. The hip-hop star has now pushed four projects into the region, placing one inside the uppermost area every year since 2016.

Today In: Business

Taylor Swift’s most recent release Lover slips to No. 5 this frame, pushed down in part by the slew of new entrants.

Country/Southern rock outfit Whiskey Myers reach the Billboard 200’s top 10 for the first time in their tenure together with a self-titled release. The set begins its time on the list at No. 6, which easily becomes their highest ranking on the chart, as they have never before broken into the top 40. Whiskey Myers moved 42,000 equivalent units upon its arrival, and 39,000 of those are pure purchases.

The final four titles inside the top 10 this frame are Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? at No. 7, Young Thug’s So Much Fun at No. 8, Lizzo’s Cuz I Love You at No. 9 and rapper Lil Tecca’s We Love You Tecca at No. 10.
