For a third consecutive week, Black Panther: The Album has topped the Billboard 200. The Kendrick Lamar and Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith-curated project has earned the top spot once again with 76,000 equivalent album units, 15,000 which in traditional sales.

The Black Panther film has also enjoyed continued success over the last 3 weeks. It topped $1 billion worldwide as Saturday.
Meanwhile, Tory Lanez' sophomore album Memories Don't Die comes in at No. 3 with 54,000 equivalent album units, 15,000 the figure coming through in pure sales. This is Tory's highest sales week yet, surpassing his debut I Told You, which launched at No. 4 with 52,000 equivalent album units.
Migos' Culture II, released in January, fell to No. 4 this week with 52,000 equivalent album units moved. Post Malone's 2015 album STONEY is up one notch to No. 6 with 35,000 units.
