Lil Uzi Vert rockets to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with Eternal Atake.
The long-awaited album, which arrived one week early, opens with 288,000 equivalent album units, of which a little under 9,000 are in album sales. It becomes the Philly rapper’s second No. 1 and the biggest streaming week for an album since 2018.
The album’s 18 tracks earned 400 million on-demand streams, the fourth-largest streaming week ever for an album, and the largest week for any album since Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V opened with 433 million streams in October 2018. Eternal Atake also has the second-biggest overall week of 2020 for any album behind BTS’ Map of the Soul: 7, which launched with 422,000 units.
Uzi previously visited No. 1 with Luv Is Rage 2, which moved 135,000 units in September 2017.
