After a week in which four of the top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 chart were Christmas efforts, the list shakes off the season in its top tier, and welcomes a new No. 1 from the Travis Scott-led Jackboys project.
The seven-track hip-hop set was released on Dec. 27, 2019, via Cactus Jack/Epic Records, and launches with 154,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending Jan. 2, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 79,000 were in album sales — with most of that number owed to sales driven by dozens of merchandise/album bundles sold via Jackboys’ official webstore.
