As predicted, Logic earned his first number one album on the Billboard 200 with Everybody. The final tally showed that Everybody, which was released May 5, notched over 247,000 copies sold with 196,000 being traditional album sales. Logic’s ascent officially knocks Kendrick Lamar’s juggernaut DAMN. off the top of the charts. The Compton rapper will settle for No. 3 this week.
Everybody becomes Logic’s first number one album following peaks of No. 3 (The Incredible True Story in 2015) and No. 4 (Under Pressure in 2014). Only Bobby Tarantino, Logic’s 2016 “mixtape” failed to crack the top 10 as it landed at No. 12. The Maryland rapper can thank streaming numbers for pushing his latest effort to the top of the charts. 47,000 in streaming equivalent album (SEA) sales and 4,000 in track equivalent album (TEA) sales pushed the album head of Chris Stapleton’s sophomore effort, From A Room: Volume 1 which notched impressive sales figures in its own right.
The Traveller singer/songwriter garnered his most impressive first week ever and currently sits at No. 2 with 219,000 units sold, 201,000 of which were traditional album sales. Stapleton shouldn’t be discouraged by his showing on the charts however. From A Room: Volume 1 earned the largest sales week for a country album in more than a year and a half.
