Drake and Future claim the third-biggest debut this year with 375K units (behind Drake himself and The Weeknd), and the second-biggest sales debut this year with 334K copies (behind only Drake). Both Drake and Future now have two #1 albums in this calendar year, which hasn't been done since Justin Timberlake in 2013. Lana Del Rey settles for second place with 116K units and 105K proper sales, a big decrease from Ultraviolence which debuted on 182K copies last year. Still better than Born To Die's first week of 77K, so not all bad.

Seven Debuts Hit Top 10 of Billboard 200 Chart, Led by Drake & Future, Lana Del Rey and Mac Miller
By Keith Caulfield | September 27, 2015 5:20 PM EDT

The top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart (dated Oct. 10) is jam-packed with debuts, as a total of seven new entries populate the region — the most top 10 debuts in nearly a year. The chart last housed seven top 10 debuts back on the Nov. 8, 2014-dated list.

The new chart is led by the new surprise album from Drake and Future, What a Time to Be Alive, which opens at No. 1 with 375,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Sept. 24 (according to Nielsen Music) — the third-largest week for an album in 2015.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Oct. 10-dated chart (where Drake and Future are No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Sept. 29.

Coming in at No. 2 on the new chart is Lana Del Rey’s Honeymoon, with 116,000 units (105,000 in pure album sales). It’s the fourth top 10 album for Del Rey, and follows her chart-topping Ultraviolence in 2014. The latter set opened with 182,000 sold in its first week.

Last week’s No. 1 album, The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness (which happens to feature Del Rey), slips to No. 3 with 90,000 units (down 9 percent).

Rapper Mac Miller sees his new Go:od AM clock in at No. 4 with 87,000 units (73,000 in pure album sales). It’s the third consecutive top 10 album for Miller, who previously reached No. 1 in 2011 with Blue Slide Park and No. 3 in 2013 with Watching Movies With the Sound Off.

David Gilmour earns his highest charting solo album ever, as Rattle That Lock enters at No. 5 with 71,000 units (70,000 in pure album sales). The Pink Floyd member’s earlier high-water mark came in 2006 with On an Island, which debuted and peaked at No. 6.

Rock band Shinedown debuts at No. 6 with its latest effort, Threat to Survival (65,000 units; 61,000 in sales). It’s the group’s third top 10, and first chart entry since 2012’s Amaryllis debuted and peaked at No. 4.

Ryan Adams’ interpretation of Taylor Swift’s 1989 album bows at No. 7 with 56,000 units (49,000 in album sales). It’s the fourth top 10 for Adams, who previously visited the top 10 with his self-titled album in 2014 (No. 4), Ashes & Fire in 2011 (No. 7) and Easy Tiger in 2007 (No. 7).

Right behind Adams’ new 1989 is the album that inspired it: Taylor Swift’s 1989. The latter descends from No. 5 to No. 8 with 42,000 units (down 4 percent).

Luke Bryan’s former No. 1, Kill the Lights, falls 6-9 with 37,000 (down less than 1 percent).

Closing out the top 10 is hip-hop artist Andy Mineo, who scores his first top 10 with the bow of Uncomfortable at No. 10 (35,000 units; 32,000 in pure album sales — his best sales week ever). Mineo also enters at No. 1 on the Top Christian Albums chart and at No. 3 on the Rap Albums chart.

Drake and Future's Surprise Album Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart
By Keith Caulfield | September 27, 2015 5:11 PM EDT

Drake and Future’s surprise album What a Time to Be Alive charges in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, giving Drake his second chart-topper of 2015. The set earned 375,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 24, according to Nielsen Music — of that sum, 334,000 were pure album sales.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Oct. 10-dated chart (where Drake and Future are No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Sept. 29.

What a Time to Be Alive was released Sunday, Sept. 20 (through A-1/Freebandz/Young Money/Cash Money/Epic/Republic Records), and was initially exclusively available through Apple Music and the iTunes Store. The set was only announced one day earlier, and its release came on an off-cycle Sunday (as most albums are now released on a Friday each week, the first day of the Billboard 200's tracking week).

Let’s take a look at some of the statistics that accompany Drake and Future’s debut:

Third-Largest Week for an Album in 2015, by Units: The only larger weeks were racked by the debuts of The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness (412,000) and Drake’s other surprise album, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (535,000).

Second Largest Sales Week for an Album in 2015: What a Time to Be Alive sold 334,000 in pure album sales, making it the second-biggest sales week this year. The only larger week was racked by Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (495,000).

Drake and Future Are the First Hip-Hop Acts Since 2004 to Score Two No. 1 Albums in a Calendar Year: With the arrival of What a Time to Be Alive, both Drake and Future tally their second leaders on the Billboard 200 in 2015.

Drake debuted at No. 1 earlier in 2015 with If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. Future scored his first No. 1 nearly two months ago with DS2.

The last hip-hop act to earn multiple No. 1s within a calendar year was Jay Z back in 2004. He reached the top that year with Unfinished Business (with R. Kelly) and MTV Ultimate Mash-Ups Presents: Collision Course (with Linkin Park). The last act, regardless of genre, to notch more than one No. 1 album in a calendar year was Justin Timberlake, who saw both volumes of his The 20/20 Experience debut at No. 1 in 2013.

Drake and Future are also the first hip-hop acts to collect multiple No. 1 albums within a 12-month span of time since 2011, when Lil Wayne managed the feat with Tha Carter IV and I Am Not a Human Being.

Drake and Future are members of an elite group of acts to have more than one No. 1 album in a 12-month frame. They are the first to do so since One Direction in late 2014, when Four’s chart-topping arrival came less than a year after Midnight Memories bowed at No. 1.

What a Time… is Drake’s Fifth No. 1 Album: Drake has collected five straight No. 1s on the Billboard 200, all of which debuted at No. 1. It follows If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, Nothing Was the Same (in 2013), Take Care (2011) and Thank Me Later (2010).

Future’s Second No. 1 in Less Than Two Months: Less than two months after Future earned his first No. 1, with DS2, he’s back on top with What a Time to Be Alive.

Drake and Future lead a busy top 10 on the Billboard 200, where six more albums arrive in the region, including new efforts from Lana Del Rey, Mac Miller and David Gilmour.
