AceShowbiz - Brockhampton scores their first major milestone when their fourth studio album, "Iridescence", arrives atop Billboard 200 chart. Making its way out via Question Everything/RCA Records, the effort racked up 101,000 equivalent album units in the week ending September 27, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 79,000 were in traditional album sales.
Furthermore, "Iridescence" garnered 28.8 million on-demand audio streams in its first week of release, making it become the thirteenth most-streamed album of the week. Drake's record-breaking album "Scorpion" is topping the stream chart with 81 million on-demand audio streams.
It is rather interesting to see the 14-member self-proclaimed boyband ruling Billboard 200 chart, given the fact that the group has failed to ever bring a song to any of Billboard's song charts in its history. Two of their albums have landed a spot on Billboard 200 chart, with "Saturation II" and "Saturation III" peaking at No. 57 and No. 15 respectively.
Trailing behind Brockhampton, Josh Groban scores his ninth top 10 album as "Bridges" arrives at No. 2 on the chart. The set sold 96,000 units in its first week, including 94,000 in traditional album sales. Eminem's "Kamikaze" climbs down a spot again this week to No. 3 with 65,000 units, while Drake's "Scorpion" holds its No. 4 spot with 63,000 units.
Drake isn't the only hip-hop act who stays steady at his last week's spot. Travis Scott (II)'s "Astroworld" is stationary at No. 5 with 57,000 units, and Post Malone's "Beerbongs & Bentleys" is a non-mover at No. 6 with 45,000 units. Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood's "Cry Pretty" jumps down to No. 7 with 36,000 units in its second week.
Juice WRLD's "Goodbye & Good Riddance" ascends to No. 8 with 35,000 units as Lauren Daigle's "Look Up Child" returns to the top 10 at No. 9 with 34,000 units. It is reported that Selena Gomez helps the album's sales by promoting her music on Instagram Stories. Meanwhile, Ariana Grande closes things out at No. 10 with "Sweetener". The set sold additional 34,000 units.
