AceShowbiz - The soundtrack album to "A Star Is Born" spends a second week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 chart this week. The effort sold an additional 143,000 equivalent album units, including 86,000 in traditional album sales, in the week ending October 18, according to Nielsen Music.
With the recent achievement, the set has become the third soundtrack album to spend multiple weeks at No. 1 in 2018. It follows "The Greatest Showman" soundtrack album, which spent two weeks atop the chart in January, and "Black Panther" soundtrack album, which topped the chart thrice in March.
Despite its first full tracking week of activity, Quavo's debut solo album "Quavo Huncho" fails to dethrone the soundtrack to the Bradley Cooper-starring flick. It zooms to No. 2, earning him his first top 10 album as a solo artist. The album technically made its debut on the chart last week at No. 66 after it garnered a partial day of activity due to an earlier release on Thursday, October 11, which marked the end of tracking weeks.
Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter V" stays at No, 3 with 85,000 units. Lil Baby and Gunna's joint album "Drip Harder" also holds steady at No. 4 with 71,000 units. Meanwhile, new arrival, Ella Mai's self-titled debut album bows at No. 5 with 69,000 units.
Drake's record-breaking and former chart-topping album "Scorpion" blasts to No. 6 with 55,000 units, followed by Twenty One Pilots' "Trench" at No. 7. The latter set slips down five spots in its second week with 49.000 units. Travis Scott (II)'s "Astroworld" climbs to No. 8 with 47,000 units. Other titles making up this week's top 10 are Post Malone's "Beerbongs & Bentleys" which rises to No. 9 with 44,000 units and Eminem's "Kamikaze" which returns to the top 10 with 35,000 units.
