Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. rules the Billboard 200 albums chart for a second week, as the set earned 238,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 27, according to Nielsen Music. That’s a decline of 61 percent as compared to its debut frame a week earlier of 603,000 units.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new May 13-dated chart (where DAMN. is No. 1 for a second frame) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, May 2.
