21 Savage’s ‘American Dream’ Spends Second Week Atop Billboard 200

21 Savage’s American Dream holds steady at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart for a second week (on the chart dated Feb. 3), following its debut atop the tally a week ago. It earned 78,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Jan. 25 (down 40%), according to Luminate, down from the 133,000 it earned in its opening frame.

With a second week at No. 1, American Dream matches the two-week No. 1 run of the rapper’s I Am > I Was, in 2019, tying for 21 Savage’s most weeks at No. 1 among his four leaders. His two other No. 1s — his collaborative sets Savage Mode II (with Metro Boomin) and Her Loss (with Drake) — each spent one week at the summit.

Also in the top 10 of the new Billboard 200, Green Day lands its 12th top 10-charting set, as its latest studio album, Saviors, debuts at No. 4. Its arrival comes two weeks before the band celebrates its 30th anniversary on Billboard’s charts. The trio premiered on Billboard’s tallies dated Feb. 19, 1994, when its Dookie album launched on the Billboard 200, among other lists.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units, compiled by Luminate. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new Feb. 3, 2024-dated chart will be posted in full on Billboard‘s website on Jan. 30.

Of American Dream’s 78,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Jan. 25, SEA units comprise 77,000 (down 40%, equaling 103.16 million on-demand official streams of the 15 songs on the album), album sales comprise 1,000 (72%), and TEA units comprise a negligible sum (down 56%).

Morgan Wallen’s chart-topping One Thing at a Time rises 3-2 with 63,000 equivalent album units earned (up 4%) and Drake’s former leader For All the Dogs climbs 4-3 with 53,000 units (up 1%).

Green Day’s Saviors starts at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 with 49,000 equivalent album units earned. Of that sum, album sales comprise 39,000 (making it the top-selling album of the week), SEA units comprise 9,500 (equaling 12.25 million official on-demand streams of the album’s 15 songs) and TEA units comprise 500. Saviors is the 12th top 10-charting set for Green Day, stretching back to its first entry on the list, Dookie, which entered the chart at No. 127 on the Feb. 19, 1994-dated list, and peaked at No. 2 on Jan. 28, 1995.

Saviors was led by the single “The American Dream Is Killing Me,” which reached No. 2 on the Alternative Airplay chart, capturing the group its 25th top 10-charting tune on the tally.

Noah Kahan’s Stick Season rises 6-5 on the Billboard 200 with 48,000 equivalent album units earned (up 7%), while the rest of the top 10 comprises former No. 1s. Taylor Swift’s 1989 (Taylor’s Version) dips 5-6 (47,000; down 6%); SZA’s SOS bumps 9-7 (41,000; down less than 1%); Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday 2 falls 7-8 (39,000; down 11%); Zach Bryan’s self-titled album rises 12-9 (38,000; up 4%); and Swift’s Lover is a non-mover at No. 10 (nearly 38,000; down 2%).
