Travis Scott returns to the top on the Billboard 200 album chart this week. La Flame’s ASTROWORLD, released back in August, landed at No. 1 moving 71,000 equivalent album units (31,000 were in pure album sales) last week, according to Nielsen Music. After spending two consecutive weeks at No. 1 back in August, the project reclaimed that spot thanks to Scott releasing more than two dozen merchandise and album bundle packages for Cyber Monday. Items like keychain, hats, T-shirts, and hoodies sold via his official website that day came with a digital copy of the album. The newly released “SICKO MODE” remix with Skrillex also helped those numbers.

Tekashi 6ix9ine’s DUMMY BOY debuts at No. 2 this week, a major accomplishment considering the 66,000 equivalent album units moved came from only three full days of sales during the tracking week. The project was originally set to drop on Nov. 23 but got delayed due to 6ix9ine’s arrest on federal charges. The album, featuring appearances by Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Lil’ Baby and more, leaked shortly after forcing 6ix9ine to release DUMMY BOY on Nov. 27, just three days before Billboard’s tracking week ended.
