According to Billboard, Eminem notches his historic 10th No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with his latest release, Music to Be Murdered By.
The set debuts atop the tally with 279,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending Jan. 23, according to Nielsen Music.
Of “Music to Be Murdered By’s” total starting sum of 279,000 units, 154,000 are in SEA (streaming equivalent albums) units, 117,000 are in album sales, and 8,000 are in TEA (track equivalent albums) units.
The 154,000 SEA sum equates to 217.6 million on-demand streams for the album’s tracks. That’s the largest streaming week for an album in four months (even counting just audio streams alone), since Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding tallied 220.9 million clicks in its second week of release (chart dated Sept. 28, 2019).
Record-Extending 10th No. 1 Debut in a Row: Eminem breaks out of a tie with Kanye West for the most No. 1 debuts in a row on the Billboard 200, as Music to Be Murdered By clocks his 10th consecutive chart-topping arrival. West most recently notched his ninth straight No. 1 debut with Jesus Is King in 2019.
