Pop Smoke makes a historical debut as Shoot For the Stars Aim For The Moon lands at No. 1 on this week’s Billboard 200, accumulating a total of 251,000 equivalent album units, including 190,000 streaming equivalent album units, 59,000 in album sales and 3,000 in track equivalent album units.

At No. 2 is the original Broadway cast recording of Hamilton: An American Musical, followed by Lil Baby and DaBaby at Nos. 3 and 4. Comprising the bottom half of this week’s top 10 are Post Malone, The Weeknd and Harry Styles at Nos. 5, 6 and 7 respectively, with Polo G, Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Durk closing out at Nos. 8, 9 and 10.
