Lil Baby’s My Turn returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart after three months, as the set rises from No. 3 with 65,000 equivalent album units earned (up 5 percent) in the U.S. in the week ending June 11, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It’s the second week at No. 1 for the album, following its debut atop the chart dated March 14. The album then spent the next 13 straight weeks lodged in the top six positions of the chart, between the charts dated March 21 and June 13.
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. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new June 20-dated chart (where My Turn comes back to No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard’s website on June 16.
With My Turn collecting 65,000 units for the week at No. 1, it tallies the smallest sum for a No. 1 album in over a year. The last time the No. 1 posted a smaller frame was on the June 8, 2019-dated list, when Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? notched its third and final week atop the list, when it rose from No. 3 to No. 1 with 62,000 units.
My Turn climbs back to No. 1 thanks in part to its steady performance since its debut, and because of a lack of big new albums being released on June 5. How sparse was the June 5 release schedule? No albums debut inside the top 40 of the new chart.
My Turn’s 13-week wait to return to No. 1 marks the longest gap between weeks at No. 1 for an album since Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack took a 17-week hiatus from the top slot between its first three weeks at No. 1 (Oct. 20, Oct. 27 and Nov. 3, 2018) and its fourth and final week at No. 1 (March 9, 2019). The album scored its fourth week at No. 1 in the wake of the film’s showcase on the 2019 Academy Awards, where the soundtrack’s Oscar-winning song “Shallow” was performed by Gaga and Cooper.
Back on the new Billboard 200, Lady Gaga’s Chromatica slips from No. 1 to No. 2 in its second week, with 64,000 equivalent album units (down 77 percent from its opener of 274,000).
Two more former No. 1s follow at Nos. 3 and 4, as Gunna’s Wunna rises 4-3 with a little more than 39,000 equivalent album units (down 20 percent) and Future’s High Off Life climbs 5-4 with 39,000 units (down 11 percent).
Drake’s Dark Lane Demo Tapes shifts 6-5 with nearly 39,000 units (down 6 percent). DaBaby’s former chart-topper Blame It on Baby rises 9-6 with 38,500 equivalent album units (down 1 percent), Polo G’s The Goat is steady at No. 7 with 37,000 (down 10 percent) and Post Malone’s former No. 1 Hollywood’s Bleeding rebounds 12-8 with 36,000 units (up 1 percent).
Two previous leaders close out the new top 10, as Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake ascends 13-9 with just over 35,000 equivalent album units (down less than 1 percent) and The Weeknd’s After Hours is up 11-10 with 35,000 units (down 3 percent).
