Bad Bunny returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200

Bad Bunny’s A Summer Without You has returned to the top of the Billboard 200 album chart (dated October 8) for the 12th non-consecutive week. The album rose from No. 2 to No. 1, with 87,000 album-equivalent units earned in the United States in the week ending September 29, according to Luminate. The last album with the most weeks at No. 1 was Drake’s Views, which spent 13 non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 in 2016.

Also in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200, 5 Seconds of Summer’s new 5SOS5 reaches No. 2, while Alice in Chains’ Dirt re-enters the chart at No. 9 after being re-released on their 30th anniversary.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the week’s most popular albums in the United States, based on consumption across multiple platforms and formats, measured in album-equivalent units, according to Luminate. Units comprise album sales, Track Equivalent Albums (TEA) consumption, and Streaming Equivalent Albums (SEA). Each unit is equal to the sale of one album, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 audio and video streams (ad-supported) or 1,250 paid/subscription streams generated by songs from an album. The new chart dated October 8 will be released in its entirety on Billboard’s website on Tuesday (October 4). For all chart news, follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on Twitter and Instagram.

Of the 87,000 album-equivalent units earned by A Summer Without You, SEA units comprise 85,000 (down 6%, equaling 119.8 million official on-demand streams of the set’s tracks), album sales comprise 2,000 (down 16%) and TEA units comprise less than 1,000 (down 19%).

5 Seconds of Summer land their sixth album in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 with 5SOS5 debuting at No. 2 earning 48,000 album-equivalent units. Of that sum, album sales comprise 36,000, SEA units comprise 12,000 (equivalent to 15.82 million official on-demand streams of the set’s songs), and TEA units comprise a paltry number. Six of the band’s top 10 albums have cracked the top two on the list, with three reaching No. 1.
