Post Malone’s ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ Nets Third Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart; Zac Brown Band & Blink-182 Debut at Nos. 2 & 3

Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding nets a third straight week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, as it earned 149,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Sept. 26 (down 25%), according to Nielsen Music. The album is the first to spend its first three weeks at No. 1 in nearly a year.

Also in the top 10: Zac Brown Band’s The Owl and Blink-182’s Nine start at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.

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 are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Oct. 5-dated chart, where Hollywood’s Bleeding is steady at No. 1 for a third week, will be posted in full on Billboard‘s websites on Oct. 1.

As Hollywood’s Bleeding has spent its first three chart weeks at No. 1, it’s the first album to do so since Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack also logged its first three frames atop the tally on the charts dated Oct. 20 – Nov. 3, 2018. (It later earned a fourth week at No. 1, on the March 9, 2019 chart.)

Between Star and Bleeding, two albums clocked three frames at No. 1 — just not consecutively from their debut weeks. A Boogie Wit da Hoodie’s Hoodie SZN achieved this (Jan. 19-26 and Feb. 16, 2019), as did Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, with three separate one-week visits to No. 1 (April 13, May 4 and June 8).

Hollywood’s Bleeding matches Post Malone’s three-week run at No. 1 with his other leader, beerbongs & bentleys. It, too, spent its first three weeks in the pole position (May 12-26, 2018).
