Ariana Grande Holds Top Spot on Albums Chart, Kacey Musgraves Nabs Career-High Debut and Justin Timberlake Lands at No. 4

Ariana Grande keeps a strong hold over the Billboard 200 with a second week at No. 1 for her latest LP, “Eternal Sunshine,” which came almost within sight of Kacey Musgraves’ new “Deeper Well” album. Grande extends her run at No. 1 with 100,500 equivalent album units in the United States, and Musgraves debuts at No. 2 with 97,000 equivalent album units earned — her biggest week, by units, to date.

Of Musgraves’ first-week units, traditional album sales comprise 66,000 of that sum thanks to its availability across nine vinyl variants, including eight different-colored versions and limited editions for Amazon, Spotify and Target. “Deeper Well” is also the top-selling vinyl of the year so far (37,000 copies) and the fourth-largest week for a country album on vinyl since Luminate began tracking sales in 1991.

Also new on the Billboard 200 is Justin Timberlake‘s sixth album, “Everything I Thought It Was,” which enters at No. 4 with 67,000 units earned. “Everything I Thought It Was” debuted with 41,000 traditional album sales and 31.13 million official streams of the set’s songs, as measured by Luminate and reported by Billboard.

On the Billboard Hot 100, meanwhile, Teddy Swims scores his first No. 1 single with “Lose Control” hitting the summit in its 32nd week on the chart. Two new variations — a Tiësto remix and a radio edit — arrived in the latest tracking week, adding steam to the song’s climb up to the peak. They joined the previously available versions: a cappella, instrumental, piano and strings versions, plus slowed-down and sped-up mixes and more. “Lose Control” was up 9% in radio airplay, to 60 million impressions, though streaming numbers were down 2% to 23 million streams.

Other highlights on the songs list include the entrance of Cardi B’s “Enough (Miami)” at No. 9, marking her 12th Top 10 song: the single collected nearly 15 million streams and 8.8 million radio audience impressions.

Elsewhere on the singles chart, Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” is at No. 2 while Grande’s “We Can’t Be Friends (Wait for Your Love)” moves down to No. 3 after debuting at the top last week. Jack Harlow’s “Lovin On Me” is at No. 4; Ye (Kanye West) and Ty Dolla $ign’s “Carnival” is at No. 5; Beyoncé’s “Texas Hold ‘Em” is at No. 6; Zach Bryan and Musgraves’ “I Remember Everything” is at No. 7; Tate McRae’s “Greedy” is at No. 8 and Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer” rounds out the Top 10 at No. 10.
