Red Hot Chili Pepper’s The Getaway has been critically hailed as one of their best works in years, and listeners seem to agree. Though the album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, The Getaway premiered at No. 1 worldwide for the week ending June 23, selling 108,000 traditional units since its June 17 release.
In the U.S., the alt-rock quartet’s 11th studio album earned 118,000 album equivalent units, and it hit No. 1 in Australia, Belgium, Ireland, the Netherlands, and New Zealand. The Getaway marks the band’s seventh top 10 album and third No. 2 on the Top 200 chart. Their last release, 2011’s I’m With You, led the charts in 18 countries, while Stadium Arcadium (2006) scored the group their first No. 1.
Elsewhere on the chart, Drake’s Views continues its top spot reign for the 8th consecutive week, and Beyoncé’s Lemonade resurfaces at No. 3. The original Broadway cast recording of Hamilton slipped to No. 4, Radiohead’s A Moon Shaped Pool re-entered at No. 5, and YG’s Still Brazy debuted at No. 6.
Rihanna’s Anti, Twenty One Pilots’ Blurry Face, Mumford & Sons’ Johannesburg, and Meghan Trainor’s Thank You round out the top 10 at spots 7, 8, 9, and 10, respectively.
