Rihanna’s Anti back at No. 1 on the Billboard 200
Rihanna is back at the top of the charts.
After the singer’s newest album hit first place on the Billboard 200 chart back in February, Anti is back at No. 1. According to Billboard, Anti sold another 54,000 equivalent album units for the week ending March 17, topping the charts for the second week.
Anti is Rihanna’s second album ever to hit No. 1 (after Unapologetic in 2012) and her first album to spend two weeks at the top of the charts. All eight of her studio albums have charted in the top 10.
Only 17,000 of Anti’s total units came from pure album sales this week, and much of Anti’s chart success came from the popularity of individual hits like “Work,” which has held first place on the Billboard Hot 100 for the last four weeks.
Adele’s 25 once again took second place with 51,000 units sold, while last week’s chart-topper, Kendrick Lamar’s Untitled Unmastered, dropped to fifth place with 38,000 units.
Rihanna celebrated Anti’s return to first place on Twitter, writing, “Too trippy!!! Thanks Navy.”
