The album earned 169,999 equivalent album units, with 68,000 of those being traditional album sales.

The Weeknd previously hit No. 1 with 2016′s Starboy and 2015′s Beauty Behind The Madness.

The album also logged the largest week for a R&B album in over a year – when The Weeknd‘s own Starboy debuted with 209,000 units. It’s also the highest sales week for an R&B album in nearly a year, following Mary J. Blige‘s Strength of a Woman, which pushed 72,000 copies back in May of 2017.

It’s also the shortest album, based on track count, to hit No. 1 in nearly eight years since Glee: The Music, Journey to Regionals in 2010!
