Travis Scott’s latest album “Utopia” is expected to remain the No. 1 album in the United States for a fourth consecutive week. The album released late-July is estimated to sell 160,000 in its fourth week, taking its total to 988,000 units sold since release.
The album will become the second longest No. 1 rap album of the decade, and the longest overall of Scott’s career. His previous album, 2018’s Astroworld spent 3 weeks at No. 1. “UTOPIA” is also on the brink of surpassing 1 billion total streams on Spotify, currently standing at an impressive 963 million streams as at press time.
These figures continues Scott’s record breaking run for UTOPIA. Recently, the album achieved a new milestone by achieving the highest vinyl LP sales for a rap album. Chart Data reported that the album achieved “the biggest vinyl sales week for a rap album in Nielsen history,” with a sale of 93,000 copies, surpassing its own record in the process.
Released on July 28, following years of anticipation, UTOPIA debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 496,000 equivalent units sold. It sustained its momentum with an additional 147,000 units sold in the second week and 185,000 units in the third week.
Impressively, all 19 tracks from the album made their debut on the Hot 100 chart. The highest-charting among them was “Meltdown,” featuring Drake, which reached No. 3. Furthermore, “FE!N” claimed the No. 5 spot, marking Playboi Carti‘s highest-charting song, while “Parasail” (No. 53) provided Dave Chappelle with his inaugural Hot 100 hit.
“UTOPIA” is the third solo album of Travis Scott to achieve the No. 1 position, with his previous album “Astroworld” also accomplishing this feat in 2018. “Astroworld” debuted at No. 1 with 537,000 equivalent units sold in its opening week, including 270,000 pure album sales.
