Travis Scott’s ‘Utopia’ Holds on to No. 1 Spot on Billboard 200 for a Month
La Flame’s fourth studio album landed at No. 1 for the fourth consecutive week thanks to161,000 equivalent album units sold in the U.S. last week, a 13 percent drop from the previous week.
Utopia has officially surpassed Astroworld with the most weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for Scott. Of Utopia’s 161,000 equivalent album units earned, 92,000 were from album sales, and 69,000 were from SEA units.
The album also got help from a promotional offer on Scott’s official website, which discounted the vinyl version of Utopia from $50 to $5 for a second straight week in a row. Out of the 92,000 albums sold, 89,000 were vinyl sales.
Scott also notched a huge accolade as Utopia became the first rap album in five years to spend its first four weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The last album to do that was Drake’s Scorpion, which spent five consecutive weeks at No. 1 in 2018.
Drake also had the last rap album to clock in five nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 when he dropped Certified Lover Boy in 2021.
Scott also released a 75-minute film titled Circus Maximus to coincide with the release of Utopia. In addition to music from his latest album, the movie features contributions from Harmony Korine, Nicolas Winding Refn, Gaspar Noe, and Kahlil Joseph, who each directed music videos for “Hyaena,” “Sirens,” “Modern Jam,” and “Delresto (Echoes)” featuring Beyoncé—which were also released as individual visuals alongside the full film.
