Travis Scott’s ‘Utopia’ Remains in No. 1 Spot for Second Week
Per Billboard, the long-teased Astroworld follow-up is the No. 1 album in the country for a second week in a row. For the week ending Aug. 10, Utopia recorded 140,000 equivalent album units, enough for a second week atop the Billboard 200 chart.
Notably, Utopia‘s second week at No. 1 marks the first time a rap release’s first two weeks were spent in the top spot since Drake’s Certified Lover Boy did the same back in 2021. Upon its release in July, Utopia became the second hip-hop album to hit No. 1 this year, preceded one month earlier by Lil Uzi Vert’s Pink Tape.
The Utopia experience, already bolstered by the theatrical release of Scott’s Circus Maximus film, will soon be further expanded with the announcement of dates for a new tour. While specific details hadn’t been publicly announced at the time of this writing, Scott did recently tease that something was imminent with the unveiling of official tour art.
Not unlike its predecessor Astroworld, a good chunk of the ongoing coverage surrounding Utopia has focused on a surprise Drake collaboration. The track, titled “Meltdown,” sees Drake pondering the melting down of some key jewelry pieces as the latest update to his and Pusha T’s saga.
