On the latest 200 albums chart (dated Oct. 14), The Killers notch their first No. 1 album, as Wonderful Wonderful debuts atop the list with 118,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Sept. 28, according to Nielsen Music. The No. 1 arrival comes over 13 years after the group debuted on the chart with their first album, Hot Fuss.
The 200 chart ranks the week’s most popular albums based on their overall consumption. That overall unit figure combines pure album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
Now, let’s take a closer look at some of the action on the latest 200 chart:
— Lecrae, All Things Work Together – No. 11 – The rapper notches his seventh top 40-charting album, as All Things Work Together starts at No. 11 with 29,000 units (20,000 in traditional album sales). The two-time Grammy Award winner also bows at No. 8 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and No. 6 on the Rap Albums chart (it’s his seventh consecutive top 10 effort on the latter tally).
