Logic edged out Chris Stapleton in the top spot to land Everybody and scored his first Billboard 200 Number One record.

 

Everybody ended with 247,000 copies, 196,000 that are from traditional record sales to stop┬áKendrick Lamar’s three-week run.

 

Stapleton’s From A Room:Volume 1, despite selling the most records, volume 1 had to settle: The country star’s Traveller follow up sold 219,000 absolute copies, but 202,000 of were from conventional records sales, 6,000 more than Logic. On the other hand, the rapper chalked up an added 50,000 in sales from streaming equivalent albums (SEAs) and track equivalent albums (TEAs)

 

Nevertheless, Stapleton created his bestselling week as From A Room: Volume 1 outsold the 153,000 copies Traveller sold in the week following Stapleton’s dominating 2015 CMA Awards. From A Room: Volume 1 also had the bestselling week with a country LP since Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights back in August 2015.

 

Logic’s time atop the Billboard 200 should be short-lived as Harry Styles is expected to debut his self-titled LP.
