Chris Brown copped his third No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as his new effort Indigo launches atop the list with 108,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending July 4, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 28,000 were in album sales.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
Indigo’s first week was supported largely by streaming activity, as the set tallied 76,000 SEA units, which equates to 97.95 million on-demand audio streams for the set’s lengthy track list of 32 songs. It’s no surprise that Indigo was also the most-streamed album of the week in terms of total on-demand audio streams earned for its tunes. Comparably, the album with the second-most streams in the tracking week, Lil Nas X’s 7, tallied 74.8 million on-demand audio streams from seven songs.
