Lil Durk’s The Voice climbs 5-3 on the Billboard 200 with 40,000 equivalent album units earned (down 20%), while Pop Smoke’s former No. 1 Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon rises 6-4 with 38,000 units (down 8%) and Pooh Shiesty’s Shiesty Season falls 4-5 in its second week with 37,000 units (down 40%).
Taylor Swift’s former No. 1 Evermore bumps back into the top 10 with an 11-6 rise (33,000 equivalent album units earned; up 16%). Of that sum, 12,000 are in album sales — up 70%. The album had a robust sales bump thanks to the release of the cassette edition of the album, as well as buzz and promotion generated by Swift’s Feb. 10 announcement that she would be re-recording her chart-topping 2008 Fearless album.
Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia surges back into the top 10 for the first time in 10 months, as the album jumps 21-7 with 32,000 equivalent album units earned (up 58%). Its big gain is owed to the album’s deluxe reissue on Feb. 12 with six additional songs, including its new radio hit “We’re Good.” The cut debuted at No. 31 on the most recently published Pop Airplay chart (dated Feb. 20). Among the other newly added songs are two earlier Pop Airplay hits that didn’t previously have a home on a Dua Lipa album: “Un Dia (One Day),” with J Balvin, Bad Bunny and Tainy, and her featured turn on Miley Cyrus’ “Prisoner.”
Future Nostalgia debuted and peaked at No. 4 on the April 11, 2020-dated chart, and has now spent a total of four weeks in the top 10.
Rounding out the rest of the top 10 on the latest Billboard 200, below The Weeknd’s The Highlights at No. 8, are two former No. 1s: Ariana Grande’s Positions (7-9 with 30,000 equivalent album units earned; down 7%) and Juice WRLD’s Legends Never Die (8-10 with 28,000 units; down 5%).
