There are three big debuts in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 this week. Macklemore is the highest up, with his new album GEMINI coming in at number two with 51k. Following the Seattle native is Kevin Gates with the official debut of By Any Means 2. The album hit the Billboard 200 last week, but it was at number 100 as it was only out for one day of the tracking week. Now with a full 7 days, the album comes in at number 4 with 40k.

Right behind Gates is Jhene Aiko, with her new project Trip coming in at number 5 with 37k. Shout out to Mike Zombie on the “Overstimulated” track!

Looking ahead to next week, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie‘s debut album, The Bigger Artist, is looking at 50-55k. This should put him in the top 10, and possibly even in the top 5! In the meantime, check out this week’s top 10 below.
