Furious 7 continues to rake in huge bucks at the box office — so far its worldwide take is $803 million, with $255 million of that haul coming from the US alone. Likewise, Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s Furious 7 soundtrack cut “See You Again” has been tops on iTunes since the movie’s April 3 release, a fact that’s finally propelled the song’s parent album to the peak position on the Billboard 200 this week.

The Furious 7 soundtrack moved 111,000 album units last week, leaving pop-punk quartet All Time Low to debut at #2 with their sixth album, Future Hearts  (80,000 units).

Other than that, all is relatively quiet in the rest of the Top 10 this time around, with the rest of the upper tier of the chart being made up of the usual suspects.

The Top 10 of the Billboard 200:

1. Soundtrack, Furious 7 *1 week*
2. All Time Low, Future Hearts *new*
3. Soundtrack, Fifty Shades Of Grey
4. Maroon 5, V
5. Taylor Swift, 1989
6. Sam Smith, In The Lonely Hour
7. Kendrick Lamar, To Pimp A Butterfly
