Last week’s two biggest entries on the Billboard 200, The 1975‘s I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It and Macklemore & Ryan LewisThis Unruly Mess I’ve Made, tumble from their respective #1 and #4 positions and out of the Top 10 entirely — ouch! — making way for Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz in their places.

Kendrick enters at #1 with demo compilation untitled unmastered. one year after capturing the album chart’s top spot with his Grammy-winning third LP, To Pimp a Butterfly. Altogether, untitled unmastered. moved 178,000 album units, 142,000 of which were sales.

2 Chainz goes in at #4 with CollegeGrove (34,000 sales), his collaborative LP with Lil Wayne. To-date, all three of 2 Chainz’s album have landed in the Top 10.

With no really big releases arriving last Friday, we likely won’t see much of a shakeup until Gwen Stefani and Zayn‘s new ones arrive in the coming weeks.

The Top 10 of the Billboard 200:

1. Kendrick Lamar, untitled unmastered. *new* *1 week* 2. Adele, 25 3. Rihanna, ANTI 4. 2 Chainz, CollegeGrove *new* 5. Justin Bieber, Purpose 6. Joey + Rory, Hymns 7. Chris Stapleton, Traveller 8. Twenty One Pilots, Blurryface 9. The Weeknd, Beauty Behind The Madness 10. Kevin Gates, Islah
