Travis Scott Tops Album Chart With ‘Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight’

Travis Scott‘s sophomore album Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight has landed him at the top of the Billboard 200 for the very first time. Chalk it up to that Cassie feature?

Released so far exclusively through Apple Music and iTunes, Scott’s follow-up to 2015 debut Rodeo moved a total off 88,000 equivalent album units in week one, with 53,000 of those being traditional sales. That, apparently, was enough to bump Barbra Streisand‘s Encore down after a solitary week in the #1 spot.

Curiously, Britney SpearsGlory, which debuted at #3 last week, appears to have plunged out of the Top 10 altogether.

The Top 10 of the Billboard 200:

1. Travis Scott, Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight *new* *1 week* 
2. A Day To Remember, Bad Vibrations *new*
3. Drake, Views
4. Soundtrack, Suicide Squad
5. Florida Georgia Line, Dig Your Roots
6. Barbra Streisand, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway
