A familiar face is back at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated June 24), as Morgan Wallen’s One Thing at a Time climbs 2-1 to collect its 13th nonconsecutive week atop the list. The set earned 111,500 equivalent album units in the United States in the week ending June 15 (down 4%), according to Luminate.
One Thing at a Time ties with three other albums for the most weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the last 10 years. It matches the total weeks at No. 1 of Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti (in 2022), Drake’s Views (2016), and the Frozen soundtrack (2014). The last album to have more than 13 weeks at No. 1 was Adele’s 21, with 24 nonconsecutive weeks in 2011-12.
One Thing at a Time also ties Views to become Republic Records’ album with the most weeks at No. 1 ever on the Billboard 200. One Thing was released via Big Loud/Mercury/Republic, while Views was issued through Young Money/Cash Money/Republic.
Also in the top 10 of the new Billboard 200 albums chart, Niall Horan claims his highest-charting album since 2017 as The Show starts at No. 2, while Noah Kahan’s Stick Season surges into the top 10 for the first time (jumping 100-3) after its deluxe reissue and debut on vinyl.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units, compiled by Luminate. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new June 24, 2023-dated chart will be posted in full on Billboard‘s website on Wednesday (June 21), one day later than usual, owed to the Juneteenth holiday in the U.S. on June 19.
