Punk is No. 1.

Young Thug earns his third No. 1 album as Punk debuts atop the Billboard 200. The 20-track set, which features Drake, J. Cole, Doja Cat, Future, and Mac Miller, opens with 90,000 equivalent album units, of which 12,000 units are comprised of album sales.

The Atlanta rapper previously topped the chart with his Young Stoner Life compilation Slime Language 2 in April and 2019’s So Much Fun.

Thug dethrones Drake, whose album Certified Lover Boy falls to No. 2 after four nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1. It earned 83,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Oct. 21.

Mac Miller’s Faces mixtape opens at No. 3 with 67,000 equivalent album units. The project, which was initially released for free in 2014, marks the seventh top 10 effort for the late rapper.

Elsewhere in the top 10, YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s former No. 1 Sincerely, Kentrell falls 3-6 (44,000), Doja Cat’s Planet Her holds at No. 7 (42,000), and Lil Nas X’s Montero slides 6-10 (36,000).
