Of Voice’s 150,000 equivalent album units earned in the tracking week ending June 10, SEA units comprise 144,000 (equaling 197.71 million on-demand streams of the album’s 18 tracks), album sales comprise slightly more than 4,000 and TEA units comprise a little over 1,000.

Lil Durk is the sixth act to get their first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 in 2021, following Olivia Rodrigo, Moneybagg Yo, Rod Wave, Morgan Wallen and Playboi Carti. (The lattermost debuted at No. 1 on the Jan. 9-dated chart with his Dec. 25, 2020 release, Whole Lotta Red.)

Rodrigo’s former No. 1 Sour is steady at No. 2 for a second week, earning 143,000 equivalent album units (down 23%). Two more former leaders are next, as Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album rises 4-3 with 50,000 units (down 4%) and J. Cole’s The Off-Season dips 3-4 with 44,000 units (down 25%).

South Korean pop quintet Tomorrow x Together notches its first top 10 album on the Billboard 200, as The Chaos Chapter: Freeze debuts at No. 5 with 43,000 equivalent album units earned. Of that sum, album sales comprise 39,000, SEA units comprise 4,000 (equaling 6.42 million on-demand streams of the album’s eight tracks) and TEA units comprise a negligible sum.

A hefty 96% of the album’s sales came from the CD editions, while the remaining 4% were from the digital album.

Tomorrow x Together had previously gone as high as No. 25 with 2020’s Minisode1: Blue Hour (Nov. 21, 2020-dated chart).

Moneybagg Yo’s former No. 1 A Gangsta’s Pain falls 5-6 on the new Billboard 200 with 38,000 equivalent album units earned (down 10%) while Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia slips 6-7 with 35,000 units (though up 2%).
