A handful of beloved releases reach special milestones on this week’s Billboard 200 albums chart, with some of the biggest names in hip-hop, rock, country and the alternative spaces all represented.
Here are five albums that made big moves on the Billboard 200 chart this week.
No. 48 – Post Malone – Beerbongs & Bentleys
More often than not, all three of Post Malone’s full-lengths find space on the Billboard 200, and they usually live inside the upper half of the competitive tally. This frame, his sophomore set Beerbongs & Bentleys reaches three full years on the list, or exactly 156 weeks.
Beerbongs & Bentleys turned Malone from a hot talent to a certified hitmaker and one of the biggest musicians on the planet. The set produced a pair of Hot 100 No. 1 smashes in “Rockstar” with 21 Savage and “Psycho” with Ty Dolla $ign. Additional hits like “Better Now,” “Ball For Me” with Nicki Minaj and “Paranoid” were also huge, and the project likely racks up millions of streams every week.
No. 51 – Creedence Clearwater Revival – Chronicle: The 20 Greatest Hits
The latest addition to the decade club is Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Chronicle: The 20 Greatest Hits, which makes it to 520 weeks on the Billboard 200 this frame. The rock band’s greatest hits compilation narrowly misses out on landing inside the upper quarter of the tally as it becomes the eighth title in U.S. history to live on the roster for a solid 10 years.
No. 141 – Imagine Dragons – Evolve
Just a few weeks ago, Imagine Dragons returned from a short break with two new singles, “Follow You” and “Cutthroat,” which appear to serve as the first tastes from their upcoming release, which doesn’t yet have a release date or a title. As fans wait patiently for more music or even little bits of info, the group’s Evolve, perhaps their most successful in terms of singles, reaches 200 weeks on the Billboard 200.
Evolve might have stalled at No. 2 on the all-genre chart, but it did produce three of their biggest smashes in “Believer,” “Thunder” and “Whatever It Takes,” with the first two breaking into the top 10 on the Hot 100.
No. 143 – Twenty One Pilots – Blurryface
As they get ready to deliver their next full-length Scaled and Icy in less than a month, the album that turned Twenty One Pilots from alternative favorites to proper hitmakers keeps going, racking up enough streams and sales every week to live on the Billboard 200.
The duo’s Blurryface, which became their first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 back in 2015, has now spent an incredible 300 weeks on the chart, and it’s sure to add to that sum.
No. 185 – Blake Shelton – Reloaded: 20 #1 Hits
Close to the bottom of the Billboard 200 is Blake Shelton’s Reloaded: 20 #1 Hits, an obviously-titled collection of many of his most successful singles. The set has now been present on the chart for 200 weeks, proving the country star’s popularity once again.
