The Chart Scoop | P!nk Tops the Billboard 200 with ‘Beautiful Trauma’
What’s the chart scoop? P!nk debuts robustly at no. 1 with ‘Beautiful Trauma,’ while Post Malone keeps the no. 1 spot warm on the Hot 100.
It was inevitable, and it happened. P!nk debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard 200 with her comeback album, Beautiful Trauma. The numbers are superb, as Beautiful Trauma moved 408,000 units, of which more than 94% were album sales! This marks only the second no. 1 album from the veteran pop artist.
P!nk wasn’t the only star on the Billboard 200. Gucci Mane returned with Mr. Davis, starting at no. 2. His numbers weren’t quite in the same league, but 70,000 units in this day and age isn’t bad. Only 30% were album sales though. Beck (Colors) started at no. 3, with 46,000 units, with 89% being album sales. According to Keith Caulfield of Billboard, those numbers a down compared to Morning Phase (2014). St. Vincent sees Masseduction start at no. 10 with 29,000 units (86% album sales).
