That week, Drake Scorpion (Young Money / Cash Money / Republic) debuted at No.1, while Florence + the Machine’s As high as hope (Republic) debuted at No.2, and Post Malone’s Beerbongs et Bentleys (Republic) held at No. 3.The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the United States based on multi-metric consumption measured in equivalent album units.
