Travis Scott returns to the top of the Billboard 200 charts with his latest album, Utopia, and secures the third-biggest week of 2023 for any album and the largest for any R&B/hip-hop or rap release.

Billboard reports, Utopia earned 496,000,000 equivalent album units with 252,000 in album sales in its first week. 243,000 of its SEA units equaled to 330.68 million on-demand streams of its 19 tracks. Every song has charted on the Billboard Top 100 charts and has locked in over 650 million streams worldwide. Travis also becomes the 15th artist in Billboard history to chart at least 100 career Hot 100 hits with a total of 111.

Utopia marks the Houston rapper’s third solo chart-topping album. He first scored his No. 1 album back in 2016 with his sophomore album, Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight and again in 2018 with his third album, AstroWorld. It is his fourth No. 1 overall which includes his supergroup Jackboys self-titled compilation album, Jackboys.

Utopia becomes the second hip-hop album this year to top the charts following Lil Uzi Vert’s Pink Tape last month. The album features the lead single “K-Pop” featuring The Weeknd and Bad Bunny, “God’s Country“, as well as other appearances by Beyonce, Drake, Future, SZA, Young Thug, 21 Savage, Westside Gunn, and more.

On Monday (Aug. 7), Travis performed at a sold-out Circus Maximus in Rome Italy, which sold over 60,000 tickets in just two days. During his epic performance, he brought out Kanye West.
