Rihanna’s Anti moves back to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, collecting its second week at the top. The diva’s set earned another 54,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 17, according to Nielsen Music.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new April 2-dated chart (where Anti is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, March 22.
Anti is Rihanna’s second No. 1 album (following her previous studio effort,Unapologetic, in 2012) and her first to spend more than one week at No. 1.
Of Anti’s total units for the week, 17,000 were in pure album sales. The rest of its sum — a sizable 69 percent — was comprised of TEA and SEA units, thanks to the popularity of its tracks (like the smash single “Work,” which has spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart)
