Post Malone’s ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ Debuts at No. 1

Hooray for Hollywood.

Post Malone’s latest album, Hollywood’s Bleeding, opens at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The star-studded set, which features appearances from Travis Scott, Future, and SZA, moved 489,000 equivalent album units in its first week, of which 200,000 were in album sales. That gives Post the second-biggest week of 2019 for any album following the debut week of Taylor Swift’s Lover (867,000).

Additionally, the album’s 17 songs racked up 365.4 million on-demand audio streams in its first week, earning 2019’s biggest streaming week for an album. Ariana Grande previously held the title with Thank U, Next (307.1 million).
