Post Malone’s ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ Spends A Fifth Week At No. 1
Post Malone is officially the king of the Billboard 200 for 2019. His Hollywood’s Bleeding album earned its fifth nonconsecutive week at #1 on the chart.
Hollywood’s Bleeding collected another 78,000 units to move past Kanye West’s Jesus Is King which slipped to #2 (72,000 units). Malone became the first act to hold the No. 1 position for five weeks since Drake’s Scorpion in Summer 2018.
The Texas-bred entertainer has also maintained a presence on the Hot 100 chart. “Sunflower” with Swae Lee (#1), “Wow” (#2), “Goodbyes” featuring Young Thug (#3), and “Circles” (#3) all peaked in the Top 5 in 2019.
According to HitsDailyDouble, Luke Combs’ What You See Is What You Get is expected to pull in 180,000 – 200,000 units to land at #1 next week. However, it is possible Post Malone could return to the pinnacle before the end of the year.
