Travis Scott built a lot of hype for his latest studio album, and he’s getting credit where credit is due. Utopia became his third No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 and topped the charts all around the world, in addition to making history on the Billboard Hot.
After hitting the shelves on July 28, Utopia did pretty great during its debut week on the Billboard 200, with 496,000 album-equivalent units earned. It scored the second-biggest streaming week and second-largest week in album sales of 2023, in addition to becoming the best-selling R&B/hip-hop vinyl album since Luminate started tracking sales in 1991.
Utopia did pretty great on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with all of its 19 tracks ranking on this summit, bringing Scott’s career total from 93 to 111 Hot 100 hits, making him the 15th artist in history with 100-plus career entries. “Meltdown” ft. Drake and “FE!N,” ft. Playboi Carti made it to the top five this week, while the lead single “K-Pop” ft. Bad Bunny and The Weeknd previously debuted at No. 7.
In addition to topping the US Billboard 200 chart, Utopia soared to No. 1 in several other countries, including Australia and Canada. It also became Scott’s first No. 1 album in the UK and even earned the biggest streaming week for a 2023 album in the country.
