The 28-year-old singer’s new album No. 6 Collaborations Project has debuted in the top spot on the Billboard 200 album chart.
The new album moved 173,000 equivalent album units, making it the largest week of the year for a pop album by a male artist. It also marks the biggest week in total album sales by a solo male artist since Shawn Mendes‘ self titled album in June 2018.
Ed knocked J. Cole‘s Revenge of the Dreamers III album from number one to number three, with Billie Eilish‘s When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? staying put at number two.
Rounding out the top five are Lil Nas X’s 7 at number four and Chris Brown at five with Indigo.
