Partynextdoor’s Partymobile debuts at 3 and marks the highest-charting album to date from the Canadian hip-hop artist. It surpasses the No. 4 peak of his 2016 release Partynextdoor 3.

The third new entry in the top five this week goes to Pearl Jam’s Gigaton, at 5, scoring the highest album sales for the week. It is their first charting album since 2013’s Lightning Bolt debuted at No. 1.

5 Seconds of Summer’s C A L M jumps 11-7, giving the band its fifth straight top ten album.
