SZA has owned the top spot on the Billboard 200 for one month. According to Luminate, for the week ending Jan. 5, the R&B star’s SOS album earned 125,000 equivalent album units.
According to Billboard, SOS is the first album by a woman to spend four weeks at No. 1 in a year since Adele’s 30 ruled for six weeks, and it is the first album by a woman to have four consecutive weeks at No. 1 since 30‘s six-week reign. SOS is also the first female R&B album to spend four weeks at No. 1 since Alicia Keys’ As I Am spent a fourth and final nonconsecutive week at the top in February 2008. (Feb. 16, 2008).
SOS achieved 125,000 equivalent album units, SEA units 121,500 (down 4%, equaling 162.42 million official on-demand streaming of the set’s tracks), album sales 3,000 (up 289%), and TEA units 500 (down 7%).
