Beyoncé’s Lemonade is back in the spotlight. Three years after its release, Lemonade has re-entered the Billboard 200 and cracked the Top 10 in doing so. Meanwhile, the music superstar’s Homecoming: The Live Album has ascended to the Top 5.

Elsewhere, Lizzo’s Cuz I Love You debuts at No. 6 and joins a Top 10 that includes the late Nipsey Hussle, Juice WRLD and Post Malone.

Further down the chart, Tech N9ne’s N9NA comes in at No. 34 and Anderson .Paak’s Ventura plummets from No. 4 to No. 80. Wiz Khalifa’s Fly Times Vol. 1: The Good Fly Young (No. 70) and Shy Glizzy’s Covered N Blood (No. 156) also make their respective debuts this week.

Beyoncé Takes Over The Top 10

Billie Eilish has claimed the top spot on this week’s Billboard 200, but Beyoncé has the largest presence on the chart with two entries in the Top 10. The recently released Homecoming: The Live Album jumps from No. 7 to No. 4 after moving 55,639 total album equivalent units. While it’s the second charting week for the LP, it’s the first to have a full seven days counted since Homecoming’s surprise release previously allowed only two days of tracking activity.

Beyoncé’s release of Lemonade, which had previously been a TIDAL exclusive, on Spotify and Apple Music has also increased access to the critically acclaimed album. The 2016 LP returns to the chart at No. 9 with 29,768 units sold. 2008’s I Am…Sasha Fierce (No. 170) and 2013’s self-titled Beyoncé (No. 176) also re-enter the Billboard 200 thanks to a boost from Homecoming.

Lizzo Hits Career Milestone

Lizzo’s major label debut Cuz I Love You has earned her the first Top 10 album of her career. The Atlantic Records artist’s third studio LP reaches No. 6 by racking up 40,716 units for the week.

More than half of Lizzo’s total units came from pure album sales with 24,244 copies sold. The sales are impressive since the lead singles haven’t even charted on the Hot 100.

Anderson .Paak’s Ventura has descended down the Billboard 200 in its second week on the chart. After debuting at No. 4, the Aftermath artist’s latest work has fallen to No. 80.

Ventura sold 55,146 units in its initial week, but interest in the album has dried up for some reason. The project has only moved 9,825 units following its big debut.
