Wale has kept the trend alive with his fourth studio effort, The Album About Nothing as it has become his second No. 1 album atop the Billboard 200.

Reports Billboard:

The Album About Nothing was released on March 31 through EBM Music/Maybach/Atlantic Records, and tallied 100,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 5 (according to Nielsen Music). The Furious 7 album (on Universal Studios/Atlantic) shifted 74,000 (a gain of 202 percent).

With both The Album About Nothing and Furious 7 at Nos. 1 and 2, Atlantic Records owns the top two slots for the first time since the July 19, 2014-dated chart. That week, Trey Songz’ Trigga (on Songbook/Atlantic) debuted at No. 1, while Ed Sheeran’s x (Atlantic) fell 1-2 in its second week.

Furious 7 just beats out the new album by one of Furious 7’s other co-stars, Ludacris. The hip-hop artist sees his new album Ludaversal bow at No. 3 with 73,000 units. It is his eighth top 10 album, and first full-length release since 2010’s Battle of the Sexes, which debuted at No. 1 with 137,000 units of pure album sales its first week.

Last week’s No. 1, Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly, falls to No. 4 in its third week with 65,000 units (down 47 percent).
