Drake's Scorpion opened in the top spot with 732,000 equivalent album units. The Toronto-raised entertainer also moves into second place with Ye and Em on the list of most #1 albums for a Hip Hop act, trailing Jay-Z's 14 chart toppers.

Additionally, Drake had the biggest opening sales week of 2018. Scorpion also became the first project to collect 1 billion on-demand global streams in a single week.
