“SOS” achieved 87,000 equivalent album units based on its combined record sales, individual track sales, and online streams. That’s down just seven-percent week to week. It’s now one of just eight albums since 2010 to spend 10 weeks or more on top. And it’s the first R&B album since the “Bodyguard” soundtrack (1992-1993) to do so. That number was enough to keep “Trustfall” down at number-two. That new album launched with 74,500 album units, most of which came from traditional album sales. It’s Pink’s ninth album to chart in the top 10. Rounding out the top five are familiar faces: Taylor Swift (“Midnights“) at number-three, Metro Boomin (“Heroes and Villains“) at number-four, and Morgan Wallen (“Dangerous”) at number-five.
