Drake's More Life spends a second week at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, as its position continues to be driven by streaming numbers. At #2 is Ed Sheeran's latest album ÷. The only new release to debut in the top ten this week comes from Trey Songz with Termaine at #3. The Beauty & The Beast soundtrack is at #4 while Metallica’s Hardwired… To Self-Destruct is back up to #5, thanks to its bundling deal with tickets for the rockers' upcoming stadium tour. The rest of the top ten is rounded out by Bruno Mars (#6), the Moana soundtrack (#7), Rick Ross (#8), Future's eponymous release (#9) and The Weeknd (#10).
