John Mayer is perhaps one more step towards making a down payment on a yacht, thanks to the success of “Sob Rock”, which tops the Rolling Stone charts this week with 101,500 surprisingly robust units. That tally included 56,700 unusually healthy copies moved into pure album sales, suggesting that fans really believed the ’80s-themed album was set, as the retro sticker promised, at “the right price.”
Mayer’s album succeeded not only on the sales front, but with healthy streams. While it didn’t quite hit hip-hop numbers in that particular department, “Sob Rock” still drew 26.9 individual song streams in addition to the 56,700 albums sold and 9,200 downloads from. tracks.
At # 2 on the charts was Pop Smoke’s second posthumous release, “Faith”, with 84,100 album-equivalent units. His streaming numbers were almost four times that of Mayer’s – 100.5 million individual song streams – offset by the fact that album sales, at 3,600, were minimal. The late rapper’s second album (but probably not the last) received a lot of star support, with Dua Lipa, Kanye West, Chris Brown, Future and Pusha T among those making appearances.
The third best debut album of the week came from Clairo, whose “Sling” produced by Jack Antonoff ranked No. 20 with 17,300 album-equivalent units. The young singer’s album sales were 8,900 and her streams for the week were 8.3 million.
