POST MALONE’S beerbongs & bentleys SCORES 2018’S BIGGEST ALBUM DEBUT WITH 461K IN CONSUMPTION SETS MULTIPLE STREAMING RECORDS
History-making multiplatinum Dallas, TX artist Post Malone has achieved “the biggest album debut of 2018” with his second full-length, beerbongs & bentleys [Republic Records]. Marking his first entry atop the respective chart, he captures #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and shatters the “first day and one-week streaming records” on Spotify—U.S. and Global. Total consumption exceeded 461K with 153K traditional sales in under one week.
Meanwhile, he crushed both the U.S. and Global streaming records for “most first-week audio streams,” stirring up 431 million-plus streams stateside and 675 million-plus streams worldwide, eclipsing the previous record of 384 million streams set by Drake’s More Life in 2017. It emerges as “the first album with over 400 million audio streams in a single week.”
Post also notched three songs in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. Additionally, beerbongs & bentleys already received a platinum certification from the RIAA, making it one of only 2 platinum albums released in 2018. Lastly, Stoney returns to the Top 10 making Post “the first artist with two albums in the Billboard Top 200 simultaneously since Linkin Park in August 2017.”
Other number ones include #1 on the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B Albums Chart, #1 on iTunes Overall Top Albums Chart, #1 on iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap Albums Chart, #1 Apple Music Album, #1 Amazon Music Album, and many more.
Moreover, the record is an international juggernaut going number one in 10 countries, including UK, Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and Sweden.
