Country star Kenny Chesney’s new album Here and Now topped the Billboard 200 this week. It was Chesney’s ninth #1 album, tying Garth Brooks for the most #1’s ever for a country artist. Here and Now is also the first country album to top the chart since Luke Combs’ What You See Is What You Get did back in November. Meanwhile, Drake’s surprise mixtape Dark Lane Demo Tapes took the #2 spot, which Pitchfork reports has ended his streak of albums debuting at #1. The Toronto rapper had nine consecutive albums debut at #1 starting with 2010’s Thank Me Later, through his 2018 release Scorpion. Lil Baby’s My Turn came in at #3, followed by DaBaby’s Blame It On Baby at #4. Lil Uzi Vert rounded out the top 5 with his Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake.
