Suicide Squad is killing the charts when it comes to the box office, and it’s killing the charts on Billboard, too. The soundtrack to the film is now atop the Billboard 200 chart for a second consecutive week.
Despite the album’s number one showing, it actually had a massive drop off in terms of sales, as it only moved a total of 93,000 equivalent album units compared to its debut of 182,000. It’s reported that 50,000 of the sales this week came from traditional albums, while the rest stemmed from various streaming outlets.
Regardless, the star-studded tracklisting featuring the likes of Panic! At the Disco, Eminem and Skrillex is holding its own with several individual songs commanding the Billboard Hot 100 chart: Twenty One Pilots’ “Heathens” and Lil Wayne’s “Sucker for Pain” stand at number four and number fifteen on the singles list, respectively.
Suicide Squad landing at number one again gives it the prestigious honor of only being the fourth motion picture soundtrack to spend multiple weeks at the position since 2000, joining Bad Boys II, Frozen, and Guardians of the Galaxy.
The soundtrack’s reign at number one could be coming to an end, however: this week, it’ll be competing with Frank Ocean’s long-awaited full-length and Apple Music exclusive, Blonde.
