Big Sean dethrones Migos as the chart king.

A new #1 album is here this week: Big Sean's I Decided. The Detroit MC dethroned the Migos, who spent only one week at the top of the charts. The Weeknd, Bruno Mars and Post Malone each have an album in the top 10, Lady Gaga has two following her Super Bowl performance. Elsewhere on the chart, Sampha's Process debuts at #51 and Syd's Fin debuts at #71.

***

1) Big Sean — I Decided.: Coming in at #1 is Big Sean with his fourth studio album I Decided. With production by DJ Mustard, WondaGurl, and Metro Boomin, and features from Eminem, Jeremih, and Migos, the record moves 150,818 TAEU (total album equivalent units) and 64,978 in sales.

2) Migos — Culture: After debuting at #1, this Atlanta trio bumps back to #3 with Culture, their second studio album. Using the success of "Bad and Boujee" as the launch pad, the record has clocked 68,476 TAEU and 7,482 sales in its second week on the charts.

3) The Weeknd — StarboyStarboy spent some time at #1 before getting nudged back over the past couple weeks. With 47,148 TAEU and 9,626 sales, Abel Tesfaye celebrates his 11th week on the charts at #5.

4) Bruno Mars — 24K Magic: In the same #7 spot as last week is Bruno Mars with 24K Magic. The pop record tallies 31,579 TAEU and 15,249 sales as it hits the dozen-week mark on the charts.

5) Post Malone — Stoney: Also in the same position as last week is Post Malone, who comes in at #9 with Stoney. This is his first studio album, which clocks 27,390 TAEU and 2,894 sales during this sale cycle. 

6) Drake – VIEWS: Bumped back from #13 is Drake with VIEWS. The album spent much of last year at #1, and still proves it has wheels as it does 24,795 TAEU and 3,948 sales during its 41st week on the charts.  

7) Kehlani — SweetSexySavage: Kehlani's SweetSexySavage debuted at #3 last week, but took a pretty hard hit back to the #17 spot. The singer counts 23,058 TAEU and 6,228 sales in its second week on the charts. 

8) Rihanna — ANTI: At #20 is Rihanna's eighth studio album ANTI. Following its position at #17 last week, the album slings 20,264 TAEU and 3,354 sales as it hits 55 weeks on the charts, just one week shy of a full year.

9) J. Cole — 4 Your Eyez Only: J. Cole released his fourth studio album nine weeks ago, and after debuting at #1, the album has since dropped to #23, where it is this week. 4 Your Eyez Only has 18,983 TAEU and 5,229 sales to its name this week.

10) Travis Scott — Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight: Travis Scott's second full-length falls into the #26 spot this week, down six spots from the #20 position of last week. With 16,642 TAEU and 1,436 sales, the record is still putting some solid numbers on the board. 

***

As Big Sean claimed the #1 album in the country, his single "Bounce Back" rose from #15 to #6 on the singles chart. It is now Sean's highest-charting single ever. Ed Sheeran's "Shape Of You" is the #1 single in the country, followed by Migos' "Bad & Boujee." Drake's "Fake Love" and The Weeknd's "Starboy" both got pushed out of the top 10 this week, and The Weeknd's other top 20 single "I Feel It Coming" is stuck at #16 where it was last week despite surging in weeks prior. Big Sean also has a new one at #22, "No Favors" featuring Eminem. He has 8 songs total in the top 100. XXXTENTACION's "Look At Me" (#95) vaults into the Hot 100 for the first time.
