Ariana Grande holds the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s album chart this week with “Everlasting Sunshine,” beating out new releases by Kacey Musgraves and Justin Timberlake.

“Everlasting Sunshine,” Grande’s first new studio album in nearly 4 years, stays on the high for a second time with the equal of simply over 100,000 gross sales in the US, together with 115 million streams and 13,000 copies offered as a whole bundle, in response to the monitoring service Luminate.

Grande’s whole was down 56 % from its opening week, giving it sufficient — by a skinny margin — to succeed over Musgraves’s “Deeper Nicely,” which began with the equal of 97,000. “Deeper Nicely,” Musgraves’s second LP since successful album of the yr on the Grammys in 2019 with “Golden Hour,” begins at No. 2 with 38 million streams and 66,000 copies offered. These gross sales included 37,000 copies of the album’s 9 vinyl editions — amongst them an image disc displaying cardinals in a tree and one other that includes “scented sleeves.”

“Every little thing I Thought It Was,” Timberlake’s first new album since “Man of the Woods” six years in the past, opens in fourth place with the equal of 67,000 gross sales. It’s Timberlake’s first solo studio album to not make it to No. 1 since “Justified,” which went to second place in 2002.

Additionally this week, Morgan Wallen’s “One Factor at a Time” is No. 3 and Noah Kahan’s “Stick Season” is No. 5.
