RS Charts: 21 Savage, Metro Boomin's 'Savage Mode II' Repeats at Number One

21 Savage and Metro Boomin’s Savage Mode II spent a second week at Number One on the Rolling Stone Top 200 Albums chart. The album amassed 81.6 million streams and 1,400 downloads, just enough to beat out Pop Smoke’s posthumous release Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon, which racked up 85.7 million streams but less than 700 downloads. 

As Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” surged to Number Three on the RS 100 thanks to a viral wave of interest that started on TikTok, the album which includes the track, 1977’s Rumours, climbed from Number 15 to Number Nine. Rumours is already one of the most popular albums of all time — it’s been certified a whopping 20 times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. It was downloaded an additional 3,400 times last week, and it also earned 26.7 million streams.

As fans rediscovered “Dreams,” other Fleetwood Mac releases also saw an uptick in listening: The group’s self-titled 1975 album moved up from Number 58 to Number 44 thanks to 14.3 million streams and more than 10,000 song downloads.

The Rolling Stone 200 Albums chart tracks the most popular releases of the week in the United States. Entries are ranked by album units, a number that combines digital and physical album sales, digital song sales, and audio streams using a custom weighting system. The chart does not include passive listening such as terrestrial radio or digital radio. The Rolling Stone 200 Albums chart is updated daily, and each week Rolling Stone finalizes and publishes an official version of the chart, covering the seven-day period ending with the previous Thursday.

Rumours ended up being more popular than any new album that debuted on the RS 200 last week. The biggest debut belonged to Trey Songz, who landed at Number 14 with Back Home, which sold 5,200 copies and amassed 21.2 million streams. Skeleton, the new release from the country duo the Brothers Osborne, arrived at Number 42 thanks to 7,2000 sales and 6.2 million streams. 

Listeners continued to flock to old Van Halen albums in the weeks following the death of guitarist Eddie Van Halen. Van Halen fell from Number 33 to Number 53, but still earned more than 8.3 million streams, while 1984 was not far behind at Number 61, with 8.2 million streams.
