Astroworld demands all the respect Travis Scott deserves.
The newest album from the Houston rapper has just dethroned Drake’s five-week charting topping Scorpion album, racking in more than 537,000 equivalent album units for its debut. According to Billboard and Nielsen Music, 270,000 of those units are traditional album sales, earning Scott with his second number one album and the second-biggest sales week of 2018.
