Billboard 200: Summer Walker Debuts at #1 Thanks to Historic Streaming Numbers

Published: Monday 15th Nov 2021 by Rashad

Summer Walker waves the flag for R&B with the chart debut of her highly anticipated sophomore album, ‘Still Over It.’

The conceptual sequel to the R&B diva’s 2019 debut album, ‘Over It,’ the November 5-released, 20-song set featured SZA, Cardi B, Ciara, and many more and was not only greeted with massive critical acclaim but showed early signs of delivering some of the year’s biggest first-week sales numbers (as we reported here).

Ultimately bowing at #1 on the refreshed Billboard 200, look inside to see how her final figures stacked up against industry analyst predictions.

Summer Walker’s ‘Still Over It’ 

First Week Sales (SPS):  166,000 units

First Week Sales (Pure): 12,000 units

Billboard 200 Debut:  #1

Though not quite reaching the 185,000-210,000 sales benchmark predicted, the 166,000 units secured were enough to land Walker her first #1 hit on the Billboard 200.
The first R&B album by a woman to debut atop the Billboard 200 since Solange’s 2016 set ‘Seat at the Table,’ the chart domination of ‘Still’ was primarily powered by the collective 201.1 million on-demand streams of its tracks.  As a result, it earned the largest streaming week in history by a female R&B album.

    Summer Walker just starting her career and already getting #1 albums. Camicky is on her 3rd 💀

    This era has already been outshined by Normani, Chloe, and Summer Walker. Black Girls Run It 🤩
