Meanwhile, R&B icon Mary J. Blige’s Strength of a Woman enters at No. 3 with 78,000 units (72,000 traditional), earning her 20th placement on the Billboard 200.

Elsewhere on the chart, Drake’s More Life drops 2-4 (68,000), Ed Sheeran’s ÷ falls 3-5 (50,000), Epic Records’ compilation Epic AF debuts at No. 6 (48,000), and Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic slips 5-7 (41,000).
