Good for her: Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘SOUR’ tops ‘Billboard’ 200 for fifth time


After spending the past few weeks hovering in the top five, Olivia Rodrigo‘s debut album SOUR has once again claimed the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart. 

The singer’s debut album was boosted by its August 20 vinyl LP release: SOUR sold an additional 133,000 units, with 76,000 consisting of vinyl sales alone.  Billboard says that marks the second-highest sales week for any LP since it began tracking vinyl sales data in 1991. Taylor Swift‘s evermore holds the title, with an impressive 102,000 copies of the vinyl version of the LP flying off the shelves in the first week of June.

SOUR was also streamed 69.82 million times in the past week.  

SOUR, which debuted May 21, has been assisted on the chart by Olivia’s trilogy of hits: “Drivers License,” “Deja Vu” and “good 4 u.”  But most of the album’s other tracks are also charting on the Hot 100 as well.

Currently, “good 4 u” leads the pack in the number-three spot.  “Deja Vu” also clings to the top 10 for another week, currently resting at number nine. “Traitor” and “Favorite Crime” are also charting in the top 100.
