Jay-Z Stays at Number 1 For a Second Week; Linkin Park Returns Three to the Top 50

by VVN Music

Jay-Z holds at number 1 for a second week in the United States with 4:44.

The Billboard 200 albums chart is relatively static this week with only one album by a veteran artist debuting.

The Eagles debut at 180 with their repackaged double album Their Greatest Hits: Volumes 1 & 2 while Volume 1 from that set, the second biggest selling album of all-time, is above it at 169.

Three Linkin Park sets return to the charts after the death of Chester Bennington with their latest, One More Light, coming in at 17.  Also charting are [Hybrid Theory] (2014) at 27 and Meteora (2003) at 42.

On the singles side, Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee with help from Justin Bieber becomes just the 24th album to stay at number 1 for eleven weeks or more.
