Rod Wave Remains atop Billboard with “Nostalgia” Album


Florida-born trap-soul rapper Rod Wave is at No. 1 for a second week on the Billboard chart, following the chart-topping debut of his fifth studio LP “Nostalgia.”

He earned 88,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 28, with a majority of that total coming from the 124 million streams of the set’s 18 songs.

Olivia Rodrigo’s “Guts” trails closely behind with 87,500 units earned, and Morgan Wallen’s “One Thing at a Time” returns to the top 3 at No. 3 with 73,000 units.

Meantime on the singles chart, Doja Cat‘s “Paint The Town Red,” the lead single off her latest LP “Scarlet,” leads the Hot 100 for a second week thanks to its command on radio, while the parent record failed to debut in the top three of the albums chart.

The singles chart remains mostly unchanged from last week: SZA’s “Snooze” is now at No. 2 for a new Hot 100 peak, with 73 million impressions in airplay; Luke Combs’ cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car” is at No. 3; Swift’s “Cruel Summer” is at No. 4; and Zach Bryan’s “I Remember Everything,” featuring Kacey Musgraves, keeps its No. 5 position.
