SZA can now call herself a history maker due to her new album SOS spending its third consecutive week atop the Billboard 200 chart. In its third week, the album has earned a total of 128,000 equivalent album units, with 126,500 credited to streaming equivalent album units (168.73 million on-demand official streams of the tracks), 1,000 in album sales and 500 in track equivalent album units. SOS has become first album by woman to spend three weeks at No. 1 the chart since Beyoncé’s eponymous LP in 2013.
