Travis Scott’s new record Astroworld is now the No. 1 album, Billboard reports. He’s dethroned Drake’s five-week run atop the Billboard 200 albums chart with the record-breaking Scorpion. It was the second-largest opening week for an album this year after Scorpion, moving 537,000 units (270,000 in traditional album sales).

Astroworld was released last week. Along with Drake on “Sicko Mode,” the LP feautres frank Ocean, Stevie Wonder, James Blake, Pharrell Williams, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, Swae Lee, and many others. The same day that Astroworld dropped, Scott shared three non-album singles. He recently unleashed the hectic “Stop Trying to Be God” video.
