Rare has earned Selena Gomez her third No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. 

The album which was released January 10 via Interscope Records has topped albums chart this week, to the tune of 112,000 equivalent album units earned in the US according to Nielsen Music.

Rare, which is Gomez’s sixth top 10 album on the Billboard 200 in total, was not bolstered by album sales generated from a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer. 

Coming in at No. 2 is Roddy Ricch’s Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, which just fell short with 110,000 equivalent album units earned. 

The forecast, however, for next week looks much more competitive with albums from Eminem, Mac Miller, and Halsey all vying for the top spot.
