Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s surprise joint album Everything Is Love is No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, behind Australian pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer’s Youngblood. Everything Is Love moved a total of 123,000 units compared to 142,000 units for Youngblood.
Each of Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s previous solo albums—Lemonade and 4:44—debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Everything Is Love was expected to put up lower numbers in its first week, however, because it was released exclusively via TIDAL on Saturday before later showing up on the subscription tiers of competing streaming services. The album’s comparatively low first week numbers can in part be attributed to a shortened week of availability and streaming service exclusivity.
