For the fourth time since its debut back in April, Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. is the No. 1 album in the country.

Surging back on top of the Billboard 200 chart this week, knocking down Arcade Fire's Everything Now from the summit, is Kendrick's latest opus, which finished first with sales of 47,000 units. As Billboard reports, this is the second-lowest haul for a No. 1 slot on the chart since 2014's The Descendants soundtrack.

Last month, DAMN. reached double-platinum status, a sales milestone that is not only a first for the TDE rapper, but also the first and only certification bestowed upon an artist this year (so far).

The rest of the top 10 on this week's chart includes a string of releases that sold within the 20,000-30,000 frame, including DJ Khaled's Grateful at No. 3 (31,000), Meek Mill's Wins & Losses at No. 4 (31,000), 21 Savage's Issa Album at No. 6 (29,000), Ed Sheeran's Divide at 7 (29,000) Imagine Dragons' Evolve at 8 (28,000), SZA's Ctrl at 9 (27,000) and Khalid's American Teen closing out at No. 10 (27,000).
