Shania Twain debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with Now, her first studio album in nearly 15 years. The set starts atop the list with 137,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 5, according to Nielsen Music.

Of that sum, 134,000 were in traditional album sales -- the third-largest sales week for a country album in 2017, and the largest for a woman in nearly two years. Now, which was released on Sept. 29 through Mercury Nashville, is Twain’s second No. 1 album and the first chart-topping country set by a female artist in over three years.

At No. 2 on the new Billboard 200, the late Tom Petty re-enters with his Greatest Hits (alongside The Heartbreakers), as the album returns to the list with 84,000 units (up 2,231 percent) and 52,000 in traditional album sales (up 3,407 percent). Petty died on Oct. 2. Greatest Hits initially peaked at No. 5 in February of 1994, following its release the previous year.

Demi Lovato earns her sixth top 10 album with the debut of Tell Me You Love Me at No. 3. It bows with 75,000 units (48,000 in traditional album sales). She previously hit the top 10 with all five of her prior releases: Confident (No. 2 in 2015), Demi (No. 3, 2013), Unbroken (No. 4, 2011), Here We Go Again (No. 1, 2009), and Don’t Forget (No. 2, 2008).

At No. 4, Rapper A Boogie Wit da Hoodie scores his first top 10 album, as his first full-length studio album, The Bigger Artist, launches with 67,000 units (10,000 in traditional album sales). The set is largely powered by streaming activity, as it collected 54,000 SEA units (equaling 81.2 million on-demand audio streams for the album’s songs in its first week). A Boogie Wit da Hoodie has charted twice previously with the mixtapes Artist (No. 70) and TBA (No. 63).

Miley Cyrus’ Younger Now rounds out the debuts in the top 10, as the album bows at No. 5 with 45,000 units (33,000 in traditional album sales). It’s Cyrus’ 13th charting effort, and 11th top 10 album (including titles billed to her former Disney Channel alter ego, Hannah Montana). She was last in the top 10 with her 2013 effort Bangerz, which debuted at No. 1.

Post Malone’s Stoney is steady at No. 6 on the new Billboard 200, with 42,000 units (up 14 percent) while Lil Uzi Vert’s Luv Is Rage 2 dips four slots to No. 7 with 40,000 units (down 10 percent). Imagine Dragons’ Evolve falls one position to No. 8 with 39,000 units (though up 6 percent) and Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. descends 8-9 with 34,000 units (down less than 1 percent). Ed Sheeran’s ÷ (Divide) closes out the top 10, as it’s a non-mover at No. 10 with 31,000 units (up 4 percent).
Fffff, poor Viley
Hive Mind
not 45k
And sometimes we make it and sometimes we fake it,
but we get one step closer each and everyday, we'll figure it out on the way...
I underestimated shania

glad for demi's top 3

miley underperformed big time
Shadows play on idle hands I lose myself I do
But I've found my way to velvet sands
I'll crash right into you
