Wale's new release edged out the Furious 7 soundtrack for the top spot with close to 100,000 first-week sales.

The action film soundtrack races up the chart from 17 to two, driven by sales of 74,000, while the movie's star Ludacris enters the new chart at three with Ludaversal - his eighth top 10 album.

Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly, which was last week's number one, falls to four and Taylor Swift's 1989 spends a 23rd consecutive week in the top five at five.

According to Billboard.com, only 10 albums have spent their first 23 weeks on the chart in the top five - the last to do so was Adele's 21, which spent a total of 39 weeks there in 2011.
