Post Malone’s ‘Stoney’ Breaks Billboard Record

Post Malone's 'Stoney' Breaks Billboard Record

Post Malone has another major accolade to add to his growing resume of accomplishments.

As Billboard reports, Post Malone’s debut album Stoney has racked up its 77th week in the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart’s top 10, making it the album with the most weeks in that chart’s top 10 rankings. The previous record was held by Michael Jackson‘s 1982 album Thriller, which boasts 76 weeks in Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart’s top 10 and held the aforementioned record for 34 years. Whitney Houston’s self-titled LP comes in at number three with 64 weeks, The Black Eyed Peas’ The E.N.D. take the fourth spot with 63 weeks and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ The Heist comes in at number five with 59 weeks.

Released back in December of 2016, Stoney was supported by Post Malone’s breakout hit “White Iverson,” “Rockstar” and the Quavo-assisted “Congratulations.” The project went platinum in April of 2017, and spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Earlier this summer, Post Malone and Quavo’s “Congratulations” also went eight times platinum, nearing diamond status.

Earlier this year, Post Malone’s Stoney follow-up album, Beerbongs & Bentleys, surpassed a Billboard record previously held by The Beatles and J. Cole.
