Red Hot Chili Peppers top US charts with Unlimited Love

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have topped the US charts with their new album, “Unlimited Love.”

According to Billboard, the record enters the Billboard 200 at No. 1 with first week sales of 97,500 equivalent album units to mark the largest week for any rock album since Paul McCartney’s 2021 set, “McCartney III” (which debuted at No. 2 in January of last year with 107,000 units, of which album sales comprised 104,000).

A breakdown of the “Unlimited Love” sales by category lists 82,500 album sales, with streaming equivalent units of 14,500 (equaling 18.96 million on-demand official streams of the set’s songs); and track equivalent albums units comprise 500.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album.

Produced by Rick Rubin, “Unlimited Love” marks the Chili Peppers’ first US No. 1 since 2006’s “Stadium Arcadium.”

A few days ago, the project debuted at No. 1 in the UK, and has since scored Top 3 success in more than a dozen countries.
