Congratulations to Gojira for having the top-selling album in the United States this week. The numbers are in, with Fortitude giving the French metal juggernauts their highest charting position to date.
Gojira’s seventh album debuted at No. 12 on the Billboard 200, crushing the release of 2016’s Magma, which peaked at No. 24. Album audio and video streaming is factored into the final numbers on the Billboard 200, which is why Fortitude only placed twelfth there. Overall, Fortitude moved 27,372 units in the United States (24,104 pure sales) which brings Gojira to No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart.
