Kendrick Lamar surprised fans earlier this month with the release of an album, titled untitled unmastered.

This week, it debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

According to Nielsen Music (via Billboard), the album has earned 178,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 10. Of that sum, 142,000 were in pure album sales.
