(Reuters) – Rapper Meek Mill scored his first No. 1 album on the weekly U.S. Billboard 200 album chart on Wednesday, far outpacing R&B artist Miguel for the top spot.

Mill’s sophomore studio record “Dreams Worth More Than Money” sold 215,000 albums, 222,000 songs and was streamed 14 million times, totaling 246,000 units, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan.

Miguel’s “Wildheart” came in at No. 2 with 48,000 units, just ahead of Taylor Swift’s “1989,” which sold 47,500 units in its 36th week on the chart.

Other new entries to crack into the top ten of the Billboard 200 chart this week include alt-rock band X Ambassadors’ “VHS” at No. 7, “Found in Far Away Places” by metalcore band August Burns Red at No. 9 and the soundtrack to Warner Bros’ raunchy male stripper film “Magic Mike XXL” at No. 10.
