Linkin Park shine atop U.S. albums chart

Rockers Linkin Park have returned to the top of the U.S. albums chart with One More Light.
The stars earn their sixth Billboard 200 chart-topper after shifting 111,000 equivalent album units, with 100,000 of those in traditional sales, becoming just one of nine rock bands to have taken at least six releases to the top of the countdown.
That elite group includes Bon Jovi and Metallica with six apiece, Led Zeppelin and U2 with seven, The Rolling Stones with nine, and The Beatles with 19 Billboard 200 number ones.
Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar climbs one spot to two with DAMN., just ahead of One Direction star Harry Styles’ self-titled project, which falls from first to third place.
Drake’s More Life and Chris Stapleton’s From A Room: Volume 1 round out the new top five at fourth and fifth place, respectively.
