Kanye West returns to reclaim his throne atop the Billboard 200 as his sixth album debuts at No. 1. But Lets not count out J. Cole, who wasn’t far behind.

Yeezus sold 327,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It marks the third-largest sales week of the year behind Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience (968,000) and Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories (339,000). After its first day on sale, the album was expected to do as much as 400,000 and seems to have fall short of everyones expectations.

However, J. Cole performed above expectations as his sophomore album Born Sinner enters at No. 2 with 297,000. Mac Miller rounds out the top 3 with his second album Watching Movies With the Sound Off, which opened at No. 3 with 102,000, less than his 2011 debut Blue Slide Park (145,000). All Hail Yeezus!
