Senjutsu enters the chart at #3, with 64,000 equivalent album units, 61,000 of which were traditional album sales, making it the best-selling album of the week.
Its debut sales week is the second-best of 2021 for a hard-rock album, following only Foo Fighters‘ Medicine at Midnight.
Iron Maiden’s previous two studio albums, 2010’s The Final Frontier and 2015’s The Book of Souls, both peaked at #4 on the Billboard 200.
