The R&B singer is back on top this week with his latest album Looking 4 Myself, which enters at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Usher’s seventh album sold 128,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

It becomes his fourth consecutive No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 following 2010’s Raymond v. Raymond. The new project is also his lowest first-week sales for a regular studio album since 1997’s My Way (67,000).

Looking 4 Myself is not only a hit in the U.S., but worldwide. It tops the iTunes charts in nine other countries including the U.K., Germany, Japan, and the Netherlands.

Elsewhere on the U.S. charts, Waka Flocka Flame’s sophomore set Triple F Life: Fans, Friends & Family bows at No. 10 with 33,000. The Atlanta rapper’s 2010 debut Flockaveli entered at No. 6 with 37,000.
