Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Lana Del Rey has scored her second No. 1 album of her career with the release of Lust for Life.

The singer's fifth studio album landed atop the Billboard 200 charts by selling 107,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 27.

Of the sum, 80,000 was from traditional album sales. Billboard calculates their numbers based both on physical sales and streaming numbers for the album.

Del Rey previously dominated the Billboard 200 with 2014's Ultraviolence. The pop star's other releases, including 2012's Born to Die and Paradise and 2015's Honeymoon, have each debuted in the top ten.

Close behind Lust for Life is Tyler, the Creator's fourth studio album Flower Boy in second place with 106,000 equivalent units sold and Meek Mill's third studio album Wins & Loses coming in third with 102,000 equivalent units sold.

Charting in fourth was the soundtrack to Disney Channel movie Decedents 2 while Linkin Park's latest album, One More Light, charted at No. 5 following the death of the band's lead singer Chester Bennington.

In a rare occurrence, Billboards 200 chart was delayed this week after major streaming service Spotify was late in delivering data due to "routine maintenance," The New York Times reported.
