NEW YORK (NYTimes) - On the Billboard album chart this week, Canadian rapper Nav, a protege of the Weeknd, opened at No. 1, while a new Netflix biopic propelled Motley Crue to the top 10 for the first time in more than a decade.

Nav's Bad Habits opened with the equivalent of 82,000 sales in the United States, including 79 million streams and 24,000 copies sold as a full album, according to Nielsen.

Nav's numbers were helped by bundling deals that offered his fans copies of Bad Habits along with tickets to his upcoming tour, and also by the release of a deluxe version of the album, as Billboard noted.

Ariana Grande's Thank U, Next holds at No. 2 while Juice WRLD's Death Race For Love fell to third place after two weeks at No. 1.

Motley Crue's soundtrack to The Dirt, a drama based on a tell-all book on the band, opened at No. 10, the first time that the rockers have reached the top 10 since their last studio album, Saints Of Los Angeles, went to No. 4 in 2008.
