ZBB finds "Welcome Home" in second

Sunday, May 21, 2017 – Zac Brown Band is second on the Billboard Top 200 chart with the group's new disc "Welcome Home."

The disc moved 146,000 units, far behind One Direction's Harry Styles' self-titled debut, which had 230,000 equivalent album units for the week ending May 18. The figure for ZBB was far less than 2015's "Jekyll + Hyde," which debuted in first with 228,000 units.

Chris Stapleton was down two to fourth in its second out with "From a Room: Volume 1." His second release moved 75,000 units, down 66 percent.

The charts will be officially released on Tuesday.
