Last week, Porter Robinson dominated the Billboard Dance / Electronic Charts with twelve of fourteen tracks on his new album Nurture and was on the list. So it’s no wonder the album debuted at number 1 on this week’s charts as well.
Nurture also marks the first debut on the Billboard Dance / Electronic Albums chart of 2021.
“According to MRC Data, the set earned 14,000 equivalent album units in its first week through April 29,” reports Billboard. “This is the highest weekly total of all albums since their last debut # 1, Kylie Minogue’s Disco (19,000 as reported in the table dated November 21, 2020).
Porter has been working on Nurture since the release of his debut album Worlds in 2014. In the meantime, he took a break from working on his experimental alias Virtual Self, which earned him a 2019 Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording.
