*After seeing two previous albums debut at No. 2, Wiz Khalifa finally tops the chart this week with his new album “Blacc Hollywood.”

The set sold 90,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It was enough to unseat the “Guardians of the Galaxy” soundtrack on top of the Billboard 200 chart.

The album, which was released Aug. 19, follows two No. 2-peaking albums from Khalifa: “Rolling Papers” and “O.N.I.F.C.,” which were released in 2011 and 2012, respectively.

Khalifa also bounds in at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and the Rap Albums chart.

Taylor Swift had the week’s top-selling track after debuting Shake It Off a week ago Monday. The track sold 544,000 first-week copies. According to Billboard, that’s the best sales week any track has had in 2014, and it’s the fourth-biggest debut ever, behind Flo Rida’s “Right Round” (636,000, 2009), Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” (623,000, 2012) and Katy Perry’s “Roar” (557,000, 2013).
