Usher secures his fourth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart as “Looking 4 Myself” debuts atop the list with 128,000 sold according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The pop/R&B star’s last full-length studio album, 2010’s “Raymond v Raymond,” also launched at No. 1, but with bigger sales. It started with 329,000. “Looking” also registers Usher’s smallest first-week sales for a regular studio album since 1997’s “My Way” bowed with 67,000.

The new album was ushered in by its lead single “Climax,” which is in its ninth straight week at No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Of Usher’s 12 No. 1s on the R&B/Hip-Hop tally, only one has spent more weeks at No. 1: “You Make Me Wanna . . .” (with 11).
