Lil Uzi Vert’s ‘Luv Is Rage 2’ Album Scores No. 1 Spot on Billboard 200
The outlet reports that Luv Is Rage 2 moved 28,000 units in traditional album sales, as well as 100,000 SEA units that translate to 150.6 million on-demand audio streams of tracks on the album. Uzi's project's sales are also reportedly the highest debut numbers for an album since Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. album sold 105,000 units the third week it was on the charts. Luv Is Rage 2 is also the third-largest streaming debut of the year, following in the footsteps of Drake's More Life and K. Dot's LP.
XXXTentacion comes in at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart for his 17 album. The first full-length studio project from the "Look At Me!" entertainer moves 87,000 units with 18,000 being in traditional album sales. Back in June, Tentacion's Revenge mixtape hit No. 44 on the charts.
A$AP Mob also joins the hip-hop population on the Billboard 200, hitting No. 6 with their Cozy Tapes, Vol. 2: Too Cozy project. The project debuts moved 41,000 units, with 7,000 units being in traditional album sales. To compare to their first Cozy Tapes Vol. 1, the project from the Harlem collective peaked at No. 13, having moved 21,000 units.
This is definitely a huge feat for Lil Uzi, XXXTentacion as well as A$AP Mob. Congratulations to all on their high success.
