As projected last week, rap sensation DaBaby has nabbed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 with the release of KIRK. The 13-track project, which is the rapper’s second studio album, marks his first No. 1 on the chart and opened with 145,000 equivalent album units (8,000 traditional album sales).

KIRK includes heavy-hitting features from the likes of Chance the Rapper, Kevin Gates, Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane and Migos. In its first week, it’s pulled in 181.7 million on-demand audio streams, which Billboard notes as the fifth-largest debut streaming week for any album this year. It follows behind his first studio project, Baby on Baby, which the artist dropped in March.

Another chart-topper this week includes Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding, which was knocked down to No. 2. Kevin Gates entered the top 10 with I’m Him at No. 4. Meanwhile, Young Thug’s So Much Fun landed at No. 8 and Lizzo’s Cuz I Love You at No. 9.

Elsewhere for DaBaby, he shared the official music video for “Vibez” last week.
