Lil Baby has landed his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with his sophomore album My Turn. Released via Quality Control/Motown on February 28, the album earned 197,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending March 5. His most recent solo project, Street Gossip, topped charts at the No. 2 spot, with Drip Harder alongside Gunna topping out at No. 4, and his debut album Harder Than Ever reaching the No. 3 spot.
My Turn owes its No. 1 spot to overwhelming streaming activity, with 184,000 of the 197,000 units coming from streaming (~262 million on-demand streams for the album’s tracks). Traditional album sales made up just below 10,000 copies, with merch/album bundles equating to 4,000 in TEA unit sales.
Bad Bunny took the second spot with YHLQMDLG, earning 179,000 units. 142,000 of those were SEA units (201.4 million on-demand streams of the album’s tracks in its first week), with 35,000 in traditional album sales. Merch/album bundles equated to roughly 1,000 in TEA unit sales. His feat marks a new chart record for a Latin artist this week, officially hitting the all-time peak for a Spanish-language project in Billboard chart history.
Other albums included in the top 10 are BTS’ Map of the Soul: 7, which falls from No. 1 to No. 3 in its second weak with 84,000 equivalent units, Roddy Ricch’s Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial at No. 5 with 63,000 equivalent album units, Justin Bieber’s Changes at No. 6 with 62,000 units, and G Herbo’s first top 10 with PTSD debuting at No. 7 with 59,000 equivalent album units.
