DaBaby is opening this week strong as Blame It on Baby makes its debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, earning a total of 124,000 equivalent album units. Of that number, 110,000 are credited to streaming equivalent album units (158.84 million on-demand streams), 12,000 in album sales and 3,000 in track equivalent album units. This marks the rapper’s second No. 1 opener following KIRK in October 2019.
The new chart leader effectively overthrows The Weeknd‘s After Hours and knocks it down to No. 2 after four consecutive weeks on top. Staying in his place at No. 3 is Lil Uzi Vert with Eternal Atake, followed by Fiona Apple’s Fetch the Bolt Cutters debuting at No. 4. At the halfway point, Lil Baby drops down a spot to No. 5 while Post Malone‘s Hollywood’s Bleeding, Bad Bunny‘s YHLQMDLG and Roddy Ricch‘s Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial take Nos. 6, 7 and 8 respectively. Rounding up this week’s top 10 are Rod Wave’s Pray 4 Love and Tory Lanez‘s The New Toronto 3.
