Lil Baby and Roddy Ricch closed out 2020 with strong numbers as My Turn and “The Box” were named the most streamed album and song of the year.

According to reports, Lil Baby’s sophomore effort sold 2.632 million equivalent album units and earned 3.93 billion streams in 2020. Its strong streaming numbers, however, are contrasted by only 40,000 traditional album sales, making the record one of the three albums in the top 10 to have sold under 100,000 copies. My Turn debuted at No. 1 and took the top spot for five non-consecutive weeks — the second highest of 2020 behind Taylor Swift’s folklore. 2020 marks the third year that an R&B/hip-hop album took the No. 1 spot, following Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding in 2019 and Drake’s Scorpion in 2018.

Meanwhile, Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” was crowned the most streamed song of 2020 in the U.S., garnering 1.32 billion on-demand audio and video streams. It was also named the most streamed titles for both audio-only and video-only on-demand streams, earning 920.42 million and 399.22 million respectively. The song logged 13 weeks at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart and stayed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 11 weeks.
