Playboi Carti‘s newest studio album Whole Lotta Red has topped the Billboard 200 charts as No. 1 in its debut.

Released on Christmas day, the album pushed 100,000 units in its opening week and replacing Miley Cyrus from the top of the charts — 10,000 units from the total came from traditional album sales. It’s Carti’s biggest debut of his career, marking his first No. 1 and his second album to land in the top-three (Die Lit opened at No. 3 back in 2018). The LP includes features from Kanye West, Kid Cudi, and Future, alongside producers like Pi’erre Bourne, Art Dealer, Outtatown, star boy, and Wheezy.
