Nas and Hit-Boy‘s surprise joint project Magic has debuted at No. 30 on the Billboard 200.

According to reports, the nine-track project earned a total of 22,000 equivalent album units in its first week. The pair announced the record on December 23, 2021 — a day before its scheduled release date of December 24. Magic features only two guest appearances from A$AP Rocky and DJ Premier on the cut “Wave Gods.”

Nas also used Magic to confirm that he is working on King’s Disease III, rapping the line “KD3 on the way, this just to feed the buzz” on the track “Ugly.” The forthcoming album’s predecessor, King’s Disease II, debuted at No. 3 and was Nas’ highest-charting album in almost a decade.
