Lil Wayne's Funeral is the No.1 album in the country, Billboard reports. The album, released on January 31, is Wayne's fifth chart topping effort and his first since his last album Tha Carter V in 2018.
Funeral earned 139,000 equivalent album units in its first week of availability. 99,000 of those units came from streams with the remaining 40,000 being sold physically. Songs from the record were streamed 134m times in the first week. The album replaces Roddy Ricch's Please Excuse Me For Being Anti-Social atop the Billboard 200.
Lil Wayne previously topped the Billboard 200 with Tha Carter V (2018), Tha Carter IV (2011), I Am Not a Human Being (2010) and Tha Carter III (2008). He first debuted on the chart twenty years ago when his 1999 album Tha Block Is Hot debuted at No. 3.
Funeral features contributions from artists including Adam Levine, 2 Chainz, Lil Baby, and Big Sean. Last week he performed "Dreams" from the record on The Tonight Show and made an unexpected appearance on The Masked Singer, performing as a robot.
