YoungBoy Never Broke Again has topped the Billboard 200 with his latest album, the appropriately titled Top. The 21-track album was released on September 11 and features guests Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg. Top is Youngboy's third No.1 album following AI YoungBoy 2 (a chart-topping effort in October 2019) and May release 38 Baby 2.
Released via Never Broke Again/Artist Partner Group/Atlantic, Top sold 126,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. on its way to No.1. That figure was predominantly boosted by 106,000 SEA units, made up of streaming data. Nielsen figures show the album was streamed 156m times in its first week available. YoungBoy's online fandom is well-noted, he was the biggest music artist on YouTube in 2019.
Top replaces Big Sean's Detroit 2 as the No.1 album in the country. This week's top 5 is rounded out by Pop Smoke's Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon, Juice WRLD’s Legends Never Die and Taylor Swift’s former No. 1 Folklore respectively. The original Broadway cast recording of Hamilton: An American Musical is at No. 5.
Since emerging in 2017 the prolific YoungBoy has placed 15 albums on the Billboard chart, including four EPs. No other artist has charted as many albums of newly recorded material in that same span of time.
