It’s Almost Dry sold 55,000 equivalent album units in its first week, through a combination of streaming, physical purchases, and downloads. Billboard notes that 83% of the units earned came via streaming with the 55,000 figure being the lowest sales needed for a No. 1 album since 2017 when NF reached the summit with Perception.

It's Almost Dry is Pusha T's follow-up to 2018's Daytona, which peaked at No.3. His previous album, King Push – Darkest Before Dawn, reached No.20 in 2015.
