UPDATE: The numbers for last week’s releases are in. NBA lands at #2 with just shy of 100k copies sold, at 98,334 first week with 3,551 coming from pure sales. BTS sold a whopping 410k copies of their album for the #1 spot.
By now, we all know that NBA YoungBoy is a huge force when it comes to streaming, especially YouTube and Apple Music. In fact, he’s one of the highest streaming artists in the world when it comes to Google’s streaming/video platform.
The Baton Rouge rapper dropped his latest project Still Flexin, Still Reppin this past Friday and although it doesn’t feature any big singles or guest appearances, it’s on track to do healthy numbers this week. HDD reports that it’s set to move 90-100k copies in the first week with just 2-5k out of that coming from pure sales. This should give it a comfortable #2 spot on next week’s Billboard 200 chart, behind BTS’ Map of the Soul 7 which is looking at 260-300k total activity.
Still Flexin, Still Reppin (Never Broke Again /Atlantic) serves as the followup to his AI YoungBoy 2 project which debuted at the #1 spot of Billboard 200 in October last year.
