Lil Uzi Vert released his new album Pink Tape last Friday that featured big names like Travis Scott, Nicki Minaj, Don Toliver and more.
The reaction to the album from fans has been pretty mixed with some loving it while others calling it a waste of time. Today, we have an idea of what the album is moving in the first week. HDD reports that Pink Tape will do 165k copies in the first 7 days, pushing it to become the first hip hop album to debut at #1 this year.
Half way into 2023, not a single hip hop song has reached #1 on Hot 100.

There was a huge conversation on Twitter three weeks ago on Billboard when it reported that not a single hip hop album had hit number 1 this year so far which was the first time it happened since 1993. Uzi will now be able to break that uncomfortable trend. Lookout for the final numbers over the weekend.
