Hip Hop Album Sales: A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie Debut LP Scores While PARTYNEXTDOOR Takes A Hit

This week’s Hip Hop album sales finds A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s Bigger Artist making its debut on the Billboard 200 at #4 and surpassing pop maven Miley Cyrus and her new album, Younger Now, which landed at #5 for the week ending October 5.

Rittz’s final Strange Music, Inc. album, Last Call, enters the chart at #43, while Smokepurpp’s Deadstar debuts slightly higher at #42. PARTYNEXTDOOR’s Seven Days EP hits the chart at #82, marking a somewhat dismal debut for the OVO Sound signee.

Elsewhere on the chart, Macklemore’s Gemini takes a 61 percent dip in sales, winding up at #19 and Lil Uzi Vert’s Luv Is Rage 2 drops from #3 to #7.

Post Malone’s Stoney and Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. are still hanging in the Top 10, but XXXTENTACION’s 17 and Kodak Black’s Project Baby 2 have slid into the Top 20.
