Young Thug’s “Punk” Becomes Second Solo Album # 1


Two years after first announcing it, Young Thug shared their second album, Punk, earlier this month, with appearances from Travis Scott, J. Cole, Future, Mac Miller, Juice WRLD, Post Malone, ASAP Rocky, Gunna, and more. Sonically it was very different from his first album So funny, which arrived in the summer of 2019. The album was well received by its listeners, so much so that it reached number 1 on the charts in its first week.

Punk debuted at the top of the Billboard A list of 200 dated October 30 thanks to the 90,000 album units sold during its first week. Of these, equivalent streaming album units accounted for 77,000 of total sales, while 12,000 represented pure album sales. This is Thug’s second solo album to reach # 1 after So funny did so in 2019. It is also his third overall album to become No. 1, after his Slime Tongue 2 Compilation album, released by his label Young Stoner Life, topped the charts earlier this year.

Elsewhere, Drake’s old album # 1, Boy in love certified, is recorded at n ° 2, and the 2014 Mac Miller mixtape, Faces, appears at # 3 after the late rapper’s estate reissued it on streaming platforms.
