Lil Wayne has earned the fifth No. 1 album of his career. The Young Money rapper’s Funeral LP has debuted at the top of the Billboard 200.
This gives him back-to-back No. 1 albums following Tha Carter V’s performance in 2018.
Wayne’s Funeral sold 139,000 album-equivalent units for the week ending February 6, according to Nielsen Music.
The project moved 38,000 copies in terms of pure albums sales, but the LP was bolstered by its songs racking up 134 million on-demand streams.
Funeral joins Wayne’s Tha Carter III, I Am Not A Human Being, Tha Carter IV and the aforementioned Carter V as No. 1 albums in his discography.
All of the chart-topping entries in his Carter series have been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America while I Am Not A Human Being received a gold certification.
Lil Wayne’s latest appearance on the Billboard 200 knocked down Roddy Ricch’s Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial down to No. 2 after Roddy ascended to No. 1 for the third time last week. Eminem’s Music To Be Murdered By was bumped down by Wayne too, moving from No. 2 to No. 3.
