Lil Baby Nabs First No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 With 'My Turn'

Also making history this week is Bad Bunny’s ‘YHLQMDLG’ that debuts at No. 2, marking the highest-charting all-Spanish-language album ever on the Billboard 200 chart.

AceShowbizLil Baby is celebrating his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart this week. The rapper scores the title with his sophomore effort titled “My Turn”, which successfully opened with 197,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending of March 5, according to Nielsen Music.

Included in that sum are 184,000 in SEA units, which is equating to 261.1 million on-demands streams for the album’s songs in its first week, making “My Turn” the most-streamed album of the week. As for pure sales, it is sold just under 10,000 copies as the artist offers more than a dozen merchandise/album bundles sold on his official website.

“My Turn” marks the Atlanta rapper’s fifth charting album as well as fourth Top 10. Lil Baby previously made his way to the top 10 in the chart with his previous releases, including “Street Gossip”, which got No. 2 in December 2018, and “Drip Harder” with Gunna which took the fourth place back in October 2018. Meanwhile, the spitter’s “Harder Than Ever” landed at No. 3 in June 2018.

In a new interview prior to the release of the new chart, Lil Baby admitted to feeling excited knowing the possibility of landing his first No. 1. “Numbers ain’t really that important,” he offered. “They are when you go No. 1… but, for the most part, don’t try to think about the numbers. Just try to go as hard as you can go.”

Following him up in the second place is Bad Bunny‘s new album “YHLQMDLG”. Earning 179,000 equivalent album units, the album is now the highest-charting all-Spanish-language album ever on the Billboard 200 chart. It tops Mana‘s “Amar es Combatir” which previously held the title after debuting at No. 4 in 2006.

BTS’ (Bangtan Boys) “Map of the Soul: 7”, meanwhile, drops from No. 1 to No. 3 in its second week with 84,000 equivalent album units. The No. 4 spot in this week’s chart is occupied by James Taylor‘s “American Standard” which opens with 82,000. Of the starting sum, 81,000 is in album sales as it’s boosted by a concert ticket/album sale redemption.

Roddy Ricch‘s “Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial” stays in last week’s position at No. 5 with 63,000 equivalent album units, while Justin Bieber‘s “Changes” falls two spots from No. 4 to No. 6 with 62,000 units.

G Herbo’s (Lil Herb) “PTSD” debuts at No. 7 with 59,000 equivalent album units. At No. 8 is rock band Five Finger Death Punch‘s new album “F8”, with Post Malone‘s “Hollywood’s Bleeding” further falling from No. 7 to No. 9 with 50,000 equivalent album units. YoungBoy Never Broke Again closes out the Top 10 with “Still Flexin, Still Steppin” that descends hard from No. 2 to No. 10 with 44,000 equivalent album units.
