A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie secured the top spot on Billboard 200 for the first time in his career. The Atlantic Records artist’s Hoodie SZN reached No. 1 after spending the previous two weeks behind 21 Savage’s I Am > I Was. 21 didn’t slip much though, flipping spots with A Boogie with a No. 2.
Elsewhere on the chart, Hip Hop continued to dominate the Top 10. Meek Mill, Post Malone, Drake, Travis Scott and Kodak Black maintained their strangleholds on the chart while emerging artists such as Blueface and YNW Melly managed to find their way onto the Top 200.
A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie earned the first No. 1 album of his career, surpassing 21 Savage for the top spot. The Bronx native’s Hoodie SZN moved 58,341 total album equivalent units, edging out 21’s 55,719 units moved.
Although 21 sold much more in terms of pure album sales (2,804 copies compared to A Boogie’s 823), A Boogie’s streaming numbers allowed him to dethrone Slaughter Gang rhymer. The co-owner of Highbridge The Label racked up more than 83 million streams, making up for his relatively modest album sales.
Prior to Hoodie SZN, A Boogie’s best performing project was his debut album, The Bigger Artist. The LP peaked at No. 4 in 200
