Lil Wayne Is First to Debut Two Songs in Top Five
Lil Wayne charts four tracks from “Tha Carter V” in the top 10 & 22 from the set on the Hot 100 overall.
Meanwhile, Lil Wayne makes history as the first artist to debut two songs in the Hot 100’s top five simultaneously, as “Mona Lisa,” featuring Kendrick Lamar, launches at No. 2 and “Don’t Cry,” featuring XXXTentacion, bows at No. 5. Plus, Lil Wayne joins Drake as the only artists to debut four songs in the top 10 in a single week, as “Uproar” enters at No. 7 and “Let It Fly,” featuring Travis Scott, starts at No. 10.
Additionally, 22 tracks from Tha Carter V, which debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, enter the Hot 100, as Lil Wayne further matches Drake as the only acts to chart at least 22 songs simultaneously in the survey’s history.
Here’s a rundown of the top 10 and more on the newest Hot 100, which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, 🙌🏽 radio airplay and digital sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow.
The set, which was released on Sept. 28 via Young Money/Republic Records, makes a splash with 480,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 4, according to Nielsen Music. That sum is the third-largest week for an album in 2018. Further, Tha Carter V also opens with the second-biggest streaming week ever for an album, with 433 million on-demand audio streams logged for its songs in its first week.
Record-tying four top 10 debuts: Plus, as “Uproar” debuts at No. 7 on the Hot 100 and “Let It Fly,” featuring Travis Scott, begins at No. 10, Lil Wayne becomes the fifth act to have debuted multiple songs in the Hot 100’s top 10 simultaneously, joining Ed Sheeran, Drake, J. Cole and Scott.
Drake has achieved the feat three times, including launching four titles in the top 10 on the July 14-dated chart, a record that Lil Wayne matches:
Drake, July 14, 2018
No. 2, “Nonstop”
No. 6, “In My Feelings”
No. 8, “Emotionless”
No. 9, “Don’t Matter to Me,” feat. Michael Jackson
Lil Wayne, Oct. 13, 2018
No. 2, “Mona Lisa,” feat. Kendrick Lamar
No. 5, “Don’t Cry,” feat. XXXTentacion
No. 7, “Uproar”
No. 10, “Let It Fly,” feat. Travis Scott
Tha Carter V leads a busy top 10, which includes five debuts, with new arrivals filling out the top four spots. It’s the first time the top four have all been debuts in nearly a year. It last happened on the Nov. 14, 2017-dated tally, when Kenny Chesney’s Live in No Shoes Nation, Kelly Clarkson’s Meaning of Life, Chris Brown’s Heartbreak on a Full Moon and 21 Savage, Offset and Metro Boomin’s Without Warning bowed at Nos. 1-4, respectively.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Oct. 13-dated chart — where Tha Carter V debuts at No. 1 — will be posted in full on Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Oct. 9.
Of Tha Carter V’s 480,000 units, most were driven by SEA units: 325,000. The rest of the title’s opening overall unit sum is comprised of album sales totaling 141,000 and TEA units equaling 14,000.
Third-Biggest Week for an Album in 2018: As Tha Carter V bows with 480,000 units earned, it registers the third-largest week for an album in 2018. The only bigger weeks were logged by Drake’s Scorpion (732,000 units when it debuted at No. 1 on the July 14-dated tally) and Travis Scott’s Astroworld (537,000 in its debut frame, Aug. 18).
