The Lonely Island, Tyler, the Creator Score Top 5 Debuts

Comedy trio The Lonely Island and Odd Future frontman Tyler, the Creator crash the albums chart this week, entering in the top 5 with their unconventional releases.

The “SNL” funnymen laugh their way onto the Billboard 200 at No. 3 with their sophomore LP Turtleneck & Chain. The follow-up to 2009’s Incredibad—which debuted at No. 13 with 48,000—sold 68,000 copies thanks in part to their collaborations with Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Akon, and more.

Not far behind The Lonely Island is Tyler, the Creator, whose first commercial release Goblin creeps in at No. 5 with 45,000. OFWGKTA’s leader celebrated his victory on Twitter. “I AM THAT NI**A RIGHT NOW FUCK HARD WORK PAYED OFF YOU CANT TELL ME SHIT NI**UH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” exclaimed an excited Tyler. “50k Is So Much. Like, For Me, Maybe Not To You Guys Whos Used To Mariah Or BOB Selling Millions. Damn, This Is Fucking Wild Fuck.”

Adele’s 21 reigns at the top for an eighth week, while Jennifer Lopez’s LOVE? drops 5-9 with 33,000.
