A$AP Rocky’s ‘A.L.L.A.’ Debuts at No. 1

All hail Lord Flacko. A$AP Rocky scores his second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with At.Long.Last.A$AP.

His sophomore set, which features appearances from Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and Miguel, moved 146,000 units in its first week, according to Billboard. Of that number, 117,000 were traditional album sales.

The album was originally slated for a June 2 release, but arrived a week early. Rocky’s debut, 2013’s Long.Live.A$AP, entered the charts at No. 1 with 139,000 copies sold.

A.L.L.A. is the sixth rap album to top the Billboard 200 in 2015, following the Furious 7 soundtrack, Wale’s The Album About Nothing, Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly, Big Sean’s Dark Sky Paradise, and Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.

Boosie BadAzz also returns to the charts with his post-prison album Touch Down 2 Cause Hell, which becomes his highest-charting album and best sales week yet at No. 3 with 64,000 units (59,000 in pure sales). His previous best was 2009’s Superbad: The Return of Boosie Bad Azz, which debuted and peaked at No. 7 with 49,000.
