Young Thug’s ‘Jeffery’ Makes Top 10 Debut

Jeffery cracks the top 10.

Young Thug’s mixtape debuts at No. 8 on the Billboard 200, selling 37,000 units (18,000 traditional) in its first week of availability.

The 10-track project, which features Travis Scott, Gucci Mane, and Wyclef Jean, among others, only adds to Thug’s already-impressive year. In fact, it marks the eccentric rapper’s third top 40 placement in 2016. In February, he broke into the top 40 with I’m Up at No. 22 and, in April, Slime Season 3 hit No. 7.

Barbra Streisand’s Encore takes the top spot this week, while Britney Spears’ Glory debuts at No. 3. The latter, which features the G-Eazy-assisted single “Make Me…,” becomes Spears’ 10th top five Billboard 200 album.

Elsewhere in the top 10, Drake’s Views slides 2-4, while last week’s chart-topper, Frank Ocean’s Blonde, falls to No. 5. Beyoncé’s LEMONADE returns to the top 10 at No. 7 (26,000) following her VMA performance, and Rihanna’s ANTI sits at No. 9 (32,000).
