Pusha-T and A$AP Rocky

Pusha-T and A$AP Rocky Score Top 5 Debuts

Pusha-T is putting numbers on the board.

In the midst of his Drake feud, the G.O.O.D. Music president scores his highest-charting debut yet with his third album Daytona, which enters at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 with 77,000 units. Of that sum, 39,000 were traditional album sales and 36,000 were SEA units. At only seven tracks, the album registered an impressive 53.8 million on-demand audio streams.

Pusha’s previous best was 2013’s My Name Is My Name, which debuted and peaked at No. 4 with 74,000 copies in its first week. His sophomore LP, King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, peaked at No. 17 in Jan. 2016.

Entering behind Pusha is A$AP Rocky’s Testing, which opens at No. 4 with 75,000 units (13,000 traditional, 60,000 SEA). The star-studded set, featuring Frank Ocean, FKA twigs, and Kid Cudi, marks Rocky’s third straight top 5 album following 2015’s At.Long.Last.A$AP and 2013’s Long.Live.A$AP, which both debuted at No. 1.

Elsewhere, Shawn Mendes scores his third chart-topper with his self-titled album, while Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys remains at No. 2 (104,000). Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy holds at No. 5 (47,000), and Lil Baby’s Harder Than Ever drops 3-7 in its second week (45,000).

Chicago rapper Juice WRLD scores his first top 10 with Goodbye & Good Riddance, which jumps 15-8 in its second week (43,000).
