Rick Ross’ ‘Port of Miami 2’ Debuts at No. 2

The Bawse is back on the Billboard charts.

Rick Ross debuts at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with Port of Miami 2, which sold 80,000 equivalent album units (25,000 in album sales) in its first week. The highly-anticipated sequel to his 2006 debut, which features Drake, Lil Wayne, and Nipsey Hussle, is Ross’ highest-charting album since 2014’s Mastermind debuted at No. 1.

Additionally, Port of Miami 2 is Ross’ tenth top 10 on the chart. All 10 of his charting major-label releases have reached the top 10, with five of them hitting No. 1.

Trippie Redd also debuts in the top 10 at No. 3 with !, which sold 51,000 equivalent album units (7,000 in album sales). It marks his third top 10 effort following 2018’s A Love Letter to You 3 (No. 3) and Life’s a Trip (No. 4).

Elsewhere, Ed Sheeran’s No.6 Collaborations Project drops 2-5 (43,000), Chris Brown’s Indigo slides 5-6 (36,000), and Lizzo’s Cuz I Love You rises 8-7 (33,000). Last week’s chart-topper, Drake’s Care Package, falls 1-8 in its second week (31,000).

Khalid’s former No. 1 Free Spirit re-enters the top 10 at No. 9 (30,000), while Lil Nas X’s debut EP 7 rises 11-10 (29,000).
