DaBaby’s ‘Blame It on Baby’ Debuts at No. 1

DaBaby is back on top.

The North Carolina rapper debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with Blame It on Baby. His sophomore set, which features appearances from Future, Roddy Ricch, and Megan Thee Stallion, earned 124,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in its first week, of which 12,000 are in album sales. This marks his second No. 1 following KIRK, which opened at No. 1 in October with 146,000 units.

A grateful Baby took to Instagram to celebrate his latest achievement. “God is great,” he wrote, adding, “Back to work.”

Blame It on Baby dethrones The Weeknd’s After Hours from the No. 1 spot after four weeks straight. The Toronto singer’s album, which features the Hot 100 chart-topper “Blinding Lights,” falls to No. 2 with 55,000 equivalent album units.

This week’s top 10 is dominated by hip-hop releases. Lil Uzi Vert’s former No. 1 Eternal Atake remains at No. 3 with 54,000 equivalent album units, while Lil Baby’s My Turn drops 4-5 with 42,000 units. Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding holds at No. 6 (37,000) and Bad Bunny’s YHLQMDLG slides 5-7 (36,000).

Roddy Ricch’s former chart-topper Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial dips 7-8 (34,000), Rod Wave’s Pray 4 Love holds at No. 9 (32,000), and Tory Lanez’s The New Toronto 3 falls 2-10 in its second week (28,000).
