YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s ‘38 Baby 2’ Debuts at No. 1

YoungBoy Never Broke Again does it again.

The Baton Rouge rapper scores his second No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with 38 Baby 2. The sequel to his 2016 breakout project debuts with 67,000 equivalent album units, of which 4,000 are in album sales.

38 Baby 2 is NBA YoungBoy’s second No. 1 in less than a year following AI YoungBoy 2, which debuted at No. 1 in October 2019 with 110,000 units. His pair of No. 1s came faster than any other act since Future had back-to-back No. 1s with his self-titled album and Hndrxx in March 2017. The 17-track project was the only top 10 debut this week, earning the smallest unit total for a No. 1-debuting album since 2017.

YoungBoy Never Broke Again dethrones DaBaby’s Blame It On Baby, which drops to No. 2 this week after opening atop the chart. The album saw a decrease of 55 percent with 56,000 equivalent album units earned in its second week.

Elsewhere in the top 10, Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake holds at No. 3 (49,000 units), The Weeknd’s After Hours falls 2-4 (48,000), Lil Baby’s My Turn remains at No. 5 (41,000), and Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding stays locked at No. 6 (38,000).

Roddy Ricch’s former No. 1 Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial also remains put at No. 8 (33,000), while Travis Scott’s Astroworld climbs 30-9 with 28,000 units, thanks to his recent Fortnite virtual experience.

Megan Thee Stallion rounds out the top 10 with her Suga EP, which jumps 21-10 (27,000) due to the buzz surrounding Beyoncé’s surprise remix of “Savage.”
