Fetty Wap will debut at the top of the charts this week.
After dominating the singles chart for the last few months, Fetty Wap is officially taking over the Billboard 200, with his self-titled debut landing at the number one spot in its first week.
Fetty Wap surpassed already high expectations by moving 129,000 units with streams (75k traditionally), making it the first rap debut to hit number one its first week since ASAP Rocky‘s Long.Live.ASAP in 2013.
It pushes Drake and Future’s What A Time To Be Alive (which sells 107k this week) out of the first slot. We should see the release reflected in the Hot 100 charts as well. We’ll have more on that in the next few days.
Meanwhile, Fetty is still recovering from injuries he suffered in a motorcycle accident last weekend. We’re sure he’ll be happy to hear the news.
