"A Love Letter To You 4" goes No. 1
With his A Love Letter To You 4 album, Trippie Redd has claimed his very first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 albums chart, earning 104,000 equivalent album units in its first week. While it is his first chart-topper, A Love Letter To You 4 is Trippie Redd's fourth top 10 album, previously clocking in at No. 3 two times for ! and last year's A Love Letter To You 3 and at No. 4 for Life's A Trip.
Of its total sales, A Love Letter To You 4 earns 14,000 in pure album sales boosted by a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer that came attached to Trippie's forthcoming tour. The remaining balance of streaming units can be credited to 125.9 million on-demand audio streams for the project's tracks during its opening set, making it the most-streamed album of the week.
This week's top 10 marks a major shift as new debuts appear across the listing, including country star Jason Aldean's 9 which comes in at No. 2. The Frozen II soundtrack surges from No. 15 to No. 3 in its second week. Elsewhere on the chart, YNW Melly's Melly vs. Melvin debuts at No. 8 with 43,000 equivalent album units, marking the incarcerated rapper's first top 10 entry. Currently, he is in jail facing two counts of first-degree murder.
