YoungBoy's "AI YoungBoy 2" debuts at No. 1.
YoungBoy Never Broke Again has officially joined the ranks of artists who lay claim to No. 1 albums.
The project, which arrived on October 11th, now debuts at the top of the Billboard 200 albums chart with 110,000 equivalent album units in its first week. Naturally, YoungBoy only managed to pull out 3,000 in pure album sales with the remainder of the amount being dominated by digital streaming, translating to 144.7 million on-demand audio streams for the album's 18 tracks.

It becomes the fourth top 10 project to come of the emcee with 2015's Album About Nothing being his last No. 1 after being preceded by the No. 1 The Gifted and Ambition, which topped out at No. 2.
