Atlanta’s new school is well represented in the top of the newly-released Billboard 200 chart, as both Gunna and Offset‘s new albums come in in the top five of the chart announced on Sunday (March 3.)
Both rappers dropped projects last week, with Gunna releasing Drip or Drown 2 and Offset putting out his debut solo album Father of 4. DOD2 debuts at the No. 3 spot having moved 90,000 equivalent album units, of which 7,000 came from traditional album sales. The rank marks the YSL artist’s highest position on the chart, outdoing his 2018 collab Drip Harder with Lil Baby by one spot.
Offset’s Father of 4 comes in at spot No. 4, with 89,000 equivalent album units earned. Of his tally, he also gained 7,000 in traditional album sales. This marks his second time in the top 10 for a non-Migos release. His Without Warning collab effort with 21 Savage in 2017 also reached the No. 4 spot.
Lil Pump’s Harverd Dropout album premieres in the No. 7 slot after pushing 48,000 equivalent album units. His 25,000 in album sales were assisted partially by merchandise and album bundles. Other rappers in the top 10 include A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, whose Hoodie SZN album sits at No. 8. Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys album is still moving enough units to keep pace with new projects even though it was released 11 months ago. It somehow holds onto the No. 10 spot after pushing an additional 33K last week.
