Moneybagg Yo Reacts To Going No. 1
Yo hit up his Twitter page to geek out over the accomplishment. Moneybagg made sure to acknowledge how much his fans’ support played into topping the chart.
“1 Album In Da World 🤯🙌🏾 Mannnnee Dis Sh*t Feel Crazy, I’m Forever Grateful For This! Without My Fans and My Team I Wouldn’t Be Shit ! God Working Thank Y’all I Promise To Neva Let Up !! #DeluxeOTW #BreadGang”
After seven days of availability, Moneybagg’s latest solo effort blew away its competition on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The project pushed out well over 100,000 copies in week 1.
Moneybagg Yo scores a #1 bow on this week’s Top 50 chart with A Gangsta’s Pain (CMG/N-Less/Interscope), which racks up 111k+. Eric Church’s Soul (EMI Nashville) debuts in the Top 5 with nearly 54k. The set is the second recent release from Church, after 4/16’s Heart (yes, there’s an & EP that makes it a trilogy, but you need to be in the fan club to get your mitts on it). XO/Republic’s The Weeknd re-enters the Top 10 with After Hours, coming close to 40k (good for #7). (HITS Daily Double)
