It’s official! Migos have scored their first Number One album with C U L T U R E. Billboard has released the official numbers, and the ATL trio raked in a total of 131,000 in sales. Of that number, 77,000 were from streaming, making up 59% of the total, thus proving that rap is still ahead of other genres when it comes to the reliability and importance of streaming.
Their last album, Yung Rich Nation, came in at Number 17 in 2015, selling 14,000 in its first week. So yes, Migos sold more copies of C U L T U R E in a day than YRN in a week. That growth is unbelievable! Given, the success has been a long process since their breakout “Versace“, and having a Number One song (“Bad and Boujee“) always helps with the album. If it wasn’t official before, it is now: Migos are the hottest group in rap! And from here they can only get bigger.
