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.
If you haven’t yet, make sure you listen to¬†C U L T U R E¬†below!
