NF scores huge on Billboard charts

Michigan artist NF has snatched his first no. 1 album on the Billboard Hot 200 charts this week. His album Perception has moved 55,000 equivalent units in the U.S. during it’s opening week. Also, he adds 38,000 traditional copies and the album has 21 million streams.

NF falls in line with Lecrae when it comes to being labeled a “Christian rapper.” Both have stated that they are simply artists and make music. That’s it.

NF is not the only rapper moving the chains on the Billboard charts. Miami’s own Lil Pump reached the no. 3 spot on the charts with his self-titled debut album. 57 million streams which worked him in with 46,000 equivalent units in the opening week isn’t too bad.

Post Malone is also making new way with his 21 Savage-assisted single “Rockstar.” The new single has knocked Cardi B out of that no. 1 position on the Hot 100 charts. It’s Post and 21’s first no. 1 song.
