After countless teases, Travis Scott and Quavo's collaborative album finally arrived last week on Dec. 22. Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho, which has been teased since the start of the year, came as something of a Christmas gift when it finally arrived. Now the first week numbers for the album are here, and they're pretty impressive for a low-key album that launched with pretty much no prior warning.
Billboard reports that the album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with 90,000 units, with 17,000 traditional album sales and 70,000 streaming equivalent albums (equating to 105.3 million streams in total). Eminem's Revival sits just behind, while Ed Sheeran's Divide sits at No. 2 and Taylor Swift's Reputation at No. 1. This is the third time Travis Scott has reached the top 10, with Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight debuting at No. 1 in 2016 and Rodeo at No. 3 in 2015. Quavo earned his first No. 1 album earlier this year as part of Migos with their album Culture.
Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho was the latest in a long line of collaborative albums that saw release in 2017, a year which saw the glorious return of the joint rap album. The album features appearances from Offset and Takeoff alongside an uncredited cameo from Yung Lean, but it was set to feature a verse from 2 Chainz, too. Revealing on Instagram via a Swizz Beatz video, he said, "Did a verse to that, a lot of people ain't been using my verses lately," referring to how he was cut from Eminem's Revival.
