Logic has notched another No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with his latest mixtape, Bobby Tarantino II. Less than a year after his third studio effort Everybody debuted at the top spot after amassing 247,000 equivalent units, Bobby Tarantino II moved a far less impressive 119,000 units with 32,000 of which coming from traditional album sales. However, his mixtape greatly outshined his previous project in streams.
Bobby Tarantino II boasted 82,000 streaming equivalent streams (SEA) units, which comes out to 123 million on-demand audio streams. Everybody did a little more than half of that number with 47,000. His latest mixtape nearly doubled the numbers (64,000 units; 7,000 coming from traditional album sales) put up by Lil Yachty’s Lil Boat 2 this week. Yachty’s second studio album did just enough to barely surpass the 63,000 units moved by American Utopia from David Byrne for the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 chart.
Bobby Tarantino II's solid performance on the Billboard 200 chart is a bit of good news in what must be a tough time for Logic. On Friday, reports surfaced that the rapper was splitting with his wife Jessica Andrea. The two were married in October 2015 after they dated for two years. Regardless of what is going on in his personal life, the show must go on. Logic is preparing to head out on his Bobby Tarantino vs. Everybody Tour, a 33-date North American tour with NF and KYLE, starting in June.
