For starters, Roddy Ricch's Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial landed at the top spot on the Billboard 200, with 101,000 equivalent album units earned. au
The rapper has been having a great year, including three Grammy nominations for his work on his late friend Nipsey Hussle's "Racks in the Middle" and Mustard's "Ballin." He told the Los Angeles Times in a recent interview how it felt to be nominated for the music industry's top prize.
"I don't really know, but it's a blessing, really, that the Grammys would even consider our writing abilities in the song to be among the greatest in the game," he said. "I just know that I'm supposed to be here, because if I wasn’t I wouldn’t be. I feel like my mom’s prayers worked."
Meanwhile, Juice WRLD's debut studio album Goodbye & Good Riddance also re-entered the top 10 following his untimely death, landing at no. 5. The same can be said for his former number one album Death Race for Love, which soared to the no. 10 spot. Juice WRLD's death caused a spike in his streaming numbers, as the late artist received 38.2 million streams across America this week alone. Fans gave his tracks 24 million more plays than any other artist out right now with a nearly 487 percent surge.
Elsewhere on the list, Camila Cabello's Romance landed at No. 3 with 86,000 units, while XXXTentacion's posthumous Bad Vibes Forever clocked in at No. 5 with 65,000 units.
French Montana's Montana debuted at 25, with a disappointing 24,523 copies moved, and 5,510 copies from pure sales.
Montana was hospitalized recently for severe stomach issues and an elevated heart rate before dropping the new project. "You know, life come at you sometimes, get you down to your knees. That's what happened when you try to be too much of a rock star on your birthday," the rapper told Zane Lowe about his health scare. "I turned up so much I ended up in the ICU. Damn, for real. I went to like four different countries in like six days. Saudi, Egypt, Morocco, and like somewhere else. I ended up in my house. The rock star got a story to tell his kids."
