The rapper’s 30-track album, which he recently hinted could be his “last,” has debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, per Billboard. The Last Slimeto brought in an impressive 108,400 album equivalent units, of which 103,500 of that figure came purely from streams. The record gained over 161 million on-demand streams in its first week of release, although 11 of its tracks were available to stream months ahead of its full drop.
This means YoungBoy is the only artist so far this year to earn three new top ten records on the chart in 2022, following the strong debuts of Colors in February and his DaBaby collab album Better Than You in March. Snatching the No. 1 spot was Bad Bunny’s unstoppable Un Verano Sin Ti, returning to the top of the chart for its 14th week overall, thanks to 108,800 album equivalent units earned.
Meanwhile, Beyoncé’s latest, Renaissance, dropped to No. 3 in its second week on the chart after debuting at No. 1. With 89,00 album equivalent units, a reduction of 73 percent, Bey’s new dance-oriented record seems poised to stick around. Eminem’s second greatest hits compilation, Curtain Call 2, also made its debut on the chart this week at No. 6 with 43,000 album equivalent units. 25,000 of that figure comes purely from the 35.19 million on-demand streams, and it also marks the rapper’s 12th top ten release on the Billboard 200 overall.
