Young Thug’s mixtape debuts at No. 8 on the Billboard 200, selling 37,000 units (18,000 traditional) in its first week of availability.
The 10-track project, which features Travis Scott, Gucci Mane, and Wyclef Jean, among others, only adds to Thug’s already-impressive year.
In fact, this is Thug’s third debut in the top 40 this year, reports Billboard, and his second in the top 10. February’s I’m Up entered the chart and No. 22 and Slime Season 3, released at the end of March, debuted at No. 7. Like both of those, it’s been relatively unclear whether one should refer to JEFFERY as an album or as a mixtape; the term “commercial mixtape” seems to be what’s sticking.
If you had to pick one, what’s the essential Thug project of 2016? Sound off below.
