BROCKHAMPTON's 'iridescence' will Debut at No. 1 with Virtually No Radio Support

The American Boyband has the number one album in the country.

One time for BROCKHAMPTON. According to a Billboard report, the collective of Texan titans, led by founding polyglot Kevin Abstract, will see iridescence debut at the top of the Albums 200 chart.

Released on September 21st, the band’s RCA debut has earned 101,000 equivalent album units, heavily bolstered by tour and merchandising packages, but with virtually no radio play. It states that the album had only picked up about 1,500 spins at the time of publishing. In the weeks following the album’s release, three singles (“J’OUVERT,” “SAN MARCOS,” and “NEW ORLEANS”) have been treated to visuals. See those below.

iridescence follows the group’s SATURATION trilogy and marks its first without rapper Ameer Vann, who left the collective after lying about his involvement with a woman that accused him of sexual misconduct.
