The NOLA rapper’s thirteenth studio album is expected to debut atop of Billboard’s 200 chart this week.
Lil Wayne is back on the charts.
According to Billboard, the rapper’s new album, Funeral, will debut at No.1 on its 200 chart for albums this week. Anchored by roughly 139,000 equivalent album units sold (with 72% arriving by way of streams,) Funeral is the NOLA rapper’s fifth album to hit No. 1 and his 12th project to enter the top 10 in its first week. It may also be the first album to land on top of the chart with 24 seconds of silence built into its runtime (dedicated to the late Kobe Bryant.)
Funeral was announced just a week before its January 31st arrival and featured appearances from Big Sean, Lil Baby, 2 Chainz, Jay Rock, The-Dream, and more. In a victory lap outing, Wayne joined The Roots last week to perform the album cut “Dreams.” Though there’s already one date in the book, a tour in support of the album is expected to be announced.
