The Lil’ Baby movement has been strong over the past year in anticipation for this week. His debut album, Harder Than Ever, was released with features from Lil’ Uzi, Drake, Gunna, Offset, Young Thug, Starlito and Moneybagg Yo. Riding high off the success of the rapper’s most recent single, “Yes, Indeed”, featuring Drake, expectations were high for his first week sales. As the first week numbers continue to roll in, it appears that the Quality Control act has come through big time with 71,000 copies sold first week.
The success of Harder Than Ever is a major improvement from the rapper’s previous project, Too Hard, which debuted at #80 on the Billboard charts. With 71,000 copies sold, Lil’ Baby moves into the number three spot behind Post Malone and BTS, who moved 123,000 and 135,000 units respectively.
In comparison to his peers of the new generation, Lil’ Baby’s 71,000 units sold nearly doubles the first week of NAV, who moved 36,000 units of his new project, Reckless, this week. In addition to the overall success of his project, Lil’ Baby and Drake’s single is expected to make a major leap on the Billboard charts after debuting at #30 last week.
