Roddy Ricch scores his first No. 1 album on Billboard’s 200 chart with his debut studio album Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial.
According to Billboard, the rapper put up impressive numbers. With 101,000 equivalent album units earned, Roddy Rich outsold pop queen Camilla Cabello for Billboard’s top spot. Of the 101,000 units, the 98,000 SEA units equal 130.7 million on-demand audio streams. The total also includes 3,000 in album sales and just under 1,000 in TEA units.
The West-Coast rapper also earned his first Grammy nominations, scoring three nods for the upcoming 2020 ceremony. During an interview with Los Angeles Times, Roddy Ricch calls the nominations a blessing.
“I don’t really know, but it’s a blessing, really, that the Grammys would even consider our writing abilities in the song to be among the greatest in the game. I just know that I’m supposed to be here, because if I wasn’t I wouldn’t be. I feel like my mom’s prayers worked.” says Roddy Ricch.
Roddy Ricch is followed by The Who with their latest album Who earning the no. 2 spot. Camilla Cabello ranks at No. 3 with her sophomore album Romance earning 86,000 album units. Both Juice WRLD and XXXtentacion make appearances in the top ten. XXXtentacion’s second and final posthumous release Bad Vibes Forever debuts at No. 5. Following his sudden, tragic death, Juice WRLD’s Goodbye & Good Riddance and Death Race for Love hold spots six and 10 respectively.
