Pusha T has earned his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with his new project, It’s Almost Dry. The album sold an estimated 55,000 total album-equivalent units since releasing on on April 22.
Push celebrated the accomplishment on Twitter, Sunday: “We all can’t be number 1 at the same time, this week it’s mine. Thank you to all.”
While landing on top of the charts, the It’s Almost Dry failed to outpace Push’s 2018 record, DAYTONA, which sold 77,000 total album-equivalent units after its debut.
Push has now had three albums debut inside the top five on the Billboard 200, including 2013’s My Name Is My Name.
Speaking with Complex recently, Push discussed his growth in popularity: “This is all about making sure that the subgenre of street rap is seen at the highest levels, and can compete with everything that’s popular.”
Production on the 12-track project is split between Pharrell Williams and Kanye West, who also appear as featured guests in addition to Kid Cudi, JAY-Z, Lil Uzi Vert, Don Toliver, Malice and Labrinth.
