The end of the year 2018 was a good one for 21 Savage. His album “I Am > I Was” was number one on the Billboard 200 chart. The artist started 2019 with a similar spirit. He has been at the same position for two consecutive weeks.
The Atlanta rapper sold a total of 65,000 copies of the album in the second week of its release. This is a decrease of 51% from its debut week. However, as there has been no significant launch since the beginning of the year, it remained at number one. This is because we are no longer in the Christmas season and no new albums premiered in the current Top 10 of the chart. It features compilations that dominated the Billboard 200 in 2018. For instance, Post Malone’s “Beerbongs & Bentleys” is at number four, Drake’s “Scorpio” is at the sixth position and “Astroworld” by Travis Scott is at number seven.
A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s “Hoodie SZN” also followed the lead of 21 Savage. It remained at the second position on the chart for two consecutive weeks. While some may complain about a lack of excitement for the opening of 2019, it is very likely that the Billboard 200 chart will be stagnant next week as well.
