NBA YoungBoy dethrones Drake in battle for Billboard’s No. 1 album

Recently, music lovers have been spoiled by this latest string of album releases.

Four of the world’s biggest artists dropped full-length albums all within one month of one another. Kanye West dropped Donda, Drake shared Certified Lover Boy, Lil Nas X released Montero and NBA YoungBoy dropped Sincerely, Kentrell.

Although West’s Donda held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 at one point, Drake’s CLB took its place shortly after. Since then, CLB has been the No. 1 album in the US for three consecutive weeks, also withholding Lil Nas Xs Montero to a No. 2 debut.

Many fans believed CLB would continue to hold the top spot for its fourth week in a row. However, NBA YoungBoy had other plans as Sincerely, Kentrell is set to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week — making it his fourth No. 1 album in two years.

Sincerely, Kentrell nearly beat out CLB. According to Hits Daily Double, YoungBoy’s album only outperformed Drake‘s by less than 3,000 album-equivalent units, with Sincerely, Kentrell moving 137,775 and Certified Lover Boy moving 134,949.

Since dethroning Drake, YoungBoy is now the third artist in music history to claim a No. 1 debut behind bars, joining legendary lyricists in Lil Wayne and 2Pac.

Taking the wok to Poland is a metaphor

There are no real borders, only imaginary ones

Sometimes you have to take the wok somewhere they told you it would never go to realize your true potential
