From announcement to official launch, Quavo (of the chart-topping rap trio Migos) gave fans little time to prepare for the premiere of ‘Quavo Huncho,’ his official debut solo album.
Yet, despite its bevy of top-named co-stars (see: Madonna, Drake, Cardi B, and more), the project was catapulted to chart battle on the backs of featureless singles ‘Workin Me,’ ‘Bubble Gum,’ and ‘Lamb Talk’…to little talk or buzz from rap lovers.
The absence of hype didn’t stop its chart triumph, however. Officially debuting at #66 last week on a technicality, its first full tracking week has ended and sees it zoom to #1 on rap charts. Unable to unseat Lady Gaga‘s ‘Star Is Born’ soundtrack from the top of the Billboard 200, ‘Quavo Huncho’ makes an impressive #2 debut on the overall album charts.
In the runner-up slot on the new Billboard 200, Quavo’s Quavo Huncho zooms from No. 66 to No. 2, following its first full tracking week of activity. The Migos member’s debut solo album earned 99,000 units in the frame ending Oct. 18, with 6,000 of that sum coming from album sales. A week ago, the album premiered from a partial day of activity, as the album was released on Thursday, Oct. 11 (the final day of the previous chart week’s tracking week), entering with 11,000 units.
