Relative newcomer Mulatto‘s first bid to become Queen of Billboard charts came courtesy of her August 21-released debut album, ‘Queen of Da Souf.’
Fans most familiar with the femcee’s rise to fame know she first garnered national attention as the winner of Lifetime’s reality music competition ‘The Rap Game’ before going Gold with her breakthrough single, ‘B*tch from Da Souf’ (which was later remixed with Saweetie and Trina).
Just days after being named one of only 2 female rappers included in XXL’s coveted ‘Freshman Class’ list for 2020, the femcee (born Alyssa Stephens) released ‘Queen’ to stellar reviews from critics and fans.
Now, with its inaugural tracking week behind her, it’s been revealed where the RCA set premiered on the Billboard 200.
