Written by on May 10, 2021

Another No. 1.

DJ Khaled lands his third leader on the Billboard 200 as his 12th studio album Khaled Khaled debuts in the top spot. The star-studded set, which features appearances from Drake, Cardi B, and Justin Bieber, opens with 93,000 equivalent album units earned, of which 14,000 were in album sales.

Khaled previously topped the chart with 2017’s Grateful and 2016’s Major Key. His previous album, 2019’s Father of Asahd, debuted at No. 2 behind Tyler, the Creator’s Igor.

“Billboard Billi” was overcome with emotion upon learning that he was No. 1. “I cried many nights. Tears of JOY and Pain making this album. Everyone’s beautiful word really touched my heart. God is Great!” he wrote. “#KHALEDKHALED #1 album in the country.”

Last week’s leader, Moneybagg Yo’s A Gangsta’s Pain, drops to No. 2 in its second week with 70,000 equivalent album units, while Justin Bieber’s Justice rises 5-4 (42,000). Young Thug’s Slime Language 2 compilation falls 2-5 (40,000) and Rod Wave’s SoulFly holds at No. 6 (35,000).

Elsewhere in the top 10, Pop Smoke’s former No. 1 Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon rises 10-8 (32,000) and The Weeknd’s After Hours slips 7-9 (32,000).
