Pop Smoke has scored his first chart-topping effort.

The set moved 251,000 equivalent album units in its first week with 59,000 in traditional sales. It is the sixth biggest week in 2020 and the third largest Hip Hop album. (The Weeknd’s After Hours, Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake, Eminem’s Music To Be Murdered By).

It bows with 268.44 million on-demand streams the fourth largest streaming week of the year with only being surpassed by Lil Uzi Vert’s first two weeks of Eternal Atake and Drake’s Dark Lane Demo Tape‘s opening week.

It is also the first posthumous album since December 2018, which follows XXXTentacion’s Skins. Pop Smoke and XXXTentacion are two of four Hip-Hop artists with posthumous No. 1s., which include The Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac, who each have three posthumous leaders.
