Lil Baby makes a big debut on the charts.

The Atlanta rapper lands his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with My Turn. The Quality Control/Motown release, which features Lil Wayne, Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, and Future, earned 197,000 equivalent album units in its first week, with just under 10,000 in album sales.

In addition to becoming Baby’s first No. 1 on the chart, My Turn is his best week ever in terms of units earned and the biggest streaming week of 2020 for any album. The project becomes the rapper’s fourth top 10 following Street Gossip (No. 2, December 2018), Drip Harder with Gunna (No. 4, October 2018), and Harder Than Ever (No. 3, June 2018).

Bad Bunny’s YHLQMDLG debuts at No. 2 with 179,000 equivalent album units, of which 35,000 are in album sales. YHLQMDLG is the second top 10 album for the Puerto Rican superstar and the highest-charting all-Spanish album ever on the chart.

G Herbo also scores his first top 10 album with PTSD, which debuts at No. 7 with 59,000 equivalent album units (4,000 in album sales). The Chicago MC previously peaked at No. 15 in 2018 with Swervo, his collaborative project with Southside.

Roddy Ricch’s former chart-topper Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial remains at No. 5 with 63,000 units, while Justin Bieber’s Changes slides 4-6 with 62,000 units.

Elsewhere in the top 10, Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding falls 7-9 (50,000), while YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s Still Flexin, Still Steppin drops 2-10 in its second week (44,000).
