Tyler, the Creator Beats DJ Khaled for No. 1 Album


IGOR came to win.

Tyler, the Creator earns his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with his sixth solo album IGOR, which moved 165,000 equivalent album units (74,000 in album sales) in its first week. The Odd Future alum also makes history as the first solo rapper to have a No. 1 album he produced and arranged by himself.

His previous album, 2017’s Flower Boy, debuted at No. 2 with 106,000 equivalent album units, of which 70,000 were pure album sales.

Taking to Twitter, a grateful Tyler thanked his supporters. “IGOR, NUMBER UNO, STANK YOU,” he tweeted. “honestly didnt think people would enjoy this album based on alot of thing, so again, thank you, i mean it.”
