Playboi Carti’s ‘Whole Lotta Red’ Debuts at No. 1

Playboi Carti is ringing in the new year with a No. 1 album.

The Atlanta rapper earns his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with his sophomore album Whole Lotta Red. The Christmas Day release, which features Kanye West, Kid Cudi, and Future, opens with 100,000 equivalent album units, of which album sales comprise 10,000.

Carti’s debut album Die Lit peaked at No. 3 and has moved 1.1 million equivalent album units since its May 2018 release. Prior to that, his 2017 self-titled mixtape reached No. 12 on the Billboard 200.

Taking to Twitter, a grateful Carti thanked his fans. “!!!!! wTF . wE r # 1 > mY fANs,” he tweeted.
