Kodak Black Tops The Charts With First No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 With 'Dying to Live'
Rapper Kodak Black scores his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, as Dying to Live debuts atop the tally.
The set, which was released on Dec. 14 via Dollaz N Dealz/Atlantic Records, earned 89,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Dec. 20, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 5,000 were in traditional album sales -- as the bulk of the album’s units were driven by streaming activity.
Dying to Live’s opening frame is largely pushed by streams, as the set garnered 82,000 SEA units, which translates to 114.2 million on-demand audio streams for the album’s tracks during the tracking week (which also makes Dying the most-streamed album of the week).
This marks the South Florida rapper’s third Top 10 debut (Project Baby 2 debuting at no. 2 and Painting Pictures at no. 3). Congrats!
