"Wunna" earns Gunna his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.

Gunna leaps from No. 84 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated June 6) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for the first time.

He leads the list on the strength of his new sophomore LP Wunna, which opens at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 111,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Gunna previously peaked at No. 10 on the Artist 100 in March 2019, when his prior LP Drip or Down 2 launched at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
