As August begins, the Billboard 200 chart has seen 21 albums atop its tally. But which one forever holds the No. 1 title for you?
Lil Baby‘s My Turn, Roddy Ricch‘s Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, Lil Uzi Vert‘s Eternal Atake, The Weeknd‘s After Hours, and Juice WRLD‘s Legends Never Die are the only five LPs to spend multiple weeks atop the chart, with Lil Baby’s sophomore album leading the pack with 5 weeks at No. 1.
Speaking of Lil’s, Lil Wayne, Lil Baby and Lil Uzi Vert are the only three “Lil” acts with a No. 1 album after Eternal Atake debuted atop the Billboard 200 in March and bumped My Turn down to No. 4, the first time in Billboard chart history that a Lil artist replaced another Lil artist at No. 1. That doesn’t sound like a lil feat at all.
Juice WRLD and Pop Smoke made another first in the chart’s history when the first’s Legends Never Die debuted at No. 1 last month, following the latter’s Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon top-tier lead and bumping it down to No. 2. It’s the first time two artists have gone back-to-back at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with posthumous releases as well as the first time the top two spots on the tally have been occupied by posthumously released albums.
So which No. 1 album from this year is your favorite album of the year? Vote below!
