Lil Baby’s ‘My Turn’ Hits 100 Weeks in Top 10 of Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart

The new honor comes just weeks ahead of the rapper's upcoming album, It's Only Me.

Lil Baby’s My Turn hits the century mark in the top 10 of Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, becoming the first album to log 100 weeks inside the top tier since the chart began in 1965.

My Turn captures its 100th nonconsecutive frame in the region with a 12-9 ascent on the list dated Oct. 1. It earned 22,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 22, according to Luminate, a 4% increase from the previous week.

My Turn, released on Feb. 28, 2020, spent six weeks at No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, and finished as the year-end No. 1 album on the annual chart recap. Its longevity was supported by five top 10 hits on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart: “Woah” (No. 7), “Sum 2 Prove” (No. 9), “Heatin Up,” with Gunna (No. 10), “We Paid,” with 42 Dugg (No. 8) and The Bigger Picture (No. 3).

With 100 weeks in the top 10, My Turn extends its record as the album with the most weeks in the top 10 of Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. It moves further ahead of previous recordholder, and now silver medalist, Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding, which has collected 89 weeks in the top 10. (My Turn overtook Hollywood’s Bleeding in April and has since remained in front.) Bleeding, in turn, took the record from two other Post Malone titles: his debut LP, Stoney, and sophomore effort, beerbongs & bentleys, each with 77 weeks in the top 10. Michael Jackson’s Thriller, whose 76 weeks was the benchmark since 1984, rounds out the top five.

Here’s a recap of the albums with the most weeks in the top 10 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart:

Weeks in Top 10, Title, Artist, Year(s) in Top 10
100, My Turn, Lil Baby, 2020-22
89, Hollywood’s Bleeding, Post Malone, 2019-22
77, Stoney, Post Malone, 2016-18
77, beerbongs & bentleys, Post Malone, 2018-19
76, Thriller, Michael Jackson, 1983-84
70, Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon, Pop Smoke, 2020-22
64, Whitney Houston, Whitney Houston, 1985-86
63, The E.N.D., The Black Eyed Peas, 2009-10
61, After Hours, The Weeknd, 2020-21
59, The Heist, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, 2012-14

Notably, half of the list above comprises albums released in the last five years, reflecting a shift in the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart’s methodology in recent years. Beginning with the list dated Feb. 11, 2017, the chart switched from ranking by only sales to multi-metric consumption, a figure represented by equivalent album units that includes traditional album sales and track sales and official streams from an album’s songs.

As such, listeners’ repeated streams contribute to the album’s ranking each week, whereas for pre-streaming releases, the most popular consumption method then – album sales – contributed to an album’s chart position for only that single week.
