YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s ‘Last Slimeto’ Takes First Place on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart

The prolific rapper earns his second No. 1 of 2022 and third in the last 12 months.

YoungBoy Never Broke Again lands his seventh No. 1 project on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart as The Last Slimeto debuts in the top slot of the chart dated Aug. 20. The set, released Aug. 5, earned 108,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Aug. 11, according to Luminate.

Of the 108,000 units, almost all – 103,500 – come from streaming-equivalent album units. The sum equals 161.9 million official on-demand streams of the album’s songs, making it the week’s most streamed album across all genres. 4,500 units derive from traditional album sales, with a negligible amount owed to track-equivalent album units. (One unit equals the following levels of consumption: one album sale, 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams for a song on the album.)


Slimeto extends the 22-year-old rapper’s prolific release schedule and success rate. The new champ is his 18th effort to reach the chart, a run that began one week short of five years ago, when AI Youngboy debuted on the Aug. 20, 2017, list. Slimeto is also his second No. 1 of 2022 and third in the past 12 months.

As Slimeto seals its No. 1 status, here’s a recap of all seven of YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s champs on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. (Each project posted one week at No. 1.)

  • AI Youngboy 2, Oct. 26, 2019
  • Still Flexin, Still Steppin, March 7, 2020
  • 38 Baby 2, May 9, 2020
  • Top, Sept. 26, 2020
  • Sincerely, Kentrell, Oct. 9, 2021
  • Colors, Feb. 5, 2022
  • The Last Slimeto, Aug. 20, 2022

Elsewhere, Slimeto also arrives at No. 1 on Top Rap Albums, likewise securing the rapper’s seventh leader, and at No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard 200.

Thanks to the big album arrival, YoungBoy Never Broke Again counts 17 songs on the 50-position Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart this week, rewriting his personal best. He’d previously logged 15 simultaneous appearances on the Sept. 26, 2020, chart and again on Oct. 9, 2021.

“Umm Hmm” leads the pack with a No. 11 debut, which traces to its standing as the week’s most-streamed Slimeto track (11.4 million official on-demand streams.) The sum yields a No. 6 start on R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs and a No. 12 start on the overall Streaming Songs roll.

Here’s an account of all 17 of the rapper’s placements this week:

  • No. 11, “Umm Hmm”
  • No. 13, “I Know”
  • No. 14, “Home Ain’t Home,” featuring Rod Wave
  • No. 19, “Vette Motors”
  • No. 20, “F*ck Da Industry”
  • No. 23, “Free Dem 5’s”
  • No. 25, “Lost Soul Survivor”
  • No. 28, “Hold Your Own”
  • No. 30, “Top Sound”
  • No. 32, “Kamikaze”
  • No. 34, “My Time”
  • No. 38, “7 Days”

  • No. 41, “Digital”
  • No. 45, “Stay the Same”
  • No. 48, “Proof”
  • No. 50, “Swerving”

The 16 new entries (“Vette Motors” had previously reached the chart) bring YoungBoyNever Broke Again to 116 career charted hits on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. He now ranks eighth on the leaderboard for the most appearances since the list began as an all-encompassing genre chart in 1958. Drake leads the pack, with 293, and YoungBoy Never Broke Again is the 12th artist to cross the triple-digit threshold.
