Childish Gambino album sales rose by 419 percent last week, Billboard reports, after the artist hosted Saturday Night Live and dropped his internet-breaking video for “This Is America.”

Three of Gambino’s albums have re-entered the Billboard 200 chart: “Awaken, My Love!” from 2016 (which gave us the star’s other smash-hit, “Redbone”) is now at No. 45 on the list, thanks to a 156 percent rise, or 12,000 equivalent album units earned (a combination of streaming, song downloads, and physical album sales); 2013’s Because the Internet sits at No. 61, earning 10,000 units, an increase of 178 percent; and 2011’s Camp has returned to the list at No. 197, with 5,000 units, an increase of 174 percent.

Gambino’s entire discography of albums sold 11,000 copies last week, up from just over 2,000 the week before. Unsurprisingly, there was a spike in streaming, too. Gambino’s songs amassed 102.7 million clicks last week, up 487 percent, a figure that includes an insane 65.3 million streams for “This Is America” alone. Even discounting “This is America”, Gambino’s music still had an impressive 114 percent rise in streams.
