Funeral, which released via Young Money Records/Republic Records, is Wayne’s 13th solo studio album. Debuting at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 Chart, the LP joins 2018’s Tha Carter V, 2011’s Tha Carter IV, 2010’s I Am Not a Human Being, and 2008’s Tha Carter III as his fifth album to be recognized with such an achievement.
Upon releasing on January 31, Funeral earned 139,000 equivalent album units in its first week of availability, with 99,000 coming from streams and 40,000 from physical copies. The album boasts 24 tracks, with features from the likes of Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Lil Baby, The-Dream, Jay Rock, Takeoff, Adam Levine, O.T. Genasis, and Lil Twist. The eighth song, “Bing James,” is notably a tribute to Kobe Bryant, ending with a 24-second moment of silence.
