Tyler, the Creator‘s fifth full-length album IGOR has topped the Billboard 200 chart, beating out DJ Khaled‘s Father of Asahd. According to Nielsen Music, IGOR garnered 165,000 equivalent units, made up of 74,000 “pure sales,” and more than 122 million streams.
While IGOR is his first number one album, Tyler’s previous studio albums have all made the top 10. 2011’s Goblin, hit number five; 2013’s Wolf went to number three; Cherry Bomb in 2015 placed fourth; while Flower Boy in 2017 went closest to the top, debuting at number two, finishing only 1,000 units off Lana Del Rey’s Lust for Life.
DJ Khaled was hoping to secure his third chart-topper this weekend but took second place to IGOR. According to Pitchfork, Father of Asahd sold 136,000 equivalent units.
