Fetty Wap’s self-titled debut album has landed at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
The project, which was released on September 25 through RGF/300 Entertainment, sold 129,000 equivalent album units in the week ending October 1, according to Billboard, citing Nielsen Music.
The aforementioned figure is comprised of 75,000 in pure album sales, while the remaining 54,000 comes from streams.
Fetty’s #1 album follows a string of successful singles off the project. The Paterson, N.J. artist achieved three Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 this summer with “Trap Queen,” “679” and “My Way” peaking at #2, #6, and #7 respectively.
Fetty becomes the first hip-hop artist to see his debut studio album gain No. 1 status on the Billboard 200 since A$AP Rocky’s LONG.LIVE.A$AP, which debuted atop the chart in 2012, selling 138,000 copies during its first week.
