New York rapper Cardi B is 100 percent here for The Big Day. The Big Apple native has co-signed Chance The Rapper‘s newly released solo effort.
Cardi went to Instagram Monday to give the Chicago rap artist a huge salute.
Chance’s new studio release landed at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The Big Day, Chance’s highest charting and third Top 10 album, debuted with 108,000 units. About 80,000 of those were in streams, which made Chance’s album the most-streamed album of the week. Notably, The Big Day did not reach streaming services until around 1:00 p.m. Eastern on Friday, July 26. (Most albums hit DSPs at midnight Eastern on Fridays.) Chance did, however, make his album available to pre-order on his website beginning on June 28. (Pitchfork)
The Big Day fell behind fellow rapper NF‘s new The Search album on the sales chart.
NF’s The Search ended up garnering 130,000 album equivalent units, enough to get him to the top spot ahead of Chance, which garnered 108,000 album equivalent units. Both artists utilised album/merchandise bundles and concert ticket/album bundles, a common practise when looking to boost a record’s chart position. (The FADER)
The hip-hop superstar is currently gearing up for a nationwide tour in support of the LP.
