Atlanta trio Migos‘ long-awaited Yung Rich Nation album lived up to the hype and found a spot on the Billboard sales chart this week.
According to reports, the LP landed within Billboard’s Top 5.
Lil Dicky’s debut full-length album, Professional Rapper, opens atop Rap Albums (dated Aug. 22) with 22,000 copies sold in the week ending Aug. 6, according to Nielsen Music. Two steps below Lil Dicky, Migos takes the No. 3 slot with its debut album Yung Rich Nation (15,000 sold). The hip-hop trio from Atlanta charted album track “One Time” on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs earlier this year, where it peaked at No. 34 (chart dated April 11). (Billboard)
The rap crew’s album cover art landed online in late May.

The crew’s new album was initially expected to come out in late July.
Today (May 20), the group’s label, Quality Control Music, announced that YRN: Tha Album, the first retail release from the Georgians will be coming July 31, rather than the previously announced date of June 16. Instead, that earlier date will mark the launch of their Yung Rich Nation clothing line. To make up for the push-back, Migos dropped “Origin,” a kinetic single that dismisses theories about their triplet-heavy flow’s lineage and brags about a lack of body-weight exercise. (XXL Mag)
The group recently had to push back a nationwide tour from early May to July.
“Due to circumstances beyond our control we are postponing this tour until July. We want to be at our best and make sure that we give 100% during the Yung Rich Nation tour. We would also like to say ‘Thank You’ to all of our fans for their love and support.” (Statement)
