New Jersey rapper Fetty Wap has plenty to brag about this fall after dominating the sales chart with his self-titled debut.
According to reports, Wap’s standout release sold over 100,000 copies in its opening week.
Rapper Fetty Wap crowns the Billboard 200 albums chart, as his self-titled debut studio album opens at No. 1. The set, which was released Sept. 25 through RGF/300 Entertainment, earned 129,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Oct. 1, according to Nielsen Music. Fetty Wap leads a busy week on the chart, where a total of seven albums debut in the top 10. (Billboard)
Teaming up with NPR.org, Wap treated fans to an early stream of his self-titled debut album last month.
Over 20 songs it stays true. That abundance is thoughtful, collecting as it does the heat that’s been floating around, the singles with industry muscle behind them, seven songs produced by Peoples, seven featuring Fetty’s right hand, Monty, almost all of which were recorded and redone in Clifton, New Jersey, nowhere expensive. He’s been making this music for himself and it turns out it’s good to us, too. (NPR)
The overnight rap star’s official full studio release tracklisting surfaced online in early September.
Fetty’s unleashed his must-see debut album artwork to the masses across Twitter in August.
