Ohio rapper Trippie Redd has some serious bragging rights at this moment. The hip-hop star’s new A Love Letter to You 4 has demolished its competition with major first-week sales.
After seven days of availability, Trippie’s new LP managed to push out over 100,000 copies.
There are four debuts in the Top Six on this week’s chart, led by #1 Trippie Redd (Ten Thousand/Caroline) with 102k+ and Broken Bow’s Jason Aldean with 85k. Atlantic’s Coldplay and YMN Melly bow at #5 and #6, respectively. Disney’s Frozen 2 ST has a predictably animated jump from #15-3 as the movie hits screens on this holiday weekend.

Initial estimates had the project expected to narrowly miss the sales chart’s top spot.
Based on the earliest glance at the tea leaves, Broken Bow‘s Jason Aldean is expected to take this week’s #1 spot with a likely battle for runner-up. Coldplay (Parlophone/Atlantic) and Ten Thousand/Caroline‘s Trippie Redd were both forecast pre-release to finish the week somewhere close to 80k. Trippie is now expected to come in over 100k. Could the Ohio rapper trip up the Brit band and land at #2? (HITS Daily Double)
Earlier this month, Redd blessed fans with his new “Who Needs Love” music video premiere.
