DJ Khaled’s ‘Grateful’ Album Lands No. 1 Spot on Billboard 200
Khaled's Grateful moved 149,000 copies in its first week of results. Of the 149,000 total, 50,000 were traditional album sales.
Grateful features a virtual who's who list of music industry luminaries, including Drake, Chance The Rapper, JAY-Z, Justin Bieber, Quavo, Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Bryson Tiller, Travis Scott, Nas, Future and more. Powered by the singles like "Shining," and the platinum selling "I'm the One," it was clear Grateful was going to be a hit as soon as it dropped—and it was.
Now the question is, how long will it take for Khaled's newest album to go gold or platinum? If it keeps selling at this rate, not very. To celebrate the occasion, Khaled uploaed a video of himself dancing to his Instagram account.
"Mood !!! ANOTHER ONE!!!!!! #GRATEFUL DEBUTS #1 on @billboard ! @wethebestmusic !!! @rocnation !!! @epicrecords !!! THIS WIN IS FOR MY SON ! @asahdkhaled !! I will give my thank you speech on Monday !! Let's celebrate MORE WINS!! GOD IS THE GREATEST!!! FAN LUV ! WE DID IT! #billboard #BILLI," Khaled wrote in the caption for the post. Stay tuned for his thank-you speech, since he said it's coming today (July 3).
