A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s ‘Hoodie SZN’ Album Returns to No. 1 on Billboard 200
Boogie's latest offering earned 47,000 equivalent album sales in the last week, moving it from the No. 3 spot to the No. 1 slot. The Highbridge artist can thank his streaming numbers for the total. Of the units gained, the overwhelming majority, 45,000, were in SEA units. That equals out to 68.4 million on-demand audio streams of all the LP's tracks. This is Boogie's third time topping the charts with this album despite modest sales numbers. It also topped the chart on Jan. 19 and Jan. 26.
Other artists in the top 10 include 21 Savage, whose I Am > I Was offering jumps from No. 8 to No. 2. Future’s Future Hndrxx Presents: The Wizrd album slides one spot from No. 2 to No. 3. After looking like it was about to bow out of the top 10, Travis Scott's Astroworld had a resurgence, moving from No. 9 back into the No. 4 spot. The 6, 7, 8 and 10 slots belong to Post Malone (Beerbongs and Bentleys), Meek Mill (Championships), Drake (Scorpion) and Kodak Black (Dying to Live), respectively.
Boogie stopped by XXL back in December to talk about his Hoodie SZN project. "The album Hoodie SZN is about the result of where I come from, it gave me this black heart," he told us.
The LP features Offset, 6ix9ine, Young Thug, Quando Rondo and more, and production from T-Minus, Kenny Beats, London on da Track and others.
