‘Die Lit’ debuts at no. 3 on Billboard
This spring, Playboi Carti has been on the road with Big Sean for their Unfriendly Remember Tour. In that time, the Atlanta rapper also successfully released his surprise major debut album, Die Lit.
Well, the official first week numbers for the project have arrived this week. Carti’s Die Lit album debuts on Billboard at no. 3 with 61,000 units – with 55,000 coming from streaming album units.
He managed to scoop up 5,000 traditional album sales, which is his best week on the Billboard 200 to date. The effort served in follow-up to his 2017 self-titled mixtape, which peaked at no. 12.
Look for Carti to close out the year with Lil Uzi Vert for their 16*29 street project.
