After finally releasing his debut album, Issa Album, the first week numbers for 21 Savage’s latest project are in and they’re better than expected.

Originally projected to sell between 50,000 and 60,000 copies, 21 Savage’s album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 77,000 album equivalent units, 22,000 of which came from traditional sales.

Ahead of Issa Album is JAY-Z’s 4:44, while Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. and DJ Khaled’s Grateful sit at No. 3 and No. 4, marking the first time in four years that four hip-hop albums hold the top four spots on the Billboard 200 chart.

The 14-track album features production from DJ Mustard, Jake One, Metro Boomin, Southside, Pi’erre Bourne and even 21 Savage himself. Issa Album is in stores now.
