Travi$ Scott has something he can sing about. The rapper-producer nabbed his first No. 1 album of his career. His latest project, Birds in the Trap Sing Mcknight, premiered atop the Billboard 200 chart this week.
The collection, which dropped exclusively on iTunes and Apple Music on Sept. 2, moved 88,000 copies last week. Of that sales total, 53,000 were from traditional album sales. The LP also garnered 50 million streams in its first week of release.
Birds in the Trap features a star-studded guest list of artists including Kid Cudi, Kendrick Lamar, The Weekdn, Young Thug, Blac Youngsta and others. Among the standout tracks on the album include "the ends," which features a stellar guest verse from the reclusive Andre 3000, and "Goosebumps."
