Q holding the TorcH on tHat CHart.
Hip hop is rising to the occasion as it has been taking the lead in the charts! Though Drake holds the No.1 spot for his album Views, ScHoolboy Q is not far behind in second place with his debut project Blank Face LP.
The album was and is super tight! If you haven’t had the chance to hear it yet, be sure to make sure that you do, because this was an incredible piece of work by the rapper. Q really revolutionized his sound, and incorporated some really sweet features and appearances to compliment his tracks with the familiar heavy rap verses he’s known to deliver.
He released the album last week on July 14th, and as soon as it dropped the number of streams spiked up. Only Blink 182 had the ability to even just put a tiny bruise into Drake’s winning spot on the charts, but it was almost punctured by Q’s release of his LP! Views has been the reigning heavy-weight champion since April, but the South Central LA rapper shook things up for the Champagne Papi with his fourth full-length mixed and mastered production. How did it reach the top? According to sources, Blank Face LP made claimed its territory on the Sales Plus Streaming rankings. If you look at the image below, you will see the HITS Daily Double has displayed a report of the list of winners and in just the first week of release, Q was able to have 77,143 copies of his album moved! Drake’s Views stretches so far as 88,436. Though this ranking for Q does not compare to his last album, Oxymoron, which was able to reach numbers as high as 139,000 copies in just the first week and reaching No. 1 in 2014, it is still a high honor to be where he is now with his debut.
