UPDATE: NBA YoungBoy’s Richest Opp enters the Billboard 200 at No. 4 with 51,000 equivalent album units sold, of which 74 million streams make up nearly all of the sum. Doesn’t quite meet the projections but YoungBoy officially ties Drake and Future for the third most top 10 albums among rappers in US history (15 each). Only Jay-Z and Nas have more with 16 each.

NBA YoungBoy ‘Richest Opp’ Album First Week Sales Projections

NBA YoungBoy released his third album of the year ‘Richest Opp’ on Friday (May 12). Although the project was released less than a month after his previous album Don’t Try This At Home, “Richest Opp” is on course for a more than respectable performance on the chart, a testament to NBA YoungBoy’s strengths and ever growing fan base.

According to early projections, the 17-track effort is expected to sell 51k-58k units in its first week. While those numbers fall short of Don’t Try This At Home, which moved 60K equivalent album units, “Richest Opp” is predicted to have a top 5 debut on the Billboard 200 next week.

YoungBoy is also expected to tie Drake and Future for the third most top 10 albums among rappers in US history (15 each). Only Jay-Z and Nas have more with 16 each.

Leading to the release of Richest Opp, YoungBoy Never Broke Again reignited his beef with Lil Durk, who was rumored to be releasing his album “Almost Healed” on the same day. Fans of both MCs were anticipating a streaming war, but Durk ended up pushing back his album to the excitement of YB.

“Richest Opp” also included the controversial song “F-ck The Industry Pt. 2,” which had YB taking shots at Drake, J. Cole and Lil Yachty. He revealed Drake refused to collaborate with him because the Canadian prefers Lil Durk.
