21 Savage Debuts At No. 1 With “I Am > I Was”

“I Am > I Was” is 21 Savage’s 1st album to garner top spot on the Billboard 200.

21 Savage earned his first number one album this week with “I Am > I Was.” The sophomore effort, helping 21 to new heights, produced a respectable 131,000 albums sold (equivalent units) in its first week to beat out competition from , whose Hoodie SZN defied expectations by placing second in Billboard’s weekly roundup.

Theoretically, I Am > I Was isn’t even 21 Savage’s second project of note, as some would consider the “non-studio” projects with  and  to be just engrossing. But I Am > I Was is “by a long shot” the first commercial yield of this magnitude, far surpassing his Issa debut. A series of songs of this album have already gone into wider circulation, without his intervention.

Even LeBron James recycled lyrics from “asmr” for a social media post that was negatively received by a scrutinous public. Both men would eventually apologize for their insensitivity. But otherwise, “I Am > I Was” has been a complete godsend for 21 Savage’s career, especially considering there was a point where he was questioning everything about himself, much less his musical career.

Aside from 21 Savage and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie who climbed to 1 and 2 respectively, top honors on the Billboard 200 primarily went to holiday-themed albums from the likes of Michael Bublé and Nat King Cole, among others.
