Hip Hop Album Sales: Quavo's "Quavo Huncho" Catapults To No. 2 On Billboard 200

Migos fans were probably surprised when Quavo’s inaugural solo album, Quavo Huncho, didn’t even crack the Top 50 on last week’s Billboard 200 chart. But, that’s because he released it too early on Thursday (October 11) so technically sales counted for the week ending October 11.

This week is a different story. Now that the project has been out for awhile, Quavo Huncho has catapulted from No. 66 to No. 2 for the week ending October 18.

Elsewhere on the chart, Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V maintained its No. 3 spot while Usher and Zaytoven’s joint A EP, Shy Glizzy’s Fully Loaded project and Ella Mai’s self-titled R&B album made their debuts.

That’s Better

After debuting at No. 66 last week, Quavo’s Quavo Huncho has bounced back to land at No. 2. Boasting 99,087 total album equivalent units, 5,984 pure album sales and a streaming count of 121,025,561, the project’s numbers this week more accurately reflect the Migos rapper’s popularity.

Quavo Huncho serves as the Atlanta native’s first official solo album. Last year, he dropped Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho with Travis Scott. Upon its release, the collaborative project debuted at No. 3 with roughly 90,000 total album equivalent units sold.
