One week after his tragic death, Nipsey Hussle’s “Victory Lap” album has reached a new peak on the Billboard 200. His Grammy-nominated album made its way to the No. 2 spot after millions made their way to streaming services to listen to his music.
The album earned 66,000 equivalent album units, with 17,000 of those being from pure album sales. This marks a new height for Nip’s album since it originally debuted and peaked at No. 4 last March. “Victory Lap” was Nipsey Hussle’s official debut under a major label and earned him the nomination for Rap Album Of The Year.
The only album to beat out Hussle’s was Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, which debuted with 313,000 equivalent album units in the United States.
