A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie Scores First No. 1 Album With ‘Hoodie SZN’
Congrats are in order for A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. The Bronx rapper earned his first No. 1 album of his career.
According to a report Billboard published Monday (Jan. 14), A Boogie’s second project Hoodie SZN has just topped the Billboard 200 album after moving 58,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. last week. Most of the sales were driven largely by streaming activity.
Of the 58,000 equivalent album units, 56,000 coming from streaming equivalent album units (equaling 83 million on-demand audio streams for the album’s 20 tracks), 1,000 from track equivalent units and 1,000 from traditional album sales.
To celebrate the accomplishment, "Startender" rhymer jumped onto his Twitter account to post a message. "Numero UNO...THE TOP FEELS SO GOOD!!!," he tweeted along with the hashtags #BRONXBABY, #HIGHBRIDGE and #NUMBER1."
While the LP has already grabbed a bunch of success, A Boogie is still promoting his album. The 23-year-old artist recently dropped a video for his heartfelt tune "4 Min Convo (Favorite Song)."
The new LP is one that puts together A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie's musical versatility and his knack for melody. It's also one that sees the rapper delve into his life experiences.
"The album Hoodie SZN is about the result of where I come from, it gave me this black heart," he told XXL last year. "And the black heart represents depression."
Well, having a No. 1 album in the country is definitely a great pick-me-up for the rhymer.
