Travis Scott’s Jack Boys Album Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart
The new LP, which features label artists Sheck Wes, Don Toliver and Chase B, was released on Dec. 27. In the week since its release, the album has accumulated 154,000 equivalent album sales, reports Billboard on Sunday (Jan. 5). The total includes 79,000 traditional album sales.
The feat is even more impressive considering Jack Boys only contains seven songs including the "Highest in the Room (Remix)." Other rappers on the year-end project include Young Thug, Lil Baby, Offset, Quavo, Pop Smoke and more. The release was also accompanied by a short film co-directed by Cactus Jack and White Trash Tyler.
