Logic’s new project “Bobby Tarantino II” debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 chart. This is the artist’s second #1 on Billboard. Released on March 9 through Def Jam, the mixtape earned 119,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 15. 32,000 of those were from traditional sales.
The second chart topper was earned by Logic in less than one full calendar year. In May of 2017, the rapper’s last album “Everybody” also debuted at the top of Billboard’s album chart. The move up top for the latest album is thanks largely due to streaming. And although “Everybody” gained larger numbers in it’s first week, “Bobby Tarantino II” had more streams this time around.
According to BIllboard:
Bobby Tarantino II’s debut was powered mostly by streams, as the album launches with 82,000 SEA units (equaling 123 million on-demand audio streams for the album’s tracks in the week ending March 15; each SEA unit equals 1,500 on-demand audio streams). With 32,000 copies of the album sold, the remainder of the title’s equivalent units was generated by TEA units (5,000).
Prior to these chart-topping albums, Logic’s original “Bobby Tarantino” debuted at #12 back in 2016.
