Lil Yachty’s long-awaited debut album, Teenage Emotions, was released a week ago Friday (May 26) — and despite his current superstar status — Bryson Tiller was able to blow Lil Boat out of the water with True To Self, which dropped as an early surprise the same day.

True To Self debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart with total sales of 106,570, marking the Kentucky native’s first #1 album. Kendrick Lamar’s critically acclaimed fourth studio album, DAMN., is holding steady in the #2 slot while Drake’s More Life and Lil Yachty’s aforementioned album hit the #4 and #5 slot, respectively.

Bryson Tiller Lands First #1 Album

Since releasing his 2015 debut, Trapsoul, Bryson Tiller’s star has only gotten brighter. In June 2016, he was honored with Best New Artist and Best Male R&B/Pop Artist trophies at the BET Awards and appeared on DJ Khaled’s star-studded Major Key album that same year. Now, his sophomore album, True To Self, has catapulted to #1 and sold 106,570 equivalent album units in the week ending June 1, according to Nielsen Music. The album was also streamed 85,005,361 times.

Lil Yachty Debuts At #5

Lil Yachty’s fans likely had high hopes for his debut album, Teenage Emotions, but according to Nielsen Music, it surfaced at the #5 slot on the Billboard 200 with 45,589 equivalent album units sold, which is less than half of what Tiller’s True To Self pulled off.

Lil Boat took to Instagram to address the numbers Monday (June 5), writing, “I understand first week numbers didn’t do what most people expected but that’s only because they don’t understand me. They don’t understand us. I don’t expect anybody to.
