Bryson Tiller officially has a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.
His latest release, True to Self, debuted in the top spot with 107,000 album units — 47,000 of those were traditional album sales.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new June 17, 2017-dated chart (where Tiller debuts at No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, June 6.
True to Self was released a month earlier than its expected June 23 street date, and is the follow-up to Tiller’s debut set, Trapsoul. The latter set peaked at No. 8 on the chart in January of 2016, and helped Tiller finish the year as Billboard’s top new artist. Trapsoul has earned 1.6 million equivalent album units, of which 441,000 are in traditional album sales.
True to Self was supported mostly by SEA units (57,000) and traditional album sales. The remainder of its bow came from TEA units (2,000).
Congrats to Bryson!
