Travis Scott is doing big things, and hitting No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for his album Birds In the Trap Sing McKnight is one of them. The album sold 88,000 copies in its first week of release—and scored a major win for Apple.
This is Scott’s first album to score a No. 1 spot on the charts. According to Billboard, the songs on Birds In the Trap Sing McKnight received 50.2 million streams during its first week of release.
And Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight is the fifth Apple Music exclusive to debut at No. 1 on the charts in 2016. With Drake’s Views, Future’s Evol, DJ Khaled’s Major Key, and Frank Ocean’s Blonde all hitting the top spot opening week, this is just another reminder to put your trust in Apple Music.
Scott could not be more excited for his accomplishment. On Sunday he tweeted appreciation to his fans.
It’s been a great year so far for both Apple Music and its users. And for those who do not have a subscription, the album is available for purchase through iTunes.
Scott has been at the top of the charts before. In 2015 the Houston rapper’s Rodeo peaked at No. 3.
