Youngboy’s third studio album. Sincerely, Kentrell, the project started last Friday (September 24) and is already producing results. The record will compete with Drake’s sixth studio album, Certified Lover Boy, on the Billboard list, and the contest is too close to call.
YoungBoy is in a close competition with the 6 God for the top spot on the Billboard 200, according to HITS Daily Double. The Baton Rouge rapper is expected to sell 131,000 copies of his album, while Drake is likely to sell 132,000 copies, according to sales forecasts.
Last week, Lil Nas X attempted to dethrone Drake with his first album Montero, which sold 123,000 copies, but Drake smashed him with 171,000 sales. If YoungBoy beats Drake, he’ll join an elite group of rappers who have topped the Billboard charts while incarcerated. The only other rappers to achieve the feat are 2Pac and Lil Wayne.
