Newlywed Gucci Mane collects a nice wedding present as his latest album, Mr. Davis, debuts at No. 1 on both the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums charts. The set arrives atop the rankings dated Nov. 4 with 70,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 19, according to Nielsen Music.
Mr. Davis, released Oct. 13 through Guwop/Atlantic Records, marks the rapper’s second leader on both charts. His previous set, 2016’s Everybody Looking, likewise debuted atop both rankings. Mr. Davis also received a strong publicity boost during its debut week thanks to Gucci Mane’s wedding to Keyshia K’Oir on Oct. 17, with the ceremony aired live on BET.
In line with most rap releases this year, streaming drives most of the album’s debut sum. 46,000 of the album’s 70,000-unit start derives from streams, a figure equal to 68.7 million on-demand audio streams of the album’s songs.
The Mr. Davis debut also pushes the set’s single “I Get The Bag” (featuring Migos) 7-5 move on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for Gucci’s fourth trip to the top five. He previously visited the region as a lead act once, with his No. 3 hit “Wasted,” featuring Plies or OJ Da Juiceman, in 2009, and twice as a featured artist, on Mario’s “Break Up,” with Sean Garrett (No. 2 in 2009) and on Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” (No. 1 for seven weeks in 2016-17).
In addition to “Bag,” two other Mr. Davis tracks get a boost on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs: “Curve,” featuring The Weeknd, re-enters at No. 28 after having previously gone as high as No. 29. Meanwhile, “Stuntin’ Ain’t Nothin” (featuring Slim Jxmmi & Young Dolph) debuts at No. 39.
