Wiz Khalifa Earns First #1 Album With “Blacc Hollywood”

It appears the fifth time was the charm for Wiz Khalifa. The Atlantic Records rap star’s latest album, Blacc Hollywood, will open in the number one spot on the Billboard 200 album chart. This gives Wiz his first chart topper.

Blacc Hollywood sold around 90,000 units in its opening week. While those numbers were lower than the first week totals for his previous major label LPs Rolling Papers (197,000) and O.N.I.F.C. (148,000), they were enough to land Wiz at number one above the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack.

Wiz’s Blacc Hollywood joins Schoolboy Q’s Oxymoron and Rick Ross’s Mastermind as the only rap albums to reach number one on the Billboard 200 in 2014.

Last year at this time there were five different rap artists that held the number one album in the country at some point – A$AP Rocky (Long. Live. A$AP), Kanye West (Yeezus), Wale (The Gifted), J. Cole (Born Sinner), and Jay Z (Magna Carta Holy Grail).
