DaBaby has landed his first #1 album with “KIRK”, He topped the Billboard 200 chart by selling 145,000 album units in his first week. Here is the full read via Billboard below…

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Oct. 12-dated chart (where Kirk debuts at No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard’s websites on Oct. 8.

Kirk, which is DaBaby’s actual last name (real name: Jonathan Kirk), follows his first studio release, Baby on Baby, which peaked at No. 7 on the June 1-dated list. The latter boasts DaBaby’s breakthrough single “Suge,” which marked his first top 10 hit on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 songs chart (reaching No. 7 on July 6). Through the week ending Oct. 2, Baby on Baby has earned 719,000 equivalent album units, and collected over 1 billion on-demand audio streams for its songs.  

As noted above, Kirk starts with 145,000 equivalent album units, of which 8,000 were in album sales, 2,000 in TEA units and 136,000 in SEA units. The latter sum equates to 181.7 million on-demand audio streams for the set’s 13 songs during its first week — the fifth-largest debut streaming week for an album in 2019.
