After a handful of delays, 2 Chainz’s follow-up studio album to 2016’s ColleGrove was officially released on June 16. Titled Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, the album boasts 16 new track with guest spots from the usual suspects — Gucci Mane, Quavo, Travis Scott, Nicki Minaj, Swae Lee, Drake, Migos, Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz and Pharrell. For the week ending June 22, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music was streamed 69,524,780 times, landing in the #2 spot and bumping Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. down a spot to #3.

Despite the controversy with CoverGirl, Young Thug’s Beautiful Thugger Girls debuted at #8 while Big Boi’s Boomiverse couldn’t crack the Top 10 and limped into the #28 spot. SZA’s CTRL took a dip by 49 percent and ended up in the #11 spot in its second week. That performance is still better than what Katy Perry’s Witness did in its second week, which took an 85 percent dive.

Not surprisingly, 2Pac’s Greatest Hits album jumped 101 percent and his 1996 masterpiece All Eyez On Me made a 131 percent climb thanks to the recently released biopic, All Eyez On Me

2 Chainz Knocks Kendrick Lamar Out Of #2 Spot

After holding steady in the #2 slot for three consecutive weeks, Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. was finally knocked down a notch by 2 Chainz’s Pretty Girls Like Trap Music. With 69,524,780 album streams, 56,506 pure album sales and 106,461 total album equivalent units, the Atlanta trap star’s fourth official studio album debuted at #2. It beats his last album, ColleGrove, which debuted at #4 and sold 34,000 copies in its first week.

Young Thug Cracks Top 10

The title of Young Thug’s Beautiful Thugger Girls album caught a little heat from cosmetics giant CoverGirl last week for using a play on its slogan: “Easy, Breezy, Beautiful CoverGirl.” But Thugger’s album still managed to crack the Top 10, and wind up in the #8 slot with 36,537 total equivalent units sold and 42,040,930 album streams. Interestingly enough, Thug’s 2016 mixtape, Jeffery, also debuted at #8, and clocked in with 18,000 copies sold in its first week.

Big Boi Fails To Make A Boom

While the expectations for Big Boi’s solo album Boomiverse were likely high, it not only failed to crack the Top 10, but it also didn’t make the Top 20. The Outkast legend’s follow-up studio album to 2012’s Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors landed with a thud at #28, but it did chart higher than Vicious Lies, which hit the chart at #34. Boomiverse sold 19,178 total album equivalent units, 13,392 pure albums and was streamed 6,265,361 times.
