Despite the famous fingerprints of features king Ty Dolla $ign, his collaborative project with Jeremih — MihTy — has hit the chart at a less-than-stellar No. 60.

With 11,337 total album equivalent units, 1,459 pure album sales and a streaming count of 12,237,857, the album clearly struggled to break through the Top 50.

The project serves as the debut album from the high-profile duo and features French Montana, Wiz Khalifa and Chris Brown.
