Minaj’s celebration for Polo comes as the Chicago rapper fended off stiff competition from Migos for the No. 1 spot. Despite early projections giving the nod to Polo G, the Atlanta trio made a hard charge for No. 1, even alerting fans to a deluxe edition of their latest album. Instead, Culture III is currently projected to land at the No. 2 spot, falling short of the No. 1 perch the previous two Culture albums landed on.
The soon-to-be No. 1 album is another feather in the cap for Polo G’s 2021. He earned his first Billboard No. 1 single in April with “RAPSTAR” and recently sat with Basketball Hall of Famer and former Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen to discuss the obstacles between his debut album and his sophomore effort and how they aligned to when Pippen’s Bulls overcame the Detroit Pistons en route to their first NBA title 30 years ago.
