Lil Yachty has recently broken personal records, hitting the number two spot on Billboard’s Top R&B and Hip Hop album chart with his album “Lil Boat 2.” His 2017 album “Teenage Emotions” peaked at number 4 on the same chart. Three tracks off the album have also peaked on Billboard’s Top 100 R&B and Hip Hop songs, including “NBAYoungboat” at 31, “66” at 36, and “Boom!” at 43. Logic is also smashing records of his own with his most recent album “Tarantino II” which “earned 119,000 consecutive album units” since its public release. In addition to Logic’s number one spot, most of the tracks off the album have also hit the Billboard Top 100 R&B and Hip Hop, including “Indica Badu” at 26, “Contra” at 28, “Overnight” at 32, and several other tracks holding prominent top 100 positions.
Will the two rappers continue to make waves, and break personal records with future album releases? Do you think these two have peaked? Is it time for a new wave of rappers and artists to claim the top spots?
