Lil Baby’s ‘My Turn’ Hits Fifth Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart

Lil Baby’s "My Turn" holds steady at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, earning a fifth total week at the top of the chart -- the most for any album in 2020.

Lil Baby’s ‘My Turn’ Hits Fifth Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart

Lil Baby’s My Turn holds steady at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, earning a fifth total week at the top of the chart. It sits tight for a fourth straight week with 70,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending July 2 (down less than 1 percent), according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It spent its first week at No. 1 when it debuted atop the chart dated March 14.

With five weeks at No. 1, the set now owns the most weeks at the top in 2020 for any album, and the most in total since Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding locked up its fifth and final nonconsecutive week at No. 1 on Nov. 16, 2019.

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 comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new July 11-dated chart (where My Turn is No. 1 for a fifth week) will be posted in full on Billboard’s website on July 7.

My Turn was released on Feb. 28 via Quality Control/Motown/Capitol Records and marks Lil Baby’s fifth charting effort. Among those earlier four albums were a trio of top 10s: Street Gossip (No. 2, 2018), Drip Harder (with Gunna, No. 4; 2018) and Harder Than Ever (No. 3, 2018).

Notably, with a fifth week at No. 1, My Turn ties Boyz II Men’s II for the most weeks at No. 1 for a Motown album in the last 40-plus years. II also logged five nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 (Sept. 17-24, Oct. 8, Oct. 29, 1994, and March 11, 1995).

Only two other Motown other albums have logged at least five weeks at No. 1: Stevie Wonder’s Songs in the Key of Life (14 nonconsecutive weeks, Oct. 16, 1976-Jan. 8, 1977, and Jan. 29, 1977) and Diana Ross & The Supremes’ Greatest Hits (five consecutive weeks, Oct. 28-Nov. 25, 1967).

My Turn was already the longest-leading album released by Quality Control. The label’s two earlier No. 1s, Migos’ Culture and Culture II, spent one week atop the list, respectively, in 2017 and 2018.

My Turn also continues to have the most weeks at No. 1 for any Capitol Records set since The Beatles’ greatest hits compilation 1 snared eight nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 in late 2000 and early 2001 (Dec. 2, 2000; Dec. 23, 2000-Feb. 3, 2001).

My Turn leads a top 10 absent of any debuts — the third time that’s happened in the last four weeks. The chart also went without a bow in the top 10 on the June 27 and June 20 lists. However, while there are no new albums debuting in the top 10, there is a lot of reshuffling in the region — and one album jumps back into the top 10 after nearly two months.

Lil Durk’s Just Cause Y’all Waited 2 surges from No. 56 to a new peak of No. 2 with 43,000 equivalent album units (up 202 percent) after the set was reissued on June 26 with seven new tracks. Nearly all of that unit total was driven by streaming activity, with 41,000 of the sum from SEA units (up 200 percent).

The album debuted seven weeks ago at No. 5 (May 23 chart) with 57,000 units earned in its first week.

Just Cause Y’all Waited 2 is the latest in a series of R&B and hip-hop albums in 2020 that have seen chart benefits from a deluxe reissue. It follows other titles such as A Boogie Wit da Hoodie’s Artist 2.0 (80-3 on the July 4 chart; up 292 percent to 43,000 units after nine tracks were added to a deluxe edition on June 19 – 18 weeks after its release) and Lil Baby’s My Turn (5-3 on the May 16 chart; up 147 percent to 100,000 units after six tracks were added to the album on May 1 — nine weeks after its release).

Other sets that got a post-release boost from bonus tracks, but on a much swifter schedule: The Weeknd added three new songs to After Hours in its second week of release (helping it hold at No. 1 for a second week on April 11 with 138,000 units, down 69 percent) and Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake got 14 new songs in its second week (the set stayed steady at No. 1 for a second week on the chart dated March 28 with 247,000 units, down 14 percent). NAV’s Good Intentions didn’t even bother waiting a full week to add songs — as the album had 14 new songs added to its tracklist on May 11, just three days after its release on May 8. Good Intentions debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 dated May 23 with 135,000 units.

Back in the new Billboard 200 top 10, a trio of former No. 1s are at Nos. 3-5, as DaBaby’s Blame It on Baby climbs one spot to No. 3 (40,000 equivalent album units; up 7 percent), Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding rises 5-4 (39,000 units; up 7 percent) and The Weeknd’s After Hours returns to the top 10, rising 11-5 (32,000 units; up 1 percent — a small percentage gain this week can yield a big positional jump, as the unit gap between titles in the top 10 is small). After Hours was in the top 10 just two weeks ago, and has only been out of the top 10 for two weeks in its 15-week chart run.

Another album returns to the top 10, but after a much longer time away from the region, as Harry Styles’ Fine Line bolts from No. 13 to No. 6 with 32,000 equivalent album units (up 4 percent). The set is up in SEA units (25,000; up 3 percent), album sales (6,000; up 3 percent) and TEA units (1,000; up 16 percent). The former No. 1, which opened atop the list and spent two weeks in charge, was last in the top 10 on the Feb. 8-dated tally.

The set continues to profit from the sustained popularity of its hit single “Adore You,” which hit No. 2 — a new peak — on the most recently published all-format Radio Songs airplay chart (dated July 4). The song peaked at No. 1 on the Pop Songs chart dated April 11 (the list ranks the most played songs of the week on top 40-formatted radio stations) and at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated April 11 (the Hot 100 is an airplay/sales/streaming hybrid tally).

Also fueling Fine Line is the album’s latest hit, “Watermelon Sugar,” which, on the July 4-dated charts, climbed 35-24 on Radio Songs, 18-14 on Pop Songs and 19-16 on the Hot 100.

Polo G’s The Goat rises 10-7 on the new Billboard 200 with 31,000 equivalent album units earned (down 2 percent), Lil Uzi Vert’s former leader Eternal Atake shifts 9-8 with just under 31,000 units (down 3 percent) and Drake’s previous No. 1 Dark Lane Demo Tapes falls 7-9 with 30,000 units (down 5 percent).

Future’s former No. 1 High Off Life closes out the new top 10, as it steps 12-10 with 29,000 equivalent album units (down 8 pecent).

Ryan Adams Sorry for How He ‘Mistreated’ Women: ‘I Will Never Be Off the Hook’

More than a year after The New York Times published a report of alleged sexual misconduct by Ryan Adams, the singer has written a lengthy apology for his past behavior.

“There are no words to express how bad I feel about the ways I’ve mistreated people through my life and career,” the singer-songwriter began in his open letter, which he shared with the . “All I can say is that I’m sorry.”

“I’ve gotten past the point where I would be apologizing just for the sake of being let off the hook and I know full well that any apology from me probably won’t be accepted by those I’ve hurt,” he continued. “I get that and I also understand that there’s no going back.”

Adams went on to acknowledge that he understands many will believe that his open letter will feel like “the same bulls–t apology” that he’s employed before, but said it’s different this time. The artist explained: “Having truly realized the harm I’ve caused, it wrecked me, and I am still reeling from the ripples of devastating effects my actions triggered.”

“No amount of growth will ever take away the suffering I had caused,” he continued. I will never be off the hook and I am fully accountable for my harmful behavior, and will be for my actions moving forward.”

Adams also shared that he’s been working on his sobriety. “In my effort to be a better man, I have fought to get sober, but this time I’m doing it with professional help,” he wrote. “Sobriety is a priority in my life, and so is my mental health. These, as I’m learning, go hand in hand.”

“I hope that the people I’ve hurt will heal,” he concluded. “And I hope that they will find a way to forgive me.”

Adams’ attorney confirmed to Billboard that the full letter posted on was indeed from the artist.

Seven women claimed in the February 2019 New York Times report that the musician offered to help them with their careers before things became sexual, and that Adams was sometimes emotionally and verbally abusive. According to the report, he would withdraw his support of aspiring female artists if they rejected his alleged pursuits for sex.

His ex-wife, singer and actress Mandy Moore, told the paper at the time, “Music was a point of control for him.”

After the article’s publication, Adams tweeted an apology to “anyone I have ever hurt.” But he claimed that the story was not entirely accurate: “The picture that this article paints is upsettingly inaccurate. Some of its details are misrepresented; some are exaggerated; some are outright false.”
