Trippie Redd has reached a major milestone in his career after notching his first No. 1 album. The former XXL Freshman’s latest release, A Love Letter to You 4, has topped the Billboard 200 chart.
Trippie’s new tape was able to move 104,000 units. Of that total, 14,000 came from traditional album sales, reports Billboard on Sunday (Dec. 1). The new project also raked in 125 million on-demand streams.
Trippie celebrated his accomplishment on Instagram. Acknowledging the feat in separate posts, he commented, “#1” and “love you guys.”
A Love Letter to You 4 is the rapper’s third release of 2019. It contains 21 songs and features guest appearances from Juice Wrld, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, DaBaby, Lil Yachty, YNW Melly, Tory Lanez and more. Trippie’s latest project fared better than the album he released over the summer, !. That LP peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 after only moving 51,000 copies in seven days.
On the heels of his latest release, the Ohio rapper appeared on the new XXXTentacion track, “Bad Vibes Forever,” alongside PnB Rock. Trippie will be heading out on tour in promotion of the album starting in 2020. The Love Me More Tour kicks off on Jan. 22 in Seattle, Wash. Trippie will headline 38 shows in the States in cities like New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Boston, Miami and Houston. On March 29, he will embark on a European tour consisting of eight dates.
Other hip-hop artists in the top 10 of this week’s Billboard 200 chart include Post Malone (Hollywood’s Bleeding, No. 4) and YNW Melly (Melly vs. Melvin, No. 8).
