Lil Uzi Vert is having the best year ever. From his “Bad and Boujee” verse to the hugely popular single “XO TOUR LIif3” that’s accumulated almost 400 million plays on Spotify alone, Uzi has edged his way into the center of the culture and our hearts. He’s dropped five mixtapes since 2014 and has slowly but surely been accumulating a die-hard fanbase. His debut album, Luv Is Rage 2, is a testament to the super stardom he’s achieved, as it’s currently sitting at the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 charts.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums and streaming equivalent albums. Of Luv Is Rage 2’s total debut units, 28,000 are in traditional album sales. The album is powered primarily by SEA units: 100,000 — translating to 150.6 million on-demand audio streams of the tracks on the album. Luv Is Rage 2’s streaming sum of 100,000 SEA units is the largest for an album in nearly four months. Congrats, Uzi! Find out what all the hype is about below:
“I’m not here to trick nobody,” Lil Uzi Vert told Zane Lowe during a recent Beats 1 interview. “It’s what it is — if you get it, you get it, if you don’t you don’t.” Lowe called him the ‘King of the Kids’ because of his vulnerable honesty and the way he connects with his fans. Uzi shares exactly what’s on his mind and heart through his music, you can feel it in each track. Luv Is Rage 2 is undoubtedly his best work yet and you can expect to see it on the charts for months to come.
