Gunna’s ‘A Gift & a Curse’ Is No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart – Billboard

Written by on 29/06/2023

Gunna bursts in at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart with fourth studio album A Gift & a Curse on the list dated July 1. The set, released June 16 on Gunna/Young Stoner Life/300/3EE, enters with 85,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending June 22, according to Luminate.

Of A Gift & a Curse’s first-week sum, just under 84,000 units derive from streaming, equaling 112.6 million official on-demand streams of the album’s songs. Album sales contribute 1,000 units, while the remaining balance is a negligible sum from track-equivalent album units. (One unit equals the following levels of consumption: one album sale, 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams for a song on the album.)

Gunna grabs his fourth Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums No. 1 with his latest champ. His previous three efforts – Drip or Drown 2 (2019), Wunna (2020) and DS4Ever (2022) – all debuted at No. 1; the foremost pair led for one week, while the lattermost title ruled for five frames.

Elsewhere, A Gift & a Curse likewise becomes Gunna’s fourth leader on the Top Rap Albums chart and starts at No. 3 on the all-genre Billboard 200.

Gunna’s Gift keeps giving, as it sparks 13 debuts on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. “Fukumean” leads the new arrivals at No. 8, while “Back to the Moon” follows at No. 10. With the two tracks, Gunna picks up his 14th and 15th top 10s. In addition to the new songs, previous release “Bread and Butter” recovers 27-18 thanks to the album’s strong streaming performance.

Here’s a recap of all 14 of Gunna’s songs on this week’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart:

  • No. 8, “Fukumean”
  • No. 10, “Back to the Moon”
  • No. 15, “Rodeo Dr”
