What a Time: Jeezy Beat This Country Star for No. 1 Album

He's doing some impressive numbers.

Published November 7, 2016

Jeezy will be claiming his third No. 1 album as Trap or Die 3, which sold 89,000 total copies in its first week, assumes the top spot.

Billboard reports the project beat out Kenny Chesney’s Cosmic Hallelujah and will be the Atlanta rapper’s first top album since 2008’s The Recession and the third in his career.

Jeezy wasn’t the only rapper to do numbers this week. Meek Mill’s Dreamchasers 4 mixtape, which was released as a retail effort, hit No. 3, selling 87,000 copies.

While Jeezy’s first week was quite impressive, it’s not likely he’ll be atop the Billboard 200 for very long. Alicia Keys's Here and Common’s Black America Again will compete for the top spot in the coming week.
