YBNL signee Asake has unlocked another achievement with his second studio album, Work Of Art, on the Billboard 200 US chart.
Asake’s success continues to soar as his second studio album, “Work Of Art,” made a remarkable debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart in the United States. The album entered the chart at number 66, a significant achievement that solidifies his growing popularity and international recognition.
“Work Of Art” managed to sell over 13,000 units in the US alone during its debut week, showcasing the album’s strong appeal and the artist’s dedicated fanbase. This accomplishment marks Asake’s second appearance on the Billboard 200 chart, following his debut with his first album, “Mr. Money With The Vibe,” released under the YBNL label in 2022. Notably, both albums debuted at the same position, highlighting the artist’s consistent impact on the music industry.
The Billboard 200 is a prestigious and influential chart that ranks the most popular albums in the United States based on various metrics, including album sales, streaming performance, and radio airplay. It serves as a significant indicator of an artist’s commercial success and impact on the American music market.
Asake’s presence on the Billboard 200 demonstrates his ability to captivate audiences and gain traction beyond his home country, as the album also peaked at number one on the Apple Music Top Albums chart for the UK and number 3 for the US as well.
By reaching the Billboard 200 albums chart exclusive to the US alone, Asake joins the ranks of renowned Afrobeats artists such as Wizkid, Burna Boy and others who have also recorded top debuts on the chart since the evolution of the afrobeats sound. This accomplishment further solidifies his status as a rising star and opens doors for future opportunities, collaborations, and continued success in the music industry.
