It’s official — YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s Sincerely, Kentrell has ended Drake’s Certified Lover Boy reign atop the Billboard 200 albums chart, and is currently the No. 1 album in the country. According to Billboard, Sincerely, Kentrell is the Baton Rouge rapper’s fourth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, and his third project to reach No. 1 since 2020. 

Sincerely, Kentrell earned 137,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Sept. 30, according to MRC Data. YB was able to garner 186.29 million on-demand streams, while also moving 10,000 worth of pure sales. Drake’s CLB raked in 135,000 equivalent album units, falling just short of a fourth consecutive week in the top slot.

Billboard, which typically shares the Billboard 200 chart on Sunday afternoon, delayed this week’s announcement. Several reports, within the industry, mentioned that since the sales between both rappers were so close, the music publication waited to confirm exact amounts for both artists. Billboard has not confirmed the reports regarding the wait.

Sincerely, Kentrell was released on Sept. 24 via YoungBoy’s Never Broke Again imprint and Atlantic Records. The 21-track album contains no features, but boasts the hit singles “Toxic Punk,” “White Teeth, “Life Support,” and “On My Side.”

Unfortunately, the embattled 21-year-old rapper will have to celebrate the feat behind bars, where he remains imprisoned in a Louisiana jail. YoungBoy reportedly becomes just the third artist to ever have a No. 1 album while they’re in prison. Hip hop icons Tupac and Lil Wayne are the other two artists whose albums topped the charts while they were in jail.

As REVOLT previously reported, YoungBoy was taken into jail Tuesday (April 13) at the request of federal authorities, following his Los Angeles arrest. YoungBoy pleaded not guilty to federal drug and weapons charges, which reportedly stemmed from a music video shoot in Baton Rouge last year.

The multi-platinum rapper released a letter from the Never Broke Again LLC official Instagram page, around the time of his arrest, asking fans to let him “suffer in peace.” “I can leave my kids millions of dollars to divide but can’t give them the time they truly deserve,” he wrote. “Nobody understand me they never did shit some times I don’t understand myself but that’s fine because im okay i aint looking for you to feel sorry i just ask for one thing — for you to let me suffer in peace.” He is currently awaiting trial.
