Tyler, Creator has scored his second No. 1-debuting album on the Billboard 200 with his latest release, Call Me If You Get Lost. Billboard reported on Monday (July 5) that the 16-track project earned 169,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. last week. Call Me If You Get Lost is Tyler’s sixth album to make it into the Billboard 200’s Top 10, following his last No. 1 effort, Igor.
On Twitter, Tyler celebrated the good news.
“NI**AS IS BLESSED,” he tweeted, adding, “WOW.”
On Instagram, he wrote, “13. BLESSED [Call Me If You Get Lost] #1.”
Billboard writes that of the album’s 169,000 equivalent album units earned; 114,000 of those were SEA units, equaling 152.96 million on-demand streams. The outlet added that while Call Me If You Get Lost’s album sales were “sturdy,” the LP still would have debuted at No. 1 thanks to its streaming numbers alone.
In support of the record, Tyler also sold CD and cassette tapes, which were out of stock in less than a day. A box set included either a CD, t-shirt and a poster or a cassette, t-shirt and a poster. So far, a vinyl edition of the album has not been announced.

Last month, Tyler performed “Lumberjack” off the album at the BET Awards 2021. During the ceremony, he spoke about his love for rap.
“I just love rap so goddamn much,” he said. “... Listening to [2005’s] The Dedication with Lil Wayne and We Got It For Cheap with Clipse — they really shaped me into who I am.”
“I think a lot of people forget that I’m a rapper because I’m so multifaceted. I just had to remind everyone, ‘Don’t let the wig get it twisted, y’all ni**as can’t fuck with me,’” he added.
