6lack nabs his second top 5 efforts on Billboards Top R&B Albums, as his new EP, 6pc Hot, debuts in the runner-up dated on the list July 11.
The singer-rapper whose name is pronounced ‘Black’, reached the top five with his prior effort, 2018’s East Atlanta Love Letter.It reigned for two weeks from September to October. His 2016 debut, Free 6lack, climbed to a No. 6 best in May 2017.
According to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, six-song project, released on LVRN/Interscope, started with 26,000 equivalent album units earned in the week.
His debut, “Know My Rights” featuring Lil Baby is No. 33 on the Hot R&B/ Hip-Hop Songs chart. It becomes 6lack’s fourth chart hit there and arrives one spot below his personal best on the list, through “OTW,” a collaboration with Khalid and Ty Dolla $ign that reached No. 32 in July 2018.
It was both the top seller and highest-streamed track from 6pc in its initial week of availability.
The tune registered 2,000 downloads in the week ending July 2 and generated 7.5 million U.S. streams in the same period. Its top status among 6pc is of little surprise, as featured act Lil Baby is currently riding the hottest streak of his young career.
In addition to its R&B debut, 6pc opens at No. 11 on Top R&B/ Hip-Hop Albums, and No. 15 on the all-genre Billboard 200.
