2 Chainz Talks Earning His Third #1 Rap Album With ‘Pretty Girls Like Trap Music’


(AllHipHop News) 2 Chainz’s Pretty Girls Like Trap Music nearly doubled its first-week sales predictions by collecting 106,000 units out of the gate.

The Atlanta native was just around 3,000 units short of topping Lorde’s Melodrama for the #1 spot on the Billboard 200.

Chainz was not able to lead that chart, but Pretty Girls Like Trap Music did earn him his third #1 on the Rap Albums Chart.

2012’s Based on a T.R.U. Story and 2013’s B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time were chart toppers as well.

Billboard spoke with the “Good Drank” performer at the NBA Awards red carpet on Monday.

“I feel real good. I feel real blessed and humbled by it,” said Chainz about PGLTM hitting #1 on the Rap Albums Chart. “Hard work pays off. I prayed for this album to be number one. I put a lot of effort into this album. I put a lot of resources together for this album, so it feels good to celebrate it on a night like tonight.”

The commercial success of 2 Chainz’s latest project is complemented by critical praise.

Pretty Girls Like Trap Music currently has an 82/100 score on Metacritic, making it one of the best reviewed Hip Hop albums of 2017.
