However, Trippie was able to secure his fifth Top 5 album in less than three years. Pegasus opened at #2 on the Billboard 200. The project collected 60,000 equivalent album units in its initial week.
That sales total was down from the 104,000 units garnered by A Love Letter to You 4 which debuted at #1 in 2019. Trippie’s other Top 5 entries include 2018’s Life’s a Trip (#4), 2018’s A Love Letter to You 3 (#3), and 2019’s ! (#3).
Pegasus features contributions by PartyNextDoor, Chris Brown, Rich The Kid, Young Thug, Future, Quavo, Lil Mosey, Busta Rhymes, Lil Wayne, and more. Trippie Redd also dropped the 6-track EP titled Spooky Sounds on October 23.
