Will NBA YoungBoy’s record dethrone Drake as the best-selling album of all time? ‘Let the numbers speak for themselves,’ say fans.
On September 23, NBA YoungBoy, who is now incarcerated for weapons offenses, released his latest project.
For the past two weeks, Drake’s sixth album, “Certified Lover Boy” nicknamed “CLB,” has been at the top of the Billboard 200 chart. In the third week, however, the Toronto hip-hop heavyweight may not have it easy, as NBA YoungBoy’s third studio album, titled “Sincerely, Kentrell,” is set to make the rap legend sweat.
NBA YoungBoy, who is now incarcerated for firearms offences, released his latest project on Friday, September 24, and based on forecasts, the 21-year-old rapper may give Drake’s forthcoming full-length album a tough time. Kanye West, on the other hand, is currently in second place with his tenth studio album, ‘Donda.’ With YoungBoy projected to make a big impact on the charts, ‘Donda’ could fall to third place.

NBA YoungBoy, also known as YoungBoy Never Broke Again, was unable to promote his album because he is now being jailed without bond at the St. Martin Parish Correctional Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He’s also one of the few young rappers with a sizable fan base. While Drake set a new record by selling 500K units in one week, YoungBoy’s first-week forecasts have also been released, and they appear to be encouraging.
According to HitsDailyDouble, the young hip-hop artist is on pace to sell 135K-155K in its first week, perhaps breaking Drake’s three-week streak on the 200 charts, as reported by Hot New Hip Hop. The streaming services account for a large portion of NBA YoungBoy’s sales. In reality, his album was ranked first on Apple Music, while Drake’s “CLB” was ranked second. Because the Louisiana rapper’s record was only released a day ago, the sales total will almost surely skyrocket. Birdman, the CEO of Cash Money Records, recently stated, “I believe NBA YoungBoy might be the biggest rapper.” No one is going to be bigger than NBA YoungBoy; the numbers don’t lie; he’s the most popular YouTuber.
