Despite less than five years since his Billboard chart debut, Lil Baby has captured a chart record, as My Turn has clocked an 85th week in the top 10 of the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
With its latest week in the top 10, it becomes the title with the most weeks inside the top 10 since the chart began in 1965.
For its record-breaking week, My Turn repeats at No.8 on the chart dated March 19. It earned 21,500 equivalent album units in the latest tracking week (ending March 10), according to Luminate, formerly MRC Data.
My Turn surpasses the previous recordholder, Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding, which logged 84 weeks in the top 10 in 2019-2021. When Bleeding established a new mark, it took the record from two other Post Malone titles, his 2016 debut LP, Stoney, and its follow-up, 2018’s beerbongs & bentleys, each with 77 weeks in the top 10. Those two, in turn, leapfrogged Michael Jackson’s Thriller, whose 76 weeks had been the record-setter since 1984.
My Turn, released on February 28, 2020, has now spent 106 weeks on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, including six at No.1. Its longevity was supported by five top 10 hits on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart: “Woah” (No.7), “Sum 2 Prove” (No.9), “Heatin Up,” with Gunna (No.10), “We Paid,” with 42 Dugg (No.8) and “The Bigger Picture” (No.3).
Upon release, the album received nearly unanimous acclaim. In their review, Billboard said, “Style is a slippery, subjective rubric, but the best Lil Baby songs ooze with charisma and confidence. Lil Baby is at his best when he’s vivid in his descriptions of everyday life. On the 42 Dugg-assisted ‘Grace,’ we learn that Baby’s got designer kicks for days, but still gravitates to the cocaine-white shine of Air Force 1’s because he’ll always be a dope boy — even when he’s years removed from the streets.” HipHopDX added, “Lil Baby Proves his hit-making skills are legit on My Turn Deluxe Album.”
