Lil Baby’s ‘My Turn’ Aiming for No. 1 Return on Billboard 200 Chart

Next week, watch for Lil Baby’s My Turn to possibly return to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart for the first time since it debuted in the top slot in March. Industry forecasters suggest the set may earn over 60,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending June 11.

The album is poised to climb back to No. 1 after a sparse new release schedule on June 5. It’s likely no new albums will debut in the top 20 of next week’s chart (dated June 20).

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which comprises traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the June 20-dated Billboard 200 chart is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s website on Sunday, June 14.

My Turn debuted at No. 1 on the chart dated March 14, and then spent the next 13 straight weeks between Nos. 2-6 on the list. On the most recently published chart, dated June 13, the album sits at No. 3 with 62,000 units earned in the week ending June 4, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

If My Turn climbs back to No. 1, it will mark the longest gap between weeks at No. 1 for an album since Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack took a 17-week vacation from the top slot between its first three weeks at No. 1 (Oct. 20, Oct. 27 and Nov. 3, 2018) and its fourth and final week at No. 1 (March 9, 2019). The album scored its fourth week at No. 1 in the wake of the film’s showcase on the 2019 Academy Awards, where the soundtrack’s Oscar-winning song “Shallow” was performed by Gaga and Cooper.

Speaking of Gaga, her new album Chromatica — which launched at No. 1 on last week’s Billboard 200 — is expected to fall to No. 2 on next week’s list. Forecasters suggest the set could tally around 55,000 equivalent album units in the week ending June 11, down from its start of 274,000 units (according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data).
