6lack’s ‘6pc’ Wings Into Top 5 on R&B Albums Chart

6lack nabs his second top five effort on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart as his new EP, 6pc Hot, debuts in the runner-up spot on the list dated July 11. The six-song project, released on LVRN/Interscope, starts with 26,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending July 2, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The singer-rapper, whose stage name is pronounced “Black,” previously reached the top five with his prior effort, 2018’s East Atlanta Love Letter, which reigned for two weeks that September – October. His 2016 debut, Free 6lack, climbed to a No. 6 best in May 2017.

In addition to its R&B debut, 6pc opens at No. 11 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and at No. 15 on the all-genre Billboard 200.

As 6pc arrives, four of its cut debut on the Hot R&B Songs chart: “Float” (No. 12), “Long Nights” (No. 13), “Elephant in the Room” (No. 20) and “Outside” (No. 25). The quartet of new recruits push 6lack to 17 total entries on the list since his first, “Cutting Lies” in 2018.

Beyond those entries, a fifth title, “Know My Rights,” featuring Lil Baby, debuts at No. 33 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. It becomes 6lack’s fourth chart hit there and arrives one spot below his personal best on the list, through “OTW,” a collaboration with Khalid and Ty Dolla $ign that reached No. 32 in July 2018.

“Rights” was both the top seller and highest-streamed track from 6pc in its initial week of availability. The tune registered 2,000 downloads in the week ending July 2 and generated 7.5 million U.S. streams in the same period. Its top status among 6pc is of little surprise, as featured act Lil Baby is currently riding the hottest streak of his young career. Lil Baby’s My Turn album rules the Billboard 200 for a fifth week, the most of any title this year, and leads Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums for a sixth term.
