Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being Goes #1 On Albums Chart

Lil Waynes I Am Not A Human Being Goes 1 On Albums Chart

Two weeks after Lil Wayne’s “I Am Not a Human Being” bowed at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 exclusively from download sales, its CD release pushes it to No. 1 in its third chart week. The set moves from No. 16 to No. 1 with 125,000 sold (up 443%), according to Nielsen SoundScan.

It’s the first No. 1 to climb to the top (as opposed to debuting there) since a year ago, when the “Twilight Saga: New Moon” soundtrack moved 2-1 in its second week on the list. (Most albums that hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 tend to do so by debuting there.)

“I Am Not a Human Being’s” 16-1 jump on the chart is the largest leap to the top since the chart dated Jan. 19, 2008, when Radiohead’s “In Rainbows” zipped 156-1. It debuted a week early on the list because retailers began selling it before its official street date. – Billboard

Congratulations to Tunechi for getting top of the charts ❗

This is a huge accomplishment for Weezy, and now we must wait until Saturday to see where it places on the Billboard 200 chart.

BONUS: After the jump you can view a funny clip from The Cleveland Show where Kenny (played by Kanye West) mentions Wayne.
