Don Toliver Gets First No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart With ‘Hardstone Psycho’

With his fourth appearance on Billboard‘s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, Don Toliver achieves his first No. 1 as Hardstone Psycho launches atop the list dated June 29. The set, released on June 14, earned 76,500 equivalent album units in the U.S. for the tracking week of June 14 – 20, according to Luminate.

Of Hardstone Psycho’s 76,500-unit start, streaming activity contributed 57,000 units, a sum representing 75.98 million on-demand official streams of the set’s songs. Traditional album sales supplied 19,500 units, while track-equivalent album units comprise a negligible sum. Both the streaming sum and album-sales figures are new career bests for the Houston native. (One unit equals the following levels of consumption: one album sale, 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams for a song on the album.)

Hardstone Psycho, issued on Cactus Jack/Atlantic Records, gives Don Toliver a first champ on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums after the rapper and singer’s three prior releases each hit the top five, but couldn’t capture the top slot. His debut full-length, Heaven or Hell, peaked at No. 5, while sophomore effort Life of a Don reached a No. 2 best and his third LP, Love Sick, attained a No. 4 high.

Elsewhere, Hardstone Psycho opens at No. 1 on the Top Rap Albums chart, where Don Toliver likewise bags his first leader, and at No. 3 on the all-genre Billboard 200.

The career-best start for Hardstone Psycho helps several of its tracks leap onto the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Current single, the prior-released “Attitude,” featuring R&B legend Charlie Wilson and rising rapper Cash Cobain, rallies 36-16 in its fourth week on the chart. In addition to nabbing a new peak, it wins the weekly Streaming Gainer prize for the largest increase in streams among the chart’s non-debuting titles. The collaboration rockets from 4.1 million U.S. streams in the past week to 8.7 million for this tracking period, a 110% surge.

Thanks to the top 20 showing, Wilson picks up his highest rank on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs since “You Are” rested at No. 13 in 2011. Cash Cobain, too, seizes the highest result for his young career.

Nine Hardstone Psycho songs debut on the 50-position Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Beyond “Attitude,” another previously released single, “Bandit,” flies 35-21 in its 20th week on the list, in the vicinity of its No. 13 peak in February.
