RL Grime Scores His First Billboard No. 1 with His New Album
RL Grime’s sophomore album is making some huge waves right now — and Billboard is an excellent indicator of its success.
By the king of charts’ standards, RL Grime currently reigns supreme, notching his first Top Dance/Electronic Albums No. 1 with NOVA. He scored 6,000 equivalent album units, with 1,000 in traditional album sales, landing the album atop the Dance/Electronic Album Sales chart, as well.
Additionally, RL Grime has placed three NOVA cuts on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, including “Light Me Up” featuring Miguel and Julia Michaels, which debuts highest at No. 18. “I Wanna Know” featuring Daya and “Undo” with Jeremiah and Tory Lanez also appear on the chart.
Stats are great and all but just a listen through is all it takes to realize how amazing the album truly is! If you haven’t already, experience it right here.
