Taking the crown yet again, GRAMMY nominated, multi-platinum artist, producer, entrepreneur, author, and music guru DJ Khaled bows at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 with his tenth full-length offering, GRATEFUL via We The Best Music Group/Epic Records. Achieving 149,127 equivalent sales in total activity, this notably marks Khaled‘s biggest first-week at #1 Overall and #1 Hip-Hop, his second consecutive debut at the top of the chart in under twelve months’ time, and his seventh Top 10 entry overall since 2008.

Khaled took the first step on the road to GRATEFUL with his high-profile GRAMMY press conference where he announced the impending release. That five-month journey culminates now as he clinched #1. Note, this is also his first #1 with infant son Asahd Tuck Khaled its Executive Producer. Kicking off release week, he ignited the BET Awards with an unforgettable performance and starred in a hilarious Daily Show skit with Trevor Noah followed by a packed in-store at Urban Outfitters’ Space 15 Twenty the day the album dropped, and finally an appearance on ABC’s The Chew too.

Congrats to DJ Khaled, Asahd, We The Best, Roc Nation and Epic, for a #1 album yet again on the Billboard Top 200!
