Roddy Ricch’s ‘Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial’ Returns To The Top Of The Charts

Roddy Ricch continued his reign atop the Billboard 200 chart for the second week as his debut album, Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, returned to the No. 1 spot yet again, topping Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding, Harry Styles’ Fine Line, Travis Scott’s Jackboys EP, and Disney’s Frozen 2 soundtrack.

Roddy’s debut previously reached No. 1 in December, incidentally returning to the top of the 200 after social media users criticized Justin Bieber for reposting a fan’s six-slide plea to stream “Yummy” overnight and via VPN to boost its numbers, prompting a counter campaign to support Roddy’s Hot 100 bid, “The Box.” It looks like that counter campaign was at least partially successful so far, giving Roddy enough streams to propel Please Excuse Me…, on which “The Box” is the second song, back to the top of the 200 chart after a month-long slide.

Incidentally, tomorrow’s edition of Billboard‘s charts will be the first to include on-demand video streams from YouTube, Apple, Spotify, Tidal, and Vevo. The tallies will only include “officially licensed” streams, so there’s bound to be some margin for error, but it also allows for a more “consumption-based” model that better reflects listeners’ actual habits. The chart formulas were last updated December of 2014 to allow for streams from Spotify, Apple, and Tidal after years of only accounting for pure album sales.

Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial is out now on Atlantic. Get it here.
