Tory Lanez - Memories Don't Die

With just a litte over a week since his sophomore release, Tory Lanez' Memories Don't Die debuts at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.This marks the Canadian rapper's highest debut yet!

The project sold 54,000 units (15,000). His debut album, 2016's I Told You, opened at No. 4 on the charts,, selling 52,000 units.

Tory shared the news with the world on Twitter in utter excitement. " I SOLD 54,000 first week .... NO SINGLE on Radio ... NO CO-SIGN ... that’s what i call one loyal ass real FANBASE !! thank u all," Lanez tweeted.

Even with the slight hiccup of losing Nicki Minaj as a guest feature on the project, the album is truly amazing and features other industry heavy hitters, such as Wiz Khalifa, 50 Cent, Fabolous, Future and more. While the album does contain commercial hits, it actually manages to bring back that vintage mixtape Tory back and tells an amazing story.

As far as the other spots on the top 10, Black Panther: The Album remains at No. 1 for a third week straight! Migos' Culture II drops to No. 4, Ed Sheeran's ÷ sits at No. 5, and Post Malone's Stoney jumps to No. 6.

Congratulations Tory!
