Pooh Shiesty has been one of the hottest breakout rappers of 2021 so far as he kicked off the year with his “Back In Blood” single featuring Lil Durk. That skyrocketed to the top of the charts on streaming apps such as Apple Music and Spotify. He also put out bangers such as “Guard Up” and “Twerksum.” He’s also signed to Gucci Mane’s 1017 record label.
The Memphis rapper also released his “Shiesty Season” mixtape last week and it’s been doing huge numbers. This project also topped the charts on streaming services. The mixtape contains 17 tracks with other appearances from 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, and more. Now, the final numbers are in for first week sales.
According to Chart Data, Shiesty will be at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart. This is after selling 65,000 units. Morgan Wallen, despite being canceled for being caught using the N-word on video in Nashville, is No. 1 with 157,00” units for his “Dangerous: The Double Album.” The Weeknd’s “The Highlights” is No. 3 with 89,000 units. Lil Durk’s “The Voice” and Pop Smoke’s “Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon” are also at No. 5 & 6.
Shiesty also made another power move today as he’s on the “Judas and The Black Messiah” movie soundtrack. His “No Profanity” record was featured as a placement on that project.
