Lil Baby continues to shine. 🏆

Earning its fifth total week – fourth in a row – atop the Billboard 200, Lil Baby's My Turn has now spent the most weeks at No. 1 of any album in 2020. Post Malone's Hollywood Bleeding was the last album to reign for five weeks, falling from the position in late November last year.

Pushing 70,000 equivalent album units, My Turn surpasses After Hours from The Weeknd, which has amassed four weeks in the premiere chart position this year.

Baby's sophomore effort originally debuted as the Billboard 200 leader in mid-March before exiting and later returning to the throne a few weeks after the six-song deluxe version dropped, helmed by the minimalistic anthem "We Paid" featuring 4PF's 42 Dugg.

When My Turn reclaimed the chart crown in early June, it also became the longest-leading album released by the Atlanta-based label Quality Control. Previously, QC had hit No. 1 with Migos' Culture and Culture II, which each spent one week

Sitting behind Baby is Lil Durk, whose Just Cause Y’all Waited 2 leaped all the way from No. 56 to a new peak of No. 2 following the release of its deluxe version on June 26. With Baby appearing alongside Polo G on "3 Headed Goat," the album debuted at No. 5 with 57,000 units in late May.

But Baby's dominance is poised to come to an end next week, as Pop Smoke's posthumous debut album Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon is reportedly on pace to sell upwards of 175,000 units. Nevertheless, Baby will still be around – he's featured with DaBaby on the record's third song, "For The Night."

Shoot For The Stars would be Pop's first chart-leading debut. His earlier mixtape, Meet The Woo 2, assumed the No. 7 position in February.
