Even with all the anticipation and hype surrounding Megan Thee Stallion's first official album, 'Good News,' the Houston rapper wasn't able to earn enough commercial attention to snag the throne on the Billboard 200.
Still, 'Good News' achieved a strong No. 2 on the chart in its debut week after pushing 105,000 equivalent album units. It was also the most-streamed drop of the week with nearly 116 million plays, per Billboard.
Ahead of Meg is the K-pop supergroup BTS and their latest project, 'Be,' which dropped on the same day (Nov. 20) as 'Good News.' Selling 242,000 copies, an incredible 177,000 of which were physical albums, BTS now has five total No. 1 projects.
She's certainly not trippin' about her runner-up position, as she thanked her 17.5 million Instagram followers for the love: "We just keep beating the odds hotties !! Doing everything they said we couldn’t !! Thank y’all so much for always supporting me and I promise to keep getting better for y’all."
Helping drive Meg's Billboard success is, of course, the hottest dance craze taking over the internet: the #bodyodychallenge. She's been reposting her favorite entries including a clip from Jennifer Lopez as well as a viral family that got grandpa and grandma shaking their knees.
Another interactive piece of content getting fans excited is "Thee Hottie Newspaper" which shouts out Meg's most public supporters. You can continue bumping 'Good News' on all streaming platforms.
