In what proved to be a three-album race for the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200chart, this week, Lana Del Rey’s Lust for Life emerged victorious over Tyler, the Creator’s Flower Boy (No. 2) and Meek Mill’s Wins and Losses (No. 3).
Rather than sulk in dismay, Tyler celebrated his project’s success on Twitter late Thursday afternoon (Aug. 3). “106k first week, shoes sold out everywhere including asia and new tv show premieres tonight (nuts n bolts on vice) good week yall,” he wrote.
Despite earning second place honors to Del Rey, Tyler wasn’t a sore loser in his defeat. On Wednesday, the boisterous MC congratulated the singer on her latest accolade. “106 COOL THO IM HYPED VERY HYPED YAY. CONGRATS UNCLE TONY @LanaDelRey,” he wrote.
