Tyler, the Creator Hits No. 1 With ‘Call Me if You Get Lost’

Tyler, the Creator notches his second No. 1 on the Billboard album chart this week with “Call Me if You Get Lost,” while BTS remains atop the singles chart with “Butter.”

“Call Me if You Get Lost” had the equivalent of 169,000 sales in the United States in its opening week, including 153 million streams, according to MRC Data, Billboard’s tracking arm. Its take also counted 55,000 copies of the album sold as a complete package, many from box sets sold through Tyler’s website. According to Billboard, 40,000 copies of the “Call Me” were sold on CD, 10,000 on cassette and 5,000 as digital downloads.

Tyler’s last album, “Igor,” opened at No. 1 two years ago, and his previous four solo studio LPs all reached the Top 5.

Also this week, Doja Cat’s new “Planet Her” opened at No. 2 with the equivalent of 109,000 sales, including 132 million streams and 10,000 copies sold as a complete package. The album features guest spots by the Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Young Thug and SZA.

Olivia Rodrigo’s “Sour,” last week’s top seller, fell to No. 3 in its sixth week out. Lil Baby and Lil Durk’s “The Voice of the Heroes” is No. 4, and Polo G’s “Hall of Fame” is in fifth place.

On the Hot 100 singles chart, which tracks the popularity of songs through streaming, radio plays and downloads, BTS’s “Butter” holds the No. 1 spot for a sixth week, largely as a result of download sales.

“Butter” has had the longest run at the top in 2021 since Rodrigo’s “Drivers License,” which was No. 1 for eight weeks at the start of the year.
