Though PARTYNEXTDOOR’s P3 and Rae Sremmurd’s SremmLife 2 debuted on the Billboard 200’s top 10 list, neither was able to surpass the Suicide Squad soundtrack or Drake’s chart-dominating project VIEWS.
According to Billboard, P3 landed at No. 3, while SremmLife 2 took the No. 7 spot, earning 50,000 and 27,000 units, respectively. Out of those figures, PND’s release sold 28,000 physical copies, while Rae Sremmurd’s moved 14,000.
