Sharing is caring!

Playboi Carti is arguably one of the most enigmatic artists in the world of hip hop. The Georgian rapper has just proven it with an unprecedented feat thanks to his second album ”  Whole Lotta Red  ” officially released on Christmas Day last year.

Playboi Carti, a one-of-a-kind rapper

From his affinity for costumes to tweets from Rick Owens who often make it seem like he speaks a language he himself invented and perfected over the past five years, rapper Playboi Carti  does it all. to show he’s got something different. Backed by one of music’s most intense fan bases,  the rapper  sometimes feels more like a leader more than a musician, and based on the appearance of his shows, the smash hitmaker does is more to demonstrate.

“Whole Lotta Red” the cult album that shatters records!

Playboi Carti landed their No. 1 debut album on the Billboard 200 with the release of ”  Whole Lotta Red “. The album, released on Christmas Day 2020, sold 100,000 units and received 160 million streams worldwide in its first week. Additionally, ”  Whole Lotta Red  ” was # 1 when it was released on Twitter, and the tracks on the album occupied three of the top ten trending on YouTube, including # 1 when they were released.

“  Whole Lotta Red  ” features 24 tracks featuring appearances by rap superstars Future,  Kid Cudi , and  Kanye West . This is Playboi Carti’s second studio album, after Die Lit, which was released in 2018 and debuted at # 3 on the Billboard 200 charts. It has recorded over 1.6 billion streams for its tracks at this day.

“Whole Lotta Red” exceeds half a million copies and receives a gold certificate

According to Chartdata on Twitter, Whole Lotta Red surpassed the 500,000 sales threshold , earning the record for an RIAA Gold certification . And while Carti broke her promise that her next album, Narcissist, would be released on her birthday in September, it’s clear The Vamps are still spinning Whole Lotta Red. With the 24 sensational tracks and the presence of tenors like Kanye West ,  Future  and  Kid Cudi  for the featurings, the album Whole Lotta Red obviously had everything to succeed.
