Megan Thee Stallion’s long awaited debut album Good News has made its Billboard 200 debut with over 100,500 total album-equivalent units earned. The project landed at No. 2 on this week’s chart, just behind K-Pop group BTS’s Be album.
The album gained most of its traction via streaming. According to Billboard, the album is the most streamed project of the week with 115.85 million on-demand streams. The 17-track album also pulled in roughly 16,000 in traditional album sales and over 2,000 track equivalent album units.
Meg’s No. 2 position is her best debut on the chart following her Suga EP and Fever mixtape, which both earned Top 10 debuts in 2019 and 2020, respectively. Fever debuted at No. 10 in 2019 powered by the Houston rapper’s single “Cash Shit” with DaBaby and Suga debuted at No. 7 earlier this year led by the original version of “Savage”.
The remix of “Savage” featuring Beyoncé went No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this year and is included on Good News.

The promotion of Good News has been in overdrive in the past two weeks, whether it be Meg’s eye-opening bars on “Shots Fired” or the made for TikTok anthem “Body,” which spawned an entire dance challenge.
Meg’s latest Billboard achievement caps a banner week of “good news” for the Houston native. She officially became a Grammy-nominated artist on Wednesday, picking up nominations for Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance.
