J. Cole has his own slice of history on the Billboard 200 chart. According to Billboard, the Dreamville Records boss notched his sixth No. 1 effort as The Off-Season topped the Billboard 200 with roughly 282,000 total album-equivalent units earned in its opening week.
On Twitter Friday (May 21), Cole thanked the fans for their support.
“Sending a thank you from Rwanda!” he wrote. “#1 album, I appreciate the love, i heard the noise from out here. the off-season means keep pushing yourself, I will do the same.”
Of Cole’s six efforts, only his 2013 Born Sinner album didn’t debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album was bested by Kanye West’s Yeezus effort but rose to No. 1 in its third week on the chart.
